|Carlos Whitlock Porter|
A letter purporting to be from Carlos Whitlock Porter, author of Not Guilty at Nuremberg and The Truth about Rhodesia, appeared in Harold Covington's free Resistance newsletter on the occasion of Hitler's birthday in 1997:
Sorry, still have trouble with the nom de plume. In any case, my heartiest best wishes to you on this Fuhrertag*, from an ex-member of the "Wicked Winston Chorus" (used to be "Hate Harold Chorus"). I am impressed with your dedication and your indefatigable persistence in the face of all the years of harassment and abuse you have gone through, and I regret my own past contributions to your detractors. You are one of the most powerful racial presences on the Internet today.
Carlos W. Porter
Belgium ["Porter to Covington," Shofar FTP]
This piece was subsequently republished by the anti-Revisionist organization Nizkor. Porter complained bitterly to Nizkor that he had not written the letter:
I then discovered that one of the most prominent items in the Nizkoprophagic spy and lie files on me, featured very prominently and still there, 2½ years later [in 1999], is an alleged “letter” to Harold Covington dated 20 April 1997 which I did not write and had never before seen.
I complained to Nizkor immediately, denying that I wrote it, demanding a retraction and an apology. No answer. I complained repeatedly. No answer. I also pointed out certain errors in their other files on me. No answer.
I repeat: I did not write the letter in question, I complained about it repeatedly, and it is still there. [The Website of Carlos Whitlock Porter]
Nizkor has never removed the letter.
Covington's bizarre response, when Porter contacted him for assistance in convincing Nizkor that the letter was fake, was to maintain to Porter that he was an imposter and that the real Carlos Whitlock Porter had died several years earlier!**
Other such letters to Harold Covington purporting to be from prominent people should be judged with these facts in mind.
* One of the giveaways that this was a forgery is that Carlos Porter, a linguist, knew how to spell Fuehrer or Führer but Covington did not and still has not learned it. Covington made the same mistake when he forged a post on his blog that he attributed to me (as I documented in the post of 24 June 2011).
** VHO's biography of Porter indicates that he is still alive and resides in Belgium.
