http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willis_Carto profile of Willis Carto, famous
American neo-Nazi who founded AFP/Barnes
... In 1955, he founded the organization called Liberty Lobby, which
remained in operation under the control of Willis Carto until 2001, when
the organization was forced into bankruptcy as a result of a lawsuit.
Liberty Lobby was perhaps best known for publishing the newspaper, The
Spotlight, between 1975 and 2001, which is also now defunct. Willis Carto
and other people who were involved with The Spotlight have since started a
new newspaper, called the American Free Press, which is similar in tone.
Carto was also the founder of a publishing company called Noontide Press,
which published a number of books on white racialist subjects, including
Yockey's Imperium. Noontide Press later became closely associated with the
Institute for Historical Review (IHR), and fell out of Carto's hands at
the same time as the IHR did. The IHR was founded by Willis Carto in 1979,
with the intent of promoting the proposition that the Nazi Holocaust never
happened - a view known as Holocaust revisionism or Holocaust denial.
After losing control of Noontide Press and the IHR in a hostile takeover
by former associates, Carto started another publication, the Barnes
Review, which is also dedicated to denying that the Holocaust happened.
Willis Carto has had a long history of attempting to take the remains of
existing groups and publications, and turning them into vehicles for his
ideology. In 1966, Willis Carto acquired control of the American Mercury,
a magazine which was once a highly respected periodical associated with
H.L. Mencken, but which was on its last leg by the time Carto acquired it,
and quickly went defunct. After the failed third-party Presidential
campaign of George Wallace in 1968, Carto acquired control of what was
left of the Youth for Wallace organization, and transformed it into an
openly white supremacist youth organization called the National Youth
Alliance. Carto eventually lost control of the National Youth Alliance to
a rival on the far right, William Pierce, who transformed it into the
National Alliance, which is today the most notorious neo-Nazi organization
operating in the United States. Willis Carto also acquired the Sun Radio
Network in the early 1990s, and attempted to use talk radio as a vehicle
for spreading his views. That network also became defunct under Carto's
In 1984, Willis Carto was among those involved in starting a new political
party called the Populist Party. As with many other Carto creations, this
group quickly fell out of the hands of Carto in a hostile takeover from
disgruntled former associates. This Populist Party, which critics charged
was an electoral vehicle for current and former Ku Klux Klan and Christian
Identity members, was not a continuation of the earlier Populist Party of
the late 1800s, which was a left-wing party. The Populist Party started by
Willis Carto was a party of the far right, and is best known for running
David Duke as its Presidential nominee in 1988, and former Green Beret
officer Bo Gritz in 1992. It disbanded by 1996.
In 2004, Carto joined in signing the New Orleans Protocol on behalf of
American Free Press. The New Orleans Protocol seeks to "mainstream our
cause" by reducing violence and internecine warfare, and was written by
David Duke. There are few movements on the American far right that have
not been influenced in one way or another by Willis Carto in the last 50
New Orleans Protocol
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The New Orleans Protocol (NOP) was signed in New Orleans, Louisiana, on
May 29, 2004 David Duke, then recently released from prison, organized a
weekend gathering of the euphemistically entitled "European Nationalists",
in the vein of White nationalism, which is often confused with White
supremacy. Following the death of William L. Pierce in 2002, White racial
movements had become splintered and divided. At the gathering Duke
presented his unity proposal for peace within the movement and a better
image to the outside world, to "mainstream our cause."
The NOP calls for "Zero tolerance for violence. Honourable and ethical
behaviour in relations with other signatory groups. (In other words, no
enemies on the racialist far-right.) Maintaining a high tone in our
arguments and public presentations." Commentary by Paul Fromm clarified
that violence in "self-defense" is permitted.
The signatories on that date were:
David Duke, European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO)
Don Black, Stormfront
Willis Carto, American Free Press
Dr. Ed Fields, Truth at Last
Sam G. Dickson, Council of Conservative Citizens
Kevin Alfred Strom and David Pringle, National Alliance
Paul Fromm, Canadian Association for Free Expression
John Tyndall, of the British National Party, signed as an individual, not
as a representative of his party.

Holocaust denial depends on the embrace of a mass conspiracy theory -- the
allegation that Jews, academics, historians and others falsified or
maliciously distorted all testimonies, reports and pictures of the
Holocaust. Holocaust deniers explain Jewish motivation behind the "Zionist
conspiracy" as a means to gain power and influence. In Carto's opening
speech to the 1981 IHR convention, he asserted that "Zionists" are
"predators" who exploit the "guilt" of Western society and "offer us
expiation for the sins of our fathers by giving us the magnificent
opportunity to contribute to the building of God's promised land for God's
chosen people with our tax money." The IHR's game plan is simple; by
legitimizing "debate" over the settled historical veracity of the
Holocaust, deniers hope to sow the seed of doubt, which in turn will
foster anti-Semitism in the form of resentment against those who have
promoted this "hoax": the Jews.
http://www.revisionists.com/revisionists/carto.html even the other nazi
nutters consider Carto a disruptive influence (warning: revisionists is a
pro-nazi holocaust denial site)
For nearly five decades Willis Carto has been an important but often
contentious and polarizing figure in the American "right wing" and the
historical revisionist movement. ...
In 1955 Carto founded Liberty Lobby, a "populist" organization that for
years published a nationally-circulated tabloid weekly, The Spotlight.
Following its collapse in 2001, Carto and former Liberty Lobby employees
launched American Free Press (AFP), a weekly tabloid similar to The
Spotlight in style, tone and content. He has since played an important
role in running AFP.
Carto also supervises The Barnes Review, a revisionist history journal he
founded in 1994 that targets a middle-brow readership.
The Barnes Review and AFP have jointly sponsored several conferences.
Carto has a long record of bitter and litigious fights with persons or
groups that he regards as rivals. During the 1980s, for example, he was
involved in launching the Populist Party. But soon he was embroiled in
conflict with the group's other leading figures, who accused him of
misappropriating many tens of thousands of dollars of Party funds. The
bitter dispute accelerated the Party's decline and collapse.
For some years Carto and his wife were associated with the Institute for
Historical Review, a leading "revisionist" publishing and educational
center that was founded in December 1978 by David McCalden with support
from Carto and several other persons.
In September 1993 the staff and management of the IHR and its parent
corporation terminated all ties with the Cartos after evidence came to
light that they were embezzling funds. (This theft was later proven in
Carto responded with an aggressive smear campaign against the IHR and
persons associated with it, accusing them of being agents of the Zionist
ADL, the CIA, and the Church of Scientology. He also initiated a series of
lawsuits against the IHR, its parent corporation, and persons associated
with the IHR.
Carto's costly and protracted campaign was not successful. Liberty Lobby
was forced into bankruptcy and went out of business. The Cartos likewise
filed for bankruptcy, and in early 2002 they lost their home in Escondido,
southern California. Since then they have been reportedly been living in
semi-hiding in northern Virginia.
A Brief History of Holocaust Revisionism
By Willis A. Carto
Auschwitz: The Final Count
By Michael Collins Piper
A thought-provoking new anthology edited by English historian Vivian Bird
casts stark new light on what really happened at Auschwitz during World
War II. As the evidence shows, the official "facts" just don¹t add up.
David Irving is a pseudo-historian who has been promoting Holocaust Denial
for decades. www.holocaust-history.org/pamphlets/irving/pamphlet.shtml
www.holocaustdenialontrial.org have excellent backgrounds on this racist's
In 2002, he extended an invitation to Michael Ruppert to speak at one of
his events, but without identifying what he is most known for (Holocaust
Denial). Before Ruppert found out who Mr. Irving really is, and before
Ruppert had committed to appearing, Irving had already printed up
thousands of leaflets promoting Ruppert's appearance at his neo-Nazi event
-- a connection that some then used to try to smear Ruppert as a
right-wing racist. The smear campaign claimed that Ruppert should have
automatically known who Irving was, although the fact that he refused the
invitation when he realized who Irving is should be suffiicient to
establish Mike's bona fides - it is a dirty trick to discredit serious
investigations into this scandal. (The webmaster of oilempire.us, who is
very familiar with the gory details of the Holocaust and is disgusted by
Holocaust Denial, was not familiar with Irving's identity on 9/11 -- and
was horrified to learn shortly after 9/11 that some neo-Nazis were trying
to hijack efforts to unearth what actually happened on 9/11.)
Irving's fpp.co.uk website has had some accurate material on 9/11
complicity since shortly after the attacks, but has also offered claims
that are difficult, if not impossible to prove. For example, Irving
offered the tantalizing information that Condi Rice had been the source
who warned then San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown not to fly on 9/11 (a
warning that Brown admitted to the San Francisco Chronicle immediately
after the attacks -- but he has never stated who warned him not to fly to
New York that day). The claim that Condi was the source is tempting to
believe (she had been on the faculty at Stanford and on the board of San
Francisco based Chevron and presumably knew Brown), but Irving did not
offer any evidence. Like other flavors of disinformation surrounding this
scandal, Irving has offered some real pieces of information as bait to
gain credibility for his nasty misinterpretations of history.
The Guardian, February 5, 2000
This is how [David Irving] approaches the entire topic. He dismisses the
evidence of the witnesses' own eyes: whether Jew or Nazi, they made it all
up. He sets a standard of proof for his enemies which no human event could
ever fully satisfy. And this is a challenge not only to Deborah Lipstadt.
... If Irving is able to dismiss the testimony of tens of thousands of
witnesses, where does that leave history? If we can't know this, how can
we know that Napoleon fought at Waterloo or that Henry VIII had six wives?
How can we know anything?
David John Cawdell Irving (born March 24, 1938) describes himself as a
self-taught historian who, from the late-1960s to the mid-1980s, was a
leading British author on World War II. Author of controversial works such
as Hitler¹s War and The Destruction of Dresden, Irving is also one of the
most accomplished and successful proponents of Holocaust denial. In the
mid-1980s, he started openly associating with Neo-Nazi and extremist
groups, and his reputation began to wane. In the late 1990s, he sued the
prominent Holocaust historian Deborah Lipstadt for listing him as a
Holocaust denier in her book Denying the Holocaust. After a much
publicized trial, Irving lost the case and was found to be a Holocaust
denier by the court.
Among Holocaust deniers, Irving is perhaps the only one who for some time
managed to maintain the reputation of a serious, if controversial,
historian. Irving is considered an icon by many in the Holocaust denial
camp, but since the Lipstadt trial verdict, he has fought an increasingly
isolated battle, and has been barred from entering many countries.

N.C. Wesleyan Professor's Web Site, Course Draw
POSTED: 5:39 pm EDT April 25, 2005
RALEIGH, N.C. -- The classroom where North Carolina
Wesleyan College's only political science professor
is teaching a course titled "9/11; The Road to
Tyranny" has become the latest battlefront in the
ongoing campus culture war.
On Tuesday, the six students enrolled in the
elective course taught by Jane T. Christensen were
to attend the course's final session: "Police State
USA (Where Do We Go From Here?)"
Christensen's course has conservatives raging
against campuses loaded with unaccountable liberals.
The president of N.C. Wesleyan, a school of 1,800
students 50 miles east of Raleigh in Rocky Mount, is
defending her right to academic freedom.
"Slander and anti-Semitism are permitted by a bigot
posing as a scholar," Mike Adams, a criminal justice
professor at the University of North Carolina at
Wilmington, wrote in an online critique on

One text required in Christensen's 9/11 course holds
that the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the
United States were orchestrated and carried out by
U.S. government elites. The course teaches that the
official story about Sept. 11 is the result of
"government involvement in the cover-up."
The attacks were used by neo-conservatives in the
Bush administration, acting on behalf of pro-Israel
Zionists, as "a catalyst for the wars in Afghanistan
and Iraq as well as the attack on civil liberties in
the United States," according to the course's
"I teach the truth about 9/11 in all of my courses,"
said Christensen, who also teaches classes on
research methods and the American political system.
Other professors have encountered criticism for
voicing alternative views of the Sept. 11 attacks.
University of Colorado ethnic studies professor Ward
Churchill came under scrutiny after writing that
workers in the World Trade Center were the
equivalent of "little Eichmanns," a reference to
Adolf Eichmann, who ensured the smooth running of
the Nazi system. Churchill said his essay referred
to "technocrats" who participate in what he calls
repressive American policies around the world.
Churchill also spoke of the "gallant sacrifices" of
the "combat teams" that struck America.
And North Carolina has seen battles over the
academic community's response to Sept. 11, as when
three incoming freshmen sued the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill over a summer reading
assignment of a book that examined Muslim beliefs.
In an interview Monday with The Associated Press,
Christensen - a tenured professor with 15 years at
N.C. Wesleyan - defended her course.
"This is a war by the extreme right wing motivated
by the Zionists to quash academic freedom on
campus," she said.
Students will "never find anything that resembles
the truth about 9/11 or the war in Iraq from the
mainstream media," she added.
Christensen urged an interviewer to investigate how
many Iraqis have been killed since the U.S. invasion
two years ago, whether several of the suicide
hijackers on 9/11 have since been spotted alive, and
whether Israel is planning targeted killings of
opponents in the United States.
"That's a hell of a lot more interesting than my
(expletive) Web site," she said.

weapons and the statement: "Fighting the New World

Ian Newbould, N.C. Wesleyan's president, defended
Christensen in an interview.
"We don't tell professors what to think. We don't
tell professors what to teach. The Eastern European
Communist regimes, or Saddam Hussein for that
matter, that's what they did," Newbould said Monday.
"What makes America great is we don't do that. I've
often used a quotation that they say comes from
Voltaire, `I may disagree with what you say but I'll
fight to your death your right to say it.'"
A year ago, Newbould participated in a panel
discussion at a convention of independent college
administrators about whether college presidents
should express personal opinions on controversial
national issues. He said presidents should stay in
the background, while providing opportunities for
N.C. Wesleyan is a liberal arts college affiliated
with the United Methodists.

applicants for a second political science
professorship - a hiring decision he said is
independent of any controversy over Christensen.

A site that was an early participant in 9/11 truth movement but devolved
into promoting a variation of the "no plane" at Pentagon and the bizarre
claims that there are no natural limits to petroleum production. Its
webmaster prefers the term "Holocaust Revisionism" to "Denial" - and
admits that perhaps 1 to 3 million Jewish people were killed by the Nazis.
However, that requires one to still deny much of the Holocaust, although
it is less overtly offensive than claiming that almost no one was killed.
