UNITED STATES, [US]--The amount of white supremacist propaganda found on college campuses grew exponentially in the past year, according to a new report from the Anti-Defamation League. The ADL found a 258 percent increase in reports of white supremacist fliers, banners, posters and stickers on U.S. college campuses in fall semester 2016 and fall semester 2017. In fall 2016, there were 41 incidents reported and, in the same time period the following year, there were 147 incidents, the report stated. White supremacists "see campuses as fertile recruiting ground," the ADL said in a statement released with the report. "While campuses must respect and protect free speech, administrators must al

LINCOLN, [NE]--The University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) receives messages and phones calls about Daniel Kleve all the time these days. The 23-year-old undergraduate biochemistry major is a white supremacist who is overtly racist and dangerous, his classmates say. They don’t want to share classes with him, they don’t want to bump into him in a dining hall—they don’t want to see the tawny-haired man on campus ever again. Antifascist Action Nebraska, a local group that has developed a national reputation among activists for the relentlessness with which it tracks the movements of white supremacists, published a video of Kleve speaking with other extremists on Google Hangout, and it went

DAVENPORT, [IA]--A few Quad-City Times readers reported finding flyers connected to a white supremacist organization with their papers Wednesday morning, Publisher Debbie Anselm said. As the matter was investigated, it was determined the flyers were not included with the Times, nor delivered by one its carriers, but wrapped around free publications that are readily available in the Quad-Cities, and then bagged and tossed onto curbs in neighborhoods in Bettendorf and Moline, she said. Some of the free publications are produced by the Quad-City Times. Bettendorf Police Capt. Keith Kimball said a resident walking a dog in a neighborhood south east of 18th Street and 53rd Avenue discovered the

BURLINGTON, [VT]--The mayor of Burlington, Vermont, is denouncing a white supremacist organization that gathered at a city park over the weekend. The Burlington Free Press reports Mayor Miro Weinberger wrote in a statement that "white supremacist groups like Patriot Front" aren't welcome in Burlington following a rally Saturday at City Hall Park. Patriot Front released a video on Twitter showing members carrying American flags and a banner that read "Reclaim America." The Anti-Defamation League describes the Patriot Front as a white supremacist group whose members believe their ancestors conquered America. A group of about 250 counter-protesters, led by activist Jabari Jones, met in South Bu

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

CHATTANOOGA, [TN]--Meigs County is split from north to south by Highway 58, which carves through miles of farmland populated mostly by cows. A detour at any point either to the east or the west carries drivers down winding roads between stands of trees and small pastures. Confederate flags and "no trespassing" signs are commonplace in the areA. There, where the asphalt turns into a narrow gravel path traveling through the woods, is where Angela Dover Meadows has purchased a 44-acre parcel of land. Her husband, Eric Meadows, has posted on social media about bulldozer work being done in a wooded area in Southeast Tennessee for a project called Wotans Nation. Eric Meadows is a former member of
