For those unfamiliar with George Lincoln Rockwell, perhaps this writing, drawn from The Fame of a Dead Man’s Deeds, will provide a sense of him.book on the late William Pierce,
George Lincoln Rockwell was a tall, slim, dark-haired, good-looking fellow in his forties when, for a few years in the 1960s, he became a prominent figure in American life. Rockwell billed himself as the Commander of the American Nazi Party, which he founded and headquartered at Arlington, Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C. He had twenty or so active participants in his organization, and a few hundred subscribed to his publications, Stormtrooper and The Rockwell Report.
Rockwell projected a dashing, rakish image with his corncob pipe, and tended to approach things with a showbiz touch. His public rallies, with him surrounded by “stormtroopers” and American and Nazi flags and decked out like Hitler in a brown uniform and boots and a swastika armband greeting his audience with the Roman salute, had a theatrical and, to many, frightening quality. In his speeches Rockwell railed against Jews for being behind (((communism))) and scheming to mongrelize the American racial stock by promoting racial integration and interbreeding with blacks. He called for resettling American blacks in Africa in a new African state at public expense.
Rockwell was both serious and tongue-in-cheek. In response to the freedom rides, as they were called, where civil rights activists rode buses in the South to integrate interstate bus travel, Rockwell and some of his fellow Nazis drove a “hate bus” through the South. With reference to the strong Jewish presence among psychoanalysts and therapists, Rockwell put out a pamphlet that gave instructions on “how to combat the Jew mental health attack.” And there was his booklet, “The Diary of Ann Fink.”
