The unreconstructed anti-Judaism of Mark Glenn

Mark Glenn

And then we come to Mark Glenn, another commentator for Press TV. It’s hard to know where to start with this guy. It’s not very common to see such blatant and unapologetic anti-Judaism as his these days. Probably the most extensive single essay he has written on the subject is called “Judaism is Nobody’s Friend.” In it, Glenn rails against the fact that so many anti-Semites try to cloak their hatred of Jews in criticism of “Zionism.”  Glenn will have none of it:

It is JUDAISM that is the real problem. J-U-D-A-I-S-M, the tree from which Zionism sprung forth, the seedling that has brought the world to the brink of extinction. JUDAISM, the cancer that is eating the body away and left it a skeletonized hull of what it once was. JUDAISM, the root of all mankind’s present evils, and if not all of them, then what is certainly an impressive number. Judaism has been at war with us for over 2,000 years, ever since this man named Jesus of Nazareth came and blew the lid open on what Judaism‘s real agenda was….

Judaism is a declaration of war and manifested by thousands upon thousands of acts of intentional malice directed by Rabbinical generals against the rest within the non-Jewish world in matters involving money, business, politics, and culture….

Judaism has brought nothing of any good to mankind. It is a culture of death, a collection of ‘white-washed tombs, full of dead men’s bones’ just as Jesus described it. It is a den of vipers and a hangout for thieves, liars and murderers. It has been a source of misery for more people than God himself can count….

Judaism is nobody’s friend, and the sooner that the rest of us–Jew and non-Jew alike–come to realize this, the better off we will be. Get rid of it. It is a cancer. Cut it out and throw it away, as Jesus instructed that we do. It has never and will never be of any benefit to mankind. We cannot live in any kind of ‘peaceful co-existence’ with it. It is a declaration of war, and as long as it exists out there, mankind will never have peace.

Glenn describes St. John Chrysostom as his “favorite anti-Semite.” He also contrasts Judaism with all the rest of the world religions:

While others–Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and the rest of humanity–aspire to attain (and hopefully perfect) the qualities of humility, righteousness and compassion, there is a group of folks out there who aspire to attain (and hopefully perfect) the ‘qualities’ of bold, rude and disrespectful….[Jews] have no shame. They have no boundaries. There is no limit to their willingness to deceive, cheat and steal. No matter how debasing it is to themselves, to humanity or to the truth in general, they will go out there and do it. Lie as bold-facedly as anyone with the wildest of imaginations could imagine. There really is nothing that they would not do, no gutter into which they would not crawl, no sewer or septic tank into which they would not bathe in order to see that their agenda succeeds. No lie too big, no business too dirty, no distance too far.

Of course much of Glenn’s bile is directed at Israel and Zionism, as manifestations of Judaic hatred of non-Jews. In one particularly rich passage he calls for the execution of Abe Foxman of the ADL, and many other Jews, on the grounds that they are agents of Zionism and Israel and are guilty of treason:

You are worse though, Abe, you and all the others with whom you work in tandem. You are a spy, working in the service of a hostile, foreign government responsible for perpetrating acts of war against the people of the United States and elsewhere, and as such you and all the others in your gang–AIPAC, JDL, WJC, JINSA et al–deserve to be treated as spies, which is to be executed–Publicly. And with as much pain as possible.

In the meantime, until that wonderful day arrives, you might as well get used to the rise in ‘Anti-Semitism’ as you disingenuously put it. As long as you and your people insist upon living in a state of war with everyone around you, you will be disliked, shunned, exiled, mistrusted, and despised, just as your forefathers have been in every locale they have gone.

So who is this guy?

Glenn describes himself as a traditionalist Catholic. American Free Press says that he is a former school teacher who lives with his wife and eight kids in Idaho. He says that his family comes from somewhere in the Middle East, and other sites say that he is specifically from Lebanon. He used to work for American Free Press, but was fired because even such an anti-Semitic rag couldn’t stomach his wild “Jew-baiting hysteria.” He’s on Facebook. It’s unclear to me whether he is a Holocaust denier; he refers to the Holocaust and the deaths of six million Jews sometimes without further comment, but in one place he claimed that the Holocaust is “rooted in untruth, and in this case–Jewish-produced fantasy similar to anything coming out of Hollywood.” He spoke at a conference convened by Jamaat al-Muslimeen (JAM), described by ADL as “a small Muslim organization that promotes Holocaust denial and anti-Jewish conspiracy theories.” ADL also says he is or was on the board of The Barnes Review, a holocaust denial publication. He does an internet radio show and is good buddies with Mark Dankof.

    So is the fact that there is another anti-semite supposed to be anything new? People who deny the Shoa, and then say that we should all be killed? This is just another reason why we must have a strong Israel, and rely on G-d’s protection.
