DULUTH, MN — Duluth City Crews spent Monday morning removing posters from a city park which appear to promote a group with alleged ties to white nationalist beliefs.
The posters seem to promote the group “Patriot Front,” which according to the Southern Poverty Law Center is a “white nationalist hate group” formed after the deadly 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charleston, Virginia.
City crews removed several of the posters from Leif Erikson Park Monday.
“Hate groups and hate speech have no place in Duluth,” Mayor Larson said in a statement. “Sadly, these groups spread vile, hateful, and racist ideologies. It is up to us, as a community, to reject this hateful behavior. We believe in dignity and respect for all. That is, and will continue to be the Duluth way.”
