A white supremacist who’s trying to set up a racist enclave in North Dakota received a shock during the taping of an upcoming daytime talk show.
Craig Cobb submitted to a DNA test as part of an ongoing Race in America series on the syndicated “Trisha Show,” and host Trisha Goddard delivered some surprising test results to the 62-year-old hate crimes fugitive from Canada in an episode that will air Nov. 18.
As her studio audience laughed with delight, Goddard, who is black, told Cobb that test results revealed his genetic ancestry was 86 European and 14 percent sub-Saharan African.
Cobb took in the news with a fixed grin before looking around, as if for assistance, and insisted the results were nothing but “statistical noise.”
As the audience continued roaring its approval, Goddard said: “You have a little black in you.”
But Cobb disagreed.
“I’ll tell you this,” Cobb said. “Oil and water don’t mix.”
Goddard stood up and attempted a fist bump with Cobb, saying, “Hey, bro,” but the white supremacist pulled away his hand and refused to participate.
Cobb told The Daily Mail that he agreed to the test because he “assumed it was science,” but he dismissed the test results as flawed and produced by “craven and debased” television executives who aimed only to shock and “promote multiculturalism.”
He said Jeff Schoep, the leader of the National Socialist Movement, laughed when told of the test results.
Even if another test showed similar results, Cobb said he would still consider himself a “border guard for the purebreds.”
Cobb recently purchased a home and 12 other lots in Leith, North Dakota, in hopes of setting up a racially exclusive town he planned to call the “Village of the Damned.”
But the town’s zoning board approved a building moratorium and other procedural moves that would prevent Cobb and his supporters from living on property without sewer and water service or squatting there in tents or trailers.
Cobb has appeared on ‘The Trisha Show’ several times.
