The following letter was written by retired Major General George Van Horn Moseley. He was Deputy Chief of Staff under General MacArthur from 1930 to 1933. A copy of this letter can be found in the book The “Jewish Threat” by Bendersky. The trends he saw in 1940 are even more prominent today.
11 The Pardo
October 23, 1940
Mr. R. Douglas Stuart, Jr., Director,
America First Committee
1806 Board of Trade Building
Dear Mr. Stuart:
If I am to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated October 11, I must, in keeping with the principles which have always governed me, write you very frankly. At the outset, I must say that I am happy to know that your organization has chosen such a vital mission. But I wonder if you realize the difficulties of such a campaign and the real strength of the enemy – and are you prepared to go to battle with him and his tribe? A number of organizations have started out bravely with a mission similar to yours, but too often they have melted away before the enemy.
I have had considerable experience on this subject, for I tried to arouse the American people from their apathy, pointing out the dangers confronting us as a nation. But I stated the truth too frankly and so, for many months now, my pen and my voice have been silenced.
Early in my endeavors, I received an invitation to speak before the Union League Club of Chicago, an organization I remember from boyhood, which always marched in step with the Republic. No date had been fixed but when the enemy went after me in the public press the heroic Union League Club evidently lost their nerve and they did not renew their invitation.
What prevents America from being first today? Let me be frank and point out the enemy who would themselves be first in America today, and that is the Jewish nation, a nation within a nation. If you will investigate, as I have – crime, graft, filthy publications and unsavory movies, the liquor and drug traffic, the red light district, white slave traffic and WAR – you will arrive headon against a pack of Jews in control.
I am not going to take your time to discuss in this letter the age old problem of the Jew, but if you are interested, you can get all the evidence concerning his plans for world domination from the writings of Jews, themselves. You do not have to rely on the statement of any Gentile. Suffice it to say, however, that they have been driven out of every country in which they have been domiciled, and for good reason, and EVENTUALLY THEY WILL BE DRIVEN OUT OF THE U. S. A.
The Jew may tell you that there are only some four and a half million of them in the United States. The fact is, there are over thirteen million of them in the United States today. Formerly I felt sorry for the Member of Congress who could not face this problem frankly on account of Jewish influence in his district, but now I find the influence of Jews extends to every field. The banker, who may agree with me on principle just one hundred per cent, dares not touch this problem for some of his biggest depositors are Jews; many a lawyer will not face it for some of his big clients are Jews; the press cannot touch it, for so many of the big advertisers are Jews, and it is the advertiser who makes the paper pay. If we lack the character to face this problem squarely and solve it, we will experience the tragedy which overtook France.
I shall be glad to join your organization, assisting it as far as I am permitted to do so –
1. If you eliminate from your organization all Jews and all Jewish influences (they join all organizations and buy in on both political parties; then they keep themselves fully advised, and control or ruin);
2. If you will come out before the nation with a definite statement against the Jew and all he stands for, including the closing of our doors to all refugee Jews, of whatever nationality;
3. If you will take a definite stand against the control by Jews in local, state and national affairs;
4. If you will advocate the restoration of our REPUBLIC, bringing back in the written and spoken language throughout the United States the words, “Republic, Christ and Christian”.
If you will take the stand that I have suggested above, millions of Gentiles will rush to your banner. But if you fail to meet this issue squarely, your organization will accomplish nothing, except possibly to support a certain overhead, including perhaps several Jewish secretaries, placed with you for the purpose of spying upon you and your work.
You may not agree with me in what I have written above. Perhaps you will give this letter no consideration whatsoever, but may I ask you to preserve it, so that as the years roll by you may again read it, with the perspective of, say, ten or fifteen years. May I ask also that you make acknowledgment of it, for I plan to give copies of this letter to individuals over the land who know this problem and agree with me just one hundred per cent.
Enclosed herewith is a copy of a letter inviting me to meet Mr. Lewis L. Strauss of Kuhn, Loeb & Company, and my reply.
Very sincerely yours,
George Van Horn Moseley
