White supremacy group distributes fliers in Anchorage

Posted: Tuesday, August 14, 2001

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A white supremacy group has plastered east Anchorage with two fliers, one which warns parents not to let their children date minorities, police said.

The group responsible for the fliers is The National Alliance, a group based in West Virginia and identified as the biggest neo-Nazi organization in the country. A local branch was begun in Anchorage last year.

One of the fliers warns parents not to let their children date minorities, and another described the recent paint ball attacks on Alaska Natives as ''three White teen-agers and their childish misdeeds.''

The group targeted about 2,000 Anchorage homes on Sunday. The effort followed a similar drive last week in Eagle River.

While not illegal, police said they would like to talk to the people responsible for distributing the fliers. But group president, David Pringle, said group members have been instructed not to talk to police and refer all questions to the group's attorney.
