Flyer for rumored white supremacist rock show

White supremacist rock band Aggravated Assault is rumored to be playing at an Outlaws motorcycle gang clubhouse in Kensington on Jan. 10.

The flyer suggests that Micetrap Distribution LLC — a white supremacist music, clothing, flag and trinket distributor — is a sponsor or promoter of the show. Micetrap's online store touts Aggravated Assault as "Extremely violent White Power skinhead rock 'n' roll from New Jersey's most infamous haters!" with songs including "Kill A Red," "The Eternal Jew," "Krystallnacht," "Fetch The Rope," "Sieg Heil" and "Border Patrol."

Aggravated Assault includes members of the white supremacist Atlantic City "Skinheads" (ACS), according to the Philly Antifa blog. The term antifa, short for anti-fascist, typically refers to leftwing or anarchist punk rock or skinhead groups dedicated to opposing racism.

Antifascist punks typically show up in large numbers in an effort to stop such events from taking place. But anti-racist activist Daryle Lamont Jenkins tells City Paper that "there will be no protest at the event. People feel this one, given the participation of the Outlaws and the Pagans might be more of a safety risk than normal events."

But it is somewhat unclear if there is indeed a show taking place. Contacted by City Paper, a Micetrap representative who did not reveal their identity emailed that the flyer "appears to me to have been made by the Communist blogs or Daryl[e] Lamont Jenkins."

Jenkins says that "the event is not made up" and that he doesn't "believe this was an event Micetrap and the band wanted us to know about. That flyer was circulated among their people."

The Micetrap representative accused anti-fascist activists of attempting to shut down constitutionally-protected free speech, writing "I have never had any contact with the Outlaws MC, so I have no idea whether this is an actual event. Since the United States enjoys freedom of speech, I really don't see any news worthiness of a music band playing a show, but I support anyone that is behind the 1 amendment. If it is an actual show and the Communists and Anarchists are upset, I think that's great. That's all I have to say about this and all further emails or contact will be blocked."

But on its Facebook page, Micetrap posted somewhat ominously today that "Numerous Communist / Anarchist websites have been spreading around this flyer. I'm not sure why, but it surely doesn't look like it's going to be a welcome place for them."

City Paper has not been able to confirm that the Kensington address listed on the flyer is in fact an Outlaws motorcycle clubhouse, and no Outlaws members could be reached for an interview.
