Bollyn Responds to Charges of Anti-Semitism

October 7, 2016

I have never been so upset by a poll in my life. Only 22 percent of Americans now believe "the movie and television industries are pretty much run by Jews," down from nearly 50 percent in 1964. The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results last month, sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten. Jews totally run Hollywood… But I don't care if Americans think we're running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we get to keep running them.

BOLLYN RESPONDS TO CRITICISM OF ANTI-SEMITISM


J'accuse! - Sander Hicks accuses me of being anti-Semitic.

J'accuse! - Sander Hicks, a New York-based critic of my research, attacked me in an email to a group of NY 9-11 activists:

If anyone said that the Albanians control the media and contributed to the moral decline of a society, or if anyone said that the Catholics did that, then that person would be taken to account for making a broad generalization about an entire religion or an entire ethnicity.

Broad racial generalizations are inherently unfair. Because they are inherently unscientific.

And this generalization is exactly what Christopher Bollyn said about the Jews. He said that they control the media and that their nature is to contribute to a moral decline of a society. It's a huge blockage and it will prevent people from reading whatever else of value he has to contribute. You'll have to take my word for it. Just look at how his events were shut down in New York. And look at how that smears 9/11 truth. I'm not talking about stuff in theory I'm talking about what has happened. It's defamatory to our movement --it has caused damages.

Other people on this email list have contacted me personally. They say that it's insane that people cannot read that quotation and not think that he is being anything but anti-Semitic.

It's not up to me to disprove his racist generalization. It seems false on its face. If he wants to make an assertion it's up to him to prove it. I'm organizing people in New York to get justice for 911. What are you guys doing? You're defending something that's indefensible. It's pathetic and it's weak and it's amoral.

What I find sharply hypocritical is that Bollyn does all this in the name of "Christian values."

BOLLYN RESPONDS

I have been asked to comment on a paragraph I wrote for the first edition of “The Architecture of Terror: Mapping the Network Behind 9-11.” This material ultimately became Chapter VII of my book, Solving 9-11: The Deception that Changed the World.
(See: 
http://www.bollyn.com/the-architecture-of-terror-mapping-t…/)

This particular chapter was sent to an independent fact-checker in England who, unbeknownst to me, examined 105 statements and found them to be 100 percent correct.
(See: 
http://www.bollyn.com/bollyn-research-proved-to-be-without…/)

Sander Hicks, a New York-based critic of my work who calls me an anti-Semite, sent me the paragraph he thought was proof of my so-called "anti-Semitism". In email to others he said, “I supplied the quote from Bollyn's book that displays racism, hate and Anti-Semitism.”

NOT EVEN IN THE BOOK


The paragraph that Hicks' uses to accuse me is not even in my book, Solving 9-11.

First, I should point out that Hicks is quite wrong to say this quote is from my book. The paragraph he provided is not even in the book. The paragraph in question was written in 2008 as part of the on-line research, which was the first-draft material for the book:

As an American raised with traditional Christian values, I realized that the culture I had grown up in was under attack and being reduced to a sub-culture. Through the Jewish-controlled media, a distinctly foreign and anti-Christian culture of pornography, perversion, and violence was being pushed. The producers of this "new culture" were primarily Jews of Eastern European origin. Through their control of the mass media, film, radio, and television networks, a diet of perverse entertainment and un-American values was being force-fed to the unsuspecting American people...

The paragraph that was published in the book, Solving 9-11: The Deception that Changed the World (2012), reads like this:

As an American raised with traditional Christian values, I came to realize that the culture I had grown up in was under attack and was being reduced to a subculture. Through the media, a distinctly foreign and anti-Christian culture of pornography, perversion, and violence was being promoted. A diet of perverse entertainment and un-American values was being pushed onto the unsuspecting American population through the mass media.

The fact of the matter is that the quote that Sander Hicks says “displays racism, hate and Anti-Semitism” is not even in the book. Looking at the paragraph that was actually published in the book it is clear that Hicks is quite wrong about it being any of the things he says it is.

This is what I wrote to Sander Hicks:

Sander, all the points I make in that paragraph are easily proven. They are, in fact, so well-known that they are agreed upon by anyone who has looked into the subject. You may not believe it, but I would ask you to simply examine each point and you will see that I have not lied or exaggerated about anything.

As the author of the draft version that I wrote in 2008, I am of course ready to defend what I wrote. To do so, it is necessary to provide the paragraph in its proper context:

After spending several years in Europe, Israel, and the Middle East, I returned to the United States in the late 1970s and found the discourse in the media about Zionism to be extremely one-sided and distorted. Zionism, a racist ideology if ever there was one, was grossly misrepresented in the U.S. mass media as being a progressive and democratic movement of national liberation, while the state of Israel was depicted as being a kosher slice of America in the Middle East. It was very clear that the people providing the distorted view of the Middle East were themselves Jews devoted to a very un-American political and racial agenda called Zionism, the violent and chauvinistic nationalism of Eastern European Jews who have occupied Palestine since 1948.

Honest and unbiased coverage of Israel and the Middle East became increasingly difficult to find in the U.S. during the 1980s and 1990s. The sale of Ted Turner's progressive Cable News Network (CNN) to Gerald Levine of AOL Time Warner and the transformation of the informative Christian Science Monitor marked the end of the last independent and unbiased news outlets covering the Middle East. An ethnic minority group with a foreign agenda – Zionism – had gained monopoly control over the U.S. mass media. The Jewish monopoly of the U.S. media coincided with the United States being drawn more deeply into the Arab-Israeli conflict as the primary supporter, financier, and political ally of the Zionists. This combination has been extremely detrimental for America and disastrous for the people of the region, as the criminal Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982 clearly showed.

Aware of the increasing prevalence and dominance of Zionist Jews in the political, financial, and academic sectors, I came to the conclusion that I was living in Jewish times. As an American raised with traditional Christian values, I realized that the culture I had grown up in was under attack and being reduced to a sub-culture. Through the Jewish-controlled media, a distinctly foreign and anti-Christian culture of pornography, perversion, and violence was being pushed. The producers of this "new culture" were primarily Jews of Eastern European origin. Through their control of the mass media, film, radio, and television networks, a diet of perverse entertainment and un-American values was being force-fed to the unsuspecting American population.

The part that Hicks says “displays racism, hate and Anti-Semitism” is the last four sentences of the final paragraph, so let’s look at what they say:

As an American raised with traditional Christian values, I realized that the culture I had grown up in was under attack and being reduced to a sub-culture.

Bollyn:  I grew up in the Episcopalian church where I served many years as an acolyte. I was also an Eagle Scout and earned the God and Country Award. I observed that the Christian values that were essential guidelines of the culture I grew up in were very much under attack when I came back to the United States in the late 1970s after about three years spent in Europe and the Middle East.

Through the Jewish-controlled media, a distinctly foreign and anti-Christian culture of pornography, perversion, and violence was being pushed.

Bollyn:  The fact that an “anti-Christian culture of pornography, perversion, and violence was being pushed” is obvious to anyone who is familiar with American culture of the 1980s and 90s. The offensive phrase therefore must be that this was being pushed by the “Jewish-controlled media.”

It is an easily proven fact that the U.S. mainstream media is “Jewish-controlled.” Some of the sources which have documented this fact are:

The producers of this "new culture" were primarily Jews of Eastern European origin.

Bollyn:  Again, an examination of who controls the media in the United States will show that this is the fact. CBS News is a good example to illustrate this fact: Leslie Moonves, the great-nephew of David Ben-Gurion, the first Prime Minister of Israel, is the President and Chief Executive Officer of CBS Corp.

Through their control of the mass media, film, radio, and television networks, a diet of perverse entertainment and un-American values was being force-fed to the unsuspecting American population.

Bollyn:  The mass media has consistently pushed “a diet of perverse entertainment and un-American values.” One could write volumes on this subject, but as an example of how this works I sent the following to Sander Hicks:
