The Week of 15-22 provided many opportunities for PennLive.com to get a few clicks out of the mobile estates. Pieces and articles on the campus protests, the attacks in Paris and Governor Wolf’s decision to allow refugees into Pennsylvania all got the “Trailer Park Caucus” to step away from their AM Radios.
There was one piece from this that stood out to me. On November 20th, an anti-refugee rally brought about 40 people to the Capitol. PennLive conveniently mentions at the end of the article that the group who had sponsored the event was a rebranded, racist skinhead, group.
Some local activists remarked if this had been Black Lives Matter, etc, that the headline would have made reference to their role in organizing the rally.
What I wonder, is if racist groups may see a model in a way to merge with the far right of the Republican Party. Hide their message behind messages of fear of “the other”.
