27, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- More than a decade after the headquarters of the neo-Nazi Aryan Nations was shuttered and demolished, a protege of the group's late founder is building a new compound in Idaho that is already attracting white supremacists for Ku Klux Klan cross burnings, according to the Winter 2012 issue of the Southern Poverty Law Center's Intelligence Report, released today.
Named by Robert Miles, a Michigan Klan figure and now chaplain of the Aryan Nations, this "fifth era" is the present, a time in which Klan activity has given way to other white supremacist hate groups, such as the skinheads, neo-Nazis, and far right militant and "religious" groups that include Posse Comitatus, Aryan Nations, Christian Identity, and the Church of Jesus Christ Christian--a loose network including Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh and even the Unabomber.
The hate messages came after Kennedy interviewed notorious US racist Pastor Richard Butler of Twelve Aryan Nations on air earlier this week.
