Sean Kent Opts For Narrative Over Integrity
This doesn’t apply to everyone I encounter on this topic of course, but whenever I notice someone is really putting their back into anti-Israel rhetoric or has ‘BDS’ in their Twitter bio, I find it useful to subject them to a quick purity test.
Searching some key words against their output can often reveal everything you need to know about their motivations. Useful terms include: ‘9/11’, ‘false flag’, ‘holocaust’, ‘protocols’ and ‘inside job’ – for reasons which should be obvious, but in case they are not I’ll explain.
No small portion of anti-Israel sentiment is generated by anti-Semitism (tiresome, yet obligatory ‘not all’ disclaimer). Given many anti-Jewish tropes are conspiratorial in nature, I often discover a clear overlap between conspiracy theorists and those taking up staunch anti-Israel positions (obligatory, yet still tiresome reiteration of ‘not all’).
This brings me to a man named Robert Martin. Martin’s entire raison d’etre appears to be to oppose all things Israel. Rather predictably, a quick search for 9/11 on his twitter feed revealed that Martin shared the following memes on the 2015 anniversary of 9/11:
When asked outright whether he thought the perpetrators of one of the worst attacks on Western soil had been Islamic fundamentalists, he answered in the negative, then blocked:
This brings me to a podcast Martin appeared on which was released after our exchange. You all know what CJ Werlman is about of course, but you may not know that he also co-hosts a podcast with a ‘comedian’ named Sean Kent. Their latest guest happened to be the aforementioned Martin:
What are Werleman and Kent’s opinions on 9/11 conspiracy theorists though?
Seems rather unambiguous to me.
Once it was revealed to Sean that his guest appeared to be a 9/11 ‘truther’ he responded not by denouncing Robert Martin as ‘bat-shit crazy’ or a ‘psycho’, but by labelling me a ‘turd’ for highlighting this fact. Then he also blocked.
One notable troll got so choked up that their anti-Israel hero had been exposed as a tinfoil hat wearing crackpot that they saw no other recourse than to project about my manhood.
This wouldn’t be the first time they have excused nefarious ethics to defend ‘one of their own’, i.e someone who is anti-Israel.
This is not a mere trivial difference of politics between Martin and his hosts. Martin is a man who seems to think the US Government are responsible for 9/11 – or at the very least he endorses the view that they are. This is an extreme position, regardless of its popularity.
Given how claims of Israeli involvement often go hand in hand with this 9/11 ‘inside job’ narrative, it would be remiss of Sean and CJ not to follow this up. But they won’t.
Just so long as he keeps ‘bitch-slapping’ the IDF eh?
The message Sean and CJ are sending to their listeners here is clear: Just so long as you are sufficiently anti-Israel, everything else gets a free pass.
