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.

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.
