Standoff Between Neo-Nazis and Antifascists in Pikeville, KY

When the men in black walked into her restaurant one Friday morning and sat at the round table in the corner, Brittany Porter knew exactly what they were.

Pale, skittish, aggressively tattooed, they wore black T-shirts with a cryptic white logo over their hearts. One had a razor inked along his left jaw and two SS lightning bolts dripping next to his eye like a double set of tears. One wore a handgun on his hip.

Porter went to the table, smiled and asked what they wanted. It was just after 8am. Two of the neo-Nazis ordered chicken nuggets.

On Facebook the night before, Porter read about the group of racists who were coming to eastern Kentucky to hold a rally. They had chosen an economically struggling stretch of coal country with a population that was 98% white and that had voted 80% for Trump. In their propaganda videos, the neo-Nazi leaders had talked about the scourge of drug addiction in Pike County.

At 30, Porter knew Pike County’s problems. She herself was a recovered addict, as was her friend Chrissy Wooton, another waitress at the restaurant. Neither of them trusted either political party. Wooton, whose husband is a coal miner, had voted for Trump. Porter had not.

Together, they discussed whether they should start the day by accidentally pouring coffee into the neo-Nazis’ laps.

    The wicked witch/warlock of the White House has enabled his flying monkey morons to descend upon the cities and towns of America to spew their hate to anyone who will listen. The intelligence level has dropped dramatically as the useless members of society increase. Go back to your mud bogs and swamps, we don’t need you or your hate.

    Plenty of “warlocks” across the political spectrum and within the “ranks” of civilians who never met a war they didn’t love.

      “We need to confront our national spiritual disorder. This disorder tells us that God doesn’t mind if we kill some children, as long as it is for a good cause.”

      Even if you don’t believe in God, the senseless slaughter of fellow humans in an offensive way as opposed to a defensive way is still legally murder.

      However knowing that fact does not prevent the mental carnage of murder from occurring in the mind as a sort of punishment from a source unknown.

      Save lives including your own, STOP VOLUNTEERING for other peoples wars!!

        Go further, like the Quakers, and refuse to participate. I knew a Quaker who spent 4 years in jail rather than be drafted for WWII.

    Took a shortcut to the Birch & Barley which turned out to take a bit longer at 54 minutes.
