Ku Klux Klan fliers were left at Selma homes on the 50th anniversary of "Bloody Sunday."
Robert Jones, the grand dragon of the Loyal White Knights of the KKK spoke with AL.com Sunday afternoon and said about 4,000 KKK fliers have been distributed throughout Selma and Montgomery in the last two weeks.
"We pretty much put out fliers, some against King and some against immigration," Jones said. "It's time for the American people to wake up to these falsehoods that they preach about MLK."
Jones said bags containing a flier and a rock were thrown onto the doorsteps of people's homes as KKK members drove by. He said the rock acted as a paperweight, and the homes that received fliers were random.

I thought the esteemed DEMOCRAT Senator Robert Byrd had passed....
I don’t give a damn. It was never called that in the main stream press or anywhere else what ever this article says. It was always called the march in/on Selma.
We need a Republican prosecutor to go after the perps.
Blacks may have done this for attention.

Th Ku Klux Klan has always been the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party.
I would have to disagree. I’ve lived in Alabama most of my life and it’s always been referred to here as “Bloody Sunday” here. I was 10 years old at the time of the march and I remember the “old” south very well. The KKK came to my town one time that I can remember and had a big cross burning at the local airport. My dad loaded us all in the car with mom’s protest and drove us by to see it. I was truly frightened by what I saw and will always remember it. Much has changed in my state since those days. I’d put our race relations up against any state these days (not what you hear in the news about Alabama but the true state of affairs)...but that’s just my opinion of course.
Those fliers were passed out by.democrats or blacks
I will bow to your knowledge, Bamabelle! I just never heard it applied to this event.
I say "reportedly" because so much of the Czarist history of that period has been tainted by Soviet propaganda. In any case, this is how Wikipedia tells it:
Bloody Sunday (Russian: Крова́вое воскресе́нье; IPA: [krɐˈvavəɪ vəskrʲɪˈsʲenʲjɪ]) is the name given to the events of Sunday, 22 January [O.S. 9 January] 1905 in St Petersburg, Russia, where unarmed demonstrators led by Father Georgy Gapon were fired upon by soldiers of the Imperial Guard as they marched towards the Winter Palace to present a petition to Tsar Nicholas II of Russia.
The consequences, again according to Wikipedia, were quite dramatic:
Bloody Sunday caused grave consequences for the Tsarist autocracy governing Imperial Russia, showing disregard for ordinary people which undermined the state. The events in St. Petersburg provoked public outrage and a series of massive strikes that spread quickly throughout the industrial centres of the Russian Empire. The massacre on Bloody Sunday is considered to be the start of the active phase of the Revolution of 1905. In addition to beginning the 1905 Revolution, historians such as Lionel Kochan in his book Russia in Revolution 1890-1918 view the events of Bloody Sunday to be one of the key events which led to the Russian Revolution of 1917.
That the Left has now coopted the term "Bloody Sunday" to describe the events at Selma should perhaps give us all pause for thought.
