A Trump supporter recently called on a Somali immigrant to kill himself because of the Islamic State, the Associated Press reported.
The white supremacist told the AP he had been invited by the American Liberty Alliance, a white nationalist group, to speak at an event in New Hampshire. “
So he’s just trying to spread that Islam thing to get votes, and if he can get people to go out and kill themselves, I can guarantee you he’s going to do it.”
The white supremacist told the AP he had been invited by the American Liberty Alliance, a white nationalist group, to speak at an event in New Hampshire.
He did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The group was formed in March by a white supremacist, Nathan Damigo, and includes members of the alt-right, neo-Nazis, and other far-right extremists.
The American Freedom Alliance, meanwhile, was founded by James Alex Fields Jr., who was charged in May with murder in the killing of counterprotester Heather Heyer.
A police spokesman said the charges stem from a March 18 incident when the group allegedly drove a car into a crowd of people, injuring 19, before being chased by police.
In addition to calling for violence against Muslims, the group also has called for the deportation of “undesirables” from the United States.
In April, it also announced it was organizing a march on the Capitol building in response to Trump’s executive order banning refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries and suspending the admission of Syrian refugees.
In a statement to The Associated Press, American Liberty said the rally was scheduled to take place on June 4.
“We want to demonstrate that we can and will defend our country, as we have demonstrated in the past, from the racist, bigoted, misogynist Trump administration,” the group said.
“Our goal is to show the American people that our Constitution is still on our side, and we are ready to fight back with our Constitutional rights.”
The rally, which was originally slated for Saturday at the Capitol, was rescheduled to June 3.
