Home-grown Nazis Inveigh Against Jews for Pentagon Papers

Download PDF for this date

The latest dial-a-hate message, recorded by the National Socialist white Peoples Parry. Inveighs against what it calls “the bunch of kikes controlling and dominating the news media” for not considering national security and publishing the Pentagon Papers. The recorded message, which anyone with a phone can hear, supposedly originates at 2507 North Franklin Road, Arlington, Va. A spokesman for the telephone company told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that as long as the party gives the point of origin and uses the recording and connecting equipment legally, the company has no authority over what the message can or cannot say. He added that the last complaint received about a hate message was two years ago and that he has not checked out a message for legality since then.

The latest in the series of hate-mongering phone messages mentions several Jewish-sounding names connected with the New York Times, the newspaper that first published the secret Pentagon documents on the origin of American involvement in Vietnam. It alleges that they “lie, distort and censor the news regularly.” The message further characterizes the press as a “kosher monopoly.” The new hate message, and literature of the American Nazis delivered to the JTA’s Washington office coincides with an upsurge of Nazi activity in this area. On June 19, several Nazis were arrested after scuffling with members of the Jewish Defense League. The Party held two rallies over the Fourth of July week-end, one of them in front of the White House, on the theme, “wash the Jews out of Washington.” A few fist fights broke out between the Nazis and several non-Jewish onlookers.
