I just realized the parallel between the John Birch Society (“who the heck is John Birch?”) and the Horst Wessel song (“who the heck is Horst Wessel?”)

In both cases it's nobody in particular, and the more you look into why they canonized their particular guy, the less interesting it gets.

Is this a common pattern of fringe political groups? Right-wing fringe political groups?
