KKK at Gettysburg: Those opposing white revolution will be ‘going in the ground’

Published

on

Members of the Maryland-based Traditional Rebel Knights of the Ku Klux Klan held a rally at Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania on Saturday.

From a stage in a fenced-off area of the park, speakers delivered diatribes against the conventional foes of the white nationalist organization — minorities, homosexuals, and President Barack Obama.

“The only solution is an all-white revolution,” The Patriot News reported one Klansman as having preached.

“We are taking back this land,” and shouted. “Anyone stands in our way, they’re going in the ground.”

The group’s vice president, Albert Fike, told The Evening Sun that “we’re not coming here to cause hardship or bother people visiting. Basically, we are out there to show other proud white people that we are here if they’re interested in joining.”

Most of the onlookers were not, however, interested in joining. Anne Synder told The Evening Sun that “if they can be here spewing their hate, we can be here answering them.”

The Traditional Rebel Knights applied for a permit to exercise their First Amendment right with the National Park Service, and chose the Civil War battlefield because, according to Pike, “we like to go to a white area to recruit.”

In recent months, branches of the Klan have stepped up their recruitment efforts, though they have not been limiting themselves to “white areas.” In Virginia, one group littered a black neighborhood with fliers insisting that the KKK was “not the enemy of the colored and mongrel races.”

Despite the growing movement for impeachment, advisors to President Donald Trump believe the bombshell reports about soliciting foreign election interference from Ukraine can be "spun as a positive" for the president's 2020 re-election campaign.

Ashley Parker, a White House reporter for The Washington Post, was interviewed about the thinking of Trump's advisors by MSNBC's Steve Kornacki on Monday.

"This is a White House, a Trump White House, that is used to being under siege. There was of course the two-and-a-half-year saga with the Mueller investigation culminating in the Mueller report, Mueller’s testimony recently. There have been a million other controversies, flare-ups, moments when the White House was forced to defend a comment from the president, allegation against the president, these sorts of things," Kornacki noted.
