Why Was Leo Frank Lynched?

Published by on August 14, 2017

Why Was Leo Frank Lynched? thumbnail

WE ARE approaching the 102nd anniversary of the lynching of Leo Frank, which will take place on August 17. Why was Leo Frank lynched? — and why was he lynched, not by a mob of illiterate haters, but by an assemblage of community leaders and eminent citizens? Does the current media story about Leo Frank — that he was an innocent victim of widespread and “virulent” anti-Semitism — really hold true when we examine the facts?

It is impossible to understand the lynching of Leo Frank without reading and understanding the works of Tom Watson, virtually the only major journalist of his time who bucked the trend — and refused the money proffered him to take a pro-Frank stance — and saw in the Leo Frank media circus a litany of lies, misrepresentations, bribes, perjury, and propaganda designed to nearly deify a man who was a convicted strangler and defiler of little girls.

You hear a lot about Tom Watson from the “mainstream” media — invariably denouncing him — but you almost never get even a complete paragraph from them of what he actually said about the Leo Frank case.

To help you understand the viewpoint of Mr. Watson, we now present for the first time the complete text, with new added audio book renditions by Vanessa Neubauer, of all of his writings on the Frank case, exactly as published in his Watson’s Magazine in 1915. Just click on the links to read each article, where you’ll see an audio player embedded after the first paragraph which will allow you to hear the audio book version.
