Neo-Nazi protesters wave swastikas on the doorstep of Walt Disney World

Updated: Sep 4, 2023

Yet again, hate has reared its ugly head in Orlando as neo-nazi/white supremacist protestors spread hate in full view of families visiting the area for Labor Day Weekend.

For the second time in months, neo-nazi/white supremacist protestors have targeted Orlando, with multiple groups of protesters who have been identified as being from groups, the "Blood Tribe", "The Goyim Defense League", and "Order of the Black Sun", who claim to be affiliated with the "Aryan Freedom Network".

Social media photographs and videos taken on Saturday, September 2, 2023, showed the groups protesting at two separate locations - both areas that have been targeted before by Nazi groups.

The first location on the doorstep of Walt Disney World at the junction of Hotel Plaza Blvd., and S. Apopka Vineland Road, was targeted by members of the "Order of the Black Sun", who were flying Nazi flags, and flags supporting Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

The second location at Cranes Roost Park in Altamonte Springs.was targeted by members of the 'Blood Tribe", and "The Goyim Defense League", who were also seen protesting at the overpass of I-4 and Central Plaza, displaying banners of profanity in addition to nazi banners.

In the lead up to Saturday's demonstration, individuals claiming to represent the groups were posting messages online, organising a 'March of the Redshirts' rally for Orlando.

The "Blood Tribe" and "Aryan Freedom Network" are white supremacist groups that spread anti-Semitic, racist and homophobic opinions, parading in military-style clothing, often while heavily armed.

According the the Daily Mail, former US Marine Christopher Polhaus, who has been linked to the January 6 riots at the US Capitol Building in Washington DC in 2021, founded Blood Tribe, and was at the protests in Altamonte Springs.

Meanwhile, the "Aryan Freedom Network" is linked to the Ku Klux Klan and was founded by the daughter of a former leader of the racist group.
