By KATE ANDERSON
Neo-nazis are planning a protest against a Florida Sheriff who called antisemites a bunch of “scumbags” earlier this year, according to the group’s website. The National Socialist Party (NSM), which styles itself as the “largest and most active National Socialist party in America today,” is planning to hold the protest on April 22 outside city hall, according to NSM’s website. The city has been experiencing a rash of antisemitic incidents over the past several months, prompting Sheriff Mike Chitwood to organize efforts to “stand with our Jewish neighbors.”

During this year’s Passover, Christians and Muslims are also observing their own holidays of Easter and Ramadan. Greenspan says it’s a special opportunity for each faith to combat hate together. The administration is also planning to release the first-ever national strategy to counter antisemitism and says it will lay the groundwork for rooting out all forms of hate. Mitchell says that’s a mission his organization embraces.
