One Klan Group to Protest Another in Cullman AL

Um, what? Geez, just how many Klan members are there in Cullman?

Members of one Ku Klux Klan organization say they will assemble at the courthouse Nov. 10 to show their opposition to another Klan group that plans an anti-immigration rally there that day.

Ken Mier, who described himself as an investigator for the Alabama Ku Klux Klan and the national office of the Ku Klux Klan LLC, said in an e-mail to The Cullman Times that his group is against the tactics of the National Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, which held an anti-immigration protest last month in Athens.

"We are 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.

Okay, I'm speculating here -- there's not much information in the linked news flash -- but somehow I doubt the Alabama Klan loves them some immigrants. Sounds like the local folks are just a mite pissed that the damnyankees came down here and stole their thunder.
