Craig Cobb is reportedly planning to turn Leith, N.D., into a town of white supremacists.
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Cobb has been buying up property and inviting racists to live on his properties in the tiny town of only 19.
“I didn’t have a clue who the guy was until he showed up," said Mayor Ryan Schock to the Southern Poverty Law Center. "All I know is he bought that house sight unseen, $5,000 cash, and had no idea what it looked like, where it was, other than he knew the directions to get to Leith.”
Cobb reportedly posted on Vanguard News Network in 2012:
Imagine strolling over to your neighbors to discuss world politics with nearly all like-minded folk. Imagine the international publicity and usefulness to our cause! For starters, we could declare a Mexican illegal invaders and Israeli Mossad/IDF spies no-go zone. If leftist journalists or antis come and try to make trouble, they just might break one of our local ordinances and would have to be arrested by our town constable. See?
Since 2012, Cobb has bought more than a dozen lots for a few hundred dollars each, mostly from landowners who live elsewhere in the country.
The town has one mixed race couple, Bobby and Sherrill Harper, who spoke to the The Bismarck Tribune.
Sherrill said they were vilified on the racist website Stormfront.org, which said a "race-mixing white woman like her has no place in a White nation."
"I'm not sorry it's out there," Sherrill told The Bismarck Tribune. "The more people who know, the better."
