The Most Racist Neighborhood in America?

One man, one town, and a crazy racist plan.

What the hell kind of racist craziness is this? This is next level white power takeover type insanity. The New York Times has a story on a man in North Dakota who has buying up property in his small town in an effort to transform it into a colony for white supremacists: New Neighbor's Agenda: White Power Takeover.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, 61-year-old Paul Craig Cobb -- an unabashed white supremacist -- has been buying up dozens of plots of land in the town of Leith, North Dakota (population: 24) in an effort to populate the town with fellow, like-minded racist-ass people. There goes the neighborhood.

In the past two years, Mr. Cobb, a longtime proselytizer for white supremacy who is wanted in Canada on charges of promoting hatred, has bought a dozen plots of land in Leith (pronounced Leeth) and has sold or transferred ownership of some of them to a couple of like-minded white nationalists.

He is using Craigslist and white power message boards to entice others in the movement to take refuge in Leith, about two hours southwest of Bismarck. On one board, he detailed his vision for the community — an enclave where residents fly “racialist” banners, where they are able to import enough “responsible hard core” white nationalists to take control of the town government, where “leftist journalists or antis” who "come and try to make trouble" will face arrest.
There goes the neighborhood. Talk about a terrible way to get your town on the map. Thankfully, the other, not-so-racist people in the community are speaking out and strategizing against Mr. Cobb's master plan. Every so often you're reminded that there are indeed f%cked up people who are willing to take it this far.
