If by "master race" you mean a psychopathic racial/religious supremacy cult then, yes, you would be correct.
There is no other group that has been consistently so resilient, influential, and exceptional as the Jews. If you're approaching this from a collectivistic anger there is no reason to believe that they are not one of the strongest and most remarkable of all humanity.
It was my understanding that Nietzsche was pretty anti-Leftist. Maybe I'm wrong. Mises was one of the greatest Jews to ever live and did much to make up for the transgressions of his brethren.
Nietzsche was adamantly anti-left, but his philosophy of practically weaponized skepticism is a cornerstone of modern leftist thought. His is some of the most destructive thought ever put to paper (there is little of value left from his assault in Twilight of the Idols) and he was a German writing at the height of Germany's power. Other cases that would contradict this thesis would be Hume and Rosseau who were quite destructive in their own way despite being in nothing like the situation described. I also believe that Spinoza was very stable and Jewish, Ayn Rand as well, whatever her flaws, and she was a refugee. It's good that Mises made up for what a bunch of his ancestors did tho.
I don't why they included Einstein when Oppenheimer was Jewish too. With regard to Karl Marx, there is a racial component to being Jewish. Also, given the Communist hatred of Christianity, I don't think they would be very happy with that theory. Here is a Jewish socialist's view on Marx's Jewishness.
I can point you to the theory if you would like. There is no doubt that Marx was a deeply faithful Christian for a time. Socialism's relationship to the Jews is complicated, there's no doubt about that, but there's also no doubt that socialism has a history of antisemitism associated with it. It is not in any way fair to say that communism or socialism is straightforwardly Jewish.
Anyway, apart from everything else the entire thesis here wreaks to me. The Jews are a people of the book and of a set of laws. The word and intellect is exactly what has become sound and stable, and it exists in a set form within a rational tradition. There is no clear theoretical reason to associate Jewish thought with subversion, quite the opposite, and clearly we can point to a number of counterexamples right off the bat.
