Jewish Activists and White Institutions

This essay examines the role of Jews in the collapse of white separatism as a political insitution in both America and South Africa.

We will begin with two facts. First, the average IQ of African-Americans is 85, and secondly, the average IQ of sub-Saharan Africans is 70. If we take the average ‘White’ IQ to be 100, then Whites are vastly more intelligent than Africans. So, how did blacks overthrow the racial dominance of Whites in both the United States and other White nations such as South Africa?

The answer will surprise you: They didn’t. To clarify, there were indeed black political movements in these nations that abolished segregation and apartheid but these were not led by blacks – they were led by Jews.

In South Africa the most prominent anti-apartheid political group was Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress. The military wing of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK), was created in 1961. Both of these organizations worked in coordination with the South African Communist Party.

When the South African police raided Liliesleaf Farm in 1963 they managed to arrest 19 members of the ANC and MK. Among those arrested were Denis Goldberg, Lionel Bernstein, Bob Hepple, Arthur Goldreich, Harold Wolpe, and James Kantor – all Jews.

Goldreich, with Wolpe, had bought Liliesleaf Farm with funds provided by the SACP. Wolpe, a lawyer, also worked with Goldreich to locate targets for the MK’s operations. Goldberg was a technical officer in the MK. Bernstein was a member of the South African Communist Party. Hepple was a lawyer who advised the ANC. At the Rivonia Trial their legal defence included Harry Schwarz, Arthur Chaskalson, and Joel Joffe – all Jewish.

Other Jewish activists like writer Nadine Gordimer continued their anti-apartheid efforts. Gordimer testified on behalf of the defendants in the later Delmas Treason Trial and would also meet with other anti-apartheid activists such as Helen Suzman at the house of her publisher Lulu Friedman. Suzman knew Mandela on a personal basis and would visit him in prison. Another activist, lawyer Albie Sachs, mounted legal challenges to apartheid in court. Joe Slovo continued his work as a leader of the SACP and Chief of Staff in MK. Ronnie Kasrils, a writer of film scripts, became the MK intelligence chief and eventually became a member of the ANC National Executive Committee in 1987.

Most of these individuals were rewarded for their efforts after the White government was finally overthrown in 1994. Kasrils was made the Deputy Minister of Defence from 1994 to 1999. Arthur Chaskalson was made first president, then Chief Justice, of South Africa’s Constitutional Court from 1994 until 2005. Albie Sachs was appointed to the Constitutional Court in 1994 and authored the decision in Minister of Home Affairs v. Fourie declaring a constitutional right to same-sex marriage.

While the anti-apartheid movement was gaining support, the ‘Civil Rights’ campaign was simultaneously unleashed upon the United States. At first this too appears a movement led by blacks such as Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa parks, and Malcolm X. Upon closer inspection this movement was also dominated by Jews.

On June 21, 1964 three young ‘Civil Rights’ activists were killed in Mississippi. These men were James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner. Chaney was a black man from Mississippi but Goodman and Schwerner were Jews from New York. According to the PBS documentary From Swastika to Jim Crow, fifty percent of the ‘Whites’ who went to Mississippi in 1964 to challenge Jim Crow laws were Jewish. It is also estimated that fifty percent of civil rights attorneys in the South during the 1960s were Jewish.

Could those percentages be correct?  Jews have never been more than 1-2% of the population of the United States. But, let us examine further. One of the most prominent African-American organziation is the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The organization had numerous Jewish founding members such as professor Joel Spingarn, Rabbi Stephen Wise, banker Jacob Schiff, Jacob Billikopf, Julius Rosenwald, Lillian Wald, and Emil G. Hirsch. This organization was so thoroughly dominated by Jews that from 1915 until 1975 every president was Jewish.

Even Martin Luther King Jr., the figurehead of the movement, relied heavily upon his Jewish friend and advisor Stanley Levison for organizing fundraising and publicity. Levison was previously involved with the leadership of the Communist Party of America in the 1950s and was introduced to King by Bayard Rustin, a member of the Communist Youth movement. When Levison was brought before the Senate Subcommittee on Internal Defense, his lawyer was Jewish-radical William Kunstler. Kunstler later defended several high-profile defendants such as the Chicago Seven, a group of mostly Jewish agitators who were charged with conspiring to incite a riot at the 1968 Democratic National Convention.

When we examine the role of Jews in anti-apartheid and desegregation activity we find that the Jews were not an oppressed minority acting in solidarity with blacks. The overwhelming majority of Jewish anti-apartheid and ‘Civil Rights’ activists were university educated and occupied good positions within the dominant White culture. Even the Communist Slovo was a university educated lawyer. Not being subject to the same travel restrictions and curfews as black Africans, they were in a unique position to subvert the apartheid society. Indeed, most of their intelligence, some of which included targets for the MK bombing campaign, came from official sources that may have been inaccessible to black South Africans.

In both South Africa and the United States the Jews played crucial roles in developing black political movements and bringing down the institutions created by Whites. Without the efforts of Jews, would segregation and apartheid still be with us?

  1. I’d like to read Pastor Martin Lindstedt’s take on this.

    I’d attend his church just to hear that sermon!

  2. Many Jews in Europe did convert to Christianity over the past 2,000 years, through force and willful conversion, and dissolved into the Christian majority. We are taught today that this is a shameful part of Western history, that it was extremely oppressive against Jews. But in reality this was a very humane way of neutralizing the Jewish presence in the West. By converting to Christianity and dropping their separate and hostile Jewish identity, Jews had the opportunity to assimilate to a great extent. And if not immediately, through successive generations. They had this chance for a very long time, and many took it.

    This is a major reason why the Jews that made it to 20th century as Jews were and are so virulent and dominant. They managed to resist for 2,000 years both force and intense pressure to convert. This selected for intense virulence and many very nasty traits. The more easy going, less hostile, less fervent, more accommodating, etc. Jews would have converted and their separate, distinct identity would have been melted away.

  3. I don’t understand the intense religious preoccupation here with Christianizing the Jews, as if all of the problems with them will just melt away if they have some water splashed on them and start going to church on Sundays.

    The Jewish problem is fundamentally ethnic, not religious — everyone who has seriously studied Jewry understands this.

    Plus, Jews as a people are almost entirely bereft of any true spirituality or religious awe — the majority of them are extremely atheistic, even the ‘Orthodox’ ones.

  4. Regarding my above comment, ‘biological anti-Semitism’ (legal and permanent geographic separation of Jews from non-Jews, preferably ghettoizing all of them in a large city like NYC) is the only true solution to the Jewish problem — no amount of Christian proselytizing is ever going to ‘heal’ these stiff-necked people. If you do happen to convert one generation of Jews, the conversion will soon wear off in the next generation or the one after that and they will thus return to their Judaic clannishness and nation-wrecking ways — Spain and other nations had major problems with ethnically Jewish ‘converso’ pigs for many centuries, and they were never able to completely get a handle on them; thus history teaches us that the only true solution to the Jewish problem is a permanent segregation of them from the general population.

  5. For the record, I don’t advocate “Christianizing” them. That would be absurd, especially today.

    In my previous comment I was making basically a biological point regarding Jews and the evolution of intense Jewish virulence.

  6. The preferred mode of analysis is discussing “liberalism” and shifting the blame solely onto the WASPs.

    Quite true. The likes of Auster and Gottfried are very fond of criticizing and blaming WASPs while defending Jews from scrutiny.

    There are also a number of white nationalists who are eager to malign WASPs and Puritans.

  7. I don’t understand the intense religious preoccupation here with Christianizing the Jews, as if all of the problems with them will just melt away if they have some water splashed on them and start going to church on Sundays.

    I don’t think any serious people would argue that point.

    The Jewish problem is fundamentally ethnic, not religious — everyone who has seriously studied Jewry understands this.


    Plus, Jews as a people are almost entirely bereft of any true spirituality or religious awe — the majority of them are extremely atheistic, even the ‘Orthodox’ ones.

    From whence comes their inability to ‘do’ art.

  8. An interesting Jew:

    I don’t think you really believe that. I think he is boooooring. A complete snore. I figure you would describe him as Scrooby in Orthodox garb.

  9. It wasn’t until I read E. Michael Jone’s book The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit, that I began to grasp the enormous negative scope of Jewish influence on the Western world. You would think that a 1200 page history book would be dry going, but I found it to be the opposite. Each page brought new revelations and insights into this epic struggle. Although Jones is Catholic, the book is quite accessible for secular students, who will probably learn some surprising things about the true nature of Christianity. For some odd reason was charging close to $200 for a new copy. Better to buy it direct from Jones’s website.

    He doesn’t deal specifically with South Africa, but goes into great detail on the civil rights activity in the US. For starters he discusses how Otilie Assing, Frederick Douglass’ German Jewish lover, had a profound intellectual influence on him prior and after the Civil war. She successfully converted him from a deeply religious black nationalist into a secular black integrationist. His discussion of the Leo Frank trial gives you great insight into how the Jewish community operates to protect its interests. The chapters on Marcus Garvey and black nationalism, and how the NAACP was created to destroy black nationalism and enforce integration, are truly eye-opening.

    I emerged from the book with a better understanding of the Jewish question as well as the Jewish cultural energy and modus operandi. It was clear that South Africa is just one more blip in an ages long string of Jewish revolutionary conquests.
