So an out-of-state chapter of the Klan requested permission to hold a pro-Confederate flag rally at the South Carolina State House grounds, and was granted it, even though Gov. Haley says they’re not welcome there.
A chapter of the Ku Klux Klan plans to hold a rally next month on the grounds of South Carolina’s state capitol to protest efforts to remove the Confederate flag that flies there.
The Loyal White Knights, a chapter of the KKK based in Pelham, N.C., applied for a permit to hold a rally about the flag on the State House grounds in Columbia on July 18. It was approved.
Local newspaper the Post and Courier reported that Brian Gaines, spokesman for the South Carolina Budget and Control Board, said the state provides rally space at the capitol building when it is available.
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley isn’t pleased about the KKK rally. “This is our state, and they are not welcome,” she said in a statement issued by her press office to the newspaper.
At the phone number for the Loyal White Knights, a recording can be heard that says members will be in Columbia “standing up for our Confederate history” on July 18.

The KKK are either complete idiots, or are on the progs’ payroll – or both.
And the Confederate flag isn’t even the KKK’s favourite flag; the U.S. flag is:
