The organiser of an armed march against the Jewish population in a small town in Montana has insisted the harassment campaign will go ahead.
The Daily Stormer – an American neo-Nazi website – is planning the march in Whitefish – where the mother of white supremacist Richard Spencer lives.
It will take place in the second week of January – days before president-elect Donald Trump is inaugurated.
On 30 December Spencer – president of a extremist think tank – posted a Youtube video – calling for an end to the ‘troll storm’ in the town.On 7 January anti-hate groups are planning their own party to celebrate diversity – featuring singing story-telling and remarks from Whitefish officials and a pastor.
Yet Andrew Anglin – publisher of The Daily Stormer and organiser of the march said he would apply for a permit and would be there personally.
‘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 wrote.
‘Currently my guys say we are going to be able to put together about 200 people to participate in the march – which will be against Jews – Jewish businesses and everyone who supports either.
We will be busing in skinheads from the Bay Area’.
