Florida white supremacists trained for ‘race war’ near Disney World

A group of 10 white supremacists allegedly trained for a “race war” near Disney World in Orlando before being arrested by authorities this week, according to published reports.

The arrests came after a confidential informant told authorities that the American Front, a skinhead group, was planning “to kill Jews, immigrants and other minorities,” according to an arrest warrant obtained by The Associated Press.

The group’s training facilities were just 11 miles from Disney World, the document added.

The American Front was reportedly modeled after Britain’s white supremacist group National Front, AP noted, but it faded from significance in the ’90s after a string of violent episodes that culminated with the murder of skinhead leader David Lynch in 2011.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups in the U.S., said that American Front has chapters operating in Florida, California and New Jersey.

The Florida group’s arrested leader, 39-year-old Marcus Faella, was allegedly researching how to develop the toxic biological weapon ricin before being taken into police custody.

"You can have a problem with the ideology of many of these individuals that Joe Biden has selected," Fowler explained during a segment on Fox News. "But you cannot question their qualifications and their abilities to do this job."

"Let's just think about this for a minute," he continued. "No matter what party you're in, you have to acknowledge that the Biden campaign and the Biden transition team is really looking forward facing. For the first time in American history, we'll have a woman vice president, we'll have a woman running national intelligence, we'll have an African-American woman at the U.N., we'll have a Latino man running Homeland Security. This is what America looks like."

Published

on

The last thing that President-elect Joe Biden wants to do is be inundated by crimes committed by the previous administration. Biden is a "worker," looking forward toward a future that repairs relationships with the international community, fixes regulations, revives government agencies and, hopefully, bring public servants back to fill positions. There's just one problem, however, Donald Trump.

Writing in the Washington Post on Tuesday, Philip Allen Lacovara, a former counselor to the Watergate special prosecutor, explained that Biden may not have any options. It's a sentiment, Andrew Weissmann, former senior attorney to special counsel Robert Mueller, agrees must happen.
