White supremacist group set to march in Princeton on Saturday (1 Viewer)

Should be a fun weekend in Princeton.  I do hope only fine racists show up.

A white supremacist group called the New Jersey European Heritage Association has posted flyers in town announcing a march to be held this Saturday, January 12, at noon on Palmer Square.

Princeton Police Chief Nick Sutter said he is aware of the march plans. The police department is prepared for the marchers and possible counterprotesters, and has a detailed plan and staffing arrangements in place for the march.

“What we are concerned with from a public safety standpoint is any altercations between the group and counterprotesters. Our highest concern is safety of the public and the protection of everyone’s rights,” Sutter said.

“We are prepared and we have a plan in place. We are working with other partners in law enforcement,” Sutter said. “We want to ensure everyone’s safety, and have everyone’s free speech protected, and want to avoid confrontations. “

Such groups relish confrontations with counterprotesters and sometimes attempt to provoke clashes and violence.

Students at Princeton High School are organizing a counterprotest.

“Confrontations should be avoided,” Sutter said. “If people want to have counter-demonstrations, they should hold their protest demonstrations at a safe distance away from the other group.”

In November, about half a dozen men wearing masks, bandana and sunglasses held an “It’s OK to be white” march on Nassau Street. A Princeton school teacher confronted the marchers.

Members of the same group have plastered racist and anti-Semitic posters and stickers around town and on the Princeton University campus several times over the last few years.

The first bolded is exactly why I would advise against the second bolded. Counterprotesting gives them what they want. As difficult as it may be to refrain from going there and shouting down those dooshnozzles, I think its more effective to ignore them. Don't give 'em the satisfaction of knowing they're being seen and/or getting under people's skin. Let 'em look ridiculous being the only ones there. If they stop getting a reaction, they will eventually stop doing it. Don't feed the trolls.

Completely agree and I was going to comment on that.  I really wish people would just let them have their say and move on.  Don't give them the attention they seek.

if counterprotestors don't show up and media ignores these very few radicals, they'll melt away

"In November, about half a dozen men wearing masks, bandana and sunglasses held an “It’s OK to be white” march on Nassau Street. A Princeton school teacher confronted the marchers."

a half dozen ? 6 ?

Sick burn, bruh

The Ku Klux Klan had surged in popularity after World War I, due to its leadership's connections to passage of the successful Prohibition Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.[3] This made the Klan a political power throughout many regions of the United States, and it reached the apex of its power in the mid-1920s, when it exerted deep cultural and political influence on both Republicans and Democrats. Its supporters had successfully quashed an anti-Klan resolution before it ever went to a floor vote at the 1924 Republican National Convention earlier in June, and proponents expected to exert the same influence at the Democratic convention. Instead, tension between pro- and anti-Klan delegates produced an intense and sometimes violent showdown between convention attendees from the states of Colorado and Missouri.[4][5] Klan delegates opposed the nomination of New York Governor Al Smith because Smith was a Roman Catholic and an opponent of Prohibition, and most supported William Gibbs McAdoo. Non-Klan delegates, led by Sen. Oscar Underwood of Alabama, attempted to add condemnation of the organization for its violence to the Democratic Party's platform. 
n 2015, conservative blogs and Facebook pages started circulating a photo of hooded Klansmen supposedly marching at the convention. In early 2017, a pro-Trump Facebook group called "ElectTrump2020" turned the photo into a meme which has since been shared more than 18,000 times on Facebook alone. In fact, the widely circulated photo depicts an anti-immigrant march by Klansmen in Madison, Wisconsin, and has no connection to any political convention. An archivist for the Wisconsin Historical Society, which published the photo in 2001, stated that the society is "painfully aware" that the photo has been "misappropriated and distributed without our permission."[4] The term "Klanbake" appears to have originated in a dispatch by a New York Daily News reporter referring sardonically to the discovery of the KKK presence at the 1924 DNC convention. An investigation by journalist Jennifer Mendelsohn and historian Peter Shulman found no other mention of the term until it was resurrected by a Daily News columnist in 2000.[4][28] In 2010, the conservative news site Breitbart published a series of articles insinuating that the KKK is historically solely a Democratic organization, and hyper-partisan social media helped spread the "Klanbake" meme widely in the following years, helped by the fact that Wikipedia claimed from 2005 to 2018 that the convention was "also called the Klanbake".[4]

it was a hoax

https://pix11.com/2019/01/12/large-counter-protest-in-princeton-after-white-supremacist-rally-hoax/

PRINCETON, N.J. — A large counter-protest drew large crowds to Princeton's Palmer Square. It came in reaction to a white supremacist rally that never planned out.

The New Jersey European Heritage Association says its planned rally was simply a stunt that brought them "an unprecedented amount of publicity, media coverage and website traffic." The association said it never does pre-announced public rallies.

Princeton Police still came out to monitor the situation, which remained peaceful.

"If we don't come out and take a stand, you're putting power into their hands," said Sharon Buffalo of Long Branch. "That just makes them more powerful."

"The state of New Jersey has no place for hate in it, and we will stand against it wherever it shows its face," said Jacob Fugger of Mendham.

The NJEHA's racism isn't overt, but this statement on its website speaks for itself: "Our creed can be summed up in 14 simple words; we must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children."

Princeton Councilman Dwaine Williamson said he understood that a few white supremacists had showed up to the rally, but that they did not seem to engage much with counter-protestors.

people were duped easily by fake news
The group claims they spread the flyers while never intending to hold a rally.  The "fake news" was spread by The New Jersey European Heritage Association.

“You’ve been punk’d," said the post on gab, a social media platform know for allowing AltRight content. It was also posted on Twitter.

“There isn’t going to be a ‘march’ this Saturday, there never was," it said.

The group said it wrote that message because of the online attention the NJEHA has received over the past several days. Its website has experienced an uptick in traffic, according to the group.

This exercise demonstrates that the so-called ‘tolerant’ phony privileged limousine liberals of Princeton have no respect for freedom of speech," the statement reads.

“There are new developments regarding tomorrow’s protest /counter protest. Earlier this afternoon the organizers who originally posted the flyer announcing the rally, have now followed up that announcement with another saying their actions were all a hoax. We are still investigating to determine the legitimacy of that claim,” Sgt. Frederick R. Williams said in a statement.
