KALISPELL, Mont . -. - The Whitefish, Montana, Police Department says it is aware of the white supremacist website “The Daily Stormer” and its call for an “armed march ” through the city of Whitefish this weekend, CBS affiliate KXLH reports. Top elected officials in Montana issued a joint statement Tuesday condemning “attacks on our religious freedom manifesting in a group of anti-Semites,” CBS affiliate KPAX reports. The statement was released following reports that a group is planning an armed march aimed at Jewish residents and business in Whitefish. It was signed by U.S. Sen.

Andrew Anglin writes on his website that the march, once rescheduled, will “be bigger and have more guns and special guests than we originally planned. “

“It also appears that we probably have a lawsuit, given that their demand that we seek approval from every business on the march route violates our Constitutional rights,” Anglin writes. “Winning a federal lawsuit against the city would be an even bigger victory than the march itself. I was greatly looking forward to confronting the state-sponsored “resistance.”

Richard Spencer, who runs the alt-right National Policy Institute in Washington, D.C., is originally from Whitefish and his mother still lives there. In December, she said she has been harassed for her son’s views and been pressured to move as Spencer has become more of a public figure. 

Since then, Daily Stormer -- which is not affiliated with Spencer or NPI -- has offered to demonstrate on his behalf. The website recently called for a “troll storm” by supporters of Spencer against members of the Jewish community and businesses who have shown support for the human rights organization “Love Lives Here.”
