Aryan Nations Maryland, of which Gordon Young is the State Leader. Yeah, this is all they got.
Well, it looks like antifa wants some of Gordon Young. The former head of the “World Knights of the Ku Klux Klan” that couldn’t seem to get his “World Knights” no farther than Maryland before he was busted on a statutory rape charge (that he eventually beat) is now with Aryan Nations after fluttering around a bit with the National Socialist Movement. Young wants to relive his glory days of having rallies at famous landmarks, so he is going back to Gettysburg National Military Park. This was the site of a rally of his back in 2006, and as always there is some little caveat to his rallies to try and annoy black people. This time, he is holding it on Juneteenth, the day that word got out to slaves in Texas that the Civil War was over and that they were free. But don’t worry. If the last time was any indication – where the police put him in a staging area 200 feet away from everyone – he is going to be far enough away from those black people he wants to piss off. Oh, such bravery! In any case, we will be there, and we look forward to seeing all of you out on the battlefield!
On June 19th, Aryan Nations plans to hold a rally at the Gettysburg National Military Park from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM to spread their racist and anti-Semitic ideology.
According to Wikipedia “Aryan Nations (AN) is a white nationalist neo-Nazi organization founded in the 1970s by Richard Girnt Butler as an arm of the Christian Identity group Church of Jesus Christ-Christian. As of December 2007 there were two main factions that claimed descent from Butler’s group. Aryan Nations has been called a ‘terrorist threat’ by the FBI, and the RAND Corporation has called it the ‘first truly nationwide terrorist network’ in the USA.”
The extreme right has a long standing tradition of holding rallies in Gettysburg. Most recently, in September 2007, an Anti-Racist Action presence chased a few Klansman around the city. Here in PA, we also know the racist influence on our local governments who are debating on creating a bill inspired by Arizona’s anti-immigrant law, SB1070. One can find Confederate flags all throughout back roads of rural PA, and one only has to visit the local police station to find the most active Klansmen.
We won’t stand idly by as the fascists invade our communities.
ALL OUT AGAINST THE FASCISTS!
KEEP THE 717 NAZI FREE!
