WHITE supremacists are targeting Penrith in a recruitment campaign for a group that first emerged in the US.
The Creativity Alliance has distributed flyers at Glenmore Park and Kingswood and posted a banner on the Kingswood Rd M4 overpass recently.

“I remembered the flyers when I saw the flag,” he said.
