The Fake Voltaire Quote Again — This Time from Eric Margolis

by John I. Johnson

YOU CAN’T drive a stake through this one! It just rises again — and again. Half-Jewish Israel critic and former Toronto Sun columnist Eric S. Margolis recently wrote on LewRockwell.com:

“Tell me who you cannot criticize and I will tell you who is your master”. (Attributed to Voltaire.) Saying anything negative about Israel has long been the third rail of US politics and media. Israel is our nation’s most sacred cow. Any questioning of its behavior brings furious charges of anti-Semitism and professional oblivion. . . . Ilhan is not anti-Semitic. I grew up in New York and New England where vicious anti-Semitism abounded. I know real anti-Semitism when I see it.

Margolis sometimes says true things that White racial-nationalists want to hear about Zionist elites and their lies. He’s likely to know who really said the (slightly altered) “Voltaire quote” above (Kevin Alfred Strom, in case you didn’t know) — even though he (sneakily?) says “attributed.”

If he knows, as it seems he might from having read it somewhere, he is being dishonest in that peculiarly Jewish way.

Here’s what Wikipedia says about him:

Eric S. Margolis (born 1942 or 1943) is an American-born journalist and writer. For 27 years, ending in 2010, he was a contributing editor to the Toronto Sun chain of newspapers, writing mainly about the Middle East, South Asia and Islam. A multinational, he holds residences in New York, Paris, Toronto and Banff, Alberta, Canada. Margolis inherited Canadian vitamin manufacturer Jamieson Laboratories from his father in 1989 and owned it until 2014, when he sold it to a US private equity firm. Margolis was born in New York City in 1943 to Henry M. Margolis and Nexhmie Zaimi, an American-Albanian [an Albanian-born Muslim who worked for the OSS — JIJ]. His father was a New York businessman, restaurant owner, theatrical producer and investor, while his mother was a journalist and author.

Margolis is another wealthy, ultra-privileged Jew who decries the “vicious anti-Semitism” that “abounded” in White America when he grew up! Can one have any faith in a man who lies and defames so shamelessly and egregiously?

John I. Johnson, Something I’m sure you’ll have noticed regarding the Jewish narrative on anti-Semitism is that it’s always “rising” or that there’s a “new anti-Semitism” around. These tropes seem to be as much a part of the Jewish wailing about “persecution” and “bigotry” as the use of the word “virulent” to characterize anti-Semitism, or references to “conspiracy theories” and the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion whenever some goy says something true and unflattering about the Jews — what they call an “anti-Semitic canard.” Philo-Semitic canards resemble porcelain ducks on a wall: they fly together, yet are perfectly static. (The French word for duck is canard.) Here’s a genuine Voltaire quotation that deserves to have greater circulation than it does now: “They [the Jews] are, all of them,… Read more »

Jews use words in bizarre ways. They manipulate people’s minds. They also routinely make outrageously absurd, racially defamatory statements of alleged facts that even a dolt should know are false and stupid. But Whites are too busy worshipping God’s chosen to even stop and think. I’m disgusted that an ultra-privileged Jew like Margolis claims he grew up “in New York and New England where vicious anti-Semitism abounded.” When violent JDL domestic terrorist Irv Rubin died, Establishment obituaries in newspapers and online claimed he spent his boyhood in a Canada replete with “No Dogs or Jews Allowed” signs. They all repeated this calumny. Virtually every wealthy, privileged Jew I’ve ever read about claims, or his hagiographers claim, that he was routinely beat up by White kids (or “Christians,” their common euphemism… Read more »

I think it has long been said of the Jews that “they think in Yiddish, and speak in English” — or whatever other language they’ve appropriated to exploit the natives. The Jews think in a crooked, sinister manner — even their script goes from right to left — and they speak to conceal rather than express what they think. I don’t have a physical copy of William Grimstad’s Antizion, but I think I have a file of its text somewhere on my computer, and it used to be easy to find the text online. It’s relatively easy to find anti-Semitic quotes of historical personalities like Voltaire online, as the Jews like to complain about such things, and such quotes are prominent exhibits in the posthumous show trials of such persons… Read more »

“Voltaire’s anti-Semitism was more than a minor detail of his thinking and writing, was quite radical, and has been addressed at length by several writers.” The reason I express reservation about Voltaire is that he is in fundamental ways a paradigmatic Leftist, almost the equivalent of a Jew in terms of the social harm they intentionally cause. Massive social devolution since Voltaire’s day disguises this fact; it’s harder to pick up now on how extreme (in a bad way) he really was. He wasn’t honest either, another Left-wing trait. I am referring to intentional, hardcore Leftism, not “accidental” Leftism. I was an accidental Leftist myself much of my life. Voltaire’s contempt for Jews, refreshing today, may have been a side effect of his loathing for Christianity rather than genuine animosity… Read more »

Your comment on Voltaire reminds me that I should look at how French anti-Semites in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries addressed race, religion, and the scriptures of Judaism and Christianity, an issue addressed by George L. Mosse and Marc Crapez. As with German anti-Semitism in that period, some anti-Semites had a proto-racialist or racialist orientation, and were sometimes radically anti-Christian, while others had a religious orientation, and defended traditional Christianity or advocated a reformed Christianity. The former and the latter inevitably dealt with the Old Testament in very different ways. It seems that racial and religious anti-Semitism were mutually exclusive for some anti-Semites, especially the more doctrinaire and sectarian among them (fierce atheists and fervent Catholics could hardly be expected to see eye to eye), while some anti-Semites took a… Read more »

Are you sure Mr. Margolis is Jewish, and do you have a source for this?

Also, do you have a source for the claim that Mr. Margolis has decried “vicious anti-Semitism” that “abounded” in White America?

My impression of the guy is a bit different than yours, but I’m willing of course to alter my opinion if the facts dictate it.

He takes a position that (at present) is different from Jewry’s official position on Israel. There is a big split among Jews on that subject. He has called himself an “Eisenhower Republican.” As I mentioned, he is half-Jewish. His mother was an Albanian Muslim who worked for the OSS. (See her Wikipedia entry.) His wealthy father is identified as an “American Jew” at the bottom of his own (Henry Margolis’) Wikipedia page. Margolis is a Jewish surname. The father’s profile is echt Jewish: born on NYC’s Lower East Side, educated at CCNY and NYU Law School, investor in NYC and NJ hotels and real estate, Broadway theatrical producer, chairman of Elgin Watch Co. and another company, and owner of Canada’s Jamieson Laboratories, which Eric inherited. Eric’s statement: “Ilhan is not… Read more »

Eric Margolis recently commented on Jeffrey Epstein. He visited Epstein’s residences in both Manhattan and Palm Beach. https://ericmargolis.com/2019/07/the-honey-trap-on-e-71st/ Of his visit to Epstein’s Manhattan home, he says, “Soon after I walked into the entrance of Epstein’s mansion on E 71st Street, said to be the city’s largest private home, a butler asked me, ‘would you like an intimate massage, sir, by a pretty young girl?’ This offer seemed so out of place and weird to me that I swiftly declined. “More important than indelicacy, as an old observer of intelligence affairs, to me this offer reeked of ye old honey trap, a tactic to ensnare and blackmail people that was old when Babylon was young. A discreet room with massage table, lubricants and, no doubt, cameras stood ready off the… Read more »
