Why Doesn't the Register Take OC's Holocaust Deniers Seriously?

Really, Whiting is just clueless. In a column last week on how we need to live by Gene Autrey's Cowboy Code (GREAT way to connect to those young readers!), Whiting wrote this curious line: "We listen to comments like the one I heard recently implying that our county is a center for Holocaust deniers (a guy with a website does not a 'center' make)." He's referring, of course, to Mark Weber and his Institute for Historical Review, the country's premier Holocaust-denying publisher. And he probably isn't aware that this afternoon, one of the world's most notorious Holocaust deniers, Bradley Smith (a former worker at the IHR), will speak at Cal State Fullerton.
It's easy to dismiss Weber as a lone loon, but that flies in the face of his tax records, and his recent alliances with known white supremacists that suggest the IHR is only beginning to expand its reach.
"A guy with a website"? David must think the California Coalition for Immigration Reform is just a retiree's bocce league, probably...
