It’s been less than a week since Donald Trump was declared President-elect and white supremacy enthusiasts are already on the move.
In addition to former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke tweeting his excitement for Trump’s victory not long after the presidential election results were announced, there have also been multiple reports across the country involving racist white Americans verbally and physically attacking people of color since Tuesday. Keeping with the theme of hatred in honor of America’s new president, the KKK has now announced plans to hold a victory rally to celebrate Trump’s win.
According to The LA Times, The Loyal White Knights of Pelham, North Carolina will hold a parade in the city on December 3 as a celebratory event in light of Trump’s victory. The group, which is one of the largest KKK chapters in the country, states on their website they believe Trump’s campaign “united my people.”
