A white supremacist has been served over the weekend for shoving and screaming at a young black woman at a Trump rally last year.
According to the Lexington Herald Leader, Matthew Heimbach of Paoli, Indiana was wanted in connection for the altercation that took place in Louisville, Kentucky. Heimbach allegedly shoved and yelled at a black woman. The woman was a 21-year-old college student named Kashiya Nwanguma. She and others were peacefully protesting at the event when Trump pointed to the protestors and yelled “get ’em out of here,” according to a separate lawsuit filed in federal court. Heimbach and other men began shoving the young woman.
Heimbach is charged with one misdemeanor count of harassment with physical contact.
Heimbach is chairman of the Traditionalist Workers Party.
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a center that tracks American hate groups, this party “advocates for racially pure nations and communities and blames Jews for many of the world's problems.”
