In what way would "International Jewry" be about "imperialism"? That strikes me as a contradiction of terms.
Just to butt in here, I have found that unless you are talking about monarchical reigns or something specific, the best definition for Imperialism is probably concerned with aspects of "Empire."
As far as "International Jewry," that is kind of a shorthand for what Hitler called "International Finance Capital" in Mein Kampf
, which like Communism is very Jewish. Hitler explained Zionism by noting in Mein Kampf
that while the Jews love the idea of Israel, most Jews will not want to live there. The Diaspora
are too busy making money in Gentile lands.
Furthermore, Winston Churchill actually wrote (1920) that Zionism vs. Bolshevism was "a struggle for the soul of the Jewish people." Capitalism, Zionism, Marxism are all "Internationalist" movements. Plus, many of the same people variously support each of these versions, which seems contradictory at first glance.
The industrialist Henry Ford serialized many of these themes in his newspaper, The Dearborn Independent
as "The International Jew."
Hitler found these essays very influential, and Nazi Germany awarded pacifist Mr. Ford with a civic achievement medal, much as Presidents today award Freedom medals for activists and do-gooders involved with esoteric (and mostly Leftist) causes.
As far as Imperialism, today this has become Globalization, or "hyperglobalization" as some prefer, which is basically the old Imperialism with a new Democracy-Capitalist facelift. Think of Teddy Roosevelt's gunboats but now with bankers and internationalist diplomats marching in lockstep down the gangplank sporting their silk top hats. Instead of looking down the barrel of a 16 inch gun your country gets waterboarded by World Bank development loans and fast food franchises.
As soon as President Wilson was elected to a safe second term in office, he abandoned his campaign boast of keeping the country out of World War I to a policy openly favoring outright Interventionism. Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan, who was a Populist Democrat Isolationist, resigned in protest over President Wilson's hypocritical machinations.
Ever since the mysterious eminence grise
, Col. Edward Mandell House
convinced the progressive Democrat, President Woodrow Wilson that crusading for Democracy and Capitalism on a global scale would be good for peace and expanding stock markets, the United States has gone from a mostly nationalistic and Isolationist foreign policy to one where we actively seek out what John Quincy Adams called "Monsters to Destroy." Channeling George Orwell, Prof. Harry Elmer Barnes
would call this "Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace."
The late Chalmers Johnson
, who was critical of the Junior Bush administration after 9/11, and who wrote extensively on the American Empire and its "blowback," once described Neoconservatives as "Wilsonians on Steroids."
President Franklin Roosevelt was an ardent Wilsonian. He followed these ideals of the Liberal Internationalist set or "Wise Men"
as they are often called─many of whom were Ivy League-educated Banker Communists and outright Soviet Agents like ((( Harry Dexter White )))
. Anyway, Roosevelt's goal was to end the Depression by covertly planning for war with Japan or Germany despite the opposition to this by the American people and by America First nationalists--and in so doing getting a bankrupted and desperate British Empire at war to bequeath its legacy as Global Arbiter to the United States. FDR was a monumental charlatan by any measure.
Jewish or not, the idea that Plutocrats: Bankers, Jurists, and Diplomats, would be "Communists" seems counterintuitive, perhaps. Today most Academics I would flat-out call Communists even though they might own trust funds or come from good Jewish or Irish-Catholic families. After World War II, the Frankfurt School concept of cultural-Bolshevism was introduced, and understanding them explains a lot of activist and Social Justice movements like Feminism or gender-Marxism and their the Holy War fighting racism and nationalism, etc. This is the new mammon of Western Civilization, with its Holocaust dogma the new teleology of history.
We can really go deep into a rabbit hole on this subject, but the National Association of Scholars just published their "Social Justice Report" on this kind of campus activism. I am looking forward to reading it.
are largely Rightwing diaspora Jews (often of Russian or Ashkenazi extraction) who believe in using American power to fight Israel's wars. They hate Poles, Russians and Germans in that order, and their main goal is to fight for greater Israel and Zionist supremacy. Some Neoconservatives like Irving Kristol were actually Trotskyite Communists, but many if not most are "Red Diaper Babies" born in the USA, and they are overwhelmingly Jews.
The current Globalization regime in the United States follows a Neocon foreign policy with Neoliberal
economic policies like open-borders and free-trade, etc. The economic goal is an international specialization of labor which will keep labor costs rock bottom to maximize profits for international corporations and banking cartels who effectively own the stock in most modern governments and whole nations. The cabal overwhelmingly owns the mass-media in Western countries.
All of this is a bit oversimplified and runs the risk of conspiracy-theory, but none of it is anything new. One could argue that interest-groups pursuing their interests, often at the public expense, is by definition the Tragedy of the Commons
But "noticing" inconvenient things, and "pattern recognition," has to start somewhere. And if we accept the premise that good governance and historiography purports to follow the Scientific Method, then honest observation is essential, even if it is messy and fraught with many axes to grind.
Here is an example of the messiness I am talking about. Stalinism purged Trotskyite Communists but remained strongly philo-Semitic until the creation of the state of Israel in 1949, then the Refusenik
question became an existential struggle for the "Soul," so to speak. Many expatriate Communist Jews of Ashkenazi extraction then sought to cultivate American global power to "contain" the Soviet Union and the hated Russians, and to expand the global hegemony of Israel.
Below: Anti-Zionist demonstration on May Day, 1970 in the Soviet Union. The Jewish "Weltspinne" or world-spider is the "weapon of Imperialism."
