I wonder how long it will take for AJ to fire hαɾɾιson Smith
I didn't know who hαɾɾιson Smith is, so I looked him up and found this. What's the problem?
hαɾɾιson Smith Tells Antisemitic Caller That ‘Jєωιѕн Organizations’ Are ‘Directing’ The FBI

Last month Infowars host hαɾɾιson Smith responded to an antisemitic caller by indulging his belief that powerful Jєωιѕн groups are controlling the government. Smith, who has spread white nationalist cօռspιʀαcιҽs in the past, falsely claimed that the FBI is being “directed” by “Jєωιѕн organizations” like the ADL and the SPLC.
During the Mar. 10, 2021 episode of his show The American Journal
, Smith took a call from “Scott in Florida” who wanted to discuss Smith’s interview with Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes
Scott called Rhodes a “hero” and “patriot,” and suggested that Smith put together a panel discussion with representatives of various extremist movements: the Oath Keepers
, the Proud Boys
, the Boogaloo Bois
, the Three Percenters
, the John Birch Society
, sovereign citizens
, and even the funeral-picketing Westboro Baptist Church
“The American people are being persecuted,” Scott told Smith. “And they’re being persecuted by a Zionist Occupied Government.” “Zionist Occupied Government,” or “ZOG,” is a white supremacist conspiracy which alleges that the federal government is under Jєωιѕн control.
“When you’ve got an FBI that interrogates, threatens people … because they don’t like their opinions
, they don’t like their thought processes, this smacks of a Zionist Occupied Government,” he said. Scott claimed that the U.S. government is “controlled” by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the Federal Reserve, which he called a “Rothschild bank.”
He continued his antisemitic rant by telling Smith that when Alex Jones uses words like “globalist” he believes it is a dog whistle for a “cabal of international Jєωry that is pushing forward this nєω ωσrℓ∂ σr∂єr, which I call the Jєω World Order.” (Smith chuckled at that particular remark.)
Scott then exhorted Infowars listeners to read the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion
. First published in Russia in 1903, the Protocols
is a forged docuмent
which purports to reveal a secret plot by Jєωιѕн leaders to rule the world. Scott insisted that the Protocols
is not a forgery.
Smith did not push back on Scott or attempt to fact check his claims in any way. Instead, Smith added fuel to the fire by claiming it is a “fact” that the “organizations who are actually advising the FBI on what to do” are “Jєωιѕн organizations” like the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
hαɾɾιson Smith insisted that he was not calling these groups “Jєωιѕн organizations” but that they describe themselves as such. While the ADL is a Jєωιѕн group whose mission
is to “stop the defamation of the Jєωιѕн people, and to secure justice and fair treatment to all,” the SPLC does not describe itself as a “Jєωιѕн organization.”
Rather, the SPLC describes itself
on its own website as the “premier U.S. non-profit organization monitoring the activities of domestic hate groups and other extremists” such as Neo-nαzιs, Klansmen, and antigovernment militias.
And, contrary to Smith’s claims, neither of these groups are “directing the FBI.”
The truth is that the ADL does partner with law enforcement
primarily by sharing information and providing educational briefings. According to a 2007 press release
the FBI had partnered with the SPLC and other civil rights groups in order to reexamine Civil Rights Era cold cases, but this partnership appears to have ended.
“So you have an organization that is of a certain ideology that is not claiming to be for everybody — it’s the Anti-Defamation League, it’s a Jєωιѕн organization — and yet they’re the ones who are directing the FBI,” Smith said. Smith also called the ADL a “hate group” for publishing articles calling him an “antisemite,” a “homophobe,” and a “racist.”
