Who is Elizabeth Dilling?
ur 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.
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 best 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.

Dilling, ‘Female Führer’: A Christian Against Communism
Elizabeth Dilling was the most famous “mother”
of the 1930s and ’40s. An adamant Christian since her youth, her friends expected her to be an evangelist. She studied
at the University of Chicago and became a housewife after marriage. Her husband did well financially as a lawyer, but was
repeatedly unfaithful. During one early affair, Dilling and her mother drove to the woman’s house, “shattered
the front window with a bullet, forced their way in at gunpoint, [and] warned the woman to stop seeing Albert,” who
later gave his wife $100,000 to not divorce him.
Dilling and her husband traveled extensively. A month-long tour of the Soviet
Union in 1931 made her adamantly opposed to communism, particularly its rejection of Christianity, and she vowed to speak
out against it when she returned to the U.S. In Palestine in 1938, she filmed Jewish immigrants “ruining” the
Holy Land, and thought England had betrayed the Arabs by allowing the Jews to steal their land. It is reported that the
German government paid Dilling’s expenses on her second trip to Germany, where she attended Nazi party meetings. She
found that “the German people under Hitler are contented and happy. . . . don’t believe the stories you hear
that this man has not done a great good for this country.”
Dilling took two trips to Spain, where Francisco Franco’s officers
allowed her to visit the front and take video and photographs of “churches ruined by the Reds with the same satanic
Jewish glee shown in Russia.” When she returned to the U.S., Dilling gave film and slide presentations of her footage
to women’s groups.
Dilling had a healthy interpretation of Christianity,
in that she viewed it not as a faith of meekness, but one of fighting. She believed that Jesus had commanded Christians
to fight infidels and quoted Matt. 10:34: “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I come not to send
peace, but a sword.” She spoke of “Satan’s Red pits of Bolshevism disguised as humanitarianism”
and how Christians were vulnerable to humanist propaganda.
After a doctor told her she was close to a nervous breakdown, Dilling
took up activism as a remedy to calm her nerves. She threw herself into her work, staying up till midnight and dropping
friends who didn’t believe in or wouldn’t contribute money to her cause. Her initial efforts were anti-communist,
and she saw communists everywhere—in the YMCA and YWCA, the NAACP, and the ACLU. All were undermining families, promoting
birth control, and encouraging integration between blacks and whites. Meanwhile, university textbooks written by Jewish communists
taught students about free love, masturbation, and homosexuality.
As Dilling’s activism grew, she became a popular speaker, lecturing
as often as five times a week and composing anti-communist songs. She often faked a Yiddish accent, which “her audiences
found hilarious,” Jeansonne reports. Her audience was often moved to a frenzy, shouting out about the need to kill
For a while, her efforts centered on investigating colleges, making lists of books on Marxism and by Freud in the
libraries. Henry Ford (who paid for her office furniture and had her on his payroll for six months) paid her $5,000 to investigate
the University of Michigan, and the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce paid her to investigate UCLA. In 1933, she started compiling
a list of communists and related subversives, working 12 to 14 hours a day for a more than a year. The result was the self-published,
352-page book The Red Network: A Who’s Who and Handbook of Radicalism for Patriots. Tens of thousands of copies were sold or given away over the next few years, with assistance from the KKK, the German-American
Bund, and Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). Some chemical and ammunition companies bought and distributed copies,
with hopes that the Red Scare would increase sales of tear gas and ammo to use on the communists. A German magazine titled
Dilling the “female führer” of the U.S.
Her next book, The Roosevelt Red Record and Its Background, was published two weeks before the 1936 presidential election. She spoke out against FDR’s “Jew Deal,”
the centralization of banking, the progressive income tax, abolishing private property, restrictions on inheritances, welfare,
and laws against private possession of firearms. She also was critical of Eleanor Roosevelt, claiming FDR was too weak a
man to control his own wife.
In 1940, she published a book on the Jewish Question called The Octopus under the pseudonym the Rev. Frank Woodruff Johnson. The “octopus” was the ADL, which was trying to stage a communist coup in the U.S. and undermine Christianity.
She discussed how Marxism and Bolshevism were Jewish movements, and labeled New York City as the world’s “Jew-communist”
capital. She noted that communists used blacks to do their dirty work while seeking to enslave them. At one point, she told
her husband that she wished communists would start shooting businessmen to wake people up from their lethargy. She blamed
WWII on communists and Jews and said that, just like the first world war, Americans had to “fight the Jews’
battles all over again.”
Albert’s infidelity continued throughout
their marriage, leading her to file for divorce in 1941 in a case that made news throughout the country. Her husband said
Dilling’s reputation as a bigot had ruined his career as a lawyer, and he accused her of drunkenness, drug addiction,
profanity, and abuse. Dilling’s two grown children testified for her, while her husband and his attorney, Maurice
Weinshenk, called upon Dilling’s many enemies to testify against her. Dilling’s son ended up in fights with
his mother’s detractors outside the courtroom, and fought inside the courtroom with his father’s attorney. Weinshenk
demanded lists of names of participants in her organizations, and copies of correspondence between Dilling and fascist sympathizers.
Albert eventually fired Weinshenk, the latter claiming because the investigation was about to implicate Albert himself.
Later that year, the couple dropped the divorce proceedings. Meanwhile, Albert tried to get Weinshenk disbarred.
reconciliation lasted long enough for Albert to defend his wife in the Great Sedition Trial of 1944. During the trial, so
many people were found in contempt by Judge Edward C. Eicher that Albert formed an “Eicher Contempt Club.” Members
wore a white ribbon badge, and one star was added each time they were held in contempt. The club brought discussions in
court, publicity in The New York Times, and much-needed morale. A mistrial was declared after Eicher’s death
late that year.
The next year, Albert moved to Reno and obtained a quick divorce. Dilling claimed that their home was happy until
“organized Jewry” planted a “bleached gold digger” in their life to ruin her family “through
[her] weak husband.” Dilling appears to have let her husband act as the head of the family while she focused on child-rearing
and household management. Outside of the home, however, Dilling thought she was better able to run the country than most
of the men in charge. According to Jeansonne, Dilling saw “less threat to families in divorce, child or spousal abuse,
and poverty than in alleged plots to destroy Christianity and enslave Gentiles.”
Dilling remained an activist after the war, and
was critical of Eisenhower, JFK, Barry Goldwater, the Vietnam War, and “kosher conservative” William F. Buckley
Jr. She became an avid reader of the Talmud, and began signing her name “Elizabeth Dilling, D.D.T.,” which stood
for “Doctor of Damned Talmud.” In 1964, she and her second husband published The Plot Against Christianity. She died two years later.
