    I wonder if anyone besides the Southern Poverty Law Center tracks these groups?

    SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Nearly two decades after the Aryan Nations' Idaho compound was demolished, far-right extremists are maintaining a presence in the Pacific Northwest.

    White nationalism has been on the rise across the U.S., but it has particular resonance along the Idaho-Washington border, where the Aryans espoused hate and violence for years.

    The neo-Nazi group was based near Hayden Lake, Idaho, starting in the 1970s, and eventually was bankrupted in a lawsuit brought by local activists and the Southern Poverty Law Center. Its compound was seized, and supporters dispersed.

    But a series of incidents in recent weeks show far-right sentiments never really left the conservative region. In the county that is home to Hayden Lake, for instance, Republicans last month passed a measure expressing support for U.S. entry of a prominent Austrian far-right activist who was investigated for ties to the suspected New Zealand mosque gunman.

    In 2018, at least nine hate groups operated in the region of Spokane and northern Idaho, including Identity Evropa, Proud Boys, ACT for America and America's Promise Ministries, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The center does not track how many members belong to each group.

    If you really want to tamp down on the alleged rise of "white nationalism" then I dunno, maybe stop trying to systematically replace the white majority with mexicans?

    So, in a OP about a supposed comeback, you start out talking about shit from 20 years ago, and then move on to shit from the 70s.


    Other than a move to allow a speaker into the country, who was investigating for MAYBE having ties to some guy. Not known to have ties, but just accused of having ties.


    That is the most firm piece of "evidence" you have to support your claim.



    Dude.

    The Pacific Northwest is loaded with Haters. They just happen to be Liberals who hate President Trump and anyone who supports him. They outnumber the so-called "White Nationalists" a million to one.

    What percentage of black-on-white violent crimes were motivated by the us-vs-them mentality spread by groups like the SPLC? The powers that be aren't interested in asking that question so we will never know.

    BLM is a hate group. ANTIFA is a hate group.
