For the second time this year, local music hall Warsaw (261 Driggs Ave.) will host a Holocaust revisionist. Edward Reid, who is scheduled to speak this Sunday at Warsaw, is a self-proclaimed Polish history expert supported by crowdfunding campaigns to “disprove the disinformation that is propagated against Poland” with video content that blames “Jewish collaboration” in Poland during the Holocaust.
Reid’s Patreon (a crowdfunding platform) speaks for itself:
My intention is to disprove the disinformation that is propagated against Poland by using historical accuracy and setting the record straight. For many years and especially now, Poland has been slandered in many ways, especially being accused of being a collaborationist county with the Nazis, as well as overwhelmingly antisemitic, which is absolutely not factual.
This is part of an agenda that is used for many reasons, partially by the Holocaust organizations as well as to maintain the status of keeping one people as the only sacred victim, disregarding others, monopolizing suffering to keep the Poles out of this “holy 6 million”.
To isolate others from their proper place as victims of the terror of Nazism is dishonorable and shameful and to then place those people in the aggressor camp is heartless. For anyone who cares about the truth and passing on the sanctity of the deaths of three million beautiful souls that perished, it is important to fight this attack on the Polish honor.
Reid has been banned from YouTube for alleged hate speech:
They want to stop the truth so bad. They are after me at every corner.
I speak of 447 and it’s corruption and extortion.
I expose the racism and the lies.
They hate me because I bring the light. pic.twitter.com/iNxA1LA6X4

Local politicians including NYC Councilmember Stephen Levin spoke out last June when Warsaw hosted Ewa Kurek, who has also claimed that Jewish people collaborated with Nazis.
After the collective community outrage that led to the Brooklyn Diocesan office canceling anti-Semitic Ewa Kurek’s speaking tour events, I am shocked to see Greenpoint’s @WarsawConcerts hosting her TODAY @4pm.
Cancel this event. Hate has no place here. pic.twitter.com/dyCd9BGmJk

Reid promoted his Warsaw event this week on Twitter as a discussion that Poland is “facing next week.” :
I will be speaking in Connecticut and New York to discuss some of the issues that Poland and the Poles are facing next week.
Certain agendas are at work.
Inbox me if interested. pic.twitter.com/57Ek08bSa0

Earlier this year Robert Winnicki, a far-right leader of Poland’s National Movement, spoke at a now-shuttered Greenpoint restaurant.
