The Bizarre Odyssey Of Frank Collin.
August 24, 2006 6:26 AM   Subscribe

Frank Collin. Just your average everyday half-Jewish Neo-Nazi pederast occult author. Former leader of the Neo-Nazi group that marched through the predominantly Jewish Chicago suburb of Skokie in 1977, triggering protests and court battles. Collin himself was half-Jewish, strangely. He later went to jail for child molestation and seems to have turned to writing books about witchcraft since his release. A truly strange story.

parmanparman: I don't believe anything this jerkoff says either. I just think his story is interesting.

Frank Joseph Collin went to jail for hiring underage boys and violating them and Illinois law.

That line kinda sticks out.

That More Info link is anti-semetic BS as well

I know, I figure I'd let it discredit itself, but it gives a rough chronology of the whole sordid saga.

There's a strange historical connection between Nazis (and the higher echelons of neo-nazis) and witchcraft, for some reason. I guess that once you base your world-view on some hermeneutical notion of racial superiority, you'll be willing to believe anything.

Isn't "half-Jewish" like "half-pregnant"? I was under the impression that you were Jewish if your mother was, or else you weren't. Am I wrong?

If they ever make a movie about this guy, the credits better roll with "Today Your Love, Tomorrow the World."

OH I'm a shock trooper in a stupor, yes I am...

Drinkcoffee, to be considered Jewish in terms of the religion your mother has to be Jewish, but many/most/more people consider it an ethnicity.

In case you're wondering this is called a syllepsis.

George_Spiggott is a beautiful writer, one who can turn a head as well as a phrase.
