Jews and Communism
by Der Stürmer
“Not a single one of the doctrines of Marx has ever been accepted by any economist or any philosopher. But what of it? It was necessary that Gaiseric should convince economists or philosophers that there were sound reasons why he should capture Rome. He and his followers wanted it, and they had the power to take it.” (Professor Thomas Nixon Carver, Introduction to Socialism vs. Civilization, by Boris Brasol, p. 10, Charles Scribner’s Sons, New York, 1920).
“The class consciousness of the masses must be transformed into action and class power; and the arming of the masses is the form of expression of this transformation, the instrument for conquering the bourgeoisie and crushing counter-revolutionary manoeuvers…The proletariat alone is the revolutionary force, the proletariat alone msy wage the uncompromising struggle for the overthrow of Capitalism, the proletariat alone is the maker and the preserver of the Revolution; and it is necessary that this proletariat shall be armed, that it shall itself directly, consciously, energetically and dynamically, constitute the state, the army, the police and th ejudiciary, shall itself usurp and discharge the functions of the ‘state.'” (Jewish Italian Communist Louis C. Fraina, thecounder of the American Communist Party, Boston, The Revolutionary Age Publishers, p. 49).
“…An exact representation of the universe, of its evolution, of the development of mankind and of the reflection of this evolution in the minds of men, can only be obtained by methods of dialectics.” (Socialism: Utopian and Scientific, p. 48).
“I cannot help feeling that Communism, whatever its exponents may say, has recovered that essential core of a real belief in God, which organized Christianity has in our day largely lost.” (A Program for the Jews and Humanity, Harry Waton, p. 125).
“Our bourgeois philanthropy, whatever form it may take, is really only the effort to give back to the workers a little part of that which our whole social system, systematically, robs them of, and so to prop up that system yet a little longer…
It is the workers who produce all values, but the lion’s share of what they produce falls to the lion, the capitalist class, and enables the capitalist arbitrarily to decide what he will do with it and whether or not he will use a part of the spoils for the good of the despoiled, a part of the plunder for the good of the plundered; and, however, disinterestedly individual men and women may devote themselves to this task of restitution, the fact remains that, for the capitalist class as a whole, all philanthropic effort is a work of restitution for self- preservation…
Shall I cast my lot with the oppressors, content to patch and darn, to piece and cobble at the worn and rotten fabric of a perishing society? Shall I spend my life in applying palliatives, in trying to make the intolerable endurable yet a little longer?…Shall I not rather make common cause with these, my brothers and sisters, to make an end of such a system?…
As loyal members of the ruling class, our work must, I repeat, be merely palliative. For a radical cure of the social disease means the end of the system of exploiting the workers…Another of the indispensable books is ‘The Condition of the Working Class in England,’ by Frederick Engels, which is especially valuable for American readers, because the conditions described in it as they prevailed in England at the time of its appearance in Germany are reproduced upon a still larger scale in America now, at the moment of its publication in an English translation. It is the best introduction to the study of modern scientific political economy and of the fundamental work par excellence thereof, ‘Capital,’ by Karl Marx.” (Address by Florence Kelley, May 14, 1887, before the New York Association of Collegiate Alumnae, entitled “The Need of Theoretical Preparation for Philanthropic Work.”)
“The Jews welcome this revolution in the Christian world, and the Jews should show an example. It is not an accident that Judaism gave birth to Marxism, and it is not an accident that the Jews readily took up Marxism: all this was in perfect accord with the progress of Judaism and the Jews.” (A Program for the Jews and Humanity, by Rabbi Harry Waton, p. 148).
“The Communists are against religion (Christianity), and they seek to destroy religion; yet, when we look deeper into the nature of Communism, we see that it is essential nothing else than a religion (Judaism).” (A Program for the Jews and Humanity, Harry Waton, p. 138).
“But the Communist soul is the soul of Judaism. Hence it follows that, just as in the Russian revolution the triumph of Communism was the triumph of Judaism, so also in the triumph of fascism will triumph Judaism.” (A Program for the Jews and Humanity, Harry Waton, pp. 143-144).
“While professing to be ‘profoundly disturbed’ by the aggression of anti-Semitic Germany, Roosevelt continued his special friendship for Soviet Russia after its attacks upon Outer Mongolia, Poland, Latvia, Esthonia, Lithuania and Finland. Professing an adoration for ‘democracy’ he refused, as the Jews control 90 percent of the scrap iron business, to invoke the Neutrality Act against Japan in its war on China, or against Russia when, with Germany, she invaded Poland and attacked Finland. He extended a warm welcome to the Communist Ambassador Oumansky when he presented his credentials and, on the same day, displayed marked coldness toward the newly appointed Ambassador from Christian Spain.” (War! War! War!, Cincinnatus, p. 152).
“The founding prophet of the leftist faith, Karl Marx, was born in 1818, the son of a Jewish father who changed his name from Herschel to Heinrich and converted to Christianity to advance his career. The young Marx grew into a man consumed by hatred for Christianity.
Internationalizing the worst antichrist stereotypes, he incorporated them into his early revolutionary vision, identifying Jews as symbols of the system of private property and bourgeois democracy he wanted to further. ‘The god of the Jews had been secularized and has become the god of this world,’ Marx wrote. ‘Money is the jealous god of the Jews, beside which no other god may stand.’ Once the Revolution succeeds in ‘destroying the empirical essence of Christianity, he promised, ‘the Jew will become the rulers of the world. This early Marxist formulation is the transparent seed of the mature vision, causing Paul Johnson to characterize Marxism as ‘the antichristian of the intellectuals.’
The international Communist creed that Marx invented is a creed of hate. The solution that Marx proposed to the Christian ‘problem’ was to eliminate the system that ‘creates’ the Christian. The Jews, he said, ‘are only symptoms of a more extensive evil that must eradicate capitalism. The Jews are only symbols of a more pervasive enemy that must be destroyed; capitalists.’
In the politics of the left, racist hatred is directed not only against Christian capitalists but against all capitalists; not only against capitalists, but anyone who is not poor, and who is White; and ultimately against Western Civilization itself. The Marxist revolution is antichrist elevated to a global principle.” (David Horowitz, Human Events).
“Religion is one of the forms of the spiritual yoke which always and everywhere has been laid on the masses of the people crushed by poverty. The weakness of the exploited classes, in their struggles with their oppressors, inevitably produced a faith in a better life in the next world, just as the weakness of the savage in the struggle with nature led to faith in gods, devils and miracles. Religion teaches such men, who work and endure poverty all their lives, humility and patience by holding out the consolation of a heavenly reward. But the exploiters are urged by faith to do good on earth, because in this way they think to win justification for their existence and a sort of ticket of admission to heavenly bliss. Religion is an opiate for the people, a sort of spiritual vodka, meant to make the slaves of capitalism tread in the dust their human form and their aspirations to a semi- decent existence…But the slave who becomes conscious of his slavery has already half ceased to be a slave. The modern worker, who is taught by his work in the factory and enlightened by urban life, contemptuously casts off religious prejudices, and leaves heaven to the parsons and devout bourgeois, while he himself tries to win a better life here on earth.” (V.I. Lenin, Socialism and Religion, Rene Fueloep Miller, The Mind and Face of Bolshevism, pp. 77-78).
“In the U.S.S.R. Judaism and Christianity have been buried together. They sleep in the common grave reserved for all religions. The Communists have made no difference between cults…Their philosophy was scientific materialism, they denied the value of all religion, thus they struck at Judaism as at all religions. It is forbidden to give religious instruction to children under eighteen. At school it is explained to the pupils that they will betray the revolution if they put foot within the church or synagogue. With the result that the synagogues are empty…Zionism is banned. To the Communist Zionism is doubly reprehensible, first because they believe it to be in the service of Zionism is severely punished; Zionists have been imprisoned, exiled, and even shot. The suppression of Zionism and of religion (continues the editor) was a great tragedy for the Jewish spirit… The children, victorious, pursue their object (Communism) with the certainty of having chosen a superior mode of Life.” (L’Universe-israÇlite, September 7-14, 1934).
“Use the courts, use the judges, use the constitution of the country, use its medical societies and its laws to further our ends. Do not stint in your labor in this direction. And when you have succeeded you will discover that you can now effect your own legislation at will and you can, by careful organization, by constant campaigns about the terrors of society, by pretense as to your effectiveness, make the capitalist himself, by his own appropriation, finance a large portion of the quiet Communist conquest of that nation.” (Address of the Jew Laventria Beria, The Communist Textbook on Psychopolitics, page 8).
“…there is much in the fact of Bolshevism itself. In the fact that so many Jews are Bolsheviks. In the fact that the ideals of Bolshevism are consonant with the finest ideals of Judaism.” (The London Jewish Chronicle, April 4, 1919)
“Some call it Marxism — I call it Judaism.” (The American Bulletin, Rabbi S. Wise, May 5, 1935).
“Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels,” Weyl writes, “were neither internationalists nor believers in equal rights of all the races and peoples. They opposed the struggles for national independence of those races and peoples that they despised. They believed that the ‘barbaric’ and ‘ahistoric’ peoples who comprised the immense majority of mankind had played no significant role in history and were not destined to do so in the foreseeable future.” (Karl Marx, by Nathaniel Weyl).
“We are living in a highly organized state of socialism. The state is all; the individual is of importance only as he contributes to the welfare of the state. His property is only his as the state does not need it. He must hold his life and his possessions at the call of the state.” (Bernard M. Baruch, The Knickerbocker Press, Albany, N.Y. August 8, 1918)
“If the tide of history does not turn toward Communist Internationalism then the Jewish race is doomed.” (George Marlen, Stalin, Trotsky, or Lenin, p. 414, New York, 1937)
