- You're a loving, nonviolent person. How could you ever
be charged with a hate crime? It will be easier than you imagine if the
federal "anti-hate" bill now before the US Senate becomes law.

11 Reasons You Should Fight Hate Laws )
- Consider this example. I recently debated on Seattle's
Christian superstation KGNW with Christian/conservative talk show host
Thor Tolo and syndicated talk show host and Messianic Jew Jan Markell.
About halfway through the program, Thor boldly declared that Jews own and
control the media in the United States.
- 'Massive [Jewish] control of media, frankly, is indisputable,'
he said. 'The percentage of Jews who are in Hollywood running major motion
picture studios and controlling the major networks is simply beyond dispute.'
(Listen to the broadcast at <http://www.truthtellers.org/>www.truthtellers.org.)
- The 'old canard' of Jewish control of media tops the
list of what the Anti-Defamation League considers 'virulent anti-Semitism."
This charge shares 'hate speech' notoriety with the historic 'blood libel'
that medieval Jews mixed Gentile blood in their Passover matzo bread, or
that the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion lay out an authentic Jewish
plan for world mastery.
- Thor Tolo, nationally known and respected evangelical
talk show host, made a classic 'anti-Semitic' assertion before a rush hour
audience of perhaps hundreds of thousands! Was he speaking the truth' Absolutely.
Is he anti-Semitic' No!
- But the world's premier anti-Semitism watchdog organization,
ADL, would probably describe his words as "blatantly and repugnantly
anti-Semitic." In Never Again' The Threat of the New Anti-Semitism,
ADL's national director Abe Foxman says, 'It's so disappointing to find
the old canard about Jewish control of the entertainment industry surfacing
yet again'' Yes, Foxman says, there are Jews, even a disproportionate number
of Jews, in Hollywood. But there are also many Irish and Germans in Hollywood,
and no one is entitled to say that Irish and Germans control the entertainment
industry. Like Jews, he says, they just work there. (Foxman ignores the
question of who owns the movie studios that Jews, Irish, and Germans work
for.) Foxman teaches that it is anti-Semitic, hateful, and hurtful to suggest
that Jews dominate the opinion-making sector of our society. He warns that
just hearing the accusation that Jews dominate the media may be the first
taste of real anti-Semitism for many young people, leading them deeper
into hatred of Jews (p. 249).
- Tolo: Facing the Consequences
- What might happen to Tolo' Under America's First Amendment
protection he has the right to tell the whole truth even if the Jewish
media he has offended considers it anti-Semitic. Certainly, if Tolo were
an international figure like Dr. James Dobson and he claimed Jews dominated
the media, attacks on him as a 'Christian anti-Semite' would be immediate.
This, in fact, is what happened to world-renowned evangelist Rev. Billy
Graham. In private conversation with Pres. Richard Nixon, Graham also said
that Jews controlled the media and expressed grave concern saying "this
stranglehold has got to be broken or the country's going down the drain."
Nixon agreed. Later, when exposed, Graham at first denied he ever made
such remarks but then groveled before the rabbis of Cincinnati, confessing
that his words were 'unforgivable.'
- Tolo Would Be a 'Hate Criminal' in Canada
- If Tolo had been broadcasting only a few miles north
in British Columbia, he would be completely without legal protection. Jewish
'professional complainers' such as Richard Warman and Bernie Farber, emanating
from B'nai B'rith Canada and the Canadian Jewish Congress (Canadian ADL),
scour Canadian internet, print, and broadcast media for such 'hate speech.'
They would immediately report Tolo to the police, claming they were traumatized
by his characterization of Jews as media moguls'an accusation they would
assert has a long history of inciting hatred of Jews and violence against
- In the British Columbia hate crimes tribunal court, Tolo
could cite impeccable Jewish sources such as the Encyclopedia Judaica article
on motion pictures (pg. 449) which says 'all the large Hollywood companies
with the exception of United Artists' were founded and controlled by Jews."
He could cite the Judaica's articles on David Sarnoff, William S. Paley,
and Leonard Goldenson and prove that the big three TV networks, the most
powerful creators of public opinion and moral decline in America during
the last 50 years, were founded and controlled by Jews. He might also bring
to court a number of authoritative Jewish histories of the movie industry
including Neil Gabler's An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews Invented Hollywood.
Confirm Big Media Is Jewish )
- But it would do no good. All such evidence is considered
irrelevant in a hate crimes trial in Canada. The only issue is whether
Jewish feelings are hurt. Tolo would be found guilty of Section 319 of
Canada's federal hate law, The Canadian Human Rights Act (passed at ADL's
insistence in 1971 after 20 years of lobbying efforts).
- After Tolo alleged a Jewish monopoly of the media, he
retreated into uncertainty about whether Jewish media moguls would actually
stoop to use their power to influence America in a negative way. Would
Tolo be acquitted because he didn't say Jewish media control had been evil
or damaging' Not a chance. Under the British Columbia provincial hate law,
it is a hate crime to merely make public statements that might be 'likely
to incite hatred or contempt.' Certainly, prosecution would argue, Tolo
influences many hundreds of thousands and should have known how 'likely'
it was that rebellious youth and racists might take his negative characterization
of Jews and make use of it in acts of bigotry or violence.
- Tolo would be found guilty and probably receive a $5,000
fine. If he contested the verdict, he could expect to pay $175,000 to
over $200,000 in legal fees to defend his freedom, yet still remain guilty
in the end. If he repeated his 'hate speech' in public, he could face years
in prison for contempt of court. If KGNW existed in Canada, it would lose
its broadcasting license. (See, <http://www.truthtellers.org/alerts/hatebillmeansfuneral.html>New
Federal "Hate" Bill Means Funeral Of Free Speech )
- Hate Laws Can Happen Here
- You may sigh in relief and say, 'Thank God such an oppressive
hate laws system doesn't exist in America!' Yet we are very close to that
political slavery. The same ADL that ended free speech in Canada recently
persuaded the US House of Representatives to overwhelmingly pass essentially
the same hate crime bill! Top priority for ADL is to pass S.1105, The Matthew
Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act, in the Senate. It could move out of
the Senate Judiciary Committee to a full vote very rapidly. (See, <http://www.truthtellers.org/alerts/whathappenedhatebill.html>What's
Happened To The Hate Bill' )
- How do we keep ourselves, our pastors, and talk show
hosts like Thor Tolo free from the stifling hate laws that now cripple
free speech in Canada' Call your senators toll free today at 1-877-851-6437
and tell them; 'Please don't vote for hate crimes bill S.1105. Hate laws
have taken away free speech in Canada and many European countries. If you
vote for the hate bill, my friends and I will do our best to defeat you
in the next election."
- Come to <http://www.truthtellers.org/>www.truthtellers.org
for the list of Senate Republicans and Democrats who may be persuaded to
vote against the hate bill. We only need to change the minds of six or
seven Senators, and the federal hate bill will be killed in this session
- If we can kill the hate bill, you and I and talk show
hosts like Thor Tolo can continue the messy, politically incorrect process
of hard critical thought'without fear of being cuffed and interrogated
by the 'bias crimes'a unit of the local police department.
- Tolo is one of the very few evangelical talk hosts in
the nation with the nerve to allow an alternative view on Israel to be
aired. If we can continue to hold back hate laws, maybe other talk show
hosts will follow. Perhaps what Nixon and Billy Graham wished, in hushed
tones, can become a reality: the Jewish stranglehold on media can be broken.
- That would go a long way toward saving America.
