(en) US, Anarchists blitzkrieg Nazi picnic in St. Louis

Date Wed, 04 Oct 2006 16:14:15 +0200

An annual Saturday afternoon picnic for St. Louis-based national
white supremacist group, Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC),
turned sour shortly after one o'clock in Affton's Mathilda Park. "We
will rise again!" filtered through their PA just before dozens of
anarchists suddenly emerged behind a large "FUCK Y'ALL!: Social
Liberation, Not Anti-Immigration" banner. They surged into the
parking lot and up to the pavilion hurling insults of "Fuck you!"
"Nazis!" "Class traitors!" and "Delete yourself!" The sounds of
Sepultura and a chorus of airhorns, whistles, and bullhorns filled the
air and the mob plowed over one of their picnic table's and uprooted
an American flag. Several CCC men, including president Gordon
Lee Baum, attorney-at-law, moved into the mob and started a brawl
that the anarchists soon finished. In the end, at least two Nazis were
severely beaten and bloodied, another given a killer tittie-twister
(purple-nurple), and one stripped of his cane he was wielding as a

When police finally showed up, the mob had disappeared and the
Nazi picnickers were left to moan to the police about the ambush.
Police arrested a bystander (accusing him of supporting the
anarchists) and a Nazi picnicker.

Neighbors were generally horrified the CCC had chosen their
neighborhood to organize and preach their hate. Neighbors also
openly supported the anarchists for defending themselves after the
CCC attacked their banner and the people behind it.

A couple of the picnickers even disavowed their association with the
CCC. One who had been invited by a co-worker and had brought her
children, vowed never to come back. Another claimed she had
married into the organization not knowing the extent of what they
stood for. Others openly admitted they were running out of places to
meet, having already been harassed in North County and now this
episode in South County. To top it off, the following day, the CCC's
St. Louis website crashed and was offline for 24 hours.

The anarchists have sent a clear message to the CCC: "St. Louis is
not a hospitable place for you to meet. Delete your headquarters.
Delete yourselves. We have a class war to fight."
