#Tennessee parks are hosting violent KKK + neo-Nazi groups + speakers like Richard Spencer +David Duke + supplying them with police protection. Friday will be second white power event in recent months. Info here on local officials to call to say enough! itsgoingdown.org/call-in-to-get…
This Friday June 28th - June 30th, a collection of neo-Nazi, KKK, and neo-Confederate groups will host a conference in Burns, #Tennessee, which will be the second white power conference in the last two months.
Speakers at the event include long-time neo-Nazi and former KKK leader, David Duke. Duke was recently portrayed in the Spike Lee movie, 'Black Klansman.'
Also speaking will be probably the second most well known white nationalist speaker in the US and the person who helped popularize the 'Alt-Right' in the American conciousness: Richard Spencer. Spencer is best known for his leading role in the diasterous "Unite the Right" rally.
Spencer once wrote: "[T]he Confederacy was based on the conclusion that Thomas Jefferson was wrong; the “cornerstone” of the new state was the “moral truth” of human inequality. Ours, too, should be a declaration...that all men are created unequal.”
Another speaker will be Rachel Pendergraft, a long-time KKK activist and member of the "Knights Party."
Pendergraft works alongside neo-Nazi Billy Roper, who once stated: "Every non-White on the planet has to become extinct. We need to remove these minor-league amateur races out of the game...The whole world is ours."
Other speakers and groups participating is Michael Hill from Leauge of the South who marched in Charlottesville and the Council for Conservative Citizens, who's manifesto helped influence Dylann Roof.
"At each of these events, the KKK and neo-Nazis are depending on the costly police and private security on hand – that we the public are paying for. All of this leads to a potentially violent environment, where the public loses access to public spaces and is under threat..."
Respectfully let officials in #Tennessee know that violent KKK and neo-Nazi groups are not welcome in public parks and "return it to the public at large which is made up of all colors and walks of life."
