Given That Marxists Murdered Millions of Their Compatriots, Why Are Jews So Often Marxist?

If we needed more proof that American “liberals” and Progressives are out-and-out Communists, “more than 600 different” such “groups”  who happen to be Jewish “published” “An open letter in support of the Black Lives movement” in the New York Slimes last month. In it, they equate those Marxist riots with the battle over Civil Rights in the 1960s.

And they’re correct: “civil rights” is a totalitarian perversion of freedom that deceives far too many organizations and people who otherwise uphold liberty. 

Robert Katz not only alerted me to this nauseating “letter,” he eloquently scolds its authors. Robert’s written me before; I thought he’d mentioned once that he’s Jewish. I asked him to confirm that ethnicity to lend his excoriation of these sociopaths greater “cred.” He answered, “My nationality … is Liberty. I think of myself as a Jeffersonian American.”

Yep, that explanation misted my eyes, too. As did his tirade against these organizations:

Dear 600-plus Jewish groups: BLM is a domestic terrorist group. Fooling yourself into perverting their visible battlegrounds of looting, violence, and vandalism into poppy fields of beneficent protests is a revolt against nature and a sin against mankind. So doing certifies you as useful idiots or apprentice despots, probably both. You support, unequivocally, a terrorist organization that has resolved to obliterate the American family, culture, and history. It’s logical to presume groups supporting terrorists are themselves terrorists (would non-terrorists support terrorists?) As is BLM, your role model, you are, unequivocally, stupid, ignorant, perverted, debased, immoral, obscene, vile, and wicked. Yours truly, Robert Katz.

Join me in a standing O!

Meanwhile, Mr. Anonymous sent me some extracts from a book explaining why so many American Marxists hail from wealthy families, a la Clara Kraebber:

The initial funds for the setting up of the Marxist schools were, ironically enough, contributed by wealthy business people who were personally invited to attend dinners at the homes of other men of wealth. They came to hear Earl Browder [chief of the Communist Party] analyze current events and predict the future with emphasis on the role the Party would play. …

There is no doubt that Earl Browder … was close to the seats of world power in those days, and that he knew better than most Americans what was going on, except insofar as events were warped and refracted by his Marxist ideology. The men who paid their hundred-dollar admissions and contributed thus to the school funds became part of the group which Earl Browder was to call the “progressive businessmen,” meaning those who were willing to go along on an international program of communism. The lure was attractive: expanded profits from trade with the Soviets. The price to be paid was unimportant to these well-fed, well-heeled men ..

The Communist Party made the most of this. Now there emerged the Russian Institute with its imposing headquarters on Park Avenue. This was a sophisticated propaganda agency; it brought American educators, public officials, artists, young people of families of wealth into this left-wing world. Famous names, Vanderbilt, Lamont, Whitney, Morgan, mingled with those of communist leaders. The Russian Institute was so respectable that it was allowed to give in-service courses to New York City schoolteachers for credit.

And the author knows whereof she speaks: Bella Dodd was a former Marxist.

While we’re on the horrific subject of Marxism, Richard Wurmbrand founded Voice of the Martyrs after suffering unthinkable torture when Communists subsumed his native Romania. He also wrote a book entitled Marx and Satanin which he insisted that Marxism’s ultimate goal isn’t political or economic but religious: to promote the worship of Lucifer while obliterating the Gospel and Christians.

Compare that analysis with this quote from Alexander Solzhenitsyn:

But the world had never before known a godlessness as organized, militarized, and tenaciously malevolent as that practiced by Marxism. Within the philosophical system of Marx and Lenin, and at the heart of their psychology, hatred of God is the principal driving force, more fundamental than all their political and economic pretensions. Militant atheism is not merely incidental or marginal to Communist policy; it is not a side effect, but the central pivot.

Yo, American Socialists: here are two experts, two philosophers, who survived Marxism’s hell. And both arrived at the same conclusion: Communism is Satanic, murderously atheistic, a cult of death and destruction.

He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
