Oatmeal Blogger Rode Bus w/Nazis

I’m told by a former SR colleague that gave me a heads up that The Oatmeal blog has a ha-huge following. Therefore, a post by the blogmeister that he grew up in Hayden Lake, riding a bus w/children from the Aryan Nations compound caught my eye. It states: “Most of the people that lived in the compound were elderly, but they occasionally managed to inspire a few younger skinheads in town to take up their moronic ideology and go around beating up anyone who didn’t fit within a certain ethnic profile. My bus route ran directly pass the Nazi compound and we always had to stop to pick up a handful of little Hitlers.” The Oatmeal blogmeister continues that he talked to one of the “little Hitlers” on the bus because the neo-Nazi urchin let him play his Gameboy. But that dynamic changed when a group of skinheads stomped his brother. (Photos & the rest of the story here.)

Question: Did you ever know any of the neo-Nazis or their children from the old Aryan Nations compound?
