White Supremacist Fliers Found In Colorado Ask 'If You Are Fighting For The Right Side'

PULASKI, TN - JULY 11: A member of the Fraternal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan participates in the 11th Annual Nathan Bedford Forrest Birthday march July 11, 2009 in Pulaski, Tennessee. With a poor economy and the first African-American president in office, there has been a rise in extremist activity in many parts of America. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2008 the number of hate groups rose to 926, up 4 percent from 2007, and 54 percent since 2000.

Police are investigating white supremacist promotional materials that were found by soldiers at Fort Carson, Colorado, the Army Times reports.

Images of fliers found in the town were posted to Reddit earlier this week.

The Army Times reports:

A Reddit user who describes himself as a paratrooper, jhb2wr, posted to Reddit saying he and some other paratroopers “found about a dozen sealed plastic bags blowing around Fort Carson with this flyer and a CD inside.”

Reddit users responded, urging the soldier to turn the flyers over to authorities and not to put the CD into a computer for fear of computer viruses.

This isn't the first white supremacist incident in Colorado. Earlier this year, a candidate with white supremacist ties dropped out of a Republican race for the Colorado House, and in April 2013 a white supremacist linked to the killing of Colorado Corrections Director Tom Clements was arrested.
