Francis Parker Yockey (September 18, 1917 – June 16, 1960) was an American attorney, political philosopher and polemicist best known for his neo-Spenglerian book 'Imperium: The Philosophy of History and Politics', published under the pen name Ulick Varange in 1948. This book argues for a culture-based, totalitarian path for the preservation of Western culture.
Yockey actively supported many far-right causes around the world and remains one of the seminal influences of many White nationalist and New Right movements. Although he was a devotee of Oswald Spengler (who was critical of the Nazis), Yockey was a passionate proponent of anti-Semitism, and expressed a reverence for German National Socialism, and a general affinity for fascist causes. Yockey contacted or worked with the Nazi aligned German-American Bund. After the defeat of the Axis in the Second World War, Yockey became even more active in neo-Fascist causes.
Yockey believed that the United States was an engine of liberalism, controlled by Zionist Jews. Yockey also met Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, and wrote anti-Zionist propaganda on behalf of the Egyptian government, seeing the pan-Arab nationalist movement as another ally to challenge "the Jewish-American power." While in prison for falsified passports, he was visited by Willis Carto, who ultimately became the chief advocate and publisher of Yockey's writings.
