Welp, Someone’s Been Chucking Holocaust-Denying Flyers Around Melbourne Uni


Some charming, joyful sort – who we wager is an absolute fkn riot at parties – has apparently taken it upon themselves to blanket a car park at the University of Melbourne with Holocaust Denying flyers.
Around 300-odd flyers were apparently scattered across a car park at the Uni’s city campus on Monday – the first day of semester – all of which contained woefully anti-Semitic slogans, and labelled the Holocaust as the “greatest swindle of all time.
The flyers also lambasted the Uni’s Jewish Studies courses and Holocaust teachings, stating that they were “replete with nonsense, if not sheer fraud.” They also contained a URL for a Holocaust denial website that we assume is definitely well designed and doesn’t at all look like it was made by a brainsick skunk operating Microsoft Frontpage with its anus.
The school confirmed the flyers had been found, but their spread was confined to the University Square car park.
Dr Dvir Abramovich, the chairman of the national Jewish human rights body B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation Commission, spoke to Fairfax Media and slammed the flyers as little more than “white supremacist, hateful propaganda.”

“The racists and bigots who distributed these Holocaust denial materials want to confuse readers by disguising this venom and vileness as a legitimate alternative view of history and are trying to promote the abhorrent message of racism, Nazism and Fascism.”

The University, which has been teaching Jewish and Hebrew studies since 1946, did not report the incident to police. They could not confirm whether or not this was the first time flyers preaching racial hatred had been found or circulated at the University.

And if a crudely photocopied flyer with hand-written nonsense that tries to provide an “alternative account” of indisputable fact somehow manages to flick the lightbulb of bigotry on in the head of a student attending Melbourne’s most prestigious tertiary institution, I will personally eat my own hat along with the hats of several others.
Oy vey.
