JOHN BROWN’S CONNECTION TO ZIONISM
In 1859, John Brown, the father of modern-day terrorism, led an armed invasion of the South. His objective was to promote a slave revolt. Prominent abolitionists financed his invasion. They included Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Dr. Samuel Gridley Howe, Rev. Theodore Parker, Franklin Benjamin Sanborn, Gerrit Smith, and George Luther Stearns. This group became known as the Secret Six for their involvement with Brown. Other leading New Englanders who aided Brown were Samuel Cabot and John Murray Forbes.
Higginson was from a leading New England banking family and a national leader of American Freemasonry. He funneled money from British radicals to abolitionists in Massachusetts who agreed with his goal of abolishing the United States Constitution and dissolving the United States.
Howe was from a wealthy banking family and husband of Julia Howe, who wrote the anti-Southern song the “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” Howe and his wife, Julia, founded The Commonwealth, an antislavery tabloid.
Parker was a leading Transcendentalist and Congregationalist minister and an activist in the Masonic tradition. He married into the Cabot family. He was the chief organizer of the Secret Six to finance John Brown’s raid.
Sanborn was a disciple of Parker and Ralph Waldo Emerson. In 1857, he became Brown’s chief agent in New York.
Smith was the first to finance Brown. He was the son of John Jacob Astor’s business partner. He was the largest land owner in New York, holding more than a million acres. Smith also gave Mazzini, the Italian revolutionary and later the most powerful man in the Western world, at least eight million dollars.
Stearns was the leader of the Free Soilers (the Free Soilers were antislavery agitators in Kansas). He provided Brown and his terrorist gang money and a farm in Kansas from which to operate.
Cabot paid for rifles for Brown to use in Kansas. Later his bank, Cabot Bank, lent Brown money for his terrorist operations. Brown never repaid this loan, and Cabot made no attempt to collect it.
The Massachusetts State Disunion Convention, which Higginson called in 1857, laid plans for the Harper’s Ferry raid. Its objective was to split the United States. This convention was little more than a continuation of the Essex Junto, except instead of New England States leaving the Union, the Southern States would be driven out of the Union. The Essex Junto was behind the secession movement in New England at the time of the War of 1812.
After Brown was executed, he became a martyr of the abolitionists. Ralph Waldo Emerson, a Young America supporter, an agent of the British imperialism, and ideological leader of the abolitionists conspiracy, eulogized him and promoted him as a saint.
Closely associated with the Secret Six was C.I. Scofield. They used their influence to get him admitted to the bar in Kansas although he never attended law school and did not seem to have attended any college. They got him appointed U.S. District Attorney for Kansas, but scandal soon forced him to resign. After he was convicted of forgery, he became a follower of J.N. Darby, founder of the Brethren Movement.
The Secret Six believed that the only way that America could be converted to socialism was for Christians to abandon politics and the affairs of state. (Abolitionism, socialism, and Zionism come from the same source and have the same hostility toward Christianity.) Christians had to cease being militant advocates of God’s law and the Holy Scriptures. The First Amendment needed to be subverted. Instead of meaning that government could not interfere with religion, it came to mean that the Christian Church was to be silent in the affairs of state.
Samuel Untermyer, who was a wealthy corporate Jewish lawyer, a Zionist, and a communist sympathizer if not an outright Communist, was a major supporter of Scofield and the Scofield Reference Bible. Scofield came forth to emasculate Christianity. Through his annotated Bible, he taught a futuristic eschatology: Christ will return in the last days and rapture Christians from planet Earth thereby saving them from the evils of Satan, his anti-Christ, and his one world government and one world religion. The world must become worse and worse. An absolute autocrat must arise and rule the world. Scofield taught Zionism, the establishment of a Jewish political state to supplant the Palestinians in Palestine. This Jewish state must come into being before Christ returned. The result of his work was to convert Christians to Zionists. He demoralized and neutralized Christians.
Untermyer later got President Wilson to appoint Louis Brandeis to the Supreme Court. Brandeis, a Zionists and a lawyer for the Jewish bank Kuhn, Loeb and Co., was the first Jew to serve on the Supreme Court.
Wilson’s enjoyment of writing love letters to married women made him vulnerable to blackmail. Untermyer offered to give Wilson the money to buy these letters from his blackmailer if Wilson would allow him (Untermyer) to select the next Supreme Court Justice. Wilson accepted the offer, and Louis Brandies became the first Jew to serve on the Supreme Court. Brandies also became Wilson’s advisor on the Jewish Question.
When the British government became hesitant about giving the Jews Palestine as a homeland, Wilson came forward and pressured the British government in keeping the promise that it made in the Balfour Declaration. With the Balfour Declaration, the British promised Palestine to the Jews as a Jewish homeland if the Jews brought the United States into World War I on the side of the British.
The Secret Six had supported John Brown and his war of terrorism. They also supported Scofield, who later received the support of Untemyer. These two got the Scofield Bible published, which greatly aided Zionism. Untemyer went on to get Wilson to appoint Brandis to the Supreme Court. Brandis became Wilson’s advisor on Zionism, and Palestine became the Jewish homeland. Following World War II, Jewish terrorism gave birth to Israel. Thus, the Secret Six are to some extent responsible for the turmoil occurring in the Middle East today.
