Was Fletcher Prouty an Antisemite? Part Two
Updated: Apr 17
I noted Prouty's association with the Liberty Lobby, an organization founded by Willis Carto who believed that the Jews were “public enemy number one.”
This caused some controversy when Oliver Stone's film JFK was released. Stone repeatedly excused Prouty, noting in one forum that “he never made any single one anti-semitic comment” and that “he joined the Liberty Lobby late in life.”

Here is the letter:
The offensive material is found on the first page:
The letter discusses the problems of military technology. Note the second paragraph: "Suppose the guy running it is a Jewish Sgt.?"
