James Mason (neo-Nazi)

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

James Nolan Mason (born July 25, 1952[1]) is an American neo-Nazi. He grew up in Chillicothe, Ohio. When he was 14 years old, he began communicating with George Lincoln Rockwell's American Nazi Party and became a youth member until his 18th birthday, when he was sworn into the renamed National Socialist White People's Party. In the 1970s he was involved with the National Socialist Liberation Front. He later formed the Universal Order.

He edited, wrote, and published a newsletter titled Siege throughout the early to mid-1980s. Its contents were edited and published by Michael Moynihan as Siege: The Collected Writings of James Mason. He advocated leaderless resistance, calling for autonomous action by individuals rather than an authoritarian hierarchical organization.[2]

Universal Order is the name of a neo-Nazi "operational front" founded by James Mason. Growing out of the National Socialist Liberation Front, Mason founded the order in the early 1980s following the advice of Charles Manson, leader of the mass-murder cult "The Family". Not only did Manson suggest the name, but he also designed the logo used by the group, a swastika superimposed over the scales of justice.[3][better source needed]

As its leaders it recognized a lineage of Adolf Hitler, George Lincoln Rockwell, Joseph Tommasi, and Charles Manson. It later focused on presenting a National Socialist perspective on the paranormal. The ideology of the paramilitary Neo-Nazi terrorist organization Atomwaffen Division is based on that of Mason.
