General Moseley and the Jews

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
Atlanta, Georgia
October 23, 1940

Mr. R. Douglas Stuart, Jr., Director,
America First Committee
1806 Board of Trade Building
Chicago, Illinois

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


  1. When was the last time an American leader of any stature or significance was able to criticize Jews in public without being marginalized and villified? Henry Ford tried to sound the alarm in the 1920s and didn’t achieve anything.

  2. 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”.

  3. From George Van Horn Moseley – Wikipedia:

    Like many officers in the 1930s, General Moseley viewed Jews as a problem and opposed their immigration as well as what was believed to be Jewish interference with American foreign policy.

    More details from TOQ-Kevin MacDonald-Bendersky BR-Vol 1 No 2:

    Joseph Bendersky’s book is a history of the conflict between an increasingly powerful Jewish group and a declining Northern European group as revealed in the writings of U.S. Army officers gleaned from the files of the Military Intelligence Division (MID) of the War Department. As recounted by Bendersky, Americans of Northern European descent in the United States thought of themselves as part of a cultural and ethnic heritage extending backward in time to the founding of the country. The Anglo?Saxon heritage of the British Isles was at the center of this self?conception, but Americans of German and Scandinavian descent also viewed themselves as part of this ethnic and cultural inheritance. They had a great deal of pride in their accomplishments. They believed that their civilization was a product of their own unique ingenuity and skills, and they believed that it would not survive if other peoples were allowed to play too large a role in it.

    Christianity was a deeply embedded aspect of the culture of the Northern Europeans, but it played a remarkably small role in the battles with the emerging Jewish elite. Far more important for framing these battles were Darwinian theories of race. The early part of the 20th century was the high water mark of Darwinism in the social sciences. It was common at that time to think that there were important differences between the races ?- that races differed in intelligence and in moral qualities. Not only did races differ, but they were in competition with each other for supremacy. Schooled in the theories of Madison Grant, Lothrop Stoddard, Henry Pratt Fairchild, William Ripley, Gustav Le Bon, Charles Davenport, and William McDougall, this generation of U.S. military officers viewed themselves as members of a particular race and believed that racial homogeneity was the sine qua non of every stable nation state. They regarded their racial group as uniquely talented and possessed of a high moral sense.

    But, more importantly, whatever the talents and vulnerabilities of their race, they held it in the highest importance to retain control over the lands they had inherited as a result of the exploits of their ancestors who had conquered the continent and tamed the wilderness. And despite the power that their race held at the present, there was dark foreboding about the future, reflected in the titles of some of the classic works of the period: Grant’s The Passing of the Great Race and Stoddard’s The Rising Tide of Color Against White World Supremacy and The Revolt Against Civilization: The Menace of the Under?Man.

    This world of Northern European cultural pride and self?confident hegemony has vanished, and there can be little doubt that the rise of the Jews and the decline of Northern Europeans are causally linked. Bendersky’s book is as much a marker of that transformation as it is an extraordinary record of an important arena in the conflict between Jews and Northern Europeans. Bendersky’s sense of intellectual and moral superiority and his contempt for his Northern European subjects ooze from every page. The book is a triumphalist history written by someone whose sympathies are with the winners of the intellectual and political wars of the 20th century.

    Three thoughts occur to me. First, the existence, statements, and mainstream acceptance of men like Moseley puts the lie to suggestions, very popular today, that the current anti-White/pro-jew regime represents some kind of “White suicide”. White men warned of the threat decades ago, tried to counter it, and are now vilified for doing so. The regime is today officially focused on the “White Threat“. Second, these White men were defeated mainly by being smeared and discredited as extremists who were imagining things, though now in retrospect it is clear they underestimated a real threat. Third, this is not a good precedent for anyone who pins our last, best hopes on a revolt led by today’s more diversified, deracinated military leadership.

  4. I’m still waiting for my friend to write back about this.

    He has all the names and dates and whatnot. I think I deleted the old email that had it all in there.
