Stop the Ku Klux Klan From Spreading Hate at Statehouse

KKK-by-arete13

Target: Congressman James Clyburn of South Carolina

Goal: Stop the racist hate group the Ku Klux Klan from rallying at the South Carolina statehouse.

The Ku Klux Klan has filed to hold a rally at the South Carolina statehouse to protest banning the Confederate flag from the state’s capitol grounds. The possible banning of the flag comes after Dylann Roof committed a horrific hate crime in the murder of nine black members of a church in South Carolina. It was reported that it was white supremacist groups that fueled Roof’s hate and pushed him to commit these murders, photos were discovered online of Roof branding the Confederate flag.

The Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, which dubs itself the “largest Klan in America,” filed to hold the protest and is planning to have anywhere from 100 to 200 people attend. Robert Jones, the leader of the group, said, “[Roof] was heading in the right direction,” when he committed his racist murders.

While some may want to argue against banning the protest because of free speech rights, it’s for the safety and morality of this nation that this infamous hate group be banned from protesting. Although they may not present an imminent danger with their speech, what they represent and what their outfits symbolize are hate crimes within themselves. With the timeliness of Dylann Roof’s crimes, tensions are too high to allow this group to spark more terror in the wake of one of the worst acts of civil terrorism in recent years.

Urge officials to stop the rally by enacting legislation that would supersede the KKK’s rights to spread hateful terrorism.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Congressman Clyburn,

The Ku Klux Klan has filed to hold a rally at the statehouse in your home state of South Carolina to protest banning the Confederate flag from the capitol grounds. The banning of the flag comes after Dylann Roof committed a horrific hate crime in the murder of nine black members of a church in South Carolina which was reportedly fueled by groups like the KKK.

The head of the group planning the rally made comments of support towards Roof saying he was heading in the right direction. This, along with what this group represents and symbolizes are hate crimes within themselves which I’m sure will make many Americans feel unsafe. With the timeliness of Dylann Roof’s crimes, tensions are too high to allow this group to spark more terror in the wake of one of the worst acts of civil terrorism in recent years.

I urge officials to stop the rally by enacting legislation that would supersede the KKK’s rights to spread hateful terrorism.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    As much as I dislike everything this hate group spews forth, they are protected by the right to free speech as is our right to respond to such garbage.

    • freedom of speech should not get in the way of abolishing racism and hate-fueled politics. that’s why it’s there in the first place.

      a person is allowed to say anything, but for that word to become imposed upon everyone else’s life it becomes a dictatorship

    • Yes They Do..Just Like any Other Group Does..

    • Robert Ortiz says:

      Free speech is protected, hate speech should not be.

  2. Why Wasnt There A Petition for The Black Pathers….Hmm?? Cant Allow One Group To Rally and not Another…

    • Robert Ortiz says:

      Because they Panthers didn’t promote hateful acts against people or victimize them just because of their race.

  3. WE NEED TO STOP THE KKK!!!
