The views of the Authors are not necessarily the views of Enigmose.
Karl Marx was an ardent rcaist as was his co-conspirator, Frederick Engels. Socialism and communism were hotbeds of anti-semitism and racism in the early years. In the 1930s the Western Socialist realm divided itself into the Nazi wing and the Stalinist wing. Contrary to current day dogma, yes - the Nazis were inded socialists who emphasized the racial aspects of the socialist dementia, as opposed to the Stalinist faction, which concentrated more heavily on sewing strife via socio-economic class warfare.
For Marx, racism wasn’t contradictory to his ideological views. Marx believed, as did many leftists of his time, that for “progress” to take place, some ethnicities had to be eliminated and figuratively devoured by more advanced and powerful nations. Much like Margaret Sanger, the founder of planned parenthood, who believed the Negro race should be eugenically abolished as they were "human weeds that should never have been born".
Marx's Utopia preached that there would eventually be no need for nations, because the workers of the world could unite without the need for countries. But before that could occur, the "less evolved" elements of humanity would need to be eliminated this was inevitable he believed.
Karl Marx Quotes on Blacks
“The Jewish nigger Lassalle who, I’m glad to say, is leaving at the end of this week, has happily lost another 5,000 talers in an ill-judged speculation. The chap would sooner throw money down the drain than lend it to a ‘friend,’ even though his interest and capital were guaranteed. … It is now quite plain to me—as the shape of his head and the way his hair grows also testify—that he is descended from the negroes who accompanied Moses’ flight from Egypt (unless his mother or paternal grandmother interbred with a nigger). Now, this blend of Jewishness and Germanness, on the one hand, and basic negroid stock, on the other, must inevitably give rise to a peculiar product. The fellow’s importunity is also nigger-like.” Karl Marx, “Marx to Friedrich Engels in Manchester,” 1862
Tremaux “proved that the common Negro type is the degenerate form of a much higher one … a very significant advance over Darwin.” Karl Marx, letter to Friedrich Engels, August 7, 1866
“Without slavery, North America, the most progressive of countries, would be transformed into a patriarchal country. Wipe out North America from the map of the world and you will have anarchy— the complete decay of modern commerce and civilization. Abolish slavery and you will have wiped America off the map of nations.” Karl Marx, “The Poverty of Philosophy,” 1847
The Nazis would never admit to being influenced by Marx, after all he was a Jew [He was born Jewish and his family converted to Lutheranism] but admit it or not, Hitler and Marx held very similiar views on Jews as is evidenced not only by his work "On the Jewish Question", but it can be found scattered throughout his writings.
“Take Amsterdam, for instance, a city harboring many of the worst descendants of the Jews whom Ferdinand and Isabella drove out of Spain and who, after lingering a while in Portugal, were driven out of there too and eventually found a place of retreat in Holland. … Here and there and everywhere that a little capital courts investment, there is ever one of these little Jews ready to make a little suggestion or place a little bit of a loan. The smartest highwayman in the Abruzzi is not better posted about the locale of the hard cash in a traveler’s valise or pocket than these little Jews about any loose capital in the hands of a trader … These small Jewish agents draw their supplies from the big Jewish houses … and practice great ostensible devotion to the religion of their race.” Karl Marx, “The Russian Loan,” 1856
“What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money. … Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist. Money degrades all the gods of man—and turns them into commodities. … The bill of exchange is the real god of the Jew. His god is only an illusory bill of exchange. … The chimerical nationality of the Jew is the nationality of the merchant, of the man of money in general.” Karl Marx, “On the Jewish Question,” 1844
“Thus we find every tyrant backed by a Jew, as is every Pope by a Jesuit. In truth, the cravings of oppressors would be hopeless, and the practicability of war out of the question, if there were not an army of Jesuits to smother thought and a handful of Jews to ransack pockets. … The fact that 1,855 years ago Christ drove the Jewish money-changers out of the temple, and that the money-changers of our age, enlisted on the side of tyranny, happen again to be Jews is perhaps no more than a historic coincidence.” Karl Marx, “The Russian Loan,” 1856
“The expulsion of a Leper people from Egypt, at the head of whom was an Egyptian priest named Moses. Lazarus, the leper, is also the basic type of the Jew.” Karl Marx, letter to Friedrich Engels, May 10, 1861
“Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were fantasy-mongers, that the Israelites were idolators … that the tribe of Simeon (exiled under Saul) had moved to Mecca where they built a heathenish temple and worshipped stones.” Karl Marx, letter to Engels, June 16, 1864
To add a little irony to the confused writings of Herr Marx, 1853 has him condemning the race that would later bring his failed ideology to the forefront under Lenin and Stalin. Russian Communism which came to be known as "Marxism-Leninism" when Lenin adapted Marxist doctrine to his particular situation. Marx and Engels were racist antisemitic German nationalists who viewed Russians as a lower form of human. Lenin concentrated on the class aspects of Marxism and, largely ignored the racial undertones. The racial undertones would be revived under Stalin. Had Stalin not died when he did, asassination is suspected, he had planned an exiling, at the very least, most of the Jewish population.
“Russia is a name usurped by the Muscovites. They are not Slavs, do not belong at all to the Indo-German race, but are des intrus [intruders], who must again he hurled back beyond the Dnieper, etc.” Karl Marx, letter to Friedrich Engels, June 24, 1865
The Indo-German race is what Hitler would later define as Aryan, both Marx and Engels held views in line with "Aryan Superiority"
“This splendid territory [the Balkans] has the misfortune to be inhabited by a conglomerate of different races and nationalities, of which it is hard to say which is the least fit for progress and civilization. Slavonians, Greeks, Wallachians, Arnauts, twelve millions of men, are all held in submission by one million of Turks, and up to a recent period, it appeared doubtful whether, of all these different races, the Turks were not the most competent to hold the supremacy which, in such a mixed population, could not but accrue to one of these nationalities.” Karl Marx, “The Russian Menace to Europe,” 1853
Friedrich Engels, Marxs' sidekick and partner in crime was also a racist, his views are more in line with National Socialism. Engels died in 1895, when Hitler was only 6 years old. Hitler would mature to embrace views which are largely indistinquishable from those of Engels.
"True, it is a fixed idea with the French that the Rhine is their property, but to this arrogant demand the only reply worthy of the German nation is Arndt's: "Give back Alsace and Lorraine". For I am of the opinion, perhaps in contrast to many whose standpoint I share in other respects, that the reconquest of the German-speaking left bank of the Rhine is a matter of national honour, and that the Germanisation of a disloyal Holland and of Belgium is a political necessity for us. Shall we let the German nationality be completely suppressed in these countries, while the Slavs are rising ever more powerfully in the East?"
The above quote could just as easily have come from Hitler, Himmler or any number of other National Socialists - it came from Frederick Engels.
This is our calling, that we shall become the templars of this Grail, gird the sword round our loins for its sake and stake our lives joyfully in the last, holy war which will be followed by the thousand-year reign of freedom - Engels.
I intend to set up a thousand-year Reich and anyone who supports me in this battle is a fellow-fighter for a unique spiritual—I would say divine—creation.. - Hitler
Hitler The Ultimate Progressive Nazi Socialism is Socialism
'We are socialists, we are enemies of today's capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak' Adolph Hitler
That Hitler and his National Socialist Party were mainstream socialists is a fact that modern Day leftists would much rather sweep under the carpet. Like it or not, he was a mainstream Left wing socialist vieing for support of the world socialists with their arch rivals within the spheres of socialism , the Communists. Unlike his rival in the socialist realm, he came to power via a democratic election, not by way of a violent revolution or a coup, as was the case in Russia. Read More
Russian Origins of Black Neo-Marxism
“White” does not mean white. “White” in radical parlance means anyone of any race, creed, nationality, color, sex, or sexual preference who embraces capitalism, free markets, limited government, and American traditional culture and values.”
This philosophical concept belongs to Noel Ignatiev, a white American of Russian origin, who is the ideological founding father of numerous radical black movements in America. The author of this concept was even lucky enough to see his best students -- Black Lives Matter (BLM) -- in action. Read More
