No, he isn't. He is an anti-Semitic, anti-Bush, anti-government,
idiotic, lamebrain, numbskull, moronic, imbecilic, half-witted,
chowderheaded, mallet-headed, nest-headed, paranoid, stupid, infantile,
childish, no-account, lazy, shiftless, crazy, schizophrenic, neurotic,
nincompoop, addlebrained, empty-skull, screwball, wing-nut, whacko,
spaced-out, whacked, drugged, stoned, drunk, weak-willed, effeminate,
fat, ugly, smelly, sweaty, foot-stinkin', gator-rasslin', pickemup
truck drivin', Pabst Blue Ribbon swillin', Thunderbird gluggin',
gun-totin' redneck dude!

Have I left any angry epithets out?

Mel Gibson, eat your heart out! And I ain't even drunk.

Further to Abruxis' practicing psychiatry without a licence, I would
take issue with one specific charge: that of Harder being an
anti-semite. Although both Jews and Arabs are Semitic peoples, I take
it that you are accusing him of being anti-Jewish. I don't think this
is true and I would be interested in seeing your evidence for this
statement. I have listened to Chuck off and on for 15 years and I have
never heard him utter any thing anti-Semitic, indeed for some time he
had as a regular guest one Victor Mordecai (as I recall) who discussed
current events from an Israeli perspective. Note that the Iranians are
not a Semitic people: they are Aryans. They even changed the name of
their country from Persia to Iran in the 30's to curry favour with
Hitler: Iran being easier to pronounce in Farsi than Aryan. But I
digress.
The greatest shock I ever had from Chuck's program was on Jan 1,
2000. For the previous two years Chuck had been banging the drums of
Y2K doom and gloom and had been touting generators, a year's supply of
dried food, solar cells, and other disaster products. Many of his
followers spent their last dime on this stuff. When, on Jan 1, nothing
happened, I tuned in to see what Chuck would have to say to his flock.
Nothing. Ne..rien, nada. He serenely cruised through his broadcast as
if none of this had anything to do with him. Pretty shabby, I thought.
Later reflection brought me to the conclusion that considering the
litigious nature of US society, he dare not say anything in fear of
getting the pants sued off him. It is sad that so many listeners hang
on every word of radio pundits and treat their ideas as gospel.
Chuck Harder has many listeners and obviously, many detractors. I
would suggest that the best course of action is to listen to a few of
his programs and make up your own mind. Of course, if Abruxis comes up
with some real evidence, that would change things.

Chuck Harder kept saying, over and over again, "President Bush doesn't
get it ... he's a golden boy."
I would call that an anti-Semitic slur.
Why do I say this?
First, Bush Jr. is the most pro-Israel U.S. president since Harry
Truman. Everyone knows that; Chuck Harder knows that.
Second, there is the use of the words "gold" and "boy," two traditional
anti-Semitic slurs - and, in the context of Chuck's anti-Semitic rants
in early 1995 ("Jewish greed," a Wall Street controlled by "Greenbergs
and Sheinbergs"; The Nation, April 10, 1995, page 491) - very, very,
very suspicious).
Mr. Ve3, I respect your contention that Chuck Harder is not
anti-Semitic. I disagree; I think he is. To quote Dave Mason in the
late 1970's, "we just disagree" on Chuck Harder's attitudes towards
Jews. I suspect that if we presented our cases to a judge and jury, we
would have an equal chance of swaying the verdict.

I think the best thing for me to do is just drop this whole subject and
quit these blogs. I think Chuck Harder is an anti-Semite, period. Just
like Mel Gibson. I look at Mel Gibson and chuckle at his pathetic
behavior; I might draw hideous characterizations of him with snakes
coming out of his mouth (ditto Pat Buchanan); but in the end, I just
blow it off.
Chuck Harder's anti-Semitism is his problem, no one else's. It
certainly isn't mine. He'll be on the radio for another 15 years or so,
but he won't get anywhere - despite all his blather about "rebuilding."
The radio industry has concluded that Chuck Harder is too far out to be
economically viable. They won't touch him with a 1,000-foot
transmitter. Eventually he'll be off the air for one reason or another,
but it's futile to wait and count the days until that happy event. It's
gonna be a long, long time before Chuck hangs up his mike, and I'll
just have to learn to live with him - and his anti-Semitism.
