The Martinez Perspective Ep. 6: Jewish identity politics & the hidden history of Bolshevism and Zionism
On this episode of The Martinez Perspective, host Brandon Martinez is joined by independent writer and researcher from Sweden, Lasse Wilhelmson.
Why do so few people know about the true histories of Bolshevism and Zionism? Why is there so little discussion of these movements, despite their integral role in shaping the 20th and 21st centuries?
Could it be that both movements have Jewish origins and therefore receive soft treatment from historians, academics and the media?
The destructive and murderous legacy of Bolshevism in Russia is seldom brought to the fore in mainstream discourse, yet we are fed a constant stream of messages and images about what happened to Jews during the Second World War.
Marxists and communists today have an extreme intolerance towards WW2 and holocaust revisionism. “How dare you question what the winners have told us about WW2″ the communists say. Yet, these same ideologues are extreme revisionists when it comes to the history of the Soviet Union and other communist states. Most of them openly deny the millions of victims of Lenin, Stalin and Mao. Some even deny the Gulag existed in the USSR and call the Holodomor — Stalin’s engineered Ukrainian famine genocide — a myth!
Wilhelmson discusses all of these issues from a unique insider’s perspective. In his youth he was an avowed Marxist and comes from a Jewish background. He was a political activist for years and took part in various left-wing causes. After doing his own research, Wilhelmson abandoned both Marxism and Jewish identity, and has become an outspoken critic of Israel and Zionist power.
Martinez and Wilhelmson delve into the hypocrisies of left-wing ideologues and much more on the show.
