The Confederate White Knights, a Maryland based chapter of the Ku Klux Klan is planning a rally on Friday to call for the impeachment of Barack Obama. Of course, it’s just a COINCIDENCE that they are the KKK and President Obama is the first black President. According to these miscreants, they are only looking out for ‘Murica.
Their website says that they will be meeting in the Cecil County Administration Building in Elkton, Maryland where they will present to the public, for discussion, their petition to impeach the President. The invitation to the public on the site says, “Join us for a peaceful meeting and discussion on what we can all do to better our country.”
Imperial Wizard Richard Preston, told the local newspaper the Cecil Whig, “It’s time for the American people to stand up.”
He went on to say:
“Barack Hussein Obama is an illegal president. He needs to be removed from office. We also want ‘Obamacare’ shut down. It’s against citizen’s rights.”
“On top of that, we want the laws toughened on immigration,” he added. “We’re flooded with illegal immigrants and our people can’t find jobs.”
Although the group’s website lists the requirements for joining, among which are that one must be, “100-percent heterosexual of European heritage and neither Muslim, Jewish, Communist or Satanist,” Preston denies that his group is racist, “It’s not about race. It’s about America,” he said.
Preston said, “Just because we’re a certain way in our group, doesn’t mean we hate other groups. I think the people that do come will be surprised.”
1st Sgt. Jimmy Russell of the Maryland State Police, North East Barracks, said that the troopers expect somewhere between 40 and 200 people to attend. He also said that police are not worried about the CWK but that they are somewhat concerned about who it may be that shows up for the rally.
Preston held another rally at Antietam National Battlefield near Sharpsburg in September which the Baltimore Sun reported drew a crowd of eight.
Al Wein, director of administration for Cecil County, said that the group was given permission to use the building based on their first amendment right to free speech and to peaceably assemble.
A prepared statement from the county administration office said, “The First Amendment also prohibits local government from discriminating against an organization’s right of free speech and peaceable assembly on public property, no matter how offensive the message may be.”
A spokesman for the county sheriff’s office said that there will be no police presence at the meeting.
Preston noted that this would be the first time that the group had hosted a meeting saying, “We usually do rallies.” For example the group had organized a rally at the Gettysburg National Battlefield in October, that one that never took place due to the Republican shut down of the government. He said that he chose the Cecil County location because the people there have a “conservative mindset.”
He said, “There’s lots of good farmers and old people who understand if we don’t straighten out, we’re not going to be a country anymore.”
