Leith, ND Moves To Thwart White Racist Enclave
White supremacist Craig Cobb thought he’d found the ideal location for a “caucasians only” paradise in the middle of rural North Dakote and began buying up bargain property. It looks as if his master
race plan has hit a huge road bump:
The city of Leith approved a building moratorium and took other steps Sunday night to prevent white supremacists from living on property without sewer and water and squatting in tents and trailers.
Law enforcement was only required to remove Craig Cobb from sitting at the city council’s meeting table and to intervene when Cobb told members of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe they were off the reservation and should go back home.
Cobb, a hate crimes fugitive from Canada with extremist neo-Nazi views, purchased a home and 12 other lots and is encouraging others to join him in taking over the town.
The new ordinances will require Cobb to put water and sewer into his house, where three other white male supremacists and two young children are also living with space heaters and no working furnace.
The city approved the second reading of a moratorium that prevents any new building until planning and zoning is put into place. … Cobb said the town got by for decades without the ordinances. “Why now? Is it a wonderful coincidence that the moment I show up these are necessary? It’s patently unfair,” Cobb said.
He said he may rename Leith the “Village of the Damned” when he takes it over. He said residents are “evil and nasty.” …
The meeting was attended by about 50 people, mostly Leith residents and supporters.
With Cobb was Kynan Dutton of Oregon, a member of the National Socialist Movement, formerly the American Nazi Party. Dutton, a self-described skinhead, was forcibly removed from the Leith City Council meeting two weeks ago for screaming obscenities and racial slurs at council members and others. Dutton apologized for his behavior and said he was working to correct his drinking problem. …
Cobb said if the city wants to take action against him, it will have to sue his Cathedral of Creativity religion. He said he transferred all his Leith property to his religion last week.
