All about the Nazis
Good job getting into our march `"White like me," March 2`. Half our supporters didn't do as well. I enjoyed your article.

I just finished reading your story about the Nazi rally. That was a really great piece. I am currently working toward a degree in journalism. What you did was fucking amazing. I think the only way to get the whole truth in a story like that is to get inside the action. And you nailed it! I'm like an excited schoolgirl here. I am amped up and ready to go out and cover some stories. Thanks for the motivation.

I've just read your neo-Nazi story which gives an intense "you are there" feeling for this reader. I've been writing about federal fuck-ups for years but always from the safety of the home/office. You have just committed a hard act to follow.

My grandfather fought in World War II on the German side. I learned the truth first-hand about what happened during that period. The veracity doesn't coincide with the lies we're told. I wish you would join us, the first of tomorrow, the first of the 21st century. Be honest with yourself, the multiracial society has failed.
I look forward to the day when there are millions marching through Orlando and every other city in this sick country.

I am standing in front of a computer in a Valencia Community College West Campus classroom where I am proctoring midterm essay exams. I just read your article in the March 2 issue. It is exceptional! You are an excellent writer! Also, your initiative to "infiltrate" the neo-Nazi rally was, from my point of view, very creative and original, even though it has been done in the past by others. Thank you! I was on the counter-demonstration side at last Saturday's rally. My sign read: "A message to the neo-Nazi party: Racism in any form and at any time is deplorable!"
You have made my day! To me, such initiatives by groups such as the National Socialist Movement must be countered on all fronts. Silence, on such issues of import, only perpetuates injustice. While the neo-Nazi party is protected under First Amendment rights, we must not permit them to prevail without a clear response to their dogmatic views. I applaud your article! Congratulations! All the best!

Thank you for your great article, "White Like Me." We, all the way across the country in Olympia, Wash., are learning from it. The NSM regionally has a focus on our city now. They plan a rally in July on our capitol steps, and have already put out a national call to all white supremacists to attend. The description of how Bill White rallies the troops is especially helpful. The NSM even has a web hit list out on many anti-Nazi organizers here. They have dubbed me the "commie ringleader."

I just read your article online. It was excellent! I am going to share it with my students. I am a teacher at Jones High School, and my students live in the neighborhood the rally took place in. My students were very angry and upset last Friday, and I tried to quell their concerns. However, 15- and 16-year-olds are very emotional and they had a hard time seeing my rationale.
I think your article will help them see how pointless these people can be and that giving them any of their energy is allowing them to win and wasting their own energy.
