Yesterday, I told you anti-Semitism is creeping its ugly way into a supposed Easton Facebook group, along with a healthy dose of xenophobia blended with racism and misogyny. All in good fun, they say. But that's nothing compared to Ulysses, Pa., which has been tagged by the Inky as a "haven" for white supremacists. Ulysses is in Potter County, which voted 80% for Trump.
From the article:
“Personally, I don’t know about Trump,” [said local Nazi Daniel Burnside]. “You won’t necessarily see MAGA hats at an NSM meeting. We’re anti-Semitic. Something’s off about Trump with the Jews. That said, we’re strategically aligned. When Trump says something that aligns with us – close the borders, build the wall, look after your own – that’s good: We’ve been saying this for 25 years, but he has made it mainstream.”
“We’re still a white nation, and I respect that he supports that," Burnside added. “He’s also highlighted social problems. The kids who go to bed hungry, people who can’t pay their bills, the damage being done to society.”
