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.

White Supremacist American Third Position Party Promoting Gun Appreciation Day

The Amer­i­can Third Posi­tion (A3P), a white suprema­cist polit­i­cal party, is pro­mot­ing Gun Appre­ci­a­tion Day on its web­site. The Jan­u­ary 19 event, spon­sored by a num­ber of pro-gun and Tea Party groups, urges Amer­i­cans to go to their local gun store, gun range or gun show to demon­strate their sup­port of gun own­er­ship and their right to bear arms.

A3P was a co-sponsor of the event but the orga­niz­ers appar­ently removed A3P’s name from the list of spon­sors after Media Mat­ters and other news out­lets revealed the group’s extrem­ist views. In its mis­sion state­ment, A3P states that the group’s goal is “to restore and pre­serve the legit­i­macy of White iden­tity, White her­itage, and expres­sions of White interests.”

The lead­er­ship of A3P includes a num­ber of well-known white suprema­cists and anti-Semites. Chair­man William John­son pro­moted a con­sti­tu­tional amend­ment to Con­gres­sional mem­bers and state leg­is­la­tures in the 1980s that would have lim­ited U.S. cit­i­zen­ship only to whites of Euro­pean descent and repa­tri­ated var­i­ous groups, includ­ing Jews, to places deemed their coun­try of origin.

Other lead­ers of the A3P include Kevin Mac­Don­ald, an anti-Semitic pro­fes­sor of psy­chol­ogy at Cal­i­for­nia State Uni­ver­sity at Long Beach; James Edwards, who runs a white suprema­cist radio show, The Polit­i­cal Cesspool; Don Was­sall, a long-time white suprema­cist whose news­pa­per The Nation­al­ist Times pub­lishes anti-Semitic and racist arti­cles; Vir­ginia Aber­nethy, a white suprema­cist and anti-immigration activist, and Jamie Kelso, a racist and for­mer asso­ciate of ex-Klan leader David Duke.

One of the A3P’s main goals is to appeal to main­stream audi­ences, and it attempts to do so using issues that are of con­cern to the gen­eral pub­lic.  A3P’s attempt to par­tic­i­pate in Gun Appre­ci­a­tion Day is part of this effort. Pre­vi­ously, the party has sought to exploit issues such as immi­gra­tion and gov­ern­ment spend­ing at Tea Party events in dif­fer­ent parts of the country.

Conspiracy Theorists Blame Jews For Sandy Hook Massacre

In the after­math of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Ele­men­tary, inter­net posts blam­ing Jews for the killings began to spring up on var­i­ous online mes­sage boards and con­spir­acy the­ory web­sites.  One the­ory, for exam­ple, pro­motes the notion that a sup­pos­edly Jewish-controlled Hol­ly­wood encour­ages killing sprees with sub­lim­i­nal mes­sages glo­ri­fy­ing gun vio­lence. Another attrib­utes the vio­lence to the State of Israel, claim­ing Israel per­pe­trated a “false flag” ter­ror­ist attack on Amer­i­can soil as alleged pun­ish­ment for Amer­i­can for­eign pol­icy on Israel and the Palestinians.

Among the most well-known pro­mot­ers of racist and anti-Semitic beliefs to claim that Jews were behind the shoot­ing spree is for­mer Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. On his web­site, where he dis­sem­i­nates his white suprema­cist ide­ol­ogy and specif­i­cally anti-Jewish views, Duke alleges that what hap­pened at Sandy Hook Ele­men­tary is a result of Jew­ish con­trol over sev­eral Amer­i­can insti­tu­tions and for­eign pol­icy. Duke con­cludes that it is the sup­posed Zion­ist con­trol over the media that resulted in the Sandy Hook shootings:

“Lead bul­lets are not mur­der­ers. The real mur­der­ers are not the bul­lets, but the Bul­lies of the Zio Media…Guns did not cre­ate the hor­ror in that lit­tle school in Sandy Hook, Con­necti­cut. The Zio mas­ters of the media did. They have devoured the real Amer­ica. The mas­ters of the media con­tinue to take us down the path of human depravity…”

Press TV, the Iran­ian government’s plat­form to dis­sem­i­nate its ide­ol­ogy to the English-speaking world, also exploited this tragedy to espouse anti-Semitic “expla­na­tions” of what hap­pened at the Con­necti­cut ele­men­tary school. In an inter­view broad­cast on Press TV today, Mike Har­ris, a con­trib­u­tor to the anti-Semitic web­site Vet­er­ans Today who has ties to mem­bers of the neo-Nazi National Social­ist Move­ment (NSM), held Zion­ists account­able for a num­ber of mass shoot­ings in America:

“We have had a Zionist-controlled Hol­ly­wood, a Zionist-controlled news media that is the con­duit to all of these vio­lence, these imagery, into every home in Amer­ica and so you won­der why there is a cul­ture of vio­lence? It is because it comes from the Jews in Hol­ly­wood. That is where the con­duit of vio­lence comes from. That is the source of it… You have to real­ize Israel has been oper­at­ing death squads in the United States since Gabrielle Gif­fords and Judge Roll were shot in Tus­can. There have been other inci­dents as the Col­orado shoot­ing, that was again Israeli death squads oper­at­ing in the US.”

In an arti­cle pub­lished on the Press TV web­site by Gor­don Duff, Senior Edi­tor of Vet­er­ans Today, Duff asked Har­ris if he stands by his claims that Israel is respon­si­ble for the mas­sacre. His response: “You [Israel] mur­der chil­dren as part of ‘busi­ness as usual,’ you shouldn’t be sur­prised that when chil­dren are mur­dered, peo­ple look to you.”

This is not the first time David Duke and Press TV have exploited a tragedy in Amer­ica to spew their hate­ful anti-Jewish ide­ol­ogy. On the 11th anniver­sary of the 9/11 attacks, David Duke appeared on Press TV claim­ing that Zion­ists mas­ter­minded the attacks on 9/11.
