This story literally might make you sick.
While millions of people around the world are protesting against Donald Trump’s election victory, which the President-elect, by the way, is calling “unfair,” there is a group of people celebrating the 70-year-old’s Oval triumph.
A chapter of the Ku Klux Klan will hold a celebration parade in North Carolina in honor of Trump’s major win. The Pelham, NC-based Loyal White Knights of the KKK confirmed via their website on Friday that the rally will be held on December 3.
The group didn’t give a location or time, but they have already titled the event, “Victory Klavalkade Klan Parade.”
The website reads, “TRUMP = TRUMP’S RACE UNITED MY PEOPLE. President of the United States.” The extremist group included an image of Trump with the an emblem around him that reads: President of the United States.
On Friday morning, a spokesperson for Trump responded to the upcoming parade, suggesting, “Mr. Trump and his team continue to disavow these groups and individuals and strongly condemn their message of hate.”
Under the parade announcement, the website details exactly what the KKK stands for, which they state is to “help restore America to a White Christian nation, founded on God’s word. This does not mean that we want to see anything bad happen to the darker races … we simply want to live separate from them.”
As you continue to scroll down the website, you then see a disturbing message about the Black Lives Matter movement.
In November 2016, The Crusader, a publication of the Klan, announced their support of Trump. “‘Make America Great Again!’ It is a slogan that has been repeatedly used by Donald Trump in his campaign for the presidency,” Pastor Thomas Robb wrote in the paper. “You can see it on the shirts, buttons, posters and ball caps such as the one being worn here by Trump speaking at a recent rally. … But can it happen? Can America really be great again? This is what we will soon find out!”
The message, however, was bashed by the Trump campaign, which stated, “Mr. Trump and the campaign denounces hate in any form,” the campaign said in a statement Tuesday evening. “This publication is repulsive and their views do not represent the tens of millions of Americans who are uniting behind our campaign.”
