New Audio Book: The American Mercury on Leo Frank – Hooper’s Closing Arguments

The jurors in the Leo Frank trial

THIS WEEK our new audio book of the American Mercury’s coverage of the 1913 trial and conviction of Jewish sex killer Leo Frank moves into the closing arguments of the attorneys to the jury (pictured). We will be presenting these extensive arguments in order and in full — a monumental, book-length project that will add another sixteen weeks to the seven weeks already presented here. The closing arguments begin with the earnest, low-key, yet powerful presentation of prosecutor Hugh Dorsey’s assistant, Frank Arthur Hooper, who makes his case for Leo Frank’s guilt.

Mr. Hooper states in his speech:

I will be fair with [Leo] Frank. When he followed the child back into the metal room, he didn’t know that it would necessitate force to accomplish his purpose. I don’t believe he originally had murder in his heart. There was a scream. Jim Conley heard it. Just for the sake of knowing how harrowing it was, I wish you jurymen could hear a similar scream.

Also covered are details of the successive — and very suspicious — attempts to shift blame for the murder from Frank to James Gantt, to Newt Lee, and finally to James Conley, in three instances using fake evidence that was definitively proved to be planted.

I’ve been following along with this excellent series and it is astounding how the Jewish-run media have totally inverted the story of this case: 1. They lie about the murder itself, leaving out the numerous elements, evidence, and testimony that point to Frank’s guilt; 2. They lie about the trial, hiding the fact that at no point during it was there the slightest evidence of anti-Jewish expressions or mob intimidation; 3. They lie about the multiple instances in which the Frank forces planted false evidence, including a fake bloody club and pay envelope intended to frame Jim Conley, a fake time slip and bloody shirt intended to frame Newt Lee—not the actions of an innocent man!; 4. They lie about Southern society, which was then and still is now overwhelmingly… Read more »
