There Goes the Neighborhood: December 8, 2017

Imagine2050 Staff • Dec 08, 2017

There Goes the Neighborhood is a weekly series from Imagine 2050 staff highlighting upcoming nativist events.

This week, anti-Muslim activists headline a conference in Florida.

On Saturday, December 8, anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist Trevor Loudon will speak at the “America Under Siege” conference in Altamonte Springs, Florida. The conference is organized by Bear Witness Central, a far right group of self-described people “who have experienced Socialism and/or Communism intervention during their lifetime.” Loudon is a natural fit for the paranoid conference. He regularly likens both Muslims and supposed communists to existential threats to the United States and has helped popularize the conspiratorial “Red-Green Axis” concept within anti-Muslim circles. Randy McDaniels, the leader of the Jacksonville, Florida, chapter of anti-Muslim grassroots group ACT for America, will also speak at the conference.

Last month, Loudon joined other anti-Muslim conspiracy theorists at a conference organized by the American Freedom Alliance.

Additional information on this event and others can be found in the map below. A red star indicates events scheduled for next week.
