200 Anti-racist and anti-fascists protestors confronted the KSS on Leif Erikson day.
KSS memorialized the “first European to land in America” because they felt that it justifies their ludicrous claims that the US is a “white nation” belonging only to people of “pure” European Descent.
Keystone United, known until 2009 as the Keystone State Skinheads (KSS), is one of the largest and most active single-state racist skinhead crews in the country. While its members attempt to project a mediagenic image of being part of a new breed of more sophisticated and less spasmodically violent skins, the truth is that the group’s members have been convicted of a string of remarkably violent attacks dating back to at least 1998, ranging from bar brawls to murder. Keystone United frequently sponsors white-power picnics and music festivals across Pennsylvania, including the annual “hatecore” event known as “Uprise.”
