FCC RULING
Racist's ads cleared

WASHINGTON (A) - The Fed-
eral Communications Commis-
sion (FCC) yesterday upheld the
right of an avowed white sup-
remacist running for the U.S.
Senate to have his campaign ad-
vertising broadcast in Atlanta
without censorship.
The commission rejected a pro-
test by three groups and At-
lanta Mayor Sam Massell that
the advertisements of D e m o-
crat J. B. Soner present a "clear.
and present danger of violence."
Three of the seven FCC com-
missioners acting as a board-
Robert Lee, Rex Lee and Rich-
ard Wiley - concluded a four
page letter to Lonnie King of
the National Association for the
Advancement ofColored People
"If there is to be free speech,
it must be free for speech that
we abhor and hate as well as
for speech that we find toler-
able or congenial."

Stoner, one of 15 candidates in
next Tuesday's Georgia primary,
said in Atlanta that he apprec-
iates the FCC upholding his
constitutional rights and those
of "all white Christians."
"I don't care how obnoxious
the views of my enemies, I think
they should have freedom of
speech to say on radio or tele-
vision whatever they want about
me," he said. "I think the FCC
ruling should apply to every in-
dividual."
Stoner had been running ads
over radio station WPLO and
over WSB-TV saying:
"I am the only candidate for
U.S. senator who is for the
white people. I am the o nl y
candidate who is against inte-
gration . . . the main reason why
niggers want integration is be-
cause the niggers want our white
women. I am for law and order

with the knowledge that you
can't have law and order and
niggers too."
King was joined in the re-
quest to the FCC by the Rev.
Joe Boone of the Atlanta Com-
munity Coalition on Broadcast-
ing and Stuart Lowengrub of the
Anti-Defamation League.
They asked that the stations be
permitted to delay broadcasting
Soner's ads until they are review-
ed by "an authorized body" with-
out the stations incurring FCC
sanctions.
The commissioners noted that
the three said the constitutional
right of free speech has certain
limitations such as not yelling
fire in the crowded theater and
that Stoner is yelling fire in the
crowded theater.
The FCC said that the Con-
munications Act bars 's broad-
caster from censoring r r o a d-
casts by legally qualified candi-
dates for public office.
