First hour: Were Peter Myers and I “pursuing racism” in last week’s show Harvey Weinstein’s disgrace: A major event in the culture war? If so, I didn’t mean to be. But that was Joel Simpson’s first reaction. He wrote to a listener who had plugged the show:

“There are Jews in organized crime, Jews who abuse their families, Jewish murderers, just as there are violators in every other ethnicity. But if you think you’re ‘onto’ something, I must warn you that this is a form of racism you and Kevin are pursuing and is very odious to us Jews. Again I’ll say: any moral judgment of an ethnic group—a group people belong to be birth and not choice—is a form of racism. I have no objection to making moral judgments of Zionists or any other ideological group. But trying to derive some sort of insight here about the turpitude of Jews is as wrongheaded as trying to do it with Italians or Irish or any other ethnic group. Every group has its stereotypes, and if we’re evolved thinkers we eschew them. We realize that we don’t know anything about the moral character of a person simply by knowing that person’s ethnicity. I’ve learned this over and over in my life, since I was not free of prejudices either.”

I thought we were doing ideological/cultural/religious critique. Just as it’s fine to discuss the way Muslims in Saudi Arabia or Iran or Egypt (or Christians in Russia) view issues of “gay rights” and sexual morality in general through the prism of their religious/ideological worldview, it is perfectly legitimate to do the same kind of analysis on Jewish-dominated Hollywood. Isn’t it? Tune in, listen to what Joel has to say, and decide for yourself.

Joel Simpson has “had careers in college teaching, jazz piano and music software” but is happiest now as a professional photographer. He also has a good eye for truth (as opposed to “public myth.”) Check out my earlier interview with him, on deep state issues, HERE.

Second hour: Henry Herskovitz of Deir Yassin Remembered offers a third opinion on the controversy. Henry hails from a Jewish background, but no longer considers himself a member of the tribe. Henry is well known in Ann Arbor, Michigan for picketing his local synagogue every Saturday in protest against the Palestinian genocide. Recently a local attorney, Jessica Lieberman, was convicted and sentenced for stealing one of Henry’s group’s protest signs.

  1. As with many phenomina of nature, analysis of Existance or First Cause comes back to a binomial explanation.

    Kabbalah, Pantheism, Atheism, Dualism and so on all come down to “Emanation” – the unfolding and enfolding priniciple. The creative principle unfolds and then enfolds into the new reality – the world is god. A subset is that we are minigods and of course the Chosen People are greater mingods as YHWH was a demierge who inseminated the daughters of Isreal. Classic Dualism and Gnosis – with good spirit trapped in evil matter. This still begs the question of First Cause. Modern Zionists conveniently forget that Judea was not Israel and Israel has dispersed to all corners of the earth, with many acceding to the Tyranny of Logos and becoming Christians. The Chosen People have been chosen by the Sanhedron and corraled by the Rabbis into believing in the Hateful Pharasaic Talmudic Creed which is their prison and poison. The Truth shall set you free.

    Catholics believe in a Benovalent and Loving extant Creator God – God is Good and Love is Life. Creation is a reflection of that. “Image and Likeness of God” are words that spring to mind.

    The contrast between these two concepts is stark and obvious – one is for Life and Love, the other is a Cult of Death and Hate.

  2. If I say , “The best pasta in New York”, who do people think of ? If I say, “Green Beer”, who do people think of ? If I say, “Pretentious Queen’s with a penchant for territorial acquisition”, ? “Champagne” ?
    “A guy who is good with money and movies, but is a sexual deviant” ? “Wild West” ? “Touchdown celebration” ? “Jesus appearing in the toast” ?
    The point is, that reputations are not assigned, they are learned. The teacher is the holder and distributer.
    Race has nothing to do with it. Culture is the thing that promotes likeness in behavior. I recognize many cultures and origins. But I only see 4 races of humanity. Thermostat wire, BRYW.
