NSM Demonstration in Omaha.


The National Socialist Movement protested in front of the Mexican Consulate in Omaha, Nebraska Saturday, September 1, 2007.   About 50 or so Nazi’s and 100 or so protestors shouted back and forth for a little over an hour.  The event was controlled and disciplined by the police.  The amount of control took a lot of the sting out of the Nazi parade.  There was a huge police presence.  The message was clear, excercise your first amendment rights but make sure you don’t step out of line.

Magnatrometers were used for the Pro and anti NSM pens.  Both pens were far apart with barricades surounding them.  NSM individuals were seperated and placed in front of the consulate.  Horse patrol, K9 patrol, airwing patrol with 300 plus officers stood at the ready.  Most of the 300 officers were visible and in riot gear, placed within striking distance of all rally participants.

The local media gets a big pat on the back for this one.  No pictures on the news of Nazi flags, or NSM leaders in the papers or on TV.  Any pictures were subdued and did not glorify the NSM.  It appears the media realizes this is exactly the attention the NSM would like and they have resisted the urge to give it to them.

    Let get this straight from this point forward! 20 counter protesters and 60 NSM and supporters so do your fact checking first before running your c*ck holsters

    Editors Reply: I was there. I counted. I think the pro NSM side had about 7 people, in addition to the NSM number of about 50. Two blacks were also on the pro side. I am guessing they did not realize they were on the wrong side. I stand by the numbers as stated in the post. The counter protester pen hovered around 40-50 with another 40-50 waiting to get in. As the line entered the pen others would leave, keeping the number inside the pen constant at about 50. 50 inside 50 out = 100. In fact it could have been more then that but I stopped counting once individuals would leave.
