N.D. town mobilizes to halt Aryan enclave plan

LEITH, N.D. – Residents of a tiny North Dakota farming town are fighting back after learning that a white supremacist wants to turn the community into an Aryan enclave.

Craig Cobb has been buying up land in Leith, a town of 16 people, and inviting others who share his views to move there. So far, no one has come.

Still, townsfolk fear he could succeed and are mulling the enforcement of property maintenance ordinances to get him to move. They are even considering turning over control of the community to the county to scuttle his takeover plans.

Mayor Ryan Schock says no decisions have been made by the town, 60 miles southwest of Bismarck.

Cobb says even if his plan doesn't pan out, he's raised awareness of the white supremacist cause.
