A third group of white nationalist brought their beliefs to the forefront by a holding a movie showing at the Flathead Library on Thursday night.
It started with April Gaede, a woman who gained national exposure with Pioneer Little Europe and her daughters' singing group 'Prussian Blue.' Then came Karl Gharst's group, a group that claims they're Christians and are Hitler supporters. And now, there's a third sect led by Craig Cobb. He claims he's wanted in different countries for speaking out. He moved here from Canada in July and says he isn't a Christian. He wants his own lands for the white race.
"We want our own lands for our own people and with our own people in control. We do not want any other races in our lands. We want them on the borders, so we can teach our children the chaos that ensues on the borders," says Cobb.
Cobb and Gharst don't get along. In fact, Cobb just got a restraining order against Gharst. The one thing they do agree on is they want more white nationalism in the valley.
"The Flathead Valley, whether they admit it or not, they're here because it's white. This is a white area. It reminds me of Iowa 50 years ago. Everybody's orderly for the most part," statesCobb.
One group, however, organized a vigil on Thursday outside the library. They say they want a message of love spread for all people. They want the hate to stop.
"I am concerned that they are promoting the area for white supremacy and anti-Semitism and hate, and that's why we're out here," says Julia McKay a participant in the Love Lives Here vigil.
While three separate white nationalist groups try to take root in Northwest Montana, Love Lives Here vows to spread its message of acceptance.
