Los Angeles Times — Brian Levin, director of Cal State San Bernardino’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, found himself in the middle of a melee between the Ku Klux Klan and counter protesters on Feb. 27 in Anaheim. He said he was standing near the KKK members when several protesters attacked them with two-by-fours and other weapons.

Several of the Klan members jumped in the SUV and sped off, leaving three others to “fend for themselves,” Levin said. Levin, who intervened between the two sides, had been trying to interview the KKK ringleader, whom he identified as William Quigg, an Anaheim resident.

The article was published Feb. 27, 2016.
