ICE Surveillance Video Shows Nazi Hunter Demjanjuk Lied About “Frail Condition,” Suckered Pat Buchanan, Too
By Debbie Schlussel
Last week, as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) went to Nazi mass-murderer John Demjanjuk‘s suburban Cleveland home to arrest him for deportation, he was in a wheelchair moaning and feigning complete disorientation and frailty.
And because of this alleged “frailty,” Judges stayed Demjanjuk’s deportation and sent him home, after his son-in-law and other family members filed a motion in court claiming he was deathly ill and that the deportation trip to Germany would kill him. His eternal friend and supporter, the anti-Semite Pat Buchanan, wrote an entire column comparing this Nazi mass murderer to Jesus and calling him “this American Dreyfus.” Buchanan stressed Demjanjuk’s “gravely ill” condition.
But it was–just as we suspected–all an act, a complete fraud perpetrated on the U.S. justice system. And the entire John Demjanjuk family and, apparently, his lawyers, too, were in on it. In fact, the Justice Department released surveillance video taken by ICE agents of the “frail,” “wheelchair-bound” Demjanjuk on April 6th (just a week before ICE agents came to his home), Demjanjuk is shows walking around, laughing, and completely lucid–a far cry from the wheelchair-bound moaning body near death that he played for the cameras and gullible appellate court judges . . . and Pat Buchanan.
Watch the video of John Demjanjuk walking around and completely lucid on April 6th.
Now, watch this video of ICE trying to arrest and deport him, eight days later:
Congrats to the ICE agents who conducted the surveillance and got the video of the real, completely healthy Demjanjuk.
That Buchanan either fell for–or more likely, helped pimp–the fraud is no surprise. This kind of medical fakery on the government is old hat for SS officer Pat. The hawkish Buchanan is a draft dodger who got out of serving in the Vietnam War, after fraudulently claiming he had a bad knee. But, in fact, Buchanan, is an avid runner whose knee is just fine. (Ironically, Buchanan in one of his many anti-Semitic columns wrote that the men who fought in the Vietnam War were “kids with names like McAllister, Murphy, Gonzalez and Leroy Brown” and weren’t Jews. That’s false. In fact, many Jews fought and died in Vietnam, and my own father who was drafted during that war served proudly in the U.S. Army. But one person who neither died, nor fought, nor even ever served–because he gamed the system to get out of it–was named Patrick J. Buchanan.)
But even with this video, as I’ve noted before:
In the end, Demjanjuk has the last laugh. . . . [H]e is 89 and has lived a long life on U.S. soil, gaming the system for decades. His victims long ago incinerated, many of them at less than a quarter of the years he’s lived.
Decades past time to deport Demjanjuk. Deport him NOW!
