The Second Vermont Republic Founder, Thomas H. Naylor, Gives Another Interview to a Prominent Holocaust Denier
For years now hate groups have taken to naming their various enterprises by using misleading, innocuous, even patriotic sounding words that have little to do with their actual agenda. Groups like the Family Research Council or the American Family Association, both of which are virulently anti-gay and who seek to criminalize people based on sexuality are examples of such naming intended to hide the groups' hideous intent.
Another such hate group goes by name American Free Press. AFP is a weekly that is the successor to the notoriously anti-Semitic publication called The Spotlight, both founded by a promoter of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and blatant Holocaust denial, 86 year old Willis Carto. Carto has strong ties to the American neo-Nazi movement and has been an important figure in the promotion of the presidential aspirations of such infamous white supremacists and racists as George C. Wallace, David Duke and Pat Buchanan.  
AFP maintains a staff of writers steeped in anti-Semitism who, as a group, represent one of the most extreme examples of the toxic results that can be realized by people who see conspiracies everywhere. AFP operates like Vermont Commons on steroids. Like VC, AFP promotes books by writers befuddled by too much 9/11 Truth junk and droolly anti-Semitism, but Holocaust denial works seem to be AFP's real stock in trade. One of their writers, Victor Thorn, has published historical revisionist crap like The Holocaust Hoax Exposed: Debunking the 20th Century’s Biggest Lie available from a Holocaust denial press also operated by Willis Carto called The Barnes Review, named for the anti-Semite and Holocaust denier Harry Elmer Barnes, and Made in Israel: 9-11 and the Jewish Plot Against America
Today an article appeared in the August 28 issue of AFP written by Holocaust denier and anti-Semite Victor Thorn, based on his August 16, 2012 interview of the baas of the Second Vermont Republic, Thomas H. Naylor.
It certainly befits Victor Thorn, the espouser of numerous conspiracy addled facts, to make the claim in his article that,
"(T)here exist hundreds of secessionist organizations, a few of the more prominent ones combine an anti-authoritarian streak, disgust with electoral politics, tinges of anarchy and libertarianism, plus a repudiation of corporatism and the permanent U.S. war economy."Even Naylor's pal and co-founder of SVR, Kirkpatrick Sale, who keeps a list of such groups only shows there to be 30-35 with many of those having deadlinks, were listed as defunct or are essentially one person operations. Naylor runs through his list of tired, befuddled, secesher talking points with Thorn but does get around to the "Jews control the U.S." redmeat that Thorn was looking for with this,
"Today, the U.S. is owned, operated and controlled by corporations, the military-industrial complex and the Israeli lobby... Whether Obama or Romney wins in November, whenever Bibi [Netanyahu] says go to war, the U.S. will go for it.”This week at his own SVR website Naylor wrote,
"The hammerlock hold of the Israeli Lobby over American foreign policy..."So Naylor now gets to check off another must do on his bucket list of racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic, misogynistic, Holocaust denying and neo-Nazi figures, people, national and international organizations, and all around dirtbags, with his finally scoring an article in American Free Press.
Is it any wonder then, when people learn what's in his heart, why Naylor's secession dream now lies on the ash heap of history, much like the Nazis.
