I just saw an old history channel doc on the subject. You know, before the channel devolved into shitty reality TV shows about fat hicks. Anyway, over half the "experts/historians" they had featured in it were full-blown kikes. Not 'maybe he is, maybe he isn't' types of jews. I mean full blown, right off of a Nazi cartoon caricature poster. Why do these hook-noses care about some minuscule event in a backwater in New England that took place over 300 years ago so much? Something smells ashy. Even The Crucible was written by a kike.
I imagine it's because they like being able to pull the "witch-hunt" card whenever people start putting the pieces together regarding jewish involvement. "Oy vey! This is just another witch-hunt! Has Salem taught you goyim nothing?!" The witch-trials are also constantly compared to McCarthyism.
