Mike Harris, Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theorist, Has Neo-Nazi Ties

From white suprema­cists to con­spir­acy the­o­rists, extrem­ist cir­cles have been pro­mot­ing Mike Har­ris’ claim that Israel is behind the Sandy Hook Mas­sacre. Har­ris was given a plat­form to dis­sem­i­nate his hate­ful views on Press TV, the Iran­ian government’s English-language pro­pa­ganda network.

Har­ris has ties to mem­bers of the National Social­ist Move­ment (NSM), the country’s largest neo-Nazi group. Har­ris was an asso­ciate of J.T. Ready, a for­mer NSM mem­ber and an anti-immigrant activist who shot and killed five peo­ple in May 2012, before killing himself. 

In Octo­ber 2009, Har­ris attended an NSM rally in River­side, Cal­i­for­nia, along with Ready (see photo). Har­ris joined NSM mem­bers for a group shot at the River­side rally. He is in the back row, the fourth per­son from the left. Ready is the sec­ond per­son from the left in the same row, hold­ing his hand in a “Sieg Heil” salute.

Harris’s con­spir­a­to­r­ial ideas about Jews extend beyond the tragedy at Sandy Hook. In 2011, for exam­ple, he wrote an arti­cle in the anti-Semitic web­site Vet­er­ans Today that blamed “orga­nized Jewry, the Neo-Pharisees that com­prise the unelected crim­i­nal shadow gov­ern­ment” for the tragic shoot­ing in Tuc­son in which 19 peo­ple were shot.

He called Con­gress­woman Gif­fords a “pawn” in the Jews’ “big­ger agenda,” which included per­pe­trat­ing 9/11 and the Okla­homa City bomb­ing as false flag oper­a­tions to help bring about a total­i­tar­ian state in Amer­ica which would “impose hell” on Amer­i­can citizens.

  • You’re right. It appears on David Ickes web­site. He is a New Age Neo Nazi Guru poi­son­ing 1,000s of minds. Also appear­ing on Face­book threads about this tragedy. Lies have to be con­fronted. As a Gen­tile, I stand with Israel and the Jew­ish Peo­ple. I don’t like liars and haters.


    • Isn’t that the “rep­til­ian aliens con­trol the world” guy? Why any­one is tak­ing him seri­ously is beyond me.

    The neo-Nazi rise, with all their lies hate and anti-semitic pro­pa­ganda, is more exten­sive than a rec­og­niz­able polit­i­cal party, it reaches into the fab­ric of our soci­ety. It’s also helped by neg­a­tive stereo­types of Jews in movies, which I do not see Jews protest­ing. It’s time for Jews to stop mak­ing lit­tle rip­ples of protest and take the cues of real polit­i­cal orga­niz­ers like Mal­colm X, to openly protest anti-semitism actively, in pub­lic, a loud out­cry with real action behind the words.

      I agree. We need to take a hard stand against the rise in anti-semitism through­out the world. Did you know that in Den­mark Jews are not out­wardly shows signs of being Jew­ish in fear of vio­lence? And, in Hun­gary some politi­cians have called for a Jew­ish reg­istry of names, par­tic­u­larly in gov­ern­ment and influ­en­tial posi­tions? Also, the eco­nomic col­lapse in Greece has led the dis­en­fran­chised to join with the neo-nazi group Golden Dawn. Groups like the NSM and Har­ris are not likely to gain power due to lack of resources and lead­er­ship abil­ity But, we have to take a stand within our cul­ture. We can’t sit back and expect for things to return to nor­mal like they did in the begin­ning of the Nazi rise to power. No, we need to be Mac­cabees, not asleep like our grand­par­ents sadly were.

    Har­ris is a par­a­site who makes his liv­ing sell­ing hate. His con­nec­tions to white suprema­cist groups are well known. He also gave a very recent inter­view to Iran­ian State TV. I’m sure he got paid well for that anti­se­mitic dia­tribe. He may actu­ally believe some of what he preaches, but I doubt it. The only thing that really mat­ters to a freak like him is increas­ing his noto­ri­ety, and thereby his wealth.

    As a Jew, I can assure Mr Har­ris that killing chil­dren is not on our agenda. I believe that has been his group’s agenda in the past and still is. Speak­ing of killing chil­dren, it is not sur­pris­ing that Har­ris would asso­ciate with tod­dler killer, JT Ready. He would say, 6 mil­lion more. I say, 6 mil­lion more Jews on the planet would be wonderful!

  • Nazis never cease to amaze me with their hatred of us Jews.

  • After look­ing at a blow up of the photo, non of those peo­ple look like intel­li­gent spec­i­mens. Why am I not surprised?.

    mike har­ris is a dan­ger to the World…he should suf­fer and die like the dog he is.

  • Maq­sood

    Don’t deny that most of the Hol­ly­wood and media is con­trolled by Jew­ish lobbyists

    • And now you have removed all doubt. Should have kept your mouth shut.
