Toledo police have devised a tentative setup for the planned neo-Nazi rally in downtown Toledo next month, which calls for both police and a boulevard to be between members of the National Socialist Movement and the public.
The rally, slated for 3:30 p.m. April 18, also will close a significant portion of downtown to vehicle and pedestrian traffic and will be secured by several area law enforcement agencies. Streets, including parts of Adams, Superior, North Michigan, North Erie, and Beech, will begin to close to vehicles and pedestrians at 11 a.m. that day. Street parking will shut down the night before.
Those who come to watch the rally or to protest against it will be allowed in a designated area, just south of Jackson Boulevard between North Erie and North Huron, at 2:30 p.m. The rally is slated to begin an hour later in front of One Government Center. The National Socialist Movement has a two-hour permit, police say, though they don’t expect it to run that long.
No backpacks, purses, or signs on posts will be allowed into the area. The public will enter through metal detectors at Superior and Jackson. City Law Director Adam Loukx said the law department is still working on concealed-carry issues for that day.
Capt. Tom Wiegand, in charge of Toledo police operations for the event, said they are modeling rally plans after the way they handled response to the December, 2005 neo-Nazi rally downtown, which had a heavy police presence.
Captain Wiegand was SWAT commander in 2005 and has attended several National Socialist rallies, he said, adding that police will use best practices and lessons learned from the last two rallies.
“Unfortunately they’re coming back again, and we have to be prepared,” he said. “It’s better to air on the side of a larger police presence than a smaller one,” he said, adding that it’s important for the public to feel that the police are capable to handle whatever happens.
Captain Wiegand said some officers who are trained in crowd management will be dressed in some form of riot gear. Police will form a line separating the crowd from the neo-Nazis, who will be in front of Government Center. Police will be in the Jackson boulevard, and the public will be on the other side of Jackson.
Police said the top priority is public safety, and they said they will be prepared if the crowd becomes unruly.
Capt. Donald Atkinson, who oversees the internal affairs bureau for the Lucas County Sheriff’s Office, is coordinating the sheriff’s office’s actions that day. He said 140 officers are expected from the sheriff’s offices in Lucas, Wood, Ottawa, Erie, and Sandusky counties. In addition to Toledo police, Ohio State Highway Patrol will be also present.
Drew Dennis, staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio, said in the case of controversial speech such as this, it is important that demonstrators’ intended audience can hear and see their message.
“Everyone has the constitutional right to speech, no matter how distasteful, classless. or tacky it might be,” he said.
A strong response from neo-Nazi supporters suggests this will be one of the largest rallies in the group’s history, said Dan Donaldson, who serves as regional director. Mr. Donaldson declined to predict how many members will attend.
The tentative plan for officers securing a wide perimeter is standard procedure for these rallies. It's not surprising given the reaction 10 years ago in Toledo, said Mr. Donaldson, 36, of the Toledo area.
“They’re definitely out there to make sure criminals and gangs don't show up to break the law again,” said Mr. Donaldson.
Mr. Donaldson said his group supports the Toledo Police Department. Officers are patrolling the event not because they agree with the message, but because they protect citizens’ rights, he said.
National Socialist Movement members will follow police requirements to stay in the designated area and not engage in physical altercations, Mr. Donaldson said.
“Pretty much, we say what we got to say, and we leave,” Mr. Donaldson said.
Toledo police said plans for the rally are tentative and could change as the event nears. Many local groups are holding counteractivities that day and have asked residents to come to those or stay away from the rally.

The SPLC is a worthless organization and has way to much time and money on their hands.
Most of these groups or chapters in New Jersey are not even here anymore.
The Advanced White Society has been the most active in NJ since 2012.
They actually did pretty good by us in this interview.
The Advanced White Society, described in the report as a White Nationalist group, was cited with a base in Pemberton Township.
Founder Jason Hiecke, born and raised in New Jersey, turned the tables around and referred to SPLC as “the largest hate organization in the United States.”
“They portray anybody that does not fall under their beliefs, or conform to them, as a hate group,” Hiecke said. “Why should we be considered a hate organization because we want to look out for the advancement of our own race?”
Hiecke said his group believes every race should have the right to prosper “without outside influence of other races.”
According to the report’s map, three groups reside in Pemberton, including the two mentioned above, as well as a “racist skinhead” group known as AC Skins. However, Chief of Police David Jantas said his department has no interaction with these groups.
“I cannot deny their existence, but I can tell you that with Pemberton being as diverse as it is, we don’t get a lot of activity here,” he said.
Months ago, the department received numerous complaints from residents regarding the distribution of flyers that pushed a “distasteful, white agenda,” but Jantas said no crime was committed.

American History X is a 1998 American crime drama film directed by Tony Kaye and written by David McKenna. It stars Edward Norton and Edward Furlong, and co-stars Fairuza Balk, Stacy Keach, Elliott Gould, Avery Brooks, Ethan Suplee and Beverly D'Angelo. The film was released in the United States on October 30, 1998 and was distributed by Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation.
The film tells the story of two Venice, Los Angeles brothers who become involved in the neo-Nazi movement. The older brother serves three years in prison for voluntary manslaughter, changes his beliefs and tries to prevent his brother from going down the same path. The film is told in the style of nonlinear narrative. It was given an "R" rating by the MPAA for "graphic brutal violence including rape, pervasive language, strong sexuality and nudity".
Critics mostly praised the film and Norton's performance, which earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. In September 2008, Empire magazine named it the 311th Greatest Movie of All Time.
Danny Vinyard (Edward Furlong), a high school student and budding neo-Nazi in Venice Beach, California, receives an assignment from Murray (Elliott Gould), his history teacher, to write a paper on "any book which relates to the struggle for human rights." Knowing Murray is Jewish, Danny writes his paper on Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf. Murray attempts to get Danny expelled for doing this, but Principal Dr. Bob Sweeney (Avery Brooks) — who is black — refuses, instead informing Danny that he will study history and current events under Sweeney, and that the class will be called "American History X." Danny's first assignment is to prepare a paper on his brother Derek (Edward Norton), a former neo-Nazi leader who has just been released from prison after serving three years for voluntary manslaughter. Danny is warned that failing to submit the paper the next morning will result in his expulsion. The rest of the movie alternates between a series of vignettes from Danny and Derek's shared past (distinguished by being shown in black and white), and present day events (shown in color).
Derek and Danny's father is Dennis Vinyard (William Russ), a firefighter who displays racist tendencies in reaction to the news that Derek's English teacher, Dr. Sweeney, had assigned Richard Wright's novel Native Son. He also reveals himself to be anti-affirmative action, as well as against political correctness. Sent on a call to fight a fire in a drug den, Dennis is murdered by black drug dealers. In a television interview conducted after Dennis's death, Derek erupts in a long racist tirade. Shortly thereafter, Cameron Alexander (Stacy Keach) and Derek form a white supremacist gang called the D.O.C.
A skilled basketball player, Derek is reluctantly dragged into a 5-on-5 game against several members of the Crips in which the prize is control of the recreation center basketball courts. Derek and his friends win the game. Later that evening, Derek leads a large gang of skinheads to attack a supermarket that has now lawfully been taken over and owned by a Korean who was accused of hiring Mexicans to take control of the store. They wreck the store, robbing it, and Derek tortures an African-American woman before escaping after the robbery. The next day, his mother Doris (Beverly D'Angelo) invites Murray, whom she is dating, home for dinner. A dinnertime discussion about Rodney King and police brutality turns into a full-blown argument between Derek and Murray. When Derek reveals his swastika tattoo and threatens Murray with violence for "invading his family", Murray leaves and Doris orders Derek out of her home. That night, as Derek and his girlfriend Stacey (Fairuza Balk) have sex, Danny hears people (the three gang members whom Derek beat at basketball) attempting to steal Derek's truck. Derek grabs a pistol and heads outside. He shoots one of the thieves to death and curb stomps another. Immediately arrested, Derek is sentenced to three years at the California Institution for Men in Chino.
Derek is given a job in the prison laundry and is assigned to be the partner of Lamont (Guy Torry), a black man who is serving six years for assault. Lamont stole a television set from a store and broke the arresting officer's foot when he accidentally dropped the television on it. The pair develop a rapport from their shared love of basketball.
In prison, Derek joins the Aryan Brotherhood but, after about a year, he becomes disillusioned with the racist gang, particularly over the group's hypocritical friendly relations with a Mexican gang member, and their trafficking of narcotics. In response to Derek's criticisms, Aryan Brotherhood members savagely beat and rape him in the shower. While recovering from the attack, Derek is visited by Sweeney, whom he asks for help to be paroled. Sweeney informs him of Danny's involvement with neo-Nazis, and warns that he is on the same path as his older brother. Sweeney confesses that he hated white people as a youth, but eventually realized that hatred is pointless.
Derek further distances himself from the Aryan Brotherhood and changes his outlook on life. He spends the remainder of his time in prison alone, reading books that Sweeney sends him. He fears that the prison's black inmates will attack him, but they leave him alone, thanks to Lamont's persuasion. Finally realizing the error of his ways, Derek leaves prison a changed man.
In the evening that Derek returns home from prison, he finds that Danny has a D.O.C. tattoo. Derek tries to persuade Danny to leave the gang. Later that night, they both go to a neo-Nazi party, where Derek tells the leader, Cameron, that he and Danny will no longer associate with the neo-Nazi movement. Cameron provokes Derek, who beats him up. In response, Danny's neo-Nazi friend Seth Ryan (Ethan Suplee) runs after Derek and aims a pistol at him, which Derek wrestles from him and points at the angry crowd before running away. Danny angrily confronts Derek, who tells him about his experience in prison, which seems to prompt a change in Danny. Back at their home, they remove all the white power posters from their bedroom walls.
The following morning, Danny finishes his paper and Derek gets ready for a meeting with his parole officer. Derek walks Danny to school before his meeting, and on their way they stop at a diner where they are met by Sweeney and a police officer. They tell Derek that Cameron and Seth were attacked the previous night and have been hospitalized.
At school, Danny is confronted by a young black student named Little Henry, with whom he had a confrontation the previous day. Little Henry pulls out a gun and shoots Danny in the chest, killing him. When Derek arrives at the school, he runs into the bathroom and tearfully cradles his dead brother in his arms.
The film ends with a voice over of Danny reading the final lines of his paper for Dr. Sweeney. Stating "Hate is baggage. Life's too short to be pissed off all the time. It's just not worth it." and then quoting the final stanza of Abraham Lincoln's first inaugural address.
Ben Carson is a retired neurosurgeon. He's also a presidential candidate.
And in a recent GQ article, Doctor Carson called President Barrack Obama, a “psychopath.” He also described America as being like “Nazi Germany.” But before anyone who appreciates the 'external' attributes of National Socialism in an erstwhile historical context, that's not quite what Carson meant.
“I don't care about political correctness. You know, you had a government using its tools to intimidate the population. We now live in a society where people are afraid to say what they actually believe."
Also according to the Business Insider article written by Colin Campbell, “Carson reportedly compared Syrian civil war to the racially charged riots in Ferguson, Missouri....” When visiting the disputed Golan Heights territory that is currently under Israeli control, “an Israeli soldier told him the Islamist fighters are from Morocco and Europe instead of Syria. Carson said the US had the same problem of outside 'troublemakers' stirring up violence.”
"It's just like the troublemakers in Ferguson," Carson replied.
Does Doctor Carson know something some people are want to admit...that anarchists and communists are stirring the heated racial 'pot' in Mid-America?
Maybe it's just a few of Eric Holder's “damn punk”s creating trouble in Ferguson. Or, maybe it was “tools to intimidate the population.”
Israel SPIED on the U.S. when it was investigating Iran's nuclear weapons capacity.
Gee, will Capitol Hill EVER get over the shock of BETRAYAL?!
Uses the organization for self gain & is a thief and a user.
