Martín Quispe Mayta establishes a Nazi Party in Peru and calls for expulsion of all Jews from the country


Martin Quispe Mayta is the founder of a movement called "Andean Peru National Socialism Movement," whose fundamental principle is that Jews are responsible for all misfortunes. In doing this he joins other neo-Nazi organizations [described previously by] such as the Autonomous National Christian Equality (INCA) headed by Ricardo de Spirito Balbuena who has publicly declared democracy to be “bullshit,” and dresses in Nazi-inspired outfits.

In an interview with British newspaper The Guardian published August 16, 2012, Martín Quispe Mayta frowned imperiously from behind a desk adorned with portraits of Adolf Hitler, a copy of Mein Kampf, and a collection of toy cars. Draped on the wall behind him is a large red, white and black flag bearing a symbol that looks suspiciously like a swastika.

This is the headquarters of the Andean Peru National Socialism movement, a far-right group that is currently attempting to gather enough signatures to be registered as a political party. Quispe Mayta, the group's 38-year-old founder, calls himself an admirer of Hitler and openly advocates the expulsion of Peru's tiny, well-integrated Jewish population.

Peru is a country with a high degree of race and class inequalities with political and economic power largely in the hands of a minority white elite while indigenous Peruvians are at the bottom of the socioeconomic scale. Quispe Mayta belongs to one of Peru's most disadvantaged and oppressed castes. The youngest of eight children whose parents were migrants from the Andes, he was selling fruit on the street before he had finished primary school. "Why? Because the Jews controlled the world economy," he spits.

He claims to have carried out research that reveals Winston Churchill, Theodore Roosevelt, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, and Abimael Guzmán, the leader of Peru's Shining Path terror group, all had Jewish roots.

He even claims that Francisco Pizarro – the illiterate goatherd who led Spain's brutal conquest of Peru – was also Jewish. "The Jew Pizarro and his band of genocidal Jews killed millions of native Peruvians in their mission to possess our gold," he said. He feel particularly aggrieved because of his own Inca heritage, he claims. He shares his second surname with the Inca emperor Mayta Cápac.

Fewer than 5,000 Jews live in a country of nearly 30 million people. The Jewish Association of Peru said in a statement that it rejected his "open expression of anti-Semitic racism" and had "appealed to authorities to take the necessary measures to halt the incitement to racial and religious hatred".

In an interview published in The Lima-based La Republica daily on August 6, 2012, Martín Quispe Mayta sits in the office of an old house on Avenida Alfonso Ugarte, seven people, four of them dressed as officers of the Third Reich claim that the Jews are to blame for all the ills of mankind.

Martin Quispe Mayta (38), a small business owner who works in stamping advertisements on clothing, is the founder of a movement called "Andean Peru Social Nationalism," whose fundamental principle is that the Jews are responsible for all the evils of the world and that's why you have to fight "to the end".

"The number 7 is his logo, with the portrait on the wall of Hitler his ideological guide.

Despite claiming to be followers of Hitler and Nazi Germany, they argue that they are not racist. Moreover, they say that Hitler never was a racist and that his thesis of the supremacy of the Aryan race is a myth invented by the press, dominated, they say, by the Semites.

Martin Quispe did not finish primary school: he left school after the third grade. "I am convinced that education and those who govern are servants of the Jew. Why study if I can instruct me otherwise?”

He says that he got his education in adolescence from a bookstall where he found old books on World War II. One day he found a copy of The International Jew by Henry Ford, an essential book for anti-Semitic theories.

Then he read some works by the Mexican Salvador Borrego, a Mexican historian and journalist, who claimed the Second World War was provoked by a Jewish controlled Soviet Union, the Nazis were defeated, and the world fell into the grip of a Jewish "super-capitalism." His book is one of the most widely read anti-Semitic books in the Spanish world.

Ten years ago, he founded the movement, on the seventh floor of the former Cooperative Santa Elisa. His first 'militants' were drunks, drug addicts and individuals who slept near the Plaza San Martin to whom he picked to give them food and shelter and to instruct them in his preaching an anti-Semitic ideology. He says that at the time, thanks to this peculiar method of 'affiliation', he was able to gather up to 300 "social nationalists."

They are now 70 'militants', he says, 40 militants regulars and 30 supporters. Every day, the 'militant' core travel plazas in the city selling the two books Quispe published (hidden Jewish power and Jews: guilty of all the misfortunes of mankind), as well as polo shirts and printed shirts bearing the logo of the movement and DVDs with a short video that sums up his story.

-Martin, why admire Hitler?

'Because Hitler sacrificed himself for humanity, gave his life for mankind!

- Sacrificed? How's that?

'Of course, because he fought against the real enemy, who is Jewish, that kills millions, poisoning millions.

- Hitler murdered six million Jews.

'That's a lie of the Jewish press.

- But there are the gas chambers. The concentration camps, gas chambers never existed, bodies were    crematoria.

Hitler did not kill Jews, that's a Jewish story.

- Why, in your opinion, the Jews would be interested in discrediting Hitler?

Because 90% of the world's property is of the Jews.

- Where do you get that?

Look at the statistics. Find out.

-But what are your sources?

'Well ... right now I do not remember the names of journalists who have said that 90% of the property is Jewish.

- What have they done the Jews Martin? Did any of them ever hurt you?

'No, absolutely not.

- Why do you hate so much?

When you turn on the television and you see gay and ex-prostitutes in channels that are Jews? It's a matter of principle.

All have their uniforms have 7 printed on the left arm as the official logo. All are involved in collecting signatures to register with the JNE and compete in the upcoming elections. Quispe Martin says he wants to be President. What would be your first step, I ask. "Expel all Jews in the country! Confiscate their property! "He replies, his eyes glistening. The others watch but do not say anything.
