ixquick-proxy.com_2016-02-29_16-21-49Sacramento Neo-Nazis Pledge to ‘Defend’ Trump Supporters at RNC | News | teleSUR English: Traditionalist Worker Party leader Matthew Heimbach had previously gained notoriety for assulting a young black female protester while wearing a “Make America great again” baseball cap at a Trump rally in Louisville, Kentucky, earlier this year. Parrot’s comments take place after his organization, described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a white nationalist extremist group, staged a rally in Sacramento, California on Sunday, leaving 10 people injured. The incident has fueled concerns about the potential for violent protests outside the major party conventions in Cleveland and Philadelphia this summer and in the run-up to the Nov. 8 presidential election. “I think everybody is concerned about the potential for violence at the convention,” said Ryan Lenz, senior writer for the Southern Poverty Law Center told McClatchy. The melee comes about four months after four people were stabbed during a scuffle between members of the Ku Klux Klan and counter-protesters near a KKK rally in Anaheim, California. In recent months Trump has blamed “professional agitators” and “thugs” for violence that has broken out at many of the Republican candidate’s rallies.
