Your View: White Supremacist in Summerville
What are your thoughts on 'radical rightwing' White Supremacist Kyle Rogers living in your town?
Living in Summerville, White Supremacist Kyle Rogers may not have the attention of his neighbors, but he has drawn the attention of the Southern Poverty Law Center as a key player in the Council of Conservative Citizens, according to The Post and Courier.
The Post and Courier writes:
The Southern Poverty Law Center recently named Rogers one of the radical right’s “30 to watch,” saying he is part of a new crop of activist leaders bent on distorting democracy and fomenting racial, ethnic and religious strife.
Rogers said he has received nothing but congratulations from supporters. But he scoffs at the distinction, describing it as “childish name-calling” and an inconsequential scam to boost fundraising.
Rogers said he is not a racist or a danger; he’s just voicing facts and opinions that are ignored by mainstream media.
Rogers has written the following stories for the Citizen Informer:
- Cincinnati Race Riots of 2001
- ADL Exposed
- Kennewick Man. Who He Is and Why He Matters
- Myths of the Vikings
- Black Extremism
The Summerville area was plagued with pamphlets from a "white power" group in late 2011, but it does not appear to have connections with Rogers' group.
