The Nation

February 18, 1986

Right-wing hate groups have chosen five states in the Northwest as a "whites-only nation" to be rid of Jews and other minorities, a coalition of religious and civil rights leaders charged in Seattle. The coalition warned that Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming are particularly vulnerable to the racist efforts because they have large white populations suffering from unemployment, particularly in rural areas. The active hate groups are the Ku Klux Klan, The Covenant, the Sword and the Arm of the Lord, the Aryan Nations Church, The Order and the Duck Club, the coalition said.
