Spotlight

The Spotlight serves as a kind of bulletin board for far-right extremists, warning about black helicopters, gun control, and the latest conspiracy of the federal government toward it citizens.

The Spotlight is the weekly tabloid propaganda tool for the Liberty Lobby, the largest, best-financed, and most powerful radical-right organization in the United States. Editorial content emphasizes a host of conspiracy theories involving the federal government and attacks such issues as national gun control and United Nations efforts to assume control over the United States. Articles on mind control by secret agencies and the maneuvers of black helicopters used by the shadow government are regular fare.

The Liberty Lobby was founded in 1955 by Willis Carto, who believes that Hitler’s Nazi Germany should have won World War II so that Europe and America could have been saved from the influence of international secret societies of Jews. Even Satan, Carto pontificates, could have created no more effective agency for the destruction of the world’s nations than the Jews. African Americans and people of color fare no better. Carto uses the Spotlight to educate more whites to the dangers of the “niggerfication” of America.

Carto’s ultimate goal as a neo-Nazi is to reinvent Hitler’s National Socialism on American soil. While he protests that the Liberty Lobby is a respectable conservative party, major conservative spokespeople such as William Buckley and Judge Robert Bork roundly condemn the group for its anti-Semitism and racism.
