    This was a difficult book to read and will be a tough one to review not because it was poorly written but because it's subject a hardcore racist and anti semite is repugnant I won't dress it up there is crude offensive gutter language in it but I do think it serves a purpose that's illustrative By not sparing people's sensitivities you can see just how bad things can get In my desire to read this year on the American Civil Rights Movement and what kind of people they faced I felt that this biography offers an opportunity to see the events leading someone to become racist the rationales and justifications they use and the tactics they use against the objects of their hatred In this this book does not disappoint Nazis surely are history's greatest villains so even loathsome must be the man who just 15 years after they were defeated in World War 2 restarted this party in the nation that gave so much to defeat them However to his credit Schmaltz resists the temptation to turn this into a vilification The facts of Rockwell's life say enough and by simply giving us these facts vilification's hardly necessary the truth has its day and does not speak kindly of this manOne of the things I found disturbing is that Rockwell did not have the background I might have expected of a hardcore racist leader He was not abused his family was not bigoted Other than his parent's divorcing he had a fairly normal childhood He does seem to have been intelligent and was neither abused nor bullied He did have headstrong defiant personality Yet I've read many a bio of other men of similar personality in childhood who grew up to become successfulIn fact Rockwell joined the Navy during World War 2 and served creditably and competently as a naval aviator fighting in the Pacific Theater I've known many men including myself who were children of divorce also joined the military becoming military aviators For must of us all that I've known the experience of military service if anything reinforced the idea of teamwork with everyone regardless of background And there is nothing in Rockwell's own service in the Navy to indicate otherwise In short he was a professional honorable naval officer eventually rising to the rank of commander So what follows next in his life still puzzles and bothers meSomewhere during his recall to naval service due to the Korean War Rockwell seemed to doubt the nature of where America was headed Just small doubts it seems Then a seemingly inocuous suggestion from a woman acuaintance he barely knew that the reason the newspapers were soft on communists and against Gen MacArthur was because they were all controlled by Jews seems to have been the spark that ignited Rockwell's radicalization And similar to that of some Islamic terrorists this radicalization apparently came almost out of nowhere and then proceeded rapidly Throughout the 50s Rockwell's views and political activities increasingly became bigoted racist and antisemitic So much so that the Navy suspended his naval service and then ultimately discharged him from the service just 6 months short of the 20 year retirement eligibility Even distressing is the toll this took upon his wife and family Rockwell's activities were causing them to daily receive death threats as well as attacks upon the family home ultimately prompting her to flee to her native Iceland taking their 4 children with herI thought after reading this I might understand why Rockwell was indifferent to these things but as well as Schmaltz relates the story I'm still perplexed A man might have his prejudices but George Lincoln Rockwell threw away an honorable respected naval career and endangered and eventually lost his family just to pursue and agitate on the far fringe of a society that was rapidly moving away from the bigotries that drove RockwellI know one ought not to feel sympathy for a Nazi but one of the saddest parts of this book is when Rockwell is alone virtually broke unemployed the utilities to his vandalized home cut off And during this nadir he seems to experience a moment of clarity Resolving to abandon his efforts to restart the Nazi Party he gathers his last savings flies to Iceland to reconcile with his estranged wife and to rebuild his relationship with his children and try to start a new life there Only to be flatly rebuffed by his wife and asked to leave This really was Rockwell's last chance at a redemption that he now would never find again nor ever attempt One wonders what might have happened had his wife and her family accepted him Might Rockwell have recovered might he have become a better man seen the relative tolerance of Scandinavian society and taken that world view and although never famous or infamous become someone better than those a father to his children a good husband to his wife We'll never knowFor after this Rockwell's descent into hatred paranoia and megalomania go from a slow stroll into an accelerating downward spiral that is painful and disgusting to read At this point this is no longer a man with merely odd or distasteful personal views but one who actively does his utmost to win others to themWhich brings up other issues how does a free open society accommodate those with unpopular discordant or repugnant views and opinions? This is something that arises repeatedly in this book There is a notion in my own generation that we're somehow tolerant and against racism and bigotry than people were 50 60 years ago but clearly this is not the case Rockwell did not find fertile ground for Nazism in America then not even in his efforts to gain a following in the Jim Crow South uite the contrary he was vigorously opposed with counter demonstrations heckling death threats vandalism intimidation and physical assaults as well as harassment from local officials and law enforcement Even in the South Rockwell was opposed Yet inexplicably Rockwell persisted in his brand of hatred nonetheless In fact these system to have crystallized his sense of superiority and certitude that his beliefs were in the right One thing I found particularly manipulative and misleading was Rockwell's freuent claims to be protecting Christian civilization with his Nazi efforts even as in private he repeatedly ridiculed Christianity as being silly for its fixation upon a dead Jew nailed to a piece of wood But this is coming from a man who by this time was beyond shame in even vile slurs against black and Jews Yet despite being an entertaining speaker with good wit and humor Rockwell never did gain much than 200 members to the American Nazi Party ANP This book does a good job at telling how the ANP was kept from growing larger For the initial violence as Rockwell's Jewish opponents in the ADL and Jewish War Veterans learned was counter productive merely generating the attention and publicity that Rockwell craved and sought to gain yet supportUltimately the most successful tactics against the ANP was his opponents ignoring their street demonstrations organizing plain silence vs heckling and seizing the rostrum at Rockwell's college speeches and using the power of Government regulation and enforcement to wear the ANP down Rigorous code enforcement on ANP meeting places strict enforcement of traffic regulations and the internal revenue code did much to damage and hobble the ANP such that it never could acuire the financial resources to grow beyond a few hundredAs the turbulent 60s continued Rockwell increasingly seems a man out of his time a man fighting vainly against social changes in an America that's passed bigots such as him byHowever Rockwell's demise would not come at the hands of the people he hated He was slain by a disaffected former supporter Ironically the man who promoted hatred would be undone by one of his own whom he trained to hate much as Malcolm X would also be murdered by former fellow Nation of Islam co religionists whom he'd taught also to hate others for their raceSo what's the point of reading a book like this? It's definitely not for everybody However I do think that it shows how a man can become the most vile racist and bigot gain a following and how such a man can be contained and held back in a free nation In Germany Hitler took over and ended as a tragedy for the world in America Rockwell the man who would be Hitler ultimately ended as a farce cut down in a laundromat parking lot his remains ironically cremated in the manner in which he wished upon the Jews he hated

    After all these years George Lincoln Rockwell still remains one of the most interesting figures to appear on the white nationalist scene Son of a famous in his day vaudeville performer went to an ivy league school flew missions in ww2 and Korea married to the daughter of the Icelandic ambassador to the United States a talented artist and cartoonist the list goes on and on Rockwell really is someone who could have been a success at almost anything he chose to in life and is not the typical maladjusted freak that often gravitates toward white nationalism in its various forms Schmaltz has written a very fair and unbiased account of Rockwell and his stormtroopers who were a menage of brawlers ex cons and misfits along with some genuinly talented individuals Rockwell in many ways was like a great pro wrestling heel with his agitation techniues he inflamed crowds beyond the boiling point to out and out brawling riots many a time but he also often won over initially hostile crowds using his sense of humor Rockwell was a VERY funny guy He was also the first public figure in the white nationalist scene to reject and ridicule the right wing he was the first to draw alliances with black radicals he had meetings with Malcolm X and was a guest speaker at NOI rallies a few times so he was and actually still is a man years ahead of his time in many ways The life of Rockwell is covered in this book from childhood to his assassination at the hands of one of his most dedicated followers in a very fair unbiased and fascinating account of the life and times of GLR

    To date the best biography of the founder of American neo Nazism Written in a remarkably accessible style with dozens of great photos but also a good index and reference section Rockwell's growing popularity in the 1960s refutes many simplistic views of the period as one of Leftist triumph


  4. says:

    William H Schmaltz’s Hate George Lincoln Rockwell and the American Nazi Party is biography of the founder of the American Nazi Party including his rise and fall It is difficult to pinpoint precisely what transformed George Lincoln Rockwell from a seemingly ordinary individual into an ardent supporter of Hitler and National Socialism as well as a driving force in the rise of Holocaust denial The American Nazi Party endured countless court battles and protests and Rockwell was even briefly committed in a mental institution; however whether he was truly mentally ill—in the strict clinical sense—is far from clear Additionally the American Nazi Party continuously struggled to get off the ground—even by the standards of hate groups the party never gained much traction in acceptance of its ideas or in fundraising Further while Rockwell was somewhat successful in getting media and press coverage the day to day operations were fraught with infighting and mismanagement The American Nazi Party eventually became a target for the FBI’s COINTELPRO operations although the impact was debatable—the IRS’ seizure of the party’s property and assets had a demonstrable impact than the FBI’s attempts to disrupt the organization It is conceivable that the American Nazi Party would have eventually collapsed under its own weight even if the FBI had never gotten involved Regardless the organization fell into disarray in 1967 after Rockwell was murdered by a former member Although Hate is well researched and written it’s still extremely difficult to for me to fully comprehend how someone could sincerely hold such hateful and extreme views It’s even harder to understand Rockwell’s delusions of grandeur—he genuinely believed a majority of people would eventually support his cause What may be hardest of all to understand is Rockwell’s willingness to lose everything for it—he not only lost multiple marriages but a stable military career and almost any chance of having employment outside of the American Nazi Party

    A very well researched look at the man behind the American Nazi Party and all its players I really enjoyed this book but at the same time it made me very sad George Lincoln Rockwell was a very well spoken smart man but had the wrong ideas on just about everything Then said Jesus unto him Put up again thy sword into his place for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword—Matthew 2652


  6. says:

    Fascinating book about a strange and seemingly sincere and smart man Very well written and interesting


  7. says:

    This is the best look at George Lincoln RockwellRockwell didn't come fro a poor or abused background and served in World War II and Korea but never showed any racist views until the mid 50s50s when he was convinced the Jewish people were behind the communist movement From then on Rockwell became one of the strongest voices in the white power movement This book takes a look at Rockwell and his views and how he tried to lead the nation in a new Nazi movement and how even after his death he became one of the most influential voices in white supremacyDealing with hate and prejudice this book is a look into one of the darker realities in historyGood read but not pretty


  8. says:

    Amazing book not just a biography of a single person but of a mostly forgotten counter culture not usually associated with that eraI’m struck by the similarities by today’s alt right movement and their copying of Rockwell’s techniues including agitation at university speaking engagements street theatre and even his whining self pitying complaints and constant attempts to portray himself as the “real victim”I wonder if they read the book to its conclusion it doesn’t end well for Rockwell as it usually doesn’t for Nazis


  9. says:

    This is a story of the American Nazi Party ANP from its inception to modern iteration For those interested in 20th century American history especially those interested in the Civil Rights movement and counter movement this garners 5 stars As someone who has read plenty on the CR movement but not as much about the counter protests it was still very interesting George Lincoln Rockwell is as the title suggests the founder of what would become the ANP He like everyone in the ANP discussed in the book had some other misfortune or perceived misfortune befall them something that may still be common today amongst those who find membership in fringe groups both far left and right They find strength outside that they cannot for the most part find inside The most interesting part of this book for me was the analogs between the ANP state's rights and other white party movements of the 50s and 60s and the right wing protests of today The rhetoric minus the overt racism sexism and other language acceptable of the time is the same The absolute blind hatred is the same The desire to agitate for the sake of attention is the same The couching of their true issue in another less offensive issue is the same especially compared to today's right wing protests after the 2008 election Reading this as the Tea Party Protesters marched on Washington and across the nation at protests was eerie Again those interested in the counter movements of the 50s and 60s will greatly enjoy this book


  10. says:

    Interesting book recommend for anyone who wants a flavor for the turmoil of the 60's Yet disturbing
