Antisemitism (also spelled "Anti-Semitism") is a term and contemporary epithet which has been used in a variety of contexts by different people and organisations, though it was originally invented in 1860 by a liberal Jew named Moritz Steinschneider, the son of a Talmudist born in Moravia. Words like Nazi, antisemite and conspiracy theory were all created and/or used by international Jewry as a means of thought control. When Jews speak of Antisemitism, they usually include the expression "Oy vey!" in there at least once, preferably multiple times.

In its initial coining, it was applied in a criticism of Ernest Renan's contrast of Semites and Indo-Europeans, though at this stage was in a wider more general context than just opposition to Jewishness. It was the socialist Wilhelm Marr who popularised the term in the 1870s with his League of Antisemites, applying it to himself in a positive sense primarily in his attacks on Jewish finance, but also in regard to their non-assimilationism in wider society.
The earliest self-identifying "antisemites" or those figures whom the term was applied to, were generally non-Marxian socialists who came to regard Jewishness and its values system, as the most anti-social form of the unrestrained bourgeoisie following the Industrial Revolution. This had coincided with the ascent of various monopolistic Jewish financial dynasties in Europe and soon North America following their "emancipation". For a time, the phrase was adopted by certain integral nationalists, especially in France such as Action Française. The phrase had its critics from the start and was regarded as inaccurate by people such as Eugen Dühring and largely fell out of use as a self-identifying term by the 1920s.
"Anti-anti-Semitism" has led to mass murder on an industrial scale; following the Jewish coup d'etat in Russia in 1917 for instance, so-called "antisemitism" was a "crime" punishable by death, often by shooting in the back of the head. Today the thought police continue their war against people who criticize the legion of Jewish crimes against humanity by throwing "antisemites" into modern gulags (ie - prisons) in many parts of Europe or bring them to ruin financially. While in other parts of the world, particularly the United States, social ostracism is enforced. Because Jews believe they are a race "chosen" by God above the rest of humanity, they believe they can commit atrocities with impunity and the mere "goyim" have no business asking them to limit or take account of their grotesque behavior. You can criticize any group in the world; Finns, Chinese, Ethiopians, Eskimos, etc as much as you like; but you are not allowed to have a different opinion about the "Master Race of Holy People", that is beyond the pale.
The term Semitic itself, was coined in 1781 by August Ludwig von Schlözer, a German liberal historian from Württemberg. His father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all been Lutheran clergymen and he himself was trained in Protestant theology. Thus when it came to categorizing the language family, primarily spoken in the Middle East, von Schlözer coined the term in reference to groups held to descend from Shem first son of Noah, in the Book of Genesis. This included the Akkadians, Canaanites, Phoenicians, Hebrews, Arabs and Ethiopian Semites. He first proposed this in Johann Gottfried Eichhorn's Repertorium, published at Leipzig. Eichhorn would popularize it in other works.
Renan and von Treitschke against the "semites"
The original coining of the phrase was by Moritz Steinschneider in the periodical Hamaskir. Hebräische Bibliographie, Blätter für neuere und ältere Literatur des Judentums published in Berlin in 1860. The article criticised Ernest Renan for alleged "antisemitic prejudices" in the racial theories he put forward in his book Histoire générale et système comparé des langues sémitiques, published in 1855. Despite the fact that Steinschneider was a Jew, neither his critique or Renan's theory refered to Jews as the exclusive representative of "semites". Renan used the term in a more general linguistic application. In the article Steinschneider mostly focuses on the opinions of another Jew, Heymann Steinthal on Renan.
Renan posited that the Indo-European and Semitic races had created superior civilizations to the African and Amerindian races, but since the coming of Christianity, the Indo-Europeans had entirely eclipsed the Semites. He contrasted the contemporary creative ability, discipline and political organisation of Indo-Europeans with what he regarded as the sensuous, parasitic and unimaginative nature of the Semites. Initially attracted to scholasticism, Renan had grown closer to liberal philosophy, freemasonry and scientism. His researches into Semitic philology had seen him awarded the Prix Volney in 1847, by the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres, an academy of the Institut de France.
The application of the term Semitic as a near synonym for Jewishness, rather than the much more broad usage refering to various different peoples by Renan, has been attributed to Heinrich Gotthard von Treitschke, a Bismarckian author who had been a member of the National Liberal Party. From 1878 he became a critic of Jews who he felt were an unassimilated hostile group, monopolizing the bourgeois section of the society. He also criticized the invasion of thousands of Jews into Germany from Congress Poland. He is sometimes misquoted as having coined the popular phrase "the Jews are our misfortune!".
While some opportunistic Jews have retroactively attempted to secure for themselves a monopoly on victimhood in relation to von Treitschke's polemics, he also attacked almost every single definable group or political opinion outside of the paradigm of Prussian chauvinism. For instance like many liberal nationalists he supported Prussian freemasonry's Kulturkampf against German Catholics, attacked the royal houses of both his native Kingdom of Saxony and the former Kingdom of Hanover—whose pretenders were from the same dynasty as the monarchs of the British Empire—as well as lauding what he framed as the "pitiless racial struggle" against Lithuanians, Poles and Old Prussians.
Marr and Drumont, self-styled "antisemitic" movement
Wilhelm Marr founded the League of Antisemites in Germany on 19 October 1879. The world was suffering an economic crisis known as the Long Depression at the time, yet the Jews appeared to be gaining a monopoly over the nation's financial life as an alien elite. Some of the views held by Marr were inline with von Treitschke, particularly on the definition of "semitic" and promoting assimilationism, but also from more atheistic radicals such as Bruno Bauer. Despite his public activism regarding the Jewish Question, Marr had a highly suspect private life. He married three different Jewesses; Bertha Callenbach, Helene Behrend and Jenny Kornick. Some even claim that Marr himself was of Jewish ancestry.
The term would later be applied to another prominent figure of the era by Theodore Herzl, the socialist philosopher Eugen Dühring, who attacked Jewish finance in the 1890s. However the term was rejected by Dühring, who recognised the problem of the phrase encompassing non-Jewish semitic peoples of the Near East, who he did not identify with the same anti-social behaviour. Similarly the term has been applied to most of the early revolutionary opponents of Marxism, for instance Pierre-Joseph Proudhon in France and then Mikhail Bakunin in Russia. Even the dissident Marxist, Henry Hyndman of the Social Democratic Federation in the United Kingdom for daring to mention the name "Rothschild". Some Zionist Jews even claim that On the Jewish Question by Karl Marx, who was himself a Jew, is "antisemitic".
A publication known as L'Antisemitique in France existed in 1883 and those who ran it attempted to build an international with likeminded people in Germany and Hungary, though this came to nothing. However, a few years later the Antisemitic League of France, founded in 1889 and led by Edouard Drumont would prove more successful. Drumont was a journalist who wrote for La Libre Parole and in 1886 had authored a popular book titled La France Juive. Drumont regarded Jewry as the principle force responsible for the degeneration of the Third Republic. He criticised the Jewish role in the Panama scandals and became involved in the Dreyfus affair. His personal views represented an unusual mixture of anarchism and counter-revolution, with a strong mystical bent.
|“||This whole Jewish world, comprising a single exploiting sect, a kind of blood sucking people, a kind of organic destructive collective parasite, going beyond not only the frontiers of states, but of political opinion, this world is now, at least for the most part, at the disposal of Marx on the one hand, and of Rothschild on the other. This may seem strange. What can there be in common between socialism and a leading bank? The point is that authoritarian socialism, Marxist communism, demands a strong centralization of the state. And where there is centralization of the state, there must necessarily be a central bank, and where such a bank exists, the parasitic Jewish nation, speculating with the Labour of the people, will be found.||”|

Between Bolshevism and the Second World War
Marxism became the primary vehicle through which the Jewish financio-industrial bourgeoisie would seek to redirect or tame the Judeo-critical nature of the socialist movement. Victor Adler, the Jew who initiated Marxism in Austria notably claimed that, "antisemitism is the socialism of the blockheads". Marx himself made disparaging remarks about German factory workers who he had ecountered as an outsider. The Marxists had largely usurped control over the socialist movement internationally with the initiation of the Second International. Around this time, a document known as the Protocols of the Elders of Zion emerged in Franco-Russian circles. A metapolitical Rosetta Stone of sorts, it decoded contemporary political agitation in relation to the Jewish Question. Some claim it was created by the Okhrana, in any case it became the most high profile document called "antisemitic" by Jews.
During and immediately after World War I, events came to a head regarding the Jewish Question. The war had been initiated by excitable elements surrounding Kaiser Wilhelm II, who later revealed he had been "far too indulgent" to Jewish financiers. After the fall of Russia, Zionist Jews switched sides helping to bring the United States into the conflict, as a means of extracting the Balfour Declaration, an action which ultimately led to the Treaty of Versailles. At the same time, Jewish-led communists were overthrowing governments in Russia under Lenin✡ and Trotsky✡, in Hungary under Kun, in Germany under Toller and Luxemburg. Because of its revanchist and bloody nature—at least 13 million in Russia died under Lenin and Trotsky, while millions of others were ensalved in labour camps—many came to regard Bolshevism as ultimately a Jewish proxy war against Europeans on a racial basis and Christians on a religious basis.
While members of the Jewish industrial and financial bourgeoisie of New York City such as Jacob Schiff✡ and Max Warburg, as well as later Armand Hammer—who helped to rebuild industry in the Soviet Union—were involved in backing the Bolshevists against the Russians, the blood-letting shocked many. Among their opponents were high profile figures such as industrialist Henry Ford, a newspaper he owned, The Dearborn Independent, criticised the Jewish role. He was attacked in a propaganda campaign by the ADL of B'nai B'rith which included even Woodrow Wilson. Around this time the term "antisemitism", became exclusively a newspeak epithet, even before World War II. In European lands, many revolutionary groups responded to the NKVD threat with a return to a more gentile socialism. Some of these were concerned with the Jewish Question out of political necessity, such as the NSDAP. The Third Reich is perhaps the most notable government to be called "antisemitic" by Jews, though they themselves largely rejected the term, partly due to a geopolitical alliance with Arabs.
|“||The Jews are an inharmonious racial mixture that should be clearly differentiated from the Near Eastern and Eastern nations, including the peoples of the Near East who speak a Semitic language. Accordingly, the expression, "antisemitism", which has been used in Europe for decades, is incorrect, since that movement in exclusively directed against the Jews, a corrosive influence on nations, but not against the other peoples with a Semitic language, who have also had an anti-Jewish orientation since olden times.||”|

Jews and Judeophiles often attempt to pathologize criticism of and resistance to Jewish supremacism as "antisemitism". Rather than analyzing the most objectionable aspects of Jewish group activity and pin-pointing aspects which arouse the ire of the host population: this is the standard Jewish response to the Jewish Question. The gentile victim fighting back by attempting to criticise a crime or defend himself from the attack against his interests (religious, racial, political, economic, family, national, cultural, personal, etc) is portrayed as an irrational monster, indoctrinated into a systematic body of propaganda to hate the innocent Jews. Any suggestion of Jewish involvement in a crime is portrayed as a "conspiracy theory" or an "antisemitic canard" invented in the "fraudulent" Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
|“||An "antisemite" in actual usage, is less often a man who hates Jews than a man certain Jews hate. The word expresses the emotional explosion that occurs in people who simply can't bear critical discourse about a sacred topic, and who experience criticism as profanation and blasphemy. The term "antisemitism" doesn't stand for any intelligible concept. It belongs not to the world of rational discourse, but to the realm of imprecations and maledictions and ritual ostracisms.||”|

Discussing Jewish activity as thought-criminality
Discussing the power of Jews in a gentile society if often attacked as "antisemitism". This is because the Jews form a dominant minority since the early modern period and mass consciousness of the power they hold is dangerous to the continuation of it and may at the very least incur unwanted responsibilities for how they have abused it (including financial crises, the waging of wars, etc). It is thus verboten to discuss Jewish involvement in fractional reserve banking (Rothschild, Schiff, Warburg, Oppenheimer, etc) or international business. Gentiles may not point out Jewish prominence in the mass media or the Hollywood film industry, especially in the United States and Europe.
Since the 20th century and the ascent of Zionism, with the creation of a Zionist State in Palestine, many lobby groups such as AIPAC have been created by Jews to pressure the governments of ordinary gentile taxpayers into having sending billions in foreign aid, military equipment and even to conduct proxy wars for the Israelis in the Middle East. This has led to the claims of a Zionist Occupied Government in many Western countries especially. Criticism of this, as well as Jewish racial-supremacist treatment of the Palestinians and the actions of the Israeli state is often called "antisemitism".
|“||Are we going to let our world be destroyed so as not to offend a tiny number of people who accuse us of antisemitism to cover up the crimes they are committing against us?||”|
|— Count Cherep-Spirodovich paraphrased by John Kaminski, The Hidden Hand, 1925.|
As an example, a 24-year-old Turkish man living in Germany shouted, "Death to Zionists." On February 2015, a German judge Gauri Sastry ruled that antisemitism was legally the same as Anti-Zionism in Germany.
Gentiles may not investigate Talmudic religion
Any honest investigation into the religion of the Talmudic Jews by a gentile is strictly forbidden. Exposing the myth that Jews constitute a master race of holy people "chosen" by God above the rest of humanity is outlandish "antisemitism". Revealing anti-gentile racial chauvinism and other objectionable aspects from tractates of the Talmud often leads to a slander campaign against the person in the media. Some of the best known forbidden books in this area have included The Talmud Unmasked by Justinas Pranaitis, The Traditions of the Jews by Johann Andreas Eisenmenger and Judaism's Strange Gods by Michael A. Hoffman II.
Discussing the involvement of the Pharisees in the murder of Jesus Christ is often described by Jewish organisations such as the ADL of B'nai B'rith as "classic antisemitism" and "Christian antisemitism", the Romans instead must be blamed. This is despite the fact that the involvement of Pharisaic Jews in the deicide is clearly and specifically mentioned in the New Testament. It is also admitted in the Talmud, however the modern Jewish establishment play a coy game with this despite recent books such as Jesus in the Talmud by Peter Schäfer✡. The most forbidden of all areas to investigate pertaining to Jewish-Christian relations is the claims of Jewish ritual murder of Christian children, again in spite of candid books such as Blood Passover by Ariel Toaff✡, son of the Chief Rabbi of Rome.
Semitics and semantics, Khazars vs Palestinians
The phrase itself is problematic, because most of the people who label themselves as "Jews" today, may not even be descended from the populations which have been categorised as semitic. While the Sephardim may have some ancestry from these groups, including from early medieval Arab converts to Talmudism, the Ashkenazism are a more controversial case. Dissidents from amongst this group, such as Arthur Koestler in his book The Thirteen Tribe and Benjamin H. Freedman in Facts are Facts, have put forward the position that the Ashkenazis are actually decended from the Khazars; a Turko-Mongol group who converted to Talmudism. While the Sephardim have also been associated with anti-social acts, it is the Ashkenazi-Khazars whom the early self-styled "antisemites" were in direct conflict with.
Antisemitism as a Shield
The Federal Reserve, International banking, and Israel use their Jewishness as a shield of protection. They do all kinds of villainous deeds and if anyone criticizes them, then they instantly marginalize the complainer saying they oppose them for being Jews rather than their actions.
Everyone and everything is antisemitic
Depending on the circumstances, Jews and their fellow travellers have tried cast the net for the definition of "antisemitism" so wide that it has even included things like anti-smoking, serving homeless people soup oppposing the ritual torture of animals, and all elevators that aren't specially engineered to automatically go up-and-down stopping at every floor automatically on the Sabbath. Even requesting that Jews who are standing on land clearly marked with "no tresspassing" signs move on has been called "anti-semitic". Some Jewish supremacists are so paranoid and taught to see all gentiles as the enemy (amalek) in their hyper-ethnocentric Talmudic narrative, that even loyal Jewish lackeys and Judeophiles cannot escape the phrase; they are according to Daniel Goldhagen, "antisemites in sheep's clothing". You're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't; everything on earth, apart from the Master Race of Holy People themselves is antisemitic (and even some card-carrying tribesmen have been described as self-hating Jews for not being fanatical enough).
Even talk of a "jewish lobby" is now considered "antisemitic".
