Neo-nazis have rolled into Olympia to counter protest Black Lives Matter folks. Avoid downtown. Travel in groups. This crew is no joke.— kimya dawson (@mrskimyadawson) May 27, 2015
Public posts from local neo-nazis can be monitored via stormfront.org. On the forum Stormfront > Activism > Local and Regional > Washington state. A recent post on this thread is about current events in Olympia. 1pariah posted today, including:
Also, invest in high quality LED flashlights, I have a FENIX brand strobing flashlight that was VERY effective in disrupting their chants AND disabling their cameras from photographing our peoples faces for future attempts of harassment.
Jimmy Marr and his wife (don't know her name) have long been a problem in Oregon. For instance there is a 2011 report of them regularly harassing people in Eugene, outside of a popular coffee house. The two photos here of their salutes are from that report.
Since Jimmy was active in the recent Olympia White Man March, active in photo ops at the time and forum discussions after, I've been reading up a bit on him. Rose City Antifa has info on him here (scroll down about half way). They state that Jimmy has been a long time member of the National Socialist Movement (NSM)and looks to be the main person behind American Freedom Party banner drops, which would include the recent one in Olympia.
Village Voice has an article up on the March 15 White Man March:
The Village Voice article includes an Olympia photo.
Perhaps Jimmy Marr and crew came to Olympia in order to do quick photo ops without disruption, photos and video they then can use for recruiting. Portland, Oregon anti-racists already had opposition planned.
According to this White Man March site , monthly marches are planned at various places nationally. The next one planned for 4/19.
If anyone finds a schedule for Olympia events, please let us know.
According to the white supremacist site Stormfront, there was recently a racist action in Olympia.
The Stormfront forum poster gave this info:"Activists from Oregon and Washington held our White Man's March in Olympia. The event was well organized and succeeded without opposition or other problems. OR and WA activists who participated in this event have been working together for quite a while and are developing into a pretty solid team."
A link in that post is for the American Freedom Party. (Info on the American Freedom Party from SPLC )
In another thread on Stormfront there is a discussion about the name being "White Man's" instead of "White People's", the concern being that
white supremacist women were not being acknowledged. Someone responded stating "There were 6 women out of the 17 at our event in Olympia."
