Matthew Heimbach, head of the Traditionalist Worker Party, has been called "the next David Duke."
A white supremacist rally in Shelbyville was met by police and counterprotesters, and a second rally was canceled.
Peroutka has been under fire for months for his involvement in and leadership of the League of the South, a white nationalist group that advocates conservative, Christian theocracy and secession to form a Southern Republic. Top Democratic and Republican leaders had called for him to resign from the group.
Michael Peroutka's neo-Confederate friend and supporter Michael Hill has advocated a program of assassination against journalists and elected officials. Voters have a right to know what Peroutka and other GOP leaders have to say about that.
White nationalists from the League of the South -- the premier neo-Confederate group -- are hailing the recent Republican primary victory of Maryland's Michael Peroutka -- who won his party's nomination in an Anne Arundel County Council race, as well as a seat on the GOP Central Committee there -- as "a political victory for us."
In all the brouhaha surrounding Jack Hunter, the aide to Sen. Rand Paul exposed as a longtime neo-Confederate activist this week, Hunter's past as the leader of the Charleston, S.C., chapter of the League of the South hardly registered.
