The Oregon Country Fair, held the second weekend of July every year in Veneta, Oregon, will once again be host to white supremacists Jenn and Aaron Laskey. The Laskeys will be receiving their weekend overnight passes through the Recycling Crew [UPDATE: Aaron Laskey received his pass through the Lot Crew] and will be camped in Miss Piggy's campground [UPDATE: The Laskeys camped in the Maui campground]. It is ironic that a gathering known for its hippie-peace-and-love attitude would harbor Islamophobes, racists, and white supremacists. While the Oregon Country Fair describes itself as creating "events and experiences that nourish the spirit, explore living artfully and authentically on earth, and transform culture in magical, joyous and healthy ways," we contend that Jenn and Aaron's participation violates the OCF Code of Conduct and their toxic presence threatens the safety of other Fair goers.
We caution all Fair goers to be on the alert for this couple and their family which is comprised of high profile white supremacists. If the last name Laskey rings a bell, it is undoubtedly due to the recently released felon, Jake Laskey, Aaron's brother, who was found guilty of a 2002 neo-Nazi attack against the Temple Beth Israel synagogue in Eugene which he spent 11 years in prison for.

Above is a snapshot of Jake Laskey attending Jenn and Aaron's wedding. A close up of Jake's facial tattoos will reveal his "white power" and "blood and honor" chin strap tattoos. On the back of his neck is an "AF" tattoo representing the white supremacist group, American Front. To learn more about the history of this white supremacist group, read here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Front
Jenn and Aaron Laskey work for the family owned business, Wolfclan Armory, which has a storefront in Creswell, Oregon. A right-wing, racist establishment, the armory sells items such as Confederate flags, "Don't Tread on Me" flags, Nazi replica weaponry, anti-Muslim propaganda, and other nationalist focused materials.
*Note the above band "Screwdriver" is a white nationalist band
The Wolfclan Armory has a series of recent You Tube videos that are quite unprofessional and focus on regional politics that praise Trump and bash antifascist work, political prisoner support, and communist ideology. To sample some of these odd and crass recordings, view Jake Laskey, albeit masked, speaking here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwHuNc8i-ME
Gabe Laskey is another brother who shares similar white nationalist ideology and can be found working in the armory as well as featured in many of the store's You Tube videos. Here is a photo of him in the store:

[UPDATE: In the two photos above, Jake and Gabe Laskey are seen wearing their "Operation Werewolf" back patches on their vests. Operation Werewolf is a national, hyper masculine, white supremacist based group that serves as a vetting base for Wolves of Vinlaand. The group takes its name and symbols from 1944 Nazi Germany. To read more about the Wolves of Vinlaand, see this article: rosecityantifa.org/articles/the-wolves-of-vinland-a-fascist-countercultural-tribe-in-the-pacific-northwest/ ]
While Aaron and Jenn Laskey primarily represent Wolfclan Armory at regional gun and knife shows, they can sometimes be found behind the counter at the store front as pictured here. Aaron is sporting a "Don't Tread on Me" tshirt, and Jenn is wearing an "Oregun Infidel" tshirt. (The "infidel" label is a common anti-Muslim slur.)
The Wolfclan Armory-Laskey family is also connected to the American Front operated Greystorms Productions LLC, which is a white supremacist propaganda front. A sample of their racist propaganda can be seen here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JJ7q0QgI3E
American Front and Greystorm Productions propaganda are common on white supremacist websites such as ironmarch dot org. Here is a snapshot of Jake Laskey's wife, Amanda, who is also a participant in the family business and white power driven endeavors:
The foundation of the Laskey family sits with Aaron's parents, Allen and Jeannette Laskey who are internationally recognized white supremacist headpieces. Living in the Eugene-Springfield and Creswell area, the Laskey family continues to embed itself not only in the networking of neo-Nazi and white nationalist circles, but they also attempt to embed and infiltrate themselves in alternative community circles such as the pagan community, non-profits such as White Bird, and festivals such as renaissance fairs and the Oregon Country Fair.
