Paul Haecker

By Crosstar


He shunned the spotlight. Yet, he was a giant reflector of the

glistening rays of a shining cause. Paul Haecker, who succumbed to

heart-ailment at seventy-one, had been like a comet, with a

fiery-tail, illuminating the political-right. Yet, the "comet" had no

name, in that Haecker preferred largely to be anonymous. His meteoric

rise, from carpenter to social-reformer, encompassed the speaker's

platform in Forsyth County, Georgia, from which he fired-up sentiment

for segregation, to the Adams County Courthouse in Mississippi, where

he trounced the entire constabulary. In his final interview, Haecker

enunciated the case against the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan,

defending the honor of his country, slashed by the occupiers. He

wanted his country back.

Haecker spent much of his early life on the run. He would move, from

place to place, and send notes to authorities, taunting them to

locate him. He had a lifelong contempt for bureaucrats that he

regarded as oppressive or illegitimate, but exuded an abiding love

for his nation and people. Joe McNamee recalled first encountering

Haecker at a protest, in which Haecker was passing out pamphlets, but

standing off to the side. "I thought that he might be on the other

side. He did not come up into the main area," said McNamee. However,

Haecker eventually joined McNamee in the pioneering lawsuit, which

opened up public-buildings to Nationalists and catapulted rightists

from cow-pastures to courthouses. Haecker was known for his trademark

leather bomber-jacket.

Haecker would often be interviewed on television as the proverbial

"man on the street." A fierce opponent of George W. Bush, he worked

tirelessly to bring down the Republican Administration, which he had

condemned for its "war-criminality," and had been preparing to

broadcast to oust the Obama Administration. He had placed himself on

the line, when he signed affidavits to have Negroes arrested for

boycotting Americans, and was always ready to appear in court, on the

streets or in print. His unsigned editorials appeared in various

newspapers, although he had been banned by "Gannett" for endorsing

segregation. Haecker was a robust man, who would accost Communists,

Negroes and homosexuals, yet he would urge using the law and peaceful


McNamee recalled how, after winning a lawsuit against Natchez,

lifting the ban on a Nationalist parade, Haecker seemed reluctant to

talk to swarming reporters. Haecker explained that he had been

standing in front of a sign for the Natchez jail, which he didn't

want showing up in the shoot. Half-smiling, half-snarling, Haecker

would tick off the names of those who had ever wronged him and detail

how they had met their ends. However, he was just as avidly loyal to

his friends. He would quickly defend embattled Bill Allain,

Mississippi's last, Democratic-segregationist Governor, who had

blocked his extradition on a kidnaping charge. Haecker had been

active in the historic Confederate-flag campaign, but underscored

that "I am a Nationalist, not a sectionalist."

Haecker would often use "Americans-for-Justice" to publish names and

home-addresses of "enemies-of-the-people." Chip Derrington observed

that, although Haecker lacked formal education, "he would expound as

if he had a doctor's degree. He was the most-absorbing person you

could ever sit and listen to." Nationalists secured the dropping of

all charges against Haecker, whereupon Haecker built a small

woodland-house, tending his award-winning garden. He built the

headquarters of The Nationalist Movement, virtually single-handedly.

When the Clinton Race Board convened in Mississippi, Haecker staged a

protest outside the hall. When ordered by police to leave, he flopped

to the floor and declared that "you'll have to drag me out." He

stayed put.

Haecker had never been adept at computers, but had been trying to

cross the electronic-frontier. He had served as a "sounding-board,"

during the writing of "The Commission," the Nationalist textbook, and

his sons, Tim and Frank, were instrumental in the editing. Frank was

depicted in the work, participating in a protest against the Black

Caucus at Jackson City Hall. Haecker venerated his Viking heritage

and displayed various figures from Norse-lore around his home, which

had become a treasure-trove of rightist books and literature. When

stricken with heart-problems, Haecker would call Nationalists to take

him to the hospital, explaining that "others are too busy to care."

He enjoyed setting up ceremonies for youth, exclaiming that "they're

the future."
