David Duke Admits that “Protocols of Zion” Is Fiction

David Duke, vir­u­lent anti-Semite and for­mer Klan leader, is des­per­ately pro­mot­ing his yet-to be released book, The Illus­trated Pro­to­cols of Zion. Duke’s book is based on The Pro­to­cols of the Elders of Zion, a well-known 19th- cen­tury forgery that pur­ports to be a secret plan of Jews to take over the world. In a video about the book posted orig­i­nally on Duke’s YouTube chan­nel, Duke admits that the orig­i­nal Pro­to­cols is a work of fic­tion. He is tak­ing a dif­fer­ent tack than most anti-Semites who see the Pro­to­cols as an actual blue­print for world dom­i­na­tion by Jews. While Duke declares that the orig­i­nal Pro­to­cols is a work of “lit­er­ary fan­tasy,” he argues that his own ver­sion sur­passes the orig­i­nal in doc­u­ment­ing Jew­ish power.

David Duke’s The Illus­trated Pro­to­cols of Zion

Through­out the video used to pro­mote the Illus­trated Pro­to­cols, Duke claims that the elders of Zion are now known as the lead­ers of Zion­ism. He then goes on to assert that Jews con­trol the gov­ern­ment, bank­ing, the media and Hol­ly­wood. Though Duke tries to present Illus­trated Pro­to­cols of Zion as a ground-breaking work, the book merely rehashes the same anti-Semitic themes as Duke’s pre­vi­ous works. Like the orig­i­nal Pro­to­cols, the pur­pose of Duke’s book and video is to pro­mote hatred against the Jews.

Though Duke has been pro­mot­ing The Illus­trated Pro­to­cols for months on his web­site in an effort to get it printed, he sent an “emer­gency” appeal for money to sup­port­ers this week. In the appeal, he claims that the Illus­trated Pro­to­cols video posted on his YouTube chan­nel was removed due to a Jew­ish con­spir­acy against him. He also claims that YouTube is going to ter­mi­nate the “David Duke Chan­nel” in 10 days.

In this lat­est ploy to raise money, Duke blames “Jew­ish extrem­ists” for try­ing to pre­vent his books and videos from being seen, How­ever, in real­ity, many of Duke’s videos remain on YouTube. More­over, accord­ing to a sus­pen­sion notice dis­played on YouTube the orig­i­nal Illus­trated Pro­to­cols video was removed from Duke’s YouTube chan­nel due to copy­right vio­la­tions, not an alleged con­spir­acy. Duke uses numer­ous clips from movies and other media to exploit anti-Semitic themes in the video, which has since been reposted to YouTube by other users.

After Executive Action on Immigration, Extremists Lash Out

Extrem­ists in the United States responded to Pres­i­dent Obama’s announce­ment of exec­u­tive action on immi­gra­tion by attack­ing the Pres­i­dent, blam­ing Jews and call­ing for whites to become “con­scious” and dis­tance them­selves from the cur­rent polit­i­cal sys­tem and society.

The racist and anti-Semite Pat Buchanan penned an arti­cle pub­lished in Townhall.com in which he claimed the Pres­i­dent, “ensured the remak­ing of Amer­ica.” Buchanan wrote, “Now when the wives and chil­dren of the ille­gals arrive, and their extended fam­i­lies apply for and receive visas, and bring their wives and chil­dren, we will become the Third World coun­try of Obama’s dream, no more a West­ern nation.” Adrian Krieg, a direc­tor with the white suprema­cist Amer­i­can Free­dom Party (AFP) also attacked the Pres­i­dent in a col­umn on the AFP web­site, assert­ing, “This was the act of a despotic sociopath act­ing out­side law, and in a veiled attempt to paint the oppo­si­tion into a corner.”

In a piece on his web­site, anti-Semite David Duke blamed Jews for the President’s actions, declar­ing, “This strategy—of ensur­ing that America’s found­ing Euro­pean pop­u­la­tion be reduced to a minority—and then prefer­ably into total irrelevance—has been a major goal of the Jew­ish Suprema­cists since the days of Jacob Jav­its and his fel­low Zio-racists since the 1960s, when the first Jewish-promoted immi­gra­tion reforms were started.” Fel­low anti-Semite Andrew Anglin echoed Duke’s com­ments on his Daily Stormer web­site, assert­ing, “The rea­son here is that the Repub­li­cans aren’t actu­ally against it. The big busi­ness Jews who run the GOP are in agree­ment with the com­mie Jews who run the Demo­c­ra­tic Party: mass third world immi­gra­tion is a good thing.”

White nation­al­ist Richard Spencer called for a new white iden­tity in an arti­cle on the web­site of his group National Pol­icy Insti­tute (NPI). Spencer claimed the President’s actions could mark a “begin­ning of a move­ment of Iden­tity.” This iden­tity can flour­ish, Spencer wrote “even if half the chan­nels on cable are ‘en espan­iol [sic].’” Gre­gory Hunter, a con­trib­u­tor to the white suprema­cist online pub­li­ca­tion Counter-Currents, responded in a sim­i­lar vein to Spencer. Hunter argued, “It seems self-evident that European-Americans should turn on those who have betrayed them, renounce the failed Amer­i­can exper­i­ment, and secure their own destroy [sic] by any means nec­es­sary – seces­sion, rebel­lion, and the even­tual goal of the White Repub­lic.” Hunter went on to assert that “no progress will be made unless European-Americans become con­scious of them­selves as Euro­peans abroad.”

David Duke Exploits Gaza Situation With New Video

For­mer Klan leader and anti-Semite David Duke, pre­sent­ing him­self as a “peace activist” and an unbi­ased “his­to­rian” has cre­ated a new exploitive video on the war in Gaza. Duke uses the sit­u­a­tion in Gaza to pro­mote his own vir­u­lent brand of anti-Semitism and attempt to win sympathizers.david-duke-gaza-video

In the video titled, “Israeli Geno­cide in Gaza,” Duke accuses Israel of “bar­baric” mass mur­der and geno­cide. He also alleges that the media and politi­cians are con­trolled by Zion­ists who pur­posely mis­lead the public.

Iron­i­cally, Duke claims to be a his­to­rian “who likes to expose hypocrisy, decep­tion and manip­u­la­tion.” Yet he uses all three to paint Jews as mur­der­ers, liars and thieves. Duke also rep­re­sents him­self as a cham­pion of the Pales­tini­ans despite hav­ing been an active white suprema­cist for decades.

The real objec­tive of Duke’s video, which has received almost 32,000 views on YouTube, is to demo­nize Jews and to pro­mote the idea that Jews con­trol Amer­ica. At the end of the video, Duke exclaims, “Free Pales­tine and free Amer­ica and free the world from Zion­ist lies and tyranny.”

In addi­tion to the video on the sit­u­a­tion in Gaza, Duke has been try­ing to raise money to pub­lish “The Illus­trated Pro­to­cols of Zion,” a ver­sion of the noto­ri­ous anti-Semitic work that accuses Jews of a world­wide plot to con­trol the world.
