KKK To Rally in South GA [Nahunta] Feb. 20th At Noon ! (Exercising constitutional right to assemble]
Lady Liberty's Lamp ^ | Feb. 15, 2010 | TERRY DICKSON AND TERESA STEPZINSKI

The Knight Riders, Knights of the Ku Klux Klan will hold a rally from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, in Nahunta.

From Jacksonville.com:

Ku Klux Klan moving rally back to Nahunta Constitutionally, the group has a right to assemble. The event will be on U.S. 301.

They weren’t invited, haven’t been welcomed publicly and have no permit to use any parks, but Ku Klux Klan members plan to march in Nahunta nonetheless.

The Knight Riders, Knights of the Ku Klux Klan is back to its original plans and will hold a rally from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, in Nahunta.

The city is still refusing, however, to let the group rally in the City Hall parking lot.

After city officials last week rejected a request to use the parking lot, the Knight Riders obtained a permit from Brantley County officials to meet at a ball field in Schlatterville, a community 15 miles west of Nahunta. Now it’s back to Nahunta, but the meeting is scheduled for a public street, city officials said Thursday.

Nahunta plans to close U.S. 301, the city’s main north-south thoroughfare, between U.S. 82 and a point about three bloc north, City Clerk Angie Wirth said. “They have a constitutional right to assemble. We can’t tell them not to,” Wirth said.

The city is sticking with its decision of last Friday denying the KKK use of the City Hall parking lot because it had never been a public forum, City Attorney Kelly Brooks said.

“They are not being given permission to come. They’re just coming. We cannot stop them. They can walk as long as they don’t obstruct the free flow of traffic,” Brooks said.

The Knight Riders met Wednesday with Nahunta Police Chief Robert Johns and other city officials and said they were coming anyway in keeping with their constitutional right to free speech and peaceful assembly, Brooks said.

Several residents told the Times-Union last week they fear the rally will lead to violence, specifically confrontations between Klan members and their opponents. As along as they obey the law and city ordinances, there is nothing the city can do to stop them. Nonetheless, Mayor Ronnie Jacobs and City Council members are like some residen in being concerned about the potential for violence, Brooks said.

When Grand Dragon Gregg Wolf told County Manager Parrish Barwick late Wednesday the group had decided to go back to its original plans to rally in Nahunta, the county revoked permit it issued for use of the Schlatterville ball park, County Commission Chairman Ronald Ham said. The decision came about the time county Sheriff Robert Thomas was meeting with Georgia State Patrol and Georgia Bureau of Investigation authorities to discuss security for the Schlatterville rally.

Ham hopes the Klan keeps its promise to obey the law, and that city, county and state law enforcement officers work together to ensure everyone’s safety. “I just pray the good Lord gives everybody temperance,” Ham said. The Knight Riders have said the rally concerns public awareness about sex offenders, illegal immigrants, prayer in school, organizers said.

Racist idiots like the "Black Liberationists" of the commie left.

"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".
--James (Jim) Cone,
African American Religious Thought: An Anthology (Paperback)
by Cornel West (Editor), Eddie S. Glaude Jr. (Editor)

SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"

WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.

HANNITY: But I'm a — reverend

WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?

We had the KKK plan a rally in my community. We didn’t want to see the city pay out a ton of legal fees for a case they would surely lose. We let these twits have their little rally and.....ignored them.

I find it interesting that the small town where this rally is slated, Nahunta, GA is not willing to hav ethe KKK rally take place in the courthouse parking lot, but the Mayor/Town Council (?) is/are willing to shut down a STATE highway to accommodate the an assembly point for the Clan.

I doubt the town has the right to shut down a STATE hwy for such an event.

The KKK holds a rally from the courthouse steps in a square in downtown Louisville, KY (near where I live) about every 4 years. I am glad to say they do not gain any strength from making themselves visible in that way from anyone around here.

The rally always makes the community somewhat tense until they go on their way.

My mother told me that Indiana is a stronghold for the KKK, and I have read that also. Does anyone know if that is true?

Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd, Ex-Klansman
by Michelle Malkin (March 8, 2001)

Ex-Klansman Robert Byrd, the senior senator from West Virginia, casually used the phrase "white nigger" twice on national TV this weekend. Enraged civil rights groups organized a protest campaign against Sen. Byrd and demanded that he undergo sensitivity training ... not.

The ex-Klansman, you see, is a Democrat. Democrats can join hate groups and utter the ugliest racial slurs and get away with it because they are Democrats. They belong to the party of racial tolerance and understanding. They're paragons of virtue, and the rest of us are bigoted rubes.

The ex-Klansman showed his true colors when asked by Fox News Sunday morning talk show host Tony Snow about the state of race relations in America. Sen. Byrd warned: "There are white niggers. I've seen a lot of white niggers in my time. I'm going to use that word. We just need to work together to make our country a better country, and I'd just as soon quit talking about it so much."

__________________________________________________________

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

In 1942, 24-year-old Byrd joined the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), whose parades in Matoaka, West Virginia, he had witnessed in his childhood. He was unanimously elected Exalted Cyclops, or leader, of his local chapter.[4]

Byrd, in his autobiography, attributed the beginnings of his political career to this incident, although he lamented that they involved the Klan. According to Byrd, a KKK official told him "You have a talent for leadership, Bob... The country needs young men like you in the leadership of the nation." Byrd recalls that "suddenly lights flashed in my mind! Someone important had recognized my abilities! I was only 23 or 24 years old, and the thought of a political career had never really hit me. But strike me that night, it did."[4] He participated in the KKK during World War II, holding the titles Kleagle (recruiter) and Exalted Cyclops. He did not serve in the military during the war, working instead as a welder in a Baltimore, Maryland shipyard, where he helped build warships.[citation needed]

Byrd commented on the 1945 controversy about racially integrating the military. Byrd, when he was 28 years old, wrote to segregationist Senator Theodore Bilbo, of Mississippi, vowing never to serve in such a military:

"Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.[5]"

He had earlier written "I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side".[6][7]

I recall (1978 I think it was) the KKK tried a demonstration and rally in our town. There were 4 or 5 of them that showed up on the "square", wearing the usual white robes and carrying Confederate battle flags. We didn't ignore them. White and black citizens pointed and laughed at them. They never came back.

Ridiculing them was very effective.

I don't know if it was the same Klan group that shot it out with the Communists and Black Panthers in Greensboro a few years later, but they do seem to be dying out.

Three quarters of which are probably undercover FBI agents.

No, I in NO way support ANYTHING that the KKK stands for or believes in.

I would, however, be willing to die for their right to freely assemble and communicate their views.

First Ammendment to the Constitution: Right to assemble

The other quarter are probably secretly being funded by Morris Dees. He’s gotta have fodder for his fundraising letters.

Thanks. I didn't think so. I just wanted to give you an opportunity to clarify. Because, based on the way you constructed the post, some might have been left confused.

In ST Paul Minnesota a few years ago, these morons came around and there was an anti KKK crowd that was at least 10 times as big.

A handful will show up in costume—with a whole bunch of Anti-KKK people yelling. They have no power or hold. They are seeking PR only. Don’t give it to them—laughter is the best way to handle clowns like this.

So it looks as though the Left’s favorite straw man, the KKK, may still be alive.
