How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!…This is the work of the Lord God of hosts…

— Jeremiah 50:23, 25

Communism was solely the invention of the Jews.

— Sir Winston Churchill London Illustrated Herald (February 8, 1920)

The most brutal, murderous, and monstrous gang of all time was the Communist regime in Soviet Russia, the U.S.S.R. According to noted historian Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, sixty-six million people perished in the Soviet gulag concentration camps and in the liquidation of the farmers and small businessmen. (1) In contrast, the notorious Adolf Hitler and his Nazis were pikers. The real holocaust happened in the Soviet Union, and many of those deaths and torments occurred before the Nazis had built a single camp. Hitler and Himmler must have been green with envy.

What is most surprising—at least to the uninformed general public —is that few today are even aware of the Soviet Holocaust. Because of the Jewish ownership of the Western media, all the emphasis is put on the crimes of the Nazis. The horrors of the Red Terror are neglected. Maybe more remarkable, in many media and academic circles, the monsters who committed the atrocities in Soviet Russia —led by Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, Kaganovich, Beria and others—are often adored, being cast in a favorable light. This is especially true of Lenin and, to a lesser extent, the theoretical, so-called “founder” of Communist ideology, the German Karl Marx.

Communist Leaders of Jewish Bloodline

The reason why the Western media, owned and run as it is by Jewish interests, fails to expose the Communist butchery is easy to discern. The instigators and leaders of Communism were virtually all of the Jewish race and bloodline! The Lenin Museum in Russia today admits that Vladimir Lenin was a crypto-Jew (a “crypto Jew is a Jew who keeps his race hidden from public knowledge). Trotsky, his deputy in crime and mass murder, was a Jew who had lived in the Bronx, New York under his real name, Lev Bronstein. Stalin, the third leg of the Soviet troika, was half-Jew, and Yiddish was the only language spoken in his boyhood home in Georgia. Stalin’s real surname was Dzhugashvilli—Jewish. (2)

Karl Marx was a German Jew whose grandfather was a rabbi, and the entire Communist Bolshevik revolution was financed by the Jewish Rothschilds and Jewish Warburgs in Germany, in partnership with the Jewish Warburgs and Jewish Schiffs in the United States.

Communism was Jewish from the ground up. Marx’s view and his classic texts, The Capitalists and The Communist Manifesto, were ideological expressions of the Jewish Cabala, which is also the basis for Marx’s theory of dialectical materialism and economic class evolution, specific throwbacks to Hegelian dialectics and Weishaupt’s Illuminism. Albert Pike’s writings in Morals and Dogma are also right out of the Jewish Cabala aquarium. It seems that the piranhas, the killer “fish” of humanity, all swam in the same polluted pond: Jewish Cabalism and rabbinical magic and despotism.

From Lenin to Putin, we have a straight-line succession of Jewish Cabalism under the guise of Communism and now, “Democratic Capitalism” under Gorbachev, Yeltsin and Putin. (3)

Writing in his provocative, fact-filled expose, Bloodlines of the Illuminati, researcher Fritz Springmeier reveals how incestuously Jewish the rulers of Russia have been, including their spouses. First, he notes that Stalin married the daughter of his number 2 man, the Jew Kaganovich. Also:

The wife of Boris Yeltsin is the daughter of Joseph Stalin from Stalin’s marriage with Rosa Kaganovich. Rosa’s father was Illuminati…Boris Yeltsin and Rosa are secretly Jewish.

Lenin was married to a Jewish wife, Krupsakaya. Molotov married a Jewess, too. And Stalin was married to Jewess Kaganovich. Kaganovich’s powerful brother Lazar is in the Politburo, and Lazar’s son, Mikhail Kaganovich, married Stalin’s daughter, Svetlana. Boris Yeltsin’s original (Jewish name) was Baruch Ellia. He in turn is a good friend of David Rockefeller. (4)

Communism the Invention of Jews

So dominant was the Jewish influence in the Communist regime and its bloody Red Terror that Sir Winston Churchill, in the London Illustrated Herald newspaper, stated that, “Communism was solely the invention of the Jews.” (5) And, he added, it is not a new thing, for the Jews are historically the people who have fomented bloody revolutions and horrors. Churchill said the Jewish global revolutionary plot can be traced back to the days of Adam Weishaupt and his Bavarian Order of the Illuminati (1776).

Churchill went on to emphasize that this “worldwide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization, and the reconstruction of society…has been steadily growing.” Now, he warns, this band of thugs and murders “have become the undisputed masters of the enormous Russian empire.” (6)

Solzhenitsyn records that over 60 percent of the Commissars who headed Gulag camps in the U.S.S.R. were Jewish. Other historians estimate the number at 80 percent. Every leader of the dreaded Checka, KGB and secret police was Jewish, including the butcher Beria.

May Day—Illuminism and Communism

It is interesting to note that that Adam Weishaupt, infamous founder of the Illuminati, founded his group on May 1. It was exactly that day that the Communists under Lenin celebrated. Annually on May 1, the huge May Day parade is held in Moscow.

Is it a mere accident that the most holy day of paganism and witchcraft, Beltane, is also celebrated on May 1? On that day, in pagan Europe, children and adults celebrated around the phallus symbol known as the May Pole, even as witches howled at the moon. (7)

Of Wolves and Freemasons

In his expose of Communism, Under the Sign of the Scorpion, Swedish writer and researcher Jiiri Lina, writes how in his last months, a mad Vladimir Lenin, his body and brain racked with the sexually transmitted disease syphilis, demanded each night to be taken out on his balcony in his wheelchair. There, for hours, the angry Lenin would howl and bay at the moon like a wounded wolf. (8)

Lenin, Stalin, Marx and all the other top Communist leaders were all Freemasons. Gorbachev, too, and Yeltsin were Masons, members of the Grand Orient Lodge of France as well as the Soviet Consistory.

Albert Mackey, 33°, former Sovereign Grand Commander, in his authoritative Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, states that Alexander Kerensky (Lenin’s immediate predecessor) and the other plotters of the 1917 revolution against the Czar were Masons: “The first Revolution in March 1917 is said to have been operated from these (Masonic) Lodges and all the members of Kerensky’s government belonged to them.” (9)

All Masonic organizations throughout the world are secretly run by Jewish masters operating behind-the-scenes. (10)

I also have documentation to prove that Marx, Lenin, and most other Communist

leaders were homosexual perverts. Most, like Beria, were pedophiles as well, and they all enjoyed brutalizing and degrading women. The wives of these homosexual led miserable lives. One of Stalin’s wives committed sucide. (11)

Signs and Symbols of Communism

Seeing as how the Communist founders and leaders have all been apostate Jews into Cabalism, Freemasonry, and blatant satanism (Marx was an official High Priest in a satanic church), we can be sure the signs and symbols of Communism are also of cabalistic/Masonic/satanic origins, as is the color red so fanatically adored by the Communist wackos. Let us now examine these signs and symbols of the Red Murderers, e.g. the Communists.

The Clenched Fist

In all nations where Communist politicians and insurgents operate, these evil men and women invariably identify themselves by making the sign of the clenched fist. Some biblical authorities say that, “The clenched fist represents the (rebellious) attitude of the people of Babylon toward God.” (12)

The closed, or clenched fist is, in the Illuminist Philosophy, the symbol of secrecy, dissimulation, and hermeticism. It veils and conceals secrets from the “profane” and the “vulgar” (the non-Illuminists). Interestingly, the meaning is the same in the canons of Buddhism. (13)

Dr. Peter Ruckman, in his fascinating study of things occulticly black and evil, mockingly titled Black is Beautiful, comments about the raised, clenched fist:

You will find this ‘salute’ being given by all members of the Communist Party in New York, in the 1920s and by the (Stalinist) Abraham Lincoln Brigade, during the civil war in Spain in the 1930s.

By some quirk of ‘fate,’ this salute was adopted by the Black Panthers in America during the 1960s…the followers of Martin Luther King called it the ‘BLACK POWER’ salute. (14)

Liberal Afro-American leaders continue to employ this salute to this day. Jesse Jackson does it almost as an automatic response.

The clenched fist salute, or hand sign, is well-known in Freemasonry. The First Sign, or Due-guard, in the ritual of the Select Master Degree is the holding up, or raising, of both arms in an “L” (square) position with the fists of both hands clenched. The lecture for this degree in Richardson’s Monitor of Freemasonry states:

The signs of a Select Master are then given as follows: The first is similar to the sign of a Master Mason. The fists are both clenched, in allusion to one of the penalties of the obligation, which is to have both hands chopped off to the stumps. (15)

How interesting. Ironically, according to the Masons, the symbol of the clenched fist relates to having the hand chopped off at the stump. Communists out there: Maybe you should listen to what your cronies in Freemasonry are teaching you.

In the initiation for the Secret Monitor Degree of the Lodge, the sign of the clenched fist is given in remarkably similar fashion to the Communist salute, with one hand and arm.

Hammer and Sickle

The sickle is a universal symbol of the Grim Reaper; that is, a symbol of death. However, the Communists would maintain that the hammer and sickle represent workers, or laborers, the proletariat, or common people whom the Communist leadership represents.

Perhaps the hammer has other relevant meanings, however, which are concealed by the satanic Illuminists who sponsored — and continue to sponsor Communism. The Herder Dictionary of Symbols says the hammer “symbolizes power and strength” and notes, “In some cultures magical protective powers against evil are ascribed to ritually forged hammers.”

Every Masonic Lodge has a gavel, or hammer, wielded by the “Worshipful Master” or other potentate in charge. In her celebrated dark work, The Secret Doctrine, Theosophy founder Helena Blavatsky reveals that the god of forces (Lucifer) renders the “divine hammer” and it is the “mallet or gavel of the Grand Masters of Masonic Lodges.” (16)

Sarah Terry, a member of the Masonic-aligned group, the Eastern Star, traces the gavel, or hammer, back to the hammer of the Nordic sun god, Thor, and says it is an emblem of power. (17)

If we realize that the Illuminati’s chief goal is the rebuilding of Babylon in a desperate bid to undo what God did as recorded in the Book of Genesis, the significance of this Bible verse relating to the prophesied destruction of Babylon by God’s might becomes clear:

A sound of battle is in the land, and of great destruction. How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken. How is Babylon become a desolation among the nations…The Lord hath opened his armory, and hath brought forth the weapons of his indignation; for this is the work of the Lord God of Hosts. (Jeremiah 50:22-25)

Red Star

The Red Star is perhaps Communism’s best-known symbol. I have examined the occultic meaning of the five-pointed star in previous chapters, so I simply reiterate here that the star is a sign of false gods and specifically of the god of Illuminism, Lucifer, the solar deity who comes disguised and is worshipped by the deceived Illuminati as “Angel of Light” and as the “Blazing Star.”

Incidentally, so popular is the Red Star in Russia that in late 2000, under pressure from military brass and segments of public opinion, Vladimir Putin, Russia’s President, brought back the Soviet red banner as the military’s flag and agreed to reinstate the Soviet-era red star as the Russian military’s official emblem.

“The star is sacred to all servicemen,” said Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov, who spoke at a meeting of Putin’s top generals attended by Putin. (18)

Oddly enough—or understandably enough for those in the know —the red star is often seen on U.S.A. military vehicles and uniforms. It became a staple during World War II, under the direction of the Pentagon’s “red brass” leadership put in place by Zionist fanatic President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his ever watchful guardian, Jewish financier Bernard Baruch. (No wonder General Eisenhower’s West Point yearbook called Ike the “Swedish Jew.”)

The Color Red

But why the color red? Could it have a relationship with the Bible’s identification of the whore of Babylon as the woman in scarlet?

Also in the Bible, we find that Esau was born red (Genesis 25:25), and God says, “I have hated Esau.”

The color red has a long and non-illustrious history of whoredom and violence. In pre-Vedic India, the people worshipped a primitive form of Shiva as the “red god” and as “the howler.” The god and planet Mars was known by the ancients as the red god.

In Scandinavia, the major god, Odin, had clothing, shield symbols and runes of red color. A hero Viking’s death became celebrated on the calendar as a “red-letter day,” and thus we have this phrase in common use today.

Robin was the god of witches in the forest and when human sacrifices were made, they were dedicated to Robin redbreast, or the slain Cock Robin.

Updated to more recent times, we find that in her occult book, A Treatise On The Seven Rays, Lucis Trust director Alice Bailey taught the occult importance of colors. “The three major rays,” she said, “are red, blue, and yellow.” The color red, Bailey explained, has to do with “Will, or Power. (19)

In The Symbolism of Color, Faber Birren points out the primacy of the color red. He notes: (20)

  • In ancient Egyptian religion, the god Shu was red, and red animals symbolized Seth.
  • The red poppy was sacred to Ceres, the goddess of the harvest.
  • The face of the wine-god Dionysus was sometimes painted red.

In my researches of occult traditions, the color red is always the color of fire and blood, of evil and destruction, and of immorality. Even the Devil is sometimes conceived of as a red beast.

And isn’t that what Communism has proven to be—A red beast? Even a Red Dragon?

  1. The red five pointed star, red shield, which St Stephen mentions in Acts as the Star of Rempham and the tabernacle of Moloch. Denis Fahey traces this as being the star of saturn/satan, I believe in a footnote in the modern world book. The 5 pointed star would be the exoteric action oriented and the 6 pointed hexagram would be the kabbalistic esoteric action. If you notice a lot of police etc badges have been either one or the other of these in many cases, well we use the word judicial, I’m assuming derived from world judah and its book of judges. St Augustine translates judah as “to confess” which would be like to the Sacrament of Penance and confession. Judaeo-masons are the last to confess to anything, they are frauds. Another example would be the 5 pointed star with one of the points being elongated in the down position which would be a reference to Lucifer/Satans fall. Mormon Temples have these in places and you’ll see them in corporate logos etc

    —Yeah for sure the judaeo-masons always try to project themselves as the gods or their god-state working. Just look at some of the names like NOAA, with a dove, real subtle lol It’s kinda weird that the prince of the Jews in old times was called the Nasi, how similar that is to Nazi, and ashkenazi. But for sure the Hammer and sickle have double meanings. Sickle would tie in with population control mass murder and the “harvest” in the context of satanism, it’s surely mentioned in the Bible in another context so they use it for projection purposes. Scary how communism killed 200+ million people in the 20th century and the same people at the top want even more of that. Hammer was also one that I’ve read the swastika is a form of thors whirling hammer in Scandinavian context, I think the NKVD had some uniforms with a swastika as well pre-nazis but it was used in all sorts of places too. There’s some information about Nelson Mandela, who wrote a manuscript about how to be a good communist which is typical leninist garbage and after his death was confirmed to be a secret member of the communist movement, look on IA. MLK was trained at a communist front school and he was fully supported by communists. I’ve read that the Rosa Parks bus drama was a completely staged communist fairytale. On and on with the lies it’s stifling really.

  2. “South African communist Nelson Mandel in commie first salute in front of hammer and sickle”

    FYI – the “white” man with glasses on the side og Mandela is the lithuanian jew Joe Slovo

  3. ‘According to noted historian Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, sixty-six million people perished in the Soviet gulag concentration camps and in the liquidation of the farmers and small businessmen.’
    That number is obviously linked to the same 666 symbolism used in the 6 million figure of the Holocaust and the 109/110 (1-666 added together=222,111) figure of alleged expulsions of Jewry, so the number can safely be rejected. Any time an alleged genocide has 6 in the victim statistic the statistic is very probably false.
