Immanuel Kant on the Jews

(Compiled by Chris Moore)

"Every coward is a liar; Jews for example, not only in business, but also in common life." Source

"The Jews still cannot claim any true genius, any truly great man. All their talents and skills revolve around stratagems and low cunning...They are a nation of swindlers." Source

The Jews are by nature “sharp dealers” who are “bound together by superstition.” Their “immoral and vile” behavior in commerce shows that they “do not aspire to civic virtue,” for “the spirit of usury holds sway amongst them.” They are “a nation of swindlers” who benefit only “from deceiving their host’s culture.” Source

"The Palestinians [Jews thought to have originated in Palestine] living among us have, for the most part, earned a not unfounded reputation for being cheaters, because of their spirit of usury since their exile. Certainly, it seems strange to conceive of a nation of cheaters; but it is just as odd to think of a nation of merchants, the great majority of whom, bound by an ancient superstition that is recognized by the State they live in, seek no civil dignity and try to make up for this loss by the advantage of duping the people among whom they find refuge, and even one another. The situation could not be otherwise, given a whole nation of merchants, as non-productive members of society (for example, the Jews in Poland). So their constitution, which is sanctioned by ancient precepts and even by the people among whom they live (since we have certain sacred writings in common with them), cannot consistently be abolished — even though the supreme principle of their morality in trading with us is "Let the buyer beware." I shall not engage in the futile undertaking of lecturing to these people, in terms of morality, about cheating and honesty. Instead, I shall present my conjectures about the origin of this peculiar constitution (the constitution, namely, of a nation of merchants)." [Quoted in Immanuel Kant, Anthropology from a Pragmatic Point of View, tr. Mary J. Gregor (The Hague: Martinus Nijhoff, 1974), p. 77.] Source

Kant highlights the story where God asks Abraham to sacrifice his young son as a test of loyalty. This is completely immoral, encouraging human sacrifice. Why, Kant argues, would an all loving God command this? It also must be realized, that it is irrational to believe that we can communicate with the infinite via our finite senses; any such experience is an illusion. Kant also made personal reference to Judaism; he believed that it was not in actual fact a religion, devoted towards serving God through moral acts, but simply a ‘pseudo-religion’ revolving around rituals and observances.

This was naturally devastating to the stability of Judaism; Kant had questioned its whole fundamental basis. Within Jewish communities the accepted interpretation of the Torah and leadership from authoritative rabbis stemmed from rabbinic scholarship. Their literal interpretation was unquestioned, and the Torah, both oral and written was the Word of God. Jews followed faithfully Mosaic laws, and obeyed the observances of past generations. Now applying Kant’s views to their situation, Kant was telling them they were not only behaving as children, but they were immoral too, failing to have an individual morality not reliant on God. The Jewish people believed them set apart from other religions, especially favored by God. Kant however was merging all religions into one, just looking at religion’s overall social function. Moreover Kant believed Judaism could not be called a religion due to the high observance of rituals. This statement would have shattered a great deal of Jews.

The Torah is considered sacred by the Jewish people; not just anyone can read or interpret it and touch the scrolls within the synagogue, especially not women. Although Kant was analyzing the Christian Bible, his message was universal; all scriptural texts should be rationally interpreted by individuals. Thus in Jewish eyes here was Kant treating Christian and consequently Jewish Scriptures as an ordinary book, disregarding the authority of tradition, presenting ideas which stood completely in opposition to Jewish practice. Kant’s criticism of the story of Abram would have been very poignant to the Jewish people for the historical accounts of their forefathers are highly regarded. Source

Chris Moore comments:

A lot of what Kant says and writes about the Jews resonates with my own opinion not necessarily of each and every Jew, but certainly with the essence of many factions of organized Jewry, and ALL factions of Judeofascists.

The roots of their enmity, usury, and haughty and imperious delusions of grandeur and entitlement, of course, lie in their ethno-religious and cultural dogma, particularly the Talmud and the Kabbalah, which essentially instruct that Jews are God's chosen race, and all non-Jews are essentially animals, to be manipulated, used, exploited, cheated, plundered, swindled and even murdered as the chosen race sees fit.

Additionally, this attitude gets transmuted to petite Judeofascists, including Judeo-Christian Zionists and Judeophile statist liberals (of the Bolshevik type) who then manifest those attitudes into personal, social and political policy that itself manifests in an overall cynical, misanthropic, usurious, colonialist, parasitical or fascist approach to the world or view of the world, which ironically eventually blows back upon the Jews themselves (e.g. Nazism).

It's alarming and depressing how many non-Jews have made a free will decision to adopt and emulate the Judeofascist "ethic," which explains so much of America's decline into Keynesian swindle and fascism itself.

The Judeofascists and their admirers, allies, emulators, and collaborators: what a truly poisonous and destructive pariah class.

Or, as Kant might put it: An immoral and vile nation of cheaters and low-cunning swindlers.

Wilhelm and Martin Luther has their misgivings about Jews centuries before Hitler's rise to power. Wilhelm's adviser said that the German stock market would be set back centuries if it wasn't for Jews.
This is probably the bitter pill that US politicians swallow; they believe it's best to have them on your side.

You've said this before, but they require other corrupted groups that want to rise to power. Pat Robertson finally earned his devil horns and Hagee is on his way to attaining them. It's these perverted interests that keep the wheel turning for Israel.

another example of a corrupted group was sick Hollywood defending Polanksi for child rape. Can you imagine if it was a Catholic priest that did this? They would be calling on the CIA to assassinate him in Switzerland.

Yes, I used to believe it was largely mere ignorance and naiveté that kept the Political Class and many of the country's elites from uniting against the Judeofascists.

Eventually, I realized it was a free will decision to embrace pure evil and corruption, motivated by vanity, greed, narcissism and misanthropic malevolence -- failures of character that the traditional Christian zeitgeist of Western Civilization recognized as "sins."

What Christians traditionally recognized as sinful, Judeofascists and their collaborators embrace and celebrate as "virtues" -- hence as the Christian inertia that sustained Western Civilization for centuries has slowly exhausted itself, these creatures grow ever stronger and more bold.

We are on the brink of a Satanic epoch unless these devils can somehow be corkscrewed back into the bottle.

It’s ironic that a seminal figure of the Enlightenment like Kant recognized the menace that racketeering Jewry posed to its success. Clearly he understood that unless they were subdued, they posed a lethal threat to the entire process.

How prescient he was.

Wow, what an enlightening article. I'm going to take a closer look at your website, which looks interesting.

Please check out (and consider writing about) my website at and my campaign website @ The election is over, but my campaign was historic. (My campaign site is now getting more traffic than it did a year ago, during the campaign!)

I'm also working on a general reference about Jews in the political arena, which will be available next year.

Thanks for the great work.

I, too, want to thank you for the great work. I appreciate that this site is both so intelligent and informative, not to mention well organized, bringing us the problem directly rather than making us dig for the information we need to understand what is going on.
