    Hour 1

    On April 16, a crowd of activists gathered on the New Jersey Statehouse steps in downtown Trenton to rally against illegal immigration, high taxes, and crime. What separated this crowd from others, aside from legions of cops and counter-protestors, were the Nazi regalia, Dixie flags and white supremacist tattoos, and the chants and speeches celebrating intolerance and the superiority of the white race. The day before, these neo-Nazis and skinheads were involved in a brawl in Pemberton, New Jersey, in which they fought with a group committed to violently confronting hate groups called Anti-Racist Action. Joining us to discuss that incident, and what we should know about hate groups in the Delaware Valley, is DARYLE LAMONT JENKINS, founder of The One People’s Project, a Philadelphia-based effort to track right-wing hate groups and people. Then, we’ll hear from MARK POTOK, director of the Intelligence Project and editor of the Intelligence Report for the Southern Policy Law Center; and FRANK MEEINK, a former racist skinhead leader from South Philadelphia and author of Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead.
