It would be easy enough to dismiss Marx as a self-hating Jew. The real complication, I think, is that ethnic Jews were sufficiently over-represented in Communist ranks that it is dangerous for an academic’s career to explore the links between Communism, Jewishness and anti-semitism, especially after Hitler conflated Bolshevism and Jews for his own purposes.

COMPLETE BULLSHIT, and a slur that Hitler and his acolytes then and now would thank you for spreading.

On the eve of the February Revolution, in 1917, the Bolshevik party had about 10,000 members, of whom 364 were ethnic Jews.[9][15]

...According to the 1922 party census, there were 19,564 Jewish Bolsheviks, comprising 5.21% of the total.[16] Jews made up 7.1% of members who had joined before October 1917.[18]...from Jews in the Bolshevik party

As for [Jack Hydrazine's]: "The reason for their silence is because Karl’s lineage from his grandfathers on backward is a long line of Orthodox rabbis."

That is ridiculous reasoning. Orthodox Jews point to scum like Marx as an example of what happens when a Jew (or his parents, and he is subsequently raised non-Jewish) leaves the fold... it's called "falling off the derech" (the "path").

Now there is no doubt that too many jinos in the Jewish academic establishment are leftists and don't want to slander their golden calf, Karl Marx.

And there is no doubt that those not to the Left don't want to "upset" those leftists they work with, and that last is a real disgrace, but it has nothing to do with "ethic jews being innately communist", or that we are ashamed that Marx came from a family of Rabbis.
