After being charged a security fee for an upcoming event at a state park, a white nationalist group is suing the state, The Tennessean reports. The founder of New Century Foundation, more commonly known as American Renaissance, filed suit yesterday in U.S. District Court in Nashville against the director of state park operations for the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. American Renaissance has held eight conferences at Montgomery Bell State Park, but in recent years protestors have shown up to the event, prompting officials to deploy additional rangers and security measures. The nationalist group is claiming that the 10 percent refundable security deposit now required of them is “unconstitutional.”
