Largest Holocaust denial forum is run by UCLA library assistant
It hasn’t been a secret for many years, but before this we only had indirect (though pretty damn iron-clad) confirmation that the main moderator (going under the nickname “Hannover”) at the vile CODOH forum is none other than Jonnie Hargis, a library assistant at UCLA. Some of you may remember Hargis from a minor controversy years ago, when he was suspended from work for an anti-Israel message. He appeared on CNN and on Democracy Now.
But now CODOH moderator’s identity as Hargis has been confirmed by none other than Bradley Smith, CODOH’s founder. In an email to James Fetzer (professor emeritus at the University of Minnesota Duluth and a well-known conspiracy theorist), which was also copied to our friend Dr. Andrew Mathis of the Holocaust History Project, Smith writes openly about Hargis being the CODOH forum moderator:
Now the question is: does Hargis moderate the Nazi/HD forum from his workplace?
I’m outside the loop here. Busy. I wrote you a few minutes ago, the computer went down, you may have gotten the message but maybe not, so here I am again. Today I’ll be out of office.
You can probably surmise that we will end up having a different story about Mathis/Codoh than Mathis has. For myself, I don’t want to bother with the guy. He’s been obsessed with Hargis and CODOH for ten years or more. The last time we spoke, maybe six, eight, ten years ago he was so obsessed with Hargis that it occured to me that he was in love, I suggested same, Mathis hung up and I have been relieved of his presence from that day till this.
You sound perfectly rational. We may have done something wrong here, I don’t know. Hargis is not perfect, but he has managed the Forum since the begining (sic), it is very demanding, there is no one else online who has don’t (sic) anything like what he has done. Again, he’s not perfect, I’m not perfect, CODOH is not perfect, but I am doing the best I can with a minuscule budget, against orgs with million-dollar budgets, and a professorial class that is unwilling to take seriously the right, the necessity, for a free exchange of ideas on the H. story.
You appear to be an exception (like I say, I am outside the exchange for now) to this generality and I would like to find out what is going on. Can’t today. I have to go to the other side.
But with re to Mathis, you will have to deal with the little love-sick puppy without me.
