Nazi Propaganda Found Throughout Mitch McConnell’s Hometown: Report
Kentucky authorities said on Tuesday that Stickers promoting a pro-Trump white supremacist group were found throughout the center of a Kentucky town over the weekend, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Police in the town of Fort Thomas, Kentucky, said they were in the process of having public works employees remove the stickers that were put up by the extremist group Patriot Front, which supports Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
At least a dozen stickers promoting the group were found on lampposts throughout the center of town by a resident, who notified the police and began attempting to remove the stickers himself.
“I was not expecting to see that,” Bret Olson told the news outlet. “I tore it down.”
A few of the stickers feature an image of the United States with the message, “Not Stolen, Conquered.”
Fort Thomas Police Sgt. William Hunt said Tuesday that they hope it was an isolated incident but that they will be keeping an eye out to make sure it does not get repeated.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, a non-profit group that tracks hate groups and extremists, identifies the Patriot Front as a white nationalist hate group that split from Vanguard America after the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in August 2017.
The stickers appeared shortly after Southern Ohio native Alex Fields was sentenced to life in prison for killing Heather Heyer when he drove his car through a crowd of demonstrators in Charlottesville, The Enquirer reports.
