White Power Group Involved in Stabby Sacramento Rally Is Going to the RNC To Protect Trump Supporters

A bunch of “white nationalists” who recently had a bloody confrontation in Sacramento with anti-fascist groups are going to the RNC. The Traditionalist Worker Party are pledging to head to Cleveland to protect Trump supporters from “leftist thugs.”

At least 10 people were injured over the weekend in a clash between the Traditionalist Worker Party and anarchist counter-protesters. The TWP, according to their website, feels that white people are oppressed by damn near everything in American society, which is a hell of a take:

European-Americans are the descendants of indigenous people of Europe. They are often identified on government forms as Caucasian or ‘white’. We believe that European-American identity is under constant attack by members of American institutions such as the state, education, culture and even churches. We reject racial supremacism, and believe all the world’s peoples should embrace and celebrate their sacred heritage and identities.

People on both sides of the Sacramento fracas were stabbed; police are being accused of responding veeeerrryyy slowly, allowing the situation to devolve into a stabby free-for-all.

Now, a Traditionalist spokesnazi tells McClatchy, in an interview we saw via TPM, that they’ll be attending the Republican convention as uninvited muscle:

Traditionalist Worker Party spokesman Matt Parrott, who blamed the anti-fascists for the riot, said about 30 members of his group would come to Cleveland.

“We’re essentially just going to show up and make sure that the Donald Trump supporters are defended from the leftist thugs,” he said.

Parrott said he expected Cleveland police to largely prevent violence with heavy security, although “there might be a couple of isolated skirmishes.”

“You’re going to have a relatively civil event where you’re going to have the leftists protesting Trump and you’re going to have us arguing up against the leftists,” he predicted. “And you’re going to have the police there ensuring that you’re going to have a first world situation and not some sort of ‘Gangs of New York’ knife fight.”

A “first world situation,” he says.
