Alex Jones: No Tolerance for Anti-Semitism?

At least, that's what Rolling Stone assured its readers in its coverage of the Truther In Chief in the article James linked last week:
Unlike many of his conspiracy-minded predecessors — Henry Ford, the Ku Klux Klan, the militia movement — Jones has no tolerance for racism or anti-Semitism. "There is no globalist command center, and I never make it about certain groups," says Jones, whose wife is of Jewish descent and whose adopted sister Marley is Asian-American. "All humans do the same stuff. Class solidarity should transcend race and religion in the fight against the globalists. Everything they touch turns to mutated death."

Perhaps the writer, Alexander Zaitchik, just took Old Leatherlungs' word for it? Because emailer Jonathan Leman just pointed out to me that Jones sure seems to tolerate some anti-Semitic nonsense on his site. Like this:

The other subtext is that Jews (and Israelis), who are prominent in the banker-run New World Order, are special people, incapable of wrongdoing and immune to criticism. Anyone who opposes their political agenda is a Nazi.

And this:
Jews think Israel was created as a refuge from anti Semitism. In fact, the Jewish holocaust was engineered to induce Jews to build Israel, intended as the capital of the New World Order.

"Inside Zionism", Chapter One of Jewish historian Alfred Lilienthal's The Other Side of the Coin (1965) documents how Zionists had no use for their fellow Jews except as Israelis. Zionists vetoed plans to rescue people like Hana Brady. For example, FDR had a plan to rescue 500,000 Jews but said: "We can't put it over because the Zionist movement won't stand for it."

The same author previously wrote an article for Jones' site on how the Protocols of the Elders of Zion was not a forgery.

We are told that The Protocols of Zion is a hoax, a "proven forgery" concocted by the Tsarist Political Police (the Okhrana) to incite anti Semitism and discredit revolutionaries.

But the "proof" is far from convincing.

With Jewish bankers coming up, can the Jewish-run media be far behind? Nope:
As Jewish-dominated media increasingly persuades the public and government to agree with this stereotype, it will become easier to pass Christian-restricting hate crime laws. All who adhere to the Bible on homosexuality or Jewish complicity in Christ’s death could be subject to state-sponsored prosecution.

None of these articles were written by Alex himself. But they are clearly tolerated on his website. Several of them were written by Henry Makow, who is third on the list of Independent Contributors to Prison Planet, after Alex himself and top flunky Paul Watson.

The paranoid, isolationist, anti-intellectual American fringe has a long tradition of racist hatred of the Jewish people. The origins of this are now the stuff of sociological history, but there have been times when anti-Semitism was the trutherism of its day.

What gets me is that these people can hate an entire race and advocate the most vicious and extreme measures to be taken against people who happen to disagree with them and still think of themselves as moral and decent people. It is like the 9/11 Truther who accuses bereaved relatives and surviving New York firefighters of being part of a murderous, treasonous conspiracy for money and still thinks Truthers should be regarded as other than pond life.

It should be remembered what happened when a bunch of anti-intellectual believers in conspiracy theories were elevated to positions of power.

It was Germany in 1933 and they were called the Nazi Party.

Steve, the only thing I disagree with in your post is that I feel I have to speak up for pond scum.

It's kinda like those Hitler apologists who blame the bad stuff on Himmler and Goebels and claim Hitler didn't know about the death camps.

That is just piss-poor journalism.

I could understand if they'd said he'd never voiced any anti-Semitic comments. I suspect he hasn't, since he's pretty good about keeping his rants just vague enough.

But to say he doesn't tolerate anti-Semitism when Henry Makow and American Free Press are major contributors to his web content, and I can find stuff like this in one Google search... inexcusable.

And of course, half Jones' idiot fans are complaining that it's a smear piece. Sheesh.

Alex Jones is far from vague when it comes to the issue of racism guys :/ He's gone on 30-minute rants against anti-Semitics and always flips out of any guest or caller that attacks Jewish people. But the Israeli government is fair game, alongside that of China, Russia, The U.S., the U.K., North Korea, Iran, Libya and so on.

Throughout history and especially today, power-addicted sociopaths are the most likely type of human beings to rise and remain in power. Just pick up any world history textbook or look at just a few of the dictators in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. This inevitable trend of political corruption transcends race, color and creed.

And it's pretty remarkable that Rolling Stone mentioned that Alex Jones warned us of an imminent false-flag terror attack on the World Trade Center to be blamed on Bin Laden on July 25th of 2001. Good for them.

Yes, he's spoken openly of his hatred for Mexicans many times.

I love it that Jones is talking about "class solidarity" now. He's trying to channel Karl Marx and the far right at the same time.

Ah yes, the old "he's not anti-Semitic, he's anti-Zionist" excuse. You're not fooling anyone with that horseshit.

The example article I linked above certainly makes no reference to Israeli government policy.
