Michael A. Hoffman II, (born 1954, New York), is an American historian and writer.
He is the managing editor of the newsletter Revisionist History, and describes himself as a "revisionist scholar".

He was educated at the State University of New York at Oswego. He is a former reporter for the New York bureau of the Associated Press and is the author of several books. Hoffman moved from New York to Idaho in 1996. Hoffman now writes mainly on World War II revisionism, current affairs, and the occult roots of freemasonry.

Hoffman's self-described vocation is "researching the occult cryptocracy's orchestration of American history." He believes that this cryptocracy runs American history, controlling culture and thought via ritualistic psychodramas and killing sprees. Examples of such "psychodramas," in Hoffman's view, include Route 66 (which connects various centers of Satanic importance), and the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy[1]. Hoffman also argues that the final plans of this ruling cabal are slowly being revealed through movies such as They Live and The Matrix. Hoffman also contends that the British Empire might have achieved its power via a pact John Dee made with the Devil. He has characterized Jews as "Khazars" and Ashkenazi as "Ash-ken-nazi", He further denies that the gas chambers in Auschwitz and other concentration camps was used for mass murder, and claims that the Holocaust is a fraud perpetrated by Zionists in order to strengthen the state of Israel. He claims that six million Jews were not murdered by the Nazis and asserts that the number was only in the thousands and they died of typhoid and other diseases. These claims are standard assertions of Holocaust deniers.

Another of Hoffman's subjects of study is indentured servitude and slavery in America; he contends that a widespread history of white slavery has been overlooked by most historians. In his They Were White and They Were Slaves, Hoffman attempts to demonstrate a social structure situating poor whites as holding the lowest post in colonial and post-colonial America, even to the point of citing a quote from Eugene D. Genovese in "Toward a New View of America", in which a former black slave in South Carolina, Ella Kelly, refers to the poor whites as the bottom rung, black slaves occupying the middle, and the white planters as the ruling stratum. {cf. Hoffman, pp. 43-44}
