The town of Whitefish’s battle against white supremacy was feature on Rachel Maddow last night. The Flathead Beacon first reported the story. But if you go to the Beacon’s site, beware the comments section, which has been taken over by racists’ sickening ravings that make it obvious why the people of Whitefish don’t want Richard Spencer’s white supremacy group in their town.
Here’s last night’s Maddow Show – the segment on Montana is first up.
Maddow also skewers the local private Big Mountain Club. That’s because after white supremacist leader Richard Spencer got in a fight with a former McCain advisor on the chair lift, the club decided they could only keep one member – and chose the racist.
The effort to condemn a white supremacy group operating out of Whitefish through the city resolution process is being organized by Love Lives Here, a Flathead Valley affiliate of the Montana Human Rights Network. To help, you can donate to the Montana Human Rights Network online here.
**UPDATE- There are two entities- Big Mountain Ski Club-which is not involved in this in anyway and is a local community ski swap- and “Big Mountain Club” which is the entity Spencer is a member of.
Please help spread the word so that this great local group can stop responding to angry emails about Richard Spencer!
UPDATE: As of this morning, the online petition drive us up and running. You’ll be able to find it and sign here from the Love Lives Here Facebook page:
