Bush Regime Redefines Reality Again

New U.S. Gov't Report Misrepresents Holocaust-Deniers As 'Scholars'

new U.S. government report refers to Holocaust-deniers as "scholars and researchers," prompting the David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies to call for the report to be recalled from circulation and corrected. "Holocaust-deniers are not scholars or researchers -- they are bigots who try to hide their anti-semitism behind the mask of fake scholarship," said Wyman Institute Director Dr. Rafael Medoff. "For a U.S. government report to call them 'scholars' gives them the legitimacy they desperately crave but do not deserve." ... The Wyman Institute points out that the U.S. State Department officially considers Holocaust-denial to be a form of antisemitism. In the State Department's January 2005 "Report on Global Anti-Semitism," there are nine separate references to incidents of Holocaust-denial included among the report's listing of anti-semitic incidents in various countries.
I see a connection between this report and Bush's saying that Intelligent Design should be taught in schools. If Intelligent Design is "science", then Holocaust denial is "scholarship". They're both intended to undermine valid research and scholarship.
