Responding to Ad Hominem Anti-Semitism on the Internet
Antisemitism is raising its ugly head all over the internet, again. Yesterday, I received an email from someone called “Rebel of Oz” with a link to post entitled “How We Can Overthrow the Jew World Order.” The sender of that email, breaking the usual protocol for these kinds of messages, added the names of 178 recipients to the carbon copy list. (Did you even remember that CC stands for carbon copy?) At first, I simply ignored the original email. Then, today, I received another email from someone else, also addressed to the same list, admonishing the original sender not to send emails to people “in the open” by posting the addresses to the CC option rather than the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) option, and began to question whether ignoring this email was a viable option for me….or, as it turns out, for you either.
As it happens, I know some of the people on this list, and therefore I also know that some of the people on this list are completely opposed to this kind of Anti-Semitic nonsense, in some cases because they are Jewish and in other cases because they are simply not stupid. I also know who provided the names of the people I know on this distribution list. He should have known better, but I will not name any names here.
Because I know him, I also know that this person absolutely had to know that some of the people on that list are Jewish, and this is where simple Antisemitism becomes an ad hominem attack on the Jewish people whose names appear on this list.
Think this through with me. You are Jewish. You receive an email inviting you to read a blog post entitled “How We Can Overthrow the Jew World Order” from someone you don’t know, but there are other names on the list including, perhaps, some people you do know. How are you going to feel about those people on that list? Are you going to automatically assume that they are as uninterested in Rebel of Oz’s thesis as you are, or are you going to wonder if some of them might not, in fact, be swayed by the specious arguments in Rebel of Oz’s arguments or might in fact already agree with the premise. (Why else would they be on the list, forgetting of course that you were too?) That cannot make you feel good, wondering if people you respect and whom you thought respected you might not eventually become convinced that there must be some validity to these old Anti-Semitic assertions under the old maxim: “Where there’s smoke, there must be fire.”
Now, turn that premise upside down. Imagine that someone else – someone you know in one capacity or another – sees your name on this list. How are you going to feel about that, as you wonder how they feel about it?
In fact, the fact that your name is on this list could (and maybe should) make you feel very, very uncomfortable….and that is exactly what the people who write and publish these things want from you. It’s called progressive destabilization and it is a step toward a totalitarian dictatorship, as people who otherwise might find a common cause among one another are divided by a false distinction that separates people from each other based on beliefs in false premises.
We live today in an age of disinformation in which the frequent repetition of false assertions has the effect of causing even fair minded people to wonder whether or not there might be some truth in even the most outlandish assertions. This has become one of the most crucial issues in the Information Age: we can no longer trust the information we find online. There’s nothing new about this. Disinformation has always been around. Hitler used it. Napoleon used it. Julius Caesar probably used it. What is new, and different, is that the information you read yesterday can disappear today and be replaced with diametrically opposed “facts” tomorrow….and you would never know about it, unless you are in the habit of reading the same articles over and over again. George Orwell was right. We are living in the world he predicted in 1949 with his so-called dystopian novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four. (Can it still be considered dystopian if it comes true?)
That’s the slippery slope we are on, because when the facts change around you on a daily basis, no one knows what the truth is any more and all you are left with are divergent opinions. After all, it wasn’t so many years ago that “global warming” was considered an outlandish notion, and weren’t we supposed to run out of oil by 1992 according to the Club of Rome 1972 Limits to Growth report. Today, “climate change” is the widespread belief, and we have more proven oil reserves than we had in 1972.
Disinformation, as a political tool, involves the continual repetition of patently false assertions widely published in variety of sources over a significant period of time, the net effect of which is to make it more and more difficult to refute the presumptive “facts” since they are in such wide distribution that a reasonable person would have no reason to doubt their accuracy and without the requisite ammunition necessary to refute them.
Of course, you, for example, don’t believe those false assertions for a minute….because they are not aimed at you. They don’t care whether you believe them or not. What they care about is whether the”average working person” believes them or not, because those are the troops they are attempting to rally to their cause….not, you, or me, or even us. Nevertheless, the only reason that these strategies succeed is because we allow them to.
Antisemitism, however, is a special case. Climate change and oil supplies are (despite the beliefs of the lunatic fringe) based upon hard evidence. Antisemitism can only be based upon repeated assertions since there is no hard evidence one way or the other to prove or refute the statements. How can you prove that there is no world-wide Jewish conspiracy to control the earth? When did you stop beating your wife?
Whether you are Jewish or not (because even if you are not, you are probably related to someone who is but, if you are not, statistically, you are almost definitely related to someone who is related to someone who is Jewish) we owe it to ourselves and to each other to reject and oppose racism of any nature (and Anti Semitism is racism because it construes the identity of the Jewish people as a specific and divergent race)
We all know the old maxim, that all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good [men] to do nothing. Here’s your chance to put up or shut up.
The reason you are receiving this email from me is that (with certain exceptions noted below) your name is on the distribution list along with mine. Someone went to a great deal of effort to ferret out all of these email addresses, including mine and yours, to promote an ancient and idiotic evil.
Imagine if the internet had existed when a Czarist Russian espionage agent purportedly (no one knows for sure) first published “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” in 1903. Well, you don’t have to imagine it, because the Protocols still in circulation on the internet and, in every generation, there will always be a certain number of ignorant people who come across the Protocols and fall for them hook, line and sinker…because enough of us don’t raise our voices to declare the fraud a fraud.
How do we oppose this kind of racism? Simply by telling the sender of these obnoxious emails to stop. Is that enough? Just send the sender of the original email a reply stating your opposition to their Anti-Semitism.
I don’t think so. I think it is important to tell each other that we do not accept the ideas these demagogues are promulgating. Until now, I have always assume that no one I know agrees with them, but I can no longer draw that unilateral conclusion because that’s the ostrich’s answer to psychological aggression and I’m not a flightless bird.
I think we have to publicly assert our disapproval of these libels, and register our disbelief with each other, but there is no convenient venue for us to do that from, so I am now offering this one, right here.
You can register your comments here, for or against my thesis. No comments will be deleted, although some may be excoriated by other posters. Or, you can visit my Facebook page and make your comments there. Or, you can just do nothing. Remember how that worked out for us?

This was an experiment. I wanted to see what happened. So far, out of 187 original entries, 22 were undeliverable. I received four other responses, two of which affirmed that the Protocols were factual representations of a world wide Jewish conspiracy, one that suggested I should do something more positive with my life than to raise concerns about anti semitism, and one who said that he never received the original email. One person asked me whether I thought that Henry Ford was so easily fooled. I didn’t bother to point out to him that Ford went bankrupt twice because he trusted the wrong people.

I just got your email where you state you’re offended by someone at the “Rebel of Oz” gathering people’s emails to mass email them in order to support their agenda.
Well, sir, I have to agree. I don’t like it when people I don’t know or have previously communicated with (they kicked me out of the rebel) email me without my permission and this is especially true when they know I don’t want to communicate with them. You see sir, I know what those who are at “the rebel” are. They are what is called, false opposition today.
So at least, in this regard, we are in agreement. However, you too sir emailed me and I don’t know you from Adam. Don’t you find it at least a little bit hypocritical opposing mass emails in support of an agenda by mass emailing people in support of your own agenda?
While I am not a supporter of the “Rebel of Oz” I do take issue with your use of the terms “Anti Semite” “hater” and “racist”; not to mention your denunciation of the forged (not fraud) Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
All of those slander terms you cited were relatively recently invented and are now used by Zionist “Jews” and their proxies to further their Marxist agenda and to be completely frank, all of them, without exception, are quite meaningless. Allow me to show you why.
“Anti Semite” infers that one is opposed to Semites (those who hail from Shem) and the so called “Jews” are not Semites. The “Jews” are mostly from Ashkenaz (Genesis 10:3) who hail from Japeth, where the others who mixed with them and converted them around 800 AD are from Esau (Not Abraham, Isaac and Jacob- 12 tribes of Israel/Judah). Those of Esau are now commonly known as Sephardics. The Sephardics are a mixed people today having only the female line of genetics that passed through Isaac and before him, Abraham. Their name comes from Mount Sephard in old Edom-Idumea (not Spain or other such nonsense) before they were absorbed into Judah by King Hycranus 125 BC. These are those whom are impostors (Revelation 3); the one’s Jesus Christ my kinfolk exposed, opposed, was murdered by and said were of their father, the Devil.
These so called “Jews” and “Israelis” are engaged in mass identity fraud (just like 2000 years ago) and I might remind you kind sir that fraud has no statute of limitations.
But hey, don’t believe me. Take their own authoritative admissions on the matter.
The 1925 Encyclopedia Judaica states “Edom (Esau) is modern Jewry”
The Encyclopedia Judaica 1971, Volume 10:23 proclaims “The Jews began to call themselves Hebrews and Israelis in 1860”
The 1980 Jewish Almanac p.3 states “strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a Jew or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew
…in the days of John Hyrcanus (end of the second century B.C.E.) … the [non-Israelite] Edomites became a section of the Jewish people. “EDOM,” Encyclopaedia Judaica (Jerusalem, Israel: Encyclopaedia Judaica Company, 1971) Vol. 6, p. 378
They [the non-Israelite Edomites] were then incorporated with the Jewish nation…. “EDOM, IDUMEA,” The Jewish Encyclopedia (New York & London: Funk and Wagnalls Company, 1904) Vol. V, p. 41
…from then on they [the non-Israelite Edomites] constituted a part of the Jewish people, Herod [King of Judea] being one of their descendants. “EDOM (Idumea),” The New Standard Jewish Encyclopedia (Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1977) p. 589
…they [the Edomites] were hereafter no other than [non-Israelite] Jews. Flavius Josephus, The Antiquities of the Jews (Grand Rapids, MI: Dregel Publications, 1960) Book XIII, Chapter IX, Verse 1, p. 279
The term “racist” is equally as meaningless as your use of the term “anti Semite”. “Racist” was first coined by the mass murdering Bolshevik “Jew” Trotsky to demonize the ethnic and religious solidarity (for which “Jews” are famous for) of whites/Europeans-Christians which culminated in the mass murder of over 66 million in Russia according to Nobel Prize winner Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn who just happened to survive the “Jewish” Soviet Gulags. Gee, why don’t we ever hear about this real Holocaust while we are continuously inundated with “Holocaust” stories about NS Germany? Could it have something to do with the ethnic identity of those who control around 96% of all Media outlets?
Here is a link to Alexanders book 200 years together for reference. Funny how this world famous book is banned in the West, huh?
“Hater”. Humm, now there is an Orwellian word if there ever was one. Hate is an emotion sir and it’s validity completely depends on whether that to which one hates is evil or good. To call those who oppose the Marxist mass murdering “Jews” and their proxies “haters” is akin to calling one a “hater” for hating Charles Manson (as a person or his acts).
Finally, allow me to address the Protocols which you wrongly described as a fraud. They are not fraudulent and all one needs to do is have a good grasp of world history over the last 100 or so years to see that all that was promoted in those Protocols has not only happened, verbatim, but is still being carried out as we speak.
If you or other readers doubt this, why don’t you read it before condemning those who cite it and decided for yourself?
It is true that that the Protocols were forged but one must remember two things.
1. The Christian Czar’s Policeman who obtained a copy of it could only get that copy to warn the world without the expressed permission from the “Jews” who wrote it. I think he will be forgiven.
2. Just because one looks as a copy or a forged Rembrandt, doesn’t mean that what he observes isn’t a replica of an original.
So with that said I encourage you to study these issues yourself and after verification, abandon your position. Just because one opposes mass murders, identity thieves and pathological liars doesn’t mean they hate all of the “Jews” that have ever walked the earth. For to entertain and label people with such nonsense isn’t only the height of ignorance, it’s quite frankly, very, very hateful.

I approved the publication of Mr. Parson’s essay despite the fact that I disagree with it because it requires refutation, and I can’t refute it if I don’t publish it. I do not for a second believe that I will convince Mr. Parsons to change his thinking, but that doesn’t absolve me from making the effort. Mr. Parsons goes to great length to challenge the idea that Jews are Semites, claiming that Semites are the descendants of Shem, one of the mythical sons of the mythical Noah. The term “semitic” has nothing to do with Shem but refers instead to a group of Afroasiatic languages and, hence, anyone who speaks one of those languages as their mother tongue is by definition considered Semitic. (You might make the case that the linguistic term Semite was derived from Shem but that’s a horse of another color, isn’t it?) The term anti Semitic ITSELF is problematic because, in common usage, the term is applied to discrimination against Jews, but the term includes Muslims and other Arabic language speakers who are not generally grouped as victims of anti-semitic discrimination. The term anti-Jewish would be much better but we are stuck with what has been approved by common usage.
Mr. Parsons’ point is, I think, that many of the the people who call themselves Jews today are not genetically linked to the historical Jews of the biblical period, and that is both quite true and irrelevant. What is relevant is the idea that there is a cabal of Jewish power brokers who control the world. This particular myth was first broached during the French Revolution, when the Jews were associated with the Masons who, in turn, were associated with the Revolutionary Movement. Ironically, the Masons of that period were not receptive to Jewish members, so the myth was a hoax from the outset. Nevertheless, the myth about this cabal of Jewish Elders traveled from France to Germany, from Germany to Russia and from Russia back to the rest of the world over a 116 year period, from 1789 to 1905. The presumption that there is a self-perpetuating group of 300 Jews who control everything – the basic premise of the Protocols – raises one very basic question: If such a group exists, how do you explain the Holocaust? One has to conclude that if the Elders of Zion exists, they should all be fired because they have done a piss-poor job of dominating the world, unless you believe they are also in control of the Chinese Hegemony, which will soon be the economic master of the planet.
And, as far as not having read the Protocols, well, in fact I have, several times. Certain aspects of the Protocols prove them to be a forgery, beginning with internal inconsistency, but what is especially striking is the similarity between the course of action promoted by the Protocols and the actual behavior of the Nazi party during their rise to power in Germany. Control over education, over the media, over the markets, one after another, the strategies through which Hitler won power in Germany are described in the Protocols as if they were a blueprint for Adolph Hitler’s revolution, as they well might have been because Hitler was known to have read the Protocols very carefully, the evidence for which is clear from his own published works. Maybe Hitler was one of the Elders of Zion?
This raises a very interesting question. If these strategies are so powerful, and if we have already seen them successfully employed by Adolph Hitler, then why haven’t the Elders of Zion implemented their own plan – which has been in print for more than 225 years in one form or another – to achieve world domination, unless you believe that they have already succeeded and we just don’t know it. Since there is no convincing evidence that the Jews control everything, we just have to assume that, if they had ever existed, the Elders of Zion failed in their efforts to take over the world, and now we are back to square one looking for someone else to blame.

I wonder if you will allow my speech and post my response you invited me to? We’ll see……..
07/14/2015 @ 3:50 pm
I did not receive the original email.
Yes, people believe this stuff. Last summer, the Blood Libel was stated as fact on Lebanese television by the highest ranking Hamas official in Lebanon. That lie is close to a thousand years old and even shows up in the Canterbury Tales.
Several months ago, s student at UCLA was nearly denied membership on the student council for being Jewish.
07/15/2015 @ 10:13 am
Seriously? At UCLA? That is astounding. I will have to check into that. How are you by the way?
07/15/2015 @ 2:09 pm
By the way, Mr. Parsons is completely wrong about there being no statute of limitations on fraud, as he stated. In the United States, the limitation varies by state from two years to ten years. In certain states, the statute of limitations on fraud is two years after the discovery of the fraud. The statutes for libel and slander are the same as for contracts or, in other words, the same as for fraud. This is an example of how misinformation spreads. Someone may read and accept Mr. Parsons assertions that there is no statute of limitations for fraud, but will never get around to reading my correction.
07/15/2015 @ 4:48 pm
I am citing Common/Natural/Christian law which is the law of my people and the Supreme law of the land (uS/UK/Colonies and other places). As you can see, legal codes and actually, in this case, in agreement with me and our law and not you.
Here are examples of the legal codes where there are no statue of limitations
1. If you kill someone: A charge of murder can be made at any time.
(The Israeli’s and elite “Jews” have carried out murders the world over of not only my people, including, most recently in Palestine, not to mention being totally complicate in the 911 false flag.)
2. Fraud and embezzlement
(Fraud includes identity fraud to which the “Jews” and “Israelis” the world over are engaged in as I’ve proved above. Embezzlement is carried out every single day against Americans in service of “Israel” and the City of London “Jews” mostly through lobbying and through the so called “Federal Reserve” bank which is a private banking institution that has the Corporation US/DC in debt and to which they use us, native born American living souls, as collateral against this fraudulent debt. Isn’t it interesting that the same year the “Jews” started to falsely called themselves Judah and Israel and Hebrews- 1860- is the exact same year white/European/males American’s de jure Governments were put to sleep for lack of quorum?).
3 .War Crimes
(I would say mass murdering over 66 million in Russia, millions in Germany and God knows how many the number will be in the uS/UK/Colonies, not to mention the Arabs would qualify as “crimes against humanity”, wouldn’t you?)
(Kidnapping is forcing someone to do something against their will. I’d say forcing people to going to Gulags and Detention centers and being thrown in jail per the expressed desire of elite “Jews” in violation of our own supreme law of the land qualifies, wouldn’t you?)
Our law calls it treason under the authentic 13th Amendment to be a dual citizen and serve in office or have overriding allegiances to a foreign power which would definitely be the case for any and all who support “Israel” and the “Jewish” collective over that of the National interests of the united States of America (1789) and her founding stock, law of the land. Treason is also cited in the legal codes.
Furthermore, the entire American law system and lawful Government(s) (not legal codes and not to mention that same law in our other lands) are based citing the overriding authority of I AM/Jesus and his law (both the Greek NT and OT) that is part of our new contract (that is written in our hearts and minds) as proved in America per our Declaration of Independence. This is our enacting clause and here are those citations, exactly 2520 yrs, as prophesied, from the times that the 12 tribes (except for a small remnant of the tribes of Judah and one house of David) where captured by the Assyrians and placed in modern Iran/Iraq (called then Medes) as they later passed through the Caucasian Mountains flooding into Europe proper between 650 BC and 200 AD thus spreading to form the NATIONS of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob per the blessings and dominion mandates given us from Adam on down?
“Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God”, “Creator” “Supreme Judge of the world” “divine Providence” and all signed in the “Year of Our Lord (I AM/Jesus), 1776.
07/15/2015 @ 5:19 pm
Okay, the laws you cite have no force or effect in the United States. Asserting a fact is not the same thing as providing evidence of a fact. The laws you cite are not part of the jurisprudence of the United States. Under US law there is no statute of limitations on murder, kidnapping, sex crimes against minors or war crimes. Federal law imposes a five year statute of limitations on all crimes except those where a death sentence may be imposed. We are obviously not consulting the same sources.
07/15/2015 @ 5:24 pm
I have decided that enough is enough and I am not going to publish any further comments from Mr. Parsons. Arguing with people who don’t live in the same world is rather like Mr. Einstein’s definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again but expecting to get a different result.

Is Bindlesnitch this old or did you manage to transfer a thread to this site?
07/01/2019 @ 8:35 am
This is covered in a number of places. The short story is that BindleSnitch is a reincarnation of a previous iteration called Tellusnewsdigest.com The primary difference was that Tellus was designed to be much more of a hard news site, with strict rules about presentation. It was also designed to teach computer, internet, writing and journalistic skills to a population of existing prison inmates, recovering substance abusers, displaced workers, seniors, and home makers returning to the workplace.
We pulled the plug on that site (which is currently turned off but still exists) when we realized that, even with our extensive experience, we weren’t making a living in online journalism. If we couldn’t do it, we felt it was irresponsible to hold out that possibility to a highly vulnerable population that is often quite desperate to find a way out of an untenable life situation.
While there are superficial similarities between the Tellus site and Bindle, BindleSnitch is really a ground up project, but we brought along the old content from Tellus (of which more than 95% belonged to either Robert Pannier or myself) because it is much easier to develop a site with content than it is the develop a site that has none.
I believe there are some stories on Bindle that were originally published on Guardian Liberty Voice, as well as Open Salon, Facebook and various other places
07/01/2019 @ 8:41 am
By the way, somehow or other you actually commented on this story three years ago. How did that ever happen?
07/01/2019 @ 2:35 pm
Hell if I know
07/01/2019 @ 8:34 am
I just wrote and then deleted a comment that was actually a reply to Kosher’s question about how old BindleSnitch really is. See below for my answer.
