PELHAM, N.C. — A chapter of the Ku Klux Klan said it will hold a victory parade in North Carolina to celebrate Donald Trump’s win over Hillary Clinton this week.
The Loyal White Knights are planning the parade for Dec. 3, according to a post on the Pelham, N.C., group’s website advertising a “Victory Klavalkade Klan Parade.”
No exact time or place is specified, just the date and the message, “TRUMP=TRUMP’S RACE UNITED MY PEOPLE.”
The Loyal White Knights number between 150 and 200 members, according to the Anti-Defamation League, and were behind a rally in South Carolina last year to protest the removal of the Confederate flag from the state Capitol building.
Earlier this year, Trump received an endorsement from the Imperial Wizard of the Rebel Brigade of the Ku Klux Klan during an interview with WWBT. He also was endorsed by David Duke, the former leader of the KKK, who celebrated Trump’s win on Twitter.
