Ron Doggett addresses Harold Covington's continuing fraudulent use of his name

Ron Doggett with guest Dr. William Pierce, on Doggett's Race and Reality TV show in the 1990s.

"It's been brought to my attention that Harold Covington has used my name, once I was notified of about a year ago, in relation to supporting his efforts and his organization. He listed on his website comments attributed to me that were not my opinions, because I didn't make the comments.

"The second time it was brought to my attention was recently, a few days ago, that he is continuing this practice of using my name to support opinions favorable to him and his efforts and his writings, and I do not hold these opinions. They are not my opinions.

"I personally do not  have a favorable opinion of Harold Covington nor his cause at all. I reject them outright."

Deanna Spingola quizzes Harold Covington about Frank Collin

This uncomfortable exchange from the Spingola Special of 25 April 2013 was omitted from the interview as it appears on Harold Covington's website and other locations where Covington or his supporters have posted it. In other words, Covington did not like this.




Covington made a number of misleading statements in this eleven-minute segment, and it is not entirely clear that Deanna Spingola caught any of them, although she was undeterred from her central point.

The main point of contention was whether the father of Covington's former associate, Frank Collin, was a Jew, which all the world apart from Harold Covington seems to accept as fact.

Covington wants to blame the whole claim that Frank Collin's father was a Jew on a "rival N-S group" (obviously meaning the NSWPP), who according to Covington "created so-called fake immigration papers" showing Collin's father as a Jew. 

This excuse holds no water since, when the story first became public in 1970, Collin was still a member of the NSWPP; in fact he was the Midwest coordinator for the NSWPP under Matt Koehl.  It was a Chicago newspaper that produced the immigration papers, and it was not Matt Koehl but Collin's own father, Max Simon Collin, that Frank Collin was calling a liar.


If Max Collin is a liar, he has been deceiving people for no apparent reason for a long time. 

Max Collin was born, he says, as Max Simon Cohn in Munich, Germany, in 1913. He was and is, he attests, a Jew.  He was imprisoned for three months in 1938 in the infamous Dachau concentration camp, he says, because he was a Jew. 

That year, Collin says, he was released from Dachau and allowed to emigrate to the United States. He came to Chicago and in 1943 married a Roman Catholic girl named Virginia. In 1946 he changed his name legally to Max Collin. 

[...]

It was after [Frank Collin's] first arrest that  a Chicago newspaper (the Sun-Times) reported immigration records showed the Nazi leader's father was a Jew. Max and Virginia Collin confirmed it and said the fact had never been a secret from their son. Frank Collin insisted his father was a liar, although a well-meaning one. [UPI, 23 April 1970]


In fact it is not unique that a half-Jew like Frank Collin was a member of the NSWPP. George Lincoln Rockwell openly admitted on more than one occasion that a few specific members of his organization were Jews. (Collin however joined after Rockwell's death.)

To explain why she believes that Frank Collin is a half-Jew, Spingola decides to adduce something that Matt Koehl told her. Before she can say it, Covington pre-empts by attacking Koehl's credibility, suggesting that Koehl was not Rockwell's bona fide successor as head of the NSWPP. The diversion is successful, insofar as Spingola ends up not saying whatever she was going to say.

Free Lance-Star, 14 April 1967
When Spingola mentions that Koehl was Rockwell's successor, Covington responds: "Well he said he was. And, uh, the only actual documentation on that was a line in the last paragraph or so of White Power which we later learned was added in later editions."  Subsequently, Covington refers to Rockwell's death as a "murder mystery." With these remarks Covington is insinuating that Koehl lied about having been Rockwell's deputy-commander in order to become Rockwell's successor after killing him.*

In fact Matt Koehl was Rockwell's deputy-commander, and it is documented, in the form of a small item that appeared in a newspaper of Fredericksburg, Virginia on 14 April 1967, four months before Rockwell's death. I called attention to this item more than two years ago in my essay, On the Murder of George Lincoln Rockwell, which Covington has surely seen.

The murder-conspiracy canard is only one of a number of baseless accusations that Covington makes against Matt Koehl. 

While Covington pretends to demand a high standard of proof for establishing Frank Collin's Jewish ancestry, he shows an utter disregard for facts when making accusations against those whom he regards as competitors, or who have crossed him in some little way. It is perfectly clear, in regard to Covington, exactly what he says about others: that he doesn't care about the truth.
_______________________________
* Covington's murder-conspiracy smear against Matt Koehl is fully articulated in the so-called Brief History of the White Nationalist Movement (really a litany of libels promoted, distributed, and evidently written by Harold Covington) as follows:
The events immediately surrounding the death of Commander Rockwell are very murky. The NSWPP members allegedly went through the protocol of selecting a new leader, but many key members were not consulted. The majority of the members present in Arlington selected Major Matthias Koehl to succeed as the new NSWPP leader.

Koehl later claimed to be Rockwell’s hand-picked successor and “Deputy Commander,” but no official appointment to this particular post over Rockwell’s signature has ever been produced and so far as anyone recalls, Koehl never used such a title when Rockwell was alive. The reference to Koehl as “Deputy Commander” on the last page of White Power is a later addendum which does not appear in first editions of the book. There have been persistent rumors down through the years that on the night of Commander Rockwell’s murder, Captain Robert Lloyd and Dr. William Pierce broke into Commander Rockwell’s safe and destroyed his political testament. It is not known what this document contained. [quoted from A Brief History of the White Nationalist Movement, by famous liar Harold Anonymous Covington]

Letter to Harold Covington from Ed Steele (2004)

This letter from Ed Steele was posted on a Yahoo group by Martin Lindstedt. It confirms the contention of this blog, that Harold Covington is a reckless purveyor of libels.

It also confirms Tom Metzger's statement that Pastor Richard Butler and other original supporters of the "Northwest Imperative" from the 1980s were not in sympathy with Covington's effort, which is presented as a continuation of what they had formerly attempted. Pastor Butler evidently did not appreciate Covington's use of his name.

Harold -

A long time ago, you asked me if, after knowing others had dissed you to me, I had decided to dislike you. Remember my response? "No, Harold, only you can get me to do that."

I remained friendly with you all this time. While so many others tried to get me to dump on you, I defended you to them. I told them not to make the mistake of forcing me to choose between themselves and you. I even sent you money, now and again.

Though you maliciously have attacked so many that I respect, I still maintained friendly relations with you.

I haven't tried to cross swords with you, at all, Harold. I doubt that even you think so. Problem is, I haven't fallen totally into your column and that, to you, is the unforgivable sin . . . that I don't hate the people you hate.

Bringing you in? What on earth are you talking about, Harold? I asked your input on the draft of a piece I knew would be controversial, that's all. You, alone out of the entire racialist community, then chose to take a bite out of me.

"Come out?" As in "out of the closet?" And I'd "like" the Wilde reference -- oh, I get it -- because I must be a faggot, of course. That is beneath even you, Harold.[1]

The only thing that my friend Will Williams ever has taken me to task for was in defending you to him. That's it, pal. Just you. He told me to choose between the two of you and I told him to stuff it. Even so, we have remained on friendly terms.

I must be getting too old for this, because it was just a couple of weeks ago that I cautioned Walter Mueller about lying about something I had said, telling him that he was dangerously close to being the first in the Movement to get me to go after himm. Then he backed off and we established an uneasy truce.

Now it is you who misrepresents what I have said and maligns me for not attacking selected others alongside you, especially a man who has done so much for the Movement, including a just-finished term in jail.
[2]

Tell me, honestly, Harold - just what have you ever done for the Movement other than attempt to divide its members against themselves?

Even Pastor Butler, the one person you have yet to attack, tells me he doesn't know what to make of you because of this "Butler Plan" of yours, about which you never bothered to consult him.[3] He and I and another had lunch about a month ago. He still has no problem with me. Odd that you now have.

Strangely, this comes just at a time that the Jews have gone nearly berserk about me, reaching a new height of hysteria, between the JDL and my last few essays. If I were of a more paranoid nature, I might suspect a connection with your decision to move off and fire a few salvos my way. Of course, you know that so many have accused you of being a movement plant and, amazingly, even of being Jewish yourself.

Oddly, I am about the only one in "the Movement" that has been getting along with virtually everybody else. Not to mention almost literally the only one in the Movement getting along with you. Until today.

Today, you crossed the line.

1. Steele certainly should have known better than to say that making innuendoes of that sort was beneath Covington. The smears from Covington against Ben Klassen and Will Williams had been raging for 15 years.  

2. Covington made lying attacks on David Duke in a section of his Brief History that is addressed on this blog. That, however, represents only the tip an iceberg. Attacks on Duke that Covington posted on Yahoo groups while Duke was in prison go far beyond that.

3. Metzger wrote: "Boots on the ground White leaders then were Bob Miles, Richard Butler, Tom Metzger and a few others. [...] AWOL Racial right leaders -- made worse by the northern invasion of non-Whites and vast numbers of California social Marxists, plus their rich degenerate camp followers -- turned the Northwest Republic idea into nothing more than the fading hope of dreamers, or worse. That's when the three of us agreed: 'It's too late for the Northwest idea!' -- working class young White people should hunker down in those areas they know best, maintaining their social and economic networks in place."
