Is a White Supremacist Group Planning a Music Festival in Boise? This Flyer Says So
The location is secret, no one is talking about it, but all signs point to this happening in Boise in September.
According to the Idaho Statesman, the white supremacist group Northwest Hammerskins are throwing a concert on September 30th called "Hammerfest." Which, may sound unbelievable, but considering they celebrated their 25th anniversary in Canyon County back in 2012, we're believing this may very well be happening.
So what's the deal? Where is it? What's it about? According to Sound Rennaisance blogger Dillon Price, details are scarce:
I must point out that many white supremacist websites and pages are disappearing. Hammerfest events ... are often coordinated in secrecy (underground web, secret forums).
While we don't know much about the concert, Nortwest Hammerskins website (which I will not be linking to here) spells out what they're all about:
A leaderless group of men and women who have adopted the White Power Skinhead lifestyle. We are blue collar workers, white collar professionals, college students, entrepreneurs, fathers and mothers. Northwestern Hammerskin Chapter represents the Northwestern United States of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota.
A white supremacist group holding a concert in Boise in 2017. This is sadly a real thing that is really happening.
