Undeterred By Previous Littering Citation, Aryan Nations Activists Continue To Spread The Pro-White Message In Northern Idaho And Eastern Washington

Update: On December 3rd, the city dropped the littering charges against the Aryan Nations activists because the fliers weren't any different than any other political handout; consequently, it was perfectly legal to distribute them.

Apparently when Aryan Nations activists were cited for littering while doing a flyer run in Coeur D'Alene on Saturday August 8th, 2009, they simply looked upon it as a "supplemental business tax" and continued with their activities. On Monday August 17th, residents of the Trentwood neighborhood in Spokane Valley, Washington woke up to find Aryan Nations literature awaiting them on their doorsteps. Media stories from KREM Channel 2 in Spokane and KTVB Channel 7 in Boise. Discussion on Stormfront.

-- Uncut interview with Tony Stewart of the anti-racist extremist Kootenai County Taskforce on Human Rights

This time, the activists weren't caught. The flyers were put in plastic bags with rocks in them and distributed on homeowners' lawns around the area of Sullivan and Trent. The flyers spread what the media called a "hateful message" and provided an application to join the organization. A P.O. box listed on the flyer is registered in Athol, Idaho, where the Idaho-based Aryan Nations headquarters is located (there is a separate and different Aryan Nations group based in Lexington, SC).

Reports of the literature were also made to Spokane Valley Police, who are investigating, but say no specific group was targeted by the flyers. One of the activists is Paul Mullet (pictured at left), who moved to northern Idaho from Ohio five months ago because North Idaho is the "last stand" for the Aryan Nations movement. Mullet says he's in the process of buying a large amount of land in the area. Mullet told KREM news, "I'm bringing the church back and it's going to stay. The Aryan Nations in North Idaho never left, it's just been quiet."

It also appears there's been a second Aryan Nations flyer distribution in Coeur D'Alene, this time in the area of East Mullan and South 16th. The precise date is not given, but KHQ Channel 6 reports on it in this news video. The Rathdrum Star also reports that neighborhoods in Rathdrum, Spirit Lake, and Athol also received flyers. The first part of the Star's report is HERE, and the second part HERE.

Meanwhile, the Coeur D'Alene Press reports that in response to this renewed resurgence of literature distribution, mayors and police chiefs of several Inland Northwest cities as well as as well as the Spokane and Kootenai County Sheriffs departments will assemble at the old Interstate 90 bridge at the Washington-Idaho border on the north side of the freeway at 10 A.M. on Friday August 21st. Under the careful tutelage of the anti-racist extremist Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations, the group will condemn the "hate message" of the literature being dropped in Kootenai and Spokane counties. Task Force president Jo Ann Harvey will speak out and set the agenda against harassment and violence. Specifically, representatives from Coeur d'Alene, Hayden, Post Falls, Athol, Spirit Lake, Rathdrum, Spokane, Liberty Lake, Spokane Valley and the Coeur d'Alene Tribe have been invited to attend.

The Kootenai County Task Force is not the only self-appointed watchdog providing anti-racist indoctrination to law enforcement. The SPLC and the ADL are infamous for doing the same; indeed, the ADL has even sent law enforcement officials on trips to Israel to drive the lesson home.
