In Jacksonville, Florida, students and anti-fascist activists are planning a counterprotest at the University of North Florida today, as neo-Nazis plan to rally on behalf of a student who was suspended after posting a threatening photo on social media. The photograph shows political science student Ken Parker shirtless, posing with a semiautomatic assault rifle and with a swastika tattooed on his chest. Parker posted it to a Black Lives Matter-aligned student group’s Facebook page, along with a threat against the group Students for a Democratic Society.
