August 29, 2013 Leith North Dakota (KXNews) – Even as this week commemorates Martin Luther King, Junior’s “I Have a Dream” speech, a white supremacist takes up residence in a small North Dakota village.
He’s pro-white, anti-religion, and says he’s peaceful. Since he went public with his plan, has the public’s response deterred him? KX News caught up with him to find out.
Little Leith, North Dakota, a town that previously saw about ten cars a week, now sees about ten cars an hour. It’s all since Craig Cobb came to town.
He’s known — even internationally — for his white supremacist views. He says his upbringing has nothing to do with it — or with his Spartan lifestyle. “You know, my father and grandfather built subdivisions and I had a really privileged life, so as odd it may seem to many people, luxury goods don’t mean that much to me,” says Craig Cobb, Leith resident.
What does mean something to him is his pro-white, anti-religious — but he says, non-violent — beliefs. Beliefs, in his words, cultivated by his experiences. “You know, it’s in my living memory the riots of 1965 through 1967, the cities in this country were decimated. So those will happen again, when the people who populate these areas, these urban areas, don’t get their stipends, their $3,000 a month, or whatever they get on average. They’re not going to be happy campers,” asserts Cobb.
He believes similar-minded people should be able to live in peace in this place; that is, Leith, North Dakota. “I’ll just tell you this about racial cohesion and about people loving their own tribe. It’s fine for all these minorities, but not us. If you merely speak about it, you’re going to be defamed in this country.”
