“Trump’s race united my people,” proclaims the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan’s website in the wake of Mein Trumpf’s terrifying victory…Because #OrangeLivesMatter.
And while recent rumors of a Ku Klux Klan rally in Alamance County, N.C. turned out to be false, they’ve definitely got a “victory klavalkade Klan parade” planned for Dec. 3 somewhere in North Carolina. McClatchy reports they were unable to find any more information about the event.
‘Details on the rally celebrating Trump’s victory are scarce. It’s being held by The Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, which is based in Pelham – a small, unincorporated community about 45 minutes north of Burlington, near the Virginia border.’
The lack of details with the place and time is easy to understand. After all, things can go horribly wrong when you try to pull together and promote a Ku Klux Klan rally.
And then, the Ku Klux Klan marched on South Carolina’s capital in 2015 after they took the Confederate battle flag down…Only to get trolled by a man named Matt Buck and his giant, farty-sounding sousaphone. To add insult to injury, he followed them while playing a lumbering refrain best known from the the Family Guy episode with Stewie “following fat people” with a tuba.

Alas, that was back in the heady days of President Barack Obama’s second term, when gay marriage had just become legal across the U .S. and people of color had little to fear from what we all thought was a dormant and powerless Ku Klux Klan. Now that their avatar has won the White House, the haters have come skittering free from the confines of their dank cellars, blinking giddily into the light of day.
McClatchy notes that the people who organized the above march are the same ones who are planning this one. They also remind us that the Loyal Knights of the Ku Klux Klan formally endorsed Donald Trump back in May.
‘Trump, a Republican, was officially endorsed by the KKK during his campaign against Hillary Clinton, a Democrat. Trump won North Carolina on his way to winning the presidency, defeating Clinton here by nearly 5 percentage points.’
