Since when has the Selma civil rights march been refereed to as "Bloody Sunday". I have never heard it called that before.
IMHO the KKK is totally irrelevant.

The first march took place on March 7, 1965. Bevel, Amelia Boynton, and others helped organize it. The march gained the nickname Bloody Sunday after its 600 marchers were attacked at the Edmund Pettus Bridge after leaving Selma; state troopers and county posse attacked the unarmed marchers with billy clubs and tear gas. Law enforcement beat Boynton unconscious; media publicized a picture of her lying wounded on the bridge worldwide.

How it works nowadays is the Sharptons, et al, PAY the few remaining KKK types to do this stuff. The kluckers get money, Sharpton gets TV time.
Everybody gets what they want.
We had this happen here in North Louisiana a couple of years ago when a black small town mayor was on trial for malfeasance.

They are totally irrelevant, but needing a bogeyman, the left will promote them as a clear and present danger, lurking in every corner.

A bunch of Dim-o-rat schmucks.
You gotta “love” how the MSM always conflates the Kook Kuck Klan with Republicans / NRA / conservatives / etc..., even though the Republicans were anti-jim crow and pro civil rights, the NRA was formed to PROTECT the gun rights fo former slaves, and the conservatives want to stop the black abortion genocide.

That's good. You should be very watchful.
And watch you don't come anywhere near my home in central Virginia, because on my property white hoods and robes are used for target practice.

It was never called “Bloody Sunday.” For me, that was the Irish thing that happened in the early 70s. The one that brought fame to Berndette Devlin.
I suspect a hoax. I’ve been on that bridge - that is a poor old Southern town that seemed quite innocent to me...

Great, some inbred fool with a car and a printer makes up some KKK flyers and gives the national media and liberal race grievance-mongering organizations fodder to claim that Racism is Alive and Well!!!! If they are real lucky, this dope will say something nice about the GOP.

I’m guessing the only Clan members left are various law enforcement agency agitators trying to entrap one another.
I thought the esteemed DEMOCRAT Senator Robert Byrd had passed....
We need a Republican prosecutor to go after the perps.
