"You must understand, the leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism committed the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant and uncaring about this enormous crime is proof that the global media is in the hands of the perpetrators." -Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Thus quotes David Duke in the introduction to his new book, The Secret Behind Communism. Duke says Solzhenitsyn made that statement to him in a 2002 meeting in Moscow.
"The revolution occurred in Russia, and although a percentage of Russians participated in it, it was not a "Russian Revolution," declares Duke in The Secret Behind Communism.
"It was led by an alienated, non-Russian, Jewish ethnic minority who hated Russia, Russians, and the Tsar for their alleged anti-Semitism. Their fellow tribalists around the world financed and their shock troops executed the brutal takeover of the Russian government. Upon achieving total power, their deep, psychopathic, racist hatred became manifest in the greatest human slaughter of all time. Any historian who has studied modern communism from its ideological origins in Karl Marx and Moses Hess, through the mass dispossession, forced starvations, and Gulags of the 20th century, is aware that communists are the real world champions of mass murder. There is no historical dispute that communist regimes killed many times more innocents than any other regime in history, including Hitler's Germany. But unlike members of that National Socialist regime, the greatest mass murderers of all time have not been hunted down across the face of the Earth. They have not faced trial for their horrific crimes against humanity. Perhaps even more importantly they have never faced the court of popular revulsion. Why? Because these communist perpetrators have been shielded by their tribal brethren who have an inordinate influence on media, academia and governments. The truth about the Jewish supremacist role in the creation, execution, and maintenance of world Communism, and the 'Russian' Revolution in particular remains little-known. The reason for this is simple: The Jewish supremacist tribalists who influence major media in the West make sure that almost nothing is said about the fact that Jews, along with organized Jewish support worldwide, not only created Communism, but were the leaders who brought it into such grim reality. They were at the nexus of the greatest slaughter and mass human suffering in history."Duke goes on to provide some background as to why he wrote The Secret Behind Communism, saying that one reason is because Solzhenitsyn's book, Two Hundred Years Together, has been blacklisted in the West, and so Duke has borrowed heavily from the work so it can see the light of day. (I'm not sure where Duke got his own English translation, but I can tell you the White nationalist Occidental Observer, to its credit, managed to get several chapters translated into English, which it posted on its website).
When I met Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008), he had just published his last work, called Two Hundred Years Together (2001). It was about the Jewish experience in Russia, and contained three chapters devoted to discussing the Jewish role in the revolutionary genocide and secret police purges of Soviet Russia after the Bolshevik Revolution of October 1917. I waited ten years in vain for the book to be published in English. It remains unbublished to this day. Of course. The secret behind Communism must remain a secret.Solzhenitsyn's view on the Jews and Communism is actually far more nuanced than Duke's. As Wikipedia notes in its article on Two Hundred Years Together,
In the first volume, Solzhenitsyn discusses the history of Russians and the 100,000 Jews that had migrated to Russia between 1772 and the revolution of 1917. He asserts that the anti-Jewish pogroms in the Russian Empire were not government-sponsored but spontaneous acts of violence, except for some government culpability in the Pale of Settlement. Solzhenitsyn says that life for Russian Jews was hard but no harder than life for Russian peasants. The second volume covers the post-revolution era up to 1970 when many Jews left Russia for Israel and other western countries. Solzhenitsyn says that, despite the presence of Jewish Leon Trotsky, the 1917 February and October Revolutions were not the work of Judaism. Solzhenitsyn says that the Jews who participated in revolution were effectively apostates splitting from the spirit of tradition. Solzhenitsyn emphatically denies that Jews were responsible for the revolutions of 1905 and 1917. At the end of chapter nine, Solzhenitsyn denounces "the superstitious faith in the historical potency of conspiracies" that leads some to blame the Russian revolutions on the Jews and to ignore the "Russian failings that determined our sad historical decline."...
In the spirit of his classic 1974 essay "Repentance and Self-Limitation in the Life of Nations", Solzhenitsyn calls for the Russians and Russian Jews alike to take responsibility for the "renegades" in both communities who supported a totalitarian and terrorist regime after 1917. At the end of chapter 15, he writes that Jews must answer for the "revolutionary cutthroats" in their ranks just as Russians must repent "for the pogroms, for...merciless arsonist peasants, for...crazed revolutionary soldiers." It is not, he adds, a matter of answering "before other peoples, but to oneself, to one's consciousness, and before God."
Solzhenitsyn also takes the anti-Communist White movement to task for condoning violence against Jews and thus undermining "what would have been the chief benefit of a White victory" in the Russian Civil War: "a reasonable evolution of the Russian state."Despite all of his caveats, Solzhenitsyn was still dragged through the mud in the West as an "anti-Semite" following the Russian publication of Two Hundred Years Together, and his book was blacklisted by Western publishers.
My own views probably fall somewhere between Solzhenitsyn's and Duke's. As a non-racist, and someone who is opposed to institutional racism (not least of all because institutional racism has ancient Jewish/Zionist origins), I have serious problems with race absolutism and the concept that people should be deprived of constitutional and national rights based upon what blood is or is not supposedly flowing through their veins (as they are in Israel).
On the other hand, I think it's nonsense that "the Jews who participated in revolution were effectively apostates splitting from the spirit of tradition," as there is no question whatsoever that Jewish doctrine and culture is chock full of racist and bigoted, anti-Gentile and anti-Christian dogma and rhetoric from the Old Testament/Hebrew bible through the Talmud through Jewish Zionist social and political culture, which unquestionably manifests in tenacious, vengeful racism, gangsterism and ethnic cleansing of the kind that Zionist Jews (both religious and "secular") regularly carry out in Israel against the Palestinians, and previously carried out on a vastly larger, apocalypse-sized scale in the early Soviet Union.
And yet again, I can also identify with Solzhenitsyn's warnings about scapegoating Jews entirely for what was a common, Jewish Zionist-Gentile joint venture in gangsterism, theft and mass murder in the Leninist-Trotskyist-Stalinist Russia, because a similar Jewish Zionist-Gentile alliance is behind the crimes and atrocities being perpetrated in the Levant, and in the greater Middle East, today.
In truth, The Secret Behind Communism never really was a secret. In fact, a young Winston Churchill explicitly warned the world about the "atheistic" Jews behind Bolshevism in an article in the Illustrated Sunday Herald in 1920.
But because Churchill was himself a racist of the Imperial variety, and because the imperatives of the British Empire were such that it was not convenient for the English to make a lot of waves about what factions of Jews and their partners were doing in Russia (and in fact, many wealthy Western interests from the Jewish and Anglo-American Wall Street bankers who financed the revolution to, for example, the fledgling Koch dynasty industrialists, were equally hell-bent on profiting from the enterprise) the Russian people in general and Russian Christians in particular were thrown to the Bolshevik/Zionist Moloch, never to be heard from again...almost.
Does all of this sound familiar, say, vis-a-vis the Israeli-Palestinian issue and American Empire?
Hence, those tempted to go the racialist or the "Jews are entirely the problem" route should keep this lesson in mind...that the money-worshipping, Imperialist/Globalist Judas Class is comprised of Zionist Jews and (principally White) Gentiles, the latter of whom are as equally treacherous and dangerous as are the Jewish Zionists themselves, in the same way that trusted Judas was ultimately as dangerous to Jesus as were the Pharisees to whom he was sold into death for a few pieces of silver.
Solzhenitsyn's insight, that the White Guard made a huge mistake when it advocated violence generically against Jews instead of limiting the target to political Jewish Bolsheviks doing the agitating and fighting is the wisdom of history speaking to us today. We must all work towards a reasonable evolution of the American state, not towards blind hatred based on real or imagined racial agendas or bloodlines.
Tribal-racial gangsterism begets tragedy and mass murder, as both Duke and the Jewish Zionists should know.
The problem isn't individual Jews but rather the Jewish Zionist quasi-fascists who made their way West, and have systematically worked to dominate organized Jewry for decades. And it isn't just the Jewish Zionists but rather the larger Judas Class that sustains and profits from the treacherous, money-worshipping, Zionist-Globalist Moloch as well.
"The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings"...to the Jewish Zionists, and to their Judas Class accomplices.
