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


It has been almost two months since I have reviewed a book on this blog. As such, 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.


Author: Joe Putnam

I am a Christian (Reformed/Sovereign Grace Baptist type), white American of Western European bloodline, advocate of an agrarian social order, Kinist, White Nationalist, admirer of America’s Founding Fathers and the Boys in Gray, homesteader, indie published author, and amateur historian. I have indie published several books, all of which are available from Amazon. I am a life long resident of rural Orange County, IN –in the part of the Upper South that many would term Greater Appalachia or the Dixie Frontier. In addition to my own blog, I am a contributor to the multi-author blog Identity Dixie. I am active in promotion of the Alt-South movement. In addition to my blog writings, I am currently gearing up for (at least) two more book projects –one theological and one historical. The theological one will cover the three interpretational views of Daniel’s 70th Week. I hope to have this book in print in late summer 2017. (Hint: I am, not a Dispensational Futurist). The historical book will be a biography of George Rogers Clark (1752-1818). Clark was a noted Virginia militia officer who’s campaigns, including his successful siege of Vincennes, basically took the Old Northwest from Britain during the American Revolution. Clark spent the rest of his life around the river that separates Clarksville, IN from Louisville, Kentucky. I hope to have my Clark bio in print in early 2018.

  1. July 27, 2017 update.
    On July 19th, I republished a very slightly edited version of this piece on the Alt-South website Identity Dixie. The next day, Silas from ID re-posted this piece on the popular Alt-Right site The Right Stuff. At this point, that is pretty much the height of my essays popularity.
