White Supremacists Show Up At Anti-Defamation Meeting

League Called Meeting To Discuss Racist Fliers

OMAHA, Neb. — Some local members of a white supremacist group showed up at a meeting Thursday night, which was called to discuss issues of racism in Omaha.

The Anti-Defamation League is worried the white supremacist group called the National Alliance is gaining a foothold in Omaha. The League called a meeting about fliers the Alliance has been distributing in Omaha. The fliers protest interracial marriage, immigration and violence by minorities.

“I consider these people dangerous I consider their ideas dangerous,” said Bob Wolfson (pictured, right), of the Anti-Defamation League.

Members of the National Alliance rarely make public appearances, but a few members of the group showed up at the meeting. They said they came to the meeting to laugh at Wolfson. One walked through the parking lot, putting fliers on car windows.

The flier had several statements defending the National Alliance. Regional leader Shaun Walker said he attempted to contact the mayor’s office several times about debating with Wolfson at the meeting, but no one returned his calls. He said Omaha members attended to take notes about public reaction to alliance activities. He also said it is not a rule for members to remain anonymous, but it is encouraged because of the risk of persecution for openly voicing politically incorrect ideas.

After the Anti-Defamation League’s meeting wrapped up, attendees headed out into the parking lot. They found the fliers on their cars. One man walked through the lot and removed the fliers, saying he was exercising his First Amendment rights.
