Expose of Skinhead that Worked with MSU-YAF

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s most recent issue of their Intelligence Project magazine contains a lengthy expose of Preston Wiginton, a skinhead who worked with Michigan State University’s chapter of Young Americans for Freedom to organize a talk by British fascist Nick Griffin in the fall of 2007. The magazine reports that Wiginton has been active in organizing “international connections between anti-immigration extremists and white supremacists.” According to the article, Wiginton “has become the most dynamic American far-right extremist making waves abroad other than David Duke, who Wiginton calls a good friend and claims to speak with twice a week.” Nick Griffin’s speech at MSU–which was attended by racist organizers–is just one example of Wiginton’s work on behalf of the racist right.
