THE JEW IN POLITICS.
“If a Christian and an Israelite come before you to decide any difference whatsoever, see that the Israelite wins the case.. .. If yon cannot openly do so, have the Israelite win the case in any way, — if necessary, through craft and deceit.” — THE TALMUD.
In American politics, and especially in the politics of New-York City, the so-called “American” Jew has come of late years to cut a very prominent figure. The State legislature, the New York judiciary, and the city and county offices are well studded with Jews, most of them of the German or Polish variety. Many of these Hebraic office-holders have become what is known as “baptized” Jews: that is, they are alleged to have adopted the Christian religion, and to have been baptized in the Christian faith.
By skilfully twisting and changing and Anglicising their names, they are often not known as Hebrews among the general public. This, for instance, is the case with a well-known ex-commissioner of charities and corrections, whose first name is usually written plain “Jake;” and it is also the case with an equally well known New York theatrical manager, whose first name is identical with that of a late ruler of Abyssinia, and whose last name suggests something verdant and mossy, which, by the way, the aforesaid manager by no means is.
But however much the Jew may conceal his true identity, however much he may Anglicise his name, however much he may be drenched in the baptismal font, rely upon it, the Jew nature has remained unchanged; the detestation of and desire to overreach the “Goy” which simmers in the Semitic blood will not have grown one whit the less pronounced and ardent; in a word, he remains the Jew “for a’ that.”
The Jew vote has come to be recognized as a very important factor in practical politics. It is a vote which is especially telling, weighty, and formidable, from the fact that it is invariably cast solid, that is, it is voted in its full strength, for any candidate of Jewish blood, or who represents Jewish interests. No motives of partisanship can divert the vote of the Jew voter from the Jew candidate; his vote is cast for the candidate of his race, regardless of what party he may belong to and what ticket they may be on; the Jewish vote is the most clannish in existence. Tammany Hall fully recognizes this fact, and that is the reason why in the past few years no Tammany ticket has been put forward without having the names of two or more Jew candidates upon it. Was this done because of the prominence and abilities of these candidates, and the ardent affection entertained by Tammany Hall for the Jew?
It was done to catch this solid Jew vote, to strengthen thereby the general ticket.
One of the features of strength in the Jew vote is, that, strange as it may seem at first blush, it is never bought or sold.
Because, as every practical politician well knows, the Jew voter would simply pocket the proffered bribe, and then, as he gleefully fingered the purchase-money in his pocket, would cast his ballot for the candidates of his race. No; the practical politician never attempts to buy up the Jew vote: he knows a little too much for that!
The people of this country had a striking example, not long ago, of the light in which Semitic blood is regarded at foreign courts, when the United States attempted to accredit an ambassador with a Jewish wife and Jewish leanings first to Italy and later to Austria. Both of these countries energetically demanded the withdrawal of the obnoxious minister proposed.
Yet this rebuff seems to have had but little effect in awakening thought among the Americans; for, as before stated, the Jew nose protrudes high and strong from all branches of our official life. Our minister at the most important court in Eastern Europe is a Jew, who, it is widely rumored, obtained his high office by virtue of large pecuniary advances made to prominent political personages.
The only Jew who was ever governor of the proud little State of South Carolina turned out an arrant knave, and has in recent year’s been more than once behind the prison-bars. His Hebrew physiognomy today adorns the Rogues’ Gallery in Inspector Byrnes’s office. It looks very much in place.
There are several Jews in Congress, and the New York State Legislature is thick with them. Most of them sprang from the humblest origin, and many of them are, to put it mildly, of the very shadiest of shady antecedents.
There is one Jew in New York today who is conspicuous by his arrogant manners and haughty bearing, who has successively held the offices of judge of a district court, State senator, and dock commissioner. He is now a school-trustee. He has not been out of a public office of some kind in the last fourteen years.
He is a baptized Jew, — that is, he claims he is a Christian. Don’t believe him!.
The present comptroller of the city of New York is a Hebrew.
As for the bench of New-York City, it is full of Jews that it would be difficult to throw a stone among the judiciary without hitting a descendant of Israel. One of them, a squat, hooked-nosed, suspicious-eyed person, was, until recently, on the bench of the city court. He has been succeeded by another Jew, — a man notorious for his abandoned amours and insatiable lechery.
Another Jew, who’ in early life peddled fish and fruit, graces for a fourteen-years’ term of office the bench of the superior court.
Another, who first saw the light of day in a noisome tenement-house in First Avenue, presides over one of the most important judicial districts in the city. One of his most salient characteristics is his vanity, which renders him a veritable terror to reporters, whom he runs after, begging them to make mention of every little petty case with which he is connected, his object being to bring his name before the public.
Yet two other judicial districts are presided over by Jew judges, and still the full list of Hebrew magistrates is not complete. But to enumerate further would become wearisome.
Two of the members of the sub-way commission are Jews, and of Hebrew school-trustees there is a goodly throng. Most of them are so-called “baptized” Jews, and disguise themselves as Christians. Look out for them!
On the police justice’s bench there sat, until comparatively recently, a Jew, who, if he had met with his deserts, would have been impeached, and held up to ineffable infamy. His lechery, which he did not even lay aside when on the bench, was a subject of public scandal. Whenever a good-looking female complainant or prisoner appeared before him, he would invariably descend from the bench, lead her into the magistrate’s private room, and hold an interview with her behind bolted doors. Whenever an abandoned woman was arraigned before him, he would impose a fine, which fine would be duly remitted after an interview behind locked doors in “the judge’s” private room. The scandal grew to, be so flagrant that the court officers and police reporters would wink at one another, and watch with suggestive smirks, as the Jew judge descended from the bench, and disappeared in his private room behind a petticoat. There would be another grin as the bolt was sharply shut to, and smiles broader than ever when finally the judge, a quarter of an hour later, would, with flushed cheeks and dilated nostrils, emerge from his private retreat.
More than once the janitress of the Essex Market Police Court caught this Hebrew adjudicator in positions more than compromising. All these things were done openly, blatantly, with Jew brazenness and audacity, in open court.
Finally the scandal smelled so to heaven that the commissioners of charities and corrections, who have charge of the furniture and fixtures of the police courts and police justices’ rooms, removed the lounge from this particular magistrate’s private apartment. Whenever he passed, according to the system of rotation followed by the police justices, to a new court, the operation of removing the lounge was resorted to. But this judicial libertine was no stickler at trifles; and the mere removal of this convenient article of furniture had little, if any, effect in checking the tete-a-tetes in which he was wont to indulge. These facts can readily be verified. Any police-court officer, any police-court reporter of three years’ standing, will be in a position to substantiate them.
Intrenched in the coroner’s office is a little Jew, who cuts such a grotesque figure, and who possesses so many qualities pre-eminently typical of his race, that he deserves more than passing mention. This little Jew, in his eagerness to capture personal popularity and political votes, is all things unto all men. Not a German public banquet or gathering occurs, upon which he does not inflict his presence. At the Liederkranz or the Arion, he will sing German songs; and, loading himself to bursting with good cheer at others’ expense, he will obtrude his ill-shapen Hebrew paunch in Christian faces.
At every Yolks-Fest, he is present with a ready-made speech. When the French societies annually celebrate the fall of the Bastille, he will repair to Lion Park wearing the tricolor in his hat, and, with well simulated Gallic air, will drink to the prosperity of La Patrie. At the annual Swiss festival, he is ever on hand; and when the Bavarians join together and make merry, the most boisterous Bavarian of them all is the Hebrew coroner. On St. Patrick’s Day he joins in the procession of the sons of Hibernia, wearing a green tie and green gloves. An Irish Jew! Who ever heard of such a thing!
All this feasting and picnicking and parading, the Jew coroner takes good care shall not cost him one cent. In fact, penuriousness is one of his most salient Jewish characteristics. To such an extent does he carry this penuriousness, that he actually carries off the stationery of the coroner’s office to his home, so as to be supplied with free writing-material. He has quite an extensive correspondence, and this correspondence costs him nothing.
But, how about the postage?
Bless you! he takes good care not to layout any shekels for that. After writing his numerous letters at his home, on the free official stationery, he carefully carries the letters back to the coroner’s office, where they can be postage-stamped, free of expense to him, with the office stamps. What do you think of that? It is a typical Jew trick!
And these are a few samples of the Jew politicians whom the easy-going and indifferent American people allow to be elected to their public offices, enabling Jew judges to lay down the law for Gentile litigants; permitting Jew officials to handle Christian moneys; electing Jew legislators to frame the Christians’ laws; selecting Jew trustees to have the directing of Christian schools!
In view of past history, and the growing prominence of the Jew in official life, is it not time that the American people gave some serious thought and attention to the Jew in politics?
THE JEW IN JOURNALISM.
“Physical degradation follows closely upon moral degradation. This is strongly remarked among the Jews, who, of all races of men, are the most depraved.” — LAVATER.
Just forty-one years ago, on the outskirts of a little town in Austrian Hungary, where the tribes of Israel are gathered thick, was born, of Jewish parents, a boy who was destined to play a prominent part in the public life of this country. The boy grew to be tall, lanky. and raw-boned, with stooping shoulders, large straggling feet, and the aggressive proboscis peculiar to his race. Judging from the particular curvature of his nasal bone, he belonged to the tribe of Ephraim. His head was covered with thick tufts of untidy reddish hair; but inside this untidily covered head there worked a brain ablaze with activity. shrewdness, cunning, and ambition.
Education in Europe is usually an expensive matter; but, fortunately for the young Jew, there was an exceptionally good public school in the neighboring townlet, which could be attended free of expense; and he availed himself of the opportunity thus afforded, with great regularity and highly satisfactory results. He was a quick, alert scholar, but nevertheless was not popular among his schoolmates.
They conferred a number of unpleasant nicknames upon him, one of which is said to have been “Antichrist.”
Of the young Jew’s school-days, an anecdote is related, which may, perhaps, be regarded by some as strikingly typical of events in his after-career. The story runs, that upon one occasion he and a number of companions were playing marbles. There was an unusually fine display of “alleys,” “commoneys,” and other varieties of the little spheres, upon the ground; and the Jew’s lust of possession — that lust of possession congenital to his race — was aroused.
Presently turning upon one of his companions, he, in a loud voice and with great emphasis of gesture, accused him of cheating. The lad, taken by surprise, stammered out a denial of the charge. But the Jew overwhelmed him with abuse; and with much volubility, — from his earliest days he had a fine flow of words, — denounced his crime, proposing that immediate punishment be meted out. The other boys carried away by the young Jew’s fervor, promptly acquiesced; and the alleged culprit was dragged off to a neighboring tree, securely tied, and soundly whipped with knotted pocket-handkerchiefs and pieces of cord.
The punishment over, the boys returned to their marbles, only to find that every one of them had disappeared. So had the Jew. While the punishment which he had invoked was being administered, he had walked off with the coveted spoils.
As the young Jew reached his nineteenth year, he found himself in danger of being compelled to enter the army of his native land, and go through the usual term of military service. There was no tangible gain in that, and he accordingly decided to emigrate to this country. He arrived here in 1865, the closing year of the war. It is doubtful whether the young Hebrew immigrant felt any very profound enthusiasm or interest in the questions or principles at issue in our great internecine struggle; but heavy bounties were being paid at the time, and perhaps this fact was not unremotely connected with his enlisting in the First New-York Cavalry Regiment within a few days after he landed. Thus his first sphere of action upon landing on these shores was, after evading the military service of the land of his birth, to hire out here as a mercenary, to engage in human slaughter in return for a fat bounty and so many dollar’s a month.
It was not the cause of freedom that made the young Jew eager to enter the military service of this country. It was not the flag of the Union that warmed his blood. It was “money” he was after. He coveted the dollar.
Country, in the sense we attach to this word, has no meaning whatever to the Jew. The Jew will fight as readily in Germany for thalers as he will fight in Russia for rubles. The Jew is a member of “the inexorable universality.”
It has been charged that this particular Jew, however, did very little in the way of slaughtering rebels; and it is asserted that he returned no substantial equivalent for the fat bounty upon which his itching palm had so eagerly closed, — that, in plain words, he became a professional bounty-jumper. But this charge has never been fully substantiated, and he should at least be entitled to the Scotch verdict of “Not proven.”
After the close of the war he drifted West, where we find him settled for the winter, grooming horses.
During the following summer he worked on a farm, and next became a stoker on an old Mississippi steamer, and later still was employed in the same capacity on the Belleville ferry-boat.
The wages, however, were small; and when the cholera broke out, and the — to him —comparatively large sum of two dollars per grave was offered for men to dig the last resting-places for those who had died of the epidemic, the Jew sprang eagerly into the work. The mortality was immense, the competition in the dangerous business of grave-digging for cholera victims extremely slack; and, following out the traditions of his race, the Jew reaped — or, more accurately speaking, shovelled in — large returns from the general desolation.
It is not difficult to draw a mental picture of this man bending with his hawk-like face over the graves heaped up with putrescence, working with feverish energy; thinking of nothing, caring for nothing, save the money for which his soul thirsted with an unspeakable intensity; and with wild ambitions and strange lusts of power and possession whirling through the brain pulsating under the tufty reddish hair.
The cholera epidemic over, the Jew worked for a short time as a waiter in a St. Louis restaurant, and next donned the livery of a coachman in a stable standing at this day within pistol-shot of the Southern Hotel in St. Louis. The ambition to rise and to possess was as strong as ever within him. He had a good deal of spare time in his new position; and this spare time he assiduously employed in perfecting himself in the English language, and acquiring general knowledge.
Within a very short time he launched out as an attorney, which vocation he followed only for a few weeks, and then became a reporter on a German paper.
He rapidly made the acquaintance of a number of practical politicians, Anglicised his first name and his surname to the form in which they are so well known to-day, and succeeded, although still an alien, in getting himself elected to the legislature from a district in which he had never paid a tax, and in which he had never even lived. The fraud was, however, discovered, and he was promptly disqualified.
Not in the least abashed, much less discouraged, he resumed his reportorial and political wire-pulling.
He began to make a specialty of “unearthing” jobs, and of exposing all manner of frauds and impositions. He was a great expert in such things, seeming to literally scent out the places where corruption existed. He became an object of fear and dread in certain political quarters; and finally it was deemed a wise and politic measure by certain political personages to effect a deal whereby the Jew was appointed police commissioner of Democratic St. Louis, although he was at the time a pronounced and aggressive Republican.
And now began a regime that will be long remembered in St. Louis. At last, at last, this hungry Jew from the poverty-stricken provinces of Hungary had the opportunity for which his soul so long had hungered. The gambler, the publican, the keeper of the bawdy-house, the prostitute, the policy-shop man, the receiver of stolen goods, all, all were squeezed with a merciless pressure heretofore unknown.
From a hundred and one quarters, gold flowed in an unbroken stream into the lean, outstretched fingers of the Magyar ex-gravedigger.
No form of vice was too small, too petty, to be exempt from attention. Sources that no Gentile political office-holder, no matter how astute, had ever dreamed of “stirring up,” were now ferreted out, and subjected to official pressure.
Had the rule of the Jew police-commissioner lasted much longer, crime and fast life in St. Louis would have died from sheer inanition.
It was the old story over again, of the marbles of his schoolboy days.
* * * * *
“Ye cannot serve God and mammon,” says Holy Writ.
It does not apply to the Jews. We have known many Jews who could serve both at the same time.
After stepping down from the police commissionership enriched, “the Jew” bought out a St. Louis newspaper, and, continuing his exposures of the evil deeds of others, the publication flourished, and the bank account of its proprietor fattened.
Five years ago he came East, and bought the organ which he at present operates with so much noise and so much profit.. .. From the day that he took possession of this organ, fortune seemed to favor him. A great daily became involved in a stupendous fight with the news-dealers; another daily bolted the Democratic Presidential nominee. Thousands of Democrats refused to buy their organ, and the news-dealers substituted the Jew’s organ upon every occasion. Into the opening thus made, the Jew crept, and thence rose upward to the high tide of success.
And now the Jew’s advent began to exercise its blighting influence upon American journalism. Hitherto no daily newspaper in New York, save one, which charged a practically prohibitory rate of $2.50 per line, had sold its news-columns for disguised advertising puffs. Even the small items of reading-matter inserted by advertisers were marked with the warning “adv.” for the protection of the public, lest they by any chance be mistaken by the unsophisticated reader for the statements of the paper itself.
To sell the editorial or news columns of a leading morning, daily, had hitherto been regarded in the great proud world of New-York newspaper-dom, as journalistic harlotry. For a metropolitan daily to offer its editorial or news space for a consideration, was looked upon professionally as like unto a woman offering her body for a price. It was the scarlet sin of journalism, — a great newspaper’s prostitution, its shame.
But under the regime of the Jew journalist, all this journalistic scrupulosity, not to say sense of honor, vanished. Any scheme could be puffed, any enterprise boomed, without investigation, without regard to its merits or even honesty, at a cost of one dollar per line. Hordes of Jew canvassers, underpaid, dirty of beard and long of coat, swarmed through the business thoroughfares soliciting — like touters for a bawdy-house — merchants, speculators, bankers, brokers, mining sharks, and real-estate jobbers, to boom their enterprises in the Jew’s organ at one dollar a line, reduced rates being daily offered for large orders of several columns or more.
Whole pages filled with alluring illustrations were given up to lauding rascally land-colonization schemes; and poor people who believed that what they read was given on the responsibility of a great metropolitan daily, were lured into parting with their money for lands that were in many instances practically as valueless as a stretch of sand in the wastes of Sahara. A corps of special writers was kept employed in the office to weld these paid puffs into such shape as would disguise their real nature, and cause them to read as genuine news reports.
Blow, bluster, and brag; brag, bluster, and blow, — were made to take up a goodly portion of the space formerly allotted to legitimate news, succeeding, unfortunately, only too well with an easily gulled public; and rancorous vituperation and vile abuse replaced the dignified editorial.
It will thus be perceived that metropolitan journalism sickened and deteriorated with the injection of Semitic blood into its veins.
With the acquisition of great wealth and power, the Jew’s characteristic love of display asserted itself. Upon the occasion of a visit to Europe some time ago, this Jew contrived to have the title of Baron — for a consideration, of course — conferred upon himself; an extraordinary title indeed for the proprietor of a democratic organ to seek. He is now making strenuous efforts to figure in American society. He has engaged as one of the principal editors of his organ, a pompous, puffed-up popinjay, who possesses little other qualification save that of having weighty social connections. The most important duty of this person is to secure for his Jew patron an entree into exclusive social circles. So far he has met with no success: furthermore, he is not likely to meet with any.
Lifted to this high pinnacle of material prosperity, it will be interesting to watch what the future career of this brilliantly able, mercilessly crafty, and restlessly ambitious scion of the Semitic race will be.
“THE GREAT AMERICAN JOURNALIST.”
“His gifts are pest.” — GUSTAVE TRIDON.
THE Jew journalist described in the preceding chapter has a younger brother, who, as far as his moderate abilities have permitted, has sought to follow in his brother’s footsteps, and emulate his virtues. His career has been, on a modified scale, very like that of his brother. Like him, he hied himself to this country in his sixteenth year, and, after passing through various vicissitudes, drifted into the service of a German newspaper in St. Louis. He came to New York early in the seventies, and finally succeeded in attaching himself to the reportorial staff of the New York “Herald.”
As a reporter, he was not distinguished for any particular brilliancy; but the Classy impudence or indomitable cheek of his race stood him in good stead, and the notorious brazenness and effrontery of the Jew reporter made him a valuable news-gatherer in cases in which the collecting of facts was materially facilitated by an absence of delicacy.
He finally succeeded, by force of these qualities, in distinguishing himself on the “Herald.” It was in the following manner. Oakey Hall was mayor, and the newspapers were eager to interview him on a subject that at the moment engrossed public attention. Mr. Hall, however, held himself aloof, and resolutely refused to be interviewed. The Jew reporter was assigned — by the “Herald” to the case.
He kept a sharp espionage upon the mayor. The latter was at the time suffering from a severe attack of dysentery, and one fine day “the Jew” succeeded in catching him as he was hurrying through a corridor to a certain secluded recess.
The Jew reporter clung to the mayor, followed him into the place of refuge for which he was making, and actually bolted himself in with him. Decency forbids a description of the scene that ensued. Suffice it to say that Mayor Hall, sore pressed by the disease from which he was suffering, and finding the necessity of privacy at all costs, was compelled to answer certain questions of this Jewish news-scavenger, which put the latter in possession of the material needed for the much-sought-for interview. The publication of the details thus obtained made quite a sensation at the time, and gave the Jew news-scavenger a decided boost on the “Herald.”
Subsequently a clique of editors on a certain paper, for a consideration, entered into a deal to boom a public scheme. A certain Jew reporter was the go between in the negotiations, and into his hands the “boodle” was paid. When the time came for the division of the spoils, the Jew boodle-holder coolly declined to disgorge, calmly inquiring in the classic language of Tweed, “What are you going to do about it?” It was at this juncture that the “Jew” left the “Herald.”.
A little over five years ago he turned up again, and started the sheet that he to-day directs. For some months after the starting of this sheet, before its success was insured, there followed days of terror and nights of horror. Fear that his venture might not succeed haunted the Jew night and day, and such was his terror that it at one time threatened to overturn his reason. He had none of that financial daring that characterizes his elder brother; and more than once during the dark days of the early struggle he would have succumbed and given up the venture, had he not been encouraged and urged to continue by able and daring Gentile assistants. When at last success crowned the enterprise, the Jew ruthlessly rid himself of these assistants to whom he owed all. They knew too much of him in adversity; it was undesirable to have men about him who had seen him weaken and weep; they were eye-sores to the Jew’s pride.
Many humorous stories are narrated of him during the days when he was seeking to establish his paper. He was wont, for instance, to go about loaded down with that variety of circulars known as a “dodgers,” setting forth the merits of his sheet. These circulars he distributed wherever he went. When on an elevated-railway train, he would ride to the terminus of the road, and wait until all the passengers had stood up. He would then pass along the car, depositing a circular on each vacant seat. Passing outside to the platform, he would glare through the windows, and watch how many of the in-coming passengers would take up the circulars he had distributed. A goodly number of people taking the “dodgers” in hand, he would pass on his way rejoicing. It is asserted that when he left the office he could be traced from point to point by the “dodgers” strewn along the track over which he had passed.
Like his brother, he freely sold the news-columns of his paper to all purchasers, and in an unusually short time achieved a financial success.
When the money came rolling in, the Jewish love of display speedily asserted itself. He made a number of ridiculous efforts to get into “society,” the methods pursued by him to this end being characteristically Hebraic and pre-eminently ludicrous. He would write up a flamboyant description, accompanied by a portrait, of a society-woman whose drawing-room he desired to enter, with a view to flattering her vanity and of gaining his end. These publications in his paper, remarkable only for bad taste and inanity, naturally had no further result than that of awakening ridicule and disgust.
Finding it impossible to obtain any social recognition in New York, he went over to Paris, where he took up his residence at the Grand Hotel. French men are grossly and notoriously ignorant of affairs outside their own country; and the Jew passed himself off as “the great American journalist,” the rival of James Gordon Bennett, the publisher whose newspaper had supplanted the “Herald” as the representative paper of this country. Several highly ridiculous articles, inspired, of course, by “the Jew,” appeared in various French publications to this effect.
But laugh as we may at the vanity, the follies, the vulgarities, the social ambitions and silly aspirations, of these Jew journalists, the fact remains that in the last five years the Semite has succeeded in getting a film grasp upon metropolitan newspaper-dom, that fulcrum which is so weighty a factor in moulding public thought and public opinion throughout the land.
In these facts is there not ground for serious concern?
THE JEW LECHER.
“In all matters pertaining to corruption and pollution, In matters that defile moral character, the Jew stands unequalled.”
— THE ORIGINAL MR. JACOBS.
NEXT to his lust for money. the strongest passion in the Jew is his licentiousness. This, like every other vicious trait of which the Jew is possessed, takes a peculiarly prominent and objectionable form.
The average Jew is disgustingly bawdy in his talk, and interlards his conversation with filthy expressions and obscene words. On the verandas at summer-resorts, in hotel corridors, in the lobbies of theatres, on steamboats, on railway-cars, and in public places in general, the Jew indulges in this repulsive peculiarity, to the great annoyance and disgust of respectable Christian women and decency-loving Gentile men. This was one of the habits which made him so objectionable at summer resorts, and has led to his practical exclusion from almost every first-class summer-hotel in the land.
The boldest and most offensive of that class of persons who lounge about the prominent thoroughfares of our principal cities, and are known as “street mashers,” are Israelites. Overdressed, with mincing gait and dandified mien, these Jew “mashers” are daily to be seen strutting up and down the leading streets, ogling, with amazing effrontery, every woman who passes them by. Young girls of tender age are especially marked by these Jew “mashers” as their particular prey. Some years ago, in San Francisco, the attention of the police was directed to a band of Jew “mashers,” who made a point of following up the girls of a certain public school on their way from the classroom to their homes. These Jew scoundrels, wherever they were unable to make a girl’s acquaintance, would follow her up in pairs, talking together in the most disgusting manner, so as to be overheard by the objects of their pursuit. Some of the children’s male relatives, assisted by the police, finally succeeded in very effectually disposing of this band of wretches.
Almost any afternoon, in Kearny Street, San Francisco, knots of Jew “mashers” are to be seen hanging around the corners, and ogling the women who pass. Some of these fellows have not merely lascivious propensities in view, but have their sharp and restless eyes open to any possibilities of blackmail. that may present themselves. Some years ago, a young married woman who had been foolish enough to allow one of these foppishly dressed Jew scoundrels to make her acquaintance, was so mercilessly blackmailed, although her conduct had in no way passed into the bounds of criminality, that the unfortunate woman was driven into an attempt at suicide. The truth then leaked out; and she and her husband never again lived happily together, and eventually drifted apart. Upon one occasion, a young lady, while passing the corner of Park and Kearny Streets, was addressed by one of these Jew Lotharios of the street. Gazing upon the Jew dude with a pitying look, she drew a fifty-cent piece from her pocket, and threw it at his feet, exclaiming,
“You miserable thing! you don’t look as if you were half fed. Go and buy yourself something to eat with that.”
The Jew masher gazed for a moment at the coin as it lay on the sidewalk, and then the instincts of his race conquered him. He stooped, picked up the money, and pocketed it. A quick and efficacious way to get rid of the Jew masher is to throw him a little money. It will engross his attention, and secure a release from his importunities.
In Eddy Street, San Francisco, a Jew dentist established himself some time ago in business. One day, while a lady was under the influence of an anaesthetic in the dental chair, this scoundrel, taking advantage of her helpless condition, committed certain improprieties. The lady regained consciousness more quickly than he anticipated, and he was discovered. She went home, and told the whole story to her husband. The latter, arming himself with a stout rawhide, compelled his wife to accompany him to the dental parlors. Arrived there, he laid the lash lustily over the Jew’s head and shoulders, flogged him unmercifully. The Jew coward made no attempt at defence. He simply writhed and squirmed and screamed, like the whipped cur that he was. Finally, lest his humiliation should not already be sufficiently complete, he fell down on his knees before his assailant, grovelling before him, kissing his feet, and imploring him to desist the castigation. Then, still abjectly kneeling, he confessed his attempted crime in terms of sickening servility, and implored the wife’s forgiveness. What a disgusting spectacle! But let all Jew lechers be treated likewise.
In another street of San Francisco, within a stone’s throw of the famous “Poodle Dog” restaurant, a Jew kept a hair-dressing establishment on a somewhat pretentious scale. In the window of the shop was an immense glass case, under which was a miniature garden most beautifully devised. In the midst of this garden was a quantity of white mice, which were wont to disport themselves in most amusing fashion. The pretty miniature garden and the curious antics of the mice had the effect of drawing numbers of women and girls to the window, where they would stand contemplating the interesting spectacle. The spot upon which they stood was formed of boards in which large holes were pierced. Underneath was the cellar. The Jew barber, as it subsequently transpired, was in the habit of passing a large portion of his time in this cellar, immediately under the woodwork, which, it was proved, had been specially perforated by his orders. This filthy “Peeping Tom” was finally betrayed by a Jew, one of his workmen. The barber had quarrelled with the man, and discharged him; and the latter communicated the story to the police. The Jew was arrested. The story made quite a sensation; and more than one lady in San Francisco, who had been interested in the pretty white mice in the Jew’s window, blushed long and deeply as she perused the particulars of his infamous misdemeanor.
In the same city, a big scandal was occasioned some years ago by the misconduct of a daughter of the wealthiest shirt-manufacturer on the Pacific Coast, — an Israelite, — with a Chinaman who was a servant in her father’s household. What became of the offspring of this scandalous intrigue cannot be definitely ascertained, but the father offered a hundred thousand dollars to any young man of decent antecedents who would make the girl his wife. His offer was confined to Gentile young men, he having a longing for a Gentile son-in-law, but he found no takers. Had he been less discriminating in his choice, and been satisfied with a Jew son-in-law, he could doubtless have married the girl off in twenty-four hours. What slip in maidenly virtue, what dishonor, would not the Jew gladly hug to his breast for the sake of a hundred thousand dollars? A hundred thousand dollars! Joost t’ink of it, Moses!
In many of the factories operated by the Jews throughout the country, the life of an honest girl therein employed is made simply a hell, by reason of the Jews’ predominant lechery. Instances in support of this assertion have turned up by scores within the past ten years. In Newark, N.J., some time ago, a number of factory-girls demanded the discharge of a certain Jew foreman, upon the ground that he was in the habit of systematically insulting them by indecent proposals and actions. The Jew employers refused to discharge the Jew employee, where upon the girls struck. As they were preparing to leave, this Jew foreman came into a room, one flight up, where a number of the girls were putting together their effects. The sight of him evoked quite a storm of indignation and rage; and, seizing upon him, the girls forced him to the window, and, disregarding his shrieks, threw him out headlong.
In Paterson, N.J., similar charges were preferred against another Jew foreman; and not long ago, in New York, the officers of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children neatly trapped a Jew employer who was in the habit of inducing little girls under fourteen to remain after work-hours, and debauching them. Similar instances of the workings of Jew lechery might be quoted from all over the country, at tedious length.
The Jew drummer is one of the most assiduous patrons of houses of prostitution throughout the country. Without the Jew clientele, it is safe to say that fully sixty-six per cent of the houses of ill-fame in the various cities of the United States, excepting, for certain obvious reasons, New York and Chicago, would be compelled to go out of existence. Not only is the Jew a liberal patron of these houses of prostitution; but such is the insatiability of his carnal appetites, and to such an extent does he give rein to his lasciviousness, that his debauches only too frequently exceed the ordinary limits of lust. Those certain hideous and abhorrent forms of vice, which have their origin in countries of the East, and which have in recent years sprung into existence in this country, have been taught to the abandoned creatures who practise them, and fostered, elaborated, and encouraged, by the lecherous Jew!
