According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, the Detroit, Michigan-based, National Socialist Movement (NSM) Neo-Nazi group plans to hold a rally with the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) in Knoxville, Tennessee on August 14.
The August 14 event is being led by the NSM/Tennessee Unit of the Neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement (NSM), led by “Lt. Brian Culpepper.” According to the Knoxville News Sentinel report, the August 14, 2010 applicant was Brian Culpepper, who is describing the event as an “anti-amnesty” rally to urge Tennesseans to create a law “tougher” than Arizona’s new immigration law.
NSM’s Brian Culpepper told the Knoxville News Sentinel he expects both Ku Klux Klan members and “various other factions of the white nationalist movement.”
The August 14 Neo-Nazi event is to be held at Knoxville Market Square with a walk and further rally on the steps of Knox County Courthouse. Another group is planning a counterprotest.
The Neo-Nazi NSM group is encouraging Tea Party members to see them first hand, stating: “Tea Party patriots and those that have not seen the NSM in person are encouraged to come and see firsthand what our people and our message really are. ”
The Neo-Nazi group states that groups involved in the August 14 event will include: “1. Brotherhood of Klans: Guest speaker Imperial Wizard Jeremy Parker, 2. United Knights TN. KKK, 3. SSAG: Guest speaker Ted Dunn, 4. U.S. Presidential Candidate Brian Holland… Among the featured speakers will be Commander Jeff Schoep and members of the Officer Corps.”
Security Services Action Group (S.S.A.G.) was one of the post-George Lincoln Rockwell neo-Nazi groups, which was reportedly associated with street violence in Detroit. Virginia’s Brian Holland views himself as a “National Socialist” presidential candidate for 2012, and Brian Holland calls himself a “Majority Rights Activist.”
Jeff Schoep has led the Nazi, Hitlerite National Socialist Movement (NSM) for years. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) quotes Jeff Schoep as stating: “The Constitution was written by white men alone. Therefore, it was intended for whites alone… When you put on your NSM uniform, you are not just representing the NSM but all National Socialists that fought and died for our Race and our Cause! You are showing the Jews and the rest of the world that our Fuhrer is not forgotten and that his life’s struggle was not in vain… All non-White immigration must be prevented. We demand that all non-Whites currently residing in America be required to leave the nation forthwith and return to their land of origin: peacefully or by force.”
R.E.A.L. previously reported on the NSM’s plans to rally with the Ku Klux Klan and “Christian Identity” group in Midland, Michigan on July 31, 2010.
