I think you make some good points. For one thing it is most annoying for me when people blithely claim that so-and-so was "jewish" just because they don't like them.
For example, whatever one thinks of Dwight D. Eisenhower, I have never seen any convincing evidence that he was Jewish, and the same with Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Charlie Chaplin was a Communist or sympathizer who lived out the last of his days as an expatriate in Switzerland to evade FBI surveillance. He himself claimed Jewishness, but that was probably just to troll the Nazis after breaking with his silent film "Tramp" routine to make a "Talkie," his Great Dictator
parody, which as I understand it, Hitler actually got a kick out of.
I can't think of the number of times I have heard that Judy Garland (aka Francis Gumm) of the Wizard of Oz
was Jewish, but apparently not.
More importantly, however, is somebody like the NKVD chief Lavrentiy Beria
. I have heard it stated many times that Beria was a Jew and sometimes that he was an "anti-Semitic Jew." Although Beria was a loathsome creature, a loyal Stalin henchman who might have been a serial rapist and murderer, I think the evidence is pretty slim that he was in any way a Jew.
Of Stalin's three prominent Soviet secret police chiefs who were all purged, Yagoda, Yezhov, and Beria, apparently only Genrikh Yagoda
I think it is clear that if we are going to evaluate whether Bolshevism is Jewish, we have to first of all define who is a Jew.
Another interesting accusation is of homosexuality. Nikolai Yezhov
was so suspected. And a longstanding accusation made by his enemies against longtime FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, one of the most stalwart officials rooting out Communist subversion from the time of the first Red Scare circa 1919 ─ until deep into his senility in the Nixon Administration at the time of his death in 1972, was that "the Hoov" played for the other team.
Other than his being a bachelor with perhaps an overly severe religious upbringing, I have never found any reliable evidence whatsoever for the homosexuality claim besides a young J. Edgar Hoover once donning a dress for a frat-style beach party and so being photographed.
In the 5th grade I went to a Halloween party as Norman Bates' mother from the 1960 movie Psycho.
I actually hadn't seen the movie, and my Mother never would have let me see it, but I knew enough about the story. I used an old granny dress and an old mop to make the wig, garish stage makeup, and it was a pretty convincing costume ─ but not something that I otherwise would have ventured doing. The party was held at the church, and most people there were unfamiliar with the movie, so that dampened things a little. (I also did not have the signature butcher knife or a similar prop or it might have been more obvious what the character was.) In any case, I don't think I would incorporate a granny dress into any kind of costume today. Halloween only came once a year in those days. Now with Drag Queen Story Hour
at the Library, every day is Halloween (or maybe Pedo Christmas). I usually just stay home and eat candy.
You cited the legendary 1919 telegram from the Columbia-educated diplomat and U.S. Army intelligence analyst Major Montgomery Schuyler, Jr.
who was part of the WASP elite.
The then-Captain Schuyler writes on 1 March 1919:
He he, he said Jews were greasy. Well, in the vernacular he certainly thinks these Jews were "slippery" sorts ─ especially those like Trotsky who had been living in the United States. Trotsky even had an electric refrigerator in his New York flat in 1915, an incredibly extravagant luxury for the time.
On June 9th of the same year, Schuyler goes on to say:
Note that Schuyler uses the term "anti-Russian races" and seems to regard Jews racially, like Negroes or Chinese, or ethnically like Armenians ─ but not religiously like the Russian Orthodox. These "anti-Russian races" are at war with or in rebellion against the Russian old-regime.
Note also that these cosmopolitan Jews seem to be spreading their revolutionary wormwood without regard to borders. Jews, especially, have been ensconced in the United States to a large degree while they have been waiting for the "Sick Men of Europe" to fall under the stress placed upon these moribund regimes by the First World War.
I think also that a major reason why Bolshevism triumphed in Russia but not in Germany was because of the wormwood from the Old Believers, i.e., the Tsarist system itself and the backward Russian Orthodox Church.
It is common in White Nationalist circles today to think that all we need to do is "Fight the Joos" and to bring back that "olde tyme religion." I don't agree with this.
The Bolshevik Revolution had some modernistic elements to it that were long overdue, but this does not give them a "Mandate From Heaven," nor did they gain the popular support lost by the Old Regime for its legendary incompetence, which far predated the First World War.
Over a thousand simple folk were accidently trampled to death in 1896
when Nicholas II was coronated because the retinue for the new monarch was giving away some trifles like a commemorative porcelain cup and a slice of sausage. It took more than a thousand cuts like this to bring down the Tsar's regime which had its own secret police, the Okhrana
that the Bolsheviks had learned their own craft from.
But the Jewish Bolsheviks tended to be psychopaths that went out of their way to "throw out the baby with the bathwater."
The fact of the matter is Bolshevik rule was disastrous (until Stalin) and the anti-Tsar types who weren't Jews, foreigners, party members, or criminal psychopaths turned on the revolution really fast.
I think the Rt. Hon. Winston S. Churchill summed it up pretty well in 1920 with his famous article: Zionism vs. Bolshevism: a struggle for the soul of the Jewish people.
I also think that Churchill ultimately sold out his soul to mammon ─ but that's just silly old me.
In any case, Stalin embarked upon a totalitarian arms race against Germany by 1928, and the rest of the world scrambled to rescue the Soviet Union in World War II. After World War II, with the Cold War and the creation of Israel in 1948, Zionism and Jewish "Refuseniks" became an unwelcome bifurcation for Communism until the Soviet Union itself ground to a halt in 1991.
Even today, well-connected and prolific Neoconservative foreign policy wonks in the United States are Russophobes who love using the American military and economy to fight their "existential" racial conflicts. The word Neocon is almost synonymous with being a Jew.
Some of the older Neocons have made no secret that they were born and bred "red diaper babies," former Leftists who now affect Conservative manners and rhetoric because they see themselves as the real Establishment, and they are going to use that hard and soft power sitting on the Potomac.
Even the late Neocon "Godfather" Irving Kristol
was a former Trotskyite Communist. Trotskyite Communism has always been the most Jewish of all. Irving Kristol has a visage only slightly less gassable than Karl Radek
, who could have modeled for Der Giftpilz
So the bottom line is that I don't think we can dismiss Schuyler, Wilton, Churchill, or the other well-documented facts of Jewish involvement in the Red Scare in the United States and Bolshevism in Russia and on the Continent ─ but, yes, we do have to be careful about who we call "Jews" and what this even means.
The Jewish periodical Tablet
has an interesting short piece (below) which admits the facts of Jews in Bolshevism but then tries to hand-wave it all away in the same spirit as Leo Frank not being guilty of rape and murder because he was a Jew, or that because WASPs and White Russians were anti-Semitic, therefore (((Bolshevism))).
Recently, "Conservatard" Dennis Prager
was supposed to speak at Arizona State University, and immediately a spate of Marxist professors and Librarians denounced the event. While they professed to believe in the First Amendment, in quite Orwellian fashion, they were in favor of silencing Prager ─ literally calling him a "White Nationalist."
Well, Dennis Prager is hardly a White Nationalist. He doesn't come to the meetings. In reality, Dennis Prager is an ultra-Zionist Jew who while Conservative on some issues, literally believes that history should be vetted by the Anti-Defamation League. In a recent essay, Prager thinks that Holocaust Revisionists are the Devil incarnate and should be silenced ─ just as the Commies at the ASU Library think that Prager is a White Nationalist who should be silenced because they think he advocates for White people.
I think that the so-called Jewish Question is something that should be discussed lively, but also that we should not get too simplistic about it either. The semi-divine Tsar of all the Russias was probably quite Jew-aware himself ─ but that did not stop him from missing the forest for the trees.
