As Nazis, KKK, and militia descend, Georgia town shuts down public transport and park

In Georgia, the City of Stone Mountain is shutting down public transportation, closing a park, and urging everyone to avoid the area on Saturday, when a large number of neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and militia members plan to gather.


Located in suburban Atlanta, Stone Mountain Park is home to a giant sculpture of Confederate heroes.

Some call Stone Mountain "the largest shrine to white supremacy in the history of the world."

Officials say no permit was issued for a large event, but something's clearly in the works.
