Conspiracy group Chemtrails leaves holocaust denial pamphlets on Geelong cars

GEELONG drivers have been bombarded with anti-semitic, holocaust denial propaganda, with pamphlets from conspiracy group Chemtrails left on cars parked in the CBD and at Deakin University.

Vehicles in Myer Street’s Haymarket council carpark and Deakin’s Waurn Ponds Carpark are among sites targeted in recent weeks.

The pamphlets are linked to conspiracy theorists Chemtrails Geelong, which has labelled the holocaust as the greatest swindle of all time.

Deakin holocaust lecturer and historian, Matthew Turner, said he did not view the group, or the distribution of the pamphlets, as safety threats.

“As a historian, I don’t find it [holocaust denial] dangerous,” he said.

“I almost find it amusing … ultimately stupid.”
