American Nazi Rockwell Meets British Counterpart

Aug. 6, 1962 - Colin Jordan (pictured), the leader of the British National Socialist Movement, said today that George Lincoln Rockwell, head of the American Nazi party, had whipped up considerable enthusiasm among Britons with similar ideas. Mr. Jordan, whose tiny movement is against Jews and in favor of expelling nonwhite immigrants from Britain, said this was demonstrated over the weekend when Mr. Rockwell visited a fascist-style camp that his movement had set up in rural Gloucestershire. Mr. Rockwell’s presence in Britain evoked anger, controversy, and speculation in the British press this morning. The Home Office announced today that the American Nazi leader had managed to elude an official ban and get into Britain to attend a rally at the camp Sunday.
