A white nationalist was hospitalized on Monday after he clashed with antifascist activists in Corvallis, Ore., according to The Oregonian.

Jimmy Marr, 65, was involved in a fight with five other people Monday afternoon that led to him being admitted to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, the newspaper reported.

Police said they didn’t know what provoked the fight. 

Police also told the newspaper that four people were arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct but were later released. A crowdfunding campaign was launched Monday in support of “the Corvallis antifascist community who may have been injured or arrested” following the incident.{mosads} 

Marr is viewed as a leader in the white nationalist movement in Oregon, according to The Oregonian. 

The newspaper reported that he is known for driving a truck with racist messages. The truck is painted with a swastika and features the slogan, “Nazi is just the N-word for white men,” according to The Oregonian.

Marr has also been known to hang banners with racist messages on highway overpasses, according to the newspaper.

He has also espoused anti-Semitic views, telling The Oregonian last year that Jewish people should be exterminated.
