Is Ann Clouter The Daughter Of The American Nazi Party?

I've been reading the book Hate by William H. Schmatlz of Stillwater. The book is a biography of George Lincoln Rockwell and the American Nazi Party he founded. Rockwell was a major figure in the US hate group scene, rising to prominence in the 1950s and 60s. He was assassinated by one of his former followers in 1967.

With all the hype and talked about how vicious the speech of Ann Clouter is, I couldn't help but notice some parallels between Clouter and Rockwell. Here's an interesting quote from the Hate book on a stop Rockwell make in Appleton, Wisconsin in 1952:

"In 1952 Rockwell, still a naval officer, received orders to report to Norfolk, Virginia for further assignment. The family packed up the Nash and headed east, taking their time driving across the United States, camping in national parks, taking in the sights. He choose a northerly route so he could make a pilgrimage to Appleton, Wisconsin -- Joe McCarthy's hometown."

Check out this picture of Ann Clouter taken in a cemetery in Appleton, Wisconsin:

Notice the name on the headstone?

The similarities don't stop with the picture. There are many quotes by the two that ring a similar, often times, hateful note. Here's a couple such quotes:

"We must have a foreign policy which is based only on the long-term interests of our race, not on the interest of other races or on economic considerations or anything else."
-- George Lincoln Rockwell

"We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war."
-- Ann Coulter

I'm not sure the Rockwell would appreciate Clouter's comments about Hitler, but I'm sure he heartily agree with the implications.

I find in very disturbing that the rhetoric being pitched by the high profile spokespeople for the current day conservative movement is so vicious. If Barry Goldwater were alive today Clouter and Rush Limbaugh would be calling Goldwater a lefty and a RINO.
