Sasquatch Israel

At a 9th anniversary 9/11 rally, a proud sign-holder advocating for the reality of Bigfoot is accused of trying to send an anti-semitic political message.

Here is the reprinted commentary from the American Power blog.

"Then turning around, I saw this kid yacking it up for the crowd, obviously having a blast with this ugly Jew-hating sign. And what does that mean, "SASQUATCH ISRAEL"? This is a play on the "legitimacy myth" of Israel's existence. As there's of course a "Sasquatch myth," it's worth noting the implied comparison: that Israel is also an ape-like beast existing only in historical folklore. Absent legitimacy, Israel has "no right to exist." This kid's sign is but one more example of eliminationist anti-Semitism. And look at how overjoyed he is in boasting this hatred. Creepy." --Donald Douglas


Below is the "overjoyed" kid



Douglas apparently didn't notice that the sign actually had three words, all spelled correctly, rather than two words with one of them spelled incorrectly: Sasquatch Is Real. It didn't have anything at all to do with Israel.

  1. Interesting how a few words can be taken so wrong.

  2. I won't go too far down this path, but I realized an interesting irony in this faux pas of Mr. Douglas. The first thing I want to say however is that I'm not into organized religion, but I am spiritually grounded enough to think freely in this area. I've also done some related research in the past because I prefer to understand all theories that may have relevance to possibly explain Sasquatch. This may be the least discussed or understood too because all such discussions are usually prohibited in nearly every forum. I don't feel we learn anything that way, but of course I also understand the problems that arise from religion debates that develop. Its not that I necessarily subscribe to the following either, I'm just pointing out the historical reference, so hopefully that's not an issue.

    As for the irony of 'Sasquatch Israel'. OK here goes, many have heard of the followers of Moses and 'Children of Israel' who were searching for the Promised Land right? So in Numbers 13:32-33 of their travels, Moses received a 'bad' report from his spies about encountering giants (the sons of Anak, who were said to be descendants of the Nephilim, aka 'Fallen Angels'). Now there is debate as to what is meant by 'bad report', but is this one of several Biblical references where (sasquatch) are first mentioned?

    And thus 'Sasquatch Israel' (not Sasquatch Is-Real) does have some interesting though unintentional historical relevance in what may be some of the very first documented sightings of bigfoot by those from Israel? It doesn't excuse Mr. Douglas either. lol

    Oh and there is a 'Book of Giants' as well. They are part of the Dead Sea Scrolls found on the edge of Israel, of which the Book of Enoch is derived too (which also mentions the Nephilim). Isn't it uncanny, just like every other piece of evidence surrounding Sasquatch, the 'Book of Giants' is missing content due to its deterioration over time. Are these people of Israel offering the very first accounts of discussing the giants we know today? Hmm

    OK, that's enough, will go there no more. lol
