Skip to comments.The deafening silence of the Holocaust-Shoah establishment

At the time of the Feb. 2013 release of my book On the Jewish Question Karl Marx, anti-Semitism and the war against the West, I notified hundreds of museums, institutions, periodicals, and university departments specializing in the Holocaust and in Holocaust and Genocide Studies asking them to please consider including the topics I covered in my book in their discourse. I notified Jewish organizations across the United States and the world. Other than one or two neutral acknowledgements and a couple of nasty emails the silence was deafening.
My book is about the one aspect of the rise of Nazism and the implementation of the Holocaust against the Jews of Europe that is virtually never discussed. Indeed, this one aspect, one out of many that exist in a vast and complex subject, has been virtually airbrushed out of the public discourse. My book has been censored from the otherwise excellent and probative body of analysis and thinking on the topic. I contend that there will never be an integrated understanding of the Holocaust until the subject I raise is broached. The blackout of information I have researched is a crime against the memory of the six million victims of the Holocaust whose blood cries out from the grave for the truth and for justice. It is also an abrogation of responsibility regarding adherence to the spirit of the slogan never again.
The politically incorrect and still sensitive aspect that I raise is the influence that Karl Marx, as evidenced by his anti-Jewish tract On the Jewish Question, first published in 1844 and re-published numerous times and in many languages, had on Nazism and on Hitler. In my book I re-publish Marx treatise, a tract which should be listed in the same infamous pantheon of anti-Semitic hate literature as Mein Kampf and as the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, in its entirety with commentary. I link that hateful treatise to the political and philosophical aspirations and the political formation and nature of Nazism. Marx ideas, as I demonstrate, were completely absorbed by Hitler and by the Nazis and Marx ideas, and strategies, had a great deal to do with the Holocaust.
In On the Jewish Question, Karl Marx wrote the following:
What is the secular basis of Judaism? Practical need, self-interest. What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money.
Marx theorized that the best means of eliminating from human society those natural human traits, self-interest, Huckstering, Money, was for Judaism to be made impossible to use his term. Philosophically, Marx claimed that human nature could be changed by eliminating what he viewed as bad influences. Marx wrote about false consciousness which he applied to Judaism, false consciousness that he claimed was created by exploiters. He believed that such false consciousness could be replaced by a new paradigm that would advance human society toward utopia.
He sought to replace such positive human traits as self-interest, which is the natural desire of the human being to define his own life and destiny with collectivism. He sought to replace Huckstering, which is the natural need for the human being to trade goods and services in an atmosphere of freedom with utopia. He sought to replace Money, which allows people a means to store value and which is the basis of private property with Communism. I examine the similarities between this and the Nazi concept of the Ubbermench.
I have been fascinated by the Holocaust since as a child I heard my grandparents and uncles and aunts discuss the topic and the people who were murdered. I wondered how it could have happened. I have searched for an answer ever since. In my quest I try to leave no stone unturned as such a terrible crime deserves a complete and dispassionate understanding. My intention is not to hurt anyones feelings, only to get closer to the truth. At this point in history, after subsequent genocides which took place after World War II and with the genocidal forces that the State of Israel faces, I would hope that others would be courageous enough to join me in my quest.
The silence continues on two fronts: The role of Marx in influencing Hitler and the Holocaust; and the fact that Hitler was a LEFTIST, not “right-wing”. His policies of public works, gun control/bans, nationalized healthcare and mandatory public schooling/homeschooling ban were 100% left-wing progressive, as was his tendency to murder those who opposed him or got in his way.
And over time, Stalin had them all eliminated. Maybe some Jews were attracted to the Bolsheviks, because of their hatred of the Czar....but the leadership of the movement despised Jews every bit as much, but found them "useful."
The widespread perception in the period 1918 thru the 1940's was that the communist movement had a disproportionate number of Jews, which lead to a higher degree of anti-Jewish feeling from those who had suffered from Communism, like the Ukrainians and the Poles.
His hatred of communists wasn't due to their being communist, as much as their having allegiance to the USSR. Hitler didn't dislike socialism, he just wanted to be in charge and was against competitors for leadership.
I'm thinking much of Stalin's animosity towards Jews in the Party came from him thinking they sided with his competitor for leadership post-Lenin: Trotsky.
Nazis also proclaimed that there were a disproportionate number of Jewish Capitalists, as well.
Hitler detested Communists, not because he fundamentally disagreed with their anti-capitalist stance....He just saw them as rivals that were in his way.
A good number of the SA were former Communists, and joined the SA, because they wanted to be the source of change in Germany to a socialist system......which turned out to be one of the main reasons Hitler had them purged, they were scaring off the industrialists Hitler needed to build up his war machine.
But Hitler’s writings indicated, that once the war was won, and the industrialists were no longer needed, they were to be eliminated as a class.
Solzhenitsyns 200 Years Together goes into Russian Jewish participation in Communism.
This is not about Judaism.
But the two main guys that sided with Stalin against Trotsky, Zinoviev and Kamenev, were also Jewish....and in due time, Stalin took care of them, as well.
Don’t you know? Once Solzhenitsyn started digging into the roots of Communism, he became a persona non grata, anti-semite, Nazi sympathizer, 88 tattoo (whatever that means) owner, etc, etc.
The only problem with that theory is that, as the quote from Mein Kampf (see post 18) indicates, Hitler detested Marxists and Marxism several years before the communist revolution in Russia. He detested Marxism when Russia was still being run by the tsars.
Maybe if you'd been there at the time, you could have straightened Hitler out about the real reasons he hated communists and Jews. Or, maybe you could have talked him into loving both communists and Jews. But, I'm told that he was often kind of hard to reason with about some of this stuff. ;-)
