Last week on SGU, the guys and I were chatting about ye ol’ WTC 7 collapse and about how Truthers are still insisting that there’s no way it could have collapsed without being purposely demolished by a slimy money-grubbing Jew real estate mogul. I mentioned as an aside that not only is their science all screwed up, but a lot of them are just giant anti-semites. Well! One person wrote in to correct me on that point: it turns out, the 9/11 Truth Movement is not full of anti-semites because Ed Asner.

Message: I think your response was a bunch of crap last week when you answered that question about building -7. Your show responded that buildings collapse like that all the time; and that is totally false. You also sunk down low and said that the truth movement and “Architects and Engineers for 9/11” truth were full of anti-Semites. If you go on YouTube and look at their postings Ed Asner is a major part of the movement, and he is Jewish; so is he an anti-Semite?

Just because people look into things and realize there there are many Jews involved in the worst corruption, and organized crime in this country; doesn’t really mean they hate all Jews. But the more you say that, if just makes you look like you are trying to use political correctness to shut people up. And it turns people who have no problems with Jew, into anti-Semites. So keep it up!

Keep it up! I am proud to be an anti-Semite! I wasn’t raised to be; but I became one; because of people like you! I noticed that the Jews in the media called everyone who was against the Federal Reserve an anti-Semite. I also noticed that the Jews in the media also said that anyone that points out the fact that Jews monopolize the media, were also an anti-Semites. So I did my own research and found out that Jews do run the media and the Federal Reserve is basically a worldwide Jewish Mafia. They use their media control to cover up the fact that America is controlled by Jewish Mafia. That made me an anti-Semite.

I guess I just don’t like liars. I know that according to the Jewish religion that it is not a sin for Jews to lie to non Jews; and that explains a lot about the lies in our media and government. So until the good Jews start calling out the bad Jews; anti-Semitism will grow. And really it needs to grow for America to be saved. So there are good Jews like Ed Asner, but they seem to be far outnumbered buy the corrupt Jews, like the ones that run CNN and have Dr. Drew (Dr. Jew) up there being paid off by drug companies to push drugs on everyone. Kind of like your show is titled the “Skeptics guide” but all you do is defend the official lies. Kind of like Bill Mars show is called “Politically Incorrect” but all he does is present the Politically correct point of view. Anyway so I guess my point is keep calling everyone Anti-Semites! It helps us!! Thanks, keep up the good work!! People will eventually be able to see what you are doing.

P.S. Even the term anti-Semite is a Jewish lie. Judaism is a religion not a race. Many Jews are from the Southern Russian Regions of Europe; they are, and never will be Semites. Many Semites are not Jewish; like the Palestinians. So again everything about the Jews seems to be a lie. Jews always act like they are some oppressed minority, even though they are the ruling class. Jews act like they have been so oppressed, when some of the biggest slave owners in the South were Jewish. Even the custom of changing your names, like Mike Weiner (AKA. Mike Savage) shows a pattern of lies and deceit. Always pointing the finger at the Nazis, but not at the Jewish Bolsheviks. How many movies have been made about the Bolsheviks? Zero? Gee why is that? Could it be Jewish control of Hollywood? I wonder.lol!

So of course the “truth” movement will be called anti-Semitic by many Jews; because the truth itself is anti-Semitic. I don’t know, I have had three Jewish friends and they were all pretty good people; but your community does seem to have some moral issues you need to work out. The good Jews are defiantly at the bottom of the power structure of the religion. But again I like the show because it demonstrates all of my theories about Jews; very entertaining!

Okay, so first, a quick tip: when choosing an anti-semitic pseudonym to sign off your email expressing how proud you are to be an anti-semite, don’t use your real name in your email address.

Moving on. Ed Asner is apparently the quintessential “good Jew.” I’m so relieved! For a minute, I read “Ed Asner” but thought “Alan Arkin” for some reason. I don’t know why! But for that minute, I was super sad that Alan Arkin was so stupid. But then I Googled and realized that it was actually the old man from Up, so suddenly I didn’t mind so much. It’s like: sure, old man from Up. Sure them “Ay-rabs” couldn’t have figured out how to fly some damned planes into buildings.

One more important point, here: how many movies have been made about the Bolsheviks? Zero? Au contraire!

Battleship Potemkin (1925)

Animal Farm (1999 and 1954)

The Weakness of the Bolshevik (2003. Admittedly, not actually about the Bolsheviks)

Beauty and the Bolshevik (1923)

The Last Bolshevik (1993)

Annajanska, The Bolshevik Empress (1939)

Bulling the Bolshevik (1918)

Maybe Mr. Harvey didn’t realize these films existed because he’s boycotting the Jew-controlled Hollywood. Fair enough. Let’s convince him that the Jews also control the Internet! Shouldn’t be tough, as it appears as though there already are conspiracy theories about that out there (BUT FOR HOW LONG). Now all we need is for him to boycott that, which should be easy considering that he lives on the moon.

    This is great and entertaining in so many ways, but the first question that pops into my head is why this guy even knows that you discussed the matter last week. Surely he isn’t an avid listener, right? Maybe someone (the original letter writer) posted a link to the episode on some Truther board.

    In any event, you can tell that he is well informed and has done a lot of research because he knows that Ed Asner is Jewish. I, personally, had no idea. But I am certain that Harvey and his non-anti-Semitic (but not really Semitic) friends were all high fiving the day Asner signed onto the movement so that they could prove that they weren’t anti-Semitic (but not really Semitic) even though we probably need to be anti-Semitic (but not really Semitic) in order to save America. Sharp logic.

    I <3 the Truthers, they are my favorite conspiracy movement. I studied structural engineering for a couple years in school and my partner is a structural engineer, so it's super fun to read the anomaly hunting and bizarre theories, "WTC7 fell too fast!", "WTC7 fell too slow!", "I don't know how steel works!"

    I would bet that 9/11 truth movement has gotten a lot *more* anti-semetic as time has passed. I think after a decade, the moderates, people who expressed their frustration with Bush era politics through 9/11 Truth have left the movement, and now we're mostly seeing people who are splitting their time between Truth and the Denver Airport conspiracy.

    Back to hating the Jews so soon, Mr. Harvey? Now all of a sudden I miss the days when homosexuals controlled Hollywood and the media, and being African-American made it easy to get elected President.

    “the corrupt Jews, like the ones that run CNN and have Dr. Drew (Dr. Jew)”

    OH NOES! He invoked proof by rhyme (or rime as he’d spell it). It must be true, the Jews must control the government. It sure explains all those Jewish Presidents.

    I’m mostly concerned that he referred to Bill Maher’s show as “Politically Incorrect”, which means we’re not just dealing with anti-Semites, but time travelling anti-Semites. Oh, the horror.

    Rebecca Watson,

    Sorry I forgot to post this earlier, but I’m really glad you wrote this. People like Ed Asner need to be discredited, as do all bigots and paranoid conspiracy theorists like him. I wouldn’t be surprised if this guy also denies the Holocaust.

    WOW, Asner has really lost it. He is also in the movie Denialism, The Death of AIDS which is ironically an AIDS denialist movie.

    Peter Falk became a truther at the end of his life too, maybe there is a sort of dementia that causes this kind of thinking.

    Gosh, it would be a shame for Daniel G. Harvey if anyone ever googled Daniel Harvey and came away with the impression that he was actually anti-Semitic, just because Daniel G. Harvey SAID he was proud to be anti-Semitic. On the other hand, I’m sure that Daniel Harvey would never, ever want to work for or date or rent from anybody who might be offended by the idea that Daniel G. Harvey is anti-Semitic. That’s Daniel G. Harvey with a G. But you can call him Dan Harvey.

    It really is unfair how we keep pointing the finger at the Nazis and calling them anti-semitic. When all they did was invent the term because “Jew-hatred” wasn’t polling well in focus groups and then use it as an excuse for genocide! I mean come on, fellow Jews, couldn’t we learn to be a little more understanding?

    A guy I know worked on the soundtrack for a film called A Noble Lie which is about the OKC bombing. He is also a truther.
    In a semi drunken argument one night I showed some folks how a drinking straw supported on it’s ends over a candle will eventually start to sag but may not melt.
    The arguments are baffling.

    So, George W Bush who many people consider a dolt was able to pull off this huge caper involving 4 aircraft and 3 different locations? Anyone in the military will tell you things rarely work that smoothly.

    Anyway, sorry to rant but this one really frustrates me. The lack of understanding physical laws and racism.

    My biggest problem is that many of the people are intelligent.

    The lack of anti-semitism just pours forth from this guy? I mean, how could anyone think that someone who calls Dr. Drew “Dr. Jew” could have even an ounce of anti-semitism in him?
