Idaho white separatist Mark Eliseuson under attack after building Klansman snowman

Neighbors got angry and police were called to a home in Hayden, Idaho where white separatist Mark Eliseuson built a 10 foot snowman with a pointy head holding a noose on his front lawn.

When deputies from the Kootenai County sheriff office arrived and spoke to Eliseuson, they told him he could be charged with a crime, creating a public nuisance. Idaho law defines such a nuisance as anything “offensive to the senses” or that interferes with the comfort of an entire neighborhood.

This is not the first time that Eliseuson had upset the neighborhood. In the past he has flown Aryan Nations flags at his house and on Halloween he gave the trick-or-treaters bullet casings.

Eliseuson told a local television station that he saw nothing wrong with his snowman, however one woman who was visiting her cousin in the neighborhood said it spread a “message of hate”.

After talking to police, Eliseuson removed the noose and knocked the Klansman snowman down.
