Book Review: Dr. David Duke’s “The Secret Behind Communism”

I decided to write this review of Dr. David Duke’s 2013 book The Secret Behind Communism which is subtitled The Ethnic Origins Of The Russian Revolution & The Greatest Holocaust In The History Of Mankind. This 285 page book is divided into 36 chapters.

As many of my readers are no doubt aware, David Duke has spent his life as a civil rights activist for the European people of America and the world –lecturing, authoring several books, running for political office, and hosting a radio program. Duke was a Louisiana state representative from 1989-1992.

Most Americans hate the term communism –whether they identify as conservative, libertarian, or patriot. But few understand where it came from. This book exposes the puppet masters of the international communist movement. As when studying the higher echelons of finance, one will learn that communism is as Kosher as a synagogue.

Let us begin at the beginning. Duke traveled to Russia and Ukraine, and even met Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008). Duke’s research in this book is very thorough, and his conclusions clear and defendable.

In the 1st chapter, titled Communism with the Mask Off, Duke tells of his own first exposure to the Jewish aspect to communism in his teens, back in the 1960s. While Karl Marx was a Jew, it goes much deeper than that!

On page 31, Duke quotes U.S. Army Captain Montgomery Schuyler, an American officer in Russia when the Bolshevik Revolution occurred. Schuyler stated that: “It is probably unwise to say this loudly in the United States, but the Bolshevik movement is and has been since its beginning, guided and controlled by Russian Jews of the greasiest type…”

I apologize for the length of this quote from page 32, but I must include it. Duke states: “In another report, written four months later, Captain Schuyler goes on to quote the evidence of Robert Wilton, who was then the chief Russian correspondent of the authoritative London Times…On June 9, 1919, Schuyler cites Wilton as follows: “A table made up in 1918, by Robert Wilton, correspondent of the London Times in Russia, shows at that time there were 384 commissars including 2 Negroes, 13 Russians, 15 Chinamen, 22 Armenians, and more than 300 Jews. Of the later number 264 had come from the United States since the downfall of the Imperial Government”.

The “Russian Revolution” was not Russian.

Your public school history book did not tell you that. Neither did your preacher, Fox News, the John Birch Society, the NRA, the Tea Party, Donald Trump, or the Republican Party.

Moses Hess is often credited with founding both communism and Zionism. Marx learned from Hess. Leon Trotsky –the prominent Bolshevik and leader of the Red Army -was a Jew with the birth name of Bronstein. The first leader of the Cheka secret police, the forerunner of the KGB, was a Jew named Moses Uritzky. When the Cheka had morphed into the NKVD, it was presided over by a brutal Jew named Genrikh Yagoda. On page 131 Duke quotes a Jewish author, Sever Plocker, concerning Yagoda. The Jew Plocker states: “Yagoda diligently implemented Stalin’s collectivization orders and is responsible for the deaths of at least 10 million people. His Jewish deputies established and managed the Gulag system”.

Even the prominent non-Jews -often were not that “non”. For example, Lenin was officially ¼ Jewish, was married to a Jew, and could speak Yiddish. Josef Stalin, a low level henchman who climbed to the top, employed a Jew named Lazar Kaganovich as one of his high level officials.

In addition to this, Duke goes into depth on the fall of the Romanov government, and the subsequent struggles between the Mensheviks and Bolshevik factions –both Jewish dominated of course. There is a reason that prominent Jewish banker Jacob Schiff could give $20 million, a huge sum at the time, to support the Bolshevik Revolution.

Duke also briefly covers the Jewish leaders of the other communist revolutions in Europe, such as Rosa Luxembourg in Germany, Bela Kun (Cohen) in Hungary, and Anna Pauker (Hannah Rabinsohn) of Romania. Further there is the Jew Markus Wolf, who was prominent in the dreaded East German Stasi for over three decades.

Duke also devotes a chapter to the three phases of when Jews came to America –the Sephardic, German, and Russia-Polish periods (in that order). Duke there mentions that Jewish historians try to prove that there were two (yes just 2) Jewish privates in the continental army. Wow, what a contribution to the war effort! On page 155 Duke also states that: “By 1830 -50 years after the Declaration of Independence, and 220 years after the founding of Jamestown –there were an estimated 10,000 Jews in the U.S., comprising perhaps 1/5 of 1 percent of the total population”. In 1830 America was still a rural, white, Christian nation.

Duke also gives coverage to the American Communist Party, and notes the large numbers of Jewish women historically in it. Duke lists around 50 high level Jews from the CPUSA.

Duke also covers how that the Cold war era communist spies in America were almost all Jews! Who do you think Nathan Gregory Silvermaster and the Rosenbergs were? Duke notes that there has been a “tribal shift”, and that now “American” Jews spy for Israel instead of for the Soviet Union (now Russia). Think Jonathan Pollard, for just one instance.

While a tad off subject, Duke also briefly mentions the Lavon Affair, the 1967 Israeli attack on the U.S.S. Liberty, the ADL, and the SPLC.

Duke also shows the Jewish influence in Hollywood, which I sometimes refer to as Kosherwood. It predated, and extended after, the 1950’s communist HUAC hearings.

Duke also shows the Jewish origins of the “Neoconservative” movement in present day America. It was “former” Trotskyite type Jews like Irving Kristol and Leo Strauss who helped subvert American conservatism. The neo-cons basically ran the foreign policy of the George W. Bush administration.

Dr. Duke also notes how the Jewish communists in South Africa used Nelson Mandela and other negroes to destroy that once great country.

One last noteworthy feature of this book is that Duke writes about the Soviet mass murder of the Ukrainian people, termed the Holodomor. Far more Europeans died in the Holodomor than the Most Holy Number 6 Million*. Hollywood has made sure that Holocaust movies are commonplace, but (((they))) do not commemorate the Holodomor in films. The reason is apparent.

This lengthy review of mine could perhaps be summed up by a statement Duke made on page 214. Duke declared: “Communism is not an economic movement, but a racial movement. Communism cannot be understood, or dealt with, on any other basis”.  This excellent statement sums up the theme of the book.

The Secret Behind Communism is a very nice, hardback, 285 page book with many black and white photos and documents reproduced. At around $35, it is a bit pricey. As evidenced by this review, I loved Dr. David Duke’s The Secret Behind Communism, and I recommend it to my blog readers.

(*I say that in sarcasm of the official story/fantasy).

  1. That communism is not thought to be a Jewish phenomenon, Mr. Putnam, is something unique to The West; this principally because discussing matters, in this way, is strictly forbidden.

    That said, the Tarheel Klan of my childhood said it loud and clear, over and over again.

    Most, however, (already by then somewhat deracinated and largely focuset on climbing the stairway to heaven – individual consumerist accumulation) laughed at them and thought them paranoick and more than a bit ‘over-the-top’.

    What may be of more interest to you is this – perhaps 6 or 7 years ago Jewish foundations launcht a suit in Czar Vlad’s Russia to set a precedent from which a new law cold be built.

    That suit?

    Suing to prevent those Russians, who blamed Jews for the Soviet nightmare that had so devastated their country, from so saying in the publick square.

    If memory serves, it went all the way up to the highest Russian court.

    And this judicial body ruled that, because communism was a Jewish idea, and because over 35% of leading Russian Communist Revolutionaries were known to be Jews (in a country whose population had less than 2%); and because many of these, such as Lavrenti Beria (brutal erstwhile KGB chief) were predominant in ushering in and presiding over the policies which led to the death of more than 30,000,000 Gentile Orthodox Russians 9during the 1920s and 30s) – it would NOT be historically accurate to forbid anyone from saying that The Jews had, indeed, perpetrated the worst disaster in Russia history; a conflagration which quite possibly was the greatest ‘holocaust’ known to man, since that term was invented by a monk to describe King Edward ‘Longshanks’ I driving the Jews out of England, in the 13th century.

    1. Hello Mr. Daniel,
      That is an interesting tidbit about the “Holocaust” narrative in Russia; I was unaware of that law suit. Six or seven years ago, when that suit happened, was when I was just starting to *seriously* do actual research for myself.

  2. Excellent article Joe.

    I think it is worth researching and expanding on this tidbit you cited in regards to there being only 1/5tb of 1% of the US population who were Jews in 1830. My guess would be that this was almost exclusively in merchant friendly port cities of high population density such as New York and New Orleans (as it essentially is today).

    If only more Southerners understood that the decades long, (even 2 centuries long) history of cultural besmirching that they have endured was first and foremost a manifestation of the urbanite nature of the Jew. That’s probably an article worth writing.

  3. Glad that you liked the essay Spencer.
    I agree with you that an article on Jewish population numbers and geographical dispersion would make an interesting piece. I would tend to assume as you do that most Jews are -and have always been- in cities, especially East Cost ones.
    Federal census data before 1850 is rather scant in info depth, and Jews would probably have been classified as whites for census purposes. Jewish sites might have data on this kind of subject, but I have not checked that angle yet. So many trails to follow…
    Regarding your mention of the “2 centuries long” cultural war, I do know that Haym Solomon was a Jewish banker who engaged in financing and paper money games on behalf of the 13 Colonies during the American Revolution. Even back then they were already scheming.

    1. At Spencer…

      ‘Regarding your mention of the “2 centuries long” cultural war, I do know that Haym Solomon was a Jewish banker who engaged in financing and paper money games on behalf of the 13 Colonies during the American Revolution. Even back then they were already scheming.’

      The scheming, Sir, began millennia before there was even one single White Man here.

      By the time The New World began, they came here fully in possession of all the techniques that would make them the rulers of this land, something which they have been for at least one century, already.

      Unfortunately, they have collaborators – Gentiles who prefer to be ruled…

  4. @Mr. Putnam…

    ‘I would tend to assume as you do that most Jews are -and have always been- in cities, especially East Cost ones.’


    No, sir, that assumption is, in The South, inaccurate.

    Speaking for Eastern North Carolina, Jews were very prevalent in small and medium size towns. Going back to my childhood, they were, inevitably, those who ran the department stores and banks, and, as well, many many pawn shoppes, jewelry stores, pharmacies, and restaurants. At that time, they also financet many endeavours, such as car dealerships and invested heavily in mortgages.

    There were even synagogues in the larger towns, such as Tarboro, Greenville, and Kinston, though, only the one in Greenville has survived (this because of the school of East Carolina – and the huge influx of dollars that come with it)

    Jews, however, though they are still to be found all over Eastern Carolina, are much less visible these days. This primarily results from the fact that the small town economies have been wreckt and rigged by a treacherous and tyrannical Federal Government that has forcet integration on us (and replacet hard-working Negro share-croppers with indolent drug-ridden welfare dependents) and, simultaneously, which has been paid off to allow most of our industry to be outsourcet.

    The money we uset to make is largely gone, and, thus, we are reliant largely on welfare subsidies from those who have robbed and destroyed us – just enough bribery money so that we don’t get so desperate that we start to look for those who have betrayed us, with rope in hand.

    Thus, the several generations of Jews, who formerly ran these businesses, have died, and their heirs moved onto to the large Federal centres of Southern occupation, such as Raleigh, Greenville, and Charlotte, where the money seems in endless abundance.
