Literature

He has distributed anti-Semitic and pro-Fascist literature by Sir Oswald Mosley, leading British Nazi, and Lincoln Rockwell, his American counterpart. More recently he has been the leading apologist for Dr. Verwoerd and Mr. Ian Smith.

Mr. Butler today claims that he no longer agrees with everything he has published ("Some of my best friends are Jews," he said recently).

However, late last year in a televised debate he defended his statements. He quoted a man of "authority" to show that there was actually an International Jewish Conspiracy. He explained that by "The Great Lie" he meant that the figure 6,000,000 was a gross exaggeration.

A lecturer in Political Science continually demanded that Mr. Butler give his estimate of deaths, and say whether he thought the murders were immoral.

Mr. Butler refused to answer.

A Jew in the audience leapt out and brandished in front of a camera a photograph of piles of dead bodies in a concentration camp. Mr. Butler looked disapproving.

The Jew said later that all his family had been killed in Auschwitz.

Both the Jew and the lecturer were told by a member of the League of Rights to "go back to their German-Jewish-Banker-Communist friends."
