Irving Kristol

In George Bush and his Marxist Handlers, an article in  The Spectator [ page 42 et seq on 5 November 2005 - a significant date for Parliament  and Guy FawkesJohn Laughland tells us that Irving Kristol was the inventor of Neo-Conservatism and an unrepentant Trotskyist. Trotters founded the Fourth International Kristol after joining it  declared in 1983 that he was still proud of it. The Wikipedia's offering is consistent with this view and adds that he was a Jew. It seems that he did serve as a sergeant in tanks but how near he was  to the sharp end is another matter.

The relevance of this issue is that an unrepentant Jewish subversive is at the heart of the American po

itical machine manipulating American policy and doing it largely unrecognized by the peasant masses. Keeping the peasants ignorant is the first rule of subversion.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


Irving Kristol (b. 1920) is considered the founder of American neoconservatism. He is married to conservative author and emeritus professor Gertrude Himmelfarb, and is the father of William Kristol. He describes himself as a "liberal mugged by reality."

Irving Kristol was born into a Jewish family in New York City, earned his B.A. in History from the City College of New York in 1940, where he was an active Trotskyist. He wrote in 1983 that he was “proud” to have been a member of the Fourth International in 1940. [1] From 1941-1944, he served as staff sergeant in the armored infantry in Europe in World War II.

He was the managing editor of Commentary magazine from 1947 to 1952, cofounder of the British magazine Encounter and its editor from 1953 to 1958, editor of the Reporter from 1959 to 1960, executive vice-president of Basic Books from 1961 to 1969, and professor of social thought at the New York University Graduate School of Business from 1969 to 1988. Since 1988, he has been John M. Olin Distinguished Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

Kristol is the founder of the politics and culture journal The Public Interest and the foreign affairs journal The National Interest. He was co-editor of The Public Interest (first with Daniel Bell, then with Nathan Glazer) from its founding in 1965 until 2002 and publisher of The National Interest from its founding in 1985 to 2001.

He is a Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute since 1988, a lifetime member of the Council on Foreign Relations since 1972, a member of the Wall Street Journal Board of Contributors since 1972, and president of National Affairs, Inc.
