#Quote
1Being prepared to die is one of the great secrets of living.
2We must never again let America be led into a fratricidal war like the last two world wars, for the sake of alien, minority interests.
3A leopard doesn't change his spots just because you bring him in from the jungle and try to housebreak him and turn him into a pet. He may learn to sheathe his claws in order to beg a few scraps off the dinner table, and you may teach him to be a beast of burden, but it doesn't pay to forget that he'll always be what he was born: a wild animal.
4I don't believe in democracy. In the second place, neither did our white forefathers. I believe, as they did, in a republican authoritarian republic with a limited electorate -- just like the one the writers of our Constitution meant this country to be. When these white Christian patriots sat down to write the Declaration of Independence, there were no black citizens for them to worry about.
5We must put an end to both economic freeloading and economic exploitation in America. There must be no place for parasites who draw their sustenance from society without giving anything in return.
#Fact
1His ashes are interred in the memorial room at the headquarters of The New Order in New Berlin, Wisconsin. [January 2010]
2He established the American Nazi Party "Stormtrooper Barracks" in a two-story house at 6150 Wilson Boulevard, in the Dominion Hills district of Arlington, Virginia. The house has since been razed and the property has been incorporated into the Upton Hill Regional Park. The site of the building is now a pavilion of picnic tables.
3When the "Freedom Riders" were holding sit-down demonstrations to desegregate bus stations in the Deep South, Rockwell obtained a Volkswagen van for the American Nazi Party, personally painted it with swastikas and white supremacist slogans, and dubbed it the "Hate Bus". He frequently rode in it to speaking engagements and party rallies. (The van was later repossessed after he defaulted on a loan.) Later, the "hippies" (whom Rockwell openly despised) would adopt the Volkswagen van as the "Love Bus", decorating them with peace signs, anti-war slogans and psychedelic designs.
4Son of vaudeville comic "Doc" Rockwell. George's promotion of anti-Semetic ideology brought great embarressment to the family, since many of "Doc" Rockwell's fellow performers were Jewish.
5Worked as an illustrator, cartoonist, sign painter and photographer; talents he used as a propagandist for his political cause.
6Despite his service in the US Navy as a pilot, he was denied burial in Arlington National Cemetery because his followers refused to remove their swastika armbands during the internment ceremony and insisted on having a Nazi flag draped over his coffin.
7The location Rockwell established as the headquarters of his American Nazi Party was at 928 North Randolph Street in Arlington, Virginia's Ballston district. It is now a the site of an office building and hotel complex. The last location of the party's headquarters in Arlington after Rockwell's death was 2507 North Franklin Road, now the site of "The Java Shack", a coffee shop serving a racially diverse community.
8Had a series of portrait photographs taken by Presidential portrait experts Harris & Ewing.
9After his 1966 Playboy interview was published he became one of the most popular speakers on the American college lecture circuit. By 1967 he was making as much as $2000 a week.
10Coined the phrase "White Power" shortly after Stokely Carmichael came up with "Black Power".
11Was shot and killed outside a coin-operated laundromat in Arlington, Virginia by John Patler, the editor and illustrator for the party's newsletter, "The Stormtrooper". Rockwell himself expelled Palter from the party after he was accused of "Bolshevik leanings" and inserting Marxist propaganda in the party's newsletter.
12He ran for public office twice, and lost by large margins each time. In 1964 he ran as a write-in candidate in the U.S. Presidential election, receiving 212 votes. In 1965 he ran for Governor of Virginia as an independent candidate, finishing fourth out of four candidates, with a total of 5,730 votes (1.02 percent of all votes cast).
13Was interviewed for Playboy Magazine (April 1966) by Alex Haley, a black man. Rockwell consented to the interview on the condition that the interviewer not be Jewish (He said nothing about his race). Part of the interview was dramatized, with Marlon Brando playing Rockwell, in the mini-series, "Roots: The Next Generations" (1979) (mini).
