Virginia has been in the national news as of late, due to the actions of the newly elected officials who have been making some pretty idiotic decisions and declarations.
Besides Virginia attorney general Ken Cuccinelli’s attack on gays in the state’s academia, the governor of Virginia, Robert McDonnell, declared the month of April “Confederate History Month”.
Aside from insulting and alienating Virginians who do not share the Confederacy’s fight to keep slavery, McDonnell smacked the African American community in the face by keeping the element of slavery out of his tribute all together.
For those who deem these kind of moronic actions from elected officials as “harmless”, let’s take another look at what has now been inspired by the Virginia’s GOP “Southern Strategy”.
According to the ADL’s Schedule of Upcoming Events:
Saturday, May 08, 2010 Collinsville, Virginia: Klan Rally -Klan rally and cross burning organized by Knight Rider Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and the Rebel Brigade Knights of the Ku Klux Klan
Saturday, May 08, 2010 Martinsville, Virginia: Klan Rally-Klan gathering organized by Knight Riders Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
Saturday, May 22, 2010 Max Meadows, Virginia: Klan Rally-Gathering organized by Virgil White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan
Saturday, June 19, 2010 Dungannon, Virginia: Klan Rally-Gathering organized by Virgil White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan
This is FOUR KKK rallies all happening within just a few weeks, and all just a few weeks after the newly celebrated “Southern White History Month”.
This can be just a coincidence? We think NOT!
