The KKK versus the SCV in Memphis

It looks as if the Ku Klux Klan wants to protest the renaming of several parks in Memphis, especially one named after Nathan Bedford Forrest. The Sons of Confederate Veterans don’t want that to happen. Nevertheless, the KKK has applied for a permit to hold a protest March 30 (and some premature reports had declared that the permits had been granted by the mayor’s office). The mayor has not offered any opposition to a peaceful rally.

    How must people feel to have a terrorist group marching in their city? Yikes!

      This group of KKK aren’t terrorists though.

        Why take the name of a terrorist group if you are not a terrorist?

          The KKK today is a terrorist group? Why aren’t they all in jail? Is President Obama going to drone them?

          I think you’re confusing hate groups with terrorists. That the KKK was once a terrorist group, doesn’t make it one today. Let us rejoice this fact.

          Now, if they suicide bomb Memphis or shoot someone there, I’ll be right there with you calling them terrorists. As far as I can tell though, that’s not what these gentlemen are about.

            My question stands.

      Most of ’em are probably federal informants…Of course, our federal government is becoming more terroristic than the KKK (see: NDAA, “enhanced interrogation” techniques, killer drones, unaccountable president, etc)

        The same is often said about southern heritage bloggers. I think you’ve blown your cover.

    No worry the Communist party will show to counter-protest. And unlike the Klan, the Communists are respectable and completely harmless. BTW, I wonder how many Captain Obvious commentators will show up to tell that they really, really, really, hate the KKK?

    Isn’t the new KKK now? Re-branded? What kills me is their application has you affirm that you are a Christian. Not sure how many Christian churches are OK with being in the KKK now days.

    Just goes to show you how twisted a version of Christianity they have.

    All bark and no bite. The real white terrorists meet in the back country, wear fatigues and carry assault rifles. The clowns that dress up and march, pose no threat, other than to the peace and quiet of Memphis.

    As I understand it, there’s no one group known as the Ku Klux Klan anymore, but rather a number of unrelated groups all claiming to be rightful heirs to the name. It’s not like anyone ever trademarked the name.
