References to Holocaust denial in record reviews?

Speaking of Holocaust denial, opening sentence of a review of a new CD by Be Your Own Pet:

Aside from the deaf or those in a level of denial up there with David Irving's idiot pronouncements on the Holocaust, everyone's aware that we live in great times for music.


I'm not sure this sort of reference in the popular media is a good thing or not. On the one hand, it suggests a widespead knowledge that David Irving is a Holocaust denier, otherwise most readers wouldn't understand the reviewer's reference to David Irving. On the other hand, it implies that David Irving is far more well known than he should be, given his crackpot Holocaust denial.

I have no idea if this band is any good (although the reviewer seems to think so) or even if the band's CD is available in the U.S.

Given my post yesterday about the strange things people like to stick up their nether regions, it makes perfect sense to revisit a man who has his head up his ass: David Irving. It's pretty funny to see that his former comrades are none too happy with some of his recent statements: A famed…
He's baaaack. Lovely. I'm referring to everybody's favorite anti-Semite, Hitler apologist, and Holocaust-denying "historian," David Irving, who has reinfected our fair nation. Indeed, and unfortunately, he is busily slithering his way across the western U.S., hitting the mighty white power ranger…
Somehow, someway, a bit of slime oozed its way into a Manhattan church to insinuate itself into that fair city and thereby contaminate it. Somehow, I managed to miss it. Sadly, the world's most famous Holocaust denier, David Irving, is touring the U.S. to give aid and comfort to anti-Semites,…
Since I seem to have attracted several truly idiotic Holocaust deniers in the comments after this post, including, believe it or not, Eric Hunt, the anti-Semite who attacked Elie Wiesel at a San Francisco hotel in 2007 and who now runs a blog full of Holocaust denial and anti-Semitism where he…

That, or James Jam is the Dennis Miller of music reviews. (I wish I had a more obscure reference than Dennis himself; then my comment would be even more Miller-esque.) Now that I think of it, being a good music reviewer implies a level of Millerness. The good ones seem to draw tons of appropriate but nonobvious connections.

Whoa, digression... sorry about that. :)

FWIW, I grew up (in Britain) with David Irving a household name... in the manner of David Icke.
