  • UPDATING: Protestors Stabbed With Flag Pole At California KKK Rally

    Klansman Claims 'Self Defense'

    Caution: Vivid images below.

    Two people protesting a KKK rally were stabbed with a flag pole, reportedly by a member of the Klan. A third person, possibly a KKK member, was also stabbed at the rally in Anaheim, California, where about 50 protestors showed up Saturday morning hours before it was scheduled to begin. One of the victims is reportedly in serious or critical condition.

    Police arrested the alleged stabbing suspect, who is claiming self defense.

    "A Klansman in handcuffs could be heard telling a police officer that he 'stabbed him in self-defense.' Several other people were also handcuffed," the LA Times' James Queally, who also tweeted from the scene, reports. "Witnesses said the Klansmen used the point of a flagpole as a weapon while fighting with counter-protesters."

    The Times notes that "some of the counter-protesters could be seen kicking a man whose shirt read 'Grand Dragon.' At some point, a counter-protester collapsed on the ground bleeding, crying that he had been stabbed."

    Witnesses said the Klansmen used the point of a flagpole as a weapon while fighting with counter-protesters.

    The AP notes three people have been "detained." 

    UPDATE I: 5:14 PM EST –

    UPDATE II: 5:19 PM EST –
    The LA Times' James Queally is qualifying his earlier report, now states the flag on the flagpole was may or may not have been a Confederate flag. We're amending the title and content above to reflect only that it was a flag pole.

    UPDATE III: 5:31 PM EST –

      My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do..

      The first picture of a stabbing victim looks to be the critical one. That is a lot of blood on the ground and from where the officer was applying pressure, his lungs could be involved. I do hope he makes it and sues the KKK for everything he can get.
      The protester could not have been close to the stabber during the ‘assault’. The stabber would be 3 or 4 feet away to stab someone with the end of a flag pole. I do not believe for a second the KKK members were in any real danger and hope their over reaction by stabbing people sends them to prison for attempted murder. It will be for murder if the above mentioned protester does not survive.
      Free Speech should have limits and the KKK should not have been permitted to march. They are a hate group using hate speech. I am all for Hate Speech Laws and not allowing scum like the KKK ANY voice. The only way we are going to stop discrimination is to put a stop to hate speech and hate groups.

      The Klansmen must be executed for first degree murder.
