Infowars Pushes Anti-Semitic “Kneel Before ZOG” Thyroid Medication Advertisement

The controversial radio host Alex Jones has stirred up controversy with a controversial “Kneel Before ZOG” thyroid medication advertisement.

The ad, posted to his YouTube channel, features a what appears to be an Orthodox Jewish man screaming at black men to “kneel before ZOG,” and the blacks willfully obeying. “ZOG” is a reference to “Zionist Occupation Government,” an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization that tracks hate, describes as “virulently anti-Semitic.” The ad then cuts to a British man with poor posture sitting at a desk in front of an American flag talking about a thyroid medication that he claims can give you a higher IQ.

“It’s the same old story,” Heidi Beirich of the SPLC told CNN. “Anti-Semitic advertisers feed on the fact that so many people hate Jews in order to sell products which have no use or are a scam. This person thinks ‘I’ll buy the product because I hate Jews,’ not because it is a useful or valuable product.”

The SPLC calls this “Antisemiploitation” advertisement, and claims that it is rising as more people begin to hate the Jews and believe that the Holocaust is a hoax. It is often used to sell “magic potion” type “dietary supplements,” and is even used to relabel existing products to sell them at a huge premium.

“One Indiana man was selling brooms, just regular brooms that he had bought at Lowe’s for ten bucks a pop, for $99.99 and calling them ‘Auschwitz oven cleaners.’ They were selling like hotcakes, because people were paying for the hate, not the broom,” Beirich explained.

The man selling the Anti-Semitic brooms, Jim McGrady, had to shut down his business when the SPLC took action against him. He had his site shut down, his credit card and PayPal processing canceled, his bank accounts frozen, his properties seized and his family stalked and threatened for having promoted the absurd and discredited belief in a powerful Jewish conspiracy.

Beirich didn’t specify what action the SPLC would be taking against Jones over the now-infamous thyroid ad, but implied it would be swift and egregious.
