Stalin's Willing Executioners

Introductory note by Lasha Darkmoon

This 17,000-word book review by Kevin MacDonald of Yuri Slezkine’s The Jewish Century is published here in its entirety as an invaluable work of reference. Abridged versions of the same review exist elsewhere (see here and here), but neither of these do justice to the information-packed scholarly monograph that MacDonald was to write soon after the publication of Slezkine’s book in 2004.

Why is this review of such importance?

Because MacDonald was one of the first to highlight the fact that Slezkine’s bombshell of a book had, perhaps inadvertently, let the cat out of the bag: it had revealed many embarrassing facts about the Bolshevik Revolution that Slezkine’s fellow Jews might have preferred to see suppressed or given far less prominence; namely, that Jews had played a leading role in the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 and in the Red Terror that followed. They had made themselves Stalin’s “willing executioners” and been directly responsible for the mass murder of millions of white Russian Christians and the destruction of their churches.

All the horrors of Communism from 1917 to 1953—the collectivization of farms, the dispossession and indiscriminate slaughter of the very proletariat in whose name the Communists professed to rule, the slave labor of the gulags, the horrendous tortures practiced by the cheka, the starvation genocide of 7 million people  in Ukraine—all these unspeakable crimes would never have taken place without Jewish money and heavy Jewish participation.

Countless history books have been written about the Bolshevik Revolution and its aftermath, many of them by Jews, without the slightest hint being given that international Jewry was in large part to blame for the carnage. If anything, the Jews are presented in a rosy light and shown to be among the many victims of Stalin’s reign of terror. This enormous deception persists to this day.

MacDonald’s magisterial book review offers a valuable corrective to this deeply rooted misconception of the Jews as Eternal Victims. Read it, and learn from it the shocking truth: that Jews form a hostile elite — an elite that can be very dangerous indeed to the people among whom they live.

The grim history of  the Soviet Union in the time of Lenin and Stalin stands as a stark reminder, a cautionary tale, of what could befall the Americans one day in the not too distant future.

Stalin’s Willing Executioners:
Jews as a Hostile Elite in the USSR

by Kevin MacDonald


“When the Jews achieved power in Russia, it was as a hostile elite with a deep sense of historic grievance. As a result, they became willing executioners of both the people and cultures they came to rule.”

— Kevin MacDonald

This theme appears in a wide range of writings, from Henry Ford’s International Jew, to published statements by a long list of British, French, and American political figures in the 1920s (Winston Churchill, Woodrow Wilson, and David Lloyd George), and, in its most extreme form, by Adolf Hitler, who wrote:persistent theme among critics of Jews—particularly those on the pre-World War II right—has been that the Bolshevik revolution was a Jewish revolution and that the Soviet Union was dominated by Jews.

Now begins the last great revolution. By wresting political power for himself, the Jew casts off the few remaining shreds of disguise he still wears. The democratic plebeian Jew turns into the blood Jew and the tyrant of peoples. In a few years he will try to exterminate the national pillars of intelligence and, by robbing the peoples of their natural spiritual leadership, will make them ripe for the slavish lot of a permanent subjugation. The most terrible example of this is Russia.1

This long tradition stands in sharp contradiction to the official view, promulgated by Jewish organizations and almost all contemporary historians, that Jews played no special role in Bolshevism and indeed were specifically victimized by it. Yuri Slezkine’s book provides a much needed resolution to these opposing perspectives. It is an intellectual tour de force, alternately muddled and brilliant, courageous and apologetic.


634800025688527162One of the muddled elements, apparent at the beginning and present throughout The Jewish Century, is Slezkine’s claim that the peoples of the world can be classified into two groups. The successful peoples of the modern world, termed Mercurians, are urban, mobile, literate, articulate, and intellectually sophisticated.

Distinguished by their ability to manipulate symbols, they pursue “wealth for the sake of learning, learning for the sake of wealth, and both wealth and learning for their own sake” (p. 1). Since Slezkine sees Jews as the quintessential Mercurians, he regards modernization as essentially a process of everyone becoming Jewish. His second group, which he calls Apollonians, is rooted in the land and in traditional agrarian cultures, and prizes physical strength and warrior values.

Slezkine conceptualizes Mercurianism as a worldview, and therefore a matter of psychological choice, rather than as a set of psychological mechanisms, the most important of which is general intelligence.2 As a result of this false premise, he exaggerates the similarity among Mercurians, underestimates the power of ethnocentrism as a unifying factor in Jewish history, and fails to understand the roots of Western social and economic institutions.

Slezkine views Judaism as one of many Mercurian cultures—peoples that dwell alone in Diasporas, living among strangers and often acting as economic middlemen: the Overseas Chinese, Indians, and Lebanese, and the Gypsies and Irish Travelers. Their common denominator, in Slezkine’s view (and mine3), is their status as strangers to the people they live among—sojourners who, above all else, do not intermarry or socialize with the locals. Their interactions with the local Apollonians involve “mutual hostility, suspicion and contempt” (p. 20) and a sense of superiority. Moreover, a “common host stereotype of the Mercurians is that they are devious, acquisitive, greedy, crafty, pushy, and crude” (p. 23). The Mercurians possess greater kin solidarity and internal cohesion than the people they live among; they are characterized by extended families and patriarchal social organization.

So far, so good, although I would stress that the family organization of such groups derives more from the long-term adaptation to the culture areas they originate from than from an adaptation to the nomadic, middleman niche.4 But Slezkine maintains that Mercurians are above all smarter than the people they live among: They are said to possess “cunning intelligence,” but it is surely a mistake to consider such disparate groups as Jews (or the Overseas Chinese) and Gypsies (or the Irish Travelers) as having in common a particular set of intellectual traits. After all, the Jews, as Slezkine shows, have repeatedly become an academic, intellectual, cultural, and economic elite in Western societies, while Gypsies have tended toward illiteracy and are at best an economically marginal group.

Slezkine imagines that the Gypsies and literate middleman groups like the Jews or Overseas Chinese differ not in intelligence but only in whether they express their intelligence through literacy or an oral culture: “Businessmen, diplomats, doctors, and psychotherapists are literate peddlers, heralds, healers, and fortune-tellers” (p. 29)—a formulation that will not stand the test of current psychometric data. In fact, the general patterns of Gypsies are the opposite of Jews: a low-investment, low-IQ reproductive style characterized by higher fertility, earlier onset of sexual behavior and reproduction, more unstable pair bonds, higher rate of single parenting, shorter interval of birth spacing, higher infant mortality rate, and higher rate of survival of low birth weight infants.5 Intelligence, for Slezkine, is a lifestyle choice, rather than a set of brain processes underlying information processing and strongly influenced by genetic variation. As we shall see, this formulation is very useful to Slezkine as he constructs his argument later in the book.

In his attempt to paint with a very broad brush, Slezkine also ignores other real differences among the Mercurians, most notably, I would argue, the aggressiveness of the Jews compared to the relative passivity of the Overseas Chinese. Both the Jews and the Overseas Chinese are highly intel- ligent and entrepreneurial, but the Overseas Chinese have not formed a hostile cultural elite in Southeast Asian countries, where they have chiefly settled, and have not been concentrated in media ownership or in the construction of culture. We do not read of Chinese cultural movements disseminated in the major universities and media outlets that subject the traditional culture of Southeast Asians and anti-Chinese sentiment to radical critique, or of Chinese organizations campaigning for the removal of native cultural and religious symbols from public places.6 Slezkine paints Jews as deeply involved in the construction of culture and in the politics of the host societies, but the role of the Chinese was quite different. The following passage describing the political attitudes of the Overseas Chinese in Thailand could never have applied to Jews in Western societies since the Enlightenment:

But few seem to know or indeed to care about the restrictions on citizenship, nationality rights, and political activities in general, nor are these restrictions given much publicity in the Chinese press. This merely points up the fact, recognized by all observers, that the overseas Chinese are primarily concerned with making a living, or amassing a fortune, and thus take only a passive interest in the formal political life of the country in which they live.7

Moreover, Slezkine pictures the middlemen as specializing in “certain dangerous, marvelous, and distasteful” (p. 9), but nevertheless indispensable, pursuits (p. 36)—a formulation that carries a grain of truth, as in places where natives were prohibited from loaning money at interest. However, he ignores, or at least fails to spell out, the extent to which Jews have been willing agents of exploitative elites, not only in Western societies, but in the Muslim world as well.8 This is the overarching generalization which one can make about Jewish economic behavior over the ages. Their role went far beyond performing tasks deemed inappropriate for the natives for religious reasons; rather they were often tasks at which natives would be relatively less ruthless in exploiting their fellows. This was especially the case in Eastern Europe, where economic arrangements such as tax farming, estate management, and monopolies on retail liquor distribution lasted far longer than in the West:

In this way, the Jewish arendator became the master of life and death over the population of entire districts, and having nothing but a short- term and purely financial interest in the relationship, was faced with the irresistible temptation to pare his temporary subjects to the bone. On the noble estates he tended to put his relatives and co-religionists in charge of the flour-mill, the brewery, and in particular of the lord’s taverns where by custom the peasants were obliged to drink. On the church estates, he became the collector of all ecclesiastical dues, standing by the church door for his payment from tithe-payers, baptized infants, newly-weds, and mourners. On the [royal] estates…, he became in effect the Crown Agent, farming out the tolls, taxes, and courts, and adorning his oppressions with all the dignity of royal authority.9

Jewish involvement in the Communist elite of the USSR can be seen as a variation on an ancient theme in Jewish culture rather than a new one sprung from the special circumstances of the Bolshevik Revolution. Rather than being the willing agents of exploitative non-Jewish elites who were clearly separated from both the Jews and the people they ruled, Jews became an entrenched part of an exploitative and oppressive elite in which group boundaries were blurred. This blurring of boundaries was aided by four processes, all covered by Slezkine: shedding overt Jewish identities in favor of a veneer of international socialism in which Jewish identity and ethnic networking were relatively invisible; seeking lower-profile positions in order to de-emphasize Jewish preeminence (e.g., Trotsky); adopting Slavic names; and engaging in a limited amount of intermarriage with non-Jewish elites.10 Indeed, the “plethora of Jewish wives” among non-Jewish leaders11 doubtless heightened the Jewish atmosphere of the top levels of the Soviet government, given that everyone, especially Stalin, appears to have been quite conscious of ethnicity.12 For their part, anti-Semites have accused Jews of having “implanted those of their own category as wives and husbands for influential figures and officials.”13

By emphasizing the necessity and distastefulness of traditional Jewish occupations, Slezkine also ignores the extent to which Jewish competition suppressed the formation of a native middle class in Eastern Europe. (This has also occurred throughout Southeast Asia, because of competition from the Overseas Chinese.) Instead, Slezkine sees Eastern Europeans, through stereotypic lenses, as quintessential Apollonians, some of whom became Mercurian modernists when forced to by circumstances, rather than as containing elements that would have naturally aspired to and competently performed the economic and cultural functions that instead came to be performed by Jews because of their ability to create ethnic monopolies in goods and services. When Jews won the economic competition in early modern Poland, the result was that the great majority of Poles were reduced to the status of agricultural laborers supervised by Jewish estate managers in an economy in which trade, manufacturing, and artisanry were in large part controlled by Jews.14 On the other hand, in most of Western Europe Jews had been expelled in the Middle Ages. As a result, when modernization occurred, it was accomplished with an indigenous middle class. If, as in Eastern Europe, Jews had won the economic competition in most of these professions, there would not have been a non-Jewish middle class in England. Whatever one imagines might have been the fortunes and character of England with predominantly Jewish artisans, merchants, and manufacturers, it seems reasonable to suppose that the Christian taxpayers of England made a good investment in their own future when they agreed to pay King Edward I a massive tax of £116,346 in return for expelling two thousand Jews in 1290.15

While Slezkine’s treatment overemphasizes middlemen as a societal necessity rather than as ethnic outsiders competing for scarce resources, he does note that the rise of the Jews in the USSR came at the expense of the Germans as a Mercurian minority in Russia prior to the Revolution. (Jews were excluded from traditional Russia apart from the Pale of Settlement, which included Ukraine, Lithuania, Byelorussia, Crimea, and part of Poland.) Germans manned the imperial bureaucracy, formed a large percentage of professionals, entrepreneurs, and artisans, were more literate than the Russians, and had a sense of cultural superiority and ethnic solidarity:

And so they were, mutatis mutandis, head to the Russian heart, mind to the Russian soul, consciousness to Russian spontaneity. They stood for calculation, efficiency, and discipline; cleanliness, fastidiousness, and sobriety; pushiness, tactlessness, and energy; sentimentality, love of family, and unmanliness (or absurdly exaggerated manliness)…. Perhaps paradoxically, in light of what would happen in the twentieth century, Germans were, occupationally and conceptually, the Jews of ethnic Russia (as well as much of Eastern Europe). Or rather, the Russian Germans were to Russia what the German Jews were to Germany—only much more so. So fundamental were the German Mercurians to Russia’s view of itself that both their existence and their complete and abrupt disappearance have been routinely taken for granted (pp. 113–114).

Although the replacement of Germans by Jews was well under way by the time of the Bolshevik Revolution, a key consequence of the Revolution was the substitution of one Mercurian group, the Germans, by another, the Jews. The difference between the Jews and the Germans was that the Jews had a longstanding visceral antipathy, out of past historical grievances, both real and imagined, toward the people and culture they came to administer. Indeed, Russians on the nationalist right admired the Germans, at least up to World War I. For example, a statute of one nationalist organization, Michael the Archangel Russian People’s Union, expressed “particular trust in the German population of the Empire,”16 while its leader, Vladimir Purishkevich, accused the Jews of “irreconcilable hatred of Russia and everything Russian.”17 Jews disliked the Christian religion of the vast majority of Russians because of the antagonistic relationship between Judaism and Christianity over the ages; Jews distrusted the peasants, who “fell from grace” (p. 140) with the intelligentsia after the numerous anti-Jewish pogroms, especially after 1880; and Jews blamed the tsar for not doing enough to keep the peasants in check and for imposing the various quotas on Jewish advancement that went into place, also beginning in the 1880s—quotas that slowed down but by no means halted Jewish overrepresentation in the universities and the professions. In this respect, the Germans were far more like the Overseas Chinese, in that they became an elite without having an aggressively hostile attitude toward the people and culture they administered and dominated economically. Thus when Jews achieved power in Russia, it was as a hostile elite with a deep sense of historic grievance. As a result, they became willing executioners of both the people and cultures they came to rule, including the Germans.

After the Revolution, not only were the Germans replaced, but there was active suppression of any remnants of the older order and their descendants. Jews have always shown a tendency to rise because their natural proclivities (e.g., high intelligence) and powerful ethnic networking, but here they also benefited from “antibourgeois” quotas in educational institutions and other forms of discrimination against the middle class and aristocratic elements of the old regime that would have provided more competition with Jews. In a letter intercepted by the secret police, the father of a student wrote that his son and their friends were about to be purged from the university because of their class origins. “It is clear that only the Jerusalem academics and the Communist Party members generally are going to stay” (p. 243). The bourgeois elements from the previous regime, including the ethnic Germans, would have no future. Thus the mass murder of peasants and nationalists was combined with the systematic exclusion of the previously existing non-Jewish middle class. The wife of a Leningrad University professor noted, “in all the institutions, only workers and Israelites are admitted; the life of the intelligentsia is very hard” (p. 243). Even at the end of the 1930s, prior to the Russification that accompanied World War II, “the Russian Federation…was still doing penance for its imperial past while also serving as an example of an ethnicity-free society” (p. 276). While all other nationalities, including Jews, were allowed and encouraged to keep their ethnic identities, the revolution remained an anti-majoritarian movement.

Slezkine is aware of the biological reality of kinship and ethnicity, but he steadfastly pursues a cultural determinist model. He argues that biological models of ethnic nepotism are inappropriate because some nomadic groups are not kin groups but rather “quasi-families” like the Sicilian mafia (p. 35). But this is a distinction without a difference: Why are “natural” kinship groups significantly different from groups composed of families that band together? Each is characterized by internal cohesion and external strangeness, the traits Slezkine deems essential, but there are also kinship connections and a genetic divide between themselves and surrounding peoples. Cultural badges of group membership and a culturally generated ideology of kin-group membership are age-old ways of cementing kinship groups and setting up barriers that mark real biological differences—the evolved psychology described by modern research in social identity theory.18 And in any case, the demonstrable genetic differences between Slezkine’s prototypical Mercurians—the Jews, Gypsies, and Overseas Chinese—and the surrounding peoples cry out for a biological analysis.

Moreover, Slezkine underestimates the power of ethnocentrism as a unifying factor in Jewish history. This is most apparent in his discussion of Israel, which he describes as a radical departure from the Jewish tradition, because Israel is a quintessentially Apollonian society. Long after Western societies had rejected ethnic nationalism:

Israel continued to live in the European 1930s: only Israel still belonged to the eternally young, worshiped athleticism and inarticulateness, celebrated combat and secret police, promoted hiking and scouting, despised doubt and introspection, embodied the seamless unity of the chosen, and rejected most traits traditionally associated with Jewishness…. After two thousand years of living as Mercurians among Apollonians, Jews turned into the only Apollonians in a world of Mercurians (or rather, the only civilized Apollonians in a world of Mercurians and barbarians)” (pp. 327, 328).

But Israelis certainly did not reject traditional Jewish ethnocentrism and sense of peoplehood. Slezkine portrays Israelis as simply choosing to be ethnocentric nationalists, but ethnocentrism (like intelligence) is a biological system, not a lifestyle choice, and traditional Diaspora Jews were certainly deeply and intensely ethnocentric above all else.19 There can be little question that Israel and Zionism have been and are promoted and spearheaded by the most ethnocentric elements of the Jewish community.20

For Slezkine, as for so many Jews, the moral debt owed to Jews by Western societies justifies the most extreme expressions of Jewish racialism: “The rhetoric of ethnic homogeneity and ethnic deportations, tabooed elsewhere in the West, is a routine element of Israeli political life…. It is true that no other European nation is in a condition of permanent war; it is also true that no other European state can have as strong a claim on the West’s moral imagination” (pp. 364–365). Slezkine sees the moral taboo on European ethnocentrism, the creation of Nazism as the epitome of absolute evil, and the consecration of Jews as “the Chosen people of the postwar Western world” (p. 366) as simply the inevitable results of the events of World War II (pp. 365–366). In fact, however, the creation and maintenance of the culture of the Holocaust and the special moral claims of Jews and Israel are the result of Jewish ethnic activism. These claims have a specific historical trajectory, they are fueled by specific key events, and they are sustained by specific forces.21 For example, the Holocaust was not emphasized as a cultural icon until the late 1960s and early 1970s, when images of the Holocaust were deployed on a large scale in popular culture by Jewish activists specifically to rally support for Israel in the context of its wars of 1967 and 1973.

Similarly, Slezkine sees the United States as a Jewish promised land precisely because it is not defined tribally and “has no state-bearing natives” (p. 369). But the recasting of the United States as a “proposition nation” was importantly influenced by the triumph of several Jewish intellectual and political movements more than it was a natural and inevitable culmination of American history.22 These movements collectively delegitimized cultural currents of the early twentieth century whereby many Americans thought of themselves as members of a very successful ethnic group. For example, the immigration restrictionists of the 1920s unabashedly asserted the right of European-derived peoples to the land they had conquered and settled. Americans of northern European descent in the United States thought of themselves as part of a cultural and ethnic heritage extending backward in time to the founding of the country, and writers like Madison Grant (The Passing of the Great Race) and Lothrop Stoddard (The Rising Tide of Color against White World Supremacy) had a large public following. At that time both academia and mainstream culture believed in the reality of race; that there were important differences between the races, including in intelligence and moral character; and that races naturally competed for land and other resources.23

The assertion that Israel is the only civilized Apollonian society, despite its acknowledged racialism and open discussion of ethnic deportations, reveals Slezkine’s belief in Jewish moral and intellectual superiority.

Indeed, Slezkine regards both European individualism and the European nation-state as imitations of preexisting Jewish accomplishments: “Europeans imitated Jews not only in being modern [by becoming individualists interacting with strangers], but also in being ancient” [i.e., by developing ethnically based nation-states] (p. 44). So we read condescending passages such as “among the most successful [of the European Mercurians] were Max Weber’s Protestants, who discovered a humorless, dignified way to be Jewish” (p. 41). This act of intellectual gymnastics depends on the following analogy: Jews act as an ethnically based tribe within societies, seeing non-Jews as strangers; Europeans establish tribal nation-states while behaving as individualists within their societies (seeing other Europeans as strangers). The sweeping conclusion: Jews are the progenitors therefore of both aspects of modernity: economic individualism and the ethnically based nation-state. The Holocaust then occurred because the European nation-state, although an imitation of Judaism, failed somehow to be sufficiently Jewish: “In the hands of heavily armed, thoroughly bureaucratized, and imperfectly Judaized Apollonians, Mercurian exclusivity and fastidiousness became relentlessly expansive. In the hands of messianically inclined Apollonians, it turned lethal—especially to the Mercurians. The Holocaust had as much to do with tradition as it did with modernity” (p. 46).

But it is a huge stretch to argue from an analogy—and a loose one at that—to actual imitation and influence. (And one just doesn’t know what to say about his claim that Europeans perpetrated the Holocaust because they had become imperfect Jews.) Slezkine fails to provide any evidence that there is anything but a hazy and forced logical connection between European individualism and the Jewish role as a Diaspora people living among strangers. The reality is that by becoming individualists, Western Europeans returned to distinctive roots buried in their primeval past,24 whereas Judaism, because of its deep- seated tribalism, was widely regarded by Enlightenment intellectuals as an outmoded relic. Indeed, several Jewish commentators have noted that the post- Enlightenment forms of Judaism have essentially been responses to the corrosive effects of European civilization, with its emphasis on individualism and ethnic assimilation, on Judaism as an ethnically based collectivist group—what early Zionist Arthur Ruppin described as “the destructive influence of European civilization” on Judaism because of its tendency to break down group barriers and lead eventually to assimilation and intermarriage.25 Moreover, as Slezkine notes, Jews are not really individualists at all. Even in the modern world, the tribal approach of the Jews in economic enterprises employs ethnic kinship as a central component, whereas the individualistic approach of the Europeans sees this as illegitimate (p. 43). The bottom line is that it is ridiculous to claim that Jews are individualists because they treat outsiders as individuals while acknowledging that they retain a powerful ingroup consciousness and are masters of ethnic networking.

It is no stretch at all, however, to show that Jews have achieved a preeminent position in Europe and America, and Slezkine provides us with statistics of Jewish domination only dimly hinted at in the following examples from Europe in the late nineteenth century to the rise of National Socialism. Austria: All but one bank in fin de siècle Vienna was administered by Jews, and Jews constituted 70% of the stock exchange council; Hungary: between 50 and 90 percent of all industry was controlled by Jewish banking families, and 71% of the most wealthy taxpayers were Jews; Germany: Jews were overrepresented among the economic elite by a factor of 33. Similar massive overrepresentation was also to be found in educational attainment and among professionals (e.g., Jews constituted 62% of the lawyers in Vienna in 1900, 25% in Prussia in 1925, 34% in Poland, and 51% in Hungary). Indeed, “the universities, ‘free’ professions, salons, coffeehouses, concert halls, and art galleries in Berlin, Vienna, and Budapest became so heavily Jewish that liberalism and Jewishness became almost indistinguishable” (p. 63).

Slezkine documents the well-known fact that, as Moritz Goldstein famously noted in 1912, “We Jews administer the spiritual possessions of Germany.” However, he regards Jewish cultural dominance, not only in Germany but throughout Eastern Europe and Austria, as completely benign: “The secular Jews’ love of Goethe, Schiller, and the other Pushkins—as well as the various northern forests they represented—was sincere and tender” (p. 68). Their only sin was that their love of cultural icons transcended national and ethnic boundaries in an age of popular nationalism—for example, their promotion of German culture among the Czechs, Latvians, and Romanians. But this is far from the whole story. Jews were not simply lovers of Pushkin and Goethe. A major theme of anti-Jewish attitudes was that Jews were deeply involved in creating a “culture of critique”—that Jewish cultural influence was entirely negative and shattered the social bonds of the peoples they lived among. Slezkine cites Heinrich Heine as a prime example of a Jewish intellectual with sincere and tender love for German culture, but the Germans, from Wagner to von Treitschke to Chamberlain and Hitler, didn’t see it that way. For example, Heinrich von Treitschke, a prominent nineteenth-century German intellectual, complained of Heine’s “mocking German humiliation and disgrace following the Napoleonic wars” and Heine’s having “no sense of shame, loyalty, truthfulness, or reverence.”26 Nor does he mention von Treitschke’s comment that “what Jewish journalists write in mockery and satirical remarks against Christianity is downright revolting”; “about the shortcomings of the Germans [or] French, everybody could freely say the worst things; but if somebody dared to speak in just and moderate terms about some undeniable weakness of the Jewish character, he was immediately branded as a barbarian and religious persecutor by nearly all of the newspapers.”27 Such attitudes were prominent among anti-Jewish writers and activists, reaching a crescendo with the National Socialists in Germany.

Yet for Slezkine, if Jews did battle against various national cultures—and in the end, he acknowledges that they did—it was only because they realized that their Mercurian worldview was superior: “Did they really want to transform themselves into thick-skulled peasants now that the actual peasants had, for all practical purposes, admitted the error of their ways?” (p. 74). Jews were not recognized as legitimate curators of the national culture, but their lack of acceptance means only that they are truly modern: “Deprived of the comforts of their tribe and not allowed into the new ones created by their Apollonian neighbors, they became the only true moderns” (p. 75)—a statement that accepts at face value the idea that the secular Jews who had become the custodians and main producers of culture had ceased to have a Jewish identification. Slezkine fails to provide any evidence at all for this claim, and in fact there is overwhelming evidence that it is false.28

The main weapons Jews used against national cultures were two quintessentially modern ideologies, Marxism and Freudianism, “both [of which] countered nationalism’s quaint tribalism with a modern (scientific) path to wholeness” (p. 80). Slezkine correctly views both of these as Jewish ideologies functioning as organized religions, with sacred texts promising deliverance from earthly travail. While most of his book recounts the emergence of a Jewish elite under the banner of Marxism in the Soviet Union, his comments on psychoanalysis bear mentioning. Psychoanalysis “moved to the United States to reinforce democratic citizenship with a much-needed new prop…. In America, where nationwide tribal metaphors could not rely on theories of biological descent, Freudianism came in very handy indeed” by erecting the “Explicitly Therapeutic State” (pp. 79–80). The establishment of the Explicitly Therapeutic State was much aided by yet another Jewish intellectual movement, the Frankfurt School, which combined psychoanalysis and Marxism. The result was a culture of critique which fundamentally aimed not only at de-legitimizing the older American culture, but even attempted to alter or obliterate human nature itself: “The statistical connection between ‘the Jewish question’ and the hope for a new species of mankind seems fairly strong” (p. 90).

And when people don’t cooperate in becoming a new species, there’s always murder. Slezkine describes Walter Benjamin, an icon of the Frankfurt School and darling of the current crop of postmodern intellectuals, “with glasses on his nose, autumn in his soul and vicarious murder in his heart” (p. 216), a comment that illustrates the fine line between murder and cultural criticism, especially when engaged in by ethnic outsiders. Indeed, on another occasion, Benjamin stated, “Hatred and [the] spirit of sacrifice…are nourished by the image of enslaved ancestors rather than that of liberated grandchildren.”29 Although Slezkine downplays this aspect of Jewish motivation, Jews’ lachrymose perceptions of their history—their images of enslaved ancestors—were potent motivators of the hatred unleashed by the upheavals of the twentieth century.

Slezkine is entirely correct that Marxism, psychoanalysis, and the Frankfurt School were fundamentally Jewish intellectual movements. However, he fails to provide anything like a detailed account of how these ideologies served specifically Jewish interests, most generally in combating anti-Semitism and subverting ethnic identification among Europeans.30 Indeed, a major premise of his treatment is that Jewish radicals were not Jews at all.



†   Though not all these men were Jews (e.g., Felix Dzerzhinsky), all of them were either Jews, married to Jewesses or “Jewified non-Jews” (to use a phrase popularized by Albert Lindemann). Communism was good for Jews and Jews flourished under communism as if it had been tailor-made for them.  (LD)

†   “Jews perceived Communism as good for Jews, and indeed a major part of Slezkine’s book is to document that Communism was good for Jews … it held the promise of Jewish power and influence … outlawed anti-Semitism, and established Jewish cultural and economic institutions…. As Slezkine himself notes, Jews were the only group that was not criticized by the revolutionary movement, even though most Russians … had very negative attitudes toward Jews.”  —  Kevin MacDonald


Slezkine recounts the vast overrepresentation of Jews in the radical left in Europe and America. His attempts to explain this cover some familiar ground: Jewish intellectual opposition to the status quo resulting from their marginal social status (Thorsten Veblen); Jewish leftism as a secular, universalized form of traditional Jewish messianism and rationalism in which Jewish leftists are descendents of the Old Testament prophets calling for social justice (Lev Shternberg, dean of Soviet anthropologists); Jewish Communists as recreating traditional Jewish culture forms—especially scriptural interpretation and intense teacher-student relationships—in a Communist setting (historian Jaff Schatz). Slezkine’s own contribution is to argue that Jewish radicals were in revolt against their families, “rejecting the world of their fathers because it seemed to embody the connection between Judaism and antisocialism

(understood as commercialism, tribalism, and patriarchy)…the real reason for their common revulsion was the feeling that capitalism and Jewishness were one and the same thing” (pp. 96, 98). “Most Jewish rebels did not fight the state in order to become free Jews; they fought the state in order to become free of Jewishness—and thus Free” (p. 152).

This is a very useful theory, of course—useful because it denies that Jewish radicals were Jews at all, that in fact they were anti-Jews (if not anti-Semites—and there’s the rub). When Slezkine then goes on to recount the Jewish role as an elite in the most murderous regime in European history, we are led to believe that the only connection of those Jews with Jewishness is genealogical: Russian Jewish radicals, lovers of Pushkin and Tolstoy (as their counterparts in Poland, Hungary, and Germany loved Adam Mickiewicz, Sandór Petőfi, and Goethe), idealistically and selflessly set out to fashion a secular utopia of social justice by overcoming Apollonian backwardness even as they rejected their Jewish origins and all things Jewish.

His evidence for this is rather thin, but even in the examples Slezkine uses to illustrate his point it is clear that these Jewish radicals hated everything about their national cultures except for one or two literary figures. The rest would have to go. As Exhibit A, Slezkine presents Georg Lukács, the son of a prominent Jewish capitalist, who describes his profound discontent with his father’s way of life. But Lukács also expresses his hatred for “the whole of official Hungary”—how he extended his unhappiness with his father to “cover the whole of Magyar life, Magyar history, and Magyar literature indiscriminately (save for Petőfi)” (p. 97). Ah, yes. Save for Petőfi. All else—the people and the culture—would have to go, by mass murder if necessary. (Lazar Kaganovich, the most prolific Jewish mass murderer of the Stalinist era, is pictured at the end of his life reading Pushkin, Tolstoy, and Turgenev [pp. 97–98].) But rather than see this as an aspect of traditional Jewish hatred for non-Jews and their culture, souped up and rationalized with a veneer of Marxism, Slezkine explains these radicals as enlightened Mercurians who wished to destroy the old culture except for a few classics of modern literature. We may give thanks to know that Shakespeare would have survived the revolution.

Another of Slezkine’s examples is Lev Kopelev, a Soviet writer who witnessed and rationalized the Ukrainian famine as “historical necessity” (p. 230). Slezkine states categorically that Kopelev did not identify as a Jew, but his own material indicates the complexity of the matter. Kopelev identified himself on Soviet documents as “Jewish” but claimed that was only because he did not want to be seen as a “‘cowardly apostate,’ and—after World War II—because he did not want to renounce those who had been murdered for being Jewish” (p. 241). To the external world, Kopelev is a proud Jew, but to his close associates—in his “heart of hearts”— he is only a Communist and Soviet patriot. But of course many of his close associates were ethnic Jews, and he shed no tears for the Ukrainian and Russian peasants and nationalists who were murdered in the name of international socialism even as he mourned the loss of Jews murdered because they were Jews. By World War II he had become a “leading ideologue of Russian patriotism” (p. 279), developing “an acute sense of hurt and injustice on behalf of Russia, Russian history, and the Russian word” (p. 280) as he attempted to rally the Russians to do battle with the Germans. Russian patriotism had suddenly become useful—much as, I would argue, harnessing the patriotism and high regard for military service among Americans has been useful for Jewish neoconservatives eager to rearrange the politics of the Middle East in the interests of Israel. Ideology is a wonderfully effective instrument in the service of self-deception (or deception).

Probably more typical of the Jewish identity of the Bolsheviks is the account of Vitaly Rubin, a prominent philosopher and an ethnic Jew, who recounted his career at a top Moscow school in the 1930s where over half the students were Jewish:

Understandably, the Jewish question did not arise there. Not only did it not arise in the form of anti-Semitism, it did not arise at all. All the Jews knew themselves to be Jews but considered everything to do with Jewishness a thing of the past. I remember thinking of my father’s stories about his childhood, heder [Jewish elementary school], and traditional Jewish upbringing as something consigned to oblivion. None of that had anything to do with me. There was no active desire to renounce one’s Jewishness. The problem simply did not exist (pp. 253–254).

These Jews clearly have a Jewish identity but they have been removed from traditional Jewish religious cultural forms. In such a predominantly Jewish milieu, there was no need to renounce their Jewish identity and no need to push aggressively for Jewish interests because they had achieved elite status. And yet, just prior to World War II, as Russians started replacing Jews among the political elite and Nazism emerged as an officially anti-Jewish ideology, overt Jewish identity reemerged. Following World War II, Israel began exerting its gravitational pull on Jews, much to the chagrin of a suspicious Stalin. The visit of Golda Meir in 1948 and the outpouring of Jewish support for Zionism that it aroused was a watershed event for Soviet Jewry. Stalin reacted to it by initiating a campaign against public Jews and Yiddish culture.

It is interesting in this regard that the leading Soviet spokesmen on anti- Semitism were both ethnic Jews with non-Jewish sounding names, Emilian Yaroslavsky (Gubelman) and Yuri Larin (Lurie). Both refer to Jews in the third person (p. 245), as if they themselves were not Jews. But when Larin tried to explain the embarrassing fact that Jews were “preeminent, overabundant, dominant, and so on” (p. 251) among the elite in the Soviet Union, he mentioned the “unusually strong sense of solidarity and a predisposition toward mutual help and support” (p. 252)—ethnic networking by any other name.

Obviously, “mutual help and support” require that Jews recognize each other as Jews. Jewish identity may not have been much discussed, but it operated nonetheless, even if subconsciously, in the rarefied circles at the top of Soviet society. An example not presented by Slezkine is recounted in a report of 1950 to the central committee on Jewish activities at an aircraft production facility:

In a number of extremely important departments of the Central Aero- Hydrodynamic Institute there are workers due to be substituted for political reasons. They gather around themselves people of the same nationality, impose the habit of praising one another (while making others erroneously believe that they are indispensable), and force their protégés through to high posts.31

Indeed, there is no other way to explain the extraordinary percentages of Jews throughout elite institutions, which became apparent when the purges began in the late 1940s (see below). High IQ and achievement motivation can only go so far, and cannot explain why, for example, in the late 1940s Jews made up 80% of the Soviet Academy of Science Institute of Literature (Pushkin House) (p. 302), 42% of the directors of Moscow theaters, over half of Soviet circus directors (p. 301), or eight of the top ten directors of the Bolshoi Theater.32 In the case of Pushkin House, the opponents of the dominant clique stated that it had been forged “by long-lasting relationships of families and friends, mutual protection, homogeneous (Jewish) national composition, and anti-patriotic (anti-Russian) tendencies.”33

The reality is that Jewish identity always becomes more salient when Jews feel threatened or feel that their interests as Jews are at stake, but Jewish identity becomes submerged when Jewish interests coincide with other interests and identities.34 (This is a human universal and presumably accounts for the fact that the American Founding Fathers felt no need to carefully define the cultural and ethnic parameters of their creation; they assumed the racial and cultural homogeneity of the Republic35 and perceived no threat to its control by themselves and their descendants.) The relative submergence of Jewish identity within the Jewish milieu in elite circles of the Soviet Union during the 1920s and 1930s is a poor indicator of whether or not these people identified as Jews or would do so when in later years Jewish and Soviet identities began to diverge, when National Socialism reemphasized Jewish identity, or when Israel emerged as a beacon for Jewish identity and loyalty. A similar stance may be observed among present-day Jewish neoconservatives, who argue that the United States has a deep interest in democratizing the Middle East. The confluence of their interests as Jews in promoting the policies of the Israeli right wing and their construction of American interests allows them to submerge or even deny the relevance of their Jewish identity while posing as American patriots.36 But if Israeli and American policy began to diverge significantly, Jewish interests would almost certainly control their attitudes and behavior. Indeed, since neoconservative Zionism of the Likud Party variety is well known for promoting a confrontation between the U.S. and the entire Muslim world, their policy recommendations best fit a pattern of loyalty to their ethnic group, not to America.37In a previous work I advanced several reasons for supposing that Jews continued to identify as Jews in the USSR, none of which is challenged by Slezkine’s treatment: (1) Persons were classified as Jews depending on their ethnic background, at least partly because of residual anti-Jewish attitudes; this would tend to impose a Jewish identity on these individuals and make it difficult to assume an exclusive identity as a member of a larger, more inclusive political group. (2) Many Jewish Bolsheviks, such as those in Evsektsiya (the Jewish section of the Communist Party) and the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee, aggressively sought to establish a secular Jewish subculture; these phenomena are virtually ignored by Slezkine. (3) Very few Jews on the left envisioned a postrevolutionary society without a continuation of Judaism as a group; indeed, the predominant ideology among Jewish leftists was that post-revolutionary society would end anti-Semitism because it would end class conflict and the peculiar Jewish occupational profile. (4) The behavior of American Communists shows that Jewish identity and the primacy of Jewish interests over Communist interests were commonplace among individuals who were ethnically Jewish Communists. (5) The existence of Jewish crypsis in other times and places was combined with the possibility that self-deception, identificatory flexibility, and identificatory ambivalence are important components of Judaism as a group evolutionary strategy.38

And in the end, despite the rationalizations of many Soviet Jews and Slezkine on Jewish identity, it was blood that mattered. By the time of World War II, most Jews

knew that they were, in some sense, Jews. They may never have been to a synagogue, seen a menorah, heard Yiddish or Hebrew, tasted gefilte fish or indeed met their grandparents. But they knew they were Jews in the Soviet sense, which was also—in essence—the Nazi sense. They were Jews by blood (p. 286).

They reemerged as Jews to fight the Nazis and to solicit the support of American Jews to pressure their government to enter the war and provide aid to the Soviet Union. Jewish spokesmen visited New York proclaiming that “the Jewish people—‘ethnic’ or religious, Communist, Zionist, or traditionalist—were one family” (p. 290).

Moreover, Slezkine leaves out an enormous amount of evidence that conflicts with his Jewish radicalism-as-patricide thesis, evidence indicating that in general Jewish radicals did identify as Jews and acted to promote specific Jewish interests. Certainly Jewish radicals often rejected their fathers’ religion and their way of life, but all the evidence points to their identifying in different ways as Jews, not losing their Jewish identity to become de-ethnicized moral crusaders against capitalism. Slezkine uses Franz Boas to illustrate his patricide theory, because Boas was a radical Jew who recognized “the shackles of tradition” (p. 98). But he fails to note that Boas was hardly in rebellion against his own family. Boas was reared in a “Jewish-liberal” family in which the revolutionary ideals of 1848 remained influential,39 and there is ample evidence of his strong Jewish identification and concern with anti-Semitism.40

Besides a few individual cases like Lukács and Boas, the only general evidence that Slezkine provides for the patricide thesis comes from Jaff Schatz’s study of the generation of Jewish Communists who dominated the Communist movement in Poland beginning in the 1930s. But he provides a mangled account of Schatz’s work.41 These Jews did indeed reject their parents’ religion, but the result of their Yiddish upbringing was “a deep core of their identity, values, norms, and attitudes with which they entered the rebellious period of their youth and adulthood. This core was to be transformed in the processes of acculturation, secularization, and radicalization sometimes even to the point of explicit denial. However, it was through this deep layer that all later perceptions were filtered.”42 Most of these individuals spoke Yiddish in their daily lives and had only a poor command of Polish even after joining the party. They socialized entirely with other Jews whom they met in the Jewish world of work, neighborhood, and Jewish social and political organizations. After they became Communists, they dated and married among themselves, and their social gatherings were conducted in Yiddish. Their mentors and principal influences were other ethnic Jews, including especially Luxemburg and Trotsky, and when they recalled personal heroes, they were mostly Jews whose exploits achieved semimythical proportions.

In general, Jews who joined the Communist movement did not first reject their ethnic identity, and there were many who “cherished Jewish culture…[and] dreamed of a society in which Jews would be equal as Jews.”43 It was common for individuals to combine a strong Jewish identity with Marxism as well as various combinations of Zionism and Bundism (a movement of Jewish socialists). Moreover, the attraction of Polish Jews to Communism was greatly facilitated by their knowledge that Jews had attained high-level positions of power and influence in the Soviet Union and that the Soviet government had established a system of Jewish education and culture. In both the Soviet Union and Poland, Communism was seen as opposing anti-Semitism. In marked contrast, during the 1930s the Polish government enacted policies which excluded Jews from public-sector employment, established quotas on Jewish representation in universities and the professions, and organized boycotts of Jewish businesses and artisans.44 Clearly, Jews perceived Communism as good for Jews, and indeed a major contribution of Slezkine’s book is to document that Communism was good for Jews: It was a movement that never threatened Jewish group continuity, and it held the promise of Jewish power and influence and the end of state-sponsored anti-Semitism. And when this group achieved power in Poland after World War II, they liquidated the Polish nationalist movement, outlawed anti-Semitism, and established Jewish cultural and economic institutions.

Slezkine also fails to note that in the United States a strong Jewish identification was typical of Jewish radicals and that Jewish support for the left typically waxed and waned depending on specifically Jewish issues, particularly those related to anti-Semitism and support for Israel.45 The Jewish Old Left was a recognized part of the Jewish community, and American Jewish leftists during the 1960s were the only leftists who didn’t reject their parents—they really were “red diaper babies.”

It is also remarkable that the revolutionary movement in tsarist Russia ceased being anti-Jewish when Jews attained highly visible and prominent positions in the movement, even though workers and peasants participated in anti-Jewish pogroms from 1880 to 1905 and continued to harbor anti-Jewish attitudes. As Slezkine himself notes, Jews were the only group that was not criticized by the revolutionary movement (p. 157), even though most Russians, and especially the lower classes whose cause they were supposedly championing, had very negative attitudes toward Jews.46 When, in 1915, Maxim Gorky, a strong philosemite, published a survey of Russian attitudes toward Jews, the most common response was typified by the comment that “the congenital, cruel, and consistent egoism of the Jews is everywhere victorious over the good-natured, uncultured, trusting Russian peasant or merchant” (p. 159). There were concerns that all of Russia would pass into Jewish hands and that Russians would become slaves of the Jews. In the end, as Slezkine shows, as a result of the Revolution this prediction was not far off the mark. But in any case, one would think that if radical Jews had ceased being Jews, they would have been severely critical of the Jewish role in the pre-Soviet economy.

The other huge lacuna in Slezkine’s presentation is that he portrays Jewish radicals as typically the offspring of successful Jewish capitalists—like Georg Lukács—who scorn their fathers and wish for nothing more than to destroy Judaism in order to achieve personal freedom and make the world safe for humanity: “Marxism attributed [Jewish patricide] to the proletariat and urged the killing (more or less metaphorical) of the bad fathers, so as to emancipate the world from Judaism and make sure that no sons would have to kill their fathers ever again” (p. 100). Because he wishes to portray Jews as quintessentially modern Mercurians, Slezkine repeatedly shows how Jews dominated the economy, the universities, and the culture of Eastern Europe—indeed, his book is probably the best, most up-to-date account of Jewish economic and cultural preeminence in Europe (and America) that we have. But that is far from the whole story. A prime force resulting in Jewish radicalism was the grinding poverty of most Jews in Eastern Europe. Jews had overshot their economic niche: The economy was unable to support the burgeoning Jewish population in the sorts of positions that Jews had traditionally filled, with the result that a large percentage of the Jewish population became mired in poverty (along with much higher percentages of the non-Jewish population). The result was a cauldron of ethnic hostility, with governmental restrictions on Jewish economic activity and representation in educational institutions, rampant anti-Jewish attitudes, and increasing Jewish desperation.47

The main Jewish response to this situation was an upsurge of fundamentalist extremism that coalesced in the Hasidic movement and, later in the nineteenth century, in political radicalism and Zionism as solutions to Jewish problems. Slezkine devotes one line to the fact that Jewish populations in Eastern Europe had the highest rate of natural increase of any European population in the nineteenth century (p. 115), but this was an extremely important part of Eastern Europe’s “Jewish problem.” Anti-Semitism and the exploding Jewish population, combined with economic adversity, were of critical importance for producing the great numbers of disaffected Jews who dreamed of deliverance in various messianic movements—the ethnocentric mysticism of the Kabbala and Hasidism, Zionism, or the dream of a Marxist political revolution. Jews emigrated in droves from Eastern Europe but the problems remained. And in the case of the Marxists, the main deliverance was to be achieved not by killing Judaism, as Slezkine suggests, but by the destruction of the traditional societies of Eastern Europe as a panacea for Jewish poverty and for anti-Semitism.

In fact, the vast majority of Jews in Eastern Europe in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries were hardly the modern Mercurians that Slezkine portrays them as being. Slezkine does note that well into the twentieth century the vast majority of Eastern European Jews could not speak the languages of the non-Jews living around them, and he does a good job of showing their intense ingroup feeling and their attitudes that non-Jews were less than human.48 But he ignores their medieval outlook on life, their obsession with the Kabbala (the writings of Jewish mystics), their superstition and anti-rationalism, and their belief in “magical remedies, amulets, exorcisms, demonic possession (dybbuks), ghosts, devils, and teasing, mischievous genies.”49 These supposedly modern Mercurians had an attitude of absolute faith in the person of the tsadik, their rebbe, who was a charismatic figure seen by his followers literally as the personification of God in the world. (Attraction to charismatic leaders is a fundamental feature of Jewish social organization—apparent as much among religious fundamentalists as among Jewish political radicals or elite Jewish intellectuals.)50

In a private email to me, Mark Weber confirmed the 20 million figure, but drew my attention to a footnote in one of his essays:

“Russian professor Igor Bestuzhev-Lada, writing in a 1988 issue of the Moscow weekly Nedelya, suggested that during the Stalin era alone (1935-1953), as many as 50 million people were killed, condemned to camps from which they never emerged, or lost their lives as a direct result of the brutal “dekulakization” campaign against the peasantry. “Soviets admit Stalin killed 50 million,” The Sunday Times, London, April 17, 1988.

In his introduction to the 800-page compendium “The Black Book of Communism“, published in 1999 by Harvard University Press, editor Stéphane Courtois states that “Communist regimes turned mass crime into a full-blown system of government.” He calculates a total death toll of 94 million, with two countries claiming a total of 85 million between them: 20 million in the Soviet Union and 65 million in Communist China. The remaining 9 million victims of Communism came from Cambodia, Vietnam, North Korea, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Eastern Europe and Cuba. (See here)


Slezkine’s main contribution is to summarize previously available data and to extend our understanding of Jewish dominance of the revolutionary movements before 1917, and of Soviet society thereafter. (Oddly, he makes only a passing reference to Albert Lindemann’s important Esau’s Tears, which makes many of the same points.) Not only were Jews vastly overrepresented among revolutionaries, they “were particularly well represented at the top, among theoreticians, journalists, and leaders” (p. 155). Radical Jews, like other Jews, were very talented, highly intelligent, hardworking, and in addition dedicated to creating effective ethnic networks.51 These traits propelled them to the top of radical organizations and made the organizations themselves more effective.

But if Jews dominated radical and revolutionary organizations, they were immeasurably aided by philosemites like Gorky who, in Albert Lindemann’s term, were “jewified non-Jews”—“a term, freed of its ugly connotations, [that] might be used to underline an often overlooked point: Even in Russia there were some non-Jews, whether Bolsheviks or not, who respected Jews, praised them abundantly, imitated them, cared about their welfare, and established intimate friendships or romantic liaisons with them.”52 (As noted above, many of the non-Jewish elite in the USSR had Jewish wives.) What united the Jews and philosemites was their hatred for what Lenin (who had a Jewish grandfather) called “the thick-skulled, boorish, inert, and bearishly savage Russian or Ukrainian peasant”—the same peasant Gorky described as “savage, somnolent, and glued to his pile of manure” (p. 163). It was attitudes like these that created the climate that justified the slaughter of many millions of peasants under the new regime. Philosemites continued to be common among the non-Jewish elite in the USSR, even in the 1950s, when Jews began to be targeted as Jews. One such philosemite was Pavel Sudoplatov, a Slav married to a Jew and with many Jewish friends, who was a high-ranking secret police official with a great deal of blood on his hands. The only murder he unequivocally condemned in his memoirs was that of Paul Mikhoels, a Jewish ethnic activist associated with the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee.

Figures like Gorky and Sudoplatov were critical to the success of Jews in the Soviet Union. This is a general principle of Jewish political activity in a Diaspora situation: Because Jews tend to constitute a tiny percentage of a society, they need to make alliances with non-Jews whose perceived interests dovetail with theirs. Non-Jews have a variety of reasons for being associated with Jewish interests, including career advancement, close personal relationships or admiration for individual Jews, and deeply held personal convictions.53

Gorky’s love for the Jews—what Slezkine terms “the bitter, ardent, and hopeless love of self-described Apollonians for beautiful Mercurians” (p. 165)—was boundless. Gorky saw Jews as possessors of “heroic” idealism, “all-probing, all-scrutinizing”; “this idealism, which expresses itself in their tireless striving to remake the world according to new principles of equality and justice, is the main, and possibly the only, reason for the hostility toward Jews” (quoted on p. 164).

Despite the important role of Jews among the Bolsheviks, most Jews were not Bolsheviks before the revolution. However, Jews were prominent among the Bolsheviks, and once the revolution was under way, the vast majority of Russian Jews became sympathizers and active participants. Jews were particularly visible in the cities and as leaders in the army and in the revolutionary councils and committees. For example, there were 23 Jews among the 62 Bolsheviks in the All-Russian Central Executive Committee elected at the Second Congress of Soviets in October, 1917. Jews were the leaders of the movement, and to a great extent they were its public face. Slezkine quotes historian Mikhail Beizer who notes, commenting on the situation in Leningrad, that “Jewish names were constantly popping up in newspapers. Jews spoke relatively more often than others at rallies, conferences, and meetings of all kinds.”54 In general, Jews were deployed in supervisory positions rather than positions that placed them in physical danger. In a Politburo meeting of April 18, 1919, Trotsky urged that Jews be redeployed because there were relatively few Jews in frontline combat units, while Jews constituted a “vast percentage” of the Cheka at the front and in the Executive Committees at the front and at the rear. This pattern had caused “chauvinist agitation” in the Red Army (p. 187).

Jewish representation at the top levels of the Cheka and OGPU (the acronyms by which the secret police was known in different periods) has often been the focus of those stressing Jewish involvement in the revolution and its aftermath. Slezkine provides statistics on Jewish overrepresentation in these organizations, especially in supervisory roles, and agrees with Leonard Schapiro’s comment that “anyone who had the misfortune to fall into the hands of the Cheka stood a very good chance of finding himself confronted with and possibly shot by a Jewish investigator” (p. 177). During the 1930s the secret police, then known as the NKVD, “was one of the most Jewish of all Soviet institutions” (p. 254), with 42 of its 111 top officials being Jewish. At this time 12 of the 20 NKVD directorates were headed by ethnic Jews, including those in charge of state security, police, labor camps, and resettlement (i.e., deportation). The Gulag was headed by ethnic Jews from its beginning in 1930 until the end of 1938, a period that encompasses the worst excesses of the Great Terror. They were, in Slezkine’s words, “Stalin’s willing executioners” (p. 103).

The Bolsheviks continued to apologize for Jewish overrepresentation until the topic became taboo in the 1930s. And it was not until the late 1930s that there was a rise in visibility and assertiveness of “anti-Semites, ethnic nationalists, and advocates of proportional representation” (p. 188). By this time the worst of the slaughters in the Gulag, the purges, and the contrived famines had been completed.

The prominence of Jews in the Revolution and its aftermath was not lost on participants on both sides, including influential figures such as Winston Churchill, who wrote that the role of Jews in the revolution “is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others.”55 Slezkine highlights similar comments in a book published in 1927 by V. V. Shulgin, a Russian nationalist, who experienced firsthand the murderous acts of the Bolsheviks in his native Kiev in 1919: “We do not like the fact that this whole terrible thing was done on the Russian back and that it has cost us unutterable losses. We do not like the fact that you, Jews, a relatively small group within the Russian population, participated in this vile deed out of all proportion to your numbers” (p. 181; italics in original). Slezkine does not disagree with this assessment, but argues that Jews were hardly the only revolutionaries (p. 180). This is certainly true, but does not affect my argument that Jewish involvement was a necessary condition, not merely a sufficient condition, for the success of the Bolshevik Revolution and its aftermath.56 Slezkine’s argument clearly supports the Jews-as-necessary-condition claim, especially because of his emphasis on the leadership role of Jews.

However, the claim that Jewish involvement was a necessary condition is itself an understatement because, as Shulgin noted, the effectiveness of Jewish revolutionaries was far out of proportion to the number of Jews. A claim that a group constituting a large proportion of the population was necessary to the success of a movement would be unexceptional. But the critical importance of Jews occurred even though Jews constituted less than 5% of the Russian population around the time of the Revolution, and they were much less represented in the major urban areas of Moscow and Leningrad prior to the Revolution because they were prevented from living there by the Pale of Settlement laws.57 Slezkine is correct that Jews were not the only revolutionaries, but his point only underscores the importance of philosemitism and other alliances Jews typically must make in Diaspora situations in order to advance their perceived interests.

In 1923, several Jewish intellectuals published a collection of essays admitting the “bitter sin” of Jewish complicity in the crimes of the Revolution. In the words of a contributor, I. L. Bikerman, “it goes without saying that not all Jews are Bolsheviks and not all Bolsheviks are Jews, but what is equally obvious is that disproportionate and immeasurably fervent Jewish participation in the torment of half-dead Russia by the Bolsheviks” (p. 183). Many of the commentators on Jewish Bolsheviks noted the “transformation” of Jews: In the words of another Jewish commentator, G. A. Landau, “cruelty, sadism, and violence had seemed alien to a nation so far removed from physical activity.” And another Jewish commentator, Ia. A Bromberg, noted that:

the formerly oppressed lover of liberty had turned into a tyrant of “unheard-of-despotic arbitrariness”…. The convinced and unconditional opponent of the death penalty not just for political crimes but for the most heinous offenses, who could not, as it were, watch a chicken being killed, has been transformed outwardly into a leather-clad person with a revolver and, in fact, lost all human likeness (pp. 183–184).

This psychological “transformation” of Russian Jews was probably not all that surprising to the Russians themselves, given Gorky’s finding that Russians prior to the Revolution saw Jews as possessed of “cruel egoism” and that they were concerned about becoming slaves of the Jews. Gorky himself remained a philosemite to the end, despite the prominent Jewish role in the murder of approximately twenty million of his ethnic kin, 58 but after the Revolution he commented that “the reason for the current anti-Semitism in Russia is the tactlessness of the Jewish Bolsheviks. The Jewish Bolsheviks, not all of them but some irresponsible boys, are taking part in the defiling of the holy sites of the Russian people. They have turned churches into movie theaters and reading rooms without considering the feelings of the Russian people.” However, Gorky did not blame the Jews for this: “The fact that the Bolsheviks sent the Jews, the helpless and irresponsible Jewish youths, to do these things, does smack of provocation, of course. But the Jews should have refrained” (p. 186).

Those who carried out the mass murder and dispossession of the Russian peasants saw themselves, at least in their public pronouncements, as doing what was necessary in pursuit of the greater good. This was the official view not only of the Soviet Union, where Jews formed a dominant elite, but also was the “more or less official view” among Jewish intellectuals in the United States (p. 215) and elsewhere. (It is still far more common for leftist intellectuals to bemoan McCarthyism than the horrors of the USSR.59)

It is for the sake of creating a perfect human being—Apollonian in body and Mercurian in mind—that Levinson steels himself for doing what is “necessary,” including the requisitioning of a weeping farmer’s last pig and the killing of a wounded comrade too weak to be evacuated…. [T]he greater the personal responsibility for acts ordinarily considered evil, the more visible the signs of election and the inner strength they bespoke. Demonic as well as Promethean, Bolshevik commissars ‘carried within them’ the pain of historical necessity” (p. 194).

Levinson, a character in A. Fedeev’s The Rout (1926), a prominent example of socialist realism in the early Soviet period, is not ideologically Jewish, “but there is little doubt that for reasons of both aesthetic and sociological verisimilitude, canonical Jewishness seemed an appropriate expression of the Bolshevik vision of disembodied consciousness triumphing over [peasant] inertia” (p. 193). So it is not surprising that Gorky’s mild rebuke of Jewish anti-Christian zealotry was too much for Esther Frumkina, a leader of the Party’s Jewish section. Frumkina accused Gorky of attacking “Jewish Communists for their selfless struggle against darkness and fanaticism” (p. 187). In their self-perceptions, Jews are selflessly altruistic even when acting out ancient hatreds.



“Slezkine sees post-World War II America as a Jewish Utopia.”

—  Kevin MacDonald

Slezkine’s last and longest chapter describes the three great Jewish migrations of the twentieth century—to Israel, to America, and to the urban centers of the Soviet Union. Slezkine perceives all three through the lens of heroic Jewish self-perception. He sees the United States as a Jewish utopia precisely because it had only a “vestigial establishment tribalism” (p. 209) that could not long inhibit Jewish ascendancy: “The United States stood for unabashed Mercurianism, nontribal statehood, and the supreme sovereignty of capitalism and professionalism. It was—rhetorically—a collection if homines rationalistici artificiales, a nation of strangers held together by a common celebration of separateness (individualism) and rootlessness (immigration)” (p. 207). It was the only modern state…in which a Jew could be an equal citizen and a Jew at the same time. ‘America’ offered full membership without complete assimilation. Indeed, it seemed to require an affiliation with a subnational community as a condition of full membership in the political nation” (p. 207).

Slezkine sees post-World War II America as a Jewish utopia but seems only dimly aware that Jews to a great extent created their own utopia in the U.S. by undermining nativist sentiments that were common at least until after World War II. Slezkine emphasizes the Jewish role in institutionalizing the therapeutic state, but sees it as completely benign, rather than an aspect of the “culture of critique” that undermined the ethnic identities of white Americans: “By bringing Freudianism to America and by adopting it, briefly, as a salvation religion, [Jews] made themselves more American while making America more therapeutic” (p. 319). There is little discussion of the main anti-nativist intellectual movements, all of which were dominated by ethnically conscious Jews: Boasian anthropology, Horace Kallen and the development of the theory of America as a “proposition nation,” and the Frankfurt School which combined psychoanalysis and Marxism into a devastating weapon against the ethnic consciousness of white Americans. Nor does he discuss the role of Jewish activist organizations in altering the ethnic balance of the United States by promoting large-scale immigration from around the world.

Slezkine also views the Jewish migration to Israel as heroic: “In both Jewish Palestine (the Yishuv) and Soviet Russia, brotherhood stood for the full identity of all true believers (always the few against the many) and their complete identification with the cause (ardently desired and genuinely felt by most young Jews in both places). Eventually, both revolutions evolved in the direction of greater hierarchy, institutionalized militarism, intense anxiety about aliens, and the cult of generals, boy soldiers, and elite forces, but between 1917 and the mid-1930s they were overflowing with youthful energy and the spirit of fraternal effort, and self-sacrifice” (p. 212).

The passage is remarkable both for its pinpointing the ingroup/outgroup nature of the psychology of traditional Jewish groups, freed now of the Torah and the synagogue, and for its description of the ingroup psychology of mass murder (in the USSR) and ethnic cleansing (in the Middle East) as involving valiant self-sacrifice and pride in accomplishment.

But Slezkine spends most of his energy by far in providing a fascinating chronicle of the Jewish rise to elite status in all areas of Soviet society—culture, the universities, professional occupations, the media, and government. In all cases, Jewish overrepresentation was most apparent at the pinnacles of success and influence. To take just the area of culture, Jews were highly visible as avant-garde artists, formalist theorists, polemicists, moviemakers, and poets.

They were “among the most exuberant crusaders against ‘bourgeois’ habits during the Great Transformation; the most disciplined advocates of socialist realism during the ‘Great Retreat’ (from revolutionary internationalism); and the most passionate prophets of faith, hope, and combat during the Great Patriotic War against the Nazis” (p. 225). And, as their critics noticed, Jews were involved in anti-Christian propaganda. Mikhail Bulgakov, a Russian writer, noticed that the publishers of Godless magazine were Jews; he was “stunned” to find that Christ was portrayed as “a scoundrel and a cheat. It is not hard to see whose work it is. This crime is immeasurable” (p. 244).

Some of the juxtapositions are striking and seemingly intentional. On p. 230, Lev Kopelev is quoted on the need for firmness in confiscating the property of the Ukrainian peasants. Kopelev, who witnessed the famine that killed seven to ten million peasants, stated, “You mustn’t give in to debilitating pity. We are the agents of historical necessity. We are fulfilling our revolutionary duty. We are procuring grain for our socialist Fatherland. For the Five-Year Plan.” On the next page, Slezkine describes the life of the largely Jewish elite in Moscow and Leningrad, where they attended the theater, sent their children to the best schools, had peasant women for nannies, spent weekends at pleasant dachas, and vacationed at the Black Sea.

Slezkine describes the NKVD as “one of the most Jewish of all Soviet institutions” and recounts the Jewish leadership of the Great Terror of the 1930s (pp. 254 and 255). On p. 256, he writes that in 1937 the prototypical Jew who moved from the Pale of Settlement to Moscow to man elite positions in the Soviet state “probably would have been living in elite housing in downtown Moscow…with access to special stores, a house in the country (dacha), and a live-in peasant nanny or maid.…At least once a year, she would have traveled to a Black Sea sanatorium or a mineral spa in the Caucasus” (p. 256). Slezkine writes long and lovingly detailed sketches of life at the dachas of the elite—the “open verandas overlooking small gardens enclosed by picket fences or wildly overgrown yards” (p. 256), but the reader is left to his own imagination to visualize the horrors of the Ukrainian famine and the liquidation of the Kulaks.

As Slezkine notes, most of the Soviet elite were not Jews, but Jews were far overrepresented among the elite (and Russians far underrepresented as a percentage of the population). Moreover, the Jews formed a far more cohesive core than the rest of the elite because of their common social and cultural background (p. 236). The common understanding that the new elite had a very large Jewish representation resulted in pervasive anti-Jewish attitudes. In 1926, an Agitprop report noted “The sense that the Soviet regime patronizes the Jews, that it is ‘the Jewish government,’ that the Jews cause unemployment, housing shortages, college admissions problems, price rises, and commercial specula- tion—this sense is instilled in the workers by all the hostile elements.… If it does not encounter resistance, the wave of anti-Semitism threatens to become, in the very near future, a serious political question” (p. 244). Such widespread public perceptions about the role of Jews in the new government led to aggressive surveillance and repression of anti-Jewish attitudes and behavior, including the execution of Russian nationalists who expressed anti-Jewish attitudes. These public perceptions also motivated Jews to adopt a lower profile in the regime, as with Trotsky, who refused the post of commissar of internal affairs because it might lend further ammunition to the anti-Jewish arguments. From 1927 to 1932 Stalin established an ambitious public campaign to combat anti- Semitism that included fifty-six books published by the government and an onslaught of speeches, mass rallies, newspaper articles, and show trials “aimed at eradicating the evil” (p. 249).

Jews were able to maintain themselves as an elite until the end of the Soviet regime in 1991—this despite an official push for affirmative action–style programs to open up opportunities for the children of peasants and workers in the 1930s and to blunt the anti-Jewish feelings simmering at the lower levels of Soviet society. Jewish elite status persisted despite the Great Terror of the late 1930s, which disproportionately affected the political elite. On the whole, Jews were underrepresented as victims of the Great Terror. And although the Jewish percentage of the political elite did decline after the purges of the late 1930s and the promotion of former peasants and working class Russians, this did not affect Jewish predominance as a professional, cultural, and managerial elite. Jews also retained their elite status despite Stalin’s campaign in the late 1940s against Jewish ethnic and cultural institutions and their spokesmen.

Jewish elite status remained even after the purge was expanded to all sectors of the Soviet elite, due at least partly to “the widespread sense [among Russians] that the great victory [in World War II] entitled them to a greater role in decision making” (p. 306). Slezkine shows the very high percentages of Jews in various institutions in the late 1940s, including the universities, the media, the foreign service, and the secret police. For example, the deans of philosophers, historians, and legal scholars were ethnic Jews, and, as already noted, Jews constituted 80% of the Soviet Academy of Science Institute of Literature. As for the Jewish role as “vanguard of the working class,” Jews still made up 23% of the staff at the Trade Union Council’s publication Trud even after a purge that cut their numbers in half.

The campaign against the Jews began only after the apogee of mass murder and deportations in the USSR, and was much less lethal than those mounted against a long list of other ethnic groups, whose typical fate was deportation under the most brutal of circumstances (Cossacks, Chechens, Crimean Tatars, Volga Germans, Moldavians, Kalmyks, Karachai, Balkars, Ingush, Greeks, Bulgars, Crimean Armenians, Meskhetian Turks, Kurds, and Khemshins). The campaign against the Jews was also much less consistent and effective than the Soviet campaigns against the children of the former elite—the factory owners, the Cossack officers, and the middle classes and intelligentsia—had been (p. 308).

Unlike the purges of the 1930s that sometimes targeted Jews as member of the elite (albeit at far less than their percentage of the elite), the anti-Jewish actions of the late 1940s and early 1950s were targeted at Jews because of their ethnicity. Similar purges were performed throughout Soviet-controlled Eastern Europe (pp. 313–314). “All three regimes [Poland, Romania, Hungary] resembled the Soviet Union of the 1920s insofar as they combined the ruling core of the old Communist underground, which was heavily Jewish, with a large pool of upwardly mobile Jewish professionals, who were, on average, the most trustworthy among the educated and the most educated among the trustworthy” (p. 314). Speaking of the situation in Poland, Khrushchev supported the anti-Jewish purge with his remark that “you have already too many Abramoviches.”60

Whereas in the 1920s and 1930s children of the pillars of the old order were discriminated against, now Jews were not only being purged because of their vast overrepresentation among the elite, but were being discriminated against in university admissions. Jews, the formerly loyal members of the elite and willing executioners of the bloodiest regime in history, now “found them- selves among the aliens” (p. 310). Rather than rationalize their persecution as resulting from the iron laws of history, some Jews began to feel guilt for their former role. A Jewish woman writes that after her husband was arrested, her maid told her, “You are crying now, but you did not mind when my father was being dekulakized, martyred for no reason at all, and my whole family thrown out in the street” (p. 311).

And so began the exodus of Jews. Stalin died and the anti-Jewish campaign fizzled, but the Jewish trajectory was definitely downhill. Jews retained their elite status and occupational profile until the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, but “the special relationship between the Jews and the Soviet state had come to an end—or rather, the unique symbiosis in pursuit of world revolution had given way to a unique antagonism over two competing and incommensurate nationalisms” (p. 330). A response of the Russians was “massive affirmative action” (p. 333) aimed at giving greater representation to underrepresented ethnic groups. Jews were targets of suspicion because of their ethnic status, barred from some elite institutions, and limited in their opportunities for advancement.

The Russians were taking back their country, and it wasn’t long before Jews became leaders of the dissident movement and began to seek to emigrate in droves to the United States, Western Europe, and Israel. Despite still possessing elite social status and far fewer disabilities than many groups (e.g., the overwhelming majority of the Soviet population was not allowed to live in cities and some Christian sects were banned), Jews perceived their situation as “unrelieved humiliation” (p. 339). Overt anti-Semitism was encouraged by the more covert official variety apparent in the limits on Jewish advancement. Under these circumstances, Jews became “in many ways, the core of the antiregime intelligentsia” (p. 340). Jewish dissidents whose parents had run the Gulags, the deportations, and the state-sponsored famines, now led the “urgent call for social justice” (p. 342). Jewish academics with “cult followings” (p. 342)—a familiar Jewish pattern61—and close ties to Western Jewish intellectuals became the intellectual vanguard and iconoclasts of the new culture of critique in the Soviet Union.

Applications to leave the USSR increased dramatically after Israel’s Six-Day War of 1967, which, as in the United States and Eastern Europe, resulted in an upsurge of Jewish identification and ethnic pride. The floodgates were eventually opened by Gorbachev in the late 1980s, and by 1994, 1.2 million Soviet Jews had emigrated—43% of the total. By 2002, there were only 230,000 Jews left in the Russian Federation, 0.16% of the population. These remaining Jews nevertheless exhibit the typical Ashkenazi pattern of high achievement and overrepresentation among the elite, including six of the seven oligarchs who emerged in control of the Soviet economy and media in the period of de-nationalization (p. 362).

Perhaps unsurprisingly, this dénouement did not result in any sense of collective guilt among Soviet Jews (p. 345) or among their American apologists. Indeed, American Jewish media figures who were blacklisted because of Communist affiliations in the 1940s are now heroes, honored by the film industry, praised in newspapers, their work exhibited in museums.62 At the same time, the cause of Soviet Jews and their ability to emigrate became a critical rallying point for American Jewish activist organizations and a defining feature of neoconservatism as a Jewish intellectual and political movement. (For example, Richard Perle, a key neoconservative, was Senator Henry Jackson’s most important security advisor from 1969 to 1979 and organized Congressional support for the Jackson-Vanik Amendment linking U.S.-Soviet trade to the ability of Jews to emigrate from the Soviet Union. The bill was passed over strenuous opposition from the Nixon administration.) Jewish activist organizations and many Jewish historians portray the Soviet Jewish experience as a sojourn in the land of the “Red Pharaohs” (p. 360). The historical legacy is that Jews were the passive, uncomprehending victims of the White armies, the Nazis, the Ukrainian nationalists, and the postwar Soviet state, nothing more.



†   LASHA DARKMOON would like to draw the reader’s attention to this Zionist quote on the above Trotsky cartoon: “This anti-Bolshevik propaganda poster, dated to 1919, shows Leon Trotsky (born Lev Davidovich Bronstein) as a devil.  Elements of the imagery reveal anti-Semitism: a popular  anti-communist tactic was to overplay the role of Jews in the Russian Bolshevik Revolution.” (From a Zionist website, attempting to minimize the role played by Jews in the Bolshevik Revolution. See here).

“The Chinese soldiers, presiding here over a mound of corpses and shooting Russian Christians to death, were hired mercenaries for the Jewish Bolsheviks. They did the Jews’ dirty work for them. Their reputation for sadistic torture on behalf of their Bolshevik employers was legendary. Thus they were responsible for introducing into Europe the infamous “rat torture”, a variation of which was to appear later as the horrendous climax of  Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four.”  (Lasha Darkmoon, here)

†   “Although they [the Jews] did carry out the destruction of traditional Russia and approximately twenty million of its people, they did so [according to Slezkine] only out of the highest humanitarian motives and the dream of utopian socialism…. This is simply not plausible.”  —  Kevin MacDonald


Alexander Solzhenitsyn calls on Jews to accept moral responsibility for the Jews who “took part in the iron Bolshevik leadership and, even more so, in the ideological guidance of a huge country down a false path.…[and for the Jewish role in the] Cheka executions, the drowning of the barges with the condemned in the White and Caspian Seas, collectivization, the Ukrainian famine—in all the vile acts of the Soviet regime” (quoted on p. 360). But according to Slezkine, there can be no collective guilt because Soviet violence, unlike the Nazi persecution of the Jews, was not tribal violence. Violence of the Soviet sort has “no legitimate heirs—for either the victims or the perpetrators” (p. 345). Slezkine acknowledges that Jews were “the most enthusiastic ethnically defined supporters of the Soviet state” but he essentially argues that Jews were not really Jews when they were Communists, at least until World War II caused them to be conscious of their Jewish identities. After all, the legacy of Communism “was almost as strongly committed to cosmopolitanism as it was to mass violence” (p. 346).

Again we see the importance of Slezkine’s claims that Jewish Communists lacked a Jewish identity. However, as demonstrated above, there can be little doubt that Soviet Jews thought of themselves as Jews (although they certainly were not religious Jews) and that they worked together on the basis of shared Jewish ethnic identity. Nevertheless, the critical issue for collective guilt is whether the Jewish enthusiasm for the Soviet state and the enthusiastic participation of Jews in the violence against what Slezkine terms “rural backwardness and religion” (p. 346) had something to do with their Jewish identity.

This is a more difficult claim to establish, but the outlines of the argument are quite clear. Even granting the possibility that the revolutionary vanguard composed of Jews like Trotsky that spearheaded the Bolshevik Revolution was far more influenced by a universalist utopian vision than by their upbringing in traditional Judaism, it does not follow that this was the case for the millions of Jews who left the shtetl towns of the Pale of Settlement to migrate to Moscow and the urban centers of the new state. The migration of the Jews to the urban centers of the USSR is a critical aspect of Slezkine’s presentation, but it strains credulity to suppose that these migrants threw off, completely and immediately, all remnants of the Eastern European shtetl culture which, Slezkine acknowledges, had a deep sense of estrangement from non-Jewish culture, and in particular a fear and hatred of peasants resulting from the traditional economic relations between Jews and peasants and exacerbated by the long and recent history of anti-Jewish pogroms carried out by peasants. Traditional Jewish shtetl culture also had a very negative attitude toward Christianity, not only as the central cultural icon of the outgroup but as associated in their minds with a long history of anti-Jewish persecution. The same situation doubtless occurred in Poland, where the efforts of even the most “de-ethnicized” Jewish Communists to recruit Poles were inhibited by traditional Jewish attitudes of superiority toward and estrangement from traditional Polish culture.63

In other words, the war against “rural backwardness and religion” was exactly the sort of war that a traditional Jew would have supported wholeheartedly, because it was a war against everything they hated and thought of as oppressing them. Of course traditional shtetl Jews also hated the tsar and his government due to restrictions on Jews and because they did not think that the government did enough to rein in anti-Jewish violence. There can be little doubt that Lenin’s contempt for “the thick-skulled, boorish, inert, and bearishly savage Russian or Ukrainian peasant” was shared by the vast majority of shtetl Jews prior to the Revolution and after it. Those Jews who defiled the holy places of traditional Russian culture and published anti-Christian periodicals doubtless reveled in their tasks for entirely Jewish reasons, and, as Gorky worried, their activities not unreasonably stoked the anti-Semitism of the period. Given the anti-Christian attitudes of traditional shtetl Jews, it is very difficult to believe that the Jews engaged in campaigns against Christianity did not have a sense of revenge against the old culture that they held in such contempt.

Indeed, Slezkine reviews some of the works of early Soviet Jewish writers that illustrate the revenge theme. The amorous advances of the Jewish protagonist of Eduard Bagritsky’s poem “February” are rebuffed by a Russian girl, but their positions are changed after the Revolution when he becomes a deputy commissar. Seeing the girl in a brothel, he has sex with her without taking off his boots, his gun, or his trench coat—an act of aggression and revenge:

“I am taking you because so timid

Have I always been, and to take vengeance For the shame of my exiled forefathers And the twitter of an unknown fledgling!

I am taking you to wreak my vengeance On the world I could not get away from!”

Slezkine seems comfortable with revenge as a Jewish motive, but he does not consider traditional Jewish culture itself to be a contributor to Jewish attitudes toward traditional Russia, even though he notes that a very traditional part of Jewish culture was to despise the Russians and their culture. (Even the Jewish literati despised all of traditional Russian culture, apart from Pushkin and a few literary icons.) Indeed, one wonders what would motivate the Jewish commissars to revenge apart from motives related to their Jewish identity. Traditional hostility toward non-Jews and their culture forms a central theme in the writings of Israel Shahak and many mainstream Jewish historians, including Slezkine, and I have presented summaries of this material elsewhere.64 An important aspect of Slezkine’s general theoretical approach is that relationships between Mercurians and Apollonians involve mutual hostility, suspicion and contempt, and a sense of superiority (p. 20). These traditional attitudes were exacerbated by the increase in tensions between Jews and non-Jews beginning with the pogroms of 1881 and extending, with fits and starts, into the period of the Bolshevik Revolution.

Slezkine’s argument that Jews were critically involved in destroying traditional Russian institutions, liquidating Russian nationalists, murdering the tsar and his family, dispossessing and murdering the kulaks, and destroying the Orthodox Church has been made by many other writers over the years, including Igor Shafarevich, a mathematician and member of the prestigious US. National Academy of Sciences (NAS). Shafarevich’s review of Jewish literary works during the Soviet and post-Soviet period agrees with Slezkine in showing Jewish hatred mixed with a powerful desire for revenge toward pre-revolutionary Russia and its culture.65 But Shafarevich also suggests that the Jewish “Russophobia” that prompted the mass murder is not a unique phenomenon, but results from traditional Jewish hostility toward the non-Jewish world, considered tref (unclean), and toward non-Jews themselves, considered sub-human and as worthy of destruction. Both Shafarevich and Slezkine review the traditional animosity of Jews toward Russia, but Slezkine attempts to get his readers to believe that shtetl Jews were magically transformed in the instant of Revolution; although they did carry out the destruction of traditional Russia and approximately twenty million of its people, they did so only out of the highest humanitarian motives and the dream of utopian socialism, only to return to an overt Jewish identity because of the pressures of World War II, the rise of Israel as a source of Jewish identity and pride, and anti-Jewish policies and attitudes in the USSR. This is simply not plausible.

The situation prompts reflection on what might have happened in the United States had American Communists and their sympathizers assumed power. The “red diaper babies” came from Jewish families which “around the breakfast table, day after day, in Scarsdale, Newton, Great Neck, and Beverly Hills have discussed what an awful, corrupt, immoral, undemocratic, racist society the United States is.”66 Indeed, hatred toward the peoples and cultures of non-Jews and the image of enslaved ancestors as victims of anti-Semitism have been the Jewish norm throughout history—much commented on, from Tacitus to the present.67

It is easy to imagine which sectors of American society would have been deemed overly backward and religious and therefore worthy of mass murder by the American counterparts of the Jewish elite in the Soviet Union—the ones who journeyed to Ellis Island instead of Moscow. The descendants of these overly backward and religious people now loom large among the “red state” voters who have been so important in recent national elections. Jewish animosity toward the Christian culture that is so deeply ingrained in much of America is legendary. As Joel Kotkin points out, “for generations, [American] Jews have viewed religious conservatives with a combination of fear and disdain.”68 And as Elliott Abrams notes, the American Jewish community “clings to what is at bottom a dark vision of America, as a land permeated with anti-Semitism and always on the verge of anti-Semitic outbursts.”69 These attitudes are well captured in Steven Steinlight’s charge that the Americans who approved the immigration restriction legislation of the 1920s—the vast majority of the population—were a “thoughtless mob” and that the legislation itself was “evil, xenophobic, anti-Semitic,” “vilely discriminatory,” a “vast moral failure,” a “monstrous policy.”70 In the end, the dark view of traditional Slavs and their culture that facilitated the participation of so many Eastern European shtetl Jews in becoming willing executioners in the name of international socialism is not very different from the views of contemporary American Jews about a majority of their fellow countrymen.

There is a certain enormity in all this. The twentieth century was indeed the Jewish century because Jews and Jewish organizations were intimately and decisively involved in its most important events. Slezkine’s greatest accomplishment is to set the historical record straight on the importance of Jews in the Bolshevik Revolution and its aftermath, but he doesn’t focus on the huge repercussions of the Revolution, repercussions that continue to shape the world of the twenty-first century. In fact, for long after the Revolution, conservatives throughout Europe and the United States believed that Jews were responsible for Communism and for the Bolshevik Revolution.71 The Jewish role in leftist political movements was a common source of anti-Jewish attitudes among a great many intellectuals and political figures. In Germany, the identification of Jews and Bolshevism was widespread in the middle classes and was a critical part of the National Socialist view of the world. As historian Ernst Nolte has noted, for middle-class Germans, “the experience of the Bolshevik revolution in Germany was so immediate, so close to home, and so disquieting, and statistics seemed to prove the overwhelming participation of Jewish ringleaders so irrefutably,” that even many liberals believed in Jewish responsibility.72 Jewish involvement in the horrors of Communism was also an important sentiment in Hitler’s desire to destroy the USSR and in the anti-Jewish actions of the German National Socialist government. Jews and Jewish organizations were also important forces in inducing the Western democracies to side with Stalin rather than Hitler in World War II.

The victory over National Socialism set the stage for the tremendous increase in Jewish power in the post-World War II Western world, in the end more than compensating for the decline of Jews in the Soviet Union. As Slezkine shows, the children of Jewish immigrants assumed an elite position in the United States, just as they had in the Soviet Union and throughout Eastern Europe and Germany prior to World War II. This new-found power facilitated the establishment of Israel, the transformation of the United States and other Western nations in the direction of multiracial, multicultural societies via large-scale non-white immigration, and the consequent decline in European demographic and cultural preeminence. 73 The critical Jewish role in Communism has been sanitized, while Jewish victimization by the Nazis has achieved the status of a moral touchstone and is a prime weapon in the push for massive non-European immigration, multiculturalism, and advancing other Jewish causes.

The Jewish involvement in Bolshevism has therefore had an enormous effect on recent European and American history. It is certainly true that Jews would have attained elite status in the United States with or without their prominence in the Soviet Union. However, without the Soviet Union as a shining beacon of a land freed of official anti-Semitism where Jews had attained elite status in a stunningly short period, the history of the United States would have been very different. The persistence of Jewish radicalism influenced the general political sensibility of the Jewish community and had a destabilizing effect on American society, ranging from the paranoia of the McCarthy era, to the triumph of the 1960s countercultural revolution, to the conflicts over immigration and multiculturalism that are so much a part of the contemporary political landscape.74

It is Slezkine’s chief contention that the history of the twentieth century was a history of the rise of the Jews in the West, in the Middle East, and in Russia, and ultimately their decline in Russia. I think he is absolutely right about this. If there is any lesson to be learned, it is that Jews not only became an elite in all these areas, they became a hostile elite—hostile to traditional peoples and cultures of all three areas they came to dominate. Until now, the greatest human tragedies have occurred in the Soviet Union, but Israel’s record as an oppressive and expansive occupying power in the Middle East has made it a pariah among the vast majority of the governments of the world. And Jewish hostility toward the European- derived people and culture of the United States has been a consistent feature of Jewish political behavior and attitudes throughout the twentieth century. In the present, this normative Jewish hostility toward the traditional population and culture of the United States remains a potent motivator of Jewish involvement in the transformation of the U.S. into a non-European society.75

Given this record of Jews as a hostile but very successful elite, I doubt that the continued demographic and cultural dominance of Western European peoples will be retained either in Europe or the United States and other Western societies without a decline in Jewish influence. (Perhaps more obviously, the same might be said vis-à-vis the Palestinians and other Arab peoples in the Middle East.) The lesson of the Soviet Union (and Spain from the fifteenth to seventeenth centuries) is that Jewish influence does wax and wane. Unlike the attitudes of the utopian ideologies of the twentieth century, there is no end to history.

LASHA DARKMOON (final note):

Dozens of further quotations could be provided, apart from those already given here,  proving beyond any shadow of doubt that the Communist Revolution that claimed a total of 94 millions lives (Stéphane Courtois,The Black Book of Communism, 1999) was a Jewish revolution in which Jews played a predominant role; for even in Communist China, which claimed 65 million lives, Jews were to be found in top advisory roles in the Chinese government. In addition, it was Rothschild money that helped to finance Chinese Communism:


LD:  We will cap this essay with a quotation by acclaimed  Jewish writer Norman Cantor. He not only admits here that Jews were behind all the carnage in the Soviet Union in the first half of the 20th century, he actually boasts about it.

The Jews, he tells us, have “nothing to be ashamed of.” This is how the Jews got their “revenge”; it was their way of “striking back” at their historical oppressors:

“The Bolshevik Revolution and some of its aftermath represented, from one perspective, Jewish revenge. During the heyday of the Cold War, American Jewish publicists spent a lot of time denying that Jews played a disproportionately important role in Soviet and world Communism. The truth is until the early 1950s Jews did play such a role, and there is nothing to be ashamed of. In time Jews will learn to take pride in the record of the Jewish Communists in the Soviet Union and elsewhere. It was a species of striking back.”

152 thoughts on “Stalin’s Willing Executioners: Jews as a Hostile Elite in the USSR

  1. An excellent and informative article. I would tend to believe Solzhenitsyn’s figures of 66 million, as he was very sedulous in verifying his statements from at least 2 independent sources. In his books, such as the Gulag Archipeligo, he will state where he hasn’t been able to do so.
    One minor point, which is incorrect, pertains to Felix Dzerzhinsky, he was the head of the Cheka. The NKVD was only formed in 1934. Dzerzhinsky was one tough, mean bastard who was called “Iron” Felix because of his utter ruthlessness.

  2. Yes, this article is without doubt an A-star article, worth its weight in gold. It’s incredibly long and so I really do recommend that you print it out if you can for more leisurely reading.

    Darkmoon’s terse and highly informative notes help to reinforce the overall thesis of the article that the Russian Revolution was a Jewish led revolution, like so many other bloody revolutions. Yep, it’s the same old story. Look for the Jew hiding under the bed. Cherchez le Juif!

    Incredible to think that the Jews and the mainstream media still try to present the Jews as among the many victims of the Stalin era, whereas without the Jews there would have been no revolution at all — and the Romanovs would still be seated on the Russian throne.

  3. Another means of corroborating or inferring the mens rea,(guilty mind) or murderous intent of Jewry in the mass murder of Gentiles is this book, written prior to America’s entry into WW2:

    Although it doesn’t pertain to Russia it reveals the modus operandi of Jewry in carrying out genocide. Another good read is “The Unknown Mao”, by Jung Chang. I believe her figures, which she had confirmed by unknown contacts in the Chinese Politburo, of 77,000,000.

  4. The grim history of  the Soviet Union in the time of Lenin and Stalin will not befall the Americans. Control of the currency had already happened in the US when Russia fell hard. The Pharisees controlled the banks in most of Europe and in America….they needed the same in Russia… to get the oil. Russia was the number one oil producing country then, as it is STILL today. Force was necessary to control Russia, as it was in America in the 1860s. They got both.

    Pharisee control in America in the early 20th century was even more solid than in Russia by then. They owned control of the currency. It was unseen, but there. They were so powerful they EVEN – forced – Henry Ford to recant his claims in his own newspaper.

    THAT’s CONTROL…. of debt and the judiciary and media in the EASTERN ESTABLISHMENT….Pharisees had it:

    “To my great regret, I have learned that Jews generally, and particularly those of this country, not only resent these publications as promoting anti-Semitism, but regard me as their enemy,” the draft read. “Had I appreciated even the general nature, to say nothing of the details of these utterances, I would have forbidden their circulation without a moment’s hesitation.” Accepting every word, Ford authorized Bennett to sign his name to the statement. It hit the newspapers on July 8, 1927.

    “Suing Henry Ford – The trial that forced the automaker to apologize for his anti-Semitism.”

    1. Bottom line: It won’t befall America because unlike the Russians who turned ‘em in, they’ll have to pry our cold dead hands off our guns if they try and go after them

      1. B-Hawk –
        They pried them enough, already… very successfully…in the 1860s.
        Then they set up NRA in 1871 to control them in the future.

        Pharisees have the debt. No need for guns.

      2. Right

        It’s not worth it to pry any further. Not that they don’t revisit the issue now and then just to test how dumbed-down the masses may have become. After all, once they got a taste for blood, and they tasted it big time when taking over all of Russia…

        Dumb, but not that dumb

      3. People donating to NRA…donate to gun CONTROL:

        NRA Supported the National Firearms Act of 1934.
        In fact, they’ve supported gun rights infringements “since…1871.”

        by Angel Shamaya
        Founder/Executive Director

        March 29, 2002
        “The National Rifle Association has been in support of workable, enforceable gun control legislation since its very inception in 1871.”
        —NRA Executive Vice President Franklin L. Orth
        NRA’s American Rifleman Magazine, March 1968, P. 22

    2. “The Pharisees controlled the banks in most of Europe and in America.”

      Not the Pharisees, it is the kohanim or priesthood that is the controller. It is the Temple priests that maintain power – both then and now. The Pharisees were rank and file Jews, much like their kin the Rabbis. The kohein were the Mikdash (Temple) priest who controlled the coffers. The Mikdash kohanim collective was in turn ruled by the dictatorial powers of the kohein gadol, the high priest. True, on weighty matters the seventy man Sanhedrin would be called into session, but the kohein gadol had the final say in all matters. Their Mikdash was much like a monarchy where a king has court advisers, but the king has the final word in all matters. In fact, Jews long lamented their loss of the united monarchy served by powerful rulers like Saul, David and Solomon.

      Jews have always been prone to the collective state with centralized rule by dictatorial power and this was the case under the Mikdash’s sacrificial system. Mikdash followers were rquired to continually sacrifice their labor and resources to satisfy their god and invoke forgiveness for their sins. This is the same form of continual sacrifice demanded by the Jew’s secular IRS, Yet the Mikdash system was even more impoverishing for first century Jews.

      A completely secular form of this collective system was ultimately achieved during the twentieth century with the Jew’s communist form of government administered under Soviet rule. This was also the system the intended for National Socialist Germany as well, until Hitler “double-crossed” the Jews; note the socialistic collective in the name. However, this only works in the Jew’s interest when it is their collective system run by their dictatorial ruler.

      Yeshu (Jesus) gave up his life as the ultimate sacrifice to destroy this system and remove its terrible, onerous burden from his people. [Ron: Esu survived the crucifixio and went toIndia and lived to about 115 years of age.].  Adolf Hitler also gave up his life in the ultimate effort to expel this system’s terrible, onerous burden from his country. This is why Jesus and Hitler are the two most hated men in Jewish history. This is why the Jews treat the historical accounts of these two men in an almost identical manner, continually “defaming” their memory.

      The Jews learned long ago what is good for the goyim is anathema to their power and rule. That is why their “god” “confused the languages” to break up Nimrod’s unified, homogeneous kingdom. To wit:

      ‘They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And the LORD said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”

      Nationalism promotes the very same homogeneous society that worried the Torah’s “god” of the Israelites. For Jews the collective consciousness of National Socialism represented the same threat because once again its collective resources were used to advance the culture’s interests over the Jew’s economic interest.

      This is why Jews now have a global Babel program in process for western civilization. This effort represents their ultimate attempt to eradicate, or to use the Jewish term, “genocide”, the entire white race, i.e. all western civilization. Historically, the white European is the only enemy that has ever had the intelligence and power to neutralize Jewish dominion over a host culture.

      1. Up to the end of the second Temple, the kohein gadol was the high priest of the Temple. His modern counterpart would be the head of the house of Rothschild. The Rothschilds logically structured their new money system on the original model of the second Temple’s sacrificial system, substituting their money as the new, secular “god.” While the Jew’s god of capitalism is money, the communist Jew’s god is the state. However, in either case, the Jew’s god is a cold-blooded, psychopathic murderer with no remorse or compassion for those destroyed by its predations.

        The difference between the first century Temple and the later secular system is the chief priests, the Sadducee, of the modern money Temple are all members of the Rothschild dynasty, while the “scribes” and “pharisees” of that day might be more analogous to lesser tribal members, i.e. political administrators like Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith or Rahm Emanuel, along with economic administrators like Allen Greenspan, Ben Bernanke and wealth movers/manipulators like Jacob Schiff, George Soros and Bernhard Baruch.

        As with the second Temple priesthood, the names and positions of these modern, lesser priests, scribes and pharisees frequently change, but their job description does not.

      2. “Historically, the white European is the only enemy that has ever had the intelligence and power to neutralize Jewish dominion over a host culture.”

        Oh, Really? Then how can you explain the fact that non-Western cultures are much more effective and efficient than Western individualistic societies at keeping Jews in a powerless position where they do not pose a competitive threat

    3. I once screwed a jew, financially that is. My landlord, who was Italian, and gorgeous, had died. His elderly mother returned to Italy, and left rent collection in the hands of a jew. When the ceiling fell in, I refused to pay rent until it was fixed, he sent someone to repair the ceiling, but the rubble was left in the middle of the room. The jews wife rang me, and told me I would have to pay the back dated rent. I moved out. Never did pay the back dated rent..

  5. @Brownhawk
    Let’s hope so. Don’t forget the US has 60 million Christians Zionists, plus the born again crowd, who would be quite willing to be the Jew’s willing executioners. You also have nearly all your members of congress acting on behalf of the Jews. If I was an American, I’d be studying Michael Collins and other guerrilla leaders. Download the Anarchist’s Cookbook while you can as the Jewess Feinstein wants to ban it.

    1. @Felix
      Initially, those 60-million “Christian” Zionists won’t do squat because they will be waiting for the bogus rapture to save they happy butts. Once the establishment rounds them up for the slaughter, they will be out of the way.

      Even if only 5% participate in defending their liberty, the establishment is still way out numbered and out gunned. True guerrilla warfare cannot be defeated. Guerrillas can be defeated only when the guerrillas organize and play the game by the rules of their foes.

  6. i object to the following meme, that tries to exculpate jews:

    hostile elite with a deep sense of historic grievance

    we have never done them any wrong and they know it perfectly.
    the fact is that they don’t hate innocence any less on account of innocence, if anything it spurs them to even greater sadism and hate.
    if we started repaying them in kind, we would only stand to gain respect, not more hatred.
    but of course, if rough justice ran its due course, jews would be more extinct than pterodactyls.

    jews define themselves as enemy of mankind, pure and simple and as long as we are around, they will remain our implacable enemy, therefore any attempt to placate them will be rewarded with more derision and contempt and conviction that they are on the right path.

    today is orthodox easter, because they follow the old, julian calendar.
    now, pesach-passover is supposedly older than easter and predates it and has its own reason for existence, independent of easter, right?
    so why t.f. are they sticking to a papist calendar and coincide it with catholic easter?
    i will tell you why.
    every jew holiday has its overt and covert purpose, pesach today celebrates the crucifixion of christ.
    because jews are the creatures of antichrist and it swells them with pride.
    the “lucky” ones devour matzos into whose dough was kneaded blood of a young christian boy (innocent, like christ was) kidnapped and ritually sacrificed after purim, the festival of lots, overtly celebrating the slaughter of 75,000 persians but covertly to select the next victim and the ordinary ones roast a lamb (another metaphor for christ) turning the spit in upright position to mirror his orientation on the cross.

    so tell me about the “historic grievance“.

    1. I wonder if this is where the expression, “to suffer your ‘lot’ in life came from? At any rate, what you describe could be characterized as being one of those worldly ‘cloaks’. Then there’s the metaphysical one….more on that later

    2. Yes lobro –

      The whole Talmud is Pharisaic silly invention. Here are the inventions of festivals denoted:

      SEDER MOED (festivals):
      a. Sabbath (laws of; endless silly regulations and their evasions) 
      b. Erubin (mingling)
      c. Pesahim (passover)
      d. Shekalin (shekels)
      e. Yoma (Yom Kippur)
      f. Sukkah (booths)
      g. Yom Tob (feast day)
      h. Rosh Hashona (New Year)
      i. Ta‘anit (fasting)
      j. Megillah (Scroll of Esther, read on Purim)
      k. Moed Katan (half feasts)
      l. Hagigah (feasting)
      The Megillah is a sadistic celebration of drunkenness and bloodlust, the Talmudic admonition being that it is the duty of the Jew to be so drunk on Purim he doesn‘t know the difference between “Blessed be Mordechai” and “Cursed be Haman.” (See Exhibit 299)
      There are 12 books in Moed.

    3. the fact is that they don’t hate innocence any less on account of innocence, if anything it spurs them to even greater sadism and hate.

      jews define themselves as enemy of mankind, pure and simple and as long as we are around, they will remain our implacable enemy, therefore any attempt to placate them will be rewarded with more derision and contempt and conviction that they are on the right path.

      This is the crux of the issue. The jew is a parasite and a destroyer. He knows this, and enjoys it. Jew-wise Whites like MacDonald who still buy into the idea of “grievances” and “anti-Semitism” are ignoring the fact that Jews KNOW they have no real complaints against Europeans, that Jews simply hate us for its own sake, and that Jews are at war with us.

    4. @ lobro

      i object to the following meme, that tries to exculpate jews: hostile elite with a deep sense of historic grievance.

      we have never done them any wrong and they know it perfectly…. so tell me about the historic grievance.”

      You are wrong to imply that Kevin MacDonald is up to no good and is trying to “exculpate the Jews”, i.e., let the Jews off the hook.

      Your error lies in a semantic misinterpretation of the phrase “hostile elite with a deep sense of historic grievance.”

      Firstly, they ARE a hostile elite; no question about that.

      Secondly, in saying that the Jews have “a deep sense of historic grievance”, MacDonald is not implying that the grievance is a JUSTIFIABLE one. He is simply stating an undeniable historical fact: that the Jews have been complaining about pogroms and persecutions since time immemorial.

      Their historic “grievance” is that they have been treated unfairly, that they were expelled from various European countries unfairly over hundreds of years, and that they have been scapegoated for crimes they *claim* they never committed, e.g. ritual murder.

      Nowhere is MacDonald taking their part and saying they have a right to be so grieved. You have misread his meaning. If you were to go on his website and read several of Andrew Joyce’s essays that MacDonald has published, you will see that all these essays are about how the Jews have exaggerated their persecutions and even invented their pogroms.

      See, for example:




      MacDonald would hardly publish these profoundly anti-Jewish essays of Andrew Joyce which INCULPATE the Jews if he had himself being in the business of “exculpating” them! :)

      MacDonald’s present essay, moreover, is an anti-Jewish tour de force in that it piles up the evidence for Jewish involvement in the Bolshevik Revolution.

      Would I have gone to the trouble of annotating MacDonald’s outstanding essay, a cult classic in every way, if I had thought he was trying to “exculpate” the Jews and let them off the hook?

      1. lash, no need to defend macdonald to me because i did not attack him.

        i am simply trying to point out a semantic error, just like max would do because i am also on defense against yielding them the control of language – language is the construction material of thinking.

        macdonald is an academic and such constrained within that “peer reviewed” matrix and who are the overseers of this matrix?

        i am quite sure of macdonald’s best intentions, however, another academic disease is that of narrowly focused specialization where one accumulates expert bonus points that protect him from intra-faculty snipers, thus there seems to be emphasis on white european cultures rather than global struggle to rid ourselves against murderous pathogen – witness the title, Occidental Observer.
        and then you get the assortment of white supremacists hollering themselves hoarse against muslims and non-european societies and ultimately aiding jew’s interests.

        once again, i don’t blame macdonald for anything, least of all good intentions and scholarly integrity.

        get my point?

      2. besides i quite doubt that jews themselves truly believe in the “historic grievance” hasbara, including the holocaust.

        they know perfectly well what a window dressing it really is, which is why they prohibit any fact finding efforts.

        no, their grievance and outrage is that we, the cattle, would dare challenge their defining OUR reality, because this is what it boils down to: jew considers himself god and creator of reality (“some things are true that never happened, rebbe” – this is kabbalah in its pure form – not for us to question why).

        trust me lash, i did think it through, if you find an error in my logic, do me a favor and correct me.

      3. Prof. MacDonald had to remain within “academic respectability”, therefore he had to use euphemistic terms, but of course he knows full well what the Jews are up to. He describes Jewish behavior as an “group evolutionary strategy” and he states that as such Jews have a “conflict of interests” with Gentiles. This is a polite way of saying that Jews are a bunch of destructive parasites, at war with the whole of humanity. He had to do this to pose as an objective scholar studying a social phenomenon.

        We, commenters on websites such as this one, need not to restrict our language.
        Personally I would describe the Jews as a :


        One can take the demonical part of the definition in a literal or a metaphorical sense as one likes. Fact is, as Lobro so astutely remarks, Jews hate spiritual innocence for its own sake, and that is typically demonic in my book. It is exactly for this demonical hatred of innocence that Jews are engaged in the promotion of pornography and all kinds of other depravations. Jews are a group of people far advanced on the way of evil and it is doubtful they still can be saved.

      4. @ lobro

        Thank you for clarifying your position. I am relieved to hear that you were not attacking MacDonald. If I got this impression, it was because you objected to his comment “When the Jews achieved power in Russia, it was as a hostile elite with a deep sense of historic grievance.”

        Your response to this comment was: “i object to the following meme, that tries to exculpate jews: hostile elite with a deep sense of historic grievance.”

        You also seem a bit unhappy about the name MacDonald chose for his website: the Occidental Observer. Aren’t you being a bit pernickety and needlessly fault-finding?

        After all, MacDonald is an Observer of the political scene and he is doing that from the viewpoint of an Occidental. You can hardly expect him to view the world through the eyes of an Oriental, can you? :)

        No offense intended. Just pointing out facts. MacDonald is a friend, not an enemy, and his cautious, academic approach is infinitely preferable to the kind of screaming anti-Semitism you sometimes get in the Comments section of this website.

        Hysterical shrieks of “LET’S KILL ALL THE JEWS!” are not going to advance our cause one little bit. Such people belong in a nuthouse. Instead, they have chosen to infest our website and try to give us a bad name by their demented ravings.


      5. ok lash, the coast is clear, the natives friendly.

        i guess i am a Gentile Observer, just for transparency’s sake.

        also, i cannot quite agree with

        cautious, academic approach is infinitely preferable to the kind of screaming anti-Semitism

        as an axiomatic truism this has never been demonstrated to my satisfaction.

        sort of like (sometimes) well meaning peaceniks who urged palestinians to adopt the approach of civil disobedience, a gandiesque gameplan and where did it get them except that the jews just loved it.

        do you actually believe that cautious, academic approach will rid us of this tenacious pestilence?

        in fact, though his site is highly reputable, it doesn’t come close to impacting on public conscience the way yours does, at least in my opinion (of course unverified, i could be quite wrong).

        you have readers and comments from all across the globe, many whose native tongue is not english.

        occidental is a kind of fallback retreat that will likely survive most internet purges because the persecution will have a hard time fielding a legal charge against him.
        but the war front must be advanced beyond the fallback position if there is any hope to be had in a positive outcome.

      6. @ lobro

        …the war front must be advanced beyond the fallback position if there is any hope to be had in a positive outcome.

        Rest easy, friend, I know exactly what you’re saying. If I err in your eyes in trying to act as a spokesman for moderation, it’s possibly because I am sensitive to accusations that this site is a Zionist front designed as a honeytrap for people like you and Lonnie and SPQR. That’s what “Save the Goyim” said.

        It really got to me…that unfair accusation. It pained me to think that my family and I were accused of being entrapment agents. Naturally, I don’t want you or your fellow activists to say anything too over-the-top that gets you caught in the Devil’s mousetrap.

        Big Brother, as you know, is watching you closely and has already booked you a nice room in his FEMA camp. :)

      7. of course i understand that lash.

        so now is a good time to unplug the semantics dicer.
        i made all the points i wanted to.

      8. PEACE IN…
        Thank You, Ms. Lasha DarkMoon, for this clear response that help to know and better understand the issues involved with the world community’s “Jewish Problem” that has been a real plague on our health, safety, and overall welfare as One Human Family for far, far, far to long.

        From current conditions, it seems time for ALL TRIBES IN A UNITED ONE HUMAN FAMILY to truthfully
        know, fully expose, directly confront, and to fight uncompromisingly to defeat and to eliminate the Jewish Problem from being allowed to do what it has been doing for thousands of years to rule over our FAMILY, ever, ever, ever again.

        Literacy and speed of communications allow us to spread TRUTH around the globe in seconds. We must continue to work hard spreading the GOSPEL OF TRUTH about this Jewish Problem to all so that our world community can liberate and free itself for taking full responsibility for our common destiny from here until forever more.

        Zionazis Jews are “WORLD PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE”, and we must win total victory over them – PERIOD!

        Thank you, DarkMoon. May good health, peace of mind, and success in all good works be yours.
        Your example is true as a devoted servant of our human community. Thank You for all done in that regard.

    5. pat, regarding the silly and arbitrary talmudic regulations and minutiae, i suspect the further jew psychology at work:

      1. occult, magic and superstition are urged upon the rank and file

      2. the murk of incomprehensible gibberish replaces the light of individual honor, morality and free faith

      3. and because the basic algorithm of parasitic invasion is so successful, talmudic rabbis manage to convince the troops that their golem magic works wonders, the miracle of witchcraft is proof of the pudding and victory over wimpy, loving religions (in lurianic kabbalah, they blame feminine element and pronounce it “evil”, ie, does not further the interests of mythival “israel” (a state of being, not an actual country, more like b-hawk’s happy hunting ground in the sky))

      4. repeated drilling of the occult message induces pavlovian response among the cult members and makes them more ready to undertake any act of evil in a reflex, unthinking fashion

      5. gradually, they become ever more sold on the inversion of conventional definitions of good and evil

      6. which then proves graphically to them that we, the gentiles are the evil ones and must be hated

      ————could go on but “6” is such a nice number, no?————

      through incessant feedback this becomes a self reinforcing warp, a veritable perpetuum mobile that has as side effect mass psychosis and cognitive dissonance, which actually aids the enslavement to the infernal plan.

      how do you deal with this machine?

      talking nice, trying to convince them of goodness of christian values, mercy, charity, neighborly cooperation simply convinces them of your evil and need to destroy you, this is why they hate the innocence so much, thus corruption, pedophilia, snuff movies, each such misdeed is a victory in the great battle against the christ who would destroy their moneychangers’ lives, the temples, the synagogue of devil.

      the only thing to do is hammer it to smithereens so it can never reassemble itself elsewhere like the bad cartoon characters.

      1. The best—

        “…incomprehensible gibberish…” ha! (and MUST be interpreted…)

        Numbering your list would fall short even at 10 to the 6th…

      2. God help the one who gets thrown into the same FEMA dungeon cell as lobro. lobro just never stops talking. The poor fellow will never have any peace with lobro’s mouth going a mile a minute every second day and night 24/7.

      3. something tells me that i’d be shut down promptly, thanks to a nearby prison snitch to whom malice is reward in itself.

    6. Das Juden also usually celebrates their ‘holy days’ by either blowing up some nation or city or having one of their flunky nations, like Occupied America, bomb some poor folks back to the Stone Age.

      You can’t get any more religious than that!

    7. This is not an attempt to exculpate the Jews. It is merely stating the Jew’s viewpoint. Obviously, Jews firmly believe they have legitimate historic grievances. These beliefs are maintained despite anything the hated goyim might say about it, much like Jews firmly believe every non-Jew harbors “anti-Semitic” feelings along with deep-seated, fascist attitudes lurking just below the cultural surface. Essentially this is the Jew’s delusional state of mind, one created by projecting the truly legitimate grievances non-Jews have against them for the Jew’s murderous predations upon their cultures.

  7. Haven`t read MacDonalds article as yet, only Lasha`s introduction, and would like to say that nothing much has changed. The gulags are now in prisons, like those in the US, where the prisoners are cheap labour. Millions are dying, in various parts of the world, at the hands of the jews, and their minions. Innocent men, women, and children, are being droned, and bombed, in Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, and assorted African countries, by the jew controlled US, in Yemen by the Saudis, backed by the US, and Israel, their infrastructure is being destroyed, in exactly the same way as happened in Lebanon, and Gaza. No-one is safe anymore, even the nordic countries are lining up in support of NATO, and the aggression toward Russia.. It is making me sick, and angry..

    1. @Ingrid B
      I couldn’t agree more. Which is why, in the long run, THEY will not succeed. Yes, they are satanically clever, but they ignore the universal law of Karma. Study history. When has a society or race which practises evil or tyranny lasted? I know it is cold comfort to us in the here and now, because like wolves, they prey on our moral weaknesses to enslave us. So if you want to live free, prepare for, and lose one’s fear of death. Then they will no longer have any hold over you.
      At the moment the Jews seem omnipotent and omniscient. Nothing could be further from the truth. These wars being launched by the Jewish controlled states are indicative of their moral, military and political weaknesses.
      Morally and politically they have already lost. Militarily they are, in effect, fighting an unwinnable, global guerrilla war which is depleting their blood and treasure. There is a rule of thumb in guerrilla war that to win it, one must deploy 20 troops per 1,000 head of population. Since World War 2, the only major guerrilla war to be won by a Western power in Asia was in Malaya, by the British. It wasn’t even called a war, but an emergency for insurance purposes and it lasted 12 years from 1948 to 1960. So what hope is there for victory in the unwinnable GWOT, Global War on Terrorism? Tactically they may win a few victories, but strategically they have already lost. In warfare it is important to concentrate one’s forces and achieve one objective at a time. In Afghanistan 700.000 troops should have deployed commensurate with the population. A fully functional central government controlling the entire country should have been established. The Taliban still control the Pashtun areas of the country, the “central” government a tiny enclave around Kabul, and then only with the support of foreign troops.
      In Iraq 500, 000 troops where required. No, the Jews running the Pentagon, thought they knew better than the US army chief of staff, Shinseki. He was removed from his post. I have a friend who served in the US army in Iraq and he agrees that they were beaten, due to insufficient manpower.
      Perhaps this is all part of a Jewish masterplan to destroy the United States? Perhaps the Jews are too clever for their own good? I don’t know. I do know one thing is that it cannot last, because it cannot be sustained indefinitely.

      1. “Yes, they are satanically clever, but they ignore the universal law of Karma.”

        Felix, denial ain’t just a spoke in the wheel of karma.

        Why would you or anyone think the goys/(supposed non-demons) are exempt, guiltless in their wholesale complicit participation and even reveling in their obscene assault upon mother nature and her animals as is exhibited via everyday “normal life?” The so-called “innocents” fully and willingly participate and actually strive for more and more material wallowing, armed with their envy, coveting, greed and lust.

        The 95% are certainly not innocent nor are they excused due to ignorance of the laws of nature or phony abrogations of their misdeeds via concocted philosophies, philanthropic delusions and irreligious conjuring disguised as religious redemption.

        They can’t even fool mother nature and they try to fool the Lord!!?

        If they had even half a functioning brain, much less a sincere heart, the last thing they would ever entertain would be thoughts and words and prayers for karma/justice..

        They’d be better off putting a mill stone around their own necks and leaping into the sea. THAT would be (will be) karma and justice.

        Meantime, best to not look over their shoulders.
        Someone is gaining..

      2. HP,
        Exactly, it is only by purifying ourselves that we become free. Remember the teachings of the Upanishads, “only actions done in God bind not the soul of man”! I certainly wouldn’t relish the having the Karma of the richest and most powerful people on the planet. I have too many of my own defilements. Yes, 95% of today’s population are incurring terrible karma. That’s why I shudder at what is to come and we have no one to blame but ourselves.

      3. Lobro, my relatives are all four. Me too.
        Relatively speaking..

        Felix yes, you knew that. You’re an adult full with life, like Brownhawk. Yeah, you too Pat. Oh Well..

        Felix, here’s my nice cottage in Austin.
        A Buddhist monk lived there, before I did. I lived nearby (in the truck) and he would ring his bell every afternoon for tea and I’d commence trying to convince him there really is a God! (haha) Months on end.
        He was very capable and good. A pretty darn perfect neighbor.

        The nice veranda we built is gone now. A courtyard from cedar posts and branches with a roof of mustang grape vines and morning glories. A big bright writing spider had a web on the NW window. One of ’24 gurus’
        We got along famously.
        They fancied it up some

        Twenty Four Gurus

      4. @HP
        Thanks for those links. That’s one nice place you live in! What happened to the Buddhist monk?

    2. Furthermore, Ingrid B.
      Take a look at how Napoleon was weakened. He invaded Spain in 1808 to place his brother on the throne. The Spaniards rose up in guerrilla war(guerrilla, Spanish for little war) and this was the beginning of the end for Napoleon. Although it took another 6 years before his defeat at “The Battle of the Nations” and 7 if you include Waterloo.

      1. Thanks Felix, I know you`re right, look at Hezbollah, and what they achieved, Hamas too, and Islamic Jihad, against all odds.. That which is being waged, in Yeman, as in Gaza, is not war. It is a cowardly attack, from a position of safety, against defenceless civilians. Why do the Yemens, and Gazans, not have defensive air defence? If the expensive aircraft were being shot out of the air, maybe the sicko`s would think twice. I really admire the way Iran, and Russia, are calling for a peaceful solution, it is just so heartbreaking, to see the little dead children, not to mention adults, and you have to admire the united front displayed by the Yemenis. I think a big thankyou is due to Press TV, for bringing us the truth, even if it is painful..

      1. Thanks for the link Gilbert, one of the shots reminded me of a pic I saw recently, of a Syrian boy, sleeping between the graves of his parents, with a blanket for cover. I think I might have the pic somewhere..

        One more thing I`d like to say on Yemen. If, as one Iranian suggested, the turmoil in Yemen crosses the border into KSA, I imagine there will be many Saudis who will join the Yemenis in overthrowing Al Saud..

  8. David Ben Gurion, “Father of Modern Israel”, started his rise to power as a Bolshevik guerilla in Russia, busy exterminating the goy his brethren wanted dead. He declared at the founding ceremony that Israel was created to further the cause of International Socialism!

  9. Fellow Darkmooners:
    Great article indeed. Good historical analysis as well as a good description of the pyschological nature of the tribe and their tribalism. Maybe a good followup would be to look at Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s works since his more recent works are banned from publication because of the truth and pearls of wisdom they reveal. His Gulag Archipeligo was a good start in exposing the truth about jews, but elitist jews in particular. Also this article confirms what people like Henry Makow of have said, ” Most modern ISMS are of jewish origin”. That is marxism, communism, naziism, feminism, multiculturalism, etc.. And of course most of these movements also support and come from the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. Also in the early part of the article, the references to the relationship between Germany/German nation states/cities and Russia show that they were and are friends despite the wars, which were brought on them by others. Thus in today’s modern scenario, Germany will again look east to Russia as in the past. However, before that happens America must be removed from Europe’s back and must be destroyed. That is what we are witnessing
    as the Hegelian dialectic of the Putin/Russia/China/BRICS vs. Western Obama/FED Ponzi scheme is played out. Another clue is all the alternative media buzz around Jade Helm 15, planned for this summer. America’s collapse and the real WW3 are coming soon under Obama’s reign. Everything so far whether reported by the MSM lies or the alternative media truth are just chess moves on the board, through economic and political warfare by posturing. Gee, my _____ is bigger/faster/more powerful, etc. than yours. And as extrapolated by the article, the elite jews of the Rothschild Zionist Nazi Communist Jesuit Illuminati are behind it all. Finally, even Israel, because of Zionist Nazi Benjamin Netanyahu, will suffer. That is to say the common secular, atheist or religious jew in Israel will be destroyed by Muslims because the elite jewish power manipulates and controls the Muslims. That hidden hand from the time of the Babylonian captivity: Talmudic Kabalistic Phariseeism. Thanks, Norbert.

    1. However, before that happens America must be removed from Europe’s back and must be destroyed.

      If America is destroyed the Jews will flee to China or Israel and continue their destructive ways. The last thing the world needs are a billion Chinese sociopaths under the sway of the Jew.

      No, what needs to be destroyed is Jewry itself, once and for all. These parasites have fucked up the world for 3,000 years and brought to ruin every civilization they ever set foot in. They have the blood of millions on their hands, and they need to brought to justice for it.

      1. @ SPQR
        I agree with your sentiment, but biblically speaking, America is not involved in the final attempt to destroy world jewry in Israel, unless you count the finall 10 toes of Nebuchadnezzar’s statue dream or the beast with seven heads and 10 horns as the current Western Alliance (Anglo-America-Western European NATO power) as a descendant of the Roman Empire. However, most scholars and Biblical experts favour a Revived Roman Empire as repesented by a Reformed European Union ( 10 members/nations ) led by the Vatican. This view also corresponds with the UN division of the globe into 10 regions where one region controls the other 9. Also you are forgetting that this current dialectic of Obama/FED Ponzi system/NATO vs. Putin/Russia/China/BRICS is still controlled by international Jewry (aka Rothschild Zionist Nazi Communist Jesuit Pharisaic Illuminati). Right now America is used as a destabilization agent to spread chaos, ie. divide and conquer. From this dialectic America will be destroyed and replaced by some synthesis/solution that the masses can not see. My suspicion is a Swiss BIS (Bank for International Settlements) using SDRs (Special Drawing Rights/Credits/Cashless society) led by a European Superstate (United States of Europe/ 4th Reich) led by Germany and supported by the Vatican. Russia/China will support this new power. It will be this grouping led by the Antichrist that will destroy Jewry in Israel. But as the Bible in the book of Revelation shows, Israel (jews) will be saved by Jesus Christ. However, only 1/3rd of jews (those that recognize Jesus as Messiah and G-d) will be saved, the Satanic ones (Illuminati Jews) will be destroyed. This is where Zionist Nazi Netanyahu fits in. Netanyahu is secretly and/or unknowingly helping to destroy his people. Kind of like how Zionists helped the Nazis in WW2. Thus International Jewry will have finally outsmarted themselves. How ironic, huh? SPQR, your wish will be partially fulfilled, just not in the way you expect. Hope this helps explain things. Thanks, Norbert.

      2. Norbert –
        SDRs are already in use in USPS Int’l insured parcels since 2010:

        323 Priority Mail International Insurance
        Convert the U.S. dollar amount to the special drawing right (SDR) value and enter it in the SDR value block. For example: INSURED VALUE $100.00 (U.S.) 65.09 SDR See for a table showing the conversion of U.S. dollar values up to $600 to SDR equivalents

        323.62 Accepting Clerk’s Responsibility
        The accepting clerk must do the following:
        1. Indicate on PS Form 2976-A the amount for which the parcel is insured. Write the amount in U.S. dollars in ink in the “Insured Amount (U.S.) block.
        2. Convert the U.S. dollar amount to the special drawing right (SDR) value and enter it in the SDR value block. For example:
        $100.00 (U.S.)
        65.09 SDR

      3. Zionist Jewry didn’t really “help” the Reich. Starting in 1933 Hitler and Zionists had an agreement to transfer Jews, along with their wealth, to Palestine. It was seen as mutually beneficial, as it helped rid Germany of its Jewish problem and it also helped Zionists get their much-wanted Jewish return to their motherland. The only reason why it’s not well-known is because it helps refute the idea that Hitler wanted to wipe out all the jews right from the start.

        As for the rest of your post, I’m not sure what to say about it.

  10. Addendum –
    Recently a comment I made at an alternative view website –, concerning the Iranian P5 + 1 nuclear negotiations and Iran’s and America’s (Obama’s) role in it, was at first posted to my surpreise. I was surprised because my comment refuted the writer’s assertions which were very Zionist/Neocon oriented and even quoted from (Charles Krauthammer, CFR member, dual citizen Israeli-American). The website then proceeded by having a reply/rebuttal posted to my comment, which was written by a Controlled Opposition troll who tried to make me look stupid/extreme. Then I wrote a reply to the troll where I stated what troll strategy was being used (false strawman), with evidence and historical fact that could not be denied plus mentioning other alternative truther websites that its subscribers/readers/visitors could access for truth. Once I had exposed the lie, following the MSM script and Zionist propaganda, the whole comment, troll reply and my reply to the troll, was removed. I had beat them at their own propaganda game. The truth may be removed for convenience, but the truth will win eventually. Thanks, Norbert.

    1. Thanks Norbert – It is a common practice… censorship.

      Now that Pharisees have total control of Russian wealth, they are on a censorship campaign there also, taking down blog sites.

      Today’s Pharisees in Russia have created media and internet censor… Roskomnadzor… and it has increased government control of the Internet in recent months. Last August Russia enacted a law that forced all bloggers with more than 3,000 daily readers to register with the Roskomnadzor, basically outlawing anonymous blogs. Earlier in the year, Russia approved a law that lets Roskomnadzor unilaterally block Web sites without explanation; the sites of prominent Putin critics were among the first to go dark.

      Now they are blocking sites with Putin and public figure memes.

      Russian censors have determined that one of the most popular forms of Internet meme is illegal. According to Roskomnadzor, the Kremlin’s media watchdog, it’s now against the law to use celebrities’ photographs in a meme, “when the image has nothing to do with the celebrity’s personality.”

      1. the sites of prominent Putin critics were among the first to go dark

        pat, this may actually be a good thing, ie, putin is preempting jews by staking out his media turf unpolluted by them.
        who are the most prominent Putin critics? jews and traitors who are jew media darlings like kasparov.
        this puts the stealth operators funded by cia, mi6, mossad and other allied agencies on notice: no color revolutions run behind ngo stalking horses will be slithering by unseen.

        i would do exactly the same in putin’s place, any blog smelling of chicken soup and pickled carp – out.
        why should yids and shabbos be the only ones allowed to play that game?

        how many pro-bric ngo’s are operating in the states, wooing people with free lunches and promises of bright future if they take to the streets in bloody battles with cops, professional provocateurs with specialized military training organizing crowds, rooftop snipers running false flag ops, nafta revolution will be tweeted …

  11. The head Jew (and she really is a Jew, unlike the way “Jew” is often misused) needs to be ousted and NOT be replaced by Charles or William (more Jews). BEGONE to that fake-queen E2 (of the “House of Jewdah”), so that counterfeit-Jew bankers can be ousted too.

  12. He’s produced more analysis for intellectuals who are too afraid to read it. Forget the intellectuals, forget the footnotes – both are totally useless. Will footnotes persuade an egghead to defend himself? Who cares what the intellectuals think? They’re not going to save themselves, let alone the rest of us.

    What must we do to prevent Jewish rule? The Jews use the police and military against their Gentile enemies. You can see where this puts us, in the grip of an American Cheka in which any encounter with the police can be fatal. All Americans in the Jewish police state must become armed and dangerous to police, who must now be overthrown by normal Americans. We not-so-normal Americans must start destroying the Jews who have created and supported the police state. This means virtually all Jews.

    All political writing and speaking must offer solutions to the Jewish Problem and the police problem. Analysis-only of our situation (Infowars) is debilitating and should be seen as black propaganda, accurate and sincere as it might be. It is wrong to take Jewish writing seriously, as McDonald does here, as if he could reason with a liar. All Jewish material is war propaganda. Anything that frightens, demoralizes or depresses us must be seen as a psychological operation.

    We must go on the offensive and propose ways to defeat Judaism and its police state. Everything offered by this writer in the past attempted to do that. Similar or better proposals must be presented.

    1. norbert above has indicated something possibly, if not probably, important

      the references to the relationship between Germany/German nation states/cities and Russia show that they were and are friends despite the wars, which were brought on them by others. Thus in today’s modern scenario, Germany will again look east to Russia as in the past. However, before that happens America must be removed from Europe’s back and must be destroyed.

      it makes sense.
      countries like the usa, britain and other anglo states are junkies hopelessly addicted to the fumes of colonialism, dreaming themselves as conquerors deserving exceptionalism and special treatment, ie, a jew’s disease.
      of course, in the aftermath of their false conquests, they are more impoverished than before and ask yourself why.
      because jew skimmed off all the profits, leaving the morons to wallow in bloodshed, theirs as well as their vanquished victims.
      this is why i don’t see much hope for the anglo countries joining the fight effectively, they came down with terminal jew disease and belief that they don’t need to work for their welfare, why work when you can kill, intimidate and plunder the resources of others, if not by outright force then through fiscal machinations where the caesar jew leads the army of financial swindlers and resource rapists.

      the main hope rests with central and eastern europe, still mostly traditionalist cultures rooted in soil (look at americans, nomads who up and shift locales every 3-4 years, hoping to run away from themselves).
      thus, german-russian axis is the key and whoever wishes to fight effectively must consider joining effort with them.

      arguing about putin this, merkel that is pointless and self-defeating, maybe they are not the ideal leaders but way better than anything else available.
      this constant harping on the hegelian dialectic is becoming like a religious chant of hare krishna.

      learn to distinguish jew’s real fear and hate from the feigned one, they are not that smart and good actors.
      isis – isil is the example of the hegelian dialectic, so obvious it is painful.
      their hatred of russia and iran is very real and you can see it clear as day in every single move they’ve been making.
      people were saying that gaddafi and saddam were rothschild sellouts and cryptos (look up jpost and ha’aretz articles linking gaddafi’s son with some jew whore and the “secret family roots in judaism”).
      yeah sure, so they impaled him, just like they do to other jews, right?

      one other thing.
      whenever they accuse someone as vociferously as stalin, don’t rush to judgment.
      why are they accusing just stalin while sweeping their own nefarious role under the rug? (lasha note: not talking about mac)
      because stalin is the convenient sacrificial goat.
      even mac calls them “stalin’s willing executioners” as if they were just happy morons following orders.
      it doesn’t add up, imo but i will leave it at that, don’t want any more flamethrowers pointing my way.

      there are never too many caveats when jew is the storyteller.
      right now, demonizing stalin helps demonize putin helps demonize russians (and i propose to unravel their yarn in the opposite direction) and the focus is averted from what they are doing in ukraine – and why.
      something out there scares and infuriates them and it pays to take a closer look.

      devil will never badmouth a truly bad person.

      1. “this constant harping on the hegelian dialectic is becoming like a religious chant of hare krishna.”

        For you, lobro, and a few others – yes.
        For me – probably.
        For some others – possibly.
        For the dozens of new readers – maybe not.

        Hegelian is a Pharisee-coveted tactic – easily understood. It needs to be stated as often as the warnings of ‘protocols’ and kol nidre.
        They all work together well in the hare-krishna-esque chants….. for teachers.
        Put it to rap or hip-hop… for da boyz… dey get it den….

      2. @ Lobro
        Now you are getting it. Merkel and Hollande, though infiltrated by International Jewry, see more value in siding with Russia. But the political situation and Jewish power over America and American power which is over Europe through NATO and occupation can not be removed quickly. Politics is slow and steady wins the race. However, European citizenry, but mainly Germans and German corporations, not necessarily the multinationals, but small and medium sized businesses, as well as the rise of nationalism and fascism (Naziism) will cause European politicians to change their views or be replaced by Fascists. This is similar to the time between WW1 and WW2. The same forces will rise in Europe of today as then. In this America and Britain will be removed and continental Europe will rise. Some charismatic leader will arise again, look east to Russia/China. Remember the talk of the New Silk Road that China is pushing, Russia supports and Germany secretly cheers for. Russia, China and Germany know that future propserity is on the Eurasian landmass and not with the Anglo-America sea empires. International jewry knows this too, but China must not be the new Superpower. Why? Because all modern schemes of the world domination by Jewry originated in Europe, especially Germany (ie. Rothschild Banking, Illuminati Jesuit Adam Weishaupt and social/religious movements of Jacob Frank) and were supported by the Vatican/corrupt papacy. Thus all future outcomes will return to Europe as well. The only change will be that the power structure HQ will shift from Europe to Jerusalem, Israel. This is where world Jewry thinks it is in control, but they will be betrayed and destroyed by the European power structure. Read the Bible and the books of Daniel and Revelation specifically to understand this. If you doubt this google terms like – 4th Reich, Revived Holy Roman Empire, Revived Roman Empire or Final revived revised European Union, to get a better understanding. Good work Lobro. Remember, a common human flaw is that smart analytical thinkers will eventually outsmart and out-think themselves to destruction. As in Pride cometh before a great fall. Thanks, Norbert.

  13. We have all seen thousands of essays and blogs on what the Jews have done or are doing or will do.
    Someone please put forth a plan that will actually do something to check the Jews.
    A wall of words will not reach the Joe Six Packs in the street.
    There are a number of great writers but no actual planners other than writing a great essay or book and then in essence preaching to the choir that needs no more convincing.
    There are those in this galaxy who do not wish to see Earth turned into a nuclear Moonscape.
    You will not listen but the solution is coming whether you accept it or not.
    Man is not the most evolved being in the Galaxy.
    I know this for a fact.

    1. WC –

      “Man is not the most evolved being in the Galaxy.”
      “I know this for a fact.”

      So ALL men on Earth could be trespassing on another being’s planet.

  14. “They socialized entirely with other Jews whom they met in the Jewish world of work, neighborhood, and Jewish social and political organizations. After they became Communists, they dated and married among themselves, and their social gatherings were conducted in Yiddish. ” :
    This is how I imagine the world to be, if they succeed in wiping us all out..

    1. There is nothing to stop them. Henry Ford kowtowed, Lord Northcliffe – powerful Press Baron was locked up in an Asylum from where he quickly died……on and on the people who phucked with them……can I throw in Julius Caesar from times past……………………..?

  15. Why must you all be led to water, like a dumb sheep? Initiate actions within your own abilities. Mark Koernke called it ‘butter knife brigades’. J.B. Campbell (and possibly Pat) knows what I’m talking about. Figure it out.

    1. Yep –

      Heard ‘Mark from Michigan’ mention it a lot on short-wave in the early 90s.
      He’s another one they set up and railroaded into prison for a few years, just before WTC attack. He has been out since 2006 or 2007… and back at it.

  16. Everybody shut up. We’re offending Gilbert’s tough macho man-of-action Hero sensibilities.

    1. i am gonna start a blog of silent, strong types, dead people automatically qualify.

      cia has been waterboarding one at gitmo for years before he signed confession, holding the pen in dead, cold hand.

      1. “cia has been waterboarding one at gitmo for years before he signed confession, holding the pen in dead, cold hand.”

        That one was…Marion Robert Morrison… John Ford’s favorite. Another was Ben Johnson…

        Took ‘em years to give in.

  17. Lobro, you are like me and David Icke/Henry Makow! …. You push the boundaries of attainable knowledge much further than anyone else, including Lasha Darkmoon.
    That is because you are 30 or so points further up the IQ scale. You see the other dimensions! …. Like me, all you can do is laugh as you read the same Jew-infested/Jew-controlled, hackneyed stuff over and over again.
    Only a you or an I could write such a powerfully advanced TRUTH as: “the fact is that they don’t hate innocence any less on account of innocence, if anything it spurs them to even greater sadism and hate.” AND “if we started repaying them in kind, we would only stand to gain respect, not more hatred.”
    And how “do we pay them in kind”, my dear Lasha and co? They do the crimes, they do the time! They do the mass murders (perhaps 400,000,000 murders or so that can be accounted for as a direct result of their “intervention” and control) so they get the executions*….. *Or, at least the Bibi Netanyahu’s and his Knesset crew; the Jews that run Wall St and the FED, etc, get the justice they deserve! Even Leo agreed, finally, on that!
    This is the HEGELIAN-AWARENESS truth of matters! I do not think Lasha can comprehend this sort of truth! She, like most, is too black and white and she misses many of the shades in-between and the extended shadows being cast. The “shadow” is George Washington’s nightmarish “red clouds” of Jewish-borne evil! George told you they would ruin the USA! So did Jefferson and Franklin!
    Modern Jewish scholars/rabbis write with all the innate powers of their well-crafted dialectics. Have you read their scripts? I have puked up reading them! To a smart Goy they seem insane, which they are, but the rabbis can argue in such a way that the end result justifies absolutely anything! For example: “We want to turn the Ukrainian plains of fertile land into a more productive Communist-controlled area …. hence we have a problem with the peasant kulaks who have long occupied the land …. hence we starve to death 7 million of them … and hence we take over all the land! … hence this is for the common good! …. and hence we have the full support of Western Fabian Socialists and the bulk of the Western media, like Sydney Webb and Beatrix Potter … and hence the British royalty will honor Sydney and Beatrix by placing a brass plaque on the floor of the Christian citadel of evil, Westminster Abbey.
    And so Solzhenitsyn’s “CIRCLE” of crime goes on and onwards! Ditto for the “dust and waste of the desert” Palestinians! Get rid of the lot of them! …. An ignorant monster like Janet O’Mara might as well just put her head in one of Gilby’s milking buckets.
    People, even those who think they are the brightest, just CANNOT understand how the Jews utilize the Jewish/Marxist/Hegelian DIALECTIC. full-on, every day of the week. Watch the Ellen Degeneres show and you will see it used repeatedly. John Stewart is an Hegelian master, as is the Jew-trained and appointed, Obama!
    In the way of a part explanation, take whatever you think is logical, or lets say truthful, and first stand it on its head; then reverse and invert it several times over; then argue a good case for its diametrically opposite (the antithesis); and then advocate the solution that you have chosen. The Jews utilize their control of the modern Western language to encourage the use of their own semantics among those people, like Lasha, who THINK they are critical, independent thinkers. Of course, they are the opposite – inadvertently Jew-controlled because they are part of their self-concocted, dialectically-inspired academia. Hence, my example which infers that this site approves the use of the word SEMITE to describe modern Jews; as, for example, in the dialectical use of the word ANTI-SEMITE to describe a person like me or lobro! This is brainwashed, childish stuff! ….. Hitler would say these people have been captured by the Jews’ construct of ILLOGIC! …. AS captured people of the Jewish language their word is severely compromised; even though they cannot see this, because they are not intelligent enough. Poor beggars and slaves! Read Mein Kampf for a great exposure of the Jewish dialectic and to realize the sheer immensity of Hitler’s intelligence and perception! Do NOT rely on Jewish constructs re Hitler!

    1. maxy, lasha gets it 100% but she is way too nice a person for her own good.
      i say that because i know her well.

      in her goodness, she refuses to accept the reality that jews are antipeople so that their world is like a photographically negative image of the world of people, so trying to explain light and shadow to them gets one nowhere fast.

      and like she said, she is trying to protect us.
      not that it will help, any less than it helped the russian kulaks, what did they do wrong except that they were industrious, productive people of the land.

      like gilby, come to think of it, he is a kulak whom monsanto regards as necessary roadkill.
      soon they will move into sun-bleached fields of estado del pinar del rio and i will be hounded with online offers of gmo cigars that grow directly on the vine like cucumbers.

    2. @ Max
      Well said. Only Hitler said it better. Hitler was the first person by using German ethics, disciplines, spirit and inventiveness to challenge world Jewry. This was what world jewry was afraid of. Some one finally stood up to them. Hitler almost succeeded, but ran out of gas literally. Hitler’s economic miracle would have destroyed the Rothschild Banking Cartel, if his system would have caught on. That is what world jewry tried to prevent by going to war against him to destroy Germany. Goyim competition is anathema. Only jewish power competition is allowed because it still maintains control. World jewry got their other goal as well: a future jewish state. Jewish power also learned from Germany and WW2 on how to refine control over a country. And today America stands as the prime example of that lesson. America today is like a thumb surrounded by a jewish power bandage that can NOT be removed; a cancer that kills the patient before the cancer finally dies. However, do not worry Germany will do it again and again partially succeed by killing the Satanic occultic Talmudists. Only Messianic jews will survive. Thanks, Norbert.

  18. Here, for your information, is an example of Adolf Hitler’s exposure of the Jewish-Hegelian dialectic: Mein Kampf, vol 1, p.53, Hutchinson version.
    HITLER: “For the so-called liberal Jews did not reject the Zionists as non-Jews, but only as Jews with an impractical, perhaps even dangerous, way of publicly avowing their Jewishness. Intrinsically, they remained unalterably of one piece. In short, the apparent struggle between Zionistic and liberal Jews disgusted me….”
    And today the Bolshie (liberal) Jews in our Western academia, play up their Progressiveness and their left wing agenda – multiculturalism, indigenism, equal opportunity and such; whilst their conservative (called NEO-CONS) “hawks” destroy our Western way of life/culture and commit genocide upon the Palestinians and anyone else who stands in their way.
    You cannot understand anything POLITICAL unless you understand the DIALECTIC that is part of the 1984 Animal Farm! …. As in Hitler’s time, the Jews remain “unalterably of one piece, whether Bolshie or NEO-CON! .

    1. @ Max
      Almost sounds like Gilad Atzmon. However, it says that the jews pretend to play off against each other ( as victims) to achieve their goals and confuse the goyim, such that the goyim end up playing off against each other to the goyims demise. Simplistic Hegelian dialectic at its best. Thus jewish power destroys the goyim. That is why you have so many jews that converted to something to confuse the goyim. Brother Nathanael Kapner, Henry Makow, Gilad Atzmon, and Jon Stewart are just some examples. They inform about the truth but pull the wool over your eyes concerning the true hidden agenda. Brother Nathanael, as a jew that converted to orthodox christianity, shows all the jewish tricks and supports Putin as a defender of the faith and the world’s hope. However, Brother Nathanael, fails to mention that even Putin is still part of the jewish power game as a puppet that will still help achieve ultimate jewish power control without the goyim realizing it. Like the wolf in sheeps’ clothing or a Venus Flytrap or Black widow spider or female preying mantis. That is the trick and the game. The example of the businessman that deals with you for profit and sells you the rope that you yourself will hang yourself with. The businessman profited from your life as well as from your death. Boy those Talmudic Pharisees sure knew their business. Was that a good enough explanation Max? Thanks, Norbert.

      1. A very good explanation Norbert! Great to see another intelligent writer on this site! Most impressed!
        Norbert you are very much aware, like lobro.
        And Yes lobro, I love (in an honest sense of humanly love) Lasha Darkmoon. She is one doing so much good in this world. I am hoping, like David Icke, that her WORD moves into the mainstream! Their is a god of wholeness and goodness who opposes the Illuminati satanism of the Jews. Trouble is the latter has been the big destroyer over the last century.
        Lobro, you are correct and you explain it in your brilliant manner: “maxy, lasha gets it 100% but she is way too nice a person for her own good. i say that because i know her well. In her goodness, she refuses to accept the reality that jews are antipeople so that their world is like a photographically negative image…”
        Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all of you. … Now await the trolls’ anger, deceit and and diabolical trollmanship to emerge on this site, in order to set their dialectic going again!

      2. I find it worrying that Putin met with Abbas. Abbas, who recently called for the AL to do to Gaza, that which the KSA is doing to Yemen. Both Abbas, and Hadi, are traitors, to their people, and their countries, and neither is a legitimate authority..

    2. “INTRINSIC”!!

      Talk about yer economy of words

      Hitler on the jews being a race: “….and WHAT a race!”

  19. And here , my dear friends, is the way of the modern, Jewish-orchestrated world, which will become the norm in future years: “Men gang raped unconscious teen on crowded Florida beach.” Yahoo News today!

    1. Similar to an incident which took place on the beach in Tel Aviv a few years ago. Two women tourists saw a crowd, and wondered what was going on. A mentally retarded woman was being passed around, to thunderous applause..

  20. Just a fair counterpoise to Darkmoon and her dumb army of gentiles who make regular claims that the Jews are the only world criminals. As a half Jew, do I think that Jews are a criminal nation? Most definitely yes! Are they hideous recidivists? Absolutely so! BUT, are they the worst, or, in any case, are they the only ones? Most definitely not! Why, see for yourselves! Can’t concentrate on Jews alone, Darkmoon, just can’t. Fair is fair.

    1. And Alan Merc is the “Jewish troll” I said would emerge to try to negate all TRUTH!
      Does he suck you in, Gentiles, with his “fair is fair”? … Love it Gilby? … Good Christian stuff?
      Lobro was correct! Gilby, you are a Kulak! … Your petty belligerence is just that! …. Weak as piss, as is the wheel-chaired PAT-sy! Give us a footrnote you imbecile!
      Yes, this concept of totally illogical “fairness” is their weapon to reduce you to nothingness. Like “equal opportunity.” Like Lord Balfour’s: “Nothing really matters and nothing really matters at all.”
      More to your liking, the Yahoo/cmmm headline? …. “Martin Sheen’s Reaction to Mischa Barton’s Nip Slip is Priceless!”
      Yes a nipple slip is the headline of the day! I saw Beyonce’s right nipple the other day and some of the top of her clitoris! (video clip) Boy she swings that bootie around for all the kids to see!
      Ms Jackson and all the Illuminati controlled girlie celebs are using the device of the nipple slip! Do you wait for it? Does it turn you on? Imagine Janet O’Mara giving a nip slip! (yuk!) …. Imagine Ellie K doing it! (OK I like this idea!)
      And then we have such as Courtney Love utilizing the legs apart, pussy shot! Oh such ugliness and filth!
      All aimed at total degradation of the Goyim!
      Comprehendez my children?

      1. @ Alan Merc
        Fair is Fair! Is that like the book Animal Farm, where all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others. So PIGS are more equal and more previleged than the others. Thus I would say that jewish power is MORE to blame for the world’s ills than anything else. Any other party to blame was probably a jewish invention or jewish false front to hide caulpabiblity. Do I have to mention Marxism: Karl Marx a German Ashkenazi jew of the rabbi class that invented communism. Then Communism used by Bolshevics (foreign and Russian jews) to destroy Christian Russia and the Slavics. Reminds me of today where Putin must be destroyed by the Rothschild Banking cartel.
        Let’s see then we have the civil rights moevement in America in the 1950s and 1960s with Martin Luther King as the front man, but organized by his jewish lawyer, Clarence Jones. These are just 2 examples, so Alan Merc thanks but NO thanks. Jewish power is in it and evil to their necks, anybody else is only up to their ankles. And as shown here even those probably have jewish influence in their evil. Most here know that jewish power is full of division , deception and treachery, directly and indirectly. Alan Merc, a good magician you are NOT! Thanks, Norbert.

    2. sorry to disappoint alan but the bengal famine sounds suspiciously like the ukraine famine.

      east india co? the one whose main business was running shiploads of opium processed in india to china in order to plunder it the way russia was plundered until recently? the ones who after the chinese emperor embargoed further sales of opium devastated the empire using mindless brit goyim’s naval power (“chinese empire is a state sponsor of world terrorism” or something like that, no doubt)

      a jew enterprise from day one, look at the owners, the cannings, sassoons, montefiores, rothschilds, salvadors, the list goes on.

      you couldn’t have chosen a worse example, merc.
      and let’s for the sake of a very brief and artificial argument assume that 1/2 of world’s evil rests on the shoulders of the gentiles, ie, non-jews.
      since jews comprise less than 1% of the world’s population, it follows that an average jew is 100 times more insanely criminal than an average gentile.

      but of course, the real multiplier is more on the level of 10,000 … watch out for that jewish half, alan merc because it may have succeeded in enslaving the gentile half, you don’t want to be half jew and half shabbo.

      i won’t bother

      1. … “i won’t bother” with furnishing links to just how infested the east india co was with jews top to bottom, just do a brief search, there are even jew sources boasting about this glaring fact.

        and if lasha is a man, i will convert to queers, it is well worth the hassle since the feminine hemisphere will lose its finest specimen.

      2. dammit admin, my post above was merely an addendum to my main post which is “awaiting moderation”.
        let’s moderate moderation, ok?

      3. @ lobro

        re comments for moderation

        This is beyond our control, lobro. Totally automatic. If you trigger a key word, you go into moderation automatically.

        I think it works a bit like this:

        (1) If a guy called “Big Mike” is in moderation, then every time you REFER to Big Mike your comment will go into moderation. Even the word “Big” is probably inadvisable! (2) If “Big Mike” has been banned, then every time you refer to Big Mike your comment will go into spam. Fortunately, I now check spam several times a day and am constantly rescuing bone fide posters from spam.

        I hope this has been helpful.

      4. toby, it might be useful for us to know the list of keywords that trigger guantanamo treatment.
        then i could have said instead: “a l a n m e r c” to avoid ignominy of sharing joe’s cell.

      5. . . . and if lasha is a man, i will convert to queers, it is well worth the hassle since the feminine hemisphere will lose its finest specimen.”

        Lasha’s gender as a female is beyond dispute. You only have to read her poetry to see this in love poem after love poem. It so happens, however, that a Muslim writer called Mahmoud El-Yousseph (whose articles have been published on and also on many other sites) revealed in a comment on Mark Glenn’s Ugly Truth site some years ago that he had met Lasha and her sister Lucy in person at some political function in the US about 5-6 years ago. It was a brief but memorable encounter, according to Mr El-Yousseph.

        He confirmed the then rumor going the rounds that Lasha was the spitting image of the silent screen actress Louise Brooks, famous for her femme fatale roles and for acting in a classic movie called “Pandora’s Box.” (It was from the name of this movie, I learned somewhere, that Lasha’s sister Lucy had taken the poster name “Pandora.”)

        Lasha may have looked like Louise Brooks in her mid-twenties but she is now in her mid-thirties and has changed quite a lot. She has become thinner and more austere looking and her hair is incredibly long. Louise Brooks had a page boy hair style…very short cropped hair like this:


        I have reason to believe that this is a spitting image of Lasha in her mid-twenties. This is the avatar she should have chosen. Believe me, this is Lasha as she once was.

      6. Off-topic

        Lasha actually describes herself in one of her comments on this website when she invited Ellie K to meet her at a famous hotel in London. Lasha had to describe herself for Ellie’s benefit. Otherwise Ellie wouldn’t know who to look for in the crowded bar full of strange faces.

        Lasha writes:

        “I copy and paste my invitation to Madame Rothschild. For some reason—a prior engagement perhaps—she was unable to accept my invitation to meet up for dinner and drinks as my guest at Claridges’ Hotel in London:

        October 6, 2014 at 5:53 pm

        Ellie: I will be going up to London in a few weeks’ time. This will be an opportunity to meet if you wish. You have already expressed the desire more than once to meet me in person and have in fact invited me to spend the night as your guest at one of two top London hotels where you retain permanent suites. This sounds exciting.

        However, I don’t want to make a big deal of this or avail myself of your kind hospitality, since I have an aunt in Richmond with whom I will be staying. So what I’m saying is this. If you happen to be in London at that time and wish to meet up with up with me for dinner and drinks as my guest, I will be in Claridges’ Hotel at 7 pm on Saturday 25 October. If you can make it, fine; and if you can’t make it, that’s okay with me.

        7 o’clock then in Claridges bar known as the Fumoir. You will recognize me at once. Tall (5’9″”), slim, not bad looking, long raven hair down to waist, and dressed entirely in black with a gold butterfly brooch studded with rubies and sapphires.

        Pity you don’t have a contactable email address any more, why is why I am forced to make this invitation to you in public.

        Bye for now!


      7. I want to apologize for all these off-topic comments, but I guess they cannot be avoided. I just wanted to clarify that Lasha has not visited London for over 10 years and was dreading the trip up to London. When Ellie turned down her invitation to dinner and drinks at Claridges’ Hotel, Lasha was relieved and canceled her train booking to London at once. She much prefers her reclusive life among the green pastures and thatched cottages of rural Devon.

      8. sard, monty, no need to reassure me, i am perfectly aware that lasha is a woman through and through.

        some vibes cannot be faked.

  21. @ Lasha Darkmoon, who says, in mistaken Latin, ”In Medio Tutissimus,” instead of ”Medio Tutissimus Ibis!” But this is a minor point, and I don’t wish to score any, as I am not a pimple-faced Franklin Ryckaert, but a Lawyer of good standing. And besides, it’s not the middle course that is the safest but the right one, and the difference is great! An aspiring scholar, in my opinion, this Lasha Darkmoon. Strangely, this Lobro sees everything, except what he ought to! Lobro good and reasonably smart, but hideously blind. His imagination has convinced him that Lasha is actually a woman, and the feminine Archetype tends to be far more arresting than a male one. What to do! Such are we!

    Anyway, the Russians may have died by the millions, and very, very tragically and needlessly so, this no one doubts, but everyone seems to overlook the fact that those killings were done by their own fellow Russians and not by the Jews, just as Germany was flattened by the Spitfires of the English and the Germans were run through by the American GI’s, on the ground and not the Jews. The murderous, Talmudic Jewish Brigade, whilst utterly criminal, was not only aided and abetted by the Allies, but were even supplied British and American uniforms so as to better effect their Jewish revenge! And it was the same in Russia. The kulaks, who were murdered by the hundreds of thousands – who was it that bayoneted them? Jews? I don’t think so! It was the bednyak and serednyak peasants who rose to steal the lands of their rich fellow Russian landowners, as well as murder them in the process. Yes, they were fooled by the Jew Trotsky, the arch criminal, but by and large the actual killing was not done by the Jews but by the Russians.

    Although not quite correct, as no such definition actually exists for acts of the same or similar nature, the closest definition of such action is in Legal terms called sua sponte, and yes, the Bolshies willingly took to the streets and willingly carried out those unspeakable brutalities. So again, Jews yes, but not only the Jews. Get your facts straight, Lasha Darkmoon, if you wish to engage my mind and make further comments.

    1. @Alan Merc
      Yes, you are correct about the Bengal Famine. You could also add the Irish “Hungry Forties” and the British Concentration camps during the Boer War. Another Gentile genocide was the Belgian Congo 1897 to 2008. While we are at it we could add the mass deaths caused by Mao in China in adherence with the Jewish Marxist Leninist ideology of a dictatorship of the proletariat( or in Mao’s case peasantry).
      A couple of minor points. Firstly, spitfires were fighter aircraft. The main bomber of the RAF was the Lancaster Bomber. Secondly, how many of the Kulaks were bayoneted? Remember it was a famine. Wouldn’t it be redundant to bayonet them as well? Thirdly, Kaganovitch “directed” the Holodomor in the 30’s, by that time Trotsky was no longer in the USSR having gone in to exile in 1927, if memory serves me correctly.

    2. @ Alan Merc

      Lasha Darkmoon, who says, in mistaken Latin, ”In Medio Tutissimus,” instead of ”Medio Tutissimus Ibis!” But this is a minor point, and I don’t wish to score any, as I am not a pimple-faced Franklin Ryckaert, but a Lawyer of good standing.”

      You haven’t scored a point, Merc. You’ve just made a fool of yourself for trying to suggest that Lasha’s Latin is defective. It is not. Her Latin is perfect!

      “IN MEDIO TUTISSIMUS” is perfect Latin for “In the middle it is safest”, with the word “ibis” (you will go) understood. “In the middle (you will go) the safest.”

      Most of our posters use the same IP number. This allows us to keep better track of them and make sure they are not posting under multiple names. You alone keep using a different IP number every time you make a post. We don’t like this. We regard it as suspicious, because it allows you to post under different names.

      Many of the IP numbers you have used in the past tie up with the IP numbers of at least half a dozen user names on this site. One of these user names had the SAME IP number as one of Ellie’s K’s numerous IP numbers. We regard this as EXTREMELY suspicious.

      What exactly are you up to, “Alan Merc”?

      1. @ Alan Merc





        Here is an IP number shared by both you and “Avantador”: 110.148,178.35. Are you telling me that this is a coincidence?

        Even more suspicious is the fact that one of Avantador’s IP numbers (ie., one of YOUR IP numbers) is ALMOST IDENTICAL to one of Ellie K’s numerous IP numbers.

        We have nothing against you posting provided you abide by the rules — the same rules that apply to all other posters. Malicious, defamatory allegations about Admin or any of our published authors are not permitted.

        If you persist in using different IP numbers, we have no way of knowing if you are not posting under six different names using different IP numbers. You see the problem? Six apparently different people, all using different user names and different IP numbers, could in fact be the SAME PERSON.

        No website can tolerate this. Apart from anything else, it is a security risk. People doing this, we find, are invariably hostile to us or are Zionist trolls.

      3. - which means Max may be a closet faggot, and all the cocksman bravado is just a COVER… Hmmm. Suspicious, indeed… Perhaps ‘Maxine’… (Y’all be careful, or he might slip you the old ‘one eye’ up your backdraft. :( )

      4. Maybe Max is the alter-ego creation of John Montecristo?

        Just a thought. He DID resign as monitor, though ;)

      5. @ Brownhawk

        Montecristo has never been monitor of this website. My predecesor as monitor was my niece Lucy Skipping (Lasha’s sister). She resigned in disgust and I am now stuck with this thankless job.

        My policy is simple: to let almost every comment pass through the net, except those that make malicious or defamatory statements about Admin or any of our authors.

        It’s OK to criticize an author’s work and point out his/her factual errors and stylistic shortcomings, but it is NOT permissible to say things like: “Paul Craig Roberts is a pedophile working for Mossad” — or “John Kaminski is a homosexual ex-convict” — or “Lasha Darkmoon is a lesbian midget.”

        We have to draw the line somewhere. :)

      6. @ lobro

        Hey, I approved your comment as soon as I saw it. Can’t be at my desk 24/7! Took 4 hours off for lunch and exercise. If posters go into moderation after I have gone to bed, their posts have to wait overnight until I wake up in the morning. So there’s quite a long delay overnight.

      7. But, Toby –

        You let that Maxine always make defamatory comments about ME – and I’M an ‘author’… ! (boo-hoo) :(

        From now on, I think I will post as ‘Kulak’, or ‘Cornbread’ – or some such. (We peasants are allowed a little latitude, aren’t we??? It’s only FAIR. :) )

      8. Sorry Toby, I meant former editor…..I think, or is he still the editor? I get confused. A form of dyslexia perhaps?

        nonetheless, my comment was purely tongue-in-cheek, for which this site is notorious (in a good way of course ;)

      9. About static IP addresses.

        I also change IP address whenever I switch off then on my modem/router. In our area, the guarantee of a permanent IP address would be charged extra. Maybe it’s different in the US. I occasionally do this as one of the little tricks to confuse tracking by a third-party, although obviously not enough. Just to know.

    4. @Merc

      That non-jews are complicit, yes. But this is an area where you and others aren’t getting Max’s meaning of “intrinsic” applied to jews per Hitler’s observation.

      Ultimately this is the parasitic, corrupting nature of “jewmind” which riles up and creates the state of disquietude that brings out the worst in a humanity where corruption is INFERRED by our existence in this material reality; removed from our spiritual homes.

      Who among us is not getting this? – the truthful revelation of Christ

  22. @Alan Merc
    One other point and I am sure you will agree with me on this. The board of the British East India Company based in Leadenhall Street, London was most certainly controlled by Freemasons, a secret society based Jewish arcanum, supposedly going back Solomon’s temple. Basically Hebraic mumbo jumbo. Freemasonry is in effect Jewry for Gentiles. May I respectively suggest that you, my learned friend, conduct some internet research on the deleterious effects Freemasonry had on Britain’s colonial endeavours and still exercises on the Anglo-Saxon countries.

    1. Felix –

      I agree on Masonic Pharisees.

      Jews’ Quotes on Masonry:

      THE REALIZATION that masonry’s “public face” is a tissue of lies and distortions will cause many to wonder who is behind this foul organization. The simple answer, whether one like it or not, is the Jews. And in the past they have gleefully proclaimed that fact to the world. They cannot help themselves but to boast about what is their grand doing. Here are a few selected comments which support this contention to the hilt.

      “There were cabalistic Jews around the cradle of Freemasonry, as certain rites still in existence prove conclusively.” – Bernard Lazare in Anti-Semitism.

      “The most important duty of a freemason must be to glorify the Jewish race.” – Le Symbolisme (1928).

      “Freemasonry is based on Judaism. Eliminate the teachings of Judaism from the masonic ritual and what is left?” – Jewish Tribune USA (1927).

      “Freemasonry is a Jewish establishment whose history, grades, official appointments, passwords and explanations are Jewish from beginning to end.” – Rabbi Isaak Wise (1855).

      “Jewish ritual is customary and valid in all freemasonic lodges of the world.” – Brother Rudolph Klien, Grand Lodge of Saxony.

      “The spirit of freemasonry is that of Judaism in its most fundamental beliefs; its ideas are Judaic, its language is Judaic, its very organization is almost Judaic.” – La Verite Israelite, Paris (1861).

      “The ideas of freemasonry originated from the Jewish epoch. Words and designations were taken mostly from the Hebrew.” – Dr. Gustav Karpeles, B’nai B’rith (1902).

      “I have given sufficient illustrations to support the deduction that masonry, as a system of symbolism, rests entirely on a foundation which is essentially hebraic.” – B. Shillman, Hebraic Influences on Masonic Symbolism.

      Referring to the ‘coat of arms’ of the Grand Lodge of England, Lucien Wolf, the Jewish historian wrote:
      “The coat is entirely composed of Jewish symbols.” – Transaction of the Jewish Historical Society of England.
      Some have wondered about the letter ‘G’ in Masonry:
      The letter “G” figures prominently in Freemasonry. In the lower degrees, the initiate is told that this letter stands for “God” and for “Geometry”, which the Supreme Architect of the Universe used to design this wonderful Cosmos. However, occultist, and 33rd Degree Mason, Arthur Waite, quotes Eliphas Levi [also 33rd Degree], telling us that the letter “G” stands for Venus, and that Venus’ symbol is a lingam, a stylized phallis. [Masonic author, Arthur Edward Waite, The Mysteries of Magic: A Digest of the Writings of Eliphas Levi , Chicago, , DeLaurence, Scott, and Company, 1909, p. 217]

      The greatest Masonic author of all time, Albert Pike, agrees. He states [page 631-32 in Morals and Dogma ] that the Monad [#1] is male, and the Duad [#2] is female. Their sexual union produces the Triad [#3], which is “represented by the letter ‘G’, the generative principle”. This term, “generative principle”, is code for the sex act.

      1. Pat,
        Thanks for those quotes! The learned Mr Marc didn’t even realise you can’t bomb anything with a spitfire. “If you want to a good liar, you must have a good memory!”

      2. Pat –

        Can you tell us anything about all those little symbols on the burial apron used by higher degrees? I have one, which was my father’s, and he did NOT want to be buried in it, nor did he wear his ring, later in life. He would not tell ‘why’. Also, I have a large (about 10×10 inches), old, bronze-cast ‘G’ on compass&square, on scarlet satin, mounted in a shadow box, which seems very old. It came down through the ‘Gilbert’ branch of my family, and I found it in a trunk in the attic of one of the old houses. Anything in particular about that, besides just being an old relic?

      3. “G”, as in “g-spot”, or “g-string”.
        “Venus” as in “venereal” (sexual intercourse)
        “lingam”, a “stylized” phallus, or clitoris (speaking of g-spot) as in “cunnilingus”

  23. Toby, please don’t misunderstand me, I honestly have absolutely nothing against you, nor am I being sly or anything. The explanation I gave you about the IP’s really is like that. I just prefer to use an anonymous VPN when I am in online forums and websites, that’s all. I don’t believe this should be construed as suspicious. Remember: I agree with 90% of both your and your poster’s views, so at my end everything is above board, I assure you.

    1. If ya believe this rubbishy excuse from Mr Mercedes Benz (trying not to use key words) then you would believe in fairies at the bottom of the garden!~ He has abused the system and it was me who forewarned he was a troll! The fact that he has posted from the ip of that lady whose name rhymes with belly is all ye need to know! He is probably that horrible stalker bloke! Ban him now! Look at how he has wasted so much time on this site already!

  24. Another excellent book to read is Juri Lina’s “Under the Sign of the Scorpion.” But only if you have a strong stomach.
    When reading this well-sourced book, at times, I could only read a few pages before putting the book down, due to all the images it brings up of savagely brutal, blood-thirsty acts by the ‘Tribe.’ No wonder there’s so many Jews in the professions of psychology and psychiatry.

    There’s also a Youtube page that has some videos on this subject at:

    1. @Greg Bacon
      Thanks for the suggesting that book. I’ve already downloaded it. BTW, I am not a squeamish sort, as I am inured to seeing dead bodies and nothing fazes me. I have been to a couple of hundred post mortems and have had to wrap bodies in plastic for shipment to mortuaries. In fact, I have donated my body to a medical college for the med students to have some fun in dissecting it. You’d be amazed at the “creative” manner in which people get themselves killed.

  25. Just so we’re clear, lobro (and please pardon the redundancy) There is no “pie in the sky”, where death would provide a cure for ignorance. Dwelling in a realm of Truth means “matter” is experienced as an orientation of spirit.

    Where the “earth” meets the “sky”

  26. The Jew.

    They aren’t a race. They are a religious group, or should I say a cult. I keep hearing about the Jewish race when there isn’t one. I’m tire of hearing the ‘new’ definition of race which embodies culture, religion and nationality as that’s bollox. Considering that the majority of Jews are Ashkenazi and converted to Phariseeism from penis worship and there are Ethiopian, Messianic, Karaite, Chinese etc Jews, then it proves Judaism ISN’T a race.

    What are Jews?
    They’re a cult; an ethnocentric, supremacist, highly prejudice people who are so because it’s hammered into them while young, by their parents and rabbis from a very young age. The mantra of You are a Jew, a chosen one and one who is above all non Jews is what makes the Jew the Jew. The Jewish religion is no different to white or black supremacism. The only difference is, it’s not frowned upon like the others, but worse, openly accepted, because they own the msm and academia that brainwashed people into thinking it’s ok. In a nutshell, this teaching should simply be removed from western society, either that remove them. Simple.

    1. Why split hairs, Harbinger? What’s the purpose?

      Words have multiple definitions, among which are –

      Race: “Any group of people more or less distinct” And we can certainly agree that there is that which distinguishes “jew”

      or, [F, group of people, generation]

      The implications being that the word doesn’t NECESSARILY have to denote humans distinguished by genetically transmitted physical characteristics.

      Advice to all: save the ivory tower babble of useless intellectualism

      1. Brownhawk,

        By allowing the definition of Jews to be racial, it means therefore that Christians, Muslims, Zoroastrians, Buddhists, Taoists et all are also a race. Now you and I both know that is NOT true.

        Jews behave as Jews do, not because they’re a distinct race, but because of their teaching into believing they are what they are. It’s got nothing whatsoever to do with splitting hairs but realising that the Jewish makeup is so because of the ethnocentric, supremacist beliefs that they hold.

      2. There’s a difference between “distinct race” and making a distinction where “race” is completely irrelevant

        Again, where’s the usefulness?

    2. Why not go to the heart of the difference? Christians accept and perceive the reality of what JC called ‘the kingdom of heavens’. Buddhists, Hindus, Sufis, etc. do too. Jews do not accept it, they want their kingdom right here on this plane of existence. All that is said on the Jews derives from that.

      When I explained this to my little daughter, she didn’t fall for it. She told me: Ok Dad, that was 2000 years ago. But today, what is the difference between a Christian and a Jew? Thinking about it, when we look at the way we behave and fall into any trap …

  27. while my erstwhile reply to a merc AWAITS MODERATION (get the hint, toby, i said: “AWAITS MODERATION”) and it only been languishing for about 4 hours in the dank cell of the moderation dungeon, i want to say this:

    mr. merc, i think you are winding us up, just to enjoy hysterical reaction, like zak does.
    surely you knew exactly who engineered the bengal famine (and who is behind hundreds of thousands of indian farmer suicides today, leaving millions of mothers and children destitute).
    hint: it ain’t non-jews
    and your learned and talented friend, whose name i will not mention lest it land this one in moderation as well (admin should publish the list of keywords that trigger the trapdoor), would have corrected you by now.
    woulda-shoulda …

    best to play it safe, so when you stub your toe, start cursing jews because the chances are 50% that the hurt toe belongs to your gentile half and the jew half is laughing, having set it up.

    1. Lobro, I know you are a FAR more learned man than I – but what is the advantage of constant hate?? I try to get along with most everybody – Jews, niggers, wetbacks, etc. – EVERYBODY. Even Maxine… Usually, I SUCCEED…

      I have little doubt you could sway me (wish I had the priviledge of your company, right now) to see it all your way – but why should we bother?? Life is so short, and I tarnished my own health just WORRYING about it. Believe me, the issues aren’t worth it. We live, we die, then nobody remembers us unless we write Declarations of Independence, or paint masterpieces (and those people are already dead, and know nothing about what IS…).

      John Henry Newman said it best. Look it up.

      1. what is the advantage of constant hate

        it burns off cellulite or something, gilby.
        and i always carry a yoga pill as antidote in case i overdose on hate …

  28. @ Alan Merc
    Most other posterers have said it well. Generally , if other entities are responsible for evil, their evil and deception is as deep as a green onion (superficial), whereas jewish power evil is like a red, yellow or white onion. Those onions are full of layers and makes it difficult to blame jewish power directly. Thus if you blame other entities, most likely you have not dug deep enough to find the real perpetrators. Just like Mossad’s motto: By way of deception thou shalt do war. That deception is deep , multifaceted and not just in war. An example would be the JFK assassination. The patsy, Lee Harvey Oswald, had such a diverse background and life history, that anything and everything was blamed for the assassination: communists, Russians, military, the mob etc. In reality it was an inside job: LBJ, Bush Sr. CIA and jewish power so JFK could not implement his Greenback sans FED and prevent Israel from obtaining nuclear weapons. That was why JFK was killed. All other reasons are just the cover story. Gee, sounds like the same MO for 9/11. Think about it Alan Merc, thanks, Norbert.

  29. Most excellent article, Lasha…

    I too am sick of the “Jews are a race” bullshit that too many people waste their time arguing about…

    Jews are a cult… A multiracial and internationalist CULT….. Their cohesiveness rests upon an understanding across the cult that they must act as a distinct unit and a very united unit…. They work as a collective for their greater goals and they all are taught from an early age to absolutely hate the rest of mankind.. Their children are brainwashed into believing they are superior to the rest of mankind…

    The danger to all of us is that their collective “hive” has now achieved their goals and they are ready to pull the plug on the entire world economies and cause them to come crashing down.. Once the bottom is reached THEY will come forward with THEIR solution which will be their one world government, one world currency, with THEM in control…. They will put their seat of world power in Jerusalem as they have always stated as their clear goal, and thus complete world domination will be achieved…

    Is everyone ready for perpetual enslavement for the rest of time?

  30. It’s quite a luxury, being able to sit on my front porch and read y’all’s carryings-ons. I wish Pat would tell me about those images. I check-in here when I’m alone – and I don’t FEEL alone… It’s hard to tell what I’d write to y’all if I finish these two bottles of wine, here, so I have to be careful. (Kulack secrets are ‘secrets’ – no matter HOW mundane and inconsequential!)

    Maxine, are your panties in a wad, yet?? Maybe you ARE in the Land Down Under…(?)
    If you’re a REAL man, you would very much appreciate the sweet lil’ honey I have coming to visit, tonight. A MAN doesn’t have to have multiple women to prove himself. One (the RIGHT one) will do. It seems you’re enamoured with the WRONG ones, dufus. I, myself, like ‘Ellie’ because of her versatility and verbiage. I really don’t give-a-damn about her money (although she seems to have a lot more than any of us). I just like her. You probably would never understand. More, even, do I like Lasha Darkmoon. I pretend she is REAL. Maybe she isn’t – but I wish she WOULD be… Haven’t you ever had a woman who is special, Maxy? Wouldn’t it be nice???

    Read that Vedic stuff. It’s good for you, fuckwad.

  31. Gentiles were critical to the success of the Jew’s Christian movement. Saul, or Paul, needed gentiles to fill out the ranks of the tiny core of Jewish followers insufficient to assure the continuance of the Christian movement. This is a general principle of Jewish religious activity in a Diaspora situation: Because Jews tend to constitute a tiny percentage of a society, they need to make alliances with non-Jews whose perceived interests dovetail with theirs. Non-Jews have a variety of reasons for being associated with Jewish interests, including career advancement, close personal relationships or admiration for individual Jews, and deeply held personal convictions.

    The above statement is critical to understanding why Christianity developed in the manner it did. What I wrote is a slight modification of Dr. MacDonald’s statement in the article. What he states with concise perfection about Soviet Jews, is exactly what I have been saying for years about Christianity’s founder, Paul.

    Saul was the quintessential Jewish opportunist. When he realized the inevitability of the destruction of the Temple system that supported him, he switched sides to the rebel opposition in both name and religious beliefs. In this change, he realized the opportunity to seize leadership over the emerging religious revolt begun by Jesus. Thus he would be propelled from being a mere, low level, cog in the Temple system to exalted poobah of a new religion named for a resurrected messiah.

    Saul based this new religion on the resurrection of the Christ, apparently, the only aspect of the original movement he was aware of or embraced. Saul indicates no knowledge of any of the later gospel stories, nor does he show any personal knowledge of his “savior’s” philosophies. Yet, he repeatedly states how the resurrection of Jesus was demonstrable proof for the validity his claims for the dead Messiah’s godhood.

    Again, this looks like a later interpretation by first century biographers as Jesus makes scant, highly questionable references to his being the “son of god.” Unlike later Christian beliefs, never does Jesus make any claim to godhood. This facile assumption is derived from the “trinity,” however, as one Jew noted with usual piercing intellect, father and son denote a specific relationship between separate entities, how can one be one’s Father and son at the same time? As for the holy ghost, one can only guess what was intended by the authors of this late, fourth century, piece of fiction passed into law during the Nicene Council in AD 381.

    In two of the gospel accounts, when the kohein gadol, Caiaphas, puts Jesus to the question, “are you the son of God,” Jesus essentially replies, “if you say so”. Only in Mark’s account does he reply, “Damn straight I am!” (No doubt my quotes are as valid as any of the other second hand quotes found in the red letter gospels)

    Luke 22:70 “Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And (shrugging his shoulders) he said unto them, Ye say that I am.”

    Mark 22:61 – “But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.” Note after saying “I am” he immediately cross-references to being the Son of man NOT the son of god.

    Matthew 26:6 – “But Jesus held his peace, And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God. (Rolling his eyes) Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses?”

    Again Jesus claims merely to be “the son of man,” an outright refutation to the Sanhedrin charge of his claim to being the son of god.

    Jesus’ supposed claim to godhood is stated long after the fact by authors who never actually heard his words or spoke to him. These quotes are the work of gospel authors trying mightily to validate their claim of Jesus’ messianic assignment, as opposed to any actual statements or claims Jesus might have made. Such statements are aligned to the specific agenda of a later time and are often construed to be unrelated to Jesus’ intended goal of countering the Temple’s sacrificial system.

    Essentially Christianity was yet another attempt by opportunistic Jews to usurp the ruling power of the day. As usual, the story of Jesus is all about Jews; one written by Jews, for Jews, about Jews. “Gentiles” only come into consideration when necessity requires their support to flesh out a grab for power, as is the case for every Jewish “revolution.” To paraphrase a popular Jewish meme of the sixties taken from Carl Sandburg, – What if Jews gave a revolution and no gentiles came?

    1. Prisonplanet dealing in Jew Truth??? I need a drink. Solzhenitsyn goes to great lengths to share the blame for the Jew’s butchery of Russia, but the fundamental fact is that it wouldn’t have happened without Jew Financing and psychotic JEW butchers. JEW Western media did yeoman’s work lying to the Western public. And still do.

  32. The “Son of Man” is a Messianic term from the OT.

    The Gospel of John declares him to be God. That was the point of his Gospel. The other Gospels reveal that he could control nature, heal blindness, and raise the dead. Also, and more importantly, He forgave sin. These are acts of God.

    1. @Leo

      Well said about “Son of Man”, and forgiveness of sin. Add conquering death to that.

      Concerning the other items of controlling nature, healing the sick, and raising the dead, I personally know people that do that which inspired me to try to find out how it works. What my research revealed was that those items are part of God’s law given to everyone since the beginning of time for the benefit of your fellowman. Jesus not only demonstrated how it worked, he told his first 70 disciples to go and do as well which they did.

      Unfortunately, the Gospels are not very clear about how all men have access to this law, but I have discovered also that the Gospels have been monkeyed with in a few important ways. Also, the establishment churches lead everyone to believe that they cannot participate in using this law or imply its use only in a reversed fashion of qualification. I suspect most of the misleading is due to ignorance. I guess you have to be a little weird like me to even consider investigating a law that has no name.

      Anyway, the nameless law works for anyone that has a mustard seed of belief. One basic rule is that it cannot be used to harm your fellowman, to show off, or to do something that you are capable of doing on your own.

      A lot more could be said, but I will leave it at this before I get carried away.

      Thanks for your post.

  33. Gilby, hope ya have a good night with your “sweet lil’ honey I have coming to” ….. where?
    You mean your run down log cabin in the mountains where the rednecks and in-bred ferals hang out!
    Is she your sister or cousin? And you had the audacity to invite the classy Ellie K to your lousy humpy!
    What rubbish Gilby: “If you’re a REAL man, you don’t have to have multiple women to prove himself.”
    Where did you get this lil’ sheila? From the back of a packet of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes packet?
    I travel the world and only take out the cream of the sheilas.
    What is the name of the lonely hearts club you are in? I’ll look you up. I expect to see a redneck with a desperate, degenerate look on his face; asking to partner old-boilers~!
    And Gilby, what rubbish you write when you are pissed, which is obviously quite often? You say: “It’s hard to tell what I’d write to y’all if I finish these two bottles of wine, here, so I have to be careful.”
    You should be breath-tested before you are allowed to hit the computer keyboard. Lobro was right – you are the kind of kulak the Jews will lerv bringing to justice. By the way, this Alan Merc is the criminal Jew, troll agent I warned you of! Why don’t you invite him to ya cabin Gilby? He’d be better than one of your daggy ewes!

  34. Arch Stanton you are correct! Christianity, with all its ridiculous denominations and rules, is a Jewish creation to serve Jewish interests. It intentionally creates confusion and conflict between the subject Gentile majority. Because the Jews know it is all theirs’, they can manipulate it any way they like. One minute they can have Goys murdering each other, or anyone else so designated, and the next they can have them in one big love-in; like Gilby reckons he is doing tonight with his “sweet lil’ honey”, cousin!~
    I have subscribed to a Yankee Christian-Zionist group’s magazine, just so that I can get a little more familiar with their take on matters. Yep, I’m looking at their “Christian Singles” columns! Is this where Gilby gets ‘em? I’m reading a sheila’s advertisement where she describes herself as “cuddly.” Wot does this mean? And here is a bloke who has done time looking for a devout Christian lady with her own home and financial independence.
    I’m writing an ad calling myself “Gilby Huffington”, asking for a slim, attractive 40 yr old, who wants a farmer husband. Will pass the ugly ones over to the REAL gilby!

  35. It all comes down to the yin and the yang – darkness versus light; or good versus evil. The eternal battle of the gods; or the monotheistic god (such as he of the cosmos) versus his devil adversary/ies.
    Good prince/ good son of man/the Father VERSUS the licentious, murdering, fornicating, usuring, bastardizing, cussing Black Prince.
    The Jews opted for worship of their handsome, dilettantish, Black Prince, or bad angel with mud and sacrificial blood on his wings.
    The Old Testament makes this clear! Their worship of the bad prince/god has allowed them runaway success on our planet. Seems most people (Goys included) like/adore the bad fella. Hence, nearly all TV is about the machinations of the baddies. We love them! Look at how ya wives and Gilby’s new galfriend adore the man-hungry whores of Sex and the City. Most of the tarts I go out with are copying Amanda and such, even the scene where Amanda gets down on her knees in front of the mirror and sucks a lot!
    And then along came the son of man – YHWH’s son! …. I’ve told ya how he entered the Temple and was most rude to his hosts! He swore and he cussed and told them they would be thrust into the Lake of Fire and Eternal Damnation! He told all the multitudes to clean up their act, or I’ll have to “die for your sins.” Of course, they kept on murdering, fornicating, usuring, bastardizing, cussing, just like the bad angel! …. Then the Jew bosses of the Temple told Roman Pilate to kill this “impostor” and “Egyptian magician.” (aka Talmud) So they killed Jesus, as his Father had planned all along, and all our sins were forgiven – then, now and into the future. Great stuff!
    So Gilby, give your all to your “sweet lil’ honey” this evening, because Jesus died for the sins ya are doin’ and tomorro ya will be forgiven. But get out of bed first!

    1. Max(ine??) –

      Top of the morning to you! She’s very happy, and in the kitchen making breakfast for me. Just has on a terry-cloth robe – nothing more. Too bad for you that you have to spend so much money and make so much effort… (It must be very belittling to your ego – which explains your bravado) (honestly – you’re not faggity, are you?).

      Haven’t decided when I’ll get out of bed, today. She has a girlfriend who might come over.
      Oh, btw, I was baptized years ago. ‘One baptism’ is the ONLY way to go! It wouldn’t surprise me one bit to learn that you’re a damn heathen, and don’t know any better. :(
