SACRAMENTO, [CA]--William Scott Planer must wait another two weeks to be arraigned in a violent state Capitol clash with anti-fascist demonstrators ahead of a trial in the June 2016 melee, but his attorney said the white supremacist is looking forward to taking his case to a jury. “Mr. Planer doesn’t think he committed a felony. He says he’s seeking a trial,” Planer attorney Danny Brace said Thursday following Planer’s brief Sacramento Superior Court appearance. Planer is a member of the Traditionalist Worker Party, the group whose joint rally with fellow hate group Golden State Skinheads on the state Capitol grounds disintegrated into a wild brawl with counterprotesters. Ten peopl
SACRAMENTO, [CA]--Court documents show that California police investigating a 2016 violent white nationalist event sought the help of neo-Nazis in naming counter-protesters who held “anti-racist” beliefs. In documents related to a court case for three anti-fascists—charged with felonies from a state Capitol brawl in Sacramento last June between white supremacist groups and anti-fascist groups—California Highway Patrol (CHP) investigators are shown sympathizing with white supremacists, as well as trying to identify key leaders of anti-fascist groups. “Everything in all the court documents are damning evidence of CHP cover up and the CHP and DA collusion with white supremacists and o
SARATOGA SPRINGS, [NY]--Someone left flyers advertising a white supremacist group on cars in Saratoga Springs overnight Sunday, the Saratoga Springs Police Department says. A caller contacted the police department Sunday morning around 8:00 to report that overnight someone had left a flyer on their car parked in front their home on Woodlawn Ave. Officers responding found the flier contained information about the Loyal White Knights of the KKK. Police found the flyer had also been left on a number of other vehicles in the area. Police say the flyers are similar to ones posted in the city several years ago. White supremacist flyers were also found on car windshields in Saratoga in May of 2017.
UNITED STATES, [US]--Six months since neo-Nazis, white supremacists and “alt-right” activists joined forced and took to the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia, in a parade of hate that reverberated across America, organizers of the “Unite the Right” rally have more visibility, but not much else to show for it. An analysis prepared by the Anti-Defamation League finds that extremists participating in the Charlottesville march emerged weaker and more fractured than before. They are also coping with the consequences of intense scrutiny and retribution they had never seen in their previous years of extremist activism. At the same time, the report, published Monday on the six month anniv
AUSTIN, [TX]--An Austin Reddit user said a trip to the Texas State Capitol ended when they found white supremacist flyers posted on the grounds. On Sunday, the Reddit user posted the image of the flyer to the R/Austin subreddit. The tattered flyer was missing a few pieces, but visibly said “Look around white [man], your culture is being erased.” Accompanying the message is a picture of what looks to be the former governor of Texas, Sam Houston. While the bottom of the flyer is torn off in the image, a search of the message reveals that it is not the first time these flyers have been found. Similar messages were discovered accompanied by a link to the white supremacist group Vanguard Amer
