Maryland Anne Arundel County residents spoke loud and clear to Council Chair John Grasso this summer regarding Councilman Micheal Peroutka‘s directorship in the League of the South. The League has been labeled a hate group by the SPLC. Although Micheal Peroutka resigned in 2014, Maryland League of the South members continue to support Micheal Peroutka at council meetings. County Council Chair John Grasso has attempted to shut down public comments about Peroutka’s membership at council meetings by threatening removal or arrest. Subsequently, Council Chair John Grasso was warned in a letter by the ACLU that his attempts to shut down citizen comments regarding Peroutka’s membership in the League are unconstitutional and deny the public their right to free speech. In this video clip provided by Anne Arundel County, Anne Arundel County citizens denounce Micheal Peroutka and John Grasso for his association with this hate group.
