Residents in Reidsville, North Carolina have begun receiving fliers inviting them to a May 26 Ku Klux Klan cross burning intended for “white people only.”
Reidsville Police Department Captain Ken Hanks confirmed to Raw Story that people in several neighborhoods had reported receiving the invitations.
Asked if the fliers had broken any law, Hanks replied, “Not that I’m aware of,” and added that the matter was not being investigated.
The town hosting the event is Harmony, NC.
Harmony is a town in Iredell County, North Carolina, United States. The population was 533 at the 2010 census. The town is located in northeastern Iredell County and lies in the eastern portion of the North Carolina High Country.
Of course it’s in a tiny town. It’s these little places where time has basically stood still for some of the residents. Here’s what attendees can expect:
“Join us, the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, for a rally and cross lighting, Saturday, May 26, Harmony, North Carolina. Free Admition [sic]-White People Only. No alcohol, drugs, fighting, glass bottles or weapons. Free on site camping-all major motels in area. Souvenirs. Vendors. Food and beverages for Sale. Cross lighting at dusk-a white unity event. Live country band. Security provided by LWK.”
I wonder what’s on the menu before “lighting up?” Some meth? I love this bit of flourish on the recording on the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan “24 Hour Hot Line”:
“Always remember: If it ain’t white, it ain’t right.”
Do these cretins think they can drive me out of my home state? TOO DAMN BAD.
