Anti-Semite Launches Precinct Campaign

A Republican Party activist in Cincinnati says Jews were responsible for the Holocaust. Jim Condit Jr. – the star of The Nazi-Zionist Connection: The Final Solution to Adolf Hitler – is trying to organize precinct committees in counties throughout the Tri-State.

In the 1980s, Condit – who has often run for city council and Congress, never winning election – was part of the Platform Republican movement, a group of anti-abortion activists who unsuccessfully sought to take control of the Hamilton County Republican Party.

His latest effort, Precinct Activists Greater Cincinnati Meetup for 2010, is bi-partisan. An online appeal describes the organization’s purpose.

“The goal … is to educate and mobilize at least 500 citizens in Hamilton County and a comparable number of individuals in all surrounding counties in the Greater Cincinnati area to attend one of the major party (Democratic or Republican) county precinct organizational meetings circa June 2010,” Condit writes. … “Through intelligent participation in the precinct system, Americans can restore all the true freedoms enumerated under the Constitution, institute an honest money system and once again put America on the path of its true destiny.”

That might sound innocent enough, but Condit has a well-documented history of anti-Semitic diatribes, asserting that Jews and Freemasons run the financial system and news media. That context is useful in weighing his latest effort to change the United States from the bottom-up, at the precinct level, so that political parties can be taken over by “normal’ people.

“This meetup is devoted to training normal Americans how to participate in the precinct system in the major party of their choice,” Condit writes. … “Until enough normal Americans understand the how and why of the precinct system, we are not even on the playing field.”

Fighting Jews and swine flu

Few would call the playing field on which Condit operates “normal.” He operates Real News 24/7, a Web site full of bizarre conspiracy theories. His take on the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, for example, has nothing to do with Al Qaeda.

“Overwhelming evidence indicates that 9-11 was an ‘inside job,’ using remote controlled airplanes and controlled demolition bombs in the World Trade Towers … pulled off by traitorous elements within the U.S. military that are loyal to the nation usurping the name ‘Israel’ and to the worldwide Jewish Supremacist/Freemasonic financial network,” Real News 24/7 says.

If you don’t know about this, it’s not because you haven’t been following the news. In fact, your ignorance comes from the fact that you have been following the news. The journalists are all in on the conspiracy, according to Condit.

“The five big TV networks, every major radio station and every big city daily newspaper in the USA is now owned or controlled by the top anti-Christ Jewish Supremists,” Real News 24/7 says.

The Federal Reserve, the system for counting ballots in elections across the United States and even the Roman Catholic Church have all been taken over by the Jews and Freemasons, according to Condit. Real News 24/7 says the Vatican was threatened with a nuclear attack in 1958 if it didn’t pick a pope chosen by the Jewish-Masonic conspiracy. The church hasn’t been right ever since, according to Condit; even the Mass has been deliberately ruined.

It’s not as though Condit sees no good in the world, however. He stretches back to 1922. That’s when Karl Franz Josef Ludwig Hubert Georg Maria von Habsburg-Lothringen died. Don’t know the name? He was the last emperor of Austria. Real News 24/7 has a tribute page to him.

He, too, it seems, fell victim to the grand world conspiracy.

“He reigned as Charles I, Emperor of Austria (and, also, Charles IV, King of Hungary) from 1916 until 1918, when Austria was proclaimed a republic by the Freemasonic forces in the empire, backed by the international Jewish banking houses,” Real News 24/7 says.

Fortunately, there are some things we can do to protect ourselves from some of the calumny unloosed by the conspirators. In order to help support his political machinations – and to keep “normal” Americans healthy – Condit urges people to buy a mineral concoction.

“You can also help the precinct strategy – and help your family fight infections, viruses, swine flu or any other potential plague – by investigating and purchasing MMS mineral breakthrough ($20 per year per family!) … Seriously, this may be our only hope against a real or contrived plague or pandemic,” Real News 24/7 says.

‘So beyond the pale’

Condit describes himself as “an investigative journalist in the fields of honest elections, current events, history, grassroots strategies, and health, whose career now spans over 37 years.” In years past, he printed and sold T-shirts.

Brian Jaffee, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), says he is familiar with Condit’s work.

“It’s offensive,” Jaffee says. “It repeats a lot of vicious canards and odious lies that have been harmful to Jews and other minorities. The notion of Israeli responsibility for 9/11 is beyond outrageous.”

Jaffee says been monitoring Condit’s activity for years, including radio ads that aired on Cincinnati stations during his past congressional campaigns.

“Every couple years he sort of re-emerges,” Jaffee says. “His favorite tactic is to use the law to his advantage. We have free speech in this country, thank goodness. But he uses the fair-access law to spread this kind of material. Every October and November my phone rings from alarmed members of the community, both Jewish and non-Jewish, saying, ‘Do you know there is this man claiming Jews control the banking system and media?’ ”

The Fair Access Law requires TV and radio stations to accept political ads from candidates in elections for federal office – a fact duly noted by Real News 24/7.

“The stations must run the ads in the time blocks (i.e. noon to 3 p.m.) specified by the candidate (who is subject to the same rules the stations apply to business advertisers), and the stations must give the candidate the equivalent of the lowest price which they have charged a business in that calendar year,” Condit’s Web site says.

Curiously, however, Condit doesn’t explain how the Jewish-Masonic conspiracy that controls the media overlooked such a big loophole.

Perhaps the most offensive of Condit’s anti-Semitic rants is The Nazi-Zionist Connection, a DVD in which he lays out his argument that Jews perpetrated the Holocaust. Among other assertions, Condit purports to prove that Hitler had “Jewish ancestry.”

Real News 24/7 pitches the DVD as the “most controversial of the year.”

“An attempt has been underway since 1945 by the organized worldwide Jewish lobby to replace the crucifixion of Christ with the ‘crucifixion’ of the Jewish race as purveyed by the Hollywood version of the Holocaust,” Condit’s Web site says. “The information on this DVD makes clear that, while numerous everyday Jews were rounded up, abandoned, and sacrificed by the top Zionist organizations and rulers who were working in cooperation with the Nazis. The series of events known today as the ‘Holocaust’ was the product in large part of Zionist-Jewish Elite financing and Zionist-Jewish Elite scheming. (This is, of course, not to minimize the death of even one innocent person who was caught in the hellish crossfire known as World War II.)”

That disclaimer does little to soften Jaffee’s assessment.

“That is so beyond the pale it’s hard to know how to respond,” he says. “Unfortunately, there are people like Mr. Condit from the radical fringe who propagate this nonsense.”

Advocates and journalists face a difficult choice when anti-Semitism or other kinds of racism appear, according to Jaffee: Expose it, with the risk of giving hate speech further publicity; or ignore it, with the risk that it will spread unchallenged.

“Our mission is to protect Jewish security,” Jaffee says. “With that in mind, I have to navigate a balancing act between inadvertently publicizing this man and his views, versus letting the community know that we are not going to put up with this kind of hate speech.”

The good news is that Condit’s conspiracy theories, like his past political campaigns, seem to have had no measurable success.

“What I haven’t noticed is any up-tick in nastiness,” Jaffee
