Donald Trump is already changing America—just not how you might expect.
Self-proclaimed white supremacist Craig Cobb has announced plans to name his new whites-only town either Trump Creativity or Creativity Trump, based on his admiration for the Republican presidential frontrunner and his devotion to a racist pseudo-religion called “The Creativity Movement.”
Cobb attempted to create a racist enclave in Leith, North Dakota, with a community of other racists and was shot down. He is now attempting to do the same in Antler, North Dakota.
“I’d appreciate it if honorable men will stop calling me 14 percent black.”
His first attempt was thwarted by the city of Leith. He was cited many times for health and safety violations and arrested on arms charges. Sentenced to time served and four years probation, he announced he was “retiring” from white supremacism. A resolution that didn’t stick, obviously.
This time, the city of Antler, near the Canadian border, has countered Craig’s attempt to buy up a bunch of property by outbidding him for it, costing the city about $35,000, according to Mayor Bruce Hanson.
Like most racist “philosophers,” Cobb has had to come to terms with his ancestry. He had to expend a great deal of political capital “proving” that the genetic test that showed him to possess 14 percent sub-Saharan African genes was false, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
“I’d appreciate it if honorable men will stop calling me 14 percent black,” Cobb wrote on the white-supremacy site Stormfront. “I wish my Wiki could get edited. … They currently have me listed as part African-American. More Jew lies. I hope you can now see that at this late date in the matter.”
That said, he is a neo-Nazi who advocates for of violence against all racial minorities.
This connection between white extremists and Trump is not new. Prominent hate site The Daily Stormer endorsed Trump in June. In the endorsement, publisher Andrew Anglin praised Trump for having “exposed the entire scam of politics for what it is—a free for all run by shekels.”
Anglin’s primary point of agreement with Trump was on immigration. “Trump is willing to say what most Americans think: it’s time to deport these people. He is also willing to call them out as criminal rapists, murderers and drug dealers.”
