Skip to comments.Arkansas Dem who once attended KKK rally accuses Republican of racism

Arkansas state Rep. Butch Wilkins, a Democrat, blasted one of his Republican colleagues in the Arkansas state House for using racist language.
How did Wilkins know that former Rep. John Hubbards language was racist? Because Wilkins heard similar words and phrases at a Klu Klux Klan rally he once attended.
Wilkins took to Facebook recently to criticize a guest column written by Jon Hubbard in the Jonesboro Sun.
How many of you have ever attended a Klan rally, asked Wilkins in a Facebook post. I did once out of pure curiosity in the early 1960s. The babbling of the speaker is now available in the form of the guest columnist of the JBoro sun. Not the same man but very much the same words.
Wilkins said he was just a teenager when he and a friend attended a KKK rally.
I didnt have no interest in it, he said. I just happened to go with another guy.
Nic Horton, editor of The Arkansas Project, wrote that Wilkins attendance at the event was forgivable, being that it was the act of a much younger man more 50 years ago.

Double negative means positive. And he was going with another guy?
No wonder he's a democRat.
The caverns nearby were stunning and pristine, the people were warm and friendly - it was almost off putting coming from NY - but I enjoyed it immensely EXCEPT the wine - it was actually worse than my concoctions
sorry this turd stains their reputation
Butch’s days are numbered. He’s in his final term in a district that will likely go Republican next year.
