Hate Makes A Comeback In The Pacific Northwest

By NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS

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.

These new far-right activists are more scattered than the ones who used to gather at the Aryan Nations by the dozens, experts say.

“It is no longer necessary to go to a compound in Hayden Lake, Idaho,” said Kristine Hoover, director of the Gonzaga Institute for Hate Studies in Spokane.

With the proliferation of social media, groups “form in dispersed locations” and gatherings are “more covert,” she said.

6. Yeah I live on the border.

That was 40 years ago and that tiny contingent of Nazis were sent to prison or died.

I regard this article as slander, propaganda and fake news. A crap article by a hack writer in a yellow publication. Have a nice night.

9. Kinda hard to point fingers when Democrat Reps openly hate on Jews,

A Democrat Governor wears a KKK outfit, The Democrat Lt Governor rapes multiple women, Democrats in general hate on white people, The leading Democrat candidate is a serial molester...I could go on.
