Residents of South Plainfield made their feelings clear when an alleged hate group showed up to crash their town's iconic Labor Day parade.
A group described by the Anti-Defamation League as "white supremacists" joined marchers in this year's holiday parade, apparently without permission from the town.
Social media videos show the group's members hiding their faces with bandanas and being confronted by locals who shout plainly that the group is "not welcome here."
The mayor denied allegations that the group was being protected by law enforcement, pointing out that local officers had surrounded the group to protect innocent bystanders from any possible violence.
