KKK to hold ‘Victory Parade’ for Donald Trump

The Loyal White Knights of Pelham, North Carolina, “perhaps the most active Klan group in the United States,” according to the Anti-Defamation League, is planning a “Victory Klavalkade Klan Parade” on December 3 to celebrate Donald Trump being elected president, according to the group’s website.

“TRUMP=TRUMP’S RACE UNITED MY PEOPLE,” reads a banner on the website showing Trump standing in front of a tower with the words “President of the United States.”

The parade does not have a time or location listed, and calls for comment made to the group were not returned as of early Friday.

The Trump camp also did not immediately return requests for comment concerning the victory parade.

This is not the first time that Trump has found himself with the support of the KKK and other white nationalist groups, nor is it the first time that he has received criticism for failing to quickly distance himself from such groups. For example, just after the election results came in, former KKK leader David Duke took to Twitter to celebrate, writing, “This is one of the most exciting nights of my life -> make no mistake about it, our people have played a HUGE role in electing Trump!”
