A riot broke out in Charlottesville, VA July 1st because of the city council’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee from Lee Park. They also plan to rename the park, “Emancipation Park”. A court order has ended the statue’s evacuation until a November hearing.
The protest was supposed to start at 3pm, at Lee park. 50 KKK members show up only to be greeted by a mass of 1,000 counter-protesters, ready to throw down for what they believe–that their city is modern and diverse with no room for the KKK’s nonsense.
The KKK was actually late to their own protest because of the angry crowds in the way. By the time 5PM rolls around, policemen were shooting tear gas canisters into the crowd to calm people down and get them to evacuate the premises. By the day’s end, 23 people were arrested and a few went to the hospital.
Klan members held signs filled with ignorance and hate towards blacks and Jewish people. When interviewed, members stated that they were protesting to protect white history and argued that white people alone are told they have no right to have racial pride.
Personally, I am white but I have no desire to shove it in anyone’s face. There isn’t a supreme race. Humans are human. We are all made of the same ingredients so therefore, everyone deserves equal treatment.
I can’t believe that the KKK still exists today, don’t they realize that slavery is over? Or what century it is now? They haven’t made an impact with their white pride protests. Mostly they just make asses of themselves. They are a perfect example of “herd mentality”– the thoughts and behaviors that people adopt from their peers because they are afraid of being rejected by the group.
A message to the KKK
Now it’s time for Fun with Flags (Sheldon Cooper would be so proud), that “confederate flag” you KKK members are waving around is not even the correct flag.
During the Civil War, the South used 3 different Confederate national flags. What the KKK uses is a irrelevant battleground flag. So, they are waving a flag that symbolizes their ignorance.
The real Confederate national flag looks like this :
The KKK started out as a Protestant (now generally Christian) group that uses a cross with a drop of blood in the center, to symbolize that they believe Jesus shed his blood only for the white people. KKK members think Caucasians are the “chosen race”. What Bible were they reading??
The KKK started out as a Protestant (now generally Christian) group that uses a cross with Jesus’ blood drop in the center, which symbolizes that they believe, that Jesus shed his blood only for the white people or the “chosen race”. What Bible were they reading??
I grew up in a strict, Christian home. I was forced to go to church and the Bible was beaten into my brain constantly.
According to the Bible “God’s chosen race was… hold onto your cone shaped hats… JEWS!
Israelis were Jewish 2,000 years before Jesus. In fact, Jesus was a Jew!
No cotton sheets will save you from this one…. JESUS WAS NOT WHITE.
Yes it’s true, the Jesus figure you little clansmen worship was actually a poor, dirty, homeless, Jewish, Israeli guy. Over time imagery of “Jesus” morphed into an attractive, white, tall, blond haired, blue eyed man– with glorious, shimmering abs. I guess the church thought that the “pretty Jesus” would draw more people’s attention.
So, what if Jesus wanted to be in your Aryan group?
He wouldn’t have had the option because he wasn’t white AND he was a Jew. The 2 main things you hate.
The KKK members in Charlottesville should have done some homework before showing up to Robert E. Lee park. If they are so proud to be American then they should read the US. constitution.
13th Amendment [Ended slavery in 1865… FYI it is currently 2017]
Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction

If you are a member of the KKK or a racist then the rest of this message is for you.
Don’t be so fearful of people that you don’t understand. Take off your “ghost costume”, you aren’t fooling anyone. Put out your torches… it is the year 2017… you probably have a “flashlight” app on your phone. Slavery has been done with since 1865… give it up, you are not bringing that shit back.
