James Wall, going down a dark road

After having posted my article, James Wall, Debbie Menon and Veterans Today's new anti-Semitic site-Update, explaining that James Wall, former editor of Christian Century, and now contributing editor, had become an associate editor of a new Veterans Today site, I am pleased that Dexter Van Zile of Camera has continued to pursue the issue. First came an article on the Jewish news site, the algemeiner, titled ‘The Christian Century’ Must Remove Anti-Semite from Masthead.
In the article, Van Zile noted that “David Heim, Christian Century’s executive editor has made it perfectly clear that he will not address the issue. “James Wall did a lot for our magazine,” he said. “He deserves to be on our masthead.”  Now Van Zile has written a letter to the Trustees of the Christian Century asking them to remove Wall’s name from their masthead. The letter can be read here, “[To the Trustees of the Christian Century Foundation:]

It is truly unbelievable that Christian Century trustees and the executive editor would want to retain the name of a former editor who is now associate editor of an organization that publishes articles by the former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, David Duke.

In a sense that puts the Progressive Christian Century in bed with—well the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan as well as a whole assortment of anti-Semites.

James Wall exists as the Henry Ford of our day. He needn’t write The International Jew; he simply approves, applauds and makes official those who do.  He is the person whose past work and reputation will either sway others away from their integrity or cause them to finally wake up and say I will not go with him down that dark road.

You nailed it.

James M. Wall has gone full circle.

When he started out, he was harshly critical of southern white racists.

Now he's on the editorial board of a magazine that publishes their stuff.
