40 Ku Klux Klan members rallied in Ellijay, Ga, on September 11th, to condemn homosexuality, illegal immigration, , sex offenders, blacks and President Barack Obama. The Klansmen stood in the Gilmer County Courthouse parking lot as several hundred spectators watched from across the street. Klan members who said there were active Klan cells in Tennesee, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi all spoke, but none gave full names, (fucking cowards)
Speakers spent most of the hour long rally assailing Hispanic immigrants.“Most of you probably don’t realize how bad this illegal alien situation actually is,” said a man who identified himself at Imperial Wizard Jeff Jones. “Us real Americans don’t want these … people in our country.”He blamed lack of jobs and increases in tuberculosis, HIV and car accidents on illegal immigration. “They are nothing but a bunch of leaches, parasites, like ticks on a dog, sucking our country dry. Most of the supporters, who cheered and shouted “white power” with the Klansmen, appeared to have traveled with the group. They left after the event
Countering the Klan, people carried signs proclaiming love for all people, regardless of ethnicity. Members of the Mountain Light Unitarian Universalist Church came to “provide an alternative message,” said Myra Kibler, president of the congregation. “We were incensed they would do this on Sept. 11,” Kibler said. “We just didn’t want their message to go unanswered. And we are thankful there are many other people here who want to make a different statement [than the Klan]. We want to provide an alternative message. … We say that we are standing on the side of love.”
First the Tea Party, and now the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan?
It’s official. America is doomed and we’d all be best served by getting out of here as soon as possible.
