White polo shirt and khaki pants

Vanguard America (VA)

Vanguard America (VA) is a white supremacist group that opposes multiculturalism and believes that America is an exclusively white nation. Using a right-wing nationalist slogan, Blood and Soil, VA romanticizes the notion that people with “white blood” have a special bond with “American soil.” This philosophy first originated in Germany (as Blut und Boden) and was later popularized by Hitler’s regime. In the same vein, VA uses “For Race and Nation” as a variant slogan. Following this theme, VA maintains that America “is to be a nation exclusively for the White American peoples who out of the barren hills, empty plains, and vast mountains forged the most powerful nation to ever have existed.”

VA has some paramilitary characteristics. In states with open carry laws, Irizarry, who uses the title Commander, and several other members have openly carried firearms during rallies and protests. The standard uniform for members consists of khaki pants and a white polo. At several venues, members have stood and marched in military-styled formations, and utilized military facing movements and rest positions.

Vanguard America is active online, particularly on Twitter, but is best known for posting white supremacist fliers at universities across the country throughout the 2016-17 school year. During the year, the ADL counted at least 32 incidents where VA fliers were posted on campus in Arkansas, California, Florida, Indiana, Maryland, New Jersey, Oregon, Texas, Virginia and Washington.

In addition to distributing racist and anti-Semitic flyers, Vanguard America has directly targeted Jewish institutions with hateful propaganda.

5. Oh, I thought maybe they were dressing that way in honor of DT's usual golf togs.

But perhaps that's just another reason why they like Trump.

10. Only people with native American blood have special bond with America. Whites hope it's

forgotten they raped the women, stole their lives, their land , their herds and horses, and all the resources they could, gave them diseases, on and on then colonized the land like it's their inborn right to do so like whites have done all over the world forever. It's time they lose their superiority complexes.
