David Duke Solicits Funds To Distribute New Anti-Semitic Book

For­mer Klan leader and anti-Semite David Duke says on his web­site that he is try­ing to pub­lish a new book that paints Jews as mass mur­der­ers who com­mit­ted geno­cide against Rus­sians and Ukraini­ans dur­ing the Russ­ian Revolution. david-duke-new-book

On July 6, 2013, Duke claimed that he had raised enough money from read­ers of his web­site to pub­lish the book titled The Secret Behind Com­mu­nism. Duke posted the book’s intro­duc­tion on his web­site in an appar­ent effort to elicit more funds for print­ing, dis­trib­ut­ing and pro­mot­ing the book.

In the intro­duc­tion, he claims that Jews were behind the Russ­ian Rev­o­lu­tion and were respon­si­ble for mur­der­ing tens of mil­lions of peo­ple. He writes, “Upon achiev­ing total power, [Jews’] deep psy­cho­pathic, racist hatred became man­i­fest in the great­est human slaugh­ter of all time.” The intro­duc­tion is typ­i­cal of his anti-Semitic dia­tribes. He often pro­motes con­spir­a­to­r­ial depic­tions of Jew­ish power and Jew­ish hatred for non-Jews, a com­bi­na­tion he refers to as “Jew­ish supremacism.”

Duke argues that the alleged mass killing of Ukraini­ans by Jews far exceeded the Holo­caust.  Invok­ing clas­si­cal anti-Semitic myths, he claims that the pub­lic focuses on the Holo­caust and not the Ukraine because Jews con­trol the media, acad­e­mia, gov­ern­ments and Hollywood.

In addi­tion to blam­ing Jews for the mass mur­der of Ukraini­ans and Rus­sians, Duke attacks Zion­ism. He asserts that modern-day Israelis learned about “eth­nic cleans­ing” from Jew­ish Bol­she­viks. He writes, “The eth­nic cleans­ings and mur­der­ous ways of the Jew­ish trib­al­ists in Rus­sia are being repeated in the Zion­ist eth­nic cleans­ing of Palestine.”

Duke ded­i­cated his book to Alexan­der Solzhen­it­syn, the renowned Russ­ian writer who unfor­tu­nately expressed anti-Semitic views in some of his works. Duke states in the book’s intro­duc­tion that he lib­er­ally uses Solzhenitsyn’s writ­ings on the Russ­ian Rev­o­lu­tion to pro­vide the con­text for his new book.

Duke is also try­ing to raise funds for another anti-Semitic book he is writ­ing, The Zion­ist Con­spir­acy. Duke released a pre­view of one chap­ter of the book, in which he argues that Jews do not have a higher intel­li­gence level than non-Jews, and thus their “over­rep­re­sen­ta­tion” in Ivy League schools, such as Har­vard, can be attrib­uted to anti-white dis­crim­i­na­tion against “more qual­i­fied” European-Americans and Asian-Americans.
