#1731: Clifford Herrington

Clifford Herrington is the former head of the National Socialist Movement (NSM) and the husband of Andrea Herrington, a.k.a. Maxine Dietrich, whom we have encountered before. Herrington was, however, expelled – together with NSM media handler Bill White – from his own group when other members and patrons (in particular the notoriously unsavory Hal Turner and NSM chairman Jeff Schoep) discovered that NSM’s Tulsa post office box was shared by The Joy of Satan Ministry, Dietrich’s Satanist group, which did not sit well with the Christian Identity commitments of many white supremacists. The ensuing brouhaha was the kind of thing that people with normal social and intellectual abilities don’t usually find themselves in but which seemingly systematically happen to the craziest loon groups. The series of events is covered here. Herrington’s activities these days seem primarily to consist in producing anti-Semitic hate tracts and tweets, accusing various politicians of being Jewish or marionettes for Jewish conspiracies.

Diagnosis: It’s hard to take him too seriously and his influence seems to be negligible. We still felt he deserved to be mentioned.
