White supremacist town in North Dakota could become a reality if Paul Craig Cobb gets his way. Cobb, 61, has bought up 12 plots of land in the tiny hamlet of Leith, about 70 miles southwest of Bismark, N.D. As reported by Fox 8 WGHP on Sept. 23, he is a widely known white supremacist according to the Southern Poverty law Center.
'He believes whites should be separate from other races,' said Heidi Beirich of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Visions of a white supremacist town could become a reality, but the town's 24 residents, including Mayor Ryan Schock, are against this. The mayor is upset and didn't even know of the existence of this group. Other residents are saddened and the town's only black family is concerned, but has no plans to leave.
This weekend, supporters of a white supremacist town will show up in force to show their support for Cobb. Antiracist activists who are also expected will oppose members of the National Socialist Movement, a neo-Nazi group. The sheriff is monitoring the situation, but cannot take action yet as no laws have been broken. Cobb is a wanted man in Canada for hate speech on a blog, but there are no plans to extradite him.
