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

ROCHESTER, [MN]--A Rochester mayoral candidate who is Muslim is receiving attention after a death threat was posted on one of her social media accounts. Regina Mustafa, who announced her candidacy on Feb. 5, said on Monday morning she received a notification about a comment on one of her Google Plus posts from June 2017. The comment, made by an account called "Militia Movement," said "EXECUTE all muslims in America." Mustafa called the threat "alarming" and said she reported it to the Rochester Police Department on Monday; though she acknowledged tracking down the person behind the account could be difficult. It's by far the most threatening message she's received since announcing her may

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.

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

LOCUST GROVE, [GA]--The man suspected of killing a police officer before dying in a shooting in Georgia held extreme anti-government views and believed that deputies had no right to step on his property, a newspaper reported. Tierre Guthrie, 39, was killed Friday at his home in Locust Grove, about 25 miles (45 kilometers) southeast of Atlanta. The shootout began when Henry County sheriff's deputies came to serve a warrant for ignoring traffic violation court dates, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said. Locust Grove Police Officer Chase Maddox was killed and two deputies were wounded. Guthrie had had previous run-ins with Henry County deputies and believed law enforcement officers didn't
