One More Problem With That 1976 Holocaust Denial Edition of Reason

Namely, an ad for a neo-Nazi book.
Wingnuts • Views: 16,910

Enough has been written on the “who is who in Holocaust denial” edition of the Reason magazine:

Awful: Reason Magazine’s 1976 Holocaust Denial “Special Issue”
Reason Magazine Addresses That 1976 “Holocaust Denial Edition”

What follows is just a little footnote to that story.

On p.53 of that issue we see an ad for “The Veritas Reading Club”, a subsidiary of Devin-Adair Publishing Company. An assortment of various crackpot books is presented (Darwin was wrong! The Czar and his family weren’t executed! Coming race war in South Africa! etc.). One of the books on the list is Wilmot Robertson’s (John Humphrey Ireland’s pseudonym) The Dispossessed Majority.

Here’s a copy of the 1996 edition:
archive.org

On page 161 we learn that the author is a hardcore Holocaust denier.
On page 191 he faults Jews for everything, from communism to integration.
On page 234 he recommends deporting all blacks to Africa.

Lest you think that the earlier editions were somehow more moderate, one researcher described the 1972 edition of this book as “the new bible for the American racist right”.

David Duke called it “the most important book since the Second World War”.

Robertson-Ireland also published the infamous neo-Nazi magazine Instauration, which constituted regular “updates” to the book:

For those who approve of eugenics, historical revisionism, and discussions of the racial makeup of populations, the writing of Instauration was very pleasing. But many would characterize the publication as promoting racism and Holocaust denial. Instauration also published numerous articles arguing that Christianity was a contrived religion. [wiki]

All the issues of the magazine are available online, so it’s easy to verify that they are full of the most vulgar white supremacist and antisemitic tripe.
