Courtland Madison Asher (April 24, 1893 - December 25, 1967) known as Court Asher was a Muncie, Indiana editor and publisher of the The X-Ray. He once was a Kleagle (local organizer) in the Ku Klux Klan. During World War II he was indicted for sedition but did not stand trial.

In the past he worked as a machinist, saloon owner and bootlegger.[1]

Asher was a veteran of the First World War. He started The X-Ray in 1937 to get back at the corrupt Democratic political machine that ran Indiana state government, focusing on the favoritism of officials that granted liquor licenses.[2] The paper gradually gravitated to Republican causes and isolationism.

He was the author of "The Jew-Nited Nations Red Rag."
