All Hell Breaks Loose As KKK Members Stab Two Men With A Flag At White Pride Rally

The resurgence of white supremacy in America showed its ugly face in a shocking outbreak of violence. A Ku Klux Klan rally in Anaheim, California, turned bloody as the Klansmen wearing Confederate patches attacked counter-protesters. One Klansmen and two protesters have been stabbed, one in critical condition after being reportedly pierced with the point of a flag in “self defense”. The Grand Dragon and one other Klansmen have been arrested.

Anaheim police expected about 20 members of the notorious terrorist group to rally at Pearson Park. The theme of the event was to be “white lives matter too,” which really should be interpreted as “only white Christian male lives matter.” The KKK have a long history in Southern California, once controlling four of five city council seats in 1924 and once had as many as 300 members patrolling the streets in their trademark hoods and robes.

Emboldened by the naked ethno-nationalism of the Donald Trump campaign, white supremacy groups have seized on the introduction of bigotry into mainstream politics and have grown alarmingly bold with their public appearances. David Duke, a former KKK “grand wizard,” recently announced that not voting for Trump was treason to white heritage; online, white supremacy and neo-Nazi groups have reveled in Trump’s hateful rhetoric. William Daniel Johnson of the American Freedom Party wrote that “[Trump] has made it ok to talk about these incredible concerns of European Americans today, because I think European Americans know they are the only group that can’t defend their own essential interests and their point of view. He espouses is the closest thing to white nationalism that we have seen since the jingoistic era of Theodore Roosevelt.”

It is absolutely shocking to see this kind of violence and shows just what kind of a threat that a Trump presidency represents to unity and cohesion of American society. 20% of Trump’s supporters believe that the slaves shouldn’t have been freed following the end of the Civil War and believe that whites are a “superior race”. The undercurrent of racism that the Republican Party has cultivated for decades finally has the confidence to show its face in public; this kind of violence is a disgusting affront to the values of tolerance and diversity that made our nation great, and we must show the world that this is not what our nation represents when we go to the polls this November.
