In another deadly shooting spree, this time in Mesa, Arizona, one person is dead and five others have been wounded in multiple locations. After an extensive manhunt, a man with purported ties to white nationalist groups was arrested by law enforcement. After being hit with a stun gun, he was taken away from the scene in a white biological hazard suit.

Gun Activists Planning Spokane Armed Protest on March 6

03.04.2015

On Friday, March 6, gun activists, militia members, Tea Partiers, Threepers and other far-right activists plan to hold an armed rally in Spokane.  The rally is scheduled for 11am to 2pm, at the Tom Foley Federal Courthouse (920 W. Riverside Ave) in downtown Spokane.

Organized to show support for an activist who was recently arrested when he brought his firearm onto federal property, the event is part of dangerous intensification of conflict with authorities over guns. Adding to the volatility of the rally is the announcement that the leader of a rival faction declared his intention to attend the event.

CPAC’s Recurring White Nationalism Problem

02.25.2015

As the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) gets set to kick off tomorrow just outside of Washington DC, the event is already mired in yet another controversy over white nationalism.

ProEnglish, the white nationalist-led English-only outfit that created serious headaches for the conference in the past, is once again being allowed to be an official exhibitor at CPAC 2015 when the doors open tomorrow. On top of that, another white nationalist outfit has come to town to try and influence the CPAC conversation.
