MANHATTAN, [NY]--One of the victims of a vicious beating is speaking out after an attack outside a Manhattan bar. The graduate student said he was with his twin brother at the time and believes the whole ordeal started because of a sticker on his cell phone denouncing fascism. The alleged victims told police they were attacked as they left Clockwork, a popular punk dive bar on Essex Street on the Lower East Side. They said they were initially inside the bar but decided to leave because they were uncomfortable around some of the other patrons, claiming several of them were wearing patches and insignia that appeared to identify them as part of the skinhead or Nationalist movement. He described

DALLAS, [TX]--A gay porn star was among four people taken into custody Thursday during a SWAT drug raid that set off a series of loud booms and rattled an Oak Lawn neighborhood.

ORLANDO, [FL]--On a cold November morning, about 30 posters popped up on the University of Central Florida campus in Orlando. The posters spotted around campus were from a pop-up white nationalist group American Vanguard. A group that exists entirely online with a website, twitter feed and little else; yet its reach stretches across the country with the group targeting college campuses. The group’s website and twitter feed is filled with “white pride” and anti-Muslim propaganda. One of its pages is a series of posters that anyone can download and distribute, this is how its message gets out. On Oct. 12, one month before the posters were discovered at UCF, American Vanguard took to its

COLUMBUS, [OH]--Amanda Lee says she is building an army and Ohio plays a key role in her plans. As the national imperial commander for the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, Lee predicted last week that 2017 will bring a resurgence of her group's activity — public rallies, widespread pamphlet distribution, greater recruitment efforts — and a push in several targeted states, including Ohio. "We have people all over Ohio already. There is a large membership of Loyal White Knights there," she said in a phone interview during a dinner break from her job in North Carolina. "When things start going wrong, it's time for us to start retaliating. It's time for us to get active." Lee said sh

NOME, [ND]--This 62-person hamlet in Barnes County is facing a question other sleepy North Dakota towns have already grappled with: What should be done when white supremacist Craig Cobb is trying to move in? Cobb, aka Paul Craig Cobb, has already tried to turn the towns of Leith and Antler into enclaves of white supremacists. Now, it’s believed he started last week to move into the former Zion Lutheran Church in Nome, about 70 miles southwest of Fargo. At a meeting of the Nome City Council on Sunday, Feb. 5, Mayor Bruce Storhoff said he’s heard Cobb intends to buy the old church, which is currently zoned as a residence and not a gathering place. However, the sale is not yet complete, and

HOUSTON, [TX]--A white supremacist group called American Vanguard is taking responsibility for placing racist recruitment posters on college campuses this week around Texas, including at Rice University. “Protect the family, reject degeneracy,” one poster near Rice University said.

The university, he said, has a policy against solicitation without permission. The group also said it has placed posters at Texas State University in San Marcos and the University of North Texas in Denton. Social media posts indicate that mos

MADISON, [WI]--A University of Wisconsin-Madison student who once served prison time for setting fires at two predominantly black churches is recruiting on campus for a local chapter of a national pro-white party, enraging students searching for ways to improve race relations. Daniel Dropik, 33, said frustration over the Black Lives Matter movement's presence on campus and university courses examining white and male privilege led him to start a local chapter of the American Freedom Party. The American Freedom Party is a political party with deep ties to white supremacism, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups. Dropik's recruiting comes as minorities have been

KALISPELL, [MT]-The Whitefish Police Department says it is aware of the white supremacist website "The Daily Stormer" and its call for an "armed march" through the city of Whitefish. Andrew Anglin, who runs "The Daily Stormer," posted on the website on Friday: "We are planning an armed protest in Whitefish. Montana has extremely liberal open carry laws, so my lawyer is telling me we can easily march through the center of the town carrying high-powered rifles." He says the march is "...planned against Jews, Jewish businesses and everyone who supports either." The post also claims, "We will be busing in skinheads from the Bay Area." Anglin says he will gather more than 200 followers for the ma
