from The Plot Against Christianity, by Elizabeth Dilling
Our family trip to Red Russia in 1931 started my dedication to anti-Communism. We were taken behind the scenes by friends working for the Soviet Government and saw deplorable conditions, first hand.
We were appalled, not only at the forced labor, the squalid crowded living quarters, the breadline rationcard workers’ stores, the mothers pushing wheelbarrows and the begging children of the State nurseries besieging us.
The open virulent anti-Christ campaign, everywhere, was a shock. In public places were the tirades by loud speaker, in Russian (our friends translated). Atheist cartoons representing Christ as a villain, a drunk, the object of a cannibalistic orgy (Holy Communion); as an oppressor of labor; again as trash being dumped from a wheelbarrow by the Soviet “Five-Year-Plan”–these lurid cartoons filled the big bulletin boards in the churches our Soviet guides took us to visit.
In the Museum of the Revolution we were shown a huge world map. As our Guide turned a switch, lights came on indicating the places all over the world where Communist Party headquarters were then functioning. Proudly our Guide announced: “Our world revolution will start with China and end with the UNITED STATES”.
“O, NO! Not THAT”, was my thought. But, country by country, the boast has been steadily advancing. I took pictures of the anti-Christ posters on the porch of St. Isaac’s Cathedral in Leningrad.
Russia Changes My Life
We were taken to the beautiful Church of the Redeemer in Moscow which was then, we were told, about to be dynamited to make way for a “Palace of Soviets”. There was a display of full-sized mannikins dressed in the robes of the Church carrying on the Good Friday Footwashing ceremony. Our Guide rasped: “This was to show that if the Archbishop could wash the feet of the humble priest the poor should endure their sufferings without complaint! Religion was always for the suppression of the people, to keep them working from dawn to late at night under the lash!”
I thought of our Savior washing the feet of His Disciples as an example, and telling them that he who would be great among you should be the servant of all (John 13:13-15; Matt. 23:11). I glanced up at the exquisite stained glass window of Christ, about to be demolished, and a little tear trickled down my cheek as I thought: “I can never hate You like that!” (I did not know then that the Pharisee Talmud gives Him FIVE sadistic deaths today).
Staying at my hotel was the representative of a foreign country. He told me of the police terror; how the last manager of that hotel had been whisked off in the middle of the night by the “Black Mariah”–like millions of others never to be seen again. Some of our party had been taken to the police station; they had laughed in a movie theatre. They were released when they explained that they had laughed at a private joke, not at the picture (which was Soviet-made). After this, and more, I returned to the “NICE” North Shore of Chicago where the “intelligentsia” were rendering brainwashed reverence to the “great Soviet Experiment”.
Behind the backs of the careless Guides I had taken movies of the rickety trains, etc., in Russia. By chance I started showing these movies to patriotic audiences, my husband running the projector as I told the story. Articles written for a little local newspaper were reprinted by the DAR and larger and larger groups called for my talks: District meetings of the Legion; the Military Intelligence; churches from coast to coast. I was recommended for all Chambers of Commerce, and spoke for the Minneapolis, Cleveland, Los Angeles, etc., groups. I broadcast over the Moody Bible Institute radio and its head became my closest friend to her death. Dr. Ironside introduced me as the only woman he had ever asked to occupy his pulpit in the Moody Church. I spoke in the great church of Dr. W. B. Riley, organizer of the World Fundamentalist Assn., my defender to his death. I frequently spoke in Detroit churches and on numerous occasions was entertained at the executives’ table at the Ford plant. Henry Ford (who never changed his mind about the role of Jewry) had me write (1939) a report on the U. of Michigan (80 pages). He contributed that year $5,000 to the cost of my office labor which cost $12,000 that year. The head of the National Sojourners had me airmail my two books to Sen. Royal Copeland to give to Vice Pres. Garner who, I was told, stayed up all night reading them and had his friend Cong. Dies of Texas start up the Dies Committee on Un-American Activities (later called the House Com.) as a result.
The hub of world Jewish anti-Christ power, the financial and industrial power beast described in Rev. 18:11-, is the AMERICAN JEWISH COMMITTEE with its B’nai B’rith brotherhood, and its “secret police”, smear and ruin arm, the Anti-Defamation League. After having pushed a reluctant USA into World War II–to spread Communism across the earth, and with its first world base, Soviet Russia, as our “ally”, it was decided to crush all ANTI-COMMUNISTS by trying them as “Fascists, Nazis”. A series of indictments against some 30 anti-Communists, of which I was one, was engineered by the American Jewish Committee, in 1942, 1943, 1944. The 1942 indictment never came to trial. The 1943 indictment was dismissed in Washington by Judge Adkins. Only the 1944 indictment went to trial under a stooge judge Eicher. An unbelievable farce was staged without any legality or fact. After the death of judge Eicher, the case was dismissed by Judge Bolitha Laws with the scathing denunciation that it had been a crime to hold those people on trial all that time without a single piece of evidence in accordance with the charge being introduced by the prosecution against ANY defendant. The Communist press had been gloating that the “sedition trial” was part of the “Moscow Purge trials” then in session all over Europe. I reproduced the item on one of my Bulletins, sent to every Congressman.
Background of E. D.
Travel in more than 60 countries convinced me that the USA had the greatest system of government, and was the most fortunate nation on earth. I did not want it Sovietized, collectivized. Careful research and documentation have resulted in the fact that nothing I have ever printed has, to date, been refuted by friend or foe.

I have already mentioned the red Rabbi Stephen S. Wise who was probably one of the
most influential Jewish leaders in the twentieth century. He was one of the original
founders of the American Jewish Committee and served as its president in 1924. He was
also a committeeman on the American Civil Liberties Union and the American League
Against War and Fascism before it changed its name to the American League for Peace
and Democracy. He worked hand-in-glove with such known communists as Earl Browder,
the communist dynamiter Tom Mooney and, of course, the communist William Z. Foster.
Wise was an ardent backer of those who burned churches and
massacred priests and nuns during the Spanish Revolution. To his dying day Rabbi Wise
never stopped his enthusiastic and often maniacal support of the Soviet Slave State and
waxed enthusiastically about the murder of countless thousands of Christians in Russia by
his Jewish brethren. When the big shots of World Jewry decided to create a new
bogeyman (new enemy of America), they selected Russia as this enemy, and Wise was
instrumental in backing every effort to incite mutiny and sabotage within the Armed
Forces of America. Congressional Investigating Committees of the time, such as the
Un-American Activities Committee, recognized Wise as being behind these efforts.
Wise bragged that the Bolshevik Revolution established the Talmudic-Zionist base in
Russia and was financed by the large Jewish banks headed by Jacob Schiff who personally
donated $20-million to the Bolshevik cause.
It was well known. throughout the administration of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt
that Schiff had financed this revolution and openly bragged about it. (See New York
Times report, 3/24/17, subtitled: “Rabbi Wise Ready for War!”) This article relates how
Jacob Schiff financed the propaganda campaign within the Czarist Army which led to the
Bolshevik success in Russia. They haven’t changed their course in 3,000 years.
At a Carnegie Hall celebration in March, 1917, it was said:
…then the rabbi (Wise) praised the Russian Revolution……. “I, cannot forget, “he said,
“that I am a member and a teacher of the race of which half has lived under the domination
of the Czar, and as a Jew, I believe that of all our achievements none has been nobler than
the part the sons and daughters of Zion have taken in the great movement which
culminated in a free Russia.”
(Interpreted correctly, that means “free to kill and enslave Christians.”)
In 1950, Wise was praised by the American Jewish Congress who said ot him:
… more than any other American he was an outstanding symbol and advocate of Zionism,
not only in the eyes of American Jews, but also the entire American people and to its
leaders, including President Wilson and F. D. R.
It was Wise who funded the first English translation of The Talmud which was
accomplished by Rabbi Rodkinson.
Elizabeth Dilling sued Wise for defamation of character and received an out-of-court
settlement. He had made the following statement at a mass meeting:
This meeting is to fight the “mamser” (Yiddish for ‘bastard’) Dilling whose lies about The
Talmud have set Judaism back a decade. She dragged our sacred Talmud in the sewer.
If I had done so, it might have helped clean it up; for a sewer is a helpful and normal
channel for cleaning; The Talmud is an abnormal, diabolical channel for funnelling
sub-sewage into the minds of those who follow it.
The whole Talmudic religion would have to be revamped to bring it up to the level of a
sewer… Its doctrines are illegal in all civilized countries. It stands for mass-murder of
non-Jews, mass-enslavement of mankind and the reversal of all laws based on Old and
New Testament morality.
What a fighter that little woman was and, oh, how we need thousands more like her! I
would like to have known her!
Posted below is the foreword from her book The Jewish Religion: Its Influence Today.
Notice how they tried to destroy this woman once she started exposing them. Wikipedia notes her 1940 book The Octopus contained attacks against the ADL. Just 4 years later she was a defendant in the Great Sedition Trial of 1944, an absolutely farcical proceeding that was described by The Chicago Tribune as “one of the blackest marks on the record of American jurisprudence.” Fortunately, a mistrial was declared.
Elizabeth Dilling: The Jewish Religion: Its Influence Today
Elizabeth Dilling Stokes was born, raised, and educated in Chicago. After attending the University of Chicago she married, and for many years devoted her life to her children, social activities on the North Shore of Chicago, and being a concert harpist. After hearing of the great “humanitarian experiment” in Soviet Russia, she traveled there in 1931, and was able to go behind the scenes. She was shocked at the forced labor, the squalid living quarters, and deplorable living conditions, and the atmosphere of fear created by the Soviet dictatorship.
She was most shocked by the virulent anti-Christianity of the atheist Communist regime.
Following her return to the United States she lectured and wrote about what she had seen, realizing from the opposition which immediately arose that a substantial Marxist movement was active in the United States. In 1934 her first book The Red Network was published, and exposÃ© of the persons and organizations furthering Red causes in the United States. In 1936, her second book, The Roosevelt Red Record and Its Background, was published.
Almost immediately after these books were published, she was attacked as “anti-semitic,” although she had actually offered her anti-Communist services to Jewish organizations, and knew nothing of organized Jewish involvement in the Marxist movement. After researching and studying, however, in 1940 she published her third book The Octopus, which dealt with these subjects.
After World War II commenced, Mrs. Dilling became convinced that, despite President Roosevelt’s protestations that not one American boy would ever again fight on foreign soil, there was a movement afoot to involve the United States, with the result that a substantial part of the world would be communized later. In 1941, she led a Mother’s March on Washington to oppose the “Lend Lease” bill, proclaimed to help keep us out of war by its sponsors, but proving the last step for our involvement. The bill passed by only one vote. A few months later, the United States went to war.
In 1944, Mrs. Dilling’s views involved her in the now infamous mass “sedition” trial. The case was ultimately dismissed by a Federal Court as “a travesty on justice.” She was later remarried to Jeremiah Stokes, a Christian anti-Communist writer, and she continued to write and lecture in behalf of Christianity and Constitutional Americanism, first publishing this book in 1964.
Mrs. Dilling Stokes died in 1966 at the age of 72.
