White cloaks and pointy hats weren’t the only costumes represented at a recent Ku Klux Klan rally to the dismay of many not-so-amused Klansman.
A KKK rally promoting anti-immigration was disrupted by a clown lead counter- protest this past weekend in Charlotte, N.C.
According to reports, the KKK members were out-clowned five to one as the enthusiastic clowns stood shoulder to shoulder against the hate group.
The Latin American Coalition organized the protest with hopes of undermining the anti-Latino and anti-immigration message.
The coalition wanted to send the message of “you look silly” said a Latino coalition member, “we’re dressed like clowns and you’re the ones that look funny.”
Many group members wore face paint and red clown noses; they extended the mockery even more by tossing “white flour” in the air and holding signs that read “wife power” to counteract the “white power” sentiment.
No clowns were hurt during this demonstration, well unless you are considering the feelings of the KKK ralliers
