Soviets raise the communist flag over a defeated Germany, May 2, 1945
A quarter of a century before Jewish Soviet photographer Yevgeny Khaldei took his iconic photo, Raising a Flag over the Reichstag, an editorial appeared in the April 4th, 1919, issue of The Jewish Chronicle that stated: "There is much in the fact of Bolshevism itself, in the fact that so many Jews are Bolshevists, in the fact that the ideals of Bolshevism at many points are consonant with the finest ideals of Judaism."



Writing in the February 8th, 1920 issue of The Illustrated Sunday Herald, Winston Churchill said of the Bolshevik Revolution: "With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of leading figures are Jews. Moreover the principal inspiration and the driving power comes from Jewish leaders."


The most detailed description of Jewish influence in the Bolshevik 'revolution comes from Robert Wilton, the Russian correspondent of The Times. In 1920 he published a book in French, Les Derniers Jours des Romanofs, which gave the racial background of all the members of the Soviet government. (This does not appear in the later English translation, for some odd reason.) After the publication of this monumental work, Wilton was ostracised by the press, and he died in poverty in 1925. He reported that the Central Committee of the Bolshevik Party was made up as follows:

In 1946 the House Un-American Activities Committee began investigating the possibility that the American Communist Party had infiltrated the Works Progress Administration, including the Federal Theatre Project and the Federal Writers' Project. In 1947, the committee held nine days of hearings into alleged communist propaganda and influence in the Hollywood motion picture industry. After conviction on contempt of Congress charges for refusal to answer some questions posed by committee members, the "Hollywood Ten" (six of whom were Jews) were blacklisted by the industry. Eventually, more than 300 artists, including directors, radio commentators, actors and particularly screenwriters, a majority of whom were Jewish, were boycotted by the studios.

Senator Joseph McCarthy

PictureRoy Cohn (left) and David Schine (right)

On February 9, 1950, Sen. Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin revealed in a speech given at Wheeling, West Virginia, that he had been given a list of individuals that were known to the Secretary of State to be members of the Communist Party who held positions in the U.S. State Department. In response to McCarthy's allegations, Sen. Millard Tydings chaired a Senate Subcommittee on the Investigation of Loyalty of State Department Employees to conduct "a full and complete study and investigation as to whether persons who are disloyal to the United States are, or have been, employed by the Department of State."



This move launched McCarthy on a personal crusade to attempt to root out Communists in the American government through the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. Due to the fact that so many of the individuals being investigated on suspicion of Communist activities happened to be Jews, FBI director J. Edgar Hoover recommended that McCarthy pass over his first choice for chief counsel, Robert F. Kennedy, and hire a 24 year old Jewish attorney named Roy Cohn instead, so as to avoid accusations of an anti-Semitic motivation for the investigations. What was unknown at the time was that Cohn was in fact a homosexual, and he would later abuse his position in order to obtain preferential treatment for his gay lover, David Schine, who had been drafted as a private in the U.S. Army in 1953. When Cohn began to threaten military officials demanding that Schine be given light duties, extra leave, and exemption from overseas assignment, the Army launched its own investigation against McCarthy and Cohn in 1954, leading to McCarthy's censure by the Senate and effectively ending his career.

In May 1960, the House Un-American Activities Committee held hearings in San Francisco City Hall that led to the infamous riot on May 13, when city police officers fire-hosed protesting students from UC Berkeley, Stanford, and other local colleges and dragged them down the marble steps beneath the rotunda. Soviet affairs expert William Mandel, a Jewish leftist, who had been subpoenaed to testify, angrily denounced the committee and the police in a blistering statement which was aired repeatedly for years thereafter on the liberal-run Pacifica Radio station KPFA in Berkeley. An anti-communist propaganda film, Operation Abolition, was produced by the committee from subpoenaed local news reports, and shown around the country during 1960 and 1961. In response, the Jewish-led ACLU of Northern California produced a film called Operation Correction, which contested numerous points in the first film.
On January 10, 1963, Congressman Albert S. Herlong, Jr., a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Florida, delivered a speech outlining what he believed was the Communist agenda in which he entered into the Congressional Record "45 Current Communist Goals" as outlined in "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen:



1. - U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. - U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. - Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. - Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. - Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. - Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. - Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. - Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. - Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the US has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. - Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. - Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. - Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. - Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. - Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. - Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. - Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. - Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. - Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. - Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. - Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy making positions.

21. - Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. - Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. - Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

24. - Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. - Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. - Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. - Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. - Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29. - Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. - Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man." -

31. - Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. - Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

22. - Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. - Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. - Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. - Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. - Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. - Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand.

39. - Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. - Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. - Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. - Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use united force to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. - Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. - Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. - Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike."


The House Un-American Activities Committee lost considerable support as the 1960s progressed, increasingly becoming the target of political satirists and the defiance of a new generation of Jewish political activists. HUAC subpoenaed Jewish radical leftists, Jerry Rubin and Abbie Hoffman of the Yippies in 1967, and again in the aftermath of the 1968 Democratic National Convention. The Yippies used the media attention to make a mockery of the proceedings. Rubin came to one session dressed as a United States Revolutionary War soldier and passed out copies of the Declaration of Independence to people in attendance. Rubin then "blew giant gum bubbles while his co-witnesses taunted the committee with Nazi salutes." Hoffman attended a session dressed as Santa Claus. On another occasion, police stopped Hoffman at the building entrance and arrested him for wearing the United States flag. Hoffman quipped to the press, "I regret that I have but one shirt to give for my country," paraphrasing the last words of revolutionary patriot Nathan Hale; Rubin, who was wearing a matching Viet Cong flag, shouted that the police were communists for not arresting him also.


By 1975 the House of Representatives voted to abolish the committee, transferring its functions to the House Judiciary Committee.
