The Aryan Nations released a flyer that appealed to people who, in their words, are “tired of illegal immigration,” or of “hate crime legislation designed to target whites,” and the “under reported non-white crime rate,” among other Klan talking points.
City leaders approved the event even though some in the area did not want the group to get together at the local park. People who live in the area and use the public park said they often worry about another chance for the group’s message to be heard by others.
Police said the Aryan Nations event was scheduled to last two hours. The KKK also scheduled three speakers and served food to the public. However, the rally only lasted an hour and no food or drink was served.
