Anti-Muslim bigots forced to flee at MN State Capitol

Anti-Muslim bigots protected by State Patrol, June 10.

St. Paul, MN – More than 400 people demonstrated at the Minnesota State Capitol building, June 10, to protest the ‘anti-sharia rally’ organized by the anti-Muslim hate group, Act for America (ACT). The small anti-Muslim rally included several white supremacist and neo-Nazi groupings.

In the early afternoon, about 30 of the bigots left the capitol building and began marching. About 50 members of the State Patrol attempted to assist racists, but they were outnumbered and out-maneuvered. For a time, the bigots were trapped in the bushes of an office building. The State Patrol then opened building and helped the racists escape.

Early reports indicate that six people were arrested by the State Patrol.
