Remembering Francis Parker Yockey
(September 18, 1917–June 16, 1960)

480 words

Francis Parker Yockey was born 103 years ago today, September 18, in Chicago. He died in San Francisco on June 16, 1960, an apparent suicide. Yockey is one of America’s greatest anti-liberal thinkers and an abiding influence on the North American New Right. In honor of his birthday, I wish to draw the reader’s attention to the following works on this site.

    I was given an original copy of Imperium as a child. I read it, but it took years for me to really appreciate the context and references. I now have it as an audio book and have listened to it dozens and dozens of times. I still even now marvel at it’s depth and mange to come away with something new every time I approach it. Yockey was an amazing talent.

    “An apparent suicide.”
    Reach out for help you f… fools. Don’t hang up that phone. Ask for help. Idiots, selfish idiots.
    There’s no stopping a Phil Haney. But for anyone else, there are a lot of people who will reach out to help you. Don’t let humiliation get in the way. Unsuspected people will take your call again and again. Keep making those calls. Don’t lose heart! They’re busy, tired? Ask them who THEY would call.

    Later, it will not be your absence, but the self-doubt:. Why did my friend, my cousin, my son kill themselves? Am I WORTH IT? There is something wrong that will gnaw at them for years. That doubt will cruelly torment them long after all your problems are ‘solved’.

      Nice advice in general, but I assume that you do not know the background of the Yockey matter (unless this is some type of piss-take that I haven’t understood?).

        Dear Dr. Bolton,
        Your book on Yockey is a masterpiece. Thank you
