Chattanooga Braces for Neo-Nazi Rally Against Immigration
How time flies when you’re spreading hate.
It’s hard to believe - and more than a little sad to realize - that the National Socialist Movement (NSM), currently the largest and most prominent neo-Nazi organization in the United States, has been around now for 40 years, although it started life under a different name.
Notable for its violent anti-Jewish rhetoric and its racist views, the Detroit-based NSM is scheduled to celebrate its anniversary with a rally on the steps of the Hamilton County Courthouse in Chattanooga, Tenn., on Saturday, April 26. The occasion will also mark the 20th anniversary of the leadership of Jeff Schoep, who renamed the Nationalist Socialist American Workers Freedom Movement when he took over in 1994.
Besides marking its four decades of white supremacy and anti-Semitism, the purpose of the rally is to oppose illegal immigration, according to its successful permit application, the Times Free Press reported today.
