George Lincoln Rockwell Chapter 10 – The Facts of Race | Genius

1 If Black men are simply White men with dark skins, then it would be stupid and wicked bigotry to discriminate against Black men.

2 If there is NO OTHER difference between White men and Black men than skin color, if there are no differences of mind or character, then everything the liberals and race-mixers preach would be true.

3 Just as it would be insane and wicked to hate and discriminate against people with red hair, so it would be insanity and wickedness to discriminate against a man born with a dark skin – IF the dark skin is the ONLY difference.

4 There would be no excuse for not admitting Negroes at once to full equality with White men, including the complete right to marry and breed with our women, if they are really equal.

5 But if there ARE differences of mind and character between the Negro and White man, in addition to skin color, and if the Negro has a lower grade mind and major character defects as a whole race, then it is the height of wickedness and insanity to pollute our White Race with these low-grade traits of mind and character.

6 The Negro question is thus not a question of philosophy, but of fact.

7 If, as the Jews, Communists and egalitarian liberals contend, Negroes are the same as White people, except for skin color, then I am indeed a hate-monger, a bigot, and a wicked man for fighting race mixing as hard as we do.

8 But if the race of Negroes is, as a matter of FACT, INFERIOR, then it is the other way around and the liberals, Jews, Communists and egalitarians are the wicked poisoners of a million years of White evolution and breeding.

9 What are the facts?

10 Is it so hard to find out whether the Negro is, in fact, the same as a White Man, except for skin color? Are all the well-known Negro faults the result of “persecution” by Whites?

11 Will equal treatment result eventually in equal people? Or are most Negroes born inferior?

12 The FACTS alone can answer those questions.

13 Any White Man who has had to live among real Negroes promptly finds out that the myth about no difference except skin-color is a lie.

14 The “all-men-are-equal” baloney goes up in a puff of smoke whenever a group of genuine, live Negroes shows up and moves in close to White people.

15 In fact the belief in black “equality” is inversely proportional to the number of Blacks living in the area. The mathematical correlation is not “good;” it is perfect.

16 In areas such as Canada, where there are almost no Negroes, you will find that the myth of equality is so strong you can get beaten up for questioning it.

17 In areas where there are only a very few Negroes, the “equality” myth is still very strong, because, usually, where the Negroes are a very tiny minority, they are forced to act like White people and are often almost White themselves. Also, the rare Negroes present, in such areas, are usually highly selected, and highly trained because it is only the better specimens who had the ambition to emigrate to the new area, and who thus get more education.

18 But in areas where there are many Negroes, you will find that the White people do not believe the equality myth, no matter how much it is pushed on them. Just as you couldn’t sell the idea that skunks don’t stink wherever there are plenty of skunks, so you can’t peddle the “niggers-are-wonderful” lie wherever there are plenty of the colored “brothers” handy for folks to observe.

19 And in areas where there are more Black than White people, as in Mississippi, you will find tremendous resistance to the Blacks, and thorough understanding of the primitive savage and utterly different natures of these inferior specimens of humanity.

20 Unless this direct correlation of a low opinion of Negroes wherever there are many Negroes is the result of the inferiority of the Negroes themselves, you must conclude that somehow, almost all the people in South Africa are “bigots,” almost all the people of the U.S. South are “bigots,” and now, almost all the people who live in the big cities of the North are also “bigots.”

21 The same Northern cities which once believed the South was “bigoted” and mistreating the Negroes, now produce howling mobs of Whites hurling rocks and bottles whenever Blacks try to move into their neighborhoods These people could be swindled with the lie that Negroes are really Whites with dark skins only so long as they were not able to observe Negroes, experience Negroes, and suffer from Negroes. But as soon as large numbers of Negroes moved in, the Whites quickly learned the truth about them.

22 If anybody will put up the money for the experiment, I can prove that hatred of race mixing is not a “prejudice’ but the result of knowledge, by taking the most liberal and Negro-loving town in upper Ohio, for instance, or North Dakota, and buying up about half the homes in the town and filling them up with real, live, ordinary, garden-variety Negroes. In a few months, that town will be just as full of “bigots” and “nigger-haters” as any town in Mississippi.

23 And the reason will be, not that the White people are “prejudiced,” but that Negroes are simply biologically inferior. And the results of pretending otherwise can be seen wherever these pitiful black creatures abound.

24 Anybody who tries to live with skunks will become “bigoted” and “prejudiced” against skunks, and tell you that “‘skunks stink.”

25 And, without exception, anybody who is forced to live with masses of Negroes (not a few select Negro doctors or lawyers, but the real, black, average Negro) will quickly form the opinion that Negroes are a very low form of humanity, and we cannot mix with them without reverting to the jungle and the filth in which they live.

26 The only reason that so many people do not know that fact today (as all people once did), is because the same Jews who have provided us with Communism, Zionism, degeneracy and decay of Western Civilization, have methodically gone about the task of promoting the lie that Negroes are equal. They know it’s a lie, but they have promoted it consciously, precisely because, as we have previously shown, Jews, like ship-wreckers of old, flourish amidst chaos and ruin, and perish in a healthy society. Nothing so quickly deprives a society of its vigor as being mixed with Negroes.

27 Inevitably, when I point all this out to “intellectuals” in the colleges, they sneer back with a long list of Negro “achievers” who are statesmen, writers, geniuses, etc. They trot out Senator Edward Brooke, Adam Clayton Powell, William White, W. E. B. Dubois, Ralph Bunch, etc.

28 This is one of the trick arguments that looks good until you slow down and examine it critically. Then you will see that it is pure madness to judge “Negroes” by the likes of such “Negroes.” They are presenting a MIXTURE to try to prove the qualities of one INGREDIENT. Dynamite is made of sawdust and nitro-glycerin. So, in a sense, you could say that dynamite is “made out” of wood.

29 But would anybody be mad enough to contend, therefore, that wood is explosive? When two things are mixed, the resulting product cannot be used to prove the qualities of either single ingredient.

30 When we try to discuss the natural abilities of the NEGRO, the liberals, Reds and Jews instantly start pointing with pride to creatures which are anything but real Negroes – men who are almost always WHITE men with a small amount of Negro blood in them.

31 The usual examples in present day America are Adam Clayton Powell, who passed for White in college, and whose parents appear to be almost wholly White; Robert Weaver, housing czar; W. E. B. Dubois, who looked to be a White Man, with slightly Negroid features; the newly elected Senator Brooke, who is a White man with a bit of Negro blood; and dozens of others like them.

32 The only place you will find the black, heavily Negroid types in the public eye is in the fields where Negroes in Africa also excel: athletics, tom-tom beating, jungle chanting, etc.

33 In all the professions and upper echelons of accomplishments, WHENEVER YOU FIND AN INTELLECTUAL NEGRO you will find that he is almost always a WHITE man, with just enough colored blood to give the liberals something to vibrate about.

34 This is just as crazy as sprinkling some sawdust into nitro-glycerin to make dynamite, making it blow up with a bang – and then smirking that you have “proved” that wood is explosive. Dynamite is NOT wood, even though there is sawdust in it, and slightly soiled White Men with a little Negro blood are NOT “NEGROES” (in the biological sense.)

35 If you wish to know the properties of wood, you examine wood ALL BY ITSELF, the way it comes out of a tree.

36 If you wish to know the properties of the Negro, you must examine him ALL BY HIMSELF, the way he comes out of the Congo.

37 When we do this, we find not the sort of intelligence and ability found in a Senator Brooke but something far more akin to the African gorilla – something dark and terrible, something animal-like and primitive.

38 That is not “hate;” that is a FACT.

39 Liberals never tire of moaning that this obvious inferiority is only because of “lack of opportunity.” But they utterly ignore the fact that Africa is perhaps the richest continent on earth.

40 The only reason it remained savage was because there were no men there capable of seeing and understanding the possibilities.

41 Thomas Dixon, author of the book that became the greatest movie of all time, “The Birth of a Nation,” has put the matter more beautifully and clearly than I could hope to imitate;

42 “‘Can we assimilate the Negro? The very question is pollution. In Haiti no White man can own land. Black dukes and marquises drive over them and swear at them for getting under their wheels. Is civilization a patent cloak with which law-tinkers can wrap an animal and make him a king?’

43 ‘But the Negro must be protected by the ballot,’ protested the statesman. ‘The humblest man must have the opportunity to rise. The real issue is Democracy.’

44 ‘The issue, sir, is Civilization; Not whether a Negro shall be protected, but whether Society is worth saving from barbarism.’

45 “The statesman can educate,’ put in the Commoner.

46 The doctor cleared his throat with a quick little nervous cough he was in the habit of giving when deeply moved.

47 `Education, sir, is the development of that which is. Since the dawn of history the Negro has owned the continent of Africa – rich beyond the dream of poet’s fancy, crunching acres of diamonds beneath his bare black feet. Yet he never picked one up from the dust until a White man showed to him its glittering light. His land swarmed with powerful and docile animals, yet he never dreamed a harness, cart, or sled. A hunter by necessity, he never made an axe, spear, or arrowhead worth preserving beyond the moment of its use. He lived as an ox, content to graze for an hour. In a land of stone and timber he never sawed a foot of lumber, carved a block, or built a house save of broken sticks and mud. With league on league of ocean strand and miles of in land seas, for four thousand years he watched their surface ripple under the wind, heard the thunder of the surf on his beach, the howl of the storm over his head, gazed on the dim blue horizon calling him to worlds that lie beyond, and yet he never dreamed a sail! He lived as his fathers lived – stole his food, worked his wife, sold his children, ate his brother, content to drink, sing, dance, and sport as the ape. And this creature, half child, half animal, the sport of impulse, whim, and conceit, “pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw,” a being who, left to his will, roams at night and sleeps in the day, whose speech knows no word of love, whose passions, once aroused, are as the fury of the tiger -they have set this thing to rule over the Southern people -‘”

48 Perhaps the most revealing and unanswerable study of racial differences between White and Black was made in Virginia by a Dr. Ferguson.1

49 Most studies seeking the answer to racial differences between Black and White are useless, because they totally ignore the White blood in many of the “Blacks” they test.

50 Ferguson took all the school children of Virginia, tested them all for intelligence, and then checked their racial backgrounds.

51 He divided them up into five racial groups. The first group was pure Black. The second group consisted of those having one White grandparent. The third group had two White grandparents, and the fourth group had three White grandparents. The fifth group, of course, was the pure Whites.

52 1. FERGUSON, G. 0., Jr. “The Psychology of the Negro” Arch. Of Psychology Number 36, April, 1916

53 The pure Blacks tested at least 40 percent below the pure Whites – (which is still the case today, in spite of all the money spent on education and pampering of the Blacks.)

54 Those “Negroes” with one White grandparent did slightly better than the pure Blacks; with two White grandparents, still better; with three White grandparents almost as good as the Whites themselves.

55 All of these Blacks lived as and considered themselves “Negroes.” Their environments and “advantages” or disadvantages were exactly the same.

56 Yet ability was exactly proportional to the amount of White blood!

57 The liberals and Jews make a million excuses for this astounding correlation. But the facts remain exactly the same to this day, even on the U.S. draft mental examinations, in which 56.1 percent of the Blacks still can’t pass the test, while only 15.4 percent of the Whites fail – even though the poverty and disadvantages of many of the Whites are as bad or worse than that of many Negroes. (SOURCE: Department of Labor, The Negro Family, March 1965, p. 75)

58 Those who insist that “lack of advantages” is what holds the Blacks back have an impossible task to explain what happened in Washington’s schools.

59 As long as the schools were white-run, and segregated, they were the best – even with only a fraction of the money and “advantages.”

60 Now that they are almost wholly Black since desegregation, in spite of more money than has ever been poured out anywhere else, they are the WORST!

61 Who did this, the White people? George Wallace? Hitler? Rockwell?

62 The answer which screams itself at all those who are not willfully deaf is that the Blacks simply lack the stuff to make good students.

63 Runners, jumpers, singers, drummers – and robbers and rapers – they surely are, and good ones. Students, executives, great creators, intellectuals, etc., pure Blacks are NOT – even though our liberal establishment and the Jews never tire of parading Negro inanities and trash as “literature” and “art.”

64 A recent NBC television documentary on the Igoe Housing Project in Saint Louis showed the full horror of what these ape-like people do when turned loose in modern civilization. The windows on the first four floors were smashed out from the outside by rocks. The windows on all the top floors were smashed out from the inside. The elevators are used so extensively for urinals, that the wiring is all shorted out, and the floors are rotted away. The halls stink of urine and feces, and the walls are covered with unspeakable obscenities. The light fixtures are all smashed, and in the dark halls and basement laundry rooms, the animalistic blacks rape and molest almost all the women, young and old, until the occupants are terrified.

65 Instead of realizing that all of this is not because of “deprivation,” but because of the nature of the beast, the U.S. Government is moving all the blacks out of one building at a time, putting in rock-proof screens on the outside of the windows on the first four floors, and on the inside of the others, putting in stone tiling in the elevators to make them more impervious to all the Negro urine, water-proofing the wires, putting in the kind of light fixtures they have in jails which can’t be smashed, repainting the walls with special paint so all the Negro vileness can be washed off every day or every few hours, and installing dozens of police to patrol the corridors. But even NBC admitted, “It may do no good.” The blacks will manage to wreck it somehow.

66 You can put fancy clothes on them, send them to Harvard, teach them to play the harp, teach them to work a computer, and even teach them to be a “Ph.D.” But they will still be like chimpanzees riding bicycles; they will do what they are trained and forced to do, but they cannot and never will do it all by themselves. The drive to civilize, organize, discipline and restrain themselves is lacking in the pure black. The trained “PhD” Negroes in colleges and in judges’ robes are artificial, not real; – they don’t rise to such abilities on their own racial heritage.

67 Let’s recall some basic facts about life that most men have forgotten.

68 Nobody has to teach a dog to bark. And a cat that never saw another cat knows how to meow.

69 The very nature of “dogness” impels a dog to bark rather than make some other kind of noise. The nature of “catness” impels the cat lo meow.

70 Perhaps this sort of observation seems like a waste of time.

71 Everybody knows these things.

72 Do they?

73 Sure they do, People know that dogs bark, cats meow, and they know that each kind of animal is born with its own kind of nature, feelings and responses to it environment.

74 Most people also realize that it is in the very nature of the breed of bulldogs to hold on with their teeth until death stops them, for pointers to point, for spaniels to take to the water, and for greyhounds to run fast. They know that if you want a dog with a nature which bites and hangs on, you don’t choose a greyhound but a bulldog, They know that if you want a dog who can and will run fast, you don’t want a bulldog but a greyhound.

75 In short, most people know that, while “all dogs are dogs,” different BREEDS of dogs have different NATURES.

76 Not only do dogs bark because they are dogs, but most folks know that certain breeds of dog have different NATURES and kinds of intelligence – because of their breed.

77 In fact, everybody knows that breeds are different in the whole animal world.

78 But they no longer know it about one animal – MAN. They have been so conditioned and twisted in their thinking about “man” that they have completely forgotten that man, too, is also an animal before he is a man, and that he is born with the particular nature of his particular BREED. Nobody in his right mind would judge each dog solely as an “individual.” Any person in his right mind knows that breed determines the basic nature of most of the dogs in that breed. A person looking for a tenacious dog which will bite and hang on, with a stubborn nature, would be wasting his time trying to find a dog among the breed of Chihuahuas or poodles, when he could quickly find a dog with such a nature among bulldogs – even though all of them are dogs. Nobody in his right mind would say, “all dogs are equal” or “all birds are equal.”

79 But Jews and liberals have taught most men that to look for any special characteristic among any certain breed of men is “bigotry” and “hate”

80 This utter madness may well be the one single error of modern man which will finish him off and send the planet spinning through the ether once again, silent and empty of men, as it once was for millions of years.

81 The record shows that there is only one breed of “man” which has, as a matter or history, produced “civilization.”

82 Just as a dog barks because he is a dog, a cat meows, and a bulldog hangs on, so one breed of “man,” the Aryan White Man, carries with him the nature that produces the justice, order and technology that we call “civilization.”

83 Wherever he has gone, the White Aryan has poured out of him the things we call “civilization” from inside, precisely the way a dog naturally produces barks and a cat produces meows.

84 This book is not and cannot be an anthropology text. It is designed to be a popular book, for the average American, and cannot get into complicated and difficult scientific areas.

85 However, the evidence that the Aryan White man, particularly the Nordic, is the author of “civilization,” as a matter of breed, is overwhelming, and must be known to our people if they are to survive.

86 Our people must also know that Negro inferiority has existed for hundreds of thousands of years. Everybody knows that there are some people who are naturally lazy and indolent, who prefer lying around like slugs in the sun. There are other people for who such utter uselessness and idleness is intolerable. Some people just have to be up and doing. They get restless and bored with more than a very little bit of “resting.”

87 Out of the original pool of humanity a million years ago, some were lazy, some were energetic.

88 The lazy and easy-going naturally stayed in the warm climates – the “Garden of Eden,” where you can lay around without getting too cold and where coconuts fall on you for food. These people bred more of their own lazy kind. Over the centuries and the thousands of years, these easy-going people stayed in the easy places to survive on the earth, inbred with each other, and produced races of easygoing, lazy people.

89 On the other hand, some energetic, vigorous, early humans began to move around and migrate over the face of the planet. Some of them arrived in the frozen, semi-arctic sections of Northern Europe.

90 To survive in such a bitter climate, men needed something more than the qualities of the easy-going people of the warm tropics.

91 In the storms and blizzards of a brutal winter, those humans who had not foreseen hard times, had not laid by stores for food, and had not built themselves shelters strong enough to withstand the battering of the northern gales, simply died and did not breed.

92 More importantly, selfish men could not survive in the cold North. Men had to be ready to help each other and be fair to each other to survive in the North.

93 In the warm climates, a man could survive with a minimum of foresight and with selfish disregard of others. His shelter could be of sticks and mud. His food supply was instantly available. He had no need for stores. He did not suffer if he lacked planning and foresight. He needed little help from other men.

94 But in the North, selfishness was a luxury man could not afford. Northern European man had to develop foresight and planning to survive the rigors of his environment. He had to learn to build substantial dwellings. He had to exercise and develop abstract mental powers to think in terms of the future not required in the tropics. Those who didn’t died, and their qualities died out with them.

95 A natural selection of men occurred when the energetic ones left the warm climates where man originated, leaving the lazy ones behind.

96 In the North, man had to think ahead to live.

97 The foresighted and unselfish people of the north then bred with each other to produce still more foresighted, resourceful and unselfish people, just as you can breed the qualities of aggressiveness and tenaciousness into the bulldog by inbreeding.

98 Over hundreds of thousands of years, being forced to think and plan ahead, being forced to help his neighbors, the people of the North bred a race of humans in whom the qualities of energy, thought, resourcefulness and unselfishness were paramount.

99 (It should be pointed out here that Eskimos, who do not exhibit these qualities so much, are relatively recent arrivals in the North, having been driven to the arctic wastes by better men who conquered them and drove them out of more moderate climates in Asia. On the other hand, the geological records show that the Nordic Northern European has inhabited his cold climate for many hundreds of thousands of years.)

100 The Northern climate thus selected and bred a race of people who had the ability to think ahead; to think in terms of, not the concrete realities of the present moment, but the intangible ideas and conceptions of the storms, difficulties and conditions they would have to deal with in the future.

Who was George Lincoln Rockwell? | News For The Blind

Ten thousand incensed Jews swarmed into New York Citys Central Park where the man they hated most planned to speak in the free forum area. The huge mob was swollen with overwrought people loudly screaming for his blood. They brandished lead pipes and pieces of broken pavement in the best Old Testament traditions of free speech. No one really expected him to show up in the face of such demented numbers, so the frothing Chosen turned the event into an anti-Nazi celebration. They clapped and sang Havanagila and performed round-dances in the street. But at the height of their vengeful hysteria, at the appointed time, a big man standing tall and alone in the very midst of the insane rabble threw off his long, concealing overcoat. As if by black magic, George Lincoln Rockwell appeared in full Stormtrooper uniform in the eye of an emotional hurricane, surrounded by enemies too stunned to move. Incredibly, he began to taunt them, deriding them to their camel-faces as cowards and fugitives from lunatic asylums.

He had shown up, he said, at their request, so lets see how tough they really were. No one made a move against the formidable ex-U.S. Navy Commander. He strutted smiling among them, ridiculing their false promises to prevent his New York speech. It was a very personal confrontation between Aryan man and his Jewish opposites, between racial matter and anti-matter. An explosion was inevitable.

Only by degrees did the Hebes belatedly psych themselves up to sufficient hysteria. In a convulsive, screaming lunge they fell on Commander Rockwell. But he had the psychological advantage of a larger-than life personal courage. In an utterly one-sided battle too incredible for anyone who has not actually witnessed or fought through such a moment, he bashed and throttled his way into the shrieking crowd. The grasping, spitting devils fell on all sides, as the lone hero of the White race cut a path of blood and broken bones across New York City. They never knocked him off his feet and he never tired of splitting enemy jaws.

Alarmed and inspired by such Herculean bravery, a squad of policeman crashed into the howling throng swinging night sticks. Kosher casualties mounted rapidly, as the cops obviously relished their sport. They blazed a path of splattering gore to the ever-battling Rockwell, and escorted him over the blubbering bodies of fallen Jews. He emerged with only a few cuts and minor bruises. Even his uniform was in relatively good shape.

George Lincoln Rockwell had come a long way from his birthplace in central Illinois, on March 9th, 1918. To be sure, his youth was far removed from the battlefields of New York City. He yearned to become a successful commercial artist, an ambition fulfilled when he won first prize in a national competition for the Cancer Foundation. But the Second World War changed his plans forever. Volunteering as a U.S. Navy pilot even before Americas official entry into the conflict, he was persuaded to believe with millions of other betrayed Americans that Adolf Hitler was getting ready to take over Coney Island and the Statue of Liberty. Decorated by wars end for combat duty against German U-boats, he re-enlisted for the Korean War, rising to the rank of Commander. While stationed in Iceland, he met and married a beautiful Nordic woman, with whom he raised a family in the 1950s.

But since the end of World War Two, Rockwell had grown increasingly troubled by the deteriorating condition of Western Civilization, the antidote for which he finally discovered in Mein Kampf. Aware at last of his real destiny, he founded the American Nazi Party, fulfilling a prophesy the Fhrer made shortly before his death:

The fight against the Jews will not be renewed first in Europe, but in the United States. Within twenty five years, the Americans will have begun to come to their senses about the Jewish Question.

But in 1958, the American people were too complacent and self-satisfied for White Revolution. The nigger riots, economic chaos, cultural rot and Vietnam era treason of the 60s still lay before them. In spite of Gentile apathy, Rockwells activism blasted to their consciousness through the Paper Curtain, as he referred to the Jewish boycott in the newsmedia of all information about National Socialism.

Years of unrewarding sacrifice finally bore fruit with Black demonstrations onto Midwestern White working class neighborhoods. Riding the crest of popular resentment against forced integration, Commander Rockwell addressed large assemblies of his fellow White Americans, who for the first time showered him with the gratitude he deserved. The Jews are Through in 72!, an often repeated slogan of the times, represented the high hopes then expressed for his bid for the presidency of the United States.

Rockwells popularity near the close of the decade was such that he seemed bound to win the highest seat in the land someday. That, tragically, was also the consensus of the Jew System, and he was assassinated under circumstances still shrouded in mystery, in Arlington, Virginia.

Destiny certainly chose the ideal man to represent the postwar National Socialist Movement. Six feet, four inches tall, ruggedly handsome, athletic, alert and quick-witted, he was the quintessential American folk-hero in the same mold, physically at any rate, as John Wayne or Clark Gable, with a similar charismatic appeal the American soul most responds to. Indeed to some observers, he resembled a cross between James Garner and Tyrannosaurus Rex, particularly when in combat. Yet, for all his dynamism, he was a doting father figure and an absolutely loyal friend.

In the highest traditions of National Socialist leadership, he constantly hurled himself unhesitatingly among the enemy, who never failed to outnumber him. When the first Viet Cong flag was publicly paraded by a Yiddish Communist through the streets of Boston in 1956, Rockwell launched himself into the Marxist demonstration of traitors and fools to tear it down and go to jail for the kind of selfless patriotism no one else dared. As he said modestly of himself on such occasions, he was only trying to undo in a small way the damage he had done to National Socialism as a deceived American in World War Two.

The enemies of the White race would like to pretend that George Lincoln Rockwell never existed. Certainly, they have done everything possible to expunge his name from American history. But their efforts continue to fail. His image and deeds are forever engraved in the hearts and memories of millions who lived through the turbulent decade of the Sixties. His writings and recorded spoken words continue to educate and inspire new generations of racial patriots.

Much as we mourn his passing, even after twenty five years, we know he did not die before his time, as does no man. It is, after all, the fate of the greatest heroes not to die peacefully of old age, but to fall in their prime under the hatred of their enemies. Only in this manner may they live on forever in the folkish consciousness of our race.

George Lincoln Rockwell made every living National Socialist and those yet unborn incomparably richer for his having lived. He single-handedly lifted our banner from the ashes of Berlin into the skies of America. He represented our Idea in so personable, professional and winning a fashion, he made us proud to be a part of his struggle. We are honored to accept his legacy. In his name, sanctified by the blood of self-sacrifice, we shall use it to the fullest advantage!

A mans life is his noblest work. And if his work is carried on by those who survive him, he is not truly dead. Through us, Rockwell lives!

Erick Werner: Never OK to use political violence – Santa Clarita Valley Signal

In 1941 the U.S. declared war on Nazi Germany. By 1945 that regime, and its adherents, had been wholly wiped away.

It is interesting, then, that in 2017 the question has come up: Is it OK to punch a Nazi? The answer for many has been Yes, it certainly is OK.

However, the fundamental issue with this logic falls in line with the fact that because there are no longer any real, official Nazis anymore, then simply applying that label to anyone you disagree with gives you carte blanche to use violence to silence that persons views.

The topic itself came up when white nationalist and head of the National Policy Institute Richard Spencer was assaulted on Inauguration Day in Washington, D.C. While giving an on-the-street interview with ABC, a member of the Antifa black bloc ran up and sucker-punched Spencer.

Now, for those unfamiliar with the group, Antifa stands for Anti-Fascist and is a group that has been operating as a far-left protest and riot organization that has grown considerably in the United States.

A fair amount of the destruction caused in recent protests on college campuses has been due to the actions of Antifa.

So when an Antifa member hit Richard Spencer, the conversation that ensued was not one of condemnation, but one in which people legitimately questioned whether the blow was socially acceptable. Organizations like the Guardian published videos advocating for this kind of behavior.

The fact of the matter is that for a representative Jeffersonian democracy to work, political violence must be shunned at every level, no matter how ignorant or misguided an individuals views are.

To be certain, I have disagreements with Richard Spencer and do not advocate his style of holistic identitarianism. However, if I met him in a crowd, I would much rather have a debate, rather than a fight.

Richard Spencer aside, however, let us assume the position of the left that implicitly or explicitly justifies political violence if it is targeted at a Nazi.

What in 2017 constitutes a Nazi? The SS has been a defunct organization since 1945, and even George Lincoln Rockwell has been dead since the late 1960s. How, then, would someone identify a modern Nazi?

Critics might cite Neo-Nazis who come out of prison gangs, of course, but lets be honest with ourselves those guys arent the people who are in any threat of being targeting for political violence. They are not the individuals that Antifa and those supporting the group are advocating violence against.

No, Antifa and the authoritarian left is decidedly bringing back the label Nazi as a way to justify violence against those they deem politically incorrect.

The punching of Richard Spencer was just one of many assaults on supposed Fascists though certainly a well-documented one due to his prominence.

Many dozens, if not hundreds, of other assaults have taken place at an alarming rate over the past year or so, and the trend does not seem to be letting up.

Make no mistake, this is the degeneracy of the American political system, and it is being spurred on by turning something that was once a well-defined, and frankly archaic, political party into a catch-all for those deemed conservative or on the political right.

These people do not want to listen and debate; they want to brutalize and punish.

In a sense, they are forgoing their civic duty as it was visualized by our Founding Fathers. Every enfranchised person should, theoretically, be an informed advocate of his or her political opinions.

These people are using the privilege of protest allotted by this country to silence opposition.

As we continue to move forward, there will no doubt continue to be more such events. To save the American political process, we must unmask these Antifa rioters and hold accountable those who grant their implicit support.

Only then will we be able to once more stand united and strong.

Give Trump the silent treatment – The Hill (blog)

Years ago, I was a lawyer for the American Jewish Congress, Commission on Law and Social Action in New York City.

Im reminded now about one case that we handled that involved the Nazi spokesman George Lincoln Rockwell who sought the right to speak at a public park.

Among others, Jewish groups protested. Why allow vile speech in public places, they claimed?

I argued that we only brought attention to his stupid rants by making him a victim who would claim he was denied his First Amendment rights.

The same thing is going on now in Berkeley, California where two outrageous speakers were rebuffed by liberals who dont want them to have a voice, so obnoxious to protesters.

In all these instances, my view is the ACLU view, and a pragmatic one, at that. Only by protesting their rights to speak do we give these provocateurs the larger audience they never would have had if they were simply ignored.

These examples bring me to the point that national media is being fooled by President Trump.

During the debates, while Trump insulted the media, they sat there like props, and gave his insults the very audience he desired. Now, Trumps outrageous tweets are covered endlessly by media on both sides of the political spectrum.

The media networks included havent learned their lesson from the election where Trump news sucked the air out of coverage of his competitors, Democratic and Republican. Trump insults the Pope, John McCainJohn McCainTop commander: Don’t bet on China reining in North Korea Trudeau, Trump speak for second night about US-Canada trade McCain: China has done nothing on North Korea MORE, his opponents, and the media itself which covers Trumps outrages ad nauseum, to the exclusion of reasonable other points of view.

The same phenomenon continues to the present. Trump tweets and the media genuflects. Trump cares nothing about press criticism so long as he gets the coverage. He boasted to Associated Press that his ratings for press coverage is the highest since 9/11! Its a tremendous advantage, he instructed the media he publicly deplores.

Bernie SandersBernie SandersNebraska Dem chair slams Perez for dismissing anti-abortion Dems Sanders: Trump couldn’t be ‘more wrong’ on climate Sanders on skipping WH Korea briefing: ‘I did not want to be part of a photo op’ MORE is now the most popular politician in America, according to, ironically, to a Fox News poll.

But do you see the media covering his every move? His constructive politicking gets sparse coverage while Trump’s outrages are exhaustively covered, in protest and in admiration, but to the exclusion of his political opponents in his party and the opposition. One expects fawning coverage from his admirers at FOX; but Rachel, Wolf, Lawrence, et. al., you are keeping him in the news and that is his power.

Look the other way when he rants to his followers, and like Rockwell, and Coulter and others who media popularized in the past, and they will be left only with their right to speak to their relatively few followers, and are denied the larger audience.

Commander Rockwell: the original Nazi troll.

Today, the 9th of March, is the 99th birthday of commander George Lincoln Rockwell, the founder of the American Nazi Party. This is a figure that everyone on the right should be familiar with, and draw inspiration from.

While theres much to be learned from the lives of Hitler or Mussolini, they lived in a very different world than what we have today; their societies werent completely Jewed in the way America is. They still had strong men and national pride.

In that sense, Rockwells life speaks to modern people much more directly than former great men who fought for Western civilization. He faced many of the same issues we face today, and fought the same forces that oppose us as well.

For this occasion, Ive made a modern, readable version of his classic autobiography This Time, the World available to everyone.

Download here. Cover by Alexander Slavros.

This is a book I would actually recommend over Mein Kampf to anyone wanting to learn about the struggle. Rockwell did some incredible things in his day, including starting popular magazines, publishing comic books, meeting with high level government officials and military leaders, and even opening communications with black nationalists who desired to separate from White America.

The American Nazi Party was the origin point for a lot of the movements and organizations that upheld the torch of radical nationalism in America. William Pierce of the National Alliance, Joseph Tomassi of the NSLF and James Mason of Universal Order were all members of Rockwells group at some point or other.

His studies in marketing gave him a keen understanding of human psychology and the use of propaganda to affect the masses. He used this understanding to great effect, taking the American media by storm in much the same way that Nazi trolls are doing today.

Its important to remember our roots and learn from our past heroes.

So lets declare this George Lincoln Rockwell day!

When Malcolm X Met the Nazis – Vice

Members of the American Nazi Party listened to Malcolm X speak at a Nation of Islam rally in Washington, DC, on June 25, 1961. Contact sheet Eve Arnold/Magnum Photos

On Sunday, June 25, 1961, ten members of the American Nazi Party arrived at a Nation of Islam rally in Washington, DC. The party’s founder, George Lincoln Rockwell, led them inside the Uline Arena, a quarter-million-square-foot stadium that would later host the Beatles’ first US concert. Ramrod-straight, square-jawed, and with a merciless, piercing gaze, Rockwell looked like a Hollywood villain straight out of central casting. (“How much taller he is than Hitler,” Esquire noted in an otherwise withering essay. “And how much better-looking.”) The Uline had nearly sold out. The Nazis were outnumbered 800 to one.

The fascists hadn’t come to make a bloody last stand. Instead, guards from the Fruit of Islam, the NOI’s paramilitary branch, frisked the men and ushered them to front-row-center seats. Their crisp brownshirt costumes and swastika armbands stood out against the suits and ties surrounding them. Despite the 90-degree heat, Rockwell and his men waited hours for the event’s main attraction. There is no record of anyone cracking a smile at the situation’s absurdity.

The night’s keynote speaker, NOI leader Elijah Muhammad, canceled his appearance because of illness. According to historian William Schmaltz, Malcolm X delivered a speech, followed by an appeal for donations that singled out the few Caucasians in the audience. Rockwell contributed $20. When Life photographer Eve Arnold raised her camera to capture the Nazis, Rockwellpresumably alerted to her Jewish ancestry by the Muslimsallegedly rasped, “I’ll make a bar of soap out of you.” (She replied, “As long as it isn’t a lampshade.”)

Overt anti-Semitism, it turned out, was something the two groups could bond over. While Rockwell pushed his hatred of Jews to frothy extremes, Muhammad backed a range of racist theories, including the hoax that the Jews had financed the slave trade. (Malcolm X was cagier about his anti-Semitism, often deferring to Muhammad’s conspiracy theories rather than offering his own.) To publicly rage against Jews in the summer of 1961 may have offended the general public even more than it would today. Six thousand miles away, the Adolf Eichmann trial, in Israel, had captivated the world and dramatically increased coverage of Holocaust atrocities.

Division of the races was another mutual bugbear. Malcolm X’s speech that night was titled “Separation or Death.” Inside the arena, Rockwell told reporters, “I am fully in concert with their program, and I have the highest respect for Elijah Muhammad.” The question of where to send America’s blacksthe NOI wanted a chunk of the US, while the ANP wanted a full deportation to Africawas, he said, his only quarrel with the Muslims.

This wasn’t quite true. The Nazis and NOI also disagreed over whether black people were human beings. Over the course of his three-year career as an open Nazi, Rockwell had repeatedly referred to African Americans as “ring-in-the-nose niggers,” “basically animalistic,” and “no better than chimpanzees.” With the alliance, he’d suddenly slapped a massive asterisk onto his own white supremacy.

Remarkably, the NOI had a history of such partnerships. Six months earlier, Muhammad had sent Malcolm X to a top-secret meeting with the Atlanta Ku Klux Klan. In a throwback to Marcus Garvey’s 1922 Klan summit, the two groups brokered a bizarre truce: local mosque safety in return for NOI support on racial separation.

But that meeting had served a purpose, no matter how tenuous. The alliance with the Nazis held no obvious benefit for the Muslims. The differences between Malcolm X and Rockwell were existential. Where the former had risen from a life of crime to national prominence, the latter had exerted himselfand destroyed his family and financesto become a national pariah, sinking from a decorated Navy officer to a delusional Nazi commander in just six years.

Overt anti-Semitism, it turned out, was something the two groups could bond over.

The Washington summit would have provided a bitter contrast to Rockwell’s normal, meager gatherings. An audience of 8,000 was something he could have only dreamed of. Even the building’s imposing vaulted ceiling hinted at the fascist architecture he saw as his inalienable destiny (throughout his career, he made repeated references to controlling the United States by 1972). For the Nazi leader, the alliance served a fantasy rooted in grandiose absurdism. “Can you imagine a rally of the American Nazis in Union Square,” Rockwell later wrote his followers, “protected from Jewish hecklers by a solid phalanx of Elijah Muhammad’s stalwart black stormtroopers?”

And where Malcolm X was famously complex, Rockwell self-identified as a cartoon character. With the media controlled by Jews, he’d reasoned, mainstream political protest from the extreme right was doomed to failure through obscurity.

“I tried and nobody paid attention to me,” he later told an interviewer of his pre-Nazi political activities. “But no one can ignore Nazis marching in the streets.”

Following this logic, the ANP produced a variety of merchandise catering to the juvenile bigot. One item, The Diary of Anne Fink (16 pages of Holocaust atrocity photos with jokey captions), was advertised in The Rockwell Report as “sick humor,” an odd allusion to Mad magazine, Lenny Bruce, and a world of Jewish, “degenerate” comedy that the Nazis should, logically, have railed against.

One result of this oafish marketing was that Rockwell recruited exceptionally inept personnel, attracting hordes of Nazis he admitted were “unbelievably stupid.” And yet he persisted in shooting for the lowest common denominator’s lowest common denominator. The ANP mocked the anti-segregation Freedom Riders with a VW van dubbed the “Hate Bus.” Some ANP picketers wore Groucho Marx glasses and rubber noses in their protests. Why would the famously disciplined NOI ally itself with such caricatures?

AMERICAN NAZI PARTY

The ANP was founded in 1959 by George Lincoln Rockwell in Arlington, Vriginia. Rockwell was assasinated eight years later by a former ANP member.

A possible answer came eight months later. On February 25, 1962, the ANP was invited to a second rally, this time the NOI’s Saviours’ Day convention in Chicago. Rockwell addressed the crowd after Muhammad. Facing an estimated 12,000 African Americans, the Nazi leader pulled no punches.

“You know that we call you ‘niggers.’ But wouldn’t you rather be confronted by honest white men who tell you to your face what the others all say behind your back?”

As a public speaker, Rockwell was entertaining without being particularly authoritative (in cadence, he mimicked comedian Red Skelton). His was not the voice of a fhrer, and the Chicago International Amphitheater wasn’t his Nuremberg Rally. Surely the irony of the moment wouldn’t have escaped him; this was the largest crowd he’d ever addressed (and would ever address again).

“I am not afraid to stand here and tell you I hate race-mixing and will fight it to the death,” Rockwell continued. “But at the same time, I will do everything in my power to help the Honorable Elijah Muhammad carry out his inspired plan for land of your own in Africa. Elijah Muhammad is right. Separation or death!” The audience teetered between polite applause and boos. Two months later, Muhammad, writing in the NOI newspaper, admonished his flock for their frosty reception: “If they are speaking the truth for us, what do we care? We’ll stand on our heads and applaud!”

This mutual nod to “honesty” and “truth” gives us a peek at the possible foundation of the alliance. Rockwell and Muhammad saw each other as authentic, as people willing to speak the truththeir versions of itno matter the cost. Their marketing to their constituencies depended on this image, and each man drew legitimacy from the appearance of being a straight shooter. Rockwell’s existence was useful to the NOI as a recruiting tool, his physical presence a testament to Muhammad’s own authenticity.

Malcolm X wasn’t part of this legitimacy trap, and he made it known that Rockwell’s high esteem wasn’t reciprocated. When the Nazi was applauded in 1961 for donating $20, Malcolm X laughed into the microphone and said, “You got the biggest hand you ever got, didn’t you, Mr. Rockwell?”

As the civil rights struggles of the 50s gave way to the triumphs of the early 60s, both men found themselves operating in the vast shadow of Martin Luther King Jr. The Nazis, challenged by the juggernaut of legislative triumphs following King’s actions, dug in. Malcolm X, faced with a growing gap between his NOI rhetoric and the successes of nonviolent action, softened his tone.

Rockwell and Muhammad saw each other as authentic, as people willing to speak the truththeir versions of itno matter the cost.

After leaving the NOI in 1964, Malcolm X used the movement’s alliance with the Klan as a charge against Muhammad. The following year, he sent a telegram to George Lincoln Rockwell:

This is to warn you that I am no longer held in check from fighting white supremacists by Elijah Muhammad’s separatist Black Muslim movement, and that if your present racist agitation against our people there in Alabama causes physical harm to Reverend King or any other black Americans who are only attempting to enjoy their rights as free human beings, that you and your Ku Klux Klan friends will be met with maximum physical retaliation…

Within three years, both men were dead, allegedly assassinated by former allies.

But the ghost of the alliance lives on today. The Nation of Islam, under the auspices of Louis Farrakhan, maintains an open partnership with white supremacist Tom Metzger. And in the last decade, the American Nazi Party website established a “Non-Aryan Sympathizer Page,” offering “a means for non-whites to aid in our struggle” with mail-in contributions.

Malcolm X’s posthumous alliance was stranger still: mainstream acceptance by the white-supremacist society he fought against in life. The US government eventually awarded him a postage stamp.

In an Angry and Fearful Nation, an Outbreak of Anti-Semitism – PQ Monthly

By A.C. Thompson and Ken Schwencke, ProPublica

In late November, Marna Street, a violist with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, was walking to her car after a rehearsal. Street was shocked by what she discovered: Someone had painted a swastika, about 14 inches across, on the trunk of her car.

The vandals, Street said, had probably targeted her vehicle, which was parked in a garage not far from the University of Cincinnati, because shed placed a magnet on it indicating that she is Jewish. Street eventually managed to scrub off the graffiti. She put the magnet in the glovebox of her car.

I had that feeling in the pit of my stomach, like somebody just punched me, recalled Street, 68, speaking publicly for the first time. It was, she said, a cross between fear and just plain hurt.

Working with a coalition of organizations, ProPublica late last year launched Documenting Hate, an attempt to gather evidence of hate crimes and episodes of bigotry from a divided America. The account from Cincinnati is one of the anti-Semitic incidents the project has chronicled. But there are scores more.

Indeed, Documenting Hate recorded more than 330 reports of anti-Semitic incidents during a three-month span from early November to early February. The accounts our list is by no means comprehensive come via personal submissions, police documents and news articles. The majority, though not all, have been authenticated through either news reports, interviews or other evidence, like photos.

The incidents have taken place in big cities and small towns, along the countrys liberal coasts and in deep red states. Some of the episodes swastikas and threatening messages spray-painted at schools and colleges around the nation have been worrisome, though relatively minor. Others have been more serious, such as the 65 bomb threats targeting Jewish organizations across the country during the period we examined (there have been nearly 70 more since then). In many cases, the culprits singled out specific individuals for abuse, defacing their homes and autos with swastikas and menacing comments.

In the first week of March President Trump, after weeks of criticism for being slow to condemn the incidents, called them horrible and painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil.

The remarks, however, came after a number of confounding comments about the issue. During a Feb. 16 news conference, Trump castigated Jake Turx, a reporter for Ami, a Jewish magazine, for asking what the government was doing to address the increase in anti-Semitic events. Trump accused Turx of lying about the question he wanted to ask, and instructed him to sit down. And without citing any evidence, Trump has wondered whether some of the recent anti-Semitic incidents were carried out by liberals, or Jews themselves, intent on discrediting him.

Theres a push on the left to conflate anti-Semitism with Trump, while at the same time criticizing him for having Jared Kushner, who wears his Jewishness as proudly as anyone, as his most trusted confidant and in the highest echelons of the White House staff, said Joe Borelli, a Trump supporter who represents Staten Island on the New York city council, according to Breitbart News. It is mind-boggling.

The White House would not comment for the record when asked whether President Trump had in any way contributed to the threats and violence.

In New York City, the police department said anti-Semitic hate crimes nearly doubled in the first two months of 2017 as compared to the same period last year.

On a national level, data on hate crimes and bias incidents is spotty at best. The FBI admits the information it collects is incomplete many police departments dont participate in the hate crimes tracking program and the bureau has yet to release statistics on 2016 and 2017. As a result, determining with authority whether anti-Semitic events are rising or declining is difficult.

There is little question, however, that the incidents have generated genuine concern. In a rare show of unity, all 100 U.S. senators this week issued a public letter urging the Department of Justice, FBI and Department of Homeland Security to protect Jewish institutions and prosecute those responsible for terrorizing them. In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently announced a $25 million grant to better protect daycare and community centers from threats.

The available data does support the idea of an uptick. After years of decline, anti-Semitic crimes began trending upward in 2015, according to FBI data. Experts say that increase seems to have accelerated in recent months, as Trumps unique brand of nativist populism has helped to pull more extreme right-wing groups, some of them avowedly racist, closer to the political mainstream. On Twitter, openly anti-Semitic figures have built vast networks of supporters and cultivated large audiences, while the Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website geared towards millennials, has seen its traffic grow to roughly a half a million unique visitors per month. In New York City, the police department said anti-Semitic hate crimes nearly doubled in the first two months of 2017 as compared to the same period last year.

One of the constituencies Trump mobilized was the KKK-style anti-Semitic extreme right, said Lawrence Rosenthal, a scholar of fascist history and director of the Center for Right-Wing Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. These groups had been absolutely on the fringe of American politics for at least my lifetime and I am getting old.

Oren Segal, who tracks anti-Semitic incidents in his role as director of the Anti-Defamation Leagues Center on Extremism, concurs. The anti-Semites think they have a champion in the highest office, said Segal, who believes that divisive rhetoric aired during last falls presidential campaign has emboldened racists [and anti-Semites] and inspired them to strike out at their perceived enemies in the Jewish community.

We have seen a significant uptick in the reports weve received, certainly starting around the election in November and continuing through the first two months of 2017, Segal told ProPublica.

Not everyone who has encountered Nazi imagery is Jewish many LGBTQ people, African Americans and others have also been targeted.

Amid the larger national debate about any responsibility Trump may bear for racist and anti-Semitic behavior, the accounts emerging from the Documenting Hate database offer a chance to appreciate the very personal experiences of violation and fear.

We identified:

ProPublicas review, which did not involve incidents occurring online, where anti-Semitic trolling and abuse have become widespread, uncovered many episodes which had never before been reported by the media or investigated by police.

Our tally is almost surely an undercount. It consists of incidents covered in media reports, as well as accounts gathered by the Southern Poverty Law Center and a coalition of news organizations including ProPublica, Univision News, Buzzfeed News and The New York Times Opinion section.

The reports we examined generally fall into two categories. Most appear to have been committed by angry individuals who arent affiliated with any organized group. They are often teens or adolescents who defame Jews and other minority groups through graffiti or verbal taunting. In some cases, the Nazi symbol was specifically aimed at non-Jewish minorities.

A smaller number were orchestrated by extremist political groups, such as the New Order, an outgrowth of the long-dormant American Nazi Party founded by George Lincoln Rockwell, and the Atomwaffen Division, a new, youthful fascist group. A handful of cases involved a saboteur who remotely hijacked computer printers at Stanford and other colleges, programming them to spit out page after page of neo-Nazi propaganda.

Some experts tracking this wave of incidents said it was crucial to situate them within a wider historical context.

Generally, weve seen a remarkable decline in anti-Semitism over the past 40 years, noted Jonathan Sarna, a history professor at Brandeis University and one of the foremost chroniclers of Jewish-American life. In the 1950s, we didnt just have bomb threats we had bombings. Synagogues in the south were bombed.

Sarna added, Its important to be vigilant and concerned. But its also important not to overreact.

Across the nation, Jews were directly harassed with hateful imagery and messages in dozens of instances we examined.

During Hanukkah last year, vandals desecrated a large home-made menorah that stood in the front yard of a home in Chandler, Arizona, twisting the sacred symbol into a swastika. Days after the presidential election, New York State Sen. Brad Hoylman found a swastika carved into the elevator door in his Manhattan apartment building and received a flyer in the mail saying that Jews would be punished for failing to convert to Christianity.

Not everyone who has encountered Nazi imagery is Jewish many LGBTQ people, African Americans and others have also been targeted.

On college campuses, much of the new anti-Semitism has been coming from organized groups of extremists out to intimidate or recruit new members.

In Cincinnati, Street, who is the principal violist emeritus with the symphony and a music teacher, said the graffiti on her car left her feeling very vulnerable. Her father and grandmother fled Nazi Germany for the safety of the U.S. in the 1940s.

Several weeks after Streets car was defaced, schools in her city began getting hit with anti-Semitic graffiti.

First, someone painted a large white swastika on a sign at Cincinnatis Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, the largest seminary for Reform Judaism in North America.

When the incident happened in early January, it was another psychic blow for Street. She worried about her friends who work at the college, and tried to understand the acts of ugliness taking place in her city. The crimes, she said, are not huge, but compounded they are very frightening.

Across the nation, similar graffiti appeared on the campuses of more than 35 other colleges during the three months examined by ProPublica.

Late on the night of Jan. 21, a mask-wearing vandal equipped with a spray can defaced Withrow University High School, a public school on Cincinnatis east side, painting Trump and swastikas all over the campus. The vandal, who tagged signs, sidewalks and buildings, also painted anti-gay and anti-black slurs.

Dozens of other schools were also tagged with anti-Semitic graffiti during the same time period.

At a high school in Newton, Massachusetts, somebody wrote Burn the Jews, white power, and Trump!!! on a bathroom stall. At Wilbur Cross High School in New Haven, Connecticut, red swastikas were spray-painted all over the athletic complex. In Murfreesboro, Tennessee, two teenage girls were expelled from Blackman High School for drawing a swastika in a bathroom stall.

Some people will say that the swastika vandalism is just being done by a bunch of kids and dismiss it as irrelevant. I think its the opposite. The fact that young kids are doing this is potentially the scariest part of it, said Segal of the Anti-Defamation League.

On college campuses, much of the new anti-Semitism has been coming from organized groups of extremists out to intimidate or recruit new members.

At the University of Washington, in Seattle, a pro-Trump student group calling itself the UW Wall Building Association flirted with Nazism in a public Facebook post suggesting that undocumented immigrants should be sent to concentration camps.

Neo-Nazis also crisscrossed the university campus at night, pasting up stark black-and-white posters threatening violence and uploading videos of their exploits to YouTube. One poster, featuring the deaths head, or Totenkopf insignia, used by the SS during World War II, promised to drive out the sodomites and degenerates of Seattle. Another poster encouraged students to join your local Nazis and visit the website IronMarch.com, a fascist web hang-out that encourages people to exterminate Jews and start a race war.

People are just shocked. We cant believe this is happening, said a graduate student who requested anonymity for fear of being harassed.

When the student saw the posters, she said she felt physically ill. I called my mom and was sobbing. I was so upset. My ancestors were slaughtered by the Nazis, said the student, who is Jewish.

The neo-fascist organization did not reply to a request for an interview about its activities.

White nationalist groups including Identity Evropa, led by a California man convicted of attacking an Arab cab driver at gunpoint, and True Cascadia, which aims to promote white ethnic consciousness in the Pacific Northwest, are also propagandizing at the school.

Segal has tracked 112 instances of white supremacist groups posting flyers on college campuses since September 2016.

Over the past several months, synagogues and other Jewish institutions have come under sustained harassment.

In December, somebody repeatedly hurled rocks through the windows of Temple Menorah-Keneseth Chai, a historic synagogue in Philadelphia. On the opposite side of the country, in Las Vegas, a young man in jeans and a pull-over sweatshirt scratched a swastika into a black marble column during Shabbat services at Chabad of Southern Nevada.

In other states, Christian churches ministering to LGBTQ people or to Latinxs have also been tagged with swastikas.

But it is the array of bomb threats directed at Jewish community centers that has captured the most media attention and generated the most concern.* Federal authorities on March 3 charged Juan Thompson, an erratic former journalist who once wrote for the Intercept website, with making threats to a small number of JCCs as well as other Jewish institutions.

But the figures responsible for the scores of threats to other JCCs remain at large. On March 7, another 17 locations of Jewish institutions in the U.S. received bomb threats.

Some faith leaders are urging President Trump to issue a stronger public condemnation of anti-Semitism before the problem worsens. We need him to say very forcefully, This is not acceptable and to follow up with action, said Rabbi Steven Fox, chief executive of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the nations most prominent rabbinical body.

Fox said Jewish community leaders have requested a meeting with the White House to discuss the surge in anti-Semitic activity, but, so far, have not been granted an audience with Trump or his advisors.

Within his denomination, Reform Judaism, there is great concern about this uptick in hate crimes, this increase in hate speech, Fox told ProPublica. In the last two years weve seen this real hatred for anybody thats different hatred for Muslims, hatred for the LGBTQ community. We see it as a deeply troubling trend, not just in America, but in the world.

New America Media is partnering with the Documenting Hate Project, a collaborative of media outlets, civil rights groups and tech companies nationwide working to document the rise of hate crimes and incidents of bias or harassment in the United States since the 2016 election.

An Outbreak of Anti-Semitism in an Angry and Fearful America Since Trump Election – FlaglerLive.com

The tip of a vile, familiar, tower. (Bogdan Migulski)

There is little question, however, that the incidents have generated genuine concern. In a rare show of unity, all 100 U.S. senators this week issued a public letter urging the Department of Justice, FBI and Department of Homeland Security to protect Jewish institutions and prosecute those responsible for terrorizing them. In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently announced a $25 million grant to better protect day care and community centers from threats.

The available data does support the idea of an uptick. After years of decline, anti-Semitic crimes began trending upward in 2015, according to FBI data. Experts say that increase seems to have accelerated in recent months, as Trumps unique brand of nativist populism has helped to pull more extreme right-wing groups, some of them avowedly racist, closer to the political mainstream. On Twitter, openly anti-Semitic figures have built vast networks of supporters and cultivated large audiences, while the Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website geared towards millennials, has seen its traffic grow to roughly a half a million unique visitors per month. In New York City, the police department said anti-Semitic hate crimes nearly doubled in the first two months of 2017 as compared to the same period last year.

One of the constituencies Trump mobilized was the KKK-style anti-Semitic extreme right, said Lawrence Rosenthal, a scholar of fascist history and director of the Center for Right-Wing Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. These groups had been absolutely on the fringe of American politics for at least my lifetime and I am getting old.

Oren Segal, who tracks anti-Semitic incidents in his role as director of the Anti-Defamation Leagues Center on Extremism, concurs. The anti-Semites think they have a champion in the highest office, said Segal, who believes that divisive rhetoric aired during last falls presidential campaign has emboldened racists and inspired them to strike out at their perceived enemies in the Jewish community.

We have seen a significant uptick in the reports weve received, certainly starting around the election in November and continuing through the first two months of 2017, Segal told ProPublica.

Amid the larger national debate about any responsibility Trump may bear for racist and anti-Semitic behavior, the accounts emerging from the Documenting Hate database offer a chance to appreciate the very personal experiences of violation and fear.

We identified:

ProPublicas review, which did not involve incidents occurring online, where anti-Semitic trolling and abuse have become widespread, uncovered many episodes which had never before been reported by the media or investigated by police.

Our tally is almost surely an undercount. It consists of incidents covered in media reports, as well as accounts gathered by the Southern Poverty Law Center and a coalition of news organizations including ProPublica, Univision News, Buzzfeed News and The New York Times Opinion section.

The reports we examined generally fall into two categories. Most appear to have been committed by angry individuals who arent affiliated with any organized group. They are often teens or adolescents who defame Jews and other minority groups through graffiti or verbal taunting. In some cases, the Nazi symbol was specifically aimed at non-Jews.

A smaller number were orchestrated by extremist political groups, such as the New Order, an outgrowth of the long-dormant American Nazi Party founded by George Lincoln Rockwell, and the Atomwaffen Division, a new, youthful fascist group. A handful of cases involved a saboteur who remotely hijacked computer printers at Stanford and other colleges, programming them to spit out page after page of neo-Nazi propaganda.

Some experts tracking this wave of incidents said it was crucial to situate them within a wider historical context.

Generally, weve seen a remarkable decline in anti-Semitism over the past 40 years, noted Jonathan Sarna, a history professor at Brandeis University and one of the foremost chroniclers of Jewish-American life. In the 1950s, we didnt just have bomb threats we had bombings. Synagogues in the south were bombed.

Sarna added: Its important to be vigilant and concerned. But its also important to not to overreact.

Across the nation, Jews were directly harassed with hateful imagery and messages in dozens of instances we examined.

During Hanukkah last year, vandals desecrated a large home-made menorah that stood in the front yard of a home in Chandler, Arizona, twisting the sacred symbol into a swastika. Days after the presidential election, New York State Sen. Brad Hoylman found a swastika carved into the elevator door in his Manhattan apartment building and received a flyer in the mail saying that Jews would be punished for failing to convert to Christianity.

Not everyone who has encountered Nazi imagery is Jewish gays, lesbians, African Americans and others have also been targeted.

Consider the story of Karen Schaeffer, who found a swastika and the word SCUM drawn on her front door in mid-November.

I was pretty scared, said Schaeffer, who lives in Wyandotte, Michigan, a small blue-collar town outside of Detroit. Im not even Jewish, but I am a pretty loud-mouthed liberal woman in a town that doesnt always appreciate that.

She has an idea about what drew the attention of the anti-Semites: a campaign sign in her window for Bernie Sanders, the Vermont senator who unsuccessfully ran against Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary.

Police came to Schaeffers house to investigate, but made no arrests.

In Cincinnati, Street, who is the principal violist emeritus with the symphony and a music teacher, said the graffiti on her car left her feeling very vulnerable. Her father and grandmother fled Nazi Germany for the safety of the U.S. in the 1940s.

Several weeks after Streets car was defaced, schools in her city began getting hit with anti-Semitic graffiti.

First, someone painted a large white swastika on a sign at Cincinnatis Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, the largest seminary for Reform Judaism in North America.

When the incident happened in early January, it was another psychic blow for Street. She worried about her friends who work at the college, and tried to understand the acts of ugliness taking place in her city. The crimes, she said, are not huge, but compounded they are very frightening.

Across the nation, similar graffiti appeared on the campuses of at more than 35 other colleges during the three months examined by ProPublica.

Late on the night of Jan. 21, a mask-wearing vandal equipped with a spray can defaced Withrow University High School, a public school on Cincinnatis east side, painting Trump and swastikas all over the campus. The vandal, who tagged signs, sidewalks and buildings, also painted anti-gay and anti-black slurs.

Dozens of other schools were also tagged with anti-Semitic graffiti during the same time period.

At a high school in Newton, Massachusetts, somebody wrote Burn the Jews, white power, and Trump!!! on a bathroom stall. At Wilbur Cross High School in New Haven, Connecticut, red swastikas were spray-painted all over the athletic complex. In Murfreesboro, Tennessee, two teenage girls were expelled from Blackman High School for drawing a swastika in a bathroom stall.

Some people will say that the swastika vandalism is just being done by a bunch of kids and dismiss it as irrelevant. I think its the opposite. The fact that young kids are doing this is potentially the scariest part of it, said Segal of the Anti-Defamation League.

On college campuses, much of the new anti-Semitism has been coming from organized groups of extremists out to intimidate or recruit new members.

At the University of Washington, in Seattle, a pro-Trump student group calling itself the UW Wall Building Association flirted with Nazism in a public Facebook post suggesting that undocumented immigrants should be sent to concentration camps.

Neo-Nazis also crisscrossed the university campus at night, pasting up stark black-and-white posters threatening violence and uploading videos of their exploits to YouTube. One poster, featuring the deaths head, or Totenkopf insignia, used by the SS during World War II, promised to Drive out the sodomites and degenerates of Seattle. Another poster encouraged students to join your local Nazis and visit the website IronMarch.com, a fascist web hang-out that encourages people to exterminate Jews and start a race war now.

People are just shocked. We cant believe this is happening, said a graduate student who requested anonymity for fear of being harassed.

When the student saw the posters, she said she felt physically ill. I called my mom and was sobbing. I was so upset. My ancestors were slaughtered by the Nazis, said the student, who is Jewish.

The neo-fascist organization did not reply to a request for an interview about its activities.

White nationalist groups including Identity Evropa, led by a California man convicted of attacking an Arab cab driver at gunpoint, and True Cascadia, which aims to promote White ethnic consciousness in the Pacific Northwest, are also propagandizing at the school.

Segal has tracked 112 instances of white supremacist groups posting flyers on college campuses since September 2016.

Over the past several months, synagogues and other Jewish institutions have come under sustained harassment.

In December, somebody repeatedly hurled rocks through the windows of Temple Menorah-Keneseth Chai, a historic synagogue in Philadelphia. On the opposite side of the country, in Las Vegas, a young man in jeans and a pull-over sweatshirt scratched a swastika into a black marble column during Shabbat services at Chabad of Southern Nevada.

In other states, Christian churches ministering to gays and lesbians or Latinos have also been tagged with swastikas.

But it is the array of bomb threats directed at Jewish community centers that has captured the most media attention and generated the most concern. Federal authorities on March 3 charged Juan Thompson, an erratic former journalist who once wrote for the Intercept website, with making threats to a small number of JCCs as well as other Jewish institutions.

But the figures responsible for the scores of threats to other JCCs remain at large. On March 7, another 17 locations of Jewish institutions in the U.S. received bomb threats.

Some faith leaders are urging President Trump to issue a stronger public condemnation of anti-Semitism before the problem worsens. We need him to say very forcefully, This is not acceptable and to follow up with action, said Rabbi Steven Fox, chief executive of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the nations most prominent rabbinical body.

Fox said Jewish community leaders have requested a meeting with the White House to discuss the surge in anti-Semitic activity, but, so far, have not been granted an audience with Trump or his advisors.

Within his denomination, Reform Judaism, there is great concern about this uptick in hate crimes, this increase in hate speech, Fox told ProPublica. In the last two years weve seen this real hatred for anybody thats different hatred for Muslims, hatred for the LGBTQ community. We see it as a deeply troubling trend, not just in America, but in the world.

‘Swastika war’: When the neo-Nazis fought in court to march in Skokie – Chicago Tribune

Four decades ago, a neo-Nazi group announced plans to march in Skokie, home to thousands of Holocaust survivors. The news set off a rhetorical firestorm that the Chicago Tribune dubbed the “Skokie swastika war.”

Then and now as the Jewish community sits on edge after a spate of bomb threats and vandalism at Jewish Community Centers, schools and cemeteries around the U.S. and Canada the Nazi symbol was embraced by anti-Semites.

A vandal who recently broke a window of the Chicago Loop Synagogue signed his malicious handiwork with swastika stickers. Headstones were marked with swastikas at desecrated Jewish cemeteries in the St. Louis area and Philadelphia.

In 1977, the swastika became the centerpiece of a constitutional question posed by a small group of neo-Nazis who called themselves “National Socialists” a callback to the formal name of Adolf Hitler’s political party. When the group encountered pushback over its plans to march through Skokie that spring while carrying flags bearing the swastika, its leader, Frank Collin, invoked the First Amendment as his defense.

In a January 1978 letter to the Tribune, months into a court battle over the group’s right to march, Collin explained: “By forcing the ‘free speech for National Socialism’ issue in Skokie we are fighting for our basic rights everywhere.”

The leader of Skokie’s Holocaust survivor community had asserted that the sight of a swastika would have a devastating effect on those who saw loved ones marched off to Nazi gas chambers. Sol Goldstein invoked a famed maxim of the late Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. about the limits of free speech.

“I also defend the (First) Amendment,” Goldstein told the Tribune. “But this is like calling, ‘Fire!’ in a crowded theater.”

Those positions were hotly argued and reargued in state and federal courtrooms until the U.S. Supreme Court resolved the issue. There were screaming matches between’s Collin’s handful of followers and protesters carrying signs that read, “Smash the Nazis” and “Never Again Treblinka,” a reference to a World War II extermination camp in Poland. Collin’s opponents founded a counter-organization, the Run The Nazis Out Coalition.

The bitter debate opened crevices in Chicago’s Jewish community. “My interest in the Nazis’ march is quite personal,” George Baum wrote in the Tribune in August 1977, recalling his liberation from the Theresienstadt concentration camp in the Czech Republic. “That day of rejoicing and sadness haunts the graveyard of my memories.”

About 15,000 children had passed through the camp. Baum was one of a hundred who survived. He explained his take on the proposed neo-Nazi march by quoting Alexander Hamilton: “Liberty may be endangered by the abuses of liberty as well as by the abuses of power.”

Jews are traditionally champions of free speech. They contribute generously to the American Civil Liberties Union, an organization that defends First Amendment rights on a nonpartisan basis. But when the Chicago chapter took on Frank Collin as a client, Jewish members were outraged. “I feel strongly that the principle of free speech must be defended,” a woman wrote in a letter to the ACLU that was quoted in a Tribune column. “But in this case, please let a non-Jew do the defending.”

A Jewish lawyer who served as a volunteer attorney for the ACLU resigned, the Tribune column went on. He wanted no part of an “organization that represents individuals whose ultimate goal is the destruction of us all.” Less than halfway through the 14-month controversy, the ACLU’s executive director told the Tribune the organization had lost between 700 and 1,000 members. “And the number is probably higher by now,” David Hamlin said.

But ACLU members weren’t the only ones whose Jewishness and politics were in conflict. “It is a mystery,” Collin’s grandmother said of his rabid anti-Semitism. Her son-in-law, Collin’s father, was Jewish.

Collin’s parents steadfastly refused to be interviewed. But by his grandmother’s account, her daughter, Virginia, and Max Collin lived “quietly in a Chicago suburb,” and Frank was the eldest of their four children. Virginia was Catholic, and Max was a German Jew who had survived the Dachau concentration camp in Germany. Coming to America, he changed his name from Cohen to Collin.

Frank Collin went to Catholic elementary and high schools and attended Southern Illinois University before dropping out.

Somewhere along the way, Frank Collin became infatuated with George Lincoln Rockwell, a white supremacist and self-proclaimed “commandant” of the American Nazi Party. Collin became the party’s Midwest director, a grandiose title considering that its membership nationally was estimated at a few hundred or less.

When Rockwell was assassinated in 1967 by a disaffected follower, Collin expected to be named his successor. But he was passed over.

Taking with him a few of Rockwell’s followers, Collin founded his own group, the National Socialist Party of America. He set up headquarters at 2519 W. 71st St., thinking he’d find a receptive audience on Chicago’s Southwest Side. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. had been assaulted there while campaigning in 1966 for open housing in what was then a predominantly white neighborhood.

Many residents were of Eastern European ancestry. They, too, had relatives who had suffered under Nazi occupation. So the sight of Nazi regalia was anathema, as Julian Kulas, a Ukrainian community leader, noted. “To dismiss the appearance of swastikas, brown shirts and jackboots on American soil a scant generation after (the Holocaust) betrays willful inattention to one of the most tragic episodes of human history,” Kulas wrote in a statement of solidarity with the Jewish community that was reported in the Tribune in June 1978.

While the court battles with Skokie waged on, and thinking a dramatic move would get the media’s attention, Collin planned a rally in Chicago’s Marquette Park, where King had been attacked. The symbolism was patent: Collin’s group promised to be a bulwark against the black residents of nearby neighborhoods.

A new confrontation between blacks and whites was the last thing Chicago’s leaders wanted. So the Chicago Park District put obstacles in Collin’s way. His group would have to post a $350,000 insurance bond. When the ACLU objected, saying that the amount was unreasonable, a federal judge reduced it to $60,000. At a second hearing, the judge found that, because Collin’s views were unpopular, brokers weren’t willing to write him an insurance policy, so he was given the right to march without posting a bond.

Collin won his courtroom battles almost in spite of himself. “He told me, in effect, to go to h-e-l-l,” a judge said after an especially testy session early in the fight. “He said, in effect, he doesn’t care what I do that he’s got other plans.”

But Collin did float his idea of a compromise. He wouldn’t march in Skokie if his group was allowed to hold a rally in Marquette Park. Once the bond requirement was lifted, the neo-Nazis marched twice in the park. Each time the police cut the demonstration short, in the face of counterdemonstrations. Rallies at the Daley and Kluczynski Federal Building plazas were marked by similar clashes.

So in the end it was something of an anti-climax when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Collin’s right of free speech extended to Skokie. “After bitter controversy, the courts cleared the Skokie march, but Collin called it off,” the Tribune noted July 8, 1978.

Collin disappeared from the political scene but not from the news. In 1980, he was convicted of sexually molesting young boys and sent to prison. After being released, he dabbled in paganism and new-age anthropology. He abandoned National Socialism for reasons as mysterious as those that brought him into the cult of Hitler.

As his grandmother had said: “We don’t know how or when it started.”

George Lincoln Rockwell Chapter 10 – The Facts of Race | Genius

1 If Black men are simply White men with dark skins, then it would be stupid and wicked bigotry to discriminate against Black men. 2 If there is NO OTHER difference between White men and Black men than skin color, if there are no differences of mind or character, then everything the liberals and race-mixers preach would be true. 3 Just as it would be insane and wicked to hate and discriminate against people with red hair, so it would be insanity and wickedness to discriminate against a man born with a dark skin – IF the dark skin is the ONLY difference. 4 There would be no excuse for not admitting Negroes at once to full equality with White men, including the complete right to marry and breed with our women, if they are really equal. 5 But if there ARE differences of mind and character between the Negro and White man, in addition to skin color, and if the Negro has a lower grade mind and major character defects as a whole race, then it is the height of wickedness and insanity to pollute our White Race with these low-grade traits of mind and character. 6 The Negro question is thus not a question of philosophy, but of fact. 7 If, as the Jews, Communists and egalitarian liberals contend, Negroes are the same as White people, except for skin color, then I am indeed a hate-monger, a bigot, and a wicked man for fighting race mixing as hard as we do. 8 But if the race of Negroes is, as a matter of FACT, INFERIOR, then it is the other way around and the liberals, Jews, Communists and egalitarians are the wicked poisoners of a million years of White evolution and breeding. 9 What are the facts? 10 Is it so hard to find out whether the Negro is, in fact, the same as a White Man, except for skin color? Are all the well-known Negro faults the result of “persecution” by Whites? 11 Will equal treatment result eventually in equal people? Or are most Negroes born inferior? 12 The FACTS alone can answer those questions. 13 Any White Man who has had to live among real Negroes promptly finds out that the myth about no difference except skin-color is a lie. 14 The “all-men-are-equal” baloney goes up in a puff of smoke whenever a group of genuine, live Negroes shows up and moves in close to White people. 15 In fact the belief in black “equality” is inversely proportional to the number of Blacks living in the area. The mathematical correlation is not “good;” it is perfect. 16 In areas such as Canada, where there are almost no Negroes, you will find that the myth of equality is so strong you can get beaten up for questioning it. 17 In areas where there are only a very few Negroes, the “equality” myth is still very strong, because, usually, where the Negroes are a very tiny minority, they are forced to act like White people and are often almost White themselves. Also, the rare Negroes present, in such areas, are usually highly selected, and highly trained because it is only the better specimens who had the ambition to emigrate to the new area, and who thus get more education. 18 But in areas where there are many Negroes, you will find that the White people do not believe the equality myth, no matter how much it is pushed on them. Just as you couldn’t sell the idea that skunks don’t stink wherever there are plenty of skunks, so you can’t peddle the “niggers-are-wonderful” lie wherever there are plenty of the colored “brothers” handy for folks to observe. 19 And in areas where there are more Black than White people, as in Mississippi, you will find tremendous resistance to the Blacks, and thorough understanding of the primitive savage and utterly different natures of these inferior specimens of humanity. 20 Unless this direct correlation of a low opinion of Negroes wherever there are many Negroes is the result of the inferiority of the Negroes themselves, you must conclude that somehow, almost all the people in South Africa are “bigots,” almost all the people of the U.S. South are “bigots,” and now, almost all the people who live in the big cities of the North are also “bigots.” 21 The same Northern cities which once believed the South was “bigoted” and mistreating the Negroes, now produce howling mobs of Whites hurling rocks and bottles whenever Blacks try to move into their neighborhoods These people could be swindled with the lie that Negroes are really Whites with dark skins only so long as they were not able to observe Negroes, experience Negroes, and suffer from Negroes. But as soon as large numbers of Negroes moved in, the Whites quickly learned the truth about them. 22 If anybody will put up the money for the experiment, I can prove that hatred of race mixing is not a “prejudice’ but the result of knowledge, by taking the most liberal and Negro-loving town in upper Ohio, for instance, or North Dakota, and buying up about half the homes in the town and filling them up with real, live, ordinary, garden-variety Negroes. In a few months, that town will be just as full of “bigots” and “nigger-haters” as any town in Mississippi. 23 And the reason will be, not that the White people are “prejudiced,” but that Negroes are simply biologically inferior. And the results of pretending otherwise can be seen wherever these pitiful black creatures abound. 24 Anybody who tries to live with skunks will become “bigoted” and “prejudiced” against skunks, and tell you that “‘skunks stink.” 25 And, without exception, anybody who is forced to live with masses of Negroes (not a few select Negro doctors or lawyers, but the real, black, average Negro) will quickly form the opinion that Negroes are a very low form of humanity, and we cannot mix with them without reverting to the jungle and the filth in which they live. 26 The only reason that so many people do not know that fact today (as all people once did), is because the same Jews who have provided us with Communism, Zionism, degeneracy and decay of Western Civilization, have methodically gone about the task of promoting the lie that Negroes are equal. They know it’s a lie, but they have promoted it consciously, precisely because, as we have previously shown, Jews, like ship-wreckers of old, flourish amidst chaos and ruin, and perish in a healthy society. Nothing so quickly deprives a society of its vigor as being mixed with Negroes. 27 Inevitably, when I point all this out to “intellectuals” in the colleges, they sneer back with a long list of Negro “achievers” who are statesmen, writers, geniuses, etc. They trot out Senator Edward Brooke, Adam Clayton Powell, William White, W. E. B. Dubois, Ralph Bunch, etc. 28 This is one of the trick arguments that looks good until you slow down and examine it critically. Then you will see that it is pure madness to judge “Negroes” by the likes of such “Negroes.” They are presenting a MIXTURE to try to prove the qualities of one INGREDIENT. Dynamite is made of sawdust and nitro-glycerin. So, in a sense, you could say that dynamite is “made out” of wood. 29 But would anybody be mad enough to contend, therefore, that wood is explosive? When two things are mixed, the resulting product cannot be used to prove the qualities of either single ingredient. 30 When we try to discuss the natural abilities of the NEGRO, the liberals, Reds and Jews instantly start pointing with pride to creatures which are anything but real Negroes – men who are almost always WHITE men with a small amount of Negro blood in them. 31 The usual examples in present day America are Adam Clayton Powell, who passed for White in college, and whose parents appear to be almost wholly White; Robert Weaver, housing czar; W. E. B. Dubois, who looked to be a White Man, with slightly Negroid features; the newly elected Senator Brooke, who is a White man with a bit of Negro blood; and dozens of others like them. 32 The only place you will find the black, heavily Negroid types in the public eye is in the fields where Negroes in Africa also excel: athletics, tom-tom beating, jungle chanting, etc. 33 In all the professions and upper echelons of accomplishments, WHENEVER YOU FIND AN INTELLECTUAL NEGRO you will find that he is almost always a WHITE man, with just enough colored blood to give the liberals something to vibrate about. 34 This is just as crazy as sprinkling some sawdust into nitro-glycerin to make dynamite, making it blow up with a bang – and then smirking that you have “proved” that wood is explosive. Dynamite is NOT wood, even though there is sawdust in it, and slightly soiled White Men with a little Negro blood are NOT “NEGROES” (in the biological sense.) 35 If you wish to know the properties of wood, you examine wood ALL BY ITSELF, the way it comes out of a tree. 36 If you wish to know the properties of the Negro, you must examine him ALL BY HIMSELF, the way he comes out of the Congo. 37 When we do this, we find not the sort of intelligence and ability found in a Senator Brooke but something far more akin to the African gorilla – something dark and terrible, something animal-like and primitive. 38 That is not “hate;” that is a FACT. 39 Liberals never tire of moaning that this obvious inferiority is only because of “lack of opportunity.” But they utterly ignore the fact that Africa is perhaps the richest continent on earth. 40 The only reason it remained savage was because there were no men there capable of seeing and understanding the possibilities. 41 Thomas Dixon, author of the book that became the greatest movie of all time, “The Birth of a Nation,” has put the matter more beautifully and clearly than I could hope to imitate; 42 “‘Can we assimilate the Negro? The very question is pollution. In Haiti no White man can own land. Black dukes and marquises drive over them and swear at them for getting under their wheels. Is civilization a patent cloak with which law-tinkers can wrap an animal and make him a king?’ 43 ‘But the Negro must be protected by the ballot,’ protested the statesman. ‘The humblest man must have the opportunity to rise. The real issue is Democracy.’ 44 ‘The issue, sir, is Civilization; Not whether a Negro shall be protected, but whether Society is worth saving from barbarism.’ 45 “The statesman can educate,’ put in the Commoner. 46 The doctor cleared his throat with a quick little nervous cough he was in the habit of giving when deeply moved. 47 `Education, sir, is the development of that which is. Since the dawn of history the Negro has owned the continent of Africa – rich beyond the dream of poet’s fancy, crunching acres of diamonds beneath his bare black feet. Yet he never picked one up from the dust until a White man showed to him its glittering light. His land swarmed with powerful and docile animals, yet he never dreamed a harness, cart, or sled. A hunter by necessity, he never made an axe, spear, or arrowhead worth preserving beyond the moment of its use. He lived as an ox, content to graze for an hour. In a land of stone and timber he never sawed a foot of lumber, carved a block, or built a house save of broken sticks and mud. With league on league of ocean strand and miles of in land seas, for four thousand years he watched their surface ripple under the wind, heard the thunder of the surf on his beach, the howl of the storm over his head, gazed on the dim blue horizon calling him to worlds that lie beyond, and yet he never dreamed a sail! He lived as his fathers lived – stole his food, worked his wife, sold his children, ate his brother, content to drink, sing, dance, and sport as the ape. And this creature, half child, half animal, the sport of impulse, whim, and conceit, “pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw,” a being who, left to his will, roams at night and sleeps in the day, whose speech knows no word of love, whose passions, once aroused, are as the fury of the tiger -they have set this thing to rule over the Southern people -‘” 48 Perhaps the most revealing and unanswerable study of racial differences between White and Black was made in Virginia by a Dr. Ferguson.1 49 Most studies seeking the answer to racial differences between Black and White are useless, because they totally ignore the White blood in many of the “Blacks” they test. 50 Ferguson took all the school children of Virginia, tested them all for intelligence, and then checked their racial backgrounds. 51 He divided them up into five racial groups. The first group was pure Black. The second group consisted of those having one White grandparent. The third group had two White grandparents, and the fourth group had three White grandparents. The fifth group, of course, was the pure Whites. 52 1. FERGUSON, G. 0., Jr. “The Psychology of the Negro” Arch. Of Psychology Number 36, April, 1916 53 The pure Blacks tested at least 40 percent below the pure Whites – (which is still the case today, in spite of all the money spent on education and pampering of the Blacks.) 54 Those “Negroes” with one White grandparent did slightly better than the pure Blacks; with two White grandparents, still better; with three White grandparents almost as good as the Whites themselves. 55 All of these Blacks lived as and considered themselves “Negroes.” Their environments and “advantages” or disadvantages were exactly the same. 56 Yet ability was exactly proportional to the amount of White blood! 57 The liberals and Jews make a million excuses for this astounding correlation. But the facts remain exactly the same to this day, even on the U.S. draft mental examinations, in which 56.1 percent of the Blacks still can’t pass the test, while only 15.4 percent of the Whites fail – even though the poverty and disadvantages of many of the Whites are as bad or worse than that of many Negroes. (SOURCE: Department of Labor, The Negro Family, March 1965, p. 75) 58 Those who insist that “lack of advantages” is what holds the Blacks back have an impossible task to explain what happened in Washington’s schools. 59 As long as the schools were white-run, and segregated, they were the best – even with only a fraction of the money and “advantages.” 60 Now that they are almost wholly Black since desegregation, in spite of more money than has ever been poured out anywhere else, they are the WORST! 61 Who did this, the White people? George Wallace? Hitler? Rockwell? 62 The answer which screams itself at all those who are not willfully deaf is that the Blacks simply lack the stuff to make good students. 63 Runners, jumpers, singers, drummers – and robbers and rapers – they surely are, and good ones. Students, executives, great creators, intellectuals, etc., pure Blacks are NOT – even though our liberal establishment and the Jews never tire of parading Negro inanities and trash as “literature” and “art.” 64 A recent NBC television documentary on the Igoe Housing Project in Saint Louis showed the full horror of what these ape-like people do when turned loose in modern civilization. The windows on the first four floors were smashed out from the outside by rocks. The windows on all the top floors were smashed out from the inside. The elevators are used so extensively for urinals, that the wiring is all shorted out, and the floors are rotted away. The halls stink of urine and feces, and the walls are covered with unspeakable obscenities. The light fixtures are all smashed, and in the dark halls and basement laundry rooms, the animalistic blacks rape and molest almost all the women, young and old, until the occupants are terrified. 65 Instead of realizing that all of this is not because of “deprivation,” but because of the nature of the beast, the U.S. Government is moving all the blacks out of one building at a time, putting in rock-proof screens on the outside of the windows on the first four floors, and on the inside of the others, putting in stone tiling in the elevators to make them more impervious to all the Negro urine, water-proofing the wires, putting in the kind of light fixtures they have in jails which can’t be smashed, repainting the walls with special paint so all the Negro vileness can be washed off every day or every few hours, and installing dozens of police to patrol the corridors. But even NBC admitted, “It may do no good.” The blacks will manage to wreck it somehow. 66 You can put fancy clothes on them, send them to Harvard, teach them to play the harp, teach them to work a computer, and even teach them to be a “Ph.D.” But they will still be like chimpanzees riding bicycles; they will do what they are trained and forced to do, but they cannot and never will do it all by themselves. The drive to civilize, organize, discipline and restrain themselves is lacking in the pure black. The trained “PhD” Negroes in colleges and in judges’ robes are artificial, not real; – they don’t rise to such abilities on their own racial heritage. 67 Let’s recall some basic facts about life that most men have forgotten. 68 Nobody has to teach a dog to bark. And a cat that never saw another cat knows how to meow. 69 The very nature of “dogness” impels a dog to bark rather than make some other kind of noise. The nature of “catness” impels the cat lo meow. 70 Perhaps this sort of observation seems like a waste of time. 71 Everybody knows these things. 72 Do they? 73 Sure they do, People know that dogs bark, cats meow, and they know that each kind of animal is born with its own kind of nature, feelings and responses to it environment. 74 Most people also realize that it is in the very nature of the breed of bulldogs to hold on with their teeth until death stops them, for pointers to point, for spaniels to take to the water, and for greyhounds to run fast. They know that if you want a dog with a nature which bites and hangs on, you don’t choose a greyhound but a bulldog, They know that if you want a dog who can and will run fast, you don’t want a bulldog but a greyhound. 75 In short, most people know that, while “all dogs are dogs,” different BREEDS of dogs have different NATURES. 76 Not only do dogs bark because they are dogs, but most folks know that certain breeds of dog have different NATURES and kinds of intelligence – because of their breed. 77 In fact, everybody knows that breeds are different in the whole animal world. 78 But they no longer know it about one animal – MAN. They have been so conditioned and twisted in their thinking about “man” that they have completely forgotten that man, too, is also an animal before he is a man, and that he is born with the particular nature of his particular BREED. Nobody in his right mind would judge each dog solely as an “individual.” Any person in his right mind knows that breed determines the basic nature of most of the dogs in that breed. A person looking for a tenacious dog which will bite and hang on, with a stubborn nature, would be wasting his time trying to find a dog among the breed of Chihuahuas or poodles, when he could quickly find a dog with such a nature among bulldogs – even though all of them are dogs. Nobody in his right mind would say, “all dogs are equal” or “all birds are equal.” 79 But Jews and liberals have taught most men that to look for any special characteristic among any certain breed of men is “bigotry” and “hate” 80 This utter madness may well be the one single error of modern man which will finish him off and send the planet spinning through the ether once again, silent and empty of men, as it once was for millions of years. 81 The record shows that there is only one breed of “man” which has, as a matter or history, produced “civilization.” 82 Just as a dog barks because he is a dog, a cat meows, and a bulldog hangs on, so one breed of “man,” the Aryan White Man, carries with him the nature that produces the justice, order and technology that we call “civilization.” 83 Wherever he has gone, the White Aryan has poured out of him the things we call “civilization” from inside, precisely the way a dog naturally produces barks and a cat produces meows. 84 This book is not and cannot be an anthropology text. It is designed to be a popular book, for the average American, and cannot get into complicated and difficult scientific areas. 85 However, the evidence that the Aryan White man, particularly the Nordic, is the author of “civilization,” as a matter of breed, is overwhelming, and must be known to our people if they are to survive. 86 Our people must also know that Negro inferiority has existed for hundreds of thousands of years. Everybody knows that there are some people who are naturally lazy and indolent, who prefer lying around like slugs in the sun. There are other people for who such utter uselessness and idleness is intolerable. Some people just have to be up and doing. They get restless and bored with more than a very little bit of “resting.” 87 Out of the original pool of humanity a million years ago, some were lazy, some were energetic. 88 The lazy and easy-going naturally stayed in the warm climates – the “Garden of Eden,” where you can lay around without getting too cold and where coconuts fall on you for food. These people bred more of their own lazy kind. Over the centuries and the thousands of years, these easy-going people stayed in the easy places to survive on the earth, inbred with each other, and produced races of easygoing, lazy people. 89 On the other hand, some energetic, vigorous, early humans began to move around and migrate over the face of the planet. Some of them arrived in the frozen, semi-arctic sections of Northern Europe. 90 To survive in such a bitter climate, men needed something more than the qualities of the easy-going people of the warm tropics. 91 In the storms and blizzards of a brutal winter, those humans who had not foreseen hard times, had not laid by stores for food, and had not built themselves shelters strong enough to withstand the battering of the northern gales, simply died and did not breed. 92 More importantly, selfish men could not survive in the cold North. Men had to be ready to help each other and be fair to each other to survive in the North. 93 In the warm climates, a man could survive with a minimum of foresight and with selfish disregard of others. His shelter could be of sticks and mud. His food supply was instantly available. He had no need for stores. He did not suffer if he lacked planning and foresight. He needed little help from other men. 94 But in the North, selfishness was a luxury man could not afford. Northern European man had to develop foresight and planning to survive the rigors of his environment. He had to learn to build substantial dwellings. He had to exercise and develop abstract mental powers to think in terms of the future not required in the tropics. Those who didn’t died, and their qualities died out with them. 95 A natural selection of men occurred when the energetic ones left the warm climates where man originated, leaving the lazy ones behind. 96 In the North, man had to think ahead to live. 97 The foresighted and unselfish people of the north then bred with each other to produce still more foresighted, resourceful and unselfish people, just as you can breed the qualities of aggressiveness and tenaciousness into the bulldog by inbreeding. 98 Over hundreds of thousands of years, being forced to think and plan ahead, being forced to help his neighbors, the people of the North bred a race of humans in whom the qualities of energy, thought, resourcefulness and unselfishness were paramount. 99 (It should be pointed out here that Eskimos, who do not exhibit these qualities so much, are relatively recent arrivals in the North, having been driven to the arctic wastes by better men who conquered them and drove them out of more moderate climates in Asia. On the other hand, the geological records show that the Nordic Northern European has inhabited his cold climate for many hundreds of thousands of years.) 100 The Northern climate thus selected and bred a race of people who had the ability to think ahead; to think in terms of, not the concrete realities of the present moment, but the intangible ideas and conceptions of the storms, difficulties and conditions they would have to deal with in the future.

Who was George Lincoln Rockwell? | News For The Blind

http://www.renegadetribune.com/george-lincoln-rockwell/ Ten thousand incensed Jews swarmed into New York Citys Central Park where the man they hated most planned to speak in the free forum area. The huge mob was swollen with overwrought people loudly screaming for his blood. They brandished lead pipes and pieces of broken pavement in the best Old Testament traditions of free speech. No one really expected him to show up in the face of such demented numbers, so the frothing Chosen turned the event into an anti-Nazi celebration. They clapped and sang Havanagila and performed round-dances in the street. But at the height of their vengeful hysteria, at the appointed time, a big man standing tall and alone in the very midst of the insane rabble threw off his long, concealing overcoat. As if by black magic, George Lincoln Rockwell appeared in full Stormtrooper uniform in the eye of an emotional hurricane, surrounded by enemies too stunned to move. Incredibly, he began to taunt them, deriding them to their camel-faces as cowards and fugitives from lunatic asylums. He had shown up, he said, at their request, so lets see how tough they really were. No one made a move against the formidable ex-U.S. Navy Commander. He strutted smiling among them, ridiculing their false promises to prevent his New York speech. It was a very personal confrontation between Aryan man and his Jewish opposites, between racial matter and anti-matter. An explosion was inevitable. Only by degrees did the Hebes belatedly psych themselves up to sufficient hysteria. In a convulsive, screaming lunge they fell on Commander Rockwell. But he had the psychological advantage of a larger-than life personal courage. In an utterly one-sided battle too incredible for anyone who has not actually witnessed or fought through such a moment, he bashed and throttled his way into the shrieking crowd. The grasping, spitting devils fell on all sides, as the lone hero of the White race cut a path of blood and broken bones across New York City. They never knocked him off his feet and he never tired of splitting enemy jaws. Alarmed and inspired by such Herculean bravery, a squad of policeman crashed into the howling throng swinging night sticks. Kosher casualties mounted rapidly, as the cops obviously relished their sport. They blazed a path of splattering gore to the ever-battling Rockwell, and escorted him over the blubbering bodies of fallen Jews. He emerged with only a few cuts and minor bruises. Even his uniform was in relatively good shape. George Lincoln Rockwell had come a long way from his birthplace in central Illinois, on March 9th, 1918. To be sure, his youth was far removed from the battlefields of New York City. He yearned to become a successful commercial artist, an ambition fulfilled when he won first prize in a national competition for the Cancer Foundation. But the Second World War changed his plans forever. Volunteering as a U.S. Navy pilot even before Americas official entry into the conflict, he was persuaded to believe with millions of other betrayed Americans that Adolf Hitler was getting ready to take over Coney Island and the Statue of Liberty. Decorated by wars end for combat duty against German U-boats, he re-enlisted for the Korean War, rising to the rank of Commander. While stationed in Iceland, he met and married a beautiful Nordic woman, with whom he raised a family in the 1950s. But since the end of World War Two, Rockwell had grown increasingly troubled by the deteriorating condition of Western Civilization, the antidote for which he finally discovered in Mein Kampf. Aware at last of his real destiny, he founded the American Nazi Party, fulfilling a prophesy the Fhrer made shortly before his death: The fight against the Jews will not be renewed first in Europe, but in the United States. Within twenty five years, the Americans will have begun to come to their senses about the Jewish Question. But in 1958, the American people were too complacent and self-satisfied for White Revolution. The nigger riots, economic chaos, cultural rot and Vietnam era treason of the 60s still lay before them. In spite of Gentile apathy, Rockwells activism blasted to their consciousness through the Paper Curtain, as he referred to the Jewish boycott in the newsmedia of all information about National Socialism. Years of unrewarding sacrifice finally bore fruit with Black demonstrations onto Midwestern White working class neighborhoods. Riding the crest of popular resentment against forced integration, Commander Rockwell addressed large assemblies of his fellow White Americans, who for the first time showered him with the gratitude he deserved. The Jews are Through in 72!, an often repeated slogan of the times, represented the high hopes then expressed for his bid for the presidency of the United States. Rockwells popularity near the close of the decade was such that he seemed bound to win the highest seat in the land someday. That, tragically, was also the consensus of the Jew System, and he was assassinated under circumstances still shrouded in mystery, in Arlington, Virginia. Destiny certainly chose the ideal man to represent the postwar National Socialist Movement. Six feet, four inches tall, ruggedly handsome, athletic, alert and quick-witted, he was the quintessential American folk-hero in the same mold, physically at any rate, as John Wayne or Clark Gable, with a similar charismatic appeal the American soul most responds to. Indeed to some observers, he resembled a cross between James Garner and Tyrannosaurus Rex, particularly when in combat. Yet, for all his dynamism, he was a doting father figure and an absolutely loyal friend. In the highest traditions of National Socialist leadership, he constantly hurled himself unhesitatingly among the enemy, who never failed to outnumber him. When the first Viet Cong flag was publicly paraded by a Yiddish Communist through the streets of Boston in 1956, Rockwell launched himself into the Marxist demonstration of traitors and fools to tear it down and go to jail for the kind of selfless patriotism no one else dared. As he said modestly of himself on such occasions, he was only trying to undo in a small way the damage he had done to National Socialism as a deceived American in World War Two. The enemies of the White race would like to pretend that George Lincoln Rockwell never existed. Certainly, they have done everything possible to expunge his name from American history. But their efforts continue to fail. His image and deeds are forever engraved in the hearts and memories of millions who lived through the turbulent decade of the Sixties. His writings and recorded spoken words continue to educate and inspire new generations of racial patriots. Much as we mourn his passing, even after twenty five years, we know he did not die before his time, as does no man. It is, after all, the fate of the greatest heroes not to die peacefully of old age, but to fall in their prime under the hatred of their enemies. Only in this manner may they live on forever in the folkish consciousness of our race. George Lincoln Rockwell made every living National Socialist and those yet unborn incomparably richer for his having lived. He single-handedly lifted our banner from the ashes of Berlin into the skies of America. He represented our Idea in so personable, professional and winning a fashion, he made us proud to be a part of his struggle. We are honored to accept his legacy. In his name, sanctified by the blood of self-sacrifice, we shall use it to the fullest advantage! A mans life is his noblest work. And if his work is carried on by those who survive him, he is not truly dead. Through us, Rockwell lives! George Lincoln Rockwells Works Like Loading…

Erick Werner: Never OK to use political violence – Santa Clarita Valley Signal

In 1941 the U.S. declared war on Nazi Germany. By 1945 that regime, and its adherents, had been wholly wiped away. It is interesting, then, that in 2017 the question has come up: Is it OK to punch a Nazi? The answer for many has been Yes, it certainly is OK. However, the fundamental issue with this logic falls in line with the fact that because there are no longer any real, official Nazis anymore, then simply applying that label to anyone you disagree with gives you carte blanche to use violence to silence that persons views. The topic itself came up when white nationalist and head of the National Policy Institute Richard Spencer was assaulted on Inauguration Day in Washington, D.C. While giving an on-the-street interview with ABC, a member of the Antifa black bloc ran up and sucker-punched Spencer. Now, for those unfamiliar with the group, Antifa stands for Anti-Fascist and is a group that has been operating as a far-left protest and riot organization that has grown considerably in the United States. A fair amount of the destruction caused in recent protests on college campuses has been due to the actions of Antifa. So when an Antifa member hit Richard Spencer, the conversation that ensued was not one of condemnation, but one in which people legitimately questioned whether the blow was socially acceptable. Organizations like the Guardian published videos advocating for this kind of behavior. The fact of the matter is that for a representative Jeffersonian democracy to work, political violence must be shunned at every level, no matter how ignorant or misguided an individuals views are. To be certain, I have disagreements with Richard Spencer and do not advocate his style of holistic identitarianism. However, if I met him in a crowd, I would much rather have a debate, rather than a fight. Richard Spencer aside, however, let us assume the position of the left that implicitly or explicitly justifies political violence if it is targeted at a Nazi. What in 2017 constitutes a Nazi? The SS has been a defunct organization since 1945, and even George Lincoln Rockwell has been dead since the late 1960s. How, then, would someone identify a modern Nazi? Critics might cite Neo-Nazis who come out of prison gangs, of course, but lets be honest with ourselves those guys arent the people who are in any threat of being targeting for political violence. They are not the individuals that Antifa and those supporting the group are advocating violence against. No, Antifa and the authoritarian left is decidedly bringing back the label Nazi as a way to justify violence against those they deem politically incorrect. The punching of Richard Spencer was just one of many assaults on supposed Fascists though certainly a well-documented one due to his prominence. Many dozens, if not hundreds, of other assaults have taken place at an alarming rate over the past year or so, and the trend does not seem to be letting up. Make no mistake, this is the degeneracy of the American political system, and it is being spurred on by turning something that was once a well-defined, and frankly archaic, political party into a catch-all for those deemed conservative or on the political right. These people do not want to listen and debate; they want to brutalize and punish. In a sense, they are forgoing their civic duty as it was visualized by our Founding Fathers. Every enfranchised person should, theoretically, be an informed advocate of his or her political opinions. These people are using the privilege of protest allotted by this country to silence opposition. As we continue to move forward, there will no doubt continue to be more such events. To save the American political process, we must unmask these Antifa rioters and hold accountable those who grant their implicit support. Only then will we be able to once more stand united and strong.

Give Trump the silent treatment – The Hill (blog)

Years ago, I was a lawyer for the American Jewish Congress, Commission on Law and Social Action in New York City. Im reminded now about one case that we handled that involved the Nazi spokesman George Lincoln Rockwell who sought the right to speak at a public park. Among others, Jewish groups protested. Why allow vile speech in public places, they claimed? I argued that we only brought attention to his stupid rants by making him a victim who would claim he was denied his First Amendment rights. The same thing is going on now in Berkeley, California where two outrageous speakers were rebuffed by liberals who dont want them to have a voice, so obnoxious to protesters. In all these instances, my view is the ACLU view, and a pragmatic one, at that. Only by protesting their rights to speak do we give these provocateurs the larger audience they never would have had if they were simply ignored. These examples bring me to the point that national media is being fooled by President Trump. During the debates, while Trump insulted the media, they sat there like props, and gave his insults the very audience he desired. Now, Trumps outrageous tweets are covered endlessly by media on both sides of the political spectrum. The media networks included havent learned their lesson from the election where Trump news sucked the air out of coverage of his competitors, Democratic and Republican. Trump insults the Pope, John McCainJohn McCainTop commander: Don’t bet on China reining in North Korea Trudeau, Trump speak for second night about US-Canada trade McCain: China has done nothing on North Korea MORE, his opponents, and the media itself which covers Trumps outrages ad nauseum, to the exclusion of reasonable other points of view. The same phenomenon continues to the present. Trump tweets and the media genuflects. Trump cares nothing about press criticism so long as he gets the coverage. He boasted to Associated Press that his ratings for press coverage is the highest since 9/11! Its a tremendous advantage, he instructed the media he publicly deplores. Bernie SandersBernie SandersNebraska Dem chair slams Perez for dismissing anti-abortion Dems Sanders: Trump couldn’t be ‘more wrong’ on climate Sanders on skipping WH Korea briefing: ‘I did not want to be part of a photo op’ MORE is now the most popular politician in America, according to, ironically, to a Fox News poll. But do you see the media covering his every move? His constructive politicking gets sparse coverage while Trump’s outrages are exhaustively covered, in protest and in admiration, but to the exclusion of his political opponents in his party and the opposition. One expects fawning coverage from his admirers at FOX; but Rachel, Wolf, Lawrence, et. al., you are keeping him in the news and that is his power. Look the other way when he rants to his followers, and like Rockwell, and Coulter and others who media popularized in the past, and they will be left only with their right to speak to their relatively few followers, and are denied the larger audience. Ronald Goldfarb is a Washington, DC attorney, literary agent and author of 13 books. The views expressed by contributors are their own and are not the views of The Hill.

Happy George Lincoln Rockwell Day Daily Stormer

Zeiger Daily Stormer March 9, 2017 Commander Rockwell: the original Nazi troll. Today, the 9th of March, is the 99th birthday of commander George Lincoln Rockwell, the founder of the American Nazi Party. This is a figure that everyone on the right should be familiar with, and draw inspiration from. While theres much to be learned from the lives of Hitler or Mussolini, they lived in a very different world than what we have today; their societies werent completely Jewed in the way America is. They still had strong men and national pride. In that sense, Rockwells life speaks to modern people much more directly than former great men who fought for Western civilization. He faced many of the same issues we face today, and fought the same forces that oppose us as well. For this occasion, Ive made a modern, readable version of his classic autobiography This Time, the World available to everyone. Download here. Cover by Alexander Slavros. This is a book I would actually recommend over Mein Kampf to anyone wanting to learn about the struggle. Rockwell did some incredible things in his day, including starting popular magazines, publishing comic books, meeting with high level government officials and military leaders, and even opening communications with black nationalists who desired to separate from White America. The American Nazi Party was the origin point for a lot of the movements and organizations that upheld the torch of radical nationalism in America. William Pierce of the National Alliance, Joseph Tomassi of the NSLF and James Mason of Universal Order were all members of Rockwells group at some point or other. His studies in marketing gave him a keen understanding of human psychology and the use of propaganda to affect the masses. He used this understanding to great effect, taking the American media by storm in much the same way that Nazi trolls are doing today. Its important to remember our roots and learn from our past heroes. So lets declare this George Lincoln Rockwell day!

When Malcolm X Met the Nazis – Vice

Members of the American Nazi Party listened to Malcolm X speak at a Nation of Islam rally in Washington, DC, on June 25, 1961. Contact sheet Eve Arnold/Magnum Photos On Sunday, June 25, 1961, ten members of the American Nazi Party arrived at a Nation of Islam rally in Washington, DC. The party’s founder, George Lincoln Rockwell, led them inside the Uline Arena, a quarter-million-square-foot stadium that would later host the Beatles’ first US concert. Ramrod-straight, square-jawed, and with a merciless, piercing gaze, Rockwell looked like a Hollywood villain straight out of central casting. (“How much taller he is than Hitler,” Esquire noted in an otherwise withering essay. “And how much better-looking.”) The Uline had nearly sold out. The Nazis were outnumbered 800 to one. The fascists hadn’t come to make a bloody last stand. Instead, guards from the Fruit of Islam, the NOI’s paramilitary branch, frisked the men and ushered them to front-row-center seats. Their crisp brownshirt costumes and swastika armbands stood out against the suits and ties surrounding them. Despite the 90-degree heat, Rockwell and his men waited hours for the event’s main attraction. There is no record of anyone cracking a smile at the situation’s absurdity. The night’s keynote speaker, NOI leader Elijah Muhammad, canceled his appearance because of illness. According to historian William Schmaltz, Malcolm X delivered a speech, followed by an appeal for donations that singled out the few Caucasians in the audience. Rockwell contributed $20. When Life photographer Eve Arnold raised her camera to capture the Nazis, Rockwellpresumably alerted to her Jewish ancestry by the Muslimsallegedly rasped, “I’ll make a bar of soap out of you.” (She replied, “As long as it isn’t a lampshade.”) Overt anti-Semitism, it turned out, was something the two groups could bond over. While Rockwell pushed his hatred of Jews to frothy extremes, Muhammad backed a range of racist theories, including the hoax that the Jews had financed the slave trade. (Malcolm X was cagier about his anti-Semitism, often deferring to Muhammad’s conspiracy theories rather than offering his own.) To publicly rage against Jews in the summer of 1961 may have offended the general public even more than it would today. Six thousand miles away, the Adolf Eichmann trial, in Israel, had captivated the world and dramatically increased coverage of Holocaust atrocities. Division of the races was another mutual bugbear. Malcolm X’s speech that night was titled “Separation or Death.” Inside the arena, Rockwell told reporters, “I am fully in concert with their program, and I have the highest respect for Elijah Muhammad.” The question of where to send America’s blacksthe NOI wanted a chunk of the US, while the ANP wanted a full deportation to Africawas, he said, his only quarrel with the Muslims. This wasn’t quite true. The Nazis and NOI also disagreed over whether black people were human beings. Over the course of his three-year career as an open Nazi, Rockwell had repeatedly referred to African Americans as “ring-in-the-nose niggers,” “basically animalistic,” and “no better than chimpanzees.” With the alliance, he’d suddenly slapped a massive asterisk onto his own white supremacy. Remarkably, the NOI had a history of such partnerships. Six months earlier, Muhammad had sent Malcolm X to a top-secret meeting with the Atlanta Ku Klux Klan. In a throwback to Marcus Garvey’s 1922 Klan summit, the two groups brokered a bizarre truce: local mosque safety in return for NOI support on racial separation. But that meeting had served a purpose, no matter how tenuous. The alliance with the Nazis held no obvious benefit for the Muslims. The differences between Malcolm X and Rockwell were existential. Where the former had risen from a life of crime to national prominence, the latter had exerted himselfand destroyed his family and financesto become a national pariah, sinking from a decorated Navy officer to a delusional Nazi commander in just six years. Overt anti-Semitism, it turned out, was something the two groups could bond over. The Washington summit would have provided a bitter contrast to Rockwell’s normal, meager gatherings. An audience of 8,000 was something he could have only dreamed of. Even the building’s imposing vaulted ceiling hinted at the fascist architecture he saw as his inalienable destiny (throughout his career, he made repeated references to controlling the United States by 1972). For the Nazi leader, the alliance served a fantasy rooted in grandiose absurdism. “Can you imagine a rally of the American Nazis in Union Square,” Rockwell later wrote his followers, “protected from Jewish hecklers by a solid phalanx of Elijah Muhammad’s stalwart black stormtroopers?” And where Malcolm X was famously complex, Rockwell self-identified as a cartoon character. With the media controlled by Jews, he’d reasoned, mainstream political protest from the extreme right was doomed to failure through obscurity. “I tried and nobody paid attention to me,” he later told an interviewer of his pre-Nazi political activities. “But no one can ignore Nazis marching in the streets.” Following this logic, the ANP produced a variety of merchandise catering to the juvenile bigot. One item, The Diary of Anne Fink (16 pages of Holocaust atrocity photos with jokey captions), was advertised in The Rockwell Report as “sick humor,” an odd allusion to Mad magazine, Lenny Bruce, and a world of Jewish, “degenerate” comedy that the Nazis should, logically, have railed against. One result of this oafish marketing was that Rockwell recruited exceptionally inept personnel, attracting hordes of Nazis he admitted were “unbelievably stupid.” And yet he persisted in shooting for the lowest common denominator’s lowest common denominator. The ANP mocked the anti-segregation Freedom Riders with a VW van dubbed the “Hate Bus.” Some ANP picketers wore Groucho Marx glasses and rubber noses in their protests. Why would the famously disciplined NOI ally itself with such caricatures? AMERICAN NAZI PARTY The ANP was founded in 1959 by George Lincoln Rockwell in Arlington, Vriginia. Rockwell was assasinated eight years later by a former ANP member. A possible answer came eight months later. On February 25, 1962, the ANP was invited to a second rally, this time the NOI’s Saviours’ Day convention in Chicago. Rockwell addressed the crowd after Muhammad. Facing an estimated 12,000 African Americans, the Nazi leader pulled no punches. “You know that we call you ‘niggers.’ But wouldn’t you rather be confronted by honest white men who tell you to your face what the others all say behind your back?” As a public speaker, Rockwell was entertaining without being particularly authoritative (in cadence, he mimicked comedian Red Skelton). His was not the voice of a fhrer, and the Chicago International Amphitheater wasn’t his Nuremberg Rally. Surely the irony of the moment wouldn’t have escaped him; this was the largest crowd he’d ever addressed (and would ever address again). “I am not afraid to stand here and tell you I hate race-mixing and will fight it to the death,” Rockwell continued. “But at the same time, I will do everything in my power to help the Honorable Elijah Muhammad carry out his inspired plan for land of your own in Africa. Elijah Muhammad is right. Separation or death!” The audience teetered between polite applause and boos. Two months later, Muhammad, writing in the NOI newspaper, admonished his flock for their frosty reception: “If they are speaking the truth for us, what do we care? We’ll stand on our heads and applaud!” This mutual nod to “honesty” and “truth” gives us a peek at the possible foundation of the alliance. Rockwell and Muhammad saw each other as authentic, as people willing to speak the truththeir versions of itno matter the cost. Their marketing to their constituencies depended on this image, and each man drew legitimacy from the appearance of being a straight shooter. Rockwell’s existence was useful to the NOI as a recruiting tool, his physical presence a testament to Muhammad’s own authenticity. Malcolm X wasn’t part of this legitimacy trap, and he made it known that Rockwell’s high esteem wasn’t reciprocated. When the Nazi was applauded in 1961 for donating $20, Malcolm X laughed into the microphone and said, “You got the biggest hand you ever got, didn’t you, Mr. Rockwell?” As the civil rights struggles of the 50s gave way to the triumphs of the early 60s, both men found themselves operating in the vast shadow of Martin Luther King Jr. The Nazis, challenged by the juggernaut of legislative triumphs following King’s actions, dug in. Malcolm X, faced with a growing gap between his NOI rhetoric and the successes of nonviolent action, softened his tone. Rockwell and Muhammad saw each other as authentic, as people willing to speak the truththeir versions of itno matter the cost. After leaving the NOI in 1964, Malcolm X used the movement’s alliance with the Klan as a charge against Muhammad. The following year, he sent a telegram to George Lincoln Rockwell: This is to warn you that I am no longer held in check from fighting white supremacists by Elijah Muhammad’s separatist Black Muslim movement, and that if your present racist agitation against our people there in Alabama causes physical harm to Reverend King or any other black Americans who are only attempting to enjoy their rights as free human beings, that you and your Ku Klux Klan friends will be met with maximum physical retaliation… Within three years, both men were dead, allegedly assassinated by former allies. But the ghost of the alliance lives on today. The Nation of Islam, under the auspices of Louis Farrakhan, maintains an open partnership with white supremacist Tom Metzger.

In an Angry and Fearful Nation, an Outbreak of Anti-Semitism – PQ Monthly

By A.C. Thompson and Ken Schwencke, ProPublica In late November, Marna Street, a violist with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, was walking to her car after a rehearsal. Street was shocked by what she discovered: Someone had painted a swastika, about 14 inches across, on the trunk of her car. The vandals, Street said, had probably targeted her vehicle, which was parked in a garage not far from the University of Cincinnati, because shed placed a magnet on it indicating that she is Jewish. Street eventually managed to scrub off the graffiti. She put the magnet in the glovebox of her car. I had that feeling in the pit of my stomach, like somebody just punched me, recalled Street, 68, speaking publicly for the first time. It was, she said, a cross between fear and just plain hurt. Working with a coalition of organizations, ProPublica late last year launched Documenting Hate, an attempt to gather evidence of hate crimes and episodes of bigotry from a divided America. The account from Cincinnati is one of the anti-Semitic incidents the project has chronicled. But there are scores more. Indeed, Documenting Hate recorded more than 330 reports of anti-Semitic incidents during a three-month span from early November to early February. The accounts our list is by no means comprehensive come via personal submissions, police documents and news articles. The majority, though not all, have been authenticated through either news reports, interviews or other evidence, like photos. The incidents have taken place in big cities and small towns, along the countrys liberal coasts and in deep red states. Some of the episodes swastikas and threatening messages spray-painted at schools and colleges around the nation have been worrisome, though relatively minor. Others have been more serious, such as the 65 bomb threats targeting Jewish organizations across the country during the period we examined (there have been nearly 70 more since then). In many cases, the culprits singled out specific individuals for abuse, defacing their homes and autos with swastikas and menacing comments. In the first week of March President Trump, after weeks of criticism for being slow to condemn the incidents, called them horrible and painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil. The remarks, however, came after a number of confounding comments about the issue. During a Feb. 16 news conference, Trump castigated Jake Turx, a reporter for Ami, a Jewish magazine, for asking what the government was doing to address the increase in anti-Semitic events. Trump accused Turx of lying about the question he wanted to ask, and instructed him to sit down. And without citing any evidence, Trump has wondered whether some of the recent anti-Semitic incidents were carried out by liberals, or Jews themselves, intent on discrediting him. Theres a push on the left to conflate anti-Semitism with Trump, while at the same time criticizing him for having Jared Kushner, who wears his Jewishness as proudly as anyone, as his most trusted confidant and in the highest echelons of the White House staff, said Joe Borelli, a Trump supporter who represents Staten Island on the New York city council, according to Breitbart News. It is mind-boggling. The White House would not comment for the record when asked whether President Trump had in any way contributed to the threats and violence. In New York City, the police department said anti-Semitic hate crimes nearly doubled in the first two months of 2017 as compared to the same period last year. On a national level, data on hate crimes and bias incidents is spotty at best. The FBI admits the information it collects is incomplete many police departments dont participate in the hate crimes tracking program and the bureau has yet to release statistics on 2016 and 2017. As a result, determining with authority whether anti-Semitic events are rising or declining is difficult. There is little question, however, that the incidents have generated genuine concern. In a rare show of unity, all 100 U.S. senators this week issued a public letter urging the Department of Justice, FBI and Department of Homeland Security to protect Jewish institutions and prosecute those responsible for terrorizing them. In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently announced a $25 million grant to better protect daycare and community centers from threats. The available data does support the idea of an uptick. After years of decline, anti-Semitic crimes began trending upward in 2015, according to FBI data. Experts say that increase seems to have accelerated in recent months, as Trumps unique brand of nativist populism has helped to pull more extreme right-wing groups, some of them avowedly racist, closer to the political mainstream. On Twitter, openly anti-Semitic figures have built vast networks of supporters and cultivated large audiences, while the Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website geared towards millennials, has seen its traffic grow to roughly a half a million unique visitors per month. In New York City, the police department said anti-Semitic hate crimes nearly doubled in the first two months of 2017 as compared to the same period last year. One of the constituencies Trump mobilized was the KKK-style anti-Semitic extreme right, said Lawrence Rosenthal, a scholar of fascist history and director of the Center for Right-Wing Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. These groups had been absolutely on the fringe of American politics for at least my lifetime and I am getting old. Oren Segal, who tracks anti-Semitic incidents in his role as director of the Anti-Defamation Leagues Center on Extremism, concurs. The anti-Semites think they have a champion in the highest office, said Segal, who believes that divisive rhetoric aired during last falls presidential campaign has emboldened racists [and anti-Semites] and inspired them to strike out at their perceived enemies in the Jewish community. We have seen a significant uptick in the reports weve received, certainly starting around the election in November and continuing through the first two months of 2017, Segal told ProPublica. Not everyone who has encountered Nazi imagery is Jewish many LGBTQ people, African Americans and others have also been targeted. Amid the larger national debate about any responsibility Trump may bear for racist and anti-Semitic behavior, the accounts emerging from the Documenting Hate database offer a chance to appreciate the very personal experiences of violation and fear. We identified: ProPublicas review, which did not involve incidents occurring online, where anti-Semitic trolling and abuse have become widespread, uncovered many episodes which had never before been reported by the media or investigated by police. Our tally is almost surely an undercount. It consists of incidents covered in media reports, as well as accounts gathered by the Southern Poverty Law Center and a coalition of news organizations including ProPublica, Univision News, Buzzfeed News and The New York Times Opinion section. The reports we examined generally fall into two categories. Most appear to have been committed by angry individuals who arent affiliated with any organized group. They are often teens or adolescents who defame Jews and other minority groups through graffiti or verbal taunting. In some cases, the Nazi symbol was specifically aimed at non-Jewish minorities. A smaller number were orchestrated by extremist political groups, such as the New Order, an outgrowth of the long-dormant American Nazi Party founded by George Lincoln Rockwell, and the Atomwaffen Division, a new, youthful fascist group. A handful of cases involved a saboteur who remotely hijacked computer printers at Stanford and other colleges, programming them to spit out page after page of neo-Nazi propaganda. Some experts tracking this wave of incidents said it was crucial to situate them within a wider historical context. Generally, weve seen a remarkable decline in anti-Semitism over the past 40 years, noted Jonathan Sarna, a history professor at Brandeis University and one of the foremost chroniclers of Jewish-American life. In the 1950s, we didnt just have bomb threats we had bombings. Synagogues in the south were bombed. Sarna added, Its important to be vigilant and concerned. But its also important not to overreact. Across the nation, Jews were directly harassed with hateful imagery and messages in dozens of instances we examined. During Hanukkah last year, vandals desecrated a large home-made menorah that stood in the front yard of a home in Chandler, Arizona, twisting the sacred symbol into a swastika. Days after the presidential election, New York State Sen. Brad Hoylman found a swastika carved into the elevator door in his Manhattan apartment building and received a flyer in the mail saying that Jews would be punished for failing to convert to Christianity. Not everyone who has encountered Nazi imagery is Jewish many LGBTQ people, African Americans and others have also been targeted. On college campuses, much of the new anti-Semitism has been coming from organized groups of extremists out to intimidate or recruit new members. In Cincinnati, Street, who is the principal violist emeritus with the symphony and a music teacher, said the graffiti on her car left her feeling very vulnerable. Her father and grandmother fled Nazi Germany for the safety of the U.S. in the 1940s. Several weeks after Streets car was defaced, schools in her city began getting hit with anti-Semitic graffiti. First, someone painted a large white swastika on a sign at Cincinnatis Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, the largest seminary for Reform Judaism in North America. When the incident happened in early January, it was another psychic blow for Street. She worried about her friends who work at the college, and tried to understand the acts of ugliness taking place in her city. The crimes, she said, are not huge, but compounded they are very frightening. Across the nation, similar graffiti appeared on the campuses of more than 35 other colleges during the three months examined by ProPublica. Late on the night of Jan. 21, a mask-wearing vandal equipped with a spray can defaced Withrow University High School, a public school on Cincinnatis east side, painting Trump and swastikas all over the campus. The vandal, who tagged signs, sidewalks and buildings, also painted anti-gay and anti-black slurs. Dozens of other schools were also tagged with anti-Semitic graffiti during the same time period. At a high school in Newton, Massachusetts, somebody wrote Burn the Jews, white power, and Trump!!! on a bathroom stall. At Wilbur Cross High School in New Haven, Connecticut, red swastikas were spray-painted all over the athletic complex. In Murfreesboro, Tennessee, two teenage girls were expelled from Blackman High School for drawing a swastika in a bathroom stall. Some people will say that the swastika vandalism is just being done by a bunch of kids and dismiss it as irrelevant. I think its the opposite. The fact that young kids are doing this is potentially the scariest part of it, said Segal of the Anti-Defamation League. On college campuses, much of the new anti-Semitism has been coming from organized groups of extremists out to intimidate or recruit new members. At the University of Washington, in Seattle, a pro-Trump student group calling itself the UW Wall Building Association flirted with Nazism in a public Facebook post suggesting that undocumented immigrants should be sent to concentration camps. Neo-Nazis also crisscrossed the university campus at night, pasting up stark black-and-white posters threatening violence and uploading videos of their exploits to YouTube. One poster, featuring the deaths head, or Totenkopf insignia, used by the SS during World War II, promised to drive out the sodomites and degenerates of Seattle. Another poster encouraged students to join your local Nazis and visit the website IronMarch.com, a fascist web hang-out that encourages people to exterminate Jews and start a race war. People are just shocked. We cant believe this is happening, said a graduate student who requested anonymity for fear of being harassed. When the student saw the posters, she said she felt physically ill. I called my mom and was sobbing. I was so upset. My ancestors were slaughtered by the Nazis, said the student, who is Jewish. The neo-fascist organization did not reply to a request for an interview about its activities. White nationalist groups including Identity Evropa, led by a California man convicted of attacking an Arab cab driver at gunpoint, and True Cascadia, which aims to promote white ethnic consciousness in the Pacific Northwest, are also propagandizing at the school. Segal has tracked 112 instances of white supremacist groups posting flyers on college campuses since September 2016. Over the past several months, synagogues and other Jewish institutions have come under sustained harassment. In December, somebody repeatedly hurled rocks through the windows of Temple Menorah-Keneseth Chai, a historic synagogue in Philadelphia. On the opposite side of the country, in Las Vegas, a young man in jeans and a pull-over sweatshirt scratched a swastika into a black marble column during Shabbat services at Chabad of Southern Nevada. In other states, Christian churches ministering to LGBTQ people or to Latinxs have also been tagged with swastikas. But it is the array of bomb threats directed at Jewish community centers that has captured the most media attention and generated the most concern.* Federal authorities on March 3 charged Juan Thompson, an erratic former journalist who once wrote for the Intercept website, with making threats to a small number of JCCs as well as other Jewish institutions. But the figures responsible for the scores of threats to other JCCs remain at large. On March 7, another 17 locations of Jewish institutions in the U.S. received bomb threats. Some faith leaders are urging President Trump to issue a stronger public condemnation of anti-Semitism before the problem worsens. We need him to say very forcefully, This is not acceptable and to follow up with action, said Rabbi Steven Fox, chief executive of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the nations most prominent rabbinical body. Fox said Jewish community leaders have requested a meeting with the White House to discuss the surge in anti-Semitic activity, but, so far, have not been granted an audience with Trump or his advisors. Within his denomination, Reform Judaism, there is great concern about this uptick in hate crimes, this increase in hate speech, Fox told ProPublica. In the last two years weve seen this real hatred for anybody thats different hatred for Muslims, hatred for the LGBTQ community. We see it as a deeply troubling trend, not just in America, but in the world. New America Media is partnering with the Documenting Hate Project, a collaborative of media outlets, civil rights groups and tech companies nationwide working to document the rise of hate crimes and incidents of bias or harassment in the United States since the 2016 election. *Note from the PQ Editor: This article does not discuss the significance of race in the disparity between media attention dedicated to threats against the Jewish community and media attention given to threats against the Black, Latinx, Muslim, and non-white immigrant and refugee communities.

An Outbreak of Anti-Semitism in an Angry and Fearful America Since Trump Election – FlaglerLive.com

I was pretty scared, said Schaeffer, who lives in Wyandotte, Michigan, a small blue-collar town outside of Detroit. Im not even Jewish, but I am a pretty loud-mouthed liberal woman in a town that doesnt always appreciate that. She has an idea about what drew the attention of the anti-Semites: a campaign sign in her window for Bernie Sanders, the Vermont senator who unsuccessfully ran against Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary. Police came to Schaeffers house to investigate, but made no arrests.

‘Swastika war’: When the neo-Nazis fought in court to march in Skokie – Chicago Tribune

Four decades ago, a neo-Nazi group announced plans to march in Skokie, home to thousands of Holocaust survivors. The news set off a rhetorical firestorm that the Chicago Tribune dubbed the “Skokie swastika war.” Then and now as the Jewish community sits on edge after a spate of bomb threats and vandalism at Jewish Community Centers, schools and cemeteries around the U.S. and Canada the Nazi symbol was embraced by anti-Semites. A vandal who recently broke a window of the Chicago Loop Synagogue signed his malicious handiwork with swastika stickers. Headstones were marked with swastikas at desecrated Jewish cemeteries in the St. Louis area and Philadelphia. In 1977, the swastika became the centerpiece of a constitutional question posed by a small group of neo-Nazis who called themselves “National Socialists” a callback to the formal name of Adolf Hitler’s political party. When the group encountered pushback over its plans to march through Skokie that spring while carrying flags bearing the swastika, its leader, Frank Collin, invoked the First Amendment as his defense. In a January 1978 letter to the Tribune, months into a court battle over the group’s right to march, Collin explained: “By forcing the ‘free speech for National Socialism’ issue in Skokie we are fighting for our basic rights everywhere.” The leader of Skokie’s Holocaust survivor community had asserted that the sight of a swastika would have a devastating effect on those who saw loved ones marched off to Nazi gas chambers. Sol Goldstein invoked a famed maxim of the late Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. about the limits of free speech. “I also defend the (First) Amendment,” Goldstein told the Tribune. “But this is like calling, ‘Fire!’ in a crowded theater.” Those positions were hotly argued and reargued in state and federal courtrooms until the U.S. Supreme Court resolved the issue. There were screaming matches between’s Collin’s handful of followers and protesters carrying signs that read, “Smash the Nazis” and “Never Again Treblinka,” a reference to a World War II extermination camp in Poland. Collin’s opponents founded a counter-organization, the Run The Nazis Out Coalition. The bitter debate opened crevices in Chicago’s Jewish community. “My interest in the Nazis’ march is quite personal,” George Baum wrote in the Tribune in August 1977, recalling his liberation from the Theresienstadt concentration camp in the Czech Republic. “That day of rejoicing and sadness haunts the graveyard of my memories.” About 15,000 children had passed through the camp. Baum was one of a hundred who survived. He explained his take on the proposed neo-Nazi march by quoting Alexander Hamilton: “Liberty may be endangered by the abuses of liberty as well as by the abuses of power.” Jews are traditionally champions of free speech. They contribute generously to the American Civil Liberties Union, an organization that defends First Amendment rights on a nonpartisan basis. But when the Chicago chapter took on Frank Collin as a client, Jewish members were outraged. “I feel strongly that the principle of free speech must be defended,” a woman wrote in a letter to the ACLU that was quoted in a Tribune column. “But in this case, please let a non-Jew do the defending.” A Jewish lawyer who served as a volunteer attorney for the ACLU resigned, the Tribune column went on. He wanted no part of an “organization that represents individuals whose ultimate goal is the destruction of us all.” Less than halfway through the 14-month controversy, the ACLU’s executive director told the Tribune the organization had lost between 700 and 1,000 members. “And the number is probably higher by now,” David Hamlin said. But ACLU members weren’t the only ones whose Jewishness and politics were in conflict. “It is a mystery,” Collin’s grandmother said of his rabid anti-Semitism. Her son-in-law, Collin’s father, was Jewish. Collin’s parents steadfastly refused to be interviewed. But by his grandmother’s account, her daughter, Virginia, and Max Collin lived “quietly in a Chicago suburb,” and Frank was the eldest of their four children. Virginia was Catholic, and Max was a German Jew who had survived the Dachau concentration camp in Germany. Coming to America, he changed his name from Cohen to Collin. Frank Collin went to Catholic elementary and high schools and attended Southern Illinois University before dropping out. Somewhere along the way, Frank Collin became infatuated with George Lincoln Rockwell, a white supremacist and self-proclaimed “commandant” of the American Nazi Party. Collin became the party’s Midwest director, a grandiose title considering that its membership nationally was estimated at a few hundred or less. When Rockwell was assassinated in 1967 by a disaffected follower, Collin expected to be named his successor. But he was passed over. Taking with him a few of Rockwell’s followers, Collin founded his own group, the National Socialist Party of America. He set up headquarters at 2519 W. 71st St., thinking he’d find a receptive audience on Chicago’s Southwest Side. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. had been assaulted there while campaigning in 1966 for open housing in what was then a predominantly white neighborhood. Many residents were of Eastern European ancestry. They, too, had relatives who had suffered under Nazi occupation. So the sight of Nazi regalia was anathema, as Julian Kulas, a Ukrainian community leader, noted. “To dismiss the appearance of swastikas, brown shirts and jackboots on American soil a scant generation after (the Holocaust) betrays willful inattention to one of the most tragic episodes of human history,” Kulas wrote in a statement of solidarity with the Jewish community that was reported in the Tribune in June 1978. While the court battles with Skokie waged on, and thinking a dramatic move would get the media’s attention, Collin planned a rally in Chicago’s Marquette Park, where King had been attacked. The symbolism was patent: Collin’s group promised to be a bulwark against the black residents of nearby neighborhoods. A new confrontation between blacks and whites was the last thing Chicago’s leaders wanted. So the Chicago Park District put obstacles in Collin’s way. His group would have to post a $350,000 insurance bond. When the ACLU objected, saying that the amount was unreasonable, a federal judge reduced it to $60,000. At a second hearing, the judge found that, because Collin’s views were unpopular, brokers weren’t willing to write him an insurance policy, so he was given the right to march without posting a bond. Collin won his courtroom battles almost in spite of himself. “He told me, in effect, to go to h-e-l-l,” a judge said after an especially testy session early in the fight. “He said, in effect, he doesn’t care what I do that he’s got other plans.” But Collin did float his idea of a compromise. He wouldn’t march in Skokie if his group was allowed to hold a rally in Marquette Park. Once the bond requirement was lifted, the neo-Nazis marched twice in the park. Each time the police cut the demonstration short, in the face of counterdemonstrations. Rallies at the Daley and Kluczynski Federal Building plazas were marked by similar clashes. So in the end it was something of an anti-climax when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Collin’s right of free speech extended to Skokie. “After bitter controversy, the courts cleared the Skokie march, but Collin called it off,” the Tribune noted July 8, 1978. Collin disappeared from the political scene but not from the news. In 1980, he was convicted of sexually molesting young boys and sent to prison. After being released, he dabbled in paganism and new-age anthropology. He abandoned National Socialism for reasons as mysterious as those that brought him into the cult of Hitler. As his grandmother had said: “We don’t know how or when it started.” rgrossman@chicagotribune.com Related articles: Germany’s Nazi past, and the right-wingers who want to hide it The anti-Semitism of writer’s youth comes back to haunt him When we witness anti-Semitism, our response matters Jewish group again cites anti-Semitism from Trump administration

"Notwithstanding the provisions of section 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phono-records or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.

In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include:

  • (1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for or nonprofit educational purposes,
  • (2) the nature of the copyrighted work,
  • (3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole, and
