Jesús Palacios Tapias

Jesús Palacios Tapias (born 1952) is a Spanish essayist who has authored several books about contemporary history of Spain. He was a member of the neo-nazi CEDADE, now disbanded.


Born in San Lorenzo de El Escorial in 1952,[1] Palacios participated in the 1972 World Anti-Communist League (WACL) congress in Mexico,[2] where, dressed in a brown shirt and a black tie, he declared before the audience that Marxism was a tool to "install the tyranny of the Jews".[3] During his youth, Palacios also served as delegate of Foreign Relations of the neo-Nazi CEDADE,[4] while his brother Isidro Juan held the role of chief of the Madrilenian delegation of the Barcelona-based organization,[5] established on 30 March 1973,[6] during an event in which Palacios participated as speaker next to president Jorge Mota.[6] Palacios also took part in a meeting of the so-called "Black International" of neo-fascist groups in Bavaria.[7] He edited along with his brother the National Socialist journals Ruta Solar and Cuadernos de Cultura Vertical.[7]

As the owner of the limited company Sarmata S.L., he was the producer of a documentary for Telemadrid, made in 2006 (Las claves del 23-F).[7] In 2010 he gave a course in criminology at the Complutense University of Madrid, in which Juan Antonio Aguilar, former member of Bases Autónomas, was a speaker.[8]

He is the author of several books dealing with the contemporary history of Spain, including two books authored ex-aequo with right-leaning historian Stanley G. Payne, one of them a biography of the dictator Francisco Franco described as distilling a "hagiographic tone".[9][10]
