The neo-Nazi Patriot Front, was busy flyering down Indianola Avenue in Clintonville Monday, February 26 in broad daylight. Whenever local residents removed them, the flyers would soon reappear. The neo-Nazis have now flyered Clintonville four times in the last few months in addition to Hilliard, Worthington, Westerville, and Dublin.

Clintonville activists and their allies made their values known with a large anti-racist demonstration Saturday, March 3, that drew about 60 people at the corner of North Broadway and High.

Here is a Patriot Front quote from Brakton Bragg, a Front leader: “This nation is the property of the founding stock and no one else.” I don’t suppose he’s referring to the Wyandot or the Ottawa founding stock of this land. On the flyer, they wrote: “Our goals do not end with a candidate in an office or a bill signed into law. Out horizon is set on absolute victory.” Hmmm. And even more violent language: “Resurrection through insurrection.

The resurrection they speak of is the rebirth of a genocidal white Anglo-Saxon Protestant America. The insurrection is one based on paramilitary so-called patriot groups. Hate groups rose from 892 in 2015 to 917 in the aftermath of Trump’s election. Ohio ranks 8th in the number of hate groups, with 35 groups. In the Southern Poverty Law Center’s analysis: “Trump’s run for office electrified the radical right which saw in him a champion of the idea that America is fundamentally a white man’s country.”
