Virginia House Brands American Nazi Party As Enemies of United States

March 5, 1962

The Virginia House of Delegates, moving swiftly to back up its earlier vote to revoke the charter of George Lincoln Rockwell’s American Nazi party, unanimously adopted a resolution yesterday labeling the group “enemies of the people of Virginia and of the United States.” The resolution, like the measure to revoke the party’s charter, was referred for further action to the State Senate.

The resolution said also that both the Nazi party and Communist groups “have sought to undermine the Virginia tradition of religious tolerance and respect for constitutional guarantees to all Americans.” (Three members of George Rockwell’s American Nazi Party wearing swastika armbands, khaki trousers and shirts, were arrested in New York this weekend for wearing prohibited uniforms and insignia as they picketed a Communist-sponsored rally at Carnegie Hall.)
