When a dozen neo-Nazis and white supremacists from the deadly march in Charlottesville were charged with crimes last year, they needed to find a lawyer. Their search for one took them to Deerfield Township in suburban Cincinnati, where they found James E. Kolenich, a civil rights attorney who said he has only one thing in common with his new clients.
He believes white people must save and preserve their civilization from Jews, immigrants and minorities.
"My willingness to get involved is to oppose Jewish influence in society," he told The Enquirer. "It's plain that white people are the chosen people in the New Testament. It's the job that we were given, to spread Christianity around the world. That doesn't involve hatred of other races, not even of ethnic Jews. But it does involve opposing their un-Christian influence in society.
