Politicians and activists in Montana have told a group of neo-Nazis and white supremacists they will find “no safe haven” over a plan for an armed rally next month.
Neo-Nazis plan a march in January in the ski town of Whitefish in Montana’s north-west. It has been organised in support of the mother of white supremacist leader Richard Spencer. Sherry Spencer is facing pressure from community members to sell a building she owns in the town because of its ties to her son.
Reuters said that earlier this month, community members held a vigil and a protest in front of the building. As pressure on Ms Spencer mounted, the leading white supremacist website The Daily Stormer, urged readers “take action” against Jews in the Whitefish area.
Mr Spencer is the president of the National Policy Institute, a so-called white supremacist think tank based near Washington DC. At a rally in the nation’s capital last month, members of the group could be seen celebrating Donald Trump’s victory with Nazi salutes.
Senior local politicians in Montana have told the group’s members they will not be welcome.
