The first time I met David Cole, he was making an appearance on a Montel Williams talk show with a fellow Holocaust Revisionist (they weren’t yet called “Holocaust Deniers”), arguing against antagonistic Holocaust survivors.
I covered the event for my “HelL.A.” column for the San Diego Reader, being particularly curious why this young Jew got himself involved with Holocaust Revisionism. Though Cole claimed that Jews did indeed die at the hands of the Third Reich, he also maintained that the infamous Auschwitz gas chambers were fraudulent. What was in it for David Cole to make that statement before millions on television?
Soon enough, the extremist Jewish Defense League leader Irv Rubin— who many say was involved in the bombing murder of Palestinian activist Alex Odeh — put a $25,000 bounty on David Cole’s head along with threats to his mother and father. In response, David Cole faked his suicide and became David Stein in another incarnation in which he made money producing and directing films discussing the Holocaust in a more Jewish-friendly context. Then “David Stein” became involved in neo-conservative politics, creating the “Republican Party Animals” organization, and assisting the secretive “Friends of Abe” in their partying and fundraising
A hostile ex-girlfriend then outed David Stein as the offensive and naughty David Cole. The neo-cons threw a shit fit at this revelation, and David Cole was no longer a welcome member of these conservative groups.
Cole’s saga, as seen in the forthcoming Feral House book, Republican Party Animal: The “Bad Boy of Holocaust History” Blows the Lid Off Hollywood’s Secret Right-Wing Underground, provides a remarkable perspective of Holocaust Revisionism, homicidal Jews, and culty Hollywood Neo-Cons. It’s a remarkable story.
