Six year sentence for revisionist lawyer

Horst Mahler Jailed

Horst Mahler

The revisionist, political activist and lawyer Horst Mahler has been sentenced to six years in a German prison. The following German news report has been translated by J.M. Damon.

Six Years for Mahler’s Crime of Opinion!
Dissident Led from Courtroom in Chains

The Munich District Court has sentenced former Nationalist Attorney Horst Mahler to six years in prison. The 72-year-old was convicted of a variety of opinion crimes.

Two weeks ago he was sentenced to ten months’ imprisonment for similar crimes of conscience by a court in Landshut. A third sentence is still to be pronounced by Potsdam Court.

In that trial, likewise on charges of uttering criminal opinions, the prosecutor has asked for four years and nine months. Mahler’s combined sentences could come to 12 years and 5 months.

Mahler persists in expressing skepticism about the “Holocaust” Cult, which is the official state dogma of the pro Zionist regime in Germany. The regime interprets such skepticism as incitement against all Jews, even though Jews are among the most outspoken critics of “Shoah Business” or “Holocaust Industry” (expressions coined by the Jews Abba Eban and Norman Finkelstein.)

The Munich court convicted the 72-year-old disbarred attorney of referring to “Holocaust” as “the greatest lie in all human history.”

Mahler had also mailed CDs of Diploma Engineer Germar Rudolf’s proscribed book “Lectures on the Holocaust” to a number of persons. On 14 November 2007, as part of the movement for human rights in Germany, he had filed an official complaint against himself.

In an accompanying letter to the recipients of the CDs he had pointed out that they would have to testify against him in his trial. He instructed them to state that he had written, “I understand and accept that I will be tried and sentenced for this act.” Now he has received a sentence that surpasses those of other political dissidents by far.

Mahler’s trial makes clear that merely merely pointing out that “Holocaust Denial” is involved can legitimize any and all official tyranny. It makes clear that a dissident in “the freest state that ever existed on German soil” as the present regime likes to call itself, can receive a sentence surpassing that of the most violent criminal or murderer.

As some Altermedia readers will recall, in April of last year the stateless Lebanese Josef Ahmad year was sentenced by Aachen District Court to exactly six years for the murder of Kevin Plum. If Mahler had simply beaten a father of several children into a coma, the State might have let him off with a warning and a course in aggression control, as it did in the case of the Turkish bully Erdinc S. of Cologne.

In view of the Mahler’s advanced age, today’s sentence probably means a death sentence for the crime of uttering dissident opinions. It probably makes executioners of his Munich judges. Does it invite comparison with previous ruthless regimes in Germany?

Latest Report: Altermedia was just informed by Philipp Hasselbach, a Free Nationalist, that Mahler was immediately arrested and led in handcuffs from the courtroom. Since he was expecting this, he had brought his packed suitcase along. He had also given his car keys to a friend. There were no surprises!

Here's freedom to him who would speak,
Here's freedom to him who would write;
For there's none ever feared that the truth should be heard,
Save him whom the truth would indict!
ROBERT BURNS (1759–96)
