The Ku Klux Klan, a chapter out of North Carolina, has planned to rally at the South Carolina State House tomorrow. The group planned it to make a statement about their belief that the Confederate flag should continue flying on State House grounds.
Of course, the flag is already gone.
Gov. Nikki Haley made this statement about the event:
Statement regarding the out of state KKK rally at the statehouse on Saturday: The strength and grace the people of South Carolina have shown over the last three weeks have inspired our family, our neighbors and the entire world. Our family hopes the people of South Carolina will join us in staying away from the disruptive, hateful spectacle members of the Ku Klux Klan hope to create over the weekend and instead focus on what brings us together. We want to make the Statehouse a lonely place for them. In doing so, we’ll honor those we have lost and continue to make our state stronger.
Never miss a local story.
She’s right. Let’s not get sucked in by a few guys in Halloween costumes.
The same goes for similar groups who also plan to rally.
