Law enforcement and Jewish organizations across the country are urging vigilance after a neo-Nazi group proclaimed this Saturday to be a national “Day of Hate.”
The white supremacists have called for followers to distribute anti-Semitic messaging with banners, stickers, fliers and graffiti. There are no known threats of violence as of yet. But these things are hard to predict especially in the less tolerant red states.
Several hate groups have said they are participating in the event: “Take a stand, and expose the international clique of parasitic vermin that infest our nation,” said a statement attributed to the hate groups. “Make your voices heard loud and clear, that the one true enemy of the American people is the Jew.”
Russian football “hooligans” are sending death threats to English fans heading to the World Cup next month.

The group has received emails telling them that fans from the LGBT community will be rooted out and attacked during Russia 2018.
“We’ve had people say that if they find us they’ll stab us, so it’s been a mixture but they’re being dealt with seriously and those investigations are still ongoing,” said Joe White, Pride in Football’s campaign leader.
Last week the Football Supporters’ Federation – in collaboration with the Football Association, and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office – issued a guide advising LGBT fans heading to the tournament not to publicly display their sexuality.
FiFA the Fédération Internationale de Football Association which runs the Wolf cup has come under intense scrutiny of its choice of Russia to host the World Cup and many countries have issued strong travel warnings to fans who wish to visit the event
Only 12 anti-LGBT potestors (not one of which was from Salina, Kansas) showed up to protest outside the Salina Community Theatre in Kansas where the Salina City Commission voted on a proposal that would make sexual orientation and gender identity classes protected from discrimination in Salina.
Narrowly approved on it’s first reading Monday by a 3 -2 vote, the change would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of classes protected from discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodation in the city’s current anti-discrimination ordinance.
City Commissioner Aaron Householter (pictured left) a strong supporter of the ordiance stood up proudly and fought aggresively for its passage during the four hour discussion that preceeded the vote even though most of the commissioners avoided interaction during that period.
When Phil Cosby, with the American Family Association, spoke about the need for transgender people to seek mental help and how same-sex marriage doesn’t create a family, Householter asked him for the definition of family.
“Traditional family, as in Genesis, male and female, ‘I say to them go forth and multiply,’ ” Cosby said. “One of the biological problems with transgenderism and natural and unnatural goes to the point of multiplication.”
Cosby said his relationship is more special than that of same-sex couples because he can have children with his wife.
“It is the plumbing, the design and natural law,” Cosby said.
Householter said he has a family with his girlfriend and her child but it didn’t meet Cosby’s definition.
“I have not gone forth and multiplied, and I have family,” Householter said.
Householter even came under attack from Salinan resident Carol Reed said she assumed Householter was gay based on comments he made regarding the ordinance. to which he replied: “Some people would think so because of my excellent taste in clothing and material objects but, no, I am not,” Householter said. “My girlfriend is sitting up there.”
While the ordinance has to be voted on twice by the commission and could pass the issue on it’s second reading next week opponents have promised an appeal would be made that could put the issue to a public vote.
Robert Noland, of the Wichita-based Kansas Family Policy Center, said he is already working on a petition which would have to be signed by 25 percent of the more than 5,000 people who voted in the last city election.
Last month the KFPC presented a petition to stop the ordinance to the City Commissioners demanding that the ordiance be stricken. The petition only had 344-signatures.
