Eustace Mullins is dead

Esteemed populist historian (actually anti-semitic crank) Eustace Mullins died Tuesday.

Several years ago, the late political scientist Dr. John George, co-author with Laird Wilcox of the 1992 book "Nazis, Communists, Klansmen and Others on The Fringe" told me in confidence about a 1966 interview he had with neo-nazi H. Keith Thompson Jr.

Thompson had known Mullins since the 1950's when he recruited him to join Thompson's short-lived group, the American Committee for the Advancement of Western Culture.

Thompson told Dr. George about a conversation he had with Mullins in which Mullins acknowledged that he often concocted fabrications to cause grief to Jews.

H. Keith Thompson, according to Michael Collins Piper, was once romantically involved with Lee Harvey Oswald's mother Marguerite.

Thanks for pointing out that this supposed conspiracy theorist hero was actually an anti-semitic douchebag. It's disconcerting that many in the anomalies community consider this guy a hero (I'm looking at you Micah Hanks.)

I found one of the comments amusing - the guy talks about how people from all walks of life came to see Mullins speak - Really? There are anti-semites in all walks of life? You don't say!
