Looks like the best tool in the anti-fascist arsenal just might be the Internets, after all. Look who’s the latest to get leaked on Wikileaks:
The leak went public on November 14–the day Irving was slated to speak in New York City. No word on precisely where. This secrecy was apparently what prompted the hacking, according to the Phoenix New Times (and the leak itself). In the process, it turns out that his buxom blond assistant, Jaenelle Antas, who even posted to Stormfront on his behalf (iiiiiiiiick!), is getting fed up with the way he treats her:
Attached is an email message database for the controversial holocaust historian David Irving. The email addresses used by Mr. Irving are email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. The data was passed to WikiLeaks by an anti-fascist hacker.
Hmmm. I wonder if this speaking engagement was one of the bookings she speaks of. Probably is!And speaking of the engagement, here’s a message revealing the probable venue:
You asked for more advance notice if I wanted to flounce out–I am considering it. You were very well behaved on this whole tour up until this past week when you have been snotty, rude, and disrespectful towards me. This is exactly the same way you behaved last summer and the very reason I flounced out then.I don’t care if you are frustrated, angry, stressed out, tired, or whatever–treating anybody the way you have been treating me is unacceptable. I bend over backwards to help you out on this tour, doing jobs that last year you would have done yourself, and not just making bookings, but also doing things like driving, helping you secure funds to reprint books and locating second-hand books. The only thanks I usually get are long whines about how something isn’t exactly perfect.Why would anybody in the world want to work with or even be friends with someone who is acting the way you have been acting lately? You like to say you treat me better than anyone else does, but the truth is, lately you have treated me worse than anyone else ever has. It hurts my feelings, it makes me angry and resentful, and it makes me question whether or not I should be doing this job anymore.
“Peace”? Oh boy, somebody is in for major embarrassment now. He’s the “editorial director” for this slimy revisionist site. You can read more about him and the kind of bogus “hidden history” he espouses here. And here is another interesting indictment of his character, and that of those he pals around with and/or inspires to new heights of paranoia.And surprise! He’s on Stormfront, too. So much for his playing-both-sides denials that he’s an antisemite. You don’t find anyone there who’s not one.BTW, the event was cancelled when the Kolping Society got wind of what was really going on. Looks good on ya, Michael.And here are some other major embarrassments for you to peruse and chuckle over:

That’s from Irving to his lovely assistant. I wonder what he meant by (b)…

Uh oh, looks like somebody’s been outed! Heh heh heh. (This one was apparently also at the NYC engagement–or rather, hoping to be.)And here’s one that frankly creeps me out:
Question about this Saturday in NYCFrom: Allen Rouse
To: firstname.lastname@example.orgDate: Thu, Nov 12, 2009 12:37 pmHello Mr.Irving,My name is Allen Rouse and my wife and I will be attending your talk this Saturday in NYC. I am part of the media group at Stormfront, I do a weekly program on Stormfront Radio called “The Staropramen Show”, Staropramen is my username there. I would like to know if it would be possible for me to videotape the talk on Saturday for Stormfront. Don Black, SF’s proprietor has informed us that a major overhaul is being done to the site in the coming weeks which will include our own video hosting capabilities and it would be nice to have this talk for this new feature. I look forward to meeting you and enjoying your always brilliant and informative talks. Yours truly, Allen Rouse/Staropramen
The signature says he’s a second lieutenant in the US Air Force. Uh, USAF? You may want to vet your officers more closely. Just a friendly suggestion.You may also want to take a closer look at this one, while you’re at it:
Larry D—- [email@example.com] has written:I enjoyed your Houston lecture very much and was glad to see that you were well, especially because you have been through quite a bit since I saw you in Idahosome four years ago. I have been a fan for years, but I found particularinterest in last night’s talk due to the fact that I have just embarked on a newcareer in Military Intelligence. I find myself referencing WW2 with each newconcept I learn in training, resulting in [I believe] a better understanding ofthe material than my peers who do not study history. For this knowledge of WW2, I thank you. Your books are quite compelling and have been my favorites.Your lovely assistant mentioned that she will send a copy of your web-archiveson disk, just as you agreed to do for another gentlemen in attendance lastnight. I thank you (both) very much.Your tour of Rastenburg looks as if it is a one of a kind event. I do hope thatthings go well enough in order for you to have a second one; I will be unable togo to this one, as I will still be in training. Perhaps I can follow your trip online.Kindest Regards,
The signed name (and home address) is that of an Air Force colonel in Alabama. Yeek. If this he’s on active duty, he should definitely come to the generals’ attention, no?Here you go, Generals dear–check ’em all out for yourselves: That Wikleaks link, again… I stripped the major identifiers from them here, but you can find the uncensored versions there without undue difficulty. Happy hunting!And maybe it’s time to consider just what the ramifications of protecting Nazi nonsense under the rubric of “free speech” really are, eh? After all, didn’t your forces fight against this during World War II? Be a damned shame if it ended up destroying what you’ve pledged to defend, no?
Montgomery,AL VisitFrom: firstname.lastname@example.orgTo: Focalp@aol.comDate: Tue, Oct 20, 2009 2:18 pmWill be out of town in Gulf Shores, AL playing in a golf tournament during yourvisit. I look forward to your new WW II book.Sorry I am going to miss this visit. I will send a donation to Key West to helpwith expenses.
Two questions:1.If I could arrange it, would you be interested in speaking at the US Air Forcetop professional military officers school the Air War College located here inMontgomery at Maxwell AFB on some future visits? The college has about 300colonels/ lieutenant colonels in attendance. I was a senior faculty member atthe College when I retired. 2. What did you think of Pat Buchanan’s book “Churchill, Hitler, and theUnnecessary War”? Respectfully,
