The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is a Russian propaganda document created in 1903 in czarist Russia, depicting an alleged plot by the Jews to control the world. This document was used for years to incite pogroms against Jewish communities and is a foundational part of the Zionist Occupational Government conspiracy theory.
There is some evidence linking the creation of The Protocols to Karl Marx and Marxism. Marx was a far-Left Anti-Semite who called Jews “leper people” and the source of capitalism, which of course he hated. He opposed Zionism and believed capitalism was going to take over the world. Marxism was a part in the far-left National Socialist Germany, and they did the Holocaust, killing 6 million Jews. Some people believe it’s likely that Marx may have wrote The Protocols shortly before dying, and a far-left anti-Semite published the document.
American automaker Henry Ford republished the Protocols in the 1920s, but later apologized and withdrew the copies.
