Tracking the Protocols of the Elders of Zion
(Henry Ford - one of the Protocols most ardent supporters and publishers)
The Protocols of the Elders of Zion has often been called the 'original conspiracy theory' - a known anti-semitic forgery which, despite an abundance of research showing that it is a fake, continues to replicate and spread. The following map is part of a project (for a course at the University of Edinburgh) which attempts to understand how poor research, multi-located narratives and the 'will of the web' can ensure that dangerous, patently false ideas can continue to thrive and thrive. This map attempts to track the spread of the 'Protocols' - a forgery which purports to be the 'secret agenda' of the Jewish people and their plans for global domination.

this is the worst pile of crap i've ever heard. world war II, the holocaust, the horror was documented on film and if people who colluded with nazis are low enough to try justify it by saying the whole thing was a hoax...well i say to those people that they, occupied, persecuted and starved in their own country (like the Jews in Germany) in an effort to wipe them out...well, you would think that those people would be the LAST ones to turn a blind eye and get sucked into conspiracy b.s. and fascist hysteria disguised as tolerant protest...but apparently they are. the lesson goes unlearned, which means your karma soon to follow, as a nation. good luck with that. guess if the holocaust survivors can't talk about it anymore, the famine didn't happen either, right? ask the brits. then don't listen, as usual.
