Law enforcement heavily monitored the march. But there were no incidents or arrests like previous Aryan parades.
The parade was part of this weekend’s Aryan World Congress.
Ailing founder Richard Butler has hosted the three-day event since the late 1970s. The congress met at a campground outside Coeur d’Alene because Butler lost his compound in 2000. He filed bankruptcy after losing a $6 million civil rights suit.
Jolted sideliners either shouted opposition or stared in awe. They held signs in protest.
And while 29-year-old Paul Bentz says the group has the legal right to march, it puts a bad light on a town with great people.
