Few Marchers, Large Protest At Wis. Neo-Nazi Rally

WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) — A neo-Nazi rally in the Milwaukee area has wrapped up without serious confrontation, after drawing far more counter-protesters than marchers.

Several dozen members of the National Socialist Movement showed up to Saturday’s rally in West Allis. They were outnumbered by hundreds of counter-protesters, whose chants and drums largely drowned out the Nazi speakers.

At one point, 10 to 20 men in “white power” T-shirts traded angry insults with a group of mainly black protesters. Police in riot gear eventually surrounded them. There were no reported injuries.

The rally was a response to violence at the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis last month, when black youths had attacked white attendees.
A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report says police arrested two people on weapons charges and three others for disorderly conduct.

    These guys make it difficult for me to start my Caucasian Pride club. Maybe they can team up with the Hebrew Israelites whom nobody protests even though they are also disgusting racists 100%. for a debate.
