George Lincoln Rockwell had come a long way from his birthplace in central Illinois, on March 9th, 1918. To be sure, his youth was far removed from the battlefields of New York City. He yearned to become a successful commercial artist, an ambition fulfilled when he won first prize in a national competition for the Cancer Foundation. Aware at last of his real destiny, he founded the American Nazi Party, fulfilling a prophesy the Führer made shortly before his death: The fight against the Jews will not be renewed first in Europe, but in the United States. Within twenty five years, the Americans will have begun to come to their senses about the Jewish Question.

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. 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.

George Lincoln Rockwell (March 9, 1918 – August 25, 1967) was an American politician and neo-Nazi. In 1959, he was discharged from the United States Navy because of his political views and founded the American Nazi Party. Rockwell denied The Holocaust and believed that Martin Luther King Jr. was a tool for Jewish Communists wanting to rule the white community. He blamed the civil rights movement on the Jews. He regarded Hitler as "the White savior of the twentieth century"

George Lincoln Rockwell, the media-savvy, pipe-smoking founder of the American Nazi Party, was blatantly racist, homophobic and antisemitic. He had also been spreading fears about black mobs attacking Congress. Instead, the Washington DC police department, which Rockwell assumed would be on his side, had denied him a permit.

George Lincoln Rockwell and members of the American Nazi Party attend a Nation of Islam summit, 1961. On Sunday, June 25, 1961, Rockwell and ten troopers attended a Black Muslim rally at Uline Arena in Washington. They watched in awe as convoys of chartered buses unloaded hundreds of passengers outside the arena and the Muslim vendors made a killing on official souvenirs and literature. The Nazis were frisked at the door of the arena by several well-dressed but stern-looking Fruit of Islam guards-the Gestapo of the Nation of Islam.

George Lincoln Rockwell flew U.S. Navy fighters against the Germans and Japanese during World War II yet after the war he founded the American Nazi Party. On 25th August 1967 he was assassinated. This is the first time the details of Rockwell's bizarre, hate-filled life have been told. Author William H. Schmaltz brings us in on Nazi planning and strategy sessions, and dangerous personnel conflicts among the stormtroopers. We learn of the strange relationship between Rockwell;s Nazis and the Black Muslims of Elijah Muhammad and Malcolm X, and the rationale behind Rockwell's repeated attacks on Martin Luther King Jr. Today, more than thirty years after his assassination, Rockwell;s poisonous legacy continues to spread among America;s radical Right, including the white separatist militias, the skinheads, the Ku Klux Klan, and those who deny the Holocaust.

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 techniques, 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.

So proclaimed American Nazi Party (ANP) founder and leader George Lincoln Rockwell, as quoted in William Schmaltz's biography Hate (p. 210). Rockwell, whose tawdry career as a political agitator ended in 1967 when he was gunned down by a disgruntled colleague, was big on words like "hate." For him, they conveyed an honesty that he thought missing from conventional American politics. Given his strong PR sensibilities, he also knew that extreme language attracted the press. (As he said many times, for example, the word "Nazi" caught media attention in a way that less inflammatory words couldn't.)

Schmaltz's biography is a chronicle of Rockwell's transformation from the son of a vaudeville couple to the pipe-smoking, cross-armed leader of a political movement whose actual membership never numbered much more than 100. Schmaltz quickly traces Rockwell's student years, his enlistment in the Navy, his early efforts at advertising and publishing, and his two failed marriages before swinging into a year-by-year account of Rockwell's life from his founding of the ANP in 1959 to his death.

Rockwell preferred to think of himself and his "Stormtroopers" as agitators. He was masterful in a two-fisted, blunt sort of way at manipulating the press, staging guerrilla theatre events that disrupted public meetings, and using audience-appropriate speech when speaking to different groups. In the last three or four years of his life he was a regular speaker on college campuses, traveling from coast to coast. His 1965 gubernatorial campaign in Virginia, while bringing him fewer than 6,000 votes, successfully gained him national media coverage.

The Rockwell that comes across in Schmaltz's biography is clearly an intelligent man with a lot of drive and discipline. But there's also an uncanny brokenness in him that's sometimes frightening and sometimes merely clownish. He throws out the coarsest racist labels without batting an eye; he tells a Canadian broadcaster that he wants to "gas queers"; he obsessively harps on the "Jewish menace," and just as obsessively insists on the racial superiority of whites to blacks; he tells student audiences, in perfect seriousness, that he'll be president of the US one day; and he likens Hitler to Christ and himself to St. Paul. He seems to thrive on a mixture of bravado, delusion, and hatred that's sometimes so buffoonish it's difficult to believe that he actually took himself seriously.

Unfortunately, it's not at all clear from Schmaltz's treatment how to understand Rockwell's brokenness. There's very little effort at getting inside the man. Instead, Schmaltz's treatment is for the most part a sometimes tiresomely listing of the external events in Rockwell's life. But at the end of the book, one still has no good sense of what makes Rockwell in particular or hatemongers in general tick. Rockwell remains elusive, enigmatic.

In fairness to Schmaltz, I should mention that he based much of his research on thousands of pages of FBI documentation obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. None of Rockwell's ex-wives, children, or siblings would allow themselves to be interviewed. Moreover, one begins to wonder if Rockwell became so fixated on creating a public persona that less and less of the "real" Rockwell remained. Perhaps all this explains, at least in part, why the "inner" Rockwell is largely absent from Schmaltz's biography.

Mr. Shmaltz has written a fascinating biography, full of action, turmoil and complexities. His style is refreshing, his insights keen and research exemplary. This book is a must for anyone who follows right wing extremism.
