In the Des Moines Registry, Todd Blodgett, who used to monitor hate groups for the FBI, explains that not only does hate sell, it pays, and pays big. A snippet:
A full-time hater I monitored, the late Willis Carto, ran a media empire based on anti-Semitism with annual revenues exceeding $10 million during the seven years he and I were professionally associated. It’s NOT only hillbilly bigots or violent, tattooed, racist skinheads who support this putridity. The great-grand niece of inventor Thomas Edison, Jean Farrell, left $17 million to a Carto-controlled entity in the 1990s, to create doubt that the Holocaust never happened. From 1971 until the early 1990s, the former son-in-law of President Franklin Roosevelt, Curtis Dall, headed the Liberty Lobby, an organization that promoted anti-Semitism and white supremacy. Blaming Jews for societal strife has occurred since before William Shakespeare was born in 1564. But it’s now being stepped up, even in Iowa.
