A racist magazine called Instauration (now defunct) described Scandinavians as the pinnacle of beauty; “the thin, fair and symmetric race originating in Northern Europe.” Joseph Sobran praised Instauration in the New York City Tribune on May 13, 1986, even though he admitted it “is openly and almost unremittingly hostile to blacks, Jews, and Mexicans and Oriental immigrants.” That’s an understatement. Instauration even favored abortion as a means of controlling the black population. Instauration returned Sobran’s compliment in September of that year in an editorial entitled “The Brave Pen of Joseph Sobran,” saying, “The man has repeatedly defended white racial pride and solidarity, despite the mounting campaign to get him.”
In a review of the movie Schindler’s List, Sobran complained about “all this Holocaust-harping,” explaining that the genocide of six million Jews was largely an overreaction to “Jewish-led communist movements.” (Arizona Republic, 3/24/94) Sobran believes that the New York Times “really ought to change its name to Holocaust Update.” (New Republic, 8/11/86) There’s much more here. Joseph Sobran is such a virulent anti-Semite that he was fired from National Review magazine. He has also been a keynote speaker for the Institute for Historical Review, one of the major organizations dedicated to holocaust denial.
What does this have to do with Howard and Doug Phillips, you ask? Joseph Sobran was the Constitution Party’s nominee for vice-president in the year 2000. At the top of the ticket was Howard Phillips. Doug Phillips promotes the Constitution Party as a worthy recipient of a Christian’s vote.
