The disgusting text in italics below was written by L. Craig Fraser for a book called THE TESTAMENT OF ADOLF HITLER. – April 1945: L. Craig Fraser edition, circa 1972 page 58 (xiii).
“The document you are about to read is one of great historical importance to the White men of the world. It is Hitler’s political testament, the last earthly thoughts of this great White racial leader— the last window to be opened into the phenomenal mind of Adolf Hitler.
And what a mind Hitler had! Surely even his enemies, the anti-Christ Jews, will admit to the superiority of his mental powers. To deny this, to say (as some say) that ”he was a mere froth casually thrown up by the swirling waters of social change” is a desperate attempt by pseudo-intellectuals, who rarely emerge from the gloom of their libraries into the light of day, to belittle a man who was a phoenix in human history. A man who inaugurated the final struggle of the White man, the Aryan, for mastery of the earth— one of those rare and remarkable personalities who appear but once in thousands of years to give despairing mankind a new symbol of hope and renewal. Even if one does not accept this estimate of Hitler, he must admit that Hitler did what no other man in our history has done. He devised, made, and carried out a White racial revolution from start to finish, from nothing to world empire. He attempted what no other man in history dared think of— disinfect the West, lance the Communist abscess, and get rid of the Jewish poison. THERE IS NO PARALLEL OF SUCH A REMARKABLE FIGURE IN ALL OF HISTORY.” L. Craig Fraser
The book is still available for sale on Amazon. In fact when you Google the name L. Craig Fraser you will see a lot of links to this book and other links to more racist rants. I did not copy the entire introduction by L. Craig Fraser for this book because it is too long, but you can view the full text version of the introduction here.
He also wrote the introduction to the book Twilight Over England – The Path to Democracy Is the Road to Oblivion by William Joyce, a Nazi radio propagandist during World War II. Click here to read his introduction to that book where he refers to Jewish people as a “virus spreading across Europe”.
So by this point you are probably asking why a book introduction from the 1970’s by a Neo-Nazi named L. Craig Fraser is relevant in 2015?
Because L. Craig Fraser is the current District Attorney for the Dublin Judicial circuit serving Laurens, Treutlen, Twiggs and Johnson Counties in Georgia!
Yes, you read that correctly a person that wrote an introduction in a book praising Adolf Hitler was elected as the District Attorney. In case you are wondering why this has never come out before now, it has and he still won!
In an odd coincidence there is another Craig Fraser in England that is the leader of the racist radicals as a fitness instructor and author.
I found this AP article from fifteen years ago. But what I found very interesting is the article didn’t include much of the text above or go in to much detail. This would have made national headlines had it happened this year, just ask the University of Oklahoma’s now defunct SAE fraternity.
The old article seemed to downplay these past racist statements as ancient history even though it wasn’t all that long ago. This is the mid 1970’s while some were watching the Brady Bunch on TV, Craig Fraser was busy singing the praises of Hitler in books. It even included a quote from a prominent black community member saying he was forgiven as proof that he was a “changed man”. I am not so easily convinced by contrived remorse.
The article did mention that L. Craig Fraser campaigned during the 1970s for white supremacist gubernatorial candidate J.B. Stoner and wrote anti-Semitic material for so-called hate groups. To put your name on a book praising Adolf Hitler requires a degree of hatred that makes his magical transformation look rather dubious and convenient. You are no longer a kid in your 20’s and your views are well-formed by that age. A manufactured apology à la Jimmy Swaggart is hardly convincing proof that he truly left those views behind. You don’t go from thinking Hitler was a hero to a zero quite that quickly.
The slogan he ran on to become D.A. is “Prayer is not a Crime” and it is still on his website– he hung that sign up across from the courthouse on top of one of the buildings there. I am sure many of the victims Hitler exterminated in the Holocaust also prayed before they were corralled to their deaths in gas chambers at places like Auschwitz. I especially wonder what WWII vets in Dublin felt about this revelation about their D.A.’s past hero.
Local residents in Dublin may remember a big production of Fraser going to each and every one of the black churches and speaking and saying that he had sinned and that he has repented and that he was a new man and cannot be held to what he wrote in his 20’s. As far as he is concerned, he has made right with the community, made right with his family and made right with himself — but most important, he has made right with God and God has forgiven him. If Jesus can forgive him, then why shouldn’t we?
That is a valid question, but his introduction to a book praising Hitler is a far cry from saying the n-word a few times in your 20’s. This was not a some careless slip up. This was a very deliberative process that took a lot of contemplation and time to write. This was far more heinous than singing some racist chant at a party where you think no one else will hear. He wrote a book introduction because he wanted the entire world to know that he thought Hitler was a “remarkable man”. The SAE idiots never thought in a million years anyone would hear them. Big difference. Ever notice how people only appear to be truly sorry when they get caught?
2015 is a very different time than the 1970’s or even the year 2000 when these revelations were dismissed as unimportant. Mr. Fraser didn’t break any laws with his writing, but is he really the best person Laurens County can find to be their District Attorney? I would hate to be a Jewish defendant with him as the prosecutor with this knowledge.
How low do you have to set the bar not to be able to find a lawyer that hasn’t supported a white supremacist for Governor or hasn’t written an introduction praising Adolf Hitler or isn’t an alcoholic? The defeated opponent claimed he had gone to AA and hadn’t touched a drop in years but Fraser in a debate still used that against him by saying they needed “sober” leadership. Why shouldn’t that same standard be applied to a “reformed” racist? What blatant hypocrisy that he expects forgiveness and yet bashes his opponent for being an alcoholic years earlier therefore offering no forgiveness.
I want to make it perfectly clear that I think former Neo-Nazi’s and skinheads can transform their views and turn their lives around. Watch this interview with Christian Picciolini, a former skinhead leader who has now dedicated his life to combating hate through peaceful means. TJ Leyden is another great example of a reformed member of the Hammerskin Nation, one of the largest and oldest neo-Nazi racist skinhead groups. Watch his powerful video and there will be little doubt he is remorseful and a changed man. Another reformed skinhead, Bryon Widner was so desperate to rid himself of the racist tattoos that covered his face — so desperate that he turned to former enemies for help, and was willing to endure months of pain. All three of these men are spending the remainder of their lives actively fighting hate.
L. Craig Fraser has done none of those things. Where are his introduction to books condemning those movements for example. Besides an apology tour to a few black churches AFTER his old writings were made public, I haven’t found any evidence that he has done much to actively fight or speak out against Neo-Nazi’s, racism, homophobia, or anti-Semitism in a meaningful or impactful way.
Fast Forward Dublin, Georgia – Middle of the Bible Belt – Early Year 2015
While driving into Dublin, GA this is a billboard you might see. The words say “Joe McCarthy; a True American Hero: Right All Along.” That’s scary as hell . The “trailer” on which it is draped is an old Evan’s Cabinet Company cabinet-moving-trailer. It is sitting on Evans Cabinet Company property. The company is owned by Clyde Evans a wealthy local businessman who is very politically involved.
Dublin Public School White Teacher tells her 13-year old black students that Obama is not a Christian – which is a type of social “death” sentence in the Bible Belt.
Dublin Public School White Teacher tells black students that if any of their black parents voted for Obama, then their black parents are not Christian — which is a type of social “death” sentence in the Bible Belt.
Dublin Public School White Teacher’s Board of Education White Husband sits in on the black parents’ “parent-teacher” conference and has ready at hand a list of seven reasons our President is not a Christian – again, which is a type of social “death” sentence in the Bible Belt.
Dublin Public School White Teacher’s Board of Education White Husband has a “side job” of letting people know his right-wing views on political issues, such as the peril of gay marriage – again, “being called gay in the Bible Belt” – it is a social “death” sentence in the Bible Belt.
Dublin Public School White Teacher and her White Husband’s close friend and prominent white business man – supports the Public School Teacher’s religious condemnation of our President – calling out our President as “not a Christian” – which is a social “death” sentence in the Bible Belt.
Dublin Public School White Teacher and her White Husband’s close friend and prominent white business man – says he doesn’t talk to Obama voters, but when he does, he orders Large Fries.
Dublin Board of Education White Husband of the Obama-is-no-Christian White Teacher – he has promised us all a “strong” rebuttal in defense of his White wife who has judged our Black President as no Christian – which is a social “death” sentence in the Bible Belt.
Dublin White Superintendent says this is all just a “slap on the wrist” situation and that it will not happen again. Read “Shut Up!” The teacher will not be fired! The husband on the board of eduction will not be ushered out!
Dublin White District Attorney – who wrote the preface to “The Testament of Adolf Hitler” and whose first sentence in such preface was and is, “The document you are about to read is one of great historical importance to the White men of the world.”
Silence from any sane voices from the Dublin Community.
And people in Dublin ask why the NAACP is involved when a white teacher asks her black students to prove their Christianity to her because the black President their black parents voted is not Christian, does evil and, if their black parents voted for our first black President – then their black parents are no Christians either – which is a social “death” sentence in the Bible Belt.
What is going on in Dublin, Georgia? Looks like this is a long standing STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE. How long has this been going on and why isn’t more being said against it?
I want to end this article by saying that I know there are a lot of good people in Dublin. I know the town and the people well and have many friends in the community. This article is not meant to attack all the people in Dublin or Laurens County. I would even say that the vast majority of white people in Laurens county are good and decent people that are just as appalled as many others outside the county when they learned the facts about the Nancy Price and their D.A.
But, for too long a cancer has been allowed to spread in Dublin unchallenged and unfettered and it’s time it was excised. This racist and religious bigotry evident in people in positions of power is an embarrassment to Laurens County and all vestiges need to be removed. The good people of conscience can no longer afford to sit back and quietly tolerate this behavior.
How can we forget the past when that same mentality still tramples over those less powerful in the Dublin community to this day? Will the Real Dublin, Georgia please stand up and do something about it? Let your voices be heard. Use the most powerful weapon you have which is your right to vote.
If the good people of Dublin want things to change, it is time to speak up against racism, against homophobia, against anti-Semitism, and any other forms of discriminatory and backwards thinking. Stop electing these people into office.
Welcome to 2015.

Also curious to note on what appears to be an old campaign website there is a message at the bottom advertising how to order abortion pills online. The link takes you to a broken website but rather odd to see nonetheless. Screenshot below.
This is pretty incredible stuff. It doesn’t matter if this stuff came out in 2000, like you said that linked AP article seemed to give this douchebag a free pass. This story needs to go national because it doesn’t look like the people in Dublin give a crap that they have a few right wing neo-nazis running things down there.
It’s not The People so much as the political landscape in Dublin. No one has run against Craig since he ran against Ralph Walke and won. Only one has run against Bill Harrell, the Sheriff, since he was elected (that would be me). Now, Carson Knight and Grady Toney (both staffers of Sheriff Kenny Webb, who retired) were in a race with Bill in 2004. Bill ran against Kenny in 2000 and was defeated, but was elected in 2004. Each of these campaigns was full of smear tactics and there are some deep seeded hatreds here. In my particular case there was a mysterious “false fire alarm” during the count and everyone left the courthouse. I haven’t pushed this issue, and won’t, but I was told 3 days before the election how many votes Tim Lewis and I would each get. Curiouser and curiouser.
Many folks here are just plain afraid of speaking out because of harassment or fear of losing business. Both Bill and Craig are “good ol’ boys” and that network runs deep here. Piss one off and you piss ’em all off.
I’m Scots/Irish, and very proud of my ancestry. I do a lot of research about the Scots and the Irish. I find it incredibly telling in this situation that Dublin is a compound word in Old Irish. It consists of two words, dubh (dark) and lind (pool). It’s a nickname. The actual name of the Dublin in Ireland is Baile Átha Cliath.
So, welcome to the “Dark Pool” Alan, welcome. Maybe we can lighten the waters a little bit.
Holy Hell! At first I thought this article was complete sensational bullshit. I thought no way in hell that could be true. I figured it was a different Craig Fraser. But the AP article you linked proved it is the same guy and so did my own google search. That is the same guy! How the hell did this guy get elected in 2000 and reelected many times after that? That is crazy!!!!!! And then I saw that McCarthy sign and read about the racist teacher that thought Obama supporters can’t be Christian which she told to a 13 year old black student in an art class and now I understand. Damn that town is like something out of the 1950’s.
Correct me if I am wrong but isn’t Dubose Porter the owner of the newspaper there? The same Dubose Porter that is the chairman of the Democratic party of Georgia? https://twitter.com/DPGChair If this is the same guy, why the hell hasn’t his paper been all over this story like white on rice? I looked for other articles besides the one you linked by the AP from an Athens, GA paper in 2000 and found zilch. The AP story was very weak and dismissive but why nothing from the Dublin paper since Porter owns it. This is a huge story so why hasn’t anyone outside of Dublin heard about this before now? How many times was he reelected?
After you comment I did another search Cyndi and did find an article from the Dublin newspaper that I included at the very bottom of the article. But it still fell short of what I did of including the full text of the introduction. I also found a few other old articles as well. I too would like to know why Dubose Porter sat on this. Could it have something to do with Craig Fraser claiming to be a Democrat? We do not need that type of Democrat in our party and I will go after them even harder than I would a Republican.
You notice the situation with the Killing of David Hooks isn’t getting much press in Laurens County. The Sheriff just happens to be a Democrat also. Things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmmm.
And why is Craig Fraser afraid to put the incident in front of a Grand Jury himself? Why does he have to pass it off to the Attorney General? I have a “theory” about that. With all the controversy over the search warrant and how it was obtained, many have overlooked that Craig’s Office “blessed” the affidavit before it ever went to the Magistrate Faith Snell. Maybe. just maybe, Craig is trying to cover his OWN ass. Things that make ya go whaaaaaaaaat?
The “totality of circumstances” surrounding this case needs to be put in front of a LAURENS COUNTY Grand Jury and Craig’s part in that process needs to be minimized. Mr. Paul Nally, a former law enforcement officer and Judge, tried to speak to the Grand Jury about their awesome powers and responsibilities. One of our Superior Court Judges got wind of it, interrupted the Grand Jury, called them before him, and stopped Mr. Nally from speaking. That speaks volumes to me. Things that make you go DAYUM!!
And how about T.V. 35, Dublin’s local television station. NOT ONE PEEP from those folks. I went to them and asked them to cover the last rally we held for David. They said “We have to report the news responsibly and we will wait for the GBI report.” Well, the GBI report has been out for a “minute” and the Deal Brothers are still silent on the matter. Things that make you go WTF?
We have a Sheriff that led a raid on an innocent man’s home in the middle of the night and killed him (though he didn’t pull the trigger), a DA with Nazi proclivities (though he says he’s reformed) that’s passing the buck, a newspaper that will not report anything about it except what the Sheriff has to say and a television station that either doesn’t care or is scared shitless to say anything.
Now, all of these things are FACTS Ladies and Gentlemen. Just ask the right question in the right place and you can find out TONS about what goes on here. Welcome to the Rabbit Hole.
Here ya go Cindy. Herald Publishing owns 8 newspapers in Middle Georgia. DuBose Porter is an owner of Herald Publishing. DuBose Porter is the Chairman of the Democratic Party of Georgia. What kind of coverage do you think “bad democrats” get in Middle Georgia?
Alan Wood, thank you for reporting on the genuine sorts of deeply intentional racism and anti-Semitism that still apparently lurk in Middle Georgia without serious consideration. I also agree with Cyndi Kauffman that DuBose Porter has some ‘splaining to do about this longstanding situation from the media’s perspective. While others in the media are hotly highlighting instances of so-called micro-aggressions that amount to nothing, meanwhile undermining the significance of truly substantive matters, Alan Wood is pointing out an unmistakable racial and anti-Semitic macro-aggression that calls for serious attention by everyone. As a lawyer and law professor, my instinct is that this situation may fairly call into question several prosecutions and plea “deals” that prosecutor Fraser may have improperly forced on account of prejudice. Prisoners and defense counsel, it may be wise to review some of your thought-dead files and begin considering the fine points of the law concerning re-opening supposedly-closed cases in circumstances of apparent racial and religious animus. Let me know if you need some help.
Thanks for your comment Professor Oedel. I sent a tweet of your comment to Catherine Bernard. She was a public defender in the Dublin circuit. I am not sure if she still is practicing in Dublin. Here are a few contact links https://www.facebook.com/Catherine4GA and also http://www.spartacuslegal.org
The President is Muslim, not Christian. For someone who would suffer from “social death”, how did he get elected twice?
No the President is a Christian. If you believe he is a Muslim you are either delusional or an idiot. By the way he is also elected by the whole country and not only Dublin, GA.
