We reported earlier that the Ku Klux Klan Nordic Fest was cancelled.
Well, it appears the owner of the property in the Chicago area who told police and federal officials that they didn’t know that the Klan was going to be using the property and it would be cancelled, lied on both accounts.
The Mokena IL has a KKK presence with the owner of that property, because most likely the property owner is KKK or white power sympathizers.
Chicago area ARA and other human rights groups should pay close attention and take note.

White supremacist rally back on in Will County
May 29, 2010 8:09 AM | No Comments
A small white supremacist rally is being held this weekend in Will County after police believed it had been cancelled earlier this week, but officials have had no trouble from group yet, a sheriff’s spokesman said.
The FBI on Tuesday had alerted law enforcement agencies about the event, which a few dozen people were expected to attend and which was scheduled to last all weekend. Will County Sheriff’s officers were in the area near Mokena where the rally was being held, and there was no trouble from the group as of this morning, said sheriff’s spokesman Pat Barry.
Barry had said Thursday the owner of the property near Mokena on which the gathering was planned had said he had cancelled the event because “he was not aware of the affiliation these people had.”
But “We understand there are people there,” and sheriff’s officers were keeping an eye on the property, Barry said this morning.
Barry said earlier this week the sheriff’s department has been called to the property, which is about an acre, many times to quiet “wild parties.”
The gathering originally was expected to take place in Kentucky last weekend until two people associated with the event were arrested on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine.
At most, police expect about 50 people to attend the event. Sheriff’s officers will be monitoring it for any trouble, Barry said.
