Aryan nation supremacists are havin’ a weinie roast and picnic in beautiful Cascade Locks today. They applied for a permit for what’s being billed as AryanFest '05, and got it.
Well, I doubt they’ll be singing kumbaya or makin’ s’mores, but I know I won’t be goin’ anywhere close to where those lameasses are. I haven’t heard if there’s going to be a protest, though today's Oregonian quotes Hood River County Sheriff Joe Wampler as saying, "Historically, they don't have problems at these gatherings. This is a group that beats up people in alleys and does not make a spectacle of themselves in public."
Looking at KGW’s website, it turns out they’ve been moved by officials to land that is slated for the new Warm Springs casino. So let me get this right: the second biggest skinhead concert of the year is going to be held on tribal land? That's a little weird, isn't it?
