Stop Writing Me About the Jews

time to time I write about the cloacal morality of the media as they
go about wrecking civilization and annoying hell out of me. For
rhetorical convenience I use "New York" and "Hollywood" as a sort of
abbreviation for the news racket and the screen trades.
column gets a lot of email. Some of it assumes that "New York" and
"Hollywood" are code words for "Jews," and excoriates me mightily
for not saying what I am assumed to mean. Let me give you a typical
example, the subject line being "Fred Sees No Jews in New York and
column on Television Tyranny and Degeneration is strong and
important, as your columns usually are. But it also shows you're
unwilling to mention that Jews dominate these industries Ė again, as
your columns always are scared to mention Jews.
You're not ignorant that Hollywood and New York, movies and
television, are Jewish. You're unwilling to say so. You're unwilling
to state publicly the hatred consistently pumped by Jews into the
Gentile populations they dominate, degrade, and destroy.
fact that even Fred Reed submits to the taboo not to criticize Jews
Ė no matter how obvious and ubiquitous is the power of Jewish
degradation of Gentiles Ė is proof of the ruling power of
"Hide the truth Ė protect Jewish power and degradation of
Gentiles." That's the policy Fred Reed follows, together with

spineless I think your last column was in omitting the very obvious
fact that JEWS have played and continue to play the largest role in

host civilizations Ė it is part of their survival instinct and it is
what has caused their genetic strain and culture to survive for
prevalence of Jews in television and advertising provides a powerful
channel for those destructive urges to have their effect. One
wonders whether this unprecedented opportunity for their hatred and
contempt to be actualized will deliver the final blow to the tired

are you so scared of Jews? Are you just a realist? Do you know more
than I do about what they could and will do to you? Or are you just
admire the fearlessness of John and Vince in having me take on the
Jews. "Letís you and him fight" is an old call. Being weary of this
stuff, I am going to do a doubtless overlong column on the subject,
and then go back to better things, such as drinking beer with
the conventions of discourse being what they are, it is hard to talk
about Jews at all. If you say, "Some of my best friends are Jews,"
it means you hate Jews. If you say, "I canít stand the freaking
Jews," it means you hate Jews. If you donít say anything, it means
you secretly hate Jews.
you say anything good about the Jews, it means that you are a tool
of the Jews, or afraid of the Jews, or have had your mind clouded by
Jews. Where does one go from here?
premises of letters such as the foregoing are invariant: (1) that
Jews want to destroy all that is good and holy, and eat Christian
children, and (2) that I know it. It then follows that, since I
donít say it, I must be either cowardly or collusive. The matter is
always phrased as a manhood issue: Either you stand up to the Jews,
or you lack balls. The Jews of course are a monolithic and
conspiratorial group who rub their hands and say "Heh-heh-heh."
Permit me a different interpretation.
may be exotic in Peoria. (Or may not be: I have never been to
Peoria.) In Washington, where I worked for years, they are as rare
as automobiles. I have known lots of Jews. I have dated them, gotten
drunk with them, danced with them, argued with them, gone on junkets
to weird Asian countries with them. I liked most of them.
favorite lunch buddy for a long time was a retired Harvard
professor, Jewish, as decent a human being as I have ever met. My
favorite dance partner was a Jewish radical feminist (I know, I
know, but we liked each other) who was on an undefeated College Bowl
team in the Sixties. My dentist was Jewish. The biochemist I used to
windsurf with on the Potomac was Jewish. Beth, the pediatrician I
dated at NIH, was Jewish, and an absolute sweetheart. I learned the
Texas two-step from a Jewish carpenter (no, another carpenter) who
moonlighted as a dance instructor. And so on.
Familiarity Ė not fear of invisible radioactive death-needles
from Mossad, or of being run out of journalism Ė is why I donít
devote my life to obsessing about the maleficence of Jews. Are there
Jews who do things politically I donít like? Yes. Are there Jews who
do things politically Iím not sure whether I like? Yes. Is there an
Israeli lobby? Yes. Yet I have never encountered the evil Jews of
The Conspiracy. I simply do not see them as bad people. I am not
going to pretend otherwise to establish my virility for John and
particular, I do not rave against the Israelis, because I donít know
what I think they should do. I note that their treatment of the
Palestinians is indistinguishable from American treatment of the
Iraqis and Vietnamese. Virtue does not exactly flood the world's
Further, Jews as I have known them are not monolithic.
Politically they have been all over the place, though running to
liberal: a professional conservative (Herb Berkowitz, the PR guy at
the Heritage Foundation, a raucous Boston Jew and delightful loon),
a couple of AIPACers, (Seth Carus and Steve Glick, pro-Israel but,
Iím sorry gang, not anti-American), libertarians, Greens, several
with little or no interest in politics, some who in varying degrees
disapproved of Israel.
spent my high-school years aboard Dahlgren Naval Weapons Lab, living
on Mathematicians Row (Caffee Road, just off the Circle). The names
along the street were Cohen, Reed, Strauss, Kemper. I donít know how
they voted, but they designed armament for the Navy. Iíd guess
donít see the Jews of the email. That Jews are tremendously
influential in the media is a fact, easily verified on the Web.
However, the leap from "Jews are powerful in the media" to "Jews are
responsible for all social ills, the collapse of civilization, and
everything I donít like" is a bit of a stretch. Those I know have no
idea why John and Vince loathe them, incidentally. Being hit on the
head by a piano imparts little understanding of pianos.
Further, never do I encounter from the Johns and Vinces the
idea that any Jew, ever, might have done anything good, however
inadvertently. My experience is distinctly otherwise. For years I
was a science writer in Washington. I spent countless days crawling
through NIH, COMSAT, NASA, talking with Bell Labs and IBM Research,
and places you have probably never heard of. (The PET lab of NIDA,
National Institute on Drug Abuse in Baltimore, for example, then run
by a very bright Jewish woman.) The number of Jews in research, and
in high-tech industry, is wildly out of proportion to their number
in the population. They are a mainstay of the American lead in
technology. This is bad?
me tell you a story. In the early Fifties, polio was a nightmare for
parents. Lots of children clunked around in braces or sat forever in
wheel chairs. In summer, the epidemic season, our mothers wouldnít
let us go to public swimming pools because they were thought to be
focuses of infection.
day a fellow named Salk came out of a laboratory somewhere and said,
"Hey, Iíve got this vaccineÖ." A bit later, a guy named Sabin came
out of another laboratory, and said, "Hey, if we do thus and so and
put it on sugar cubes, see, it will be oralÖ." You canít imagine how
welcome that vaccine was. Parents grabbed their children by the hair
and sprinted through doors, sometimes not bothering to open them, to
get to the clinic. Polio just flat disappeared.
Hint: Salk and Sabin were not Rastafarians. ("Jews Destroy
American Iron Lung Industry.")
none of this count for anything?
many of the Jewish crimes popular on the email circuit donít stand
up to examination. For instance, I hear repeatedly that during
Vietnam America won in the field but that Jews stabbed Our Boys in
the back by means of the anti-war movement, thus seeking to promote
godless atheistic communism.
quite. The leadership of the anti-war movement was heavily Jewish.
The movement itself was overwhelmingly Christian. At the
conservative Southern college I attended, the studentry to a boy
wanted no part of the war. It wasnít because of Jewish anything. It
was because they didnít want to get shot. Their girlfriends didnít
want them to get shot, nor did their parents.
People didnít need help to weary of an endless, bloody,
pointless war, in which their sons were dying, in a place they
didnít care about and could barely find on a map. Christian kids in
huge numbers did everything they could to avoid Vietnam, which is
why the draft was needed to force them to go. Christians like Dan
Quayle, George W, and Bill Clinton sought student deferments or
ducked into the National Guard. Check how many of the Christian
elite from the Ivies served in Asia. The anti-war movement wasnít a
Jewish plot. It was a national revolt.
of the things Jews are supposed to be doing, on examination, they
arenít. Is globalization a Jewish plot (as Iím told), or the
inevitable result of advancing technology? Is destructive feminism a
Jewish plot, or the result of sweeping social changes in which women
have found themselves thrown into unaccustomed and unsettling roles?
Is the decline of education a Jewish plot, or the consequence of
having teaching in the hands of intellectual dregs, of pandering by
politicians for racial votes, and of the fact that Americans donít
really care about schooling? Etc.
Thatís why I donít gnaw at myself about Jews.
