Staunton anti-Semite Mullins dies at 86
Mullins was a nationally known white supremacist


By David Fritz/staff • dfritz@newsleader.com • February 5, 2010

Nationally known white supremacist and anti-Semite Eustace Mullins of Staunton, described in 2000 by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a one-man organization of hate, died Wednesday in Waller County, Texas, at age 86.

Mullins was born in Roanoke on March 9, 1923. He moved to Staunton as a child, and lived in Washington, D.C. , and Chicago before returning to Staunton to care for his ailing mother. After her death, he remained here.

The right-wing blogosphere lit up on Thursday with unattributed reports of his death, saying he had been staying with an unidentified caretaker since suffering a stroke several weeks ago while in Ohio. That could not be independently confirmed.
A spokeswoman at Canon Funeral Home in Waller, Texas, said only that Mullins died Tuesday. Local services are planned for Swoope, but no details have been announced. Henry Funeral Home said it will handle local arrangements.

"He was one of the old movement icons who has been around for many years," said Joe Roy, chief investigator for the SPLC's Intelligence Project, which tracks hate groups. "He was an exemplar of people who felt like they weren't getting their piece of the American dream and shook their fists at the powers that be."

That fist shaking began in the early 1950s.

While living and working Washington, he befriended Ezra Pound, an influential American poet who had broadcast anti-American, anti-Semitic short-wave radio rants from fascist Italy during World War II. After the war, Pound was charged by the United States with treason but imprisoned at St. Elizabeth's Hospital after he was found incompetent to stand trial.

A mutual friend introduced Mullins to Pound at St. Elizabeth's. Mullins, then a Library of Congress photographic researcher, became a regular visitor and protégé. Pound either introduced to Mullins or reinforced in him the belief that the world's ills were the fault of Jews, communists and non-whites. At Pound's direction, Mullins began writing about conspiracies involving the origins, underpinnings and power of the Federal Reserve Bank, eventually earning him dismissal from his job.

During the 1950s, Mullins name and writings surfaced in relation to several radical groups and publications.

He came to the attention of the House Committee on Un-American Activities in a 1954 report which sited his article "Adolph Hitler: An Appreciation," written in 1952 for the National Renaissance Party. In it he compared Hitler to Christ and described both as victims of Jews.

He frequently wrote in a right-wing publication called, "Common Sense."

Besides controversial writings in his own name, he was widely believed to have concocted propaganda hoaxes by authoring improbably self-damaging writings attributed to others but supporting Mullins' extremist views. At one point he also adopted the title of "reverend" and saying he represented what he called the "American Humane Church."
Besides his church, he also took credit for or appeared on letterhead of several other organizations, usually operating at his home address at the time.

In 1955 he listed himself as Executive Director of the "Aryan League of America" at a Springhill Road, Staunton, address.
In 1960, his name was one of two listed on the letterhead for the policy committee of the Institute for Biopolitics in Chicago. One memo warned, "The Whiteman's very existence is in danger."

By 2000 he was self-publishing under the name Revelation Books, using his address on Madison Place in Staunton.
While his primary battles were literary, he also was no stranger to the courtroom.

In 1956 he sued the American Petroleum Industries Committee, claiming he was owed $50,000 for fanning anti-Jewish — and thus pro-Arab — sentiments at a time when the state of Israel was getting positive attention in the media of the day. He said he received only a token $100 payment for his services and sued, according to a report in the New York Journal American. He eventually lost the case.

In 1961 Mullins sued The Washington Post, King Features Syndicate, its syndicated writer George E. Sokolsky and Staunton Leader Publishing Co. over a piece Sokolsky wrote about correspondence he received from Mullins.

Mullins reportedly wrote Sokolsky a letter asking about whether he was one of three conspirators who prompted the Russian revolution. Sokolsky dismissed the idea but proceeded to report on some of Mullins conspiracy mongering, earning him Mullins' legal attention.

Two years later the case was thrown out of court without Mullins collecting the $1.25 million he sought.

In 2000, when Mullins made the Southern Poverty Law Center's hate group list, the aging writer invited a Daily News Leader intern and photographer into his home for an interview. The resulting story portrayed Mullins as holding tight to his beliefs from a home cluttered with a lifetime of papers and possessions.

It also proved that he still knew his way around a court filing.

Three times in three courts he filed suit over that story, alleging everything from libel to works of organized crime against him. He said he was being harassed by neighbors and targeted for persecution by Staunton Police. All three suits were eventually thrown out.

In recent years some of Mullins writings have gained him new followers, including new generations via the Web, Internet radio and You Tube.

Some of his writings suggested evil plots behind vaccinations and fluoridation of water, which resonated anew in the 1990s and early 2000s.

Since 2008, a time when people are upset about bailouts within the financial system, criticism and suspicion of the Federal Reserve gave him a new notoriety. His early works were repeatedly cut and pasted from one Web site to another, as were his more recent claims of persecution and kidnappings.

His Federal Reserve theories were similar to those of James Wenneker von Brunn, an aging supremacist who last year decided to end his life by attacking the United States Holocaust Memorial, although a direct link to Mullins is not known.
"There's a bottomless pit of conspiracies surrounding the Federal Reserve," said the SPLC's Roy. "The great thing about hate is you can shop around for the pieces of the puzzle you're looking for. "It's a buffet of hate; you can build your own plate."

There are some people whose hearts are blacker than midnight, and I think even Satan himself, might turn him away from Hell. That leaves Sheboygan and Detriot.
