JWV Appalled by Planned Neo-Nazi March

Winter 2016


Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America (JWV) is appalled by the despicable neo-Nazi march being organized against Jews in Whitefish, Montana.

These white supremacists are aiming to recruit a Hamas member to speak at the armed march, and attendees are being encouraged to bring copies of Mein Kampf for a neighborhood kid’s story hour.

Although no permit has been filed yet with town officials for the march, blogger and march organizer Andrew Anglin has picked January 16, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, as the “James Earl Ray Day Extravaganza.”

This event was created specifically to target Jews, Jewish businesses, and everyone who supports the Jews. The names, photos, phone numbers, and addresses of the town’s Jewish residents have been made public by an alt-right website, The Daily Stormer.

JWV applauds the bipartisan Montana legislators who have denounced this appalling event, and we call on Congress to condemn this hateful act of anti-Semitism.

God Bless the United States of America.
