Neo-Nazis and Three Percent Militia unite to terrorize small Ohio town


In the hour before dawn on August 28 a college student found the first flier while on their morning jog. It was wheat pasted to a stop sign. Every stop sign on their route had one or more flyers from two different neo-nazi groups. A few blocks away, a professor went for their morning coffee and noticed a pickup truck with prominent stickers for a so-called 3% militia group called the “West Ohio Minuteman” idling in a parking lot downtown.

Heavily armed 3% militia groups have taken the task of protecting the “Free Speech” rights of neo-nazi groups and more mainstream official Trump rallies. This author has seen them armed, illegally, on Ohio Statehouse grounds chatting with police. This is the first time that a three percent militia has put up or openly endorsed neo-nazi propaganda.

The Village of Yellow Springs, home of Antioch College, is a long standing bastion of civil rights. It was a stop on the underground railroad. It was the first municipality in the nation to include sexual orientation in it's anti-discrimination ordinance. The list of other notable human rights milestones is much longer.

The flyers, bearing the names of Identity Europa and the National Vanguard, were not aimed at recruitment. They bore no point of contact. There are zero people in the village of under 4000 souls that want anything to do with such a thing. All the flyers were had slogans supporting white supremacy or expressing hatred for gays and/or feminists. This was a mass armed act of intimidation directed at an entire zip code because of it's demographics and identity.

Is this the sort of intimidation tactics we are going to have to stand up against now that the pResident in in the White House?

2. The uniforms are different (usually)

This is the age "Trump is president, so now it is OK to behave like this."

It gets scary when they turn out to be right.

4. I don't think so unless they are outspoken either way.

It's a closed fraternity in the US.

3. Apparently, the government is just going to sit back and let III%ers

and other bigoted armed groups do what they like. One day we'll regret coddling these deplorables.

Show me where the dotted line is! Kicking their asses to the curb is the patriotic thing to do!

5. They must have connections to the local police/town officials. That connection must be broken by fir

firing police members of hate groups. That should be a new national policy.

6. I'd think it unlikely, given Yellow Springs' history,

but being co-opted is not uncommon, I guess.

14. way to many local police are members and supporters of hate groups.

police and military should never be hired if they are members, tattooed with nazi crap, post hate stuff in public/private or support in any way hate groups.

7. The Governor might be interested,

both to do the right thing and to earn a few points for a presidential run.

8. I live in an area that has long standing problems.

Having spoken with some of these people personally you make it clear you do not tolerate their bull shit and they will live longer if they away from you on your property. They greatly fear publicity and have enough sense to know when discovered people will hate their guts. Trump and those who attempt to normalize Donald are a revelation for the white knuckle draggers, finally respect for hate and those who deserve to be hated.

9. Yellow Springs is absolutely worth a day trip. If you are a liberal and you

love art, good food and friendly people, plan to spend some time there. We "found" Yellow springs a few years ago while driving back to Illinois from a March in DC. Had to make ourselves leave.

10. Agreed.

It's a very off-beat vibe there.

Be sure to sneak up SR 68 to Young's Dairy. Worth the drive.

13. Trump enpowered these scum

 

They are the base voters of the republican party.

Know your enemy, these people mean to violently take over this country and Trump is their leader.
