One neo-Nazi sympathizer attracts 300 counter demonstrators

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.
