KKK TO PROTEST CONFEDERATE FLAG REMOVAL …
|| By FITSNEWS || The Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (a.k.a. this group) will host a rally on the grounds of the S.C. State House on July 18, 2015 to protest the proposed removal of the Confederate flag from the north lawn of the building.
That’s their right …
S.C. governor Nikki Haley says they are not welcome to do so … but in a literal sense she’s incorrect.
Freedom of expression means peacefully tolerating views which are radically different from ours. And the Klan’s ignorant, repugnant, anti-liberty views must be tolerated – if for no other reason than their occasional reemergence within the marketplace of ideas reminds us how important it is to fight for the sanctity of freedom and free markets for all Americans.
(Including purveyors of hate).
Freedom of expression also means tolerating the Klan’s ridiculous characterization of Dylann Storm Roof – the 21-year-old white supremacist who has confessed to murdering nine black parishioners in their place of worship – as a “warrior.” In fact one Klan member told The (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier this week that Roof “was heading in the right direction” he just picked the wrong target.
Why should we “tolerate” expression like that? Easy: Because when we contrast such heartless indifference toward human life with the heartfelt forgiveness displayed by the families of the victims of this tragedy – we come face to face with the extremes of the human experience.
And hopefully find ourselves pulled in the heartfelt – not heartless – direction.
Anyway, in a video posted to the group’s website one of the Klan’s leaders – clad in a purple hood – lays out the underlying principles of the “New Klan.”
“The Klan in the sixties knew what it’s original purpose was – and what it meant to be a Klansman,” the hooded speaker stated. “They knew their job was to protect the weak who could not defend themselves. The Klan knew that to keep America a Christian nation, we had to keep the alien influences out of this country – out of our schools and out of our media.”
“The Klan knew that America was founded as a white extension of Europe – by our forefathers,” he added.
Here’s more …
You look at the Klan speeches from the 1920s and it was like a prediction of what was to come – and what’s going on today – if these alien influences and religions got hold of our power structure. They said they would try to put the primitive race of people – the blacks – on an equal plane with the white man, the creator of all Western civilization. The white race was known since the beginning of time as the builders of the modern day world. The Klan of the twenties, most of ’em they lived – they seen the violence of the Reconstruction era. They knew what the n*ggers were about. And it was the communists who come in here like I said in 1917 and wanting to set ’em free and put ’em on an equal plane with us. They’re not our equals.
And more …
The Klan told the Americans if we integrate our schools with the negroes all of Western Civilization was lost. There would be more drugs pushed on our kids by black kids. There would be more violence aimed at whites from blacks who think that we owe ’em something. They knew our government would start pushing the sins of race-mixin’ on our children. You see even then the world knew these people were not our equals – and the history of mankind has proved this. Point in a history book – show me a black philosopher, a black physicist. You won’t find one.
It’s embarrassing such views still exist in South Carolina – or anywhere in America for that matter. But as sad as it makes us to say it, there is a place for such hateful ignorance in our marketplace.
Which is we support the Klan’s right to rally.
The Klan’s belief system – which aims to exclude all non-whites from the benefits of life, liberty and prosperity – must be tolerated because it provides us with a compelling reminder that such ugly divisiveness must never be embraced by government at any level.
In other words it is a reminder of our right – and our obligation – to rebuke the fundamental dehumanization of our fellow Americans.
@fitsnews ugh. Best thing to do is for the media to give NO publicity to them or the rally. Everyone should literally ignore it!

I thought this was a Klan group out of North Carolina coming down into our state? Not South Carolina. Can you clarify?
Pelham, North Carolina
…Peckerwood capitol of the South.
Their SC brothers will be there with them. All 240 of them.
Try 130, maybe, on a good day, if Lester and Willie aren’t in jail.
The rally is on a Saturday at least half of them will be too drunk on PBR to drive to Columbia by rally time. SCHP might have some fun locking up drunk Cyclopes, Goblins, Dragons, and Ghouls on the local highways though.
They’re normally fairly careful driving to events, it’s the drive home that get’s them in trouble. They invariably stop some place to drink a beer or two and tell war stories from the event before heading on home.
That’s when the Highway Patrol likes to turn the bubblegum lights on and stroll up to the car, momentarily stopping to adjust their Sam Browne belt before leaning in the window to smile and say “license and registration – peckerwoood”.
You seem very familiar with Klan dress and operating procedure.
The little town I grew up in outside of Atlanta had a problem with these peckerheads – I can’t stand them. I pay a little more attention to these types of groups than most people because of that experience.
One of my NCOs is a SCHP patrolman and loves to tell the story of pulling one of these idiots over while he was dressed in full regalia sans “dunce cap”.
Boy, I’d feel foolish.
Colonel you are aging yourself
The boys and girls today turn on their Christmas Tree LED lights, stand behind the car door with gun in hand and yell out – hey you, that’s right you mother fucker – stick both arms out of the window and if you only have one arm then you best get one leg out as well
Sam Browne is seldom seen except on special occasions such as funerals or when politicians force them to perform as Eunuchs at their publicity events
ps A well oiled Sam Browne is also a very effective disciplinary tool when applied to the ass of a smart mouthed 12 year old
Great – snorted root beer on the key board again “…stick both arms out of the window and if you only have one arm then you best get one leg out as well…”
Downing a case or 2 of Long Neck PBRs has preceded many incidents that do not need to be repeated
With that said, an ice cold Long Neck PBR is welcomed anytime on a hot summer day in Carolina
Should they switch to 40 oz. malt liquor?
Hey, Pabst is damned good beer. They’re clearly drinking Milwaukee’s Best. That or their own pee.
It’s good that you acknowledge they are not a massive force. And that fact is an important one, that says there may yet be hope for this state.
It looks like a franchise operation. The Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan has 15 chapters in different states, mostly in North Carolina the following list.
The Complete List of American Cities Where the KKK Is Known to Operate
Google map of KKK locations from SPLC.
Would not be surprised to see a larger than expected Klan turnout @ the State House if members from several chapters attend.
Good to see you commenting again. Shit’s gettin’ real crazy now, huh?
Newton’s Third Law: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
He lies about the Klan of the 1920’s they were defenders of public schools and wanted to force all parents to send their children to public schools.
Yes “public” whites only Christian Schools. So what they wanted was for the state to pay for white only religious schools, just like the school choice people do today. So the more things change the more they remain the same..
Not nessasarily Chistians or white. But definitely not Chatholic.
Do you think the liberal establishment is any better for wanting to force secular education on all children.
Even if they aren’t forced, if they choose religious education for their children they have to pay for both systems even though they use only one.
No one is forced to be educated in public schools. It is simply offered free of charge.
“If they choose religious education for their children they have to pay for both systems even though they use only one”.
Their choice. No different than people who don’t use public transportation; people who don’t use the Ravenel Bridge; people who drive cars and take trains instead of airplanes and don’t need airports; people who don’t live in flood zones and don’t need government subsidized flood insurance; etc. etc. etc..
Funny, when ACORN and the NAACP came out against the flag, you showed no outrage. I guess a Klan is OK with you, if it’s your Klan.
Racism is a sin, no matter which Democrat is doing it.
You think that guy’s a Democrat, pogo.
LMAO LMAO LMAO LMAO
Are you defending ACORN and the NAACP, and claiming they are not racist?
I do see ACORN as having been a racist org in many ways. With the NAACP, it’s a mixed bag. Some of their actions lean that way. Others not. On their opposition to the flag, they are on the right side of the issue. Not even sure why I’m bothering to comment to you, however.
Take a stroll onto your average racist website and take a gander at who they support. It ain’t Democrats!
Purple robes? Is this the new “fashion forward” Klan?
He’s the Grand Exalted Barney – a position closely related to the lieutenant gubernor of South Carolina if wardrobe is any indication…
I wondered why the Loot Guv wears a purple robe? I knew he wasn’t an AME preacher.
There was probably some truth to it in the past…
He’s a one eyed one, one cone, waddling purple people hater.
Let’s see here. Maybe he’s the Grand Dinosaur. Like Barney.
I hate you, you hate me
Let’s go have a rallllllly
With a some support from TV
we’ll be luck to have three
including me and thee.
No, it’s like this –
I hate you, ’cause yer black,
Pulled pork gave me a heart attack –
“I hate you, you hate me”
lol…very good, +1
That is their new rainbow robe. The KKK will be celebrating the Supreme Court decision on gay marriage all this month..
We’ll I’ve read a lot of high ranking Klan’s men loved other Klan’s men.
Just take down the damned flag already. I thought they were going to include it in the final budget bill Nikki’s supposed to sign like today or tomorrow. No flag, no Klan – no Klan, no band.
Klan Rally=Gay Pride Parades
End em both
Covering their faces isn’t the only thing the Klan and ISIS have in common.
Look who else is coming
Meanwhile, African-American children starve, black men cannot get a job in this economy, and food stamp usage in the black community is at record levels. And the Democrat Party leaders just laugh, and count all the billions they have collected from the stupid and hateful since 2008.
You = klan member
Don’t worry, the FBI keeps files on racist groups, so he’s got eyes on him.
Sometimes you have to do more than put your hand out if you want something. Life is hard, and harder if you’re lazy.
And even harder once you elect a Democrat who hates capitalism, no matter how much you choose to put your faith in racism. .
Odd, because I don’t understand then why Obama is negotiating a capitalist free trade deal, and how unemployment is down to 5.3%
All i can think about is the episode of southpark where they take on the flag issue. One of the flag supporters who doesnt want the flag to be associated with racism infiltrates the Klan and convinces them to support taking it down, because whatever the Klan supports everyone else is going to go against
I thought “Clemson Day” at the State House was in May!
I would loveeeeeeeeee to see Haley try to stop this. The skank will be arrested for criminal civil rights crimes. TOO FUNNY!!!
It would be funny to see her get arrested, I will give you that.
You have to wonder what face is behind that hood!
Look it’s a bunch of cowards hiding themselves behind masks in silly costumes that were created by democrats to be worn as part of a racist secret society created by democrats, holding a flag created by democrats.
Who is defending the flag today? What party? What talking heads? What politicians?
It’s an amorphous cyclical dialogue, at the tongues of a two headed snake. Thanks Fritz Hollings (D).
If you looked under the hood you might see a democrat, who knows. Do you deny any of the facts that was in my previous post? The democrats created the problem and have duped you in to believing that they are the solution to the problem.
Were these brave men racists? Do they not deserve to be recognized for fighting for what they believed to be right? Maybe your willingness to hate and assign blame has clouded your judgment.
Yea, but you guys took all those costumes with you when you left the Democratic party and became Republicans.
A myth created by the democratic party to capture the black vote. They created the problem and pretend to be the solution.
You are obviously not from SC. Because only an idiot is unaware of the migration of racist from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party during the 60s, 70s and early 80s. You guys can lie all you want. You can pretend and try to deflect from your history all you want, but nobody is stupid enough to listen any more.
Again, You are making assumptions based on your own prejudices that you cannot provide facts to support. I am from here. I believe in States Rights. I believe in limited government. I believe in fiscal responsibility. I abhor slavery. I abhor racism. If you think all democrats are against racism and all republicans are for it then you are a narrow minded person that cannot think for yourself. You are product of the propaganda that has been generated by the democratic party.
In 1961 all Democrats were not racists, but almost all racists were Democrats. In 2015 not all Republicans are racists, but almost all racists are Republicans. That just reflects simple reality. The same people are still fighting the same battles, Just a new name.
This shift of party is a result of the Republican’s Southern Strategy as articulated by Lee Atwater on his death bed. You reap what you sow.
You are making generalizations to support your erroneous point of view. What is the reference that you used to determine the voting habits of racists?
Are you saying that all of the black people that hate white people for being white are republicans?
Those are Republican cowards behind those masks, of that there is no doubt. . How many Democrats have you seen defending the flag. Zero.
Unless you can see behind those masks you have no way of knowing, unless you are a member. There are racists in both parties but neither party is defined by it. The democratic party chooses to racebait to fan the flames and garner votes.
I don’t have to see behind the mask. I grew up here. The politics of these people are as predictable as the rising of the sun. They show up at clan rallies with their mask on and Tea Party rallies with their mask off.
But you guys can’t hide anymore. The Republican southern strategy of using racism to pit poor whites against poor blacks is beginning to crack. The flag is just the first sign.
Check the voting records. A lot of democrats voted for the flag to be placed at it’s current location on the Statehouse grounds. That means they supported it being where it is at.
Is this guy a republican and a racist?
Tillman Statue Defaced. The shaft of Gonzalez quivers in delight.
Former Senator Slams Washington As Corrupt “Sewer”, Calls For Outraged Young Americans To Revolt
Thieving oligarchy in pursuit of money and power at the expense of the public good
If Sen. Bright keeps his pie-hole shut, the flag can be down a week before the rally.
Could be an FBI agent or an SPLC plant.
*Sputters and points*
That man’s a spy! He’s an undercover agent for the FBI! He was sent down here to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan…
He may look dumb, but that’s just a disguise! He’s a mastermind in the ways of espionage!! TBG’s heard he’s gone as far… as tearing Lee Bright stickers of the bumpers of cars and voted Barack Obama for President!!!!!
C. D. B.
Aren’t like 75% of Klan members federal agents?
I knew a retired federal agent that went undercover with a Neo-Nazi group for several year. He has some interesting tattoos on both his arms. Has to wear long sleeves 90% of the time.
Dang fools with confederate flag tattoos will have to be hiding them soon too. If they want employment outside of the Deep South.
Best-time working I looked at the draft which said [email protected]
If the flag isn’t a symbol of racism, then why are the KKK marching to keep it up?
Everyone knows what it means to the KKK, but like most symbols, it means different things to different people.
“I don’t get all choked up about yellow ribbons and American flags.I consider them to be symbols and I leave symbols to the symbol minded.”- George Carlin
No, it symbolizes white supremacy. You can split as many hairs as you like, but that was it’s original meaning and that’s why racists rally around it now. Anyways, it’s coming down and all the bullshit ‘heritage’ arguments carry no weight. Look at the bright side…maybe a bowl game is coming your way.
Tell that to the former president of the NC NAACP who is a black man, a member of the SOCV, and a flag supporter. That right he is the descendant of a black man that freely chose to fight for the confederacy.
I dunno. Why does lowes ask for my phone number when i buy a pack of batteries?
I bet the people at BMW, Daimler Vans, Merdedes Benz, Google, Amazon, Volvo, Toyota, Nissan, Honda, Boeing, etc. who did all the research on why SC – and, AL, MS, TN, KY – were such great places to open a factory are catching hell back at the main office.
And, the Klan turning up will be the icing on the cake.
At least the klan isn’t burning American flags like they are in NY.
No, they prefer hanging stuff, like flags, crosses, black men, Hispanic children.
Yeah. With the Klan still being active in South Carolina, might not set well with Volvo sales. You see, secret KKK members might get jobs there. I am sure members of the KKK are building BMWs and Boeing 787s, too. Amazing how all of this is coming to light now. Imagine Boeing pilots wearing hoods as they test fly 787s. Would make for a great cartoon, ya think?
South Carolina didn’t make the list. I guess things aren’t as bad here as people think. The flag isn’t the issue everyone thinks it is. Maybe the support for the flag is really more about heritage than hate. I am sure that there are plenty of flag supporters that despise and detest the klan and racism.
You’d think with all the comparisons between Nazi’s & Southerners that BMW, Daimler & Benz would all be happy.
Poor guy. Forgot to segregate the lights and darks in the wash. Remember to wash your flag separate from your robe next time…bless your heart.
A Ku Klux Klan member was sued for divorce by his wife. He came home one night wearing a different sheet.
Would be a good day to fertilize the lawn at the State House with some organic fermented sewer water – don’t ya think? Is Sarah gonna be there? I bet them boys gots some nice neck-id photos of Sarah. And Bristol – don’t gets me started.
Like pouring Gas on a Fire.
Is that guy the Imperial Grand Tango of that Klan group?
Two Klansmen met. One said, “You know that I just became the Imperial High Executive Regal Potentate of the Klan?”
The other Klansman said, “When did you join the Klan?”
The first Klansman said, “Yesterday afternoon.”
Is that Bobby Harrell under that hood???
[Milton Berle] — The last person in a white sheet I liked was Gandhi.
A new video has been released showing that the “peaceful” protestors threw the first punch in an effort to stifle the victims freedom of speech. But Ole Leroy’s boys locked up the white victim. Par for the course for DPS. Would have probably fired the officer if the black guys that attacked the white guy had been charged.
Let see, what would the bigot-brigade say if the roles were reversed? “Well, if those trouble-making flag protesters in the trucks had stayed home where they belonged and hadn’t come to disturb a peaceful demonstration they wouldn’t have gotten beaten up!”
And that video must be mighty nuanced to reveal even intents.
It is a prime example of the fact that liberals and democrats believe that they are the only ones entitled to voice their opinion and exercise their right to freedom of speech,
Nobody has said that flag supporters can’t exercise their freedom of speech. Just don’t be surprised if someone else decides to exercise their right-hook in reaction to said speech.
It goes both ways. If flag supporters would act with respect toward the other side, it might be different.
The man had a right to exercise his freedom of speech. No one had a right to assault him for it. He was the victim of a crime. Then he had his liberty taken away and was falsely imprisoned by a couple of incompetent officers that work for an agency that is run by a liar that hides behind the race card ( Look up Leroy Smith’s false claim of racial discrimination in Florida). I hope the victim of the assault sues the hell out of the state. Just because the man expressed an opinion contrary to those of his aggressors doesn’t mean he was disrespectful. Even if he was disrespectful, words don’t justify the use of physical force.
