Jason Bermas' Zionist Methods Right Out of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals Textbook
Jason Bermas, host of Genesis Networks "Info Warrior" radio program, has repeatedly used techniques remarkably similar the infamous Communist Saul Alinsky's methods for attacking opponents laid out in Alinsky's primer, Rules for Radicals. Whether Bermas was trained in the Alinsky methodology specifically or whether he merrily uses the same techniques without realizing the similarities, we do not know.
Bermas' biographical history is vague. He says he worked as a "graphics designer" in New York City. We are told that in New York he assisted others in producing the "home-made" video, Loose Change.
Patriot radio listeners have often noticed how Jason Bermas gets steamed up when a caller has the audacity to bring up the subject of Zionism and the Jews. On one occasion, Bermas compared such callers to people who believed in UFOs and little green men from outer space.
But when a caller to his show (April 13 broadcast) suggested that the Jewish interests "run 90% of all the media," Bermas' employment of Saul Alinsky's rules for radicals really came in to view. Bermas viciously counterattacked the caller with slander, ridicule, and a host of straw men.
"Everybody hates the Jews," Bermas ranted. "...Hook nose people don't run the world...while they suck the blood out of babies in some weird ritual you believe in, all right?"
Now notice: This was strange because the caller had said absolutely nothing about "hating" the Jews. The caller had said nothing about "hook-nosed people," nor had he alleged that Jews "suck blood out of babies in some weird ritual..."
Bermas was using "straw men" to exaggerate, slander and destroy. This is classic Saul Alinsky.
Bermas also boasted that in taking on this topic ("Jewish control of the media") he was taking on the "Nazis." Ah yes, here again is Alinsky stuff.
Now, some of America's top academics, men like Dr. Stephen Walt of Harvard University, Dr. John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago, Dr. Henry Makow, Michael Hoffman, Mark Glenn, Texe Marrs, Michael Collins Piper, Reverend Ted Pike, and Dr. Kevin MacDonald have written scholarly works documenting the Jewish influence over and control of Hollywood and the Media. Columnist Pat Buchanan and scores of others have warned of undue Jewish ownership of the media. Even many Jewish authorities (Joel Stein, LA Times columnist; Neal Gabler, University of Southern California; et al) admit Jewish influence and control of the media. Yet, here we have Bermas insidiously using Alinsky-coded language that would effectively label one and all of these reputable men, "Nazis."
But Bermas wasn't through. More slashing Alinsky tactics quickly surfaced as Bermas growled, "Oh, Jews run the media, they're like rats and cockroaches."
Obviously, the caller had decidedly not compared Jews to "rats and cockroaches." No, nor have Mearsheimer, Makow, Marrs, Pike, Piper, Buchanan, or a host of others who have written and spoken authoritatively on this topic of Zionism ever used such heinous language. Here again, a fake "straw man" is introduced.
Alinsky's book, Rules for Radicals, used effectively both by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, not to mention countless other socialists, Marxists, and liberal agitators, recommends that radicals cleverly package and use the language of scorn and ridicule to put down and destroy opponents. Bermas, too, adopts this tactic when he rages against the caller, declaring, "Give me a break, the Jews run the media! Why don't you discredit the movement a little further, sir."
"..come on, 'the Jews,' come on, it's just so ridiculous."
"...and then you have these guys that find a Jew under every bed...it's just unbelievable."
Jewish radicals like Alinsky especially spew venom against anyone suspected of being a "conspiracy theorist." Likewise, Bermas rudely interrupted the caller, by declaring, "Look man, it's not a Jewish conspiracy, okay? Get over it."
However, the worst of Bermas' Alinskyesque assault was reserved for the conclusion of his rant, when he called for the death of those whom he had falsely caricatured as "Nazis" and "anti-Semites."
"...why are you still breathing?" Bermas interjected. "I mean, why haven't you really just taken a toaster oven and thrown it into the bathtub with yourself and had a party? Because that's what you need to do."
"Nothing I hate more than the anti-Semites and the Nazis. Not a thing. Can't stand it."
Chicago's Saul Alinsky, whose book Rules for Radicals is actually dedicated to "Lucifer, the very first rebel," couldn't have said it any better.
(Editor's Comments: While Jason Bermas is affiliated with Alex Jones' organization, we wish to emphasize that we have never heard Mr. Jones himself say these kinds of things, either on air or on his website. Indeed, Jones' Infowars.com has, on a number of occasions, exposed Israeli and Zionist aggression and conduct. There is no evidence, then, that Jason Bermas' hateful, prejudiced views are shared or even known by Alex Jones, a man whom we consider a solid patriot. We do note, however, that Bermas' radio show is touted in Infowars.com website.)
