Boyd Cathey
Boyd Cathey has been involved in several extremist movements, including "radical traditionalist Catholicism," Holocaust denial and the neo-Confederate movement. In the late 1970s, an extremist Catholic sect ordained Cathey, but he didn't maintain the faith and became a North Carolina state archivist shortly thereafter. In the first years of the 21st century, Cathey aided an extremist takeover attempt aimed at the Sons of Confederate Veterans, a Southern heritage group.
For three decades, radical right-wing activist and author Boyd Cathey has worked to bridge mainstream conservative politics and the far-right fringe worlds of Holocaust denial, extremist Catholicism, and racially tinged neo-Confederate causes.
As a young man, Cathey studied in Argentina, Spain and Switzerland at institutions run by the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), a "radical traditionalist Catholic" sect that was censured by the Vatican for refusing to comply with modern theological reforms (including reconciliation with Jews and other faiths), and Opus Dei, a far-right Catholic organization that long supported Spanish dictator Francisco Franco.
According to an SSPX newsletter, Cathey was ordained in 1979 and went on to teach at the society's seminary in Ridgefield, Conn. Two years later, he landed a job at the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources, where he has worked ever since as an archivist in the Resource Management branch.
After taking his job as a state archivist, Cathey began cultivating ties to far-right journals and groups, starting with Southern Partisan magazine.
The mastheads of subsequent issues of Southern Partisan - from 1984 to 1999 - variously identified Cathey as a contributor, editor, or senior adviser.
In 1988, Cathey was named North Carolina co-chair for the presidential campaign of anti-gay televangelist and Christian Coalition founder Pat Robertson, who is known for espousing conspiracy theories involving Jewish bankers and Freemasons.
During the 1992 Buchanan campaign, Cathey was exposed for having joined the editorial advisory committee of the Journal of Historical Review in 1989.
As early as 1996, Cathey claimed that he had quit his IHR position. But seven years later, in 2003, the group's leader was still saying that Cathey was on IHR's advisory committee, and Cathey's name remained on IHR's website.
More recently, Cathey became a key player in the multi-year attempt by racist extremists to assume control of the Sons of Confederate Veterans heritage group.
Wilson replaced that officer with Cathey, whom Wilson had earlier appointed to the SCV's executive council.
In June 2003, Cathey, propagandizing for extremist SCV members in the continuing internal battle for control of the organization, called for increased activism from its members. He also complained bitterly of the "immense numbers of 'Yankees' and 'Latinos'" who have moved to the South and "change[d] our society.", 8 Jan 2001 [cached]
Until the late 1990s, Boyd Cathey was listed alongside Pat Buchanan as a senior advisor to Southern Partisan.
As late as 1992, Cathey was an editorial advisor to The Journal of Historical Review, the leading journal of Holocaust denial. --Legal Times, 2/26/1996
On Secession
"The best hope, perhaps the only hope, for the South lies in an independent Southern nation, where we can at last be free to pursue the life we desire."
