Armed neo-Nazis set date for march in US town

A date has been set for an armed march in a small town in Montana where neo-Nazis will be protesting against the town’s Jewish citizens, their businesses and anyone who supports them.

Andrew Anglin, the person behind neo-Nazi site The Daily Stormer and the proposed march, told ABC Fox Montana that the armed demonstration will take place on January 15, just days before President-elect Trump’s inauguration. 

The neo-Nazi march has been organised in support of white supremacist Richard Spencer and his mother Sherry and against the Jewish community of Whitefish in Montana. Anglin told the news channel he wanted it to coincide with Martin Luther King Day, which will be observed the next day.

He has outlined plans to carry “high powered rifles” on the day and expects around 200 people to take part in the racist demonstration.

“Montana has extremely liberal open carry laws, so my lawyer is telling me we can easily march through the centre of the town carrying high-powered rifles,” he wrote on his antisemitic site, adding that he plans to be present on the day.

“Currently, my guys say we are going to be able to put together about 200 people to participate in the march, which will be against Jews, Jewish businesses and everyone who supports either,” he wrote.

Richard Spencer is the president and director of the National Policy Institute, a so-called white supremacist think tank. He recently spoke at a rally in Washington DC in which members of the audience were filmed giving Nazi salutes as Mr Spencer shouted “Hail Trump! Hail victory!”
