White Supremacists Rally Against Immigration In Los Angeles
Police stood between white supremacists and counter-demonstrators at Los Angles City Hall Saturday, as 50 members of a group calling itself the “National Socialist Movement” waved American flags and flags with swastikas.
The white supremacists, many of them wearing flack helmets and black military fatigue uniforms, shouted “Sieg Heil” before each of their speakers took the podium to taunt counter-protesters with racial, anti-Semitic and misogynistic epithets.
“We will meet you head on,” one of the white supremacists, whose name could not be made out over the fuzzy public address system, warned the crowd from behind several phalanxes of police in riot gear.
Members of the Detroit-based group said they picked the location for their rally because of Los Angeles’ large immigrant population. They accused some of the immigrants of stealing jobs and committing crimes.
Unfortunately, counter-protesters hurled rocks, branches and other items, and five of them were arrested.Click here for reuse options!
