Noah David Simon is an enigma. To me, anyway. My first experience with Noah was seeing him and hearing him [big time] in a Tiny Chat. What a mouth that guy had. Albeit ’twas late at night and he thought he was in the boys locker room, just him and Appletree. Little did he know that @naomilitvin was a fly on the wall. Later, when I heard him call in to the JIDF radio show, I got a better focus on Noah. He is an an artist, but also an intellectual and philosophizer, politicist, and Passionate Jew, with a real Yiddisha cup, and not necessarily in that order. He seems to be a very private man, but if you know where to look, and you listen when he speaks out; your synapses will explode in Fourth of July fireworks. I respectfully submit to my readers, the @CriticalAnalyst…
Naomi: Why are you known as the Critical Analyst? Are you as tough as you look?
Noah: Mostly sarcasm. I hate the industry of psychoanalysis. Chemicals should not be forced on people for sanity. Shrinks are essentially a religion masquerading as a science. The term “Critical Analysis” is used mostly by Leftists and Feminists and it was very important to take the language of objectivity away from the priesthood of academia. I never thought of myself as tough, but I know I do intimidate people. Perhaps being oblivious to being intimidating is my weakness.
Naomi: Why do you call yourself the Gimp on Linkedin?
Noah: No one I have ever known has ever had a job from Linkedin and when they have… GIMP sounds like a label that is about right.
Naomi: Can you please tell us something about yourself, your art?
Noah: I am opposed to the “equivalence” of Gender Engineering. No one wanted to hear my point of view in NY and LA. Visual arts were the only way I could express myself because you create the context. Obviously I hated abstract art for this reason… and years later I learned that most of abstract expressionism was sponsored by governments to take the narrative out. Censorship is used by leftist establishment to silence masculine voices opposed to feminism. Ironically the feminists are also radicals that were silenced, but now they control the system through opaque ideology. Feminism is a wink wink joke that the establishment has accepted as a tool to contain society “Bulls”. The CIA also was funding Clement Greenberg and Jackson Pollock for similar reasons.* Narrative is dangerous to establishment institutions. It isn’t that art makes radicals… rather it is that radical speakers are forced into art.
Naomi: In response to my declaration that I quit Facebook, you tweeted back that you don’t run from any networks. a) Can you please explain that? b) How do you really feel about Facebook?
Noah: My experience has been that facebook allows more freedom then twitter. Appletree disagrees, but to me there is a social media cultural problem that is bigger then one company. I am here… I don’t trust anything. I wish I was naive enough to think twitter was really living up to their claim that they don’t censor. They deleted hundreds of my accounts because I pointed out a hole in their network. Rather then take me seriously many influential social media people just laughed at me and asked me to prove my claim. I did that and they deleted my account. I could of just as easily done it without anyone noticing, but I wanted to prove a point. Twitter is no place to solicit people to talk to the military.
Naomi: Are there any issues going on right now, in regard to your political activism, and/or loyalties to certain people, that may have put you in danger?
Noah: Unlikely. I don’t go out much. I spend most of my time alone.
Naomi: I have read that someone has cyber-squatted you & I have personally seen the harassing Tweets to you. a) Do you feel violated? b) Do you know why you have been targeted?
Noah: I called out that person’s friend for making a Hymie Town joke on a popular blog. Rather then apologize… he/she/it (yes, it was ambiguous) sent that person to troll me. He is breaking the law, but I presently don’t have the funds to sue him without a lawyer working pro bono. I’m very certain I would win a lawsuit if it ever went to court. You don’t have a right to take an artist’s name with knowledge that he has a career using that name in his signature…, which is legally a copyright.
Naomi: Is it true that at one time people thought you were David Appletree?
Noah: Yes. Mostly because they were idiots. David and I don’t even hold many of the same views. I agree with him only within the present context. I am strongly against censorship and in college made newspapers for violating a college policy regarding pornography on University Computers. It is only within the context that facebook is presenting themselves as a filter for what is obscene that I ask them to also then apply their logic evenly. To not do so is arbitrary and betrays an intent of violence towards Jews.
Naomi: I saw your Sukkas video and loved your dynamic Sukka. It really delivered a punch. It reminded me of Being John Malkovich. What did you have on your mind that day?
Noah: Just wanted to document the thing. It is still up and will be in use next Sukkot. It is built right into a grapevine. There isn’t any narrative to it… I also do abstract stuff… sometimes.
Naomi: Do you think that American Jews have the right to make any decisions for Israel?
Noah: I used to think so, but not now. We really f#(%ed up this year. We were socially pressured into this guy Obama and we have no right to set agendas concerning Israel’s survival until we start raising some capital to undo the damage we have done.
Naomi: Do you have hope for Israel?
Noah: It is do or die. Islam doesn’t want peace with Jews. I’m very disappointed with Netanyahu this week for stalling Jewish survival. I’m not literal in my interpretation of the bible, but we do not need to let others Ethnically cleanse us at will.
Thanks so much, Noah…Noah David Simon http://simonstudio.com/ark * Noah: with this last minute update… I got a little carried away with creativity. The difference between me and Alex Jones is I think about this kind of stuff.
thanks to Naomi Litvin for her patience with me. It took me months to do this interview on her blog.
