The Center For Garden State Families

Worldview: Karl Marx – Disconnected “Family” Man and Racist

The upheaval in our society, the blatant calls for socialism, the destruction of the nuclear family, and the call to abolish the Judeo-Christian foundation of our constitution require The Center for Garden State Families to continue our series “Worldview Matters.”

But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

1 Timothy 5:8

The Center for Garden State Families would now like to turn our attention to one of the most tragic aspects of Karl Marx as it pertains to his wife and children. Karl Marx married Jenny von Westphalen in June of 1843. The Champion of the Proletariat spent most of his life with his wife and children in miserable squalor, relying on friends and family for financial support, including his partner in crime, Friedrich Engels. Many biographers of Karl Marx report that he would be drunk at times, did not bathe and was an unkempt slob. He did not work, and this put tremendous strain on his wife, Jenny. Jenny was turned into his extractor of others’ wealth as a beggar asking family and friends for money and warding off bill collectors and mitigating eviction and auction of their possessions. As one can surmise, this had a severe impact on their children as we shall learn.

Karl Marx, who sought to abolish any inheritance in his tenets of Communism, made continuous attempts to receive an early inheritance, including coercing his mother for a $6,000 advance. What seemed to work for Mr. Marx did not work for the Bourgeois class of people he disdained. The State should take their legacy to their children, but his inheritance was another matter.

What is even more disturbing is both Karl and Jenny made sure that their children were raised as Atheists. Sadly, when the children asked Father Karl about the story of Christmas and what it meant, he said that Jesus Christ was a poor carpenter who was killed by wealthy men. Imagine all around the Marx children the Christmas lights, the good cheer, and all the songs that were sung to the Lord Jesus Christ only to be told about wealthy murderers who desired the death of a carpenter from Galilee. As if this was not bad enough, Papa Karl had more in store to terrorize his children’s young minds. When the family lived in London, Karl would take his children for walks on Sunday. While other families went to church, Karl Marx would take his children on long walks and tell them the story of a magician and toymaker named Hans Rockle, who made a pact with the devil, and there was no escaping it. Imagine their young minds trying to absorb a toymaker who was involved with the devil. Perhaps this was Karl’s story of himself as he fashioned himself as the magician and toymaker of the world whose toys involved weapons of mass destruction resulting from a pact he made with the devil. There was no way out for Karl, for he crossed the point where his own conscience became seared by his own hatred for God. Two of Karl’s daughters committed suicide, and one of them did so under a suicide pact with her husband.

One of the most distressing and tragic periods for the Marx family was between 1848 and 1850. At this point, the Marx family lived like wandering refugees between Brussels, Paris, Cologne, and London. They moved to boarding houses wherever they could find them. During this time, there was a frigid winter season, and the newest Marx child name Heinrich died before his first birthday due to these terrible conditions that Jenny and her children in which they were forced to live. Paul Johnson writes in his book Intellectuals, “Jenny left a despairing account of those days from which her spirits, and her affections for Karl Marx never really recovered.” In 1855, tragedy struck once again in the Marx household when their eight-year-old son Edgar, who was the apple of Karl’s eye, died in his arms from intestinal tuberculosis. The reason for this was due to the unhealthy living conditions in which the Marx children were raised. Karl Marx’s fury was unleashed at this juncture as he wrote in his second tome of evil revelations, Das Capital, against the Bourgious. For according to Marx, disease resulting from deprivation had killed two of his children. Yet, this disease and deprivation leading to death were none other than a mirror image of Karl’s nature reflected to him.

Karl Marx, the Provocateur of the Proletariat, did not even consider getting a job to support his wife and children. He was too busy smoking cheap cigars and writing his depraved plans of Communism to extract wealth from those who did support their families. To help the Marx family due to Karl’s blatant irresponsible self-induced misery upon his own family, Jenny’s mother sent a nanny to help them. Helene Demuth, whose nickname was Lenchen, was a childhood friend of Jenny. On the surface, this appears to comfort Jenny since she was falling into despair and illness. Although Lenchen worked for the Marx family, she received no pay from Karl Marx and was treated as an “indentured servant.” One biographer of Karl Marx wrote that Lenchen was Karl’s “Chattel to be exploited unmercifully.” Perhaps, he was practicing his Communist ideas on her even though she was a working-class woman. Lenchen was the closest thing Karl had ever gotten to the “Proletariat” to which he sought to invoke a revolution against the Borgeius class. What is truly fascinating is that the things Karl Marx accused the Bourgeois class of doing what he did to Lenchen.

Eventually, in what would be another horrific betrayal of his wife, Karl made Lenchen pregnant. One biographer wrote, “Marx was seeking a sexual receptacle in Lenchen. She was virtually his bond-slave was a matter of entire indifference to him.” In June of 1851, Lenchen gave birth to a baby boy. Karl denied that he was the father and refused any financial support. Sadly, the boy eventually named Freddie was sent into foster care. Friedrich Engels, Karl’s partner in all things, Communism, and a known womanizer, accepted paternity for the child to save Karl’s failing marriage. On Friedrich Engels’s death bed, he admitted that Freddie was indeed Karl Marx’s son.


Many biographers have speculated whether or not Karl raped or seduced Lenchen. However, based on Mr. Marx’s writings, it has been revealed that there have been many passages concerning rape, which has led many biographers to conclude that Karl Marx repeatedly raped Lenchen resulting in her pregnancy. Karl Marx even said to Friedrich Engels, “Blessed is the man with no family,” and he looked down upon women. Marx openly professed his desire to have sons and said of his wife Jenny to Friedrich Engels, “My wife, alas, has delivered a girl and not a boy” he lamented that Jenny had “deficient birthing abilities.”

In addition to his views on women, Karl Marx was a vehement racist who would direct his angry, hate-filled epithets toward blacks and Jews. Marx even wrote an essay in 1844 called On The Jewish Question, where he stated, “What is the worldly cult of the Jews? Haggling. What is his worldly God? Money. Very well! Emancipation from haggling and money, and thus from real Judaism, would be the self-emancipation of our age.” What is truly ironic is that Karl Marx treated money as his God with his dialectical materialism built on money, economics, and ultimately class warfare. Since Karl Marx was both an Atheist and an admirer of Charles Darwin, it is painful to see how these comments and others like them would be used years after his death to inspire none other than Adolph Hitler to go on his murderous rampage of the Jews.

It is now that we must pause and look at the Worldview of a man named Karl Marx. A man who took to fits of drunkenness was an unkempt jobless slob, disdained women, said “blessed is the man with no family,” was irresponsible and wreckless in his support of his children, was a racist against blacks and Jews, and a possible rapist. Is it any wonder that when there are “revolutions” started by his Worldview, we see the most hellish behavior emerge in our society. This includes the destruction of the family, invoking hatred and violence by those who do not work against those who do. It all culminates with the rape of all of our freedoms and liberty, leaving us chattel to be exploited unmercifully like indentured servants to the State. What happened to Karl Marx’s family and Lenchen would be played out on the world stage, destroying the lives of millions, and, like the poor carpenter from Galilee, their fate would be death.

The poor carpenter from Galilee, who was the Son of God, said in The Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.”
