Brad Friedman's Moderator Tied to Anti-Semitism and Holocaust Denial

Brad Friedman of BradBlog and Velvet Revolution has a moderator named Agent99. She hangs out at a dive called Big Dan's Big Blog. Prolific anti-semites named Plunger and Z are known to dwell there also. One common spiel there is to ramble on about a global conspiracy run by the Joos. Agent99 also has her own website called neufneuf.blogspot. There folks can see that she links to both Plunger and Big Dan.

She also links to a holocaust denial article.

That's a broken link, but I was able to find its contents through the googler. The #1 search result which contains it is from the Zundel holocaust denial website. Fancy that.

Now before anyone suggests she was supplying it without endorsing its contents, the following post she made at BradBlog should take care of any such doubts. The holocaust denial conference took place in January of this year. Check out the date of Agent99's post below, and what she was astroturfing.

Here is an excerpt from US News & World Report on the conference.

Iran's Ahmadinejad Endorses Another Holocaust Denial Conference
By Larry Derfner, Mideast Watch
January 30, 2009

The Obama administration's expressed intention to try direct diplomacy with Iran has been rebuffed, at least publicly, by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who demanded an American "apology" for past injustices against his nation. Now, in another statement unlikely to win friends in Washington (not to mention Jerusalem), Ahmadinejad has again cast his lot with Holocaust deniers, sending a message of encouragement to a Tehran conference titled "Holocaust? A Sacred Lie by the West." The official Iran News Daily reports:

"Zionists are plundering nations' resources and their wealth by making use of politicians and political parties as well as dominating most of the world's power, wealth and media sources," said the president in a message sent to a conference on Holocaust held in the Sharif University of Technology in Tehran ...

President Ahmadinejad added that the Zionist regime is the "illegitimate child" of the Holocaust phenomenon.

Why is an anti-semite and her pack of sycophants allowed to dominate the BradBlog? I once asked Agent99 directly about her blogging history and how she became the moderator. She said she didn't really blog much before joining BradBlog. She said Brad was getting overtaxed with comments flooding in, and she offered to help, and he accepted. Well, months back I tried to find where she was christened moderator. I tried to see what kind of contributions she made before getting the position. I saw next to nothing. It was like one day she didn't exist or was a non-frequent guest, and all of a sudden she had the reins of power to run the BradBlog. That is analogous to the strange affiliation between Brad and Speedway Bomber Brett Kimberlin. Brett came out with a substantial offer for election fraud whistleblowers. Brad was intrigued and contacted him. In two days from November 10th to November 12th, 2004, Velvet Revolution formed. Brad has never fully explained how their alliance exactly came about. The only place I've seen him come close was in Time Magazine's Wizard of Odd article. Brad has never mentioned anything about Brett Kimberlin's easily provable convictions for drug smuggling, perjury, and setting bombs. Larisa Alexandrovna, however, went out of her way to say Mark Singer wet his pants, that Brett is an exonerated, ex-political prisoner. Yeah, that's the ticket!

Now I see that Agent99 has put up a lot of pictures of herself at her website. I don't have the paystub to prove she is paid disinfo. She could merely be the proverbial misguided useful idiot. But a part of me thinks this could be a ploy to say hey look at me, here are my pictures. This proves I'm not a disinfo fake! I'll only put up a few of them, because to be honest, she's not exactly eye candy.

This next one, I can't help but think of the word Satan.

Whenever we stand up to those who deny or minimize genocide we send a critical message to the world. As we continue to live in an age of genocide and ethnic cleansing, we must repel the broken ethics of our ancestors, or risk a dreadful repeat of past transgressions. We know from captured German war records that millions of innocent Jews were systematically exterminated by Nazi Germany - most in gas chambers. These facts have been proven repeatedly through countless thesis and dissertation research papers. Virtually every PhD in the world will stake their career on known Holocaust facts. Despite this knowledge, Holocaust deniers ply their mendacious poison everywhere, especially with young people on the Internet. Such deniers have only one agenda - to distort the truth in a way that promotes antagonism against the object of their hatred, or to deny the culpability of their ancestors and heroes.

Museums and mandatory public education are tools to dispel bigotry, especially racial and ethnic hatred. Books and films can also establish the veracity of genocides, such as recent Holocaust films. They help to tell the true story of the perpetrators of genocide; and they reveal the abject terror, humiliation and degradation resulting from such blind loathing and prejudice. It is therefore essential that we disclose the factual brutality and horror of genocide, combating the deniers’ virulent, inaccurate historical revision. We must protect vulnerable future generations from making the same mistakes.

A world that continues to allow genocide requires ethical remediation. Books, films and required public education about genocide can help to reduce such unacceptable behavior. We must show the world that religious, racial, ethnic and gender persecution is wrong; and that tolerance is our progeny's only hope. Only through such efforts can we reveal the true horror of genocide and promote the triumphant spirit of humankind.

Thanks for the post, Charles. These types of fools are all over the net. Yet, that's becoming common knowledge through people like yourself standing up to it. This goes beyond the horror which is the Middle East peace process. My heart goes out to the Palestinians. My heart goes out to progressive Israelis. The "Joo" hate is something different from that. Its festering is obfuscating a clear path to peace and justice in that troubled area. I believe such anti-semites are the Palestinians' worst enemies. They are actually encouraging the fascist leaning politicians while hurting the Israeli Left. This subject actually has a name. It is referred to as right woos left, and it utterly disgusts me.
