|Senator McCarthy heeds the instrument of his downfall.|
There are mainstream accounts of the political career of Senator Joseph R. McCarthy that make no bones about the fact that the overwhelming majority of federal employees that he exposed as posing a security-risk were Jews. McCarthy had hardly gained notice as an anti-Communist before he was being called anti-Semitic and compared to Hitler, for example by a syndicated columnist who described McCarthyism thus:
This plot was anti-Semitic in origin and intention, following the crooked logic of the fascist-minded, who say that all Communists are Jews and, therefore, all Jews are Communists. [Marquis Childs, 27 December 1950]
Obviously it was widely understood that a very large portion (of course not “all”) of Communists and pro-Communists were Jews; otherwise the complaint that McCarthyism was intrinsically anti-Semitic would make no sense. For some reason, however, it has been the practice of lame conservatives, when writing about McCarthy, to avoid mentioning that fact, as if it were not long-established common knowledge.
Whom do these lame conservatives think they are fooling by not saying that most of the security-risks that McCarthy discovered were Jews? Certainly they are not fooling Jews, who already know it. This kind of tippy-toeing around key facts only allows the non-Jewish majority to remain in amnesia and confusion about what happened.
As a matter of fact, the overwhelming Jewishness of Communism in the United States is the central fact in Senator McCarthy’s rise and fall, and the key to understanding what happened to him.
George Lincoln Rockwell’s This Time the World recounts DeWest Hooker’s explanation of how Jews set up and then brought down the anti-Communist crusade of Senator Joseph McCarthy. Here is a spoken summary of it, emphasizing the moral of the story, from a talk that Rockwell gave in 1965:
And here is the excerpt from Rockwell’s book, with more detail (and a correction from me):
My first meeting with Hooker was on a Thanksgiving Day, when he was due at a family dinner, but we got so totally absorbed in our discussion that he kept his wife waiting hours, until she was very angry at him. As we talked, he told me one amazing thing after the other.
Wes explained the Jews to me more clearly than I had ever figured out before. He described, with dramatic gestures, how they operate like a snake with different skins, which they crawl out of or into as the strategic need may arise.
When Jewish Communism begins to get too “hot,” as it has here in the U.S., because of the millions who saw the parade of Jew Communist spies, they slide out of that skin and become Zionists. And when this also gets too hot, then they molt and become “anti-communists” or something else. In the excitement, nobody ever seems to notice that it is always the same snake.
Even more enlightening, he gave me a sparkling clear picture of the mess I had come to know on my own as the “movement” — the cowards, the loud-mouths, the hobbyists, the ADL agents, the “prostitutes” who make money out of it — the whole depressing lot of them.
This energetic young genius then told me the astonishing and accurate inside story of Joe McCarthy, completely winning me with his way of fathoming and presenting the vital information about enemy operations which had so far baffled me. Every step of the way, he showed me documents, newspaper clippings and photostats to back up the story about how Joe McCarthy got started, rose, and was finally ruined.
He told me that Bernard Baruch had started it all, when too many Jew spies were becoming prominent. Baruch called Joe up to his New York apartment — here, Hooker showed me a clipping from The New York Times — and told him that there was need of an anti-communist crusade, but that there was an unfortunate idea getting around that Communism was Jewish, because of so many Jew spies. Would Joe conduct a good, exciting Red hunt, being a little “fairer” by digging up some non-Jewish spies? If Joe would do this, Bernie would see that there was good publicity and advancement in it for Joe. McCarthy could smell the aroma of this deal, but, like many a shabbez goy before him, he imagined he could out-fox the Jew. When the time came, he would use the publicity and backing to drag out ALL the Communists, Jew and Gentile alike.
So Joe agreed to conduct the great hunt and began in Wheeling, West Virginia. He promised to identify the “master Red agent” in America, and made a lot of charges about Communism in the State Department.
Then he was approached by his “good Jew” friend, George Sokolsky, the columnist, who warned him of the danger of being accused of being an “anti-Semite,” because of the “fortuitous” presence of so many Jews in the Communist apparatus. “Why not guard against this by taking a ‘good’ Jew on as head of your staff?” wheedled George. “Then they couldn’t say you were anti-Semitic!”
Joe thought this advice was pretty good and George just “happened” to have in mind the right Jew — Roy Cohn. The matter was soon arranged and Cohn the Jew became the organizer of “McCarthyism.”*
Then Cohn approached fighting Joe and suggested that, since they needed contributions and more help, and wanted to be doubly sure they would not be accused of “anti-Semitism,” it might be wise to hire a wonderful, rich young Jew friend of his, Dave Schine, for the staff. Again, McCarthy went along with this brilliant stroke.
When all was in readiness, McCarthy duly brought out his “big red fish,” as promised, which turned out to be a college professor named Owen Lattimore — a Gentile! Nobody had heard much of him, before or since, but in the middle of the trials of more than twenty Jewish Soviet spies, Lattimore was dragged back and forth in the press as the real red herring, a Gentile herring, with suitable screaming back and forth by both “sides.” Bernie had done a fine job.
McCarthy, through all of this, figured he was smarter than his manipulators and, when a Republican got into power, he would then go after ALL the reds, Jew and Gentile, and let the chips fall where they might. However, for the moment, he rested on his laurels as the man the Jew papers and the Communist Daily Worker were screaming about, the man who had been set up by a Jew, advised by a Jew, and staffed by two Jews.
The loyal and hard-working staff now set about displaying “McCarthyism” to the world. Cohn and Schine, the two Jews, made a whirlwind tour of Europe, visiting libraries of the U.S. Information Service which are, as a matter of fact, loaded with red and pink propaganda. But they did not do a responsible job exposing and stopping this rotten use of U.S. taxpayers’ money to spread Marxism. Instead, they threw tantrums for the press, threw books on the floor and acted like two idiots. Nobody noticed that they were two Jews, but everybody came to equate “McCarthyism” with insanity, thanks to the wide press coverage these two received!
The presidential election was now in full swing and McCarthy went to bat for Ike, dreaming sneakily of the day he would not have Truman to stop him — the day he could really dig out Communists, no matter how many of them were Jews! Sure enough, Ike was elected and McCarthy pulled the plug, floored the accelerator, touched off the boosters and let go with all he had.
He went to Fort Monmouth, to our most secret radar laboratories and discovered 41 people with atrocious security records and red backgrounds. Of these 41, 39 were Jews! Then he found a Jew dentist named Irving Peress, who had been caught red-handed committing perjury in denying his red record. McCarthy asked the Defense Department to look into it and report the circumstances. Instead of doing this, the Anna Rosenberg-dominated Army promoted Peress and mustered him out, beyond reach of court-martial — in one day!
McCarthy, righteously lusting for blood, went after Irving and demanded to know who promoted this Communist. He would have eventually found his way to Anna, the writer of articles for The New Masses and a member of a Communist John Reed Club. Perhaps the trail would have led him up to Secretary Marshall, who boasted that he personally disarmed the Nationalist Chinese with a stroke of his pen, thus turning China over to Communism.
So McCarthy’s two Jew “assistants,” Cohn and Schine, went into action again. Schine was drafted into the Army and Cohn, in McCarthy’s name, called and tried to obtain favors for him by influence. This corrupt action was a perfect red herring to take the heat off those who promoted a Communist Jew dentist, guilty of perjury, and who mustered him out before he could be court-martialed.
Once more, the two Jews who had created “McCarthyism” and given it a bad reputation — not Joe McCarthy — were the source of dirty dealing which caused the downfall of a truly brave and great-hearted man.
When Hooker had finished this utterly devastating and unanswerable display of the manipulative genius of the Jews, and his own genius at figuring it out, I was staggered by the enormity of it all![Rockwell, This Time the World, ch. XI]
* Rockwell gives an oversimplified chronology here. It was only after the election of 1952, when the Republicans won a majority in the Senate and McCarthy became chairman of the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, that Roy Cohn and G. David Schine were added to McCarthy’s staff. Thus, although Cohn played the key role in McCarthy’s downfall, it is inaccurate to suggest that Cohn was from the beginning the organizer of McCarthyism. McCarthyism was launched with a speech on 9 February 1950, and for some time McCarthy enjoyed considerable popular support. The role of Cohn and Schine was to draw McCarthy into embarrassing conflicts after 1952.
