American Nazi Party – Wikipedia

The American Nazi Party (ANP) was first an American political party founded by George Lincoln Rockwell. Its headquarters were in Arlington, Virginia. Rockwell founded the organization as the World Union of Free Enterprise National Socialists (WUFENS), but renamed it the American Nazi Party in 1960.[2] The party was based largely upon the ideals and policies of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party in Germany during the Nazi era, and embraced its uniforms and iconography.[3][A]

The Rockwell organization broke up shortly after he was assassinated in 1967. Since the late 1960s, there have been a number of small groups that have used the name, “American Nazi Party”.

The WUFENS headquarters was located in a residence on Williamsburg Boulevard in Arlington, but was moved as the ANP headquarters to a house at 928 North Randolph Street (now a hotel and office building site). Rockwell and some party members also established a “Stormtrooper Barracks” in an old mansion owned by the widow of Willis Kern[7] in the Dominion Hills section of Arlington at what is now the Upton Hill Regional Park, the tallest hill in the county. After Rockwell’s death, the headquarters was moved again to one side of a duplex brick and concrete storefront at 2507 North Franklin Road which featured a swastika prominently mounted above the front door. This site was visible from busy Wilson Boulevard. Today, the Franklin Road address is often misidentified as Rockwell’s headquarters when in fact it was the successor organization’s last physical address in Arlington (now a coffeehouse).[8][9][10]

Under Rockwell, the party embraced Nazi uniforms and iconography. [B]

After several years of living in impoverished conditions, Rockwell began to experience some financial success with paid speaking engagements at universities where he was invited to express his controversial views as exercises in free speech. This inspired him to end the rancorous “Phase One” party tactics and begin “Phase Two”, a plan to recast the group as a legitimate political party by toning down the verbal and written attacks against non-whites, replacing the party rallying cry of “Sieg Heil!” with “White Power!”, limiting public display of the swastika, and entering candidates in local elections. On January 1, 1967, Rockwell renamed the ANP the National Socialist White People’s Party (NSWPP), a move that alienated some hard-line members.

In 1966, it was renamed the National Socialist White Peoples Party, a conscious imitation of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Rockwell wanted a more ecumenical approach and felt that the swastika banner was impeding organizational growth. Matt Koehl, although a purist National Socialist, succeeded Rockwell as the new leader and this ended the American Nazi Party. Rockwell was assassinated by one of his own members. Thereafter, the members engaged in internecine disputes, and they were either expelled by Koehl or they resigned. After the assassination of Rockwell, the party dissipated and ad hoc organizations usurped the American Nazi Party logo. Those included James Burford in Chicago and John Bishop in Iowa.[11]

The years 1966 and 1967 were in many ways the apogee of Rockwell’s fame and organization.[11] Famously, he was interviewed by Playboy magazine, an event that stirred controversy within the ranks.[11][12] At the time Rockwell had about 500 followers.[4]

Before he could fully implement party reforms, Rockwell was assassinated on August 25, 1967 by a disgruntled follower, John Patler, who was part of a splinter group.[4]

An assassination attempt was made on Rockwell on June 28, 1967. As Rockwell returned from shopping, he drove into the long driveway of the “Stormtrooper barracks” located in Arlington’s Dominion Hills subdivision and found it blocked by a felled tree and brush. Rockwell assumed that it was another prank by local teens. As a party member cleared the obstruction, two shots were fired at Rockwell from behind one of the swastika-embossed brick driveway pillars. One of the shots ricocheted off the car, right next to his head. Leaping from the car, Rockwell pursued the gunman. On June 30, Rockwell petitioned the Arlington County Circuit Court for a gun permit; no action was ever taken on his request.

On August 25, 1967, while leaving the Econowash laundromat at the Dominion Hills Shopping Center, an assassin, hiding on the roof of the building, fired two bullets into Rockwell’s car through the windshield. One missed, the other hit his chest and ruptured his heart. His car slowly rolled backwards to a stop and Rockwell staggered out of the front passenger side door of the car, stood briefly while pointing upward at the strip mall’s rooftop where the shots had come from, and then collapsed on the pavement. He was pronounced dead at the scene.[7][13] Rockwell’s assailant was John Patler, a former ANP/NSWPP member whom Rockwell had ejected from the party for allegedly trying to introduce Marxist doctrine into the party’s platforms.

Rockwell’s deputy commander, Matt Koehl, a staunch Hitlerist, assumed the leadership role after a party council agreed that he should retain command. Koehl continued some of Rockwells reforms such as emphasizing the prospect of a future all-white society, and toning down public denigration of non-whites. Koehl retained the swastika-festooned party literature and the pseudo-Nazi uniforms of the party’s “Storm Troopers” which were modeled on those worn by the Nazi Party’s Sturmabteilung. In 1968, Koehl moved the party to a new headquarters on 2507 North Franklin Road, clearly visible from Arlington’s main thoroughfare, Wilson Boulevard. He also established a printing press, a “George Lincoln Rockwell Memorial Book Store”, and member living quarters on property nearby.[citation needed]

The party began to experience ideological divisions among its followers as it entered the 1970s. In 1970, member Frank Collin, who was himself secretly the son of a Jewish father, broke away from the group and founded the National Socialist Party of America in Chicago, which became famous for its attempt to march through Skokie, Illinois, home to many Holocaust survivors. This led to the United States Supreme Court case, National Socialist Party of America v. Village of Skokie. Other dissatisfied members of the NSWPP chose to support William Luther Pierce, and formed the National Alliance in 1974.[citation needed]

Further membership erosion occurred as Koehl, drawing heavily upon the teachings of Hitlerian mystic Savitri Devi, began to suggest that National Socialism was more akin to a religious movement than a political one. He espoused the belief that Adolf Hitler was the gift of an inscrutable divine providence sent to rescue the white race from decadence and gradual extinction caused by a declining birth rate and miscegenation. Hitler’s death in 1945 was viewed as a type of martyrdom; a voluntary, Christ-like self-sacrifice, that looked forward to a spiritual resurrection of National Socialism at a later date when the Aryan race would need it the most. These esoteric beliefs led to disputes with the World Union of National Socialists, which Rockwell had founded and whose leader, Danish neo-Nazi Povl Riis-Knudsen, had been appointed by Koehl. Undaunted, Koehl continued to recast the party as a new religion in formation. Public rallies were gradually phased out in favor of low-key gatherings in private venues. On Labor Day 1979, in a highly unpopular move for some members, Koehl disbanded the party’s paramilitary “Storm Troopers”.[citation needed]

The Koehl organization is now known as the New Order and it operates so far from the public spotlight that few of today’s neo-Nazis are aware of its existence or know that it is the linear descendant of Rockwell’s original ANP.[citation needed]

On November 3, 1979, some members of the NSWPP and a Ku Klux Klan group attacked a Communist Workers’ Party protest march in Greensboro, North Carolina. The alliance of neo-Nazis and Klansmen shot and killed five marchers. Forty Klansmen and neo-Nazis were involved in the shootings with sixteen Klansmen and neo-Nazis being arrested. The six strongest cases were brought to trial first, but the two criminal trials resulted in the acquittal of the defendants by all-white juries. However, in a 1985 civil lawsuit, the survivors won a $350,000 judgment against the city, the Klansmen, and the neo-Nazis for violating the civil rights of the demonstrators. The shootings became known as the “Greensboro Massacre”.[citation needed]

Since the late 1960s, there have been a number of small groups that have used the name “American Nazi Party”.

Thursday Bird Droppings: Where the Orioles are cutting some … – Camden Chat

Hello, friends.

There are now 25 days remaining until Orioles Opening Day. This number is currently in use by Hyun Soo Kim, and in the past was used by a lot of Orioles, including Rafael Palmeiro, Rich Dauer, and Moe Drabowsky.

The Orioles are continuing to pare down their spring roster, sending out a few players at a time who were obviously never going to make the big league club out of spring training. I mean, let’s get serious here. Jason Garcia wasn’t going to be on the MLB squad even if he was perfect every time out there – which he wasn’t. He looked like the same old Jason Garcia. And this year he’ll get to be that same Garcia at Norfolk instead of Bowie.

Today happens to be an off day for the Orioles, so there will be nothing happening, not even a fake game. During yesterday’s MASN broadcast, they claimed that the facilities would be locked up and no one could even get into the weight room on their day off. I don’t know about that, but it’s what they said.

On the bright side, if you want to watch some Orioles playing baseball today, you will still get a chance to do so. The Dominican Republic’s first game in the WBC is getting underway tonight at 6pm on MLB Network. You’ll be able to watch Manny Machado and Welington Castillo in action against Canada.

Orioles continue first round of camp cuts, including Jason Garcia, Parker Bridwell – Baltimore Sun It was going to be a strange set of circumstances that might lead to Bridwell making the Opening Day roster, too. And sure enough, he’s off to minor league camp for the balance of spring.

Dariel lvarez agrees to start pitching program (and more notes) – School of Roch It seems that Alvarez realized the writing was on the wall after being included in the very first round of cuts and so now he is going to try to undergo the reliever conversion. Well, good luck.

The ongoing tale of three once highly ranked O’s prospects – Steve Melewski One thing happening in this article is that Melewski is offering the claim that Christian Walker and Dariel Alvarez were once highly ranked O’s prospects, which is not a claim that has much support in observable reality.

Jonah Keri’s spring training tour: Projection smashing Orioles defying the odds – CBSSports.com Keri is one of the many baseball pundits who doesn’t seem to know what to make of the Orioles, although he tries harder than most in an effort to understand them.

Baltimore Orioles star Manny Machado made father proud by picking Dominican Republic (ESPN) There may have been a very, very similar article to this in yesterday’s Bird Droppings. ESPN, you were a day late to this party! So was the Sun, it seems.

Jonathan Schoop recalls first taste of Classic | MLB.com Schoop was still a minor leaguer the last time the WBC came around. Now he’s heading into his fourth big league season as he participates in this year’s edition.

One lone former Oriole has a birthday today: 2011 LOOGY Clay Rapada.

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! Your birthday buddies for today include: explorer Amerigo Vespucci (1454), Stanford University founder Amasa Leland Stanford (1824), space pioneer Yuri Gagarin (1934), actor Oscar Isaac (1979), and rapper Bow Bow (1987). Not really a big day for birthdays. Well, you’ve also got George Lincoln Rockwell, the founder of the American Nazi Party (1918).

In 1847, American forces launched the first-ever large-scale amphibious assault in the country’s history, landing for the Siege of Veracruz during the Mexican-American War.

In 1933, President Franklin B. Roosevelt submitted the Emergency Banking Act to Congress. This was the first of his New Deal programs.

In 1959, the Barbie doll debuted at the American International Toy Fair in New York.

In 1982, a group known as the Krononauts held an event in Baltimore in which they invited any future time travelers to come and meet one another.

**

And that’s the way it is in Birdland on March 9 – or at least, unless something happens later, which, since it’s an off day, hopefully it won’t. Have a safe Thursday.

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

Twitter Facebook Email

ProPublicas Documenting Hate project recorded more than 330 reports of anti-Semitic incidents during a three-month span, from early November to early February.

ProPublicas Documenting Hate project recorded more than 330 reports of anti-Semitic incidents during a three-month span, from early November to early February.

by A.C. Thompson and Ken Schwencke ProPublica, March 8, 2017, 5:36 p.m.

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 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.

A timeline of bomb threats against Jewish Community Centers and other organizations See the graphic.

President Trump, after weeks of criticism for being slow to condemn the incidents, last week 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.

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 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.

Hate crimes and bias incidents are a national problem, but theres no reliable data on their nature or prevalence. Were collecting reports to create a national database for use by journalists and civil-rights organizations. See the project.

The vandalizing of a Jewish graveyard in St. Louis becomes a very personal entry in our Documenting Hate database. Read the story.

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.

A.C. Thompson covers criminal justice issues for ProPublica. He has been a reporter for 12 years, mostly in the San Francisco Bay area.

9781684183265: Collected Works – AbeBooks – George Lincoln …

The essays contained in this book were written and published during the lifetime of George Lincoln Rockwell. Together with his two books, This Time the World and White Power, they accurately represent the worldview of one of America’s most enigmatic postwar political figures–a man who literally leapt into national prominence out of nowhere by being the first American to openly declare himself to be a National Socialist.

Some of the essays contained in this collection, such as the Fable of the Ducks and the Hens, were written before Rockwell launched his American Nazi Party in 1958, but all were reproduced once again during his lifetime in party publications or leaflets.

This volume also contains the full text of former ANP ideological officer and later leader of the National Alliance, Dr. William Pierce’s tribute to Rockwell, written after the latter’s death.

Finally, a fully comprehensive timeline of Lincoln Rockwell is included to provide the reader with a chronological sequence of his major life events.

Some of the essays contained in this collection, such as the Fable of the Ducks and the Hens, were written before Rockwell launched his American Nazi Party in 1958, but all were reproduced once again during his lifetime in party publications or leaflets.

This volume also contains the full text of former ANP ideological officer and later leader of the National Alliance, Dr. William Pierce’s tribute to Rockwell, written after the latter’s death.

Finally, a fully comprehensive timeline of Lincoln Rockwell is included to provide the reader with a chronological sequence of his major life events.

There are claims that Lincoln Rockwell wrote three other essays, which have been given titles such as “How to Get out and Stay out of the Insane Asylum,” “The Bible on Sharp Jewish Methods” and “Nightmare.” All three of these pieces are not independent essays but in fact extracts from Rockwell’s two books, This Time the World and White Power. As such, they are not included in this collection.

“synopsis” may belong to another edition of this title.

How Free Is Free Speech? – The Santa Barbara Independent – Santa Barbara Independent

Those who do not support free speech for those they despise do not support free speech at all. NoamChomsky

A scheduled appearance by controversial self-described radical anti-Christian feminist Mila Ziannopolous at UC Berkeley was canceled when campus police were unable to quell demonstrators bent upon blocking her appearance. Student demonstrators were joined by 100-150 ninja-clad members of an Oakland-based anti-Communist brigade who smashed windows and set fires. Stephen Jones, one of the leaders of the conservative student protesters, stated, I believe in free speech, but purveyors of hate speech have no right to speak on this campus or anywhereelse.

This incident followed cancellation of an appearance by Ziannapolous at UC Davis two weeks ago due to threats of violence. She had been invited by campus Democrats who emphasized that they did not necessarily agree with her views but felt she had a right to express them. For the First Amendment to have real meaning, Sheila Jackson, president of the campus Democrats stated, it must be extended to those whose views many may find offensive. A writer for a radical left website, Ziannapolous has asserted that all males, by virtue of their gender dominance, are complicit in a rape culture and that Christianity is a religion that subjugates women andminorities.

On the same day as the UC Berkeley riot, a performance by an outspoken liberal comedian at New York University was ended when conservative students stormed the auditorium and pepper-sprayed him. In 2014 a conservative pro-life professor at UC Santa Barbara harassed a pro-choice demonstrator and seized her sign. Other incidents in which liberal speakers have been blocked from appearing on college campuses have occurred in recent years. Conservative students have claimed that offensive views held by these speakers about race, religion, and gender violate their right to a safezone.

Of course, the stories above are fake news of my creation. I flipped the script of events that have occurred recently on college campuses involving incendiary conservative speakers. But if conservative students did engage in the suppression of speech described. students on the left surely would be invoking Voltaire, John Milton, John Stuart Mill, and Martin Luther King in a robust defense of free expression and with justification. Thus it is dismaying to me as a liberal that so many students and, even more disturbingly, so many faculty members on university campuses appear unclear on the concept of free expression when it applies to those they strongly disagree with. Also dismaying is the silence of the many on the left who do understand the concept but decline to speak out in defense of freespeech.

Brietbart writer Milo Yiannopolous, whose appearances were blocked at Davis and Berkeley, is a provocateur, whose stock and trade is baiting the left. He is a gay man who feels gays should stay in the closet. He ridicules the transgendered and immigrants. He accuses feminists of wallowing in victimhood and calls the rape culture a fantasy. Yiannopolous also went too far when he condoned pedophilia in a 2013 video, recently released, which got him disinvited as a speaker at a CPAC conference and ended up with his resignation from Breitbart onTuesday.

Those of us old enough to remember the 60s recall that provocateurs on the left like Eldridge Cleaver, a convicted rapist whose views on race were condemned by many civil rights leaders, were not merely tolerated but frequently welcomed on college campuses precisely because they were controversial. Those who objected to inviting such figures were dismissed with What part of Voltaire dont you understand? and rightly so. Even George Lincoln Rockwell, then leader of the American Nazi Party, was allowed to speak at UCSB in 1966. He was picketed by protesters, an exercise in their First Amendment rights, but there was no organized effort to block hisappearance.

Since that period, a view has taken root on college campuses that freedom of speech can be applied selectively and that some students and faculty members can appoint themselves guardians of what is permissible speech. The arbitrary result: Yiannapoulos encountered mass resistance while Louis Farrakhan, with a deserved reputation as an anti-Semite and misogynist, spoke at Berkeley in 2012 without getting the Black Bloctreatment.

Some who have participated in efforts to block not just outspoken conservatives but even speakers like Madeleine Albright and Laura Bush (!) among many others, have advanced the Orwellian argument that prohibiting speech is, in fact, an act of free speech (Newspeak: Suppression of speech equals freedom of speech). A number of demonstrators even condoned the storm trooper tactics of the Black Bloc anarchists who assaulted supporters of Yiannapolous at Berkeley. Yvette Felarca, a leader of the group Any Means Necessary, declared, Everyone cheered. Everyone was there with us in political agreement of the necessity of shutting it down, whatever it was going totake.

Anyone who is invited by a student group to speak at a public university has an absolute right to do so under the First Amendment. This right is not conditional or situational or debatable. Advocacy of any idea in the abstract is protected; only that narrow range of speech directly linked to specific illegal activity can be prohibited under the Constitution. The Supreme Court has ruled that even hate speech is protected and for good reason. There is no consensus on where the line is between offensive or controversial speech and hate speech. Empowering any entity to draw that line creates a dangerous slippery slope. The antidote to hate speech, as the American Civil Liberties Union has long argued, is not suppression of speech, but morespeech.

In a class on the First Amendment, Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean of the UC Irvine Law School. and an ACLU liberal in the best tradition, is addressing this declining understanding in academia of what free speech means. He notes that the views of students on this subject evolve during the course as they are exposed to the history of speech and repression. They learn that the same arguments currently being used to rationalize suppression of speech have been used for centuries, often to repress movements on the left. They learn that whenever a group has asserted itself as an arbiter of permissible speech, it has abused thatpower.

The Free Speech Movement that emerged on the Berkeley campus in 1964 rejected the notion that college administrators had the right to restrict political advocacy. The irony now is that it is administrators who are resisting calls by students and faculty to restrict speech. Recent UC presidents are to be lauded for a full- throated defense of all types of advocacy, whether by a Farrakhan or a Yiannopolous. Preserving the free marketplace of ideas is an existential priority for academia. Sadly, survival of that free marketplace may require that students and faculty consider taking RemedialVoltaire.

In 1962, 55 years ago, I lived in Charlottesville, Virginia. My brother attended the University of Virginia, ThomasJefferson’s university. I attended many UVA functions.

Although the school had integrated, I do not remember any black students. Nor were there any women, except for those in the nursing program. Students wore coats and ties to class.

It was before most colleges and universities became as liberal as they are today. The university sponsored a speakers program, and I was able to secure tickets and attend four of the talks. Martin Luther King spoke that year, as did a member of the Ku Klux Klan (whose name, thankfully, I do not remember). I also heard George Lincoln Rockwell, the leader of the Nazi Party in the United States,and Gus Hall, who was chairman of the Communist Party in the United States from 1952 until his death in 2000.

There were questions from the audience after the presentations. Everyone in attendance was respectful. All the questions were reasonable, as were the responses. There was no large police presence that I recall. There were no riots, no destruction of property either before or after the talks. At the close of the presentations there was polite applause, more for some speakers, less for others.

American Nazi Party – Wikipedia

The American Nazi Party (ANP) was first an American political party founded by George Lincoln Rockwell. Its headquarters were in Arlington, Virginia. Rockwell founded the organization as the World Union of Free Enterprise National Socialists (WUFENS), but renamed it the American Nazi Party in 1960.[2] The party was based largely upon the ideals and policies of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party in Germany during the Nazi era, and embraced its uniforms and iconography.[3][A] The Rockwell organization broke up shortly after he was assassinated in 1967. Since the late 1960s, there have been a number of small groups that have used the name, “American Nazi Party”. The WUFENS headquarters was located in a residence on Williamsburg Boulevard in Arlington, but was moved as the ANP headquarters to a house at 928 North Randolph Street (now a hotel and office building site). Rockwell and some party members also established a “Stormtrooper Barracks” in an old mansion owned by the widow of Willis Kern[7] in the Dominion Hills section of Arlington at what is now the Upton Hill Regional Park, the tallest hill in the county. After Rockwell’s death, the headquarters was moved again to one side of a duplex brick and concrete storefront at 2507 North Franklin Road which featured a swastika prominently mounted above the front door. This site was visible from busy Wilson Boulevard. Today, the Franklin Road address is often misidentified as Rockwell’s headquarters when in fact it was the successor organization’s last physical address in Arlington (now a coffeehouse).[8][9][10] Under Rockwell, the party embraced Nazi uniforms and iconography. [B] After several years of living in impoverished conditions, Rockwell began to experience some financial success with paid speaking engagements at universities where he was invited to express his controversial views as exercises in free speech. This inspired him to end the rancorous “Phase One” party tactics and begin “Phase Two”, a plan to recast the group as a legitimate political party by toning down the verbal and written attacks against non-whites, replacing the party rallying cry of “Sieg Heil!” with “White Power!”, limiting public display of the swastika, and entering candidates in local elections. On January 1, 1967, Rockwell renamed the ANP the National Socialist White People’s Party (NSWPP), a move that alienated some hard-line members. In 1966, it was renamed the National Socialist White Peoples Party, a conscious imitation of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Rockwell wanted a more ecumenical approach and felt that the swastika banner was impeding organizational growth. Matt Koehl, although a purist National Socialist, succeeded Rockwell as the new leader and this ended the American Nazi Party. Rockwell was assassinated by one of his own members. Thereafter, the members engaged in internecine disputes, and they were either expelled by Koehl or they resigned. After the assassination of Rockwell, the party dissipated and ad hoc organizations usurped the American Nazi Party logo. Those included James Burford in Chicago and John Bishop in Iowa.[11] The years 1966 and 1967 were in many ways the apogee of Rockwell’s fame and organization.[11] Famously, he was interviewed by Playboy magazine, an event that stirred controversy within the ranks.[11][12] At the time Rockwell had about 500 followers.[4] Before he could fully implement party reforms, Rockwell was assassinated on August 25, 1967 by a disgruntled follower, John Patler, who was part of a splinter group.[4] An assassination attempt was made on Rockwell on June 28, 1967. As Rockwell returned from shopping, he drove into the long driveway of the “Stormtrooper barracks” located in Arlington’s Dominion Hills subdivision and found it blocked by a felled tree and brush. Rockwell assumed that it was another prank by local teens. As a party member cleared the obstruction, two shots were fired at Rockwell from behind one of the swastika-embossed brick driveway pillars. One of the shots ricocheted off the car, right next to his head. Leaping from the car, Rockwell pursued the gunman. On June 30, Rockwell petitioned the Arlington County Circuit Court for a gun permit; no action was ever taken on his request. On August 25, 1967, while leaving the Econowash laundromat at the Dominion Hills Shopping Center, an assassin, hiding on the roof of the building, fired two bullets into Rockwell’s car through the windshield. One missed, the other hit his chest and ruptured his heart. His car slowly rolled backwards to a stop and Rockwell staggered out of the front passenger side door of the car, stood briefly while pointing upward at the strip mall’s rooftop where the shots had come from, and then collapsed on the pavement. He was pronounced dead at the scene.[7][13] Rockwell’s assailant was John Patler, a former ANP/NSWPP member whom Rockwell had ejected from the party for allegedly trying to introduce Marxist doctrine into the party’s platforms. Rockwell’s deputy commander, Matt Koehl, a staunch Hitlerist, assumed the leadership role after a party council agreed that he should retain command. Koehl continued some of Rockwells reforms such as emphasizing the prospect of a future all-white society, and toning down public denigration of non-whites. Koehl retained the swastika-festooned party literature and the pseudo-Nazi uniforms of the party’s “Storm Troopers” which were modeled on those worn by the Nazi Party’s Sturmabteilung. In 1968, Koehl moved the party to a new headquarters on 2507 North Franklin Road, clearly visible from Arlington’s main thoroughfare, Wilson Boulevard. He also established a printing press, a “George Lincoln Rockwell Memorial Book Store”, and member living quarters on property nearby.[citation needed] The party began to experience ideological divisions among its followers as it entered the 1970s. In 1970, member Frank Collin, who was himself secretly the son of a Jewish father, broke away from the group and founded the National Socialist Party of America in Chicago, which became famous for its attempt to march through Skokie, Illinois, home to many Holocaust survivors. This led to the United States Supreme Court case, National Socialist Party of America v. Village of Skokie. Other dissatisfied members of the NSWPP chose to support William Luther Pierce, and formed the National Alliance in 1974.[citation needed] Further membership erosion occurred as Koehl, drawing heavily upon the teachings of Hitlerian mystic Savitri Devi, began to suggest that National Socialism was more akin to a religious movement than a political one. He espoused the belief that Adolf Hitler was the gift of an inscrutable divine providence sent to rescue the white race from decadence and gradual extinction caused by a declining birth rate and miscegenation. Hitler’s death in 1945 was viewed as a type of martyrdom; a voluntary, Christ-like self-sacrifice, that looked forward to a spiritual resurrection of National Socialism at a later date when the Aryan race would need it the most. These esoteric beliefs led to disputes with the World Union of National Socialists, which Rockwell had founded and whose leader, Danish neo-Nazi Povl Riis-Knudsen, had been appointed by Koehl. Undaunted, Koehl continued to recast the party as a new religion in formation. Public rallies were gradually phased out in favor of low-key gatherings in private venues. On Labor Day 1979, in a highly unpopular move for some members, Koehl disbanded the party’s paramilitary “Storm Troopers”.[citation needed] The Koehl organization is now known as the New Order and it operates so far from the public spotlight that few of today’s neo-Nazis are aware of its existence or know that it is the linear descendant of Rockwell’s original ANP.[citation needed] On November 3, 1979, some members of the NSWPP and a Ku Klux Klan group attacked a Communist Workers’ Party protest march in Greensboro, North Carolina. The alliance of neo-Nazis and Klansmen shot and killed five marchers. Forty Klansmen and neo-Nazis were involved in the shootings with sixteen Klansmen and neo-Nazis being arrested. The six strongest cases were brought to trial first, but the two criminal trials resulted in the acquittal of the defendants by all-white juries. However, in a 1985 civil lawsuit, the survivors won a $350,000 judgment against the city, the Klansmen, and the neo-Nazis for violating the civil rights of the demonstrators. The shootings became known as the “Greensboro Massacre”.[citation needed] Since the late 1960s, there have been a number of small groups that have used the name “American Nazi Party”.

Thursday Bird Droppings: Where the Orioles are cutting some … – Camden Chat

Hello, friends. There are now 25 days remaining until Orioles Opening Day. This number is currently in use by Hyun Soo Kim, and in the past was used by a lot of Orioles, including Rafael Palmeiro, Rich Dauer, and Moe Drabowsky. The Orioles are continuing to pare down their spring roster, sending out a few players at a time who were obviously never going to make the big league club out of spring training. I mean, let’s get serious here. Jason Garcia wasn’t going to be on the MLB squad even if he was perfect every time out there – which he wasn’t. He looked like the same old Jason Garcia. And this year he’ll get to be that same Garcia at Norfolk instead of Bowie. Today happens to be an off day for the Orioles, so there will be nothing happening, not even a fake game. During yesterday’s MASN broadcast, they claimed that the facilities would be locked up and no one could even get into the weight room on their day off. I don’t know about that, but it’s what they said. On the bright side, if you want to watch some Orioles playing baseball today, you will still get a chance to do so. The Dominican Republic’s first game in the WBC is getting underway tonight at 6pm on MLB Network. You’ll be able to watch Manny Machado and Welington Castillo in action against Canada. Orioles continue first round of camp cuts, including Jason Garcia, Parker Bridwell – Baltimore Sun It was going to be a strange set of circumstances that might lead to Bridwell making the Opening Day roster, too. And sure enough, he’s off to minor league camp for the balance of spring. Dariel lvarez agrees to start pitching program (and more notes) – School of Roch It seems that Alvarez realized the writing was on the wall after being included in the very first round of cuts and so now he is going to try to undergo the reliever conversion. Well, good luck. The ongoing tale of three once highly ranked O’s prospects – Steve Melewski One thing happening in this article is that Melewski is offering the claim that Christian Walker and Dariel Alvarez were once highly ranked O’s prospects, which is not a claim that has much support in observable reality. Jonah Keri’s spring training tour: Projection smashing Orioles defying the odds – CBSSports.com Keri is one of the many baseball pundits who doesn’t seem to know what to make of the Orioles, although he tries harder than most in an effort to understand them. Baltimore Orioles star Manny Machado made father proud by picking Dominican Republic (ESPN) There may have been a very, very similar article to this in yesterday’s Bird Droppings. ESPN, you were a day late to this party! So was the Sun, it seems. Jonathan Schoop recalls first taste of Classic | MLB.com Schoop was still a minor leaguer the last time the WBC came around. Now he’s heading into his fourth big league season as he participates in this year’s edition. One lone former Oriole has a birthday today: 2011 LOOGY Clay Rapada. Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! Your birthday buddies for today include: explorer Amerigo Vespucci (1454), Stanford University founder Amasa Leland Stanford (1824), space pioneer Yuri Gagarin (1934), actor Oscar Isaac (1979), and rapper Bow Bow (1987). Not really a big day for birthdays. Well, you’ve also got George Lincoln Rockwell, the founder of the American Nazi Party (1918). In 1847, American forces launched the first-ever large-scale amphibious assault in the country’s history, landing for the Siege of Veracruz during the Mexican-American War. In 1933, President Franklin B. Roosevelt submitted the Emergency Banking Act to Congress. This was the first of his New Deal programs. In 1959, the Barbie doll debuted at the American International Toy Fair in New York. In 1982, a group known as the Krononauts held an event in Baltimore in which they invited any future time travelers to come and meet one another. ** And that’s the way it is in Birdland on March 9 – or at least, unless something happens later, which, since it’s an off day, hopefully it won’t. Have a safe Thursday.

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

Twitter Facebook Email ProPublicas Documenting Hate project recorded more than 330 reports of anti-Semitic incidents during a three-month span, from early November to early February. ProPublicas Documenting Hate project recorded more than 330 reports of anti-Semitic incidents during a three-month span, from early November to early February. by A.C. Thompson and Ken Schwencke ProPublica, March 8, 2017, 5:36 p.m. 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 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. A timeline of bomb threats against Jewish Community Centers and other organizations See the graphic. President Trump, after weeks of criticism for being slow to condemn the incidents, last week 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. 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 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. Hate crimes and bias incidents are a national problem, but theres no reliable data on their nature or prevalence. Were collecting reports to create a national database for use by journalists and civil-rights organizations. See the project. The vandalizing of a Jewish graveyard in St. Louis becomes a very personal entry in our Documenting Hate database. Read the story. 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. A.C. Thompson covers criminal justice issues for ProPublica. He has been a reporter for 12 years, mostly in the San Francisco Bay area. Ken Schwencke is a journalist and developer building news apps for ProPublica’s Electionland project.

9781684183265: Collected Works – AbeBooks – George Lincoln …

The essays contained in this book were written and published during the lifetime of George Lincoln Rockwell. Together with his two books, This Time the World and White Power, they accurately represent the worldview of one of America’s most enigmatic postwar political figures–a man who literally leapt into national prominence out of nowhere by being the first American to openly declare himself to be a National Socialist. Some of the essays contained in this collection, such as the Fable of the Ducks and the Hens, were written before Rockwell launched his American Nazi Party in 1958, but all were reproduced once again during his lifetime in party publications or leaflets. This volume also contains the full text of former ANP ideological officer and later leader of the National Alliance, Dr. William Pierce’s tribute to Rockwell, written after the latter’s death. Finally, a fully comprehensive timeline of Lincoln Rockwell is included to provide the reader with a chronological sequence of his major life events.

There are claims that Lincoln Rockwell wrote three other essays, which have been given titles such as “How to Get out and Stay out of the Insane Asylum,” “The Bible on Sharp Jewish Methods” and “Nightmare.” All three of these pieces are not independent essays but in fact extracts from Rockwell’s two books, This Time the World and White Power. As such, they are not included in this collection. “synopsis” may belong to another edition of this title.

How Free Is Free Speech? – The Santa Barbara Independent – Santa Barbara Independent

Those who do not support free speech for those they despise do not support free speech at all. NoamChomsky A scheduled appearance by controversial self-described radical anti-Christian feminist Mila Ziannopolous at UC Berkeley was canceled when campus police were unable to quell demonstrators bent upon blocking her appearance. Student demonstrators were joined by 100-150 ninja-clad members of an Oakland-based anti-Communist brigade who smashed windows and set fires. Stephen Jones, one of the leaders of the conservative student protesters, stated, I believe in free speech, but purveyors of hate speech have no right to speak on this campus or anywhereelse. This incident followed cancellation of an appearance by Ziannapolous at UC Davis two weeks ago due to threats of violence. She had been invited by campus Democrats who emphasized that they did not necessarily agree with her views but felt she had a right to express them. For the First Amendment to have real meaning, Sheila Jackson, president of the campus Democrats stated, it must be extended to those whose views many may find offensive. A writer for a radical left website, Ziannapolous has asserted that all males, by virtue of their gender dominance, are complicit in a rape culture and that Christianity is a religion that subjugates women andminorities. On the same day as the UC Berkeley riot, a performance by an outspoken liberal comedian at New York University was ended when conservative students stormed the auditorium and pepper-sprayed him. In 2014 a conservative pro-life professor at UC Santa Barbara harassed a pro-choice demonstrator and seized her sign. Other incidents in which liberal speakers have been blocked from appearing on college campuses have occurred in recent years. Conservative students have claimed that offensive views held by these speakers about race, religion, and gender violate their right to a safezone. Of course, the stories above are fake news of my creation. I flipped the script of events that have occurred recently on college campuses involving incendiary conservative speakers. But if conservative students did engage in the suppression of speech described. students on the left surely would be invoking Voltaire, John Milton, John Stuart Mill, and Martin Luther King in a robust defense of free expression and with justification. Thus it is dismaying to me as a liberal that so many students and, even more disturbingly, so many faculty members on university campuses appear unclear on the concept of free expression when it applies to those they strongly disagree with. Also dismaying is the silence of the many on the left who do understand the concept but decline to speak out in defense of freespeech. Brietbart writer Milo Yiannopolous, whose appearances were blocked at Davis and Berkeley, is a provocateur, whose stock and trade is baiting the left. He is a gay man who feels gays should stay in the closet. He ridicules the transgendered and immigrants. He accuses feminists of wallowing in victimhood and calls the rape culture a fantasy. Yiannopolous also went too far when he condoned pedophilia in a 2013 video, recently released, which got him disinvited as a speaker at a CPAC conference and ended up with his resignation from Breitbart onTuesday. Those of us old enough to remember the 60s recall that provocateurs on the left like Eldridge Cleaver, a convicted rapist whose views on race were condemned by many civil rights leaders, were not merely tolerated but frequently welcomed on college campuses precisely because they were controversial. Those who objected to inviting such figures were dismissed with What part of Voltaire dont you understand? and rightly so. Even George Lincoln Rockwell, then leader of the American Nazi Party, was allowed to speak at UCSB in 1966. He was picketed by protesters, an exercise in their First Amendment rights, but there was no organized effort to block hisappearance. Since that period, a view has taken root on college campuses that freedom of speech can be applied selectively and that some students and faculty members can appoint themselves guardians of what is permissible speech. The arbitrary result: Yiannapoulos encountered mass resistance while Louis Farrakhan, with a deserved reputation as an anti-Semite and misogynist, spoke at Berkeley in 2012 without getting the Black Bloctreatment. Some who have participated in efforts to block not just outspoken conservatives but even speakers like Madeleine Albright and Laura Bush (!) among many others, have advanced the Orwellian argument that prohibiting speech is, in fact, an act of free speech (Newspeak: Suppression of speech equals freedom of speech). A number of demonstrators even condoned the storm trooper tactics of the Black Bloc anarchists who assaulted supporters of Yiannapolous at Berkeley. Yvette Felarca, a leader of the group Any Means Necessary, declared, Everyone cheered. Everyone was there with us in political agreement of the necessity of shutting it down, whatever it was going totake. Anyone who is invited by a student group to speak at a public university has an absolute right to do so under the First Amendment. This right is not conditional or situational or debatable. Advocacy of any idea in the abstract is protected; only that narrow range of speech directly linked to specific illegal activity can be prohibited under the Constitution. The Supreme Court has ruled that even hate speech is protected and for good reason. There is no consensus on where the line is between offensive or controversial speech and hate speech. Empowering any entity to draw that line creates a dangerous slippery slope. The antidote to hate speech, as the American Civil Liberties Union has long argued, is not suppression of speech, but morespeech. In a class on the First Amendment, Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean of the UC Irvine Law School. and an ACLU liberal in the best tradition, is addressing this declining understanding in academia of what free speech means. He notes that the views of students on this subject evolve during the course as they are exposed to the history of speech and repression. They learn that the same arguments currently being used to rationalize suppression of speech have been used for centuries, often to repress movements on the left. They learn that whenever a group has asserted itself as an arbiter of permissible speech, it has abused thatpower. The Free Speech Movement that emerged on the Berkeley campus in 1964 rejected the notion that college administrators had the right to restrict political advocacy. The irony now is that it is administrators who are resisting calls by students and faculty to restrict speech. Recent UC presidents are to be lauded for a full- throated defense of all types of advocacy, whether by a Farrakhan or a Yiannopolous. Preserving the free marketplace of ideas is an existential priority for academia. Sadly, survival of that free marketplace may require that students and faculty consider taking RemedialVoltaire.
