ALEX HALEY, interviewer: Having disposed of Jews and Negroes, would that complete your list of those slotted for removal?
GEORGE LINCOLN ROCKWELL, founder of the American Nazi Party: Not quite. I’d also purge the queers. I despise them worst of all. They’re one of the ugliest problems of our society, and they must be removed – I don’t know if with gas, or what, just so they don’t poison society. If they insist on being queers, put them on some island maybe – but certainly not around the rest of society. They’re the ultimate symbol of a decaying civilization.
