GOP responds to KKK ‘Victory Parade’ in North Carolina

On Friday, the North Carolina Republican Party denounced the “Victory Parade” being held by the Ku Klux Klan celebrating Trump’s victory in the presidential election.

“We are disgusted and condemn this extremist ideology and associated actions in the strongest possible terms,” NC GOP Chairman Robin Hayes said in a statement to CNN. “These acts and thought processes are no reflection of the heartbeat of this great country and are counter to the efforts to make America great again. We stand with the Democratic Party in calling these out-of-state troublemakers to go home.”

The Trump campaign also condemned the parade, saying, “Mr. Trump and his team continue to disavow these groups and individuals and strongly condemn their message of hate.”

The Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan have announced that they will be holding the victory parade on December 3, but the group’s website has not provided a time or a location.

The group’s website bears a message reading “TRUMP = TRUMP’S RACE UNITED MY PEOPLE,” and the banner has an image of Trump standing in front of a tower with the words “President of the United States” behind him.
