ROY FRANKHOUSER, JR., ROT IN HELL!

E-mail Print PDF

We know it sucked for Roy Frankhouser that he was pegged as a FBI informant while a member of the Ku Klux Klan. We know it sucked to be someone who's Klan church was in the middle of what eventually became a Hispanic neighborhood in Reading, PA. We know it sucked that in his later days the only ones that cared what he thought was some wannabe failed Klansman that let you speak at his rally in Gettysburg a few years ago. And it must have truly sucked to know that as he died, he knew that no one would care enough to even claim his body. Frankhouser has been around, even appearing on an episode of Geraldo with a reformed bonehead who eventually became one of OPP's founding members. But ultimately he would die in a nursing home with the local paper appealing to some sort of family to collect his remains. We say cremate him and flush his ashes down the toilet. Everything else about him went in the crapper years ago anyway!

Reading Eagle


The self-proclaimed head of the Ku Klux Klan in Pennsylvania died Friday in Spruce Manor Nursing Home, West Reading, with no known survivors.

Roy E. Frankhouser Jr., 69, who had operated the Mountain Church of Jesus Christ in the 100 block of South Fourth Street, which doubled as the local KKK headquarters, had resided in Spruce Manor since November 2006.

The Berks County coroner's office is seeking next of kin to claim Frankhouser's body.

During his life Frankhouser had been convicted of an international fraud scheme, allegedly involved in assassination plots against U.S. government leaders, acquitted of a stabbing a rival Klan leader, lost an eye in a bar fight and waged a battle to get his white supremacist show on public access cable television, according to just a few of the dozens of newspaper clippings in the Reading Eagle archive.

This is a video still of Frankhouser as he sat in a minivan with other Nazis including Moreland "Tripp Henderson" Huber to monitor a Confederate Flag burning in Newark, NJ on June 17, 2000. They are later approached by antifa and encouraed to leave, Frankhouser was told by one of the women, "Don't spawn." and considering no one has claimed his body, maybe he took the advice.

The longtime Klansman and former member of the American Nazi Party was convicted in February 1995, following a four-day federal trial in Boston stemming from allegations he advised a white supremacist's mother to destroy evidence linking her son to the desecration of synagogues in Randolph and Brockton, Mass., as well as alleged assaults on black Brockton residents.

On April 28, 1993, Frankhouser was acquitted in Cumberland County Court of assault charges stemming from a 1992 stabbing incident in a hotel where a large KKK meeting was being held.

Frankhouser, then 53, was acquitted following a two-day trial.

The jury cited self-defense in finding the Klansman not guilty.

Frankhouser testified that stabbing victim Frank Mosley, a KKK security guard, and several skinheads ambushed and attacked him while he was attempting to enter the meeting. James W. Farrands, imperial wizard of a large Klan faction, was at the hotel.

Frankhouser said he defended himself with a Swiss army knife he had in his possession.

Frankhouser claimed a victory for free speech in 1985 when he launched "Race and Reason" on Berks Cable TV, the predecessor to BCTV.

He later hosted "White Forum" on BCTV.

He was on television on either network for more than a decade.

On Feb. 17, 1988, Frankhouser was sentenced to three years in federal prison and fined $50,000 for advising political extremist Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr. to obstruct a federal grand jury probe into an alleged fundraising fraud scheme.

During the trial, Forrest Lee Fick of Stony Creek Mills testified that he and Frankhouser were asked by a member of LaRouche's organization to kill former Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger during a flight to Europe.

According the newspaper records, Frankhouser was first arrested in 1961 at age 22 for kicking an Atlanta police captain in the shins during a protest.
