Willis Allison Carto (July 17, 1926 – October 26, 2015) was a figure on the American far right. He described himself as Jeffersonian and populist, but was primarily known for his promotion of antisemitic conspiracy theories and Holocaust denial.
Carto was considered to be one of America’s most influential political racial theorists through the Liberty Lobby and successor organizations which he helped create. Carto ran a group supporting segregationist George Wallace’s 1968 presidential campaign which formed the basis for the National Youth Alliance which promoted Francis Parker Yockey’s political philosophy. Carto helped found the Populist Party, which served as an electoral vehicle for White nationalist and Ku Klux Klan members, such as David Duke in 1988 and Christian Identity supporter Bo Gritz in 1992. Carto’s current American Free Press continues in the spirit of the Liberty Lobby’s The Spotlight, running columns by Joe Sobran, James Traficant, Paul Craig Roberts, Ron Paul, and others. It continues to promote alternative theories to the 9-11 attacks and support presidential candidates favoring individual liberty. Carto’s many other projects include the Institute for Historical Review, which promotes Holocaust denial.
