“The International Jew” Study Hour presents:  Hadding Scott and Carolyn Yeager read and comment on Chapter 64, “The Jewish Element in Bootlegging Evil.”

The Prohibition forces can be seen as between those who most value “personal liberty” vs those more concerned with “public safety.”  Jews were against Prohibition on “moral” grounds (interfering with free choice) but they also saw how they could profit from it. Some highlights from the chapter:

  • A Jewish religious weekly magazine published a half-tone picture of Christ endorsing the liquor traffic;
  • The Jewish stage, the movies, jazz music and fake medical “experts” were enlisted to fight for the continuation of drinking;
  • Bootlegging was a 95 percent Jewish controlled business in which even Rabbis were active in gaining permits for “ritual liquor”;
  • The Gentile “boobs” who patronized the bootleggers were sold a greatly overpriced liquor that never was what it was represented to be;
  • Among the majority of Jews it was a cause for boast, and Jewish comics and comedians joked about it.
