NOME, [ND]--A 108-year-old church recently bought by an un-welcomed white supremacist burned to the ground Wednesday, March 22, in this small rural town. White supremacist Craig Cobb was listed on a recent deed as an owner of the church at 295 3rd Ave. in Nome, which is about 70 miles southwest of Fargo. Nome residents said earlier this week it didn’t appear as if Cobb had moved in yet. Cobb has previously tried to establish white supremacist enclaves in two other North Dakota towns, including Leith, southwest of Bismarck. Cobb said the fire was “100 percent arson” and is offering a $2,000 reward for any information related to the incident. Both gas and electric utilities were off, so

AUSTIN, [TX]--Authorities are searching for a man with ties to a white supremacist group, who they believe could be stealing identities. Brian Whitfield has been found with a number of fake documents on two separate occasions, which is why officials believe he could still be doing it. "Those fraudulent documents could be someone's identification, someone's driver's license which could then lead to a possible fraudulent social security card," said U.S. Deputy Marshal Brandon Filla.

ASHEBORO, [NC]-- A North Carolina Ku Klux Klan group announced on its website that it planned to hold a rally and cross burning in May in Asheboro. The city and its U.S. congressman aren’t happy about it. The city announced on Facebook Sunday that it denounced “in the strongest terms possible the message of hate and division advocated by the Ku Klux Klan and its affiliates.” “The people of Asheboro have worked too hard to unify our community to let an outside group come in and spread racist views without raising our voices loudly in protest,” Mayor David H. Smith said in the statement. “They may have a right to peacefully assemble, but we also have a right to object at the top of

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
