If You're Going To Hate, At Least Be A Good Christian About It

Frequent readers of this blog probably didn't do well on career aptitude tests...er...we mean, frequent readers will notice that from time to time we like to indulge in a delightful and refreshing adult beverage. Admittedly in a most un-adult like way, but that's a story for another time. Anyway, everyone needs a hobby. We tell you this because we don't want you thinking that today's post is a figment of a Stoli induced alternative reality. Well that's not completely accurate. It's about Alabama, which is possibly its own alternative reality.

Members of one Ku Klux Klan organization say they will assemble at the courthouse November 10 to show their opposition to another Klan group that plans an anti-immigration rally there that day. "They've really gone off the reservation," said Ken Mier, who described himself as an investigator for the Alabama Ku Klux Klan and the national office of the Ku Klux Klan LLC. "We're not against illegals because they're illegal, we're against them because they're brown."

"We are also opposed to the ignorance and stupidity as displayed by the individuals that thumbed their nose at the area churches by continuing to use racial slurs, threats and avoided Christian deportment," he said. "They need to realize that when you're out in public hating on somebody there are certain Christian principles that need to be followed."

At the protest, held several hours after thousands of motorcyclists traveled through the city on the annual Trail of Tears ride, several National Knights Klan members gave anti-immigration speeches.

Mier said his group was disgusted that the National Knights would interfere with the Trail of Tears ride. "Look, here we are turning one of the most disturbing episodes of our treatment of American Indians into a motorcycle swap meet and these guys have to come along and cheapen it by taking some shots at the Mexicans. Let's keep focus here people, that's all I'm saying."

Fer schizzle. Although in defense of the National Knights, all non-white people look alike to them.
