A Wisconsin man arrested on suspicion of domestic violence and owning hazardous chemicals is known to police for his white supremacist leanings stemming from a 2012 disorderly conduct charge.
Green Bay’s WSAW reported that a woman was found “hiding” in the home of 38-year-old Michael Tracy Anderson after he was arrested following a domestic disturbance call.
Police began following a car at the house Anderson lives in, the report noted, and saw a woman run out of the car and back into the house.
According to Green Bay Police Capt. Jeremy Muraski, the woman was “scantily clad” and not dressed for the state’s snowy conditions. Officers followed her into the house to do a wellness check and then found liquid and powder chemicals that are legal to possess on their own but could be used to make either explosives or meth.
The street Anderson lived on was closed off and evacuated for much of the day as the Green Bay Fire Department Hazardous Materials Team, the Brown/Outagamie County Bomb Squad and a SWAT team investigated to see if any bombs were at the residence. Authorities did not find any explosives during their search, the report noted.
Police photos from 2012 show Anderson with a number of white supremacist tattoos, including swastikas.
The report noted that a Facebook account believed to belong to the suspect contained “anti-Semitic content.” During a search, Raw Story found a profile under the name of a “Michael Anderson” who lives in Green Bay that resembles the suspect.
It contained a number of anti-Jewish and white supremacists posts, including an image resembling a swastika shaped into the letter “G” that said “Goyim Lives Matter,” a reference to the Yiddish term “goyim,” the plural of the word “goy” that means a non-Jewish person.
The term goy is often referenced by white supremacists who’ve reclaimed it and use it to describe themselves, as in the neo-Nazi “Angry Goy” and “Angry Goy II” video games.
