Charleston, VA (PPN) – Police pepper sprayed and released three tear gas canisters during a violent Klu Klux Klan rally as the crowd erupted in anger towards the members of the most racist gang in America.
It has been over 150 years since the Juneteenth freedom day and the Klu Klux Klan continues to walk freely in America with white sheets covering their heads and holding confederate flags in their hands. That says a lot about this country.
On Saturday, the KKK rallied in support of the Confederate general Robert E. Lee statue. Over 50 Klan members were in attendance as they yelled “white power”at Justice Park, according to the New York Times.
These Klan gangsters marched through a rowdy crowd. Reports say that 23 people were arrested and three hospitalized.
In California, gang members are being jailed. In Virginia, the police escorted the white supremacist gang to their cars when counter protesters approached them.
“People should be able to respect our heritage,” said Amanda Barker, a member of the Ku Klux Klan but what Barker may have forgotten is that in order to get respect you have to give it first. The crowd fought back, throwing water and screaming things such as “Black Lives Matter” so loudly that the white power chants were drowned.
The next rally held by white nationalists is scheduled for August 12.
A member of the Klan actually stated that people should respect a heritage that killed, beat and terrifyingly abused innocent black people. In the 1960s, the Klan would sit on the back of their trucks wearing white hoodies holding shotguns, ready to murder black people.
Now it seems as if they took the hoodies off and put a badge on. Police are contributing to the murder rate of African-Americans in today’s time just as the KKK did over 50 years ago.
“We did not want the KKK to enter the park so we linked arms and police did what they felt was necessary,” Nic McCarthy, according to reports.
