Neo-Nazi Nativists plan rally, march in Claremont
Xenophobic isolationism is a key marker for tribal supremacists everywhere, and they will latch onto any populist idea or movement that promotes that sentiment with a vengeance. That’s why you see Nazis and White Supremacists if you lift the covers of pretty much any group within the Nativist movement that’s larger than handful of members.
The National Socialist Movement, a neo-Nazi group, has scheduled a march and rally against illegal immigration from noon to 1p.m. Saturday on Foothill Boulevard.
“We will have a lot of flags, our signs and a bullhorn,” said Jeff Hall, Southwest States regional director of the organization.
“We’re going to be heard and let it be known we’re against illegal immigration … we believe in free speech. We’re going to make our voices heard.”
Hall, who expects between 30 and 40 people from his group at the rally, said the exact location will probably be announced on Monday.
The rally is in response to Claremont Colleges students who have protested in favor of “open borders,” Hall said. “Our guys from Claremont wanted a voice.”
City Manager Jeff Parker said a counter rally, by a group called Claremont for Peace, would be held at the same time at Memorial Park, 840 N. Indian Hill Blvd.
