If you've been watching and or listening to any or all of the right wing media lately you know that they have been doing an all out push back in response to the attempted removal of the Confederate flag. They'll say it too soon after the the church murders to discuss the topic and we should just wait for emotion to die down. Others, like Rush Limbaugh, will say if they take the Confederate flag "the American flag" will come down next". Still others, like GOP presidential candidate Lindsey Graham, uncork logic like “That flag didn't shoot them people,” why should it be punished?". Incidentally Fox & Friend's Steve Doocy mimicked the same opinion the very next day. Fox News' Charles Krauthammer even went so far as to say the whole idea was "irrelevant" and ridiculed the very idea of the flags removal.
Despite the different reasoning every one of them, to a person, agrees on the fact that it's knee-jerk liberals that are to blame for the call to removal of the Confederate flag that is so richly steeped in southern tradition.
Well the right wing media wont have to worry that they will be fighting the good fight to save the "rebel" flag all alone any more because as it turns out… The right wing conservative calvary has arrived!
Members of the Ku Klux Klan have announced plans to rally next month in South Carolina in support of the Confederate flag.
State officials confirmed to The Washington Post that the Loyal White Knights chapter of the KKK got permission to meet at the statehouse in Columbia on July 18. This is all very impressive because if you go to the groups website they proclaim that they are indeed the largest Klan in America.
Here are some tid bits about this klan group if say Fox News wanted to book them for "Hannity" of if Rush Limbaugh wanted them as a guest for his show...
James Spears, the "Grand Titan" of the Pelham, North Carolina, klan group has gone on the record saying that the Confederate flag being removed from outside the statehouse
"for all the wrong reasons… It's part of white people's culture,"
In addition Spears went on to speak about the terrorist racist murderer Dylann Roff saying that he feels...
"sorry for the boy… I think he picked the wrong target. A better target for him would have been these gang-bangers, running around rapping, raping and stealing."
Robert Jones, a "grand dragon" for the chapter, referred to Roof as a...
The group's outgoing voice mail message says the government is...
"trying to erase white culture and heritage from the history books." and "If you're white and proud, join the crowd… Save our land, join the Klan."
I look forward to seeking the conservative media embracing this group as bothers in arms against the the evil liberals who are trying to take away the Confederate flag from the poor misunderstood racists, the KKK and neo-nazis that love it and its symbolism so dearly.
