I read this yesterday and was a bit shocked.
Vice.com is identifying a Brookings, SD man as a neo-Nazi & the “go to guy” for vetting new white supremacist recruits:
A prominent neo-Nazi recruiter and podcast host has been unmasked as a 29-year-old South Dakota man whose podcasts, until today, were widely available on popular platforms like Audible, Deezer, and Spotify. These slickly produced podcasts have helped promote dozens of neo-Nazis and white supremacist groups, including a Nazi homeschool network based in Ohio.
Riggin Lynn Scheer, from Brookings, South Dakota, has been operating in the midwest under the name “Gordon Kahl,” in homage to the original Kahl who was a neo Nazi and anti-government protester from North Dakota who ultimately was shot and killed by law enforcement during a shootout in northern Arkansas in 1983.
Scheer has been active in the midwest’s neo-Nazi space for years. National white supremacist groups have used Scheer as their go-to person in the Midwest when they needed new members vetted, according to the researchers who have been tracking Scheer’s career for years.
Well, that might explain a couple of incidents that have happened around the community from time to time.
Scary and highly unusual stuff for South Dakota’s largest University community.

Russian spies and Nazis… in South Dakota! Of course some of you are more terrified by drag queen sightings.
Don’t forget about the swastikas painted on Brookings garage doors and such. Or that one time (maybe more, I’m not sure) a white supremacist organization put recruitment posters around campus without approval. Or when that Creationist Movement fella lived in Aurora. All that within the last few years. The Brookings area has no shortage of racist folks.
I would not be surprised if my old friend Lar was associated with another Nazi toking the demon weed. When Lar gets toked up he can be out there if you know what I mean.
South DaKKKota is filled with these types. Nothing surprising here…
Cue the apologists in 3…2…1…
