Francis Parker Yockey(1917 - 1960) was an American writer during and after World War II associated with Nazism. He believed that a leftist force was taking control of the American mind by utilizing the "spiritual control" of media, and that the youth of America were being wrapped up in a Communist Plot. He called for a Christian conservative uprising. His book Imperium outlined his view of the existence of a growing western empire supported by Propaganda. He denied the existence of The Death Camps and had ties to the Nazi intelligence, for which he lost his citizenship. He was aprehended by the FBI in 1960 and died several days later of an ingested cyanide tablet.
