White Supremacist Town In This Day And Age?By: Jennifer Curra - September 23, 2013
After recognizing the efforts of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior and Rosa Parks, one may wonder if teachings against racial segregation are still relevant in the twenty-first century. However, for the peaceful, secluded town of Leith, North Dakota, this issue is not only relevant, but threatens to tear the town apart. Paul Craig Cobb is a 61-year-old resident of the town with aspirations to mold the local government into a white supremacist-ruled town.
“I don’t understand why all the different other people don’t say ‘whitey’ is pretty darn nice and clever. There are many organizations which whites have to support other cultures. Where is the organization of people from around the world that says let’s keep these white people? They’re pretty darn good, all in all,” Paul Craig Cobb said.
The following video shows an overview of Paul Cobb’s intentions for the town as well as opinions of other local residents.
Converting the town of Leith, North Dakota, with a population of twenty-four residents is just one goal set forth by the white supremacist. Paul Craig Cobb wants to continue voicing his ideals and promoting his message to other areas in the hope that nations around the world will listen and adopt these neo-Nazi principles. Paul is not content to have white-supremacy banners flying high in the sky, but aims to also discourage minorities from roaming the town as well. The amount of supporters likely to visit Leith and support Paul Cobb’s vision is not yet known; however, Paul’s conceived vision is clearly known. Mr. Cobb claims that his wishes are not intended to encourage violence, but are meant to be peaceful. He does not want to rule over other races, but rather prefers to have separation from other races.
In the following video, Paul Cobb provides more in-depth analysis of his views.
According to Heidi Beirich, a representative from the Southern Poverty Law Center, Paul Craig Cobb supports the notion that white-skinned individuals are distinct from other members of society. “He believes whites should be separate from other races. He’s also an anti-Semite, a raging anti-Semite, and he’s a member of the creativity religion, which is a religion that literally worships the Aryan man instead of God,” Heidi Beirich said.[Image And Videos Via YouTube]
