(Toledo, OH) The National Socialist Movement (NSM), the neo-Nazi group whose presence in Toledo sparked the October 15 riot, announced that they will be returning on December 10.
"We believe the City of Toledo deliberately allowed blacks to riot because the City government was afraid of appearing politically incorrect," White wrote. "It was this refusal by the police department to act, and not the numbers or the force of the initial rioters, that led to the North Toledo confrontation."
The delusional White continues to inflate his estimates of supporters at the aborted rally, now stating that 80 members of NSM and 60 members of the general public were "were forbidden entry by the police." He originally claimed that there were 140 supporters total, including the 26 that I counted in Wilson Park.
White also claims that the riot started "when NSM members, trapped outside the rally at police barricades were attacked by the communist-led black mob." You know, there is spin, and then there is outright fabrication; White's statement, however, is so far beyond fabrication that I think he actually believes his lies.
The timing of the announcement is likely a jab at Toledo Mayor Jack Ford, coming as it does the morning of Toledo's election. If Ford, who is already behind in the polls, loses the election, expect White to strut in his shiny black boots and claim that he "caused" the defeat; what better way to try and convice the white supremacists - with whom Bill White has a shaky relationship - then by claiming his actions caused the "overthrow" of a black mayor?
White's derogatory comments toward the Toledo Police have been puzzling; one might think that he would show deference to the men and women who protected his small NSM contingent on October 15. Here is a sampling of his outrageous statements about TPD (this one is dated October 17 ):
The Toledo police behaved absolutely dishonestly. They threw down their weapons, ran away, said "fuck this, I'm not get paid enough to do this", abandoned their positions, and behaved in a disgraceful and cowardly manner.
If there is any good news with this return visit of NSM, it would be that it appears the city has forced NSM into holding their rally at One Government Center. This site offers logistical advantages to the police, and keeps the NSM clowns away from residential neighborhoods.
In related neo-Nazi news, WTVG reported last night that a West Toledo man received a special present - a brick through his front window. The brick came with a swastika drawn on it with a black magic marker. The homeowner said that someone also drew a swastika on the tarp that later covered his smashed window.
