Popular fringe cranks like Kevin MacDonald, not to mention hoards of internet followers, love to draw extensive and obscure connections between Jews and everything. Some people assert that Hitler was an agent of the rabbis. The amount of control and foresight they attribute to these people is nothing short of mystical. Ludwig von Mises put it best in Omnipotent Government when he said,
Except for Christianity, the Nazis reject as Jewish everything which stems from Jewish authors. This condemnation includes the writings of those Jews who, like Stahl, Lassalle, Gumplowicz, and Rathenau, have contributed many essential ideas to the system of Nazism. But the Jewish mind is, as the Nazis say, not limited to the Jews and their offspring only. Many “Aryans” have been imbued with Jewish mentality—for instance the poet, writer, and critic Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, the socialist Frederick Engels, the composer Johannes Brahms, the writer Thomas Mann, and the theologian Karl Barth. They too are damned. Then there are whole schools of thought, art, and literature rejected as Jewish. Internationalism and pacifism are Jewish, but so is warmongering. So are liberalism and capitalism, as well as the “spurious” socialism of the Marxians and of the Bolsheviks. The epithets Jewish and Western are applied to the philosophies of Descartes and Hume, to positivism, materialism and empiro-criticism, to the economic theories both of the classics and of modern subjectivism. Atonal music, the Italian opera style, the operetta and the paintings of impressionism are also Jewish. In short, Jewish is what any Nazi dislikes. If one put together everything that various Nazis have stigmatized as Jewish, one would get the impression that our whole civilization has been the achievement only of Jews.
Doubtless someone will cite the fact that Mises himself was a jew, and therefor is simply covering their tracks. Any race as omniscient and omnipresent as some of these white (and black) nationalists imagine the Jews to be clearly deserve to rule of the human race. Obviously, they are superior to Europeans (and everyone else).
The Jews Made Me Stupid!
But, as a matter of fact, jews are superior to everyone else; though they are largely white they are the product of selective breeding for traits like wealth and social status and have formed elaborate counter-social organizations for their own advancement. This is supposed to be a sign of their wickedness, in fact it is a sign of their independence. Other than their persistent (and marginally justified) fear of the goyim, and inveterate political liberalism, jews hold their positions legitimately and through superior acumen. Even those jews who have gotten a job through nepotism have usually gotten it because of the superior ability of their patron. Nonetheless, the jews are not part of some vast, all encompassing conspiracy to foist capitalist-communism (you have to love Nazis, they can say this with a straight face) upon the world. No one is part of any such conspiracy – the socialists and democrats are, for that matter, quite open about their desire to spread pseudo-market socialism around the globe. The West has not been lost because of Jewish machinations, it has been lost because WASP elites are suicidal idiots.
