MACON, [GA]--An alleged Neo-Nazi sympathizer from Cochran faces federal charges after he reportedly called the Washington D.C. office of U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) and threatened to kill him. That’s according to a 7-page criminal complaint filed in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Georgia on Friday. The complaint alleges that Jason Kenneth Bell, of Cochran, called Scott’s office on Oct. 23, and said, “I am going to kill that mother******.” The documents allege Bell told an office staffer that he called about Scott’s stance on Neo-Nazis and criticized Scott’s meeting with Trump to discuss Trump’s remarks about the deadly rally in Charlottesville, Vi

NEW BRUNSWICK, [NJ]--Recruiting fliers posted by a white supremacist group were hung across Rutgers University's New Brunswick and Piscataway campuses Monday, October 23rd, university officials said. The fliers promoting Identity Evropa, a white nationalist group that has been recruiting on college campuses across the country this fall, were posted on walls and in campus buildings.

BRENTWOOD, [TN]--Nashville police are investigating an altercation Saturday at the Corner Pub in Brentwood between a large group professing “white lives matter” and an interracial couple, hours after several white nationalist groups marched in Shelbyville, Tenn. A 30-year-old white woman and a 37-year-old African American man were at a table when a group of 20-30 white men and women entered the bar and sat near the couple, according to a Metro Nashville Police news release. A white woman in the large group asked the 30-year-old to “guess” to which she responded “white lives matter,”police said. Another member of the group affirmed with “that’s right” and told the woman to j

UNITED STATES, [US]--White nationalists like those who marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August pose a greater danger to America’s national security than conflicts in which the U.S. is fighting the Islamic State militant group, or ISIS, in Iraq and Syria, say U.S. troops. In a new poll of 1,131 active-duty soldiers conducted by The Military Times after the August “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, 30 percent of respondents ranked white nationalists as a more significant danger to U.S. security than the Syria and Iraq conflicts. They put the danger from those at 27 percent and 17 percent respectively. The Charlottesville rally drew members of the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Na

ATLANTA, [GA]--A march that morphed into violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier this year launched the alt-right into the national conversation like never before. Sam Dickson, an Atlanta real estate lawyer, is a self-described white nationalist, who sat down exclusively with Winne to talk about his controversial beliefs. “I’m a spokesman for legitimate white interests. I am not hostile to minority groups,” Dickson said. Dickson said he rejects labels like left, right or alt-right, but acknowledges he frequently speaks to alt-right groups. In Henry County, Chris Hill said as a Marine, he trained officer candidates but now he trains fellow III% Security Force militia members to

WASHINGTON, [DC]--Nobody seems to know what drove Stephen Paddock to start firing into a crowd of festival-goers in Las Vegas earlier this month, killing 58 and injuring more than 540 people. The FBI is remaining tight-lipped about what it has found about Paddock’s motive, if anything. The Islamic State quickly claimed responsibility for the attack, asserting that Paddock had converted to Islam months before. But this theory soon was cut down by investigators and experts on radical Islamic terrorism, who said there was no evidence to support the Islamic State’s claim. Meanwhile, experts in another field of extremism are beginning to ask a new question: Did Paddock share the beliefs of a

NASHVILLE, [TN]--Religious leaders across Tennessee are denouncing white supremacy ahead of Saturday’s White Lives Matter protests in Murfreesboro and Shelbyville. Scores of clergy have signed their names to statements opposing the white nationalist groups' values. They have planned community prayer vigils celebrating diversity and advocating for unity. And they have sent a strong message that hate is not a religious value. All faith traditions are meant to promote peace, understanding and love between people, said Rabbi Laurie Rice, a leader of the Brentwood, Tenn.-based Congregation Micah that has members in Murfeesboro and Shelbyville. That is why she is among those countering the group

UNITED STATES, [US]--On Saturday afternoon, Tanesha Hudson set up a lunch buffet in a conference room on the top floor of the Central Library on Market Street. A few dozen people spooned mac ’n’ cheese and other dishes onto disposable plates and sat at folding tables to eat. Hudson planned the meeting, a sort of citizens committee, she says, for the Charlottesville community to discuss how to “start holding the city more accountable for the way things turned out” the weekend of August 12. But only a handful of community members were in attendance—they were outnumbered by members of independent militia and other Three Percent and American patriot movement groups, who drove in from

LAS VEGAS, [NV]--When the third in a series of trials over the 2014 Bundy Ranch standoff in Nevada gets underway, prosecutors will be able to use testimony from an expert in extremism and domestic terrorism, the judge in the case has ruled. Defense attorneys for one of the accused Bundy supporters, Ryan Payne, of Montana, had sought to keep much of the federal agent’s testimony out of the case, saying his expertise on militias and terrorism would prejudice the jury. Jury selection for the trial—which includes Payne, Cliven Bundy and his sons Ammon and Ryan—begins next week. The men are facing a raft of charges related to the armed confrontation, near Bunkerville, Nevada, which prevente
