Racist Craig Cobb maintains whites-only dream
The Southern Poverty Law Center has another article on its Hatewatch site about Craig Cobb, a former Vancouver resident and virulent racist who wants to set up a whites-only community in Leith, North Dakota.
Cobb is posting messages on the White Nations website, which was founded by a man named "Fred O'Malley", who was kicked off the racist Vanguard News Network site.
O'Malley is, in fact, Stanley Edward Diggs, Hatewatch reports.
"It is clear from Cobb’s posts on White Nations that he hasn’t given up on his dream of a white homeland, even given the bad press and uproar in Leith that has come in the wake of Hatewatch’s investigation," writes Heidi Beirich of the SPLC. "To show that he is staying put in Leith, Cobb has posted pictures of his plans for the town."
Not surprisingly, Cobb is getting a great deal of support on the White Nations site, according to Hatewatch.
"Cobb’s White Nations posts have been defiant, and he continues his aggressive promotion of North Dakota as a homeland for white supremacists," Beirich adds.
In 2010, Cobb was hanging around the Downtown Eastside and was known to frequent the local Waves Coffee House across from the old Vancouver Police Station.
He was charged in 2010 with promoting hate after he continually posted bile on his site about Jews and immigrants.
in a 2010 interview with the Straight, Beirich described Cobb as "a hard-core white supremacist who has been involved in the movement in multiple countries".
