White Supremacists Rally in Milwaukee

White supremacists are gathered in Milwaukee on Saturday for an anti-black, anti-Jewish rally on the steps of the federal courthouse. About 50 members of the Ku Klux Klan, the World Church of the Creator, and the American Nazi Party have been chanting racist slogans and waving flags with swastikas emblazoned on them. Some are wearing brown Nazi youth shirts or white shirts with red ties.

They say white people need to take back the United States. But their voices are being drowned out by about 500 counter-protesters who walked to the courthouse and began yelling at the white supremacists.

One threw a giant rock toward the group, but missed. Police in riot gear have been going up to the white supremacists and taking their photos.
