Neo-Nazi rally drowned out by clowns in North Carolina
A group of neo-Nazis held an anti-immigration rally in Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday, but their demonstration was overshadowed by a horde of cheerful clowns.
Local media reported that the neo-Nazis were outnumbered by about a five-to-one ratio. The clowns shouted “white flour,” while others came with signs reading “wife power.”
“The straight up message from us is you look silly,” said Lacey Williams of the Latin America Coalition. “We’re dressed like clowns and you’re the ones that look funny.”
The National Socialist Movement announced the event in October, giving the Latin America Coalition plenty of time to plan a counter-demonstration.
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the National Socialist Movement is one of the largest neo-Nazi groups in the country. Like the American Nazi Party that proceeded it, the group idolizes Adolf Hitler and believes only Caucasian people should be allowed to live in the United States.
