In the end, the call for white solidarity attracted roughly 301 people. One Nazi sympathizer attracted what appeared to be 300 counter protestors at Cazenovia Park Saturday afternoon. Carl Hand, a Nazi sympathizer of at least three decades, was the only person who turned out in support of the rally. Just a few feet away, a counter protest with the slogan “No Nazis in Buffalo” brought together 300 times that number. A hot subject on social media in recent days, the rally was organized by the National Socialist Movement, a neo-Nazi group based in Detroit. The organization, on its website, describes itself as the party of “every patriotic white American” and says its membership is open to “non-Semitic heterosexuals of European descent.” By the time word of the group’s plans began spreading, there was talk of a counter demonstration, fueled in part by local organizations and politicians angry about the rally taking place in their backyard.
