Northwest Front Materials Found at Fort Carson

Northwest Front Fliers at Fort Carson

06.19.2014

A United States military news source, Early Bird Brief, disclosed that a CD and a flyer with the Northwest Front logo and web address was circulating at Fort Carson, an Army base south of Colorado Springs, in the southeast corner of Colorado.  The flyer asks readers, “ever wonder if you are fighting for the right side?” 

The Northwest Front is a small white nationalist organization that urges the creation of a whites-only republic in the states of the Northwest—a dream that has circulated among Aryanists since the formation of The Order robbed banks, murdered a half-dozen folks and set up a clandestine structure in the mid-1980s.
