In this announcement, Schoep invites any interested NSM members, supporters, or fellow white patriots to accompany them, and has set aside some funding to assist carpools with gas money. Gas stipends will be given out to those in need of it upon arrival Leith, but one must contact them first to be approved for the gas funds. In a separate announcement, Schoep published a letter he sent to Leith Mayor Ryan Schock; here's the excerpt in which he makes the NSM's political objectives crystal-clear:
One of our goals is to make clear a simple message that Craig Cobb will NOT be ousted from the community. Craig is not breaking any laws or ordinances, and has a right to reside in Leith just as any other American does. I myself own property in Leith, the old meat packing/creamery building and the lot. It is not in the best interest of the National Socialist Movement to be hostile with our fellow local residents, nor would it be in the best interests of others in the community to be hostile towards us.
We are not asking you, or any other residents of Leith to change whatever political stances you may or may not have. If anything, you should see this for what it is, a chance at revitalizing a community, and a chance to be neighborly to your new neighbors, and vice versa.
KUMV Channel 8 covers Schoep's letter in a separate post.
Cobb continues to discuss the situation on this dedicated WhiteNations thread, which also shows that a media outlet has picked up on the NSM visit. According to KUMV Channel 8, the residents and mayor of Leith are unsure of what to do in response to the visit, although they don't plan to force the NSM out. Mayor Schrock said "We'll probably have to hold another town meeting to see what we can do and get a hold of some more people and get their opinion on it before we make any decisions. I don't know if it's right or wrong, I guess. If they can legally do it then that's fine, but hopefully it's just quiet. I just want to keep peace in the area."
