Yesterday was a big day for Nazis all over the country. Donald Trump morning tweeted that Anti-Fascists are terrorist (see below). This was followed by a march by the Proud Boys, Patriot Prayer and the openly nazi American Guard in Portland Oregon with sticks, hammers and massive police protection. Meanwhile in Central Ohio two different Nazi groups showed the flag brazenly, openly and literally.
About a dozen Proud Boys marched in Dublin on August 17th, presumably to support their urine drinking brothers in Oregon (A Proud Boy cerimony for promotion involves drinking other members urine). The group carried American flags, Dutch NSB fascist party flags and the flag of “Kekistan”, a fictional nation used as an online in-joke between neo-nazis. These nazis also had Trump campaign banners, as they seem quite happy to have support for the president and seem very happy to return that support.
Sometime in the early morning hours of August 18th, Nazis from a group called “AtomWaffen Division” targeted at least one business, Pearls of Wisdom on the 5300 block of N. High Street with at least one poster. The business's website advertises it as “A metaphysical store, a meditation center, a new age community leader.” The flyer was removed this morning and forwarded to the Mockingbird by a morning jogger. It can be seen below
Atomwaffen means Atomic weapons in German. They are an international group operating in the US, Canada, the UK and the Baltic States. Some of their members have trained and participated in combat with the Russian backed Azov Battalion in the Ukraine. The group is known to have members in the United States and Canadian military and is link to at least five murders. They are also known to have plans to sabotage nuclear power plants and water supplies in furtherance of a global race war.
Police of course have not issued an alert for known international terrorists operating in the open on High Street, as the government does not consider white nationalists to be a terrorist threat. Indeed the government both locally and nationally only considers opposition to fascism to be worthy of investigation along with opposition to police brutality.
Only one government official, State Representative Dr. Beth Liston (D-21st Dublin) has spoken out against the nazi march in her hometown.
The Mockingbird will continue to cover this ongoing story. If you recognize any of the nazis in these photos we would love to credit them in the captions.
