KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A neo-Nazi who made headlines when he bought land in a small North Dakota town with plans to turn it into an all-white hamlet is now setting his sights on Kansas and Nebraska.

Craig Cobb has purchased property in two small south-central Nebraska towns and inquired about property in two north-central Kansas towns.

Cobb said in an interview that he plans to sell the property at deep discounts to young white couples as part of an effort called Pioneer Little Europe that would create planned communities for white nationalists. The strategy is a national movement.

Cobb’s actions already have stirred fear in some of the Kansas and Nebraska communities.

Once Cobb’s identity was discovered in the small towns, word circulated quickly and residents warned owners to be wary of selling property to him. In Red Cloud, Neb., dozens gathered for a town hall meeting.

“There was a good showing of the people, good attendance,” Mayor Gary Ratzlaff told the Kansas City Star. “Let’s just say everyone is concerned.”

Cobb said other white nationalists have been buying up property as well.

Cobb purchased the Nebraska property at a Webster County sheriff’s sale on Sept. 23. He bought a house in Inavale for $3,410 and two properties in Red Cloud for $25 and $100.

Cobb, who was raised in St. Joseph, Mo., first created a stir when he started buying plots in the tiny town of Leith, N.D., in 2011 and later announced plans to turn the area into a white enclave.

Cobb bought some of the plots in the names of white supremacists, including Tom Metzger of White Aryan Resistance, Jeff Schoep of the National Socialist Movement and Alex Linder of Vanguard News Network. He flew Nazi flags on his property and sought to acquire enough power to run the town.

But in 2013, Cobb was charged with seven felony counts of terrorizing local residents with a gun. He was arrested in North Dakota, not long after attending a National Socialist Movement rally in Kansas City. Cobb eventually pleaded guilty to five misdemeanor menacing counts and one felony terrorizing charge and was sentenced to four years of probation.
