Holocaust-Denier to Give Speech in West Palm
Tonight at 7, at a still undisclosed location in West Palm Beach, British author David Irving, much loved among white nationalists, will be giving a speech on Nazi history and signing copies of his book, Banged Up: Survival as a Political Prisoner in the 21st Century Europe.
Seems that Irving is keeping the exact location a secret as a way to avoid the political demonstrations that marked his recent appearance in Portland, where he and his supporters' efforts weren't quite devious enough.
Nick, a would-be protester in West Palm, tipped off Juice on Friday to Irving's appearance. "Unfortunately we haven't found out where Irving will be speaking," he said today. "We've called just about every hotel in the city, without any luck."
"The event is billed as a 'dinner,'" Nick continued, "So maybe it's being held at a local restaurant? There are people ready to protest if we discover anything today."
A Holocaust denier, Irving probably chose West Palm based on the city being the home base of Stormfront.org, where posters swap notes about his appearances.
