If their rally is so Scottish, why is it being held in Tennessee's goat farm pole of inaccessibility?

You know who else tried gathering the clans.

The Nationalist Front - described on its website as "an umbrella organization to bring unity and solidarity to the White Nationalist Movement in North America" - planned the event as the first of many anti-immigration rallies in the area, with the hope of bringing together nationalist, confederates and neo-Nazis.
The ancillary group is comprised of many others, including the National Socialist Movement, White Lives Matter, League of the South and others. The Southern Poverty Law Center considers them all to be extremist organizations.


...but don't you dare confuse them, folks - sure, the white nationalists, white supremacists, Confederate flag aficionados, neo-Nazis, Klan members, "Southern Heritage" fans, and so on are all marching together (in lockstep, one might say) but you'll hurt their fee fees if you point out that any group that not just tolerates, but warmly accepts goddamned Nazis, clearly approves of Nazism.

Organizers applied for permits for back-to-back demonstrations on Oct. 28 in Shelbyville

Next they plan on marches in Brockway, Ogdenville and North Haverbrook.

Well, subs, the first KKK was founded by Scots/Irish Confederate veterans, and The Clansman, the book upon which Birth of a Nation was based was written by the son of a Scottish minister.

So it's just the KKK going back to their roots.

FTFA: The Nationalist Front...  planned the event... with the hope of bringing together nationalist, confederates and neo-Nazis.

We won World War 2 by killing Nazis. Why did we stop?  Is it because they changed their name to Republican?

Looking at the photos, I'm struck, over and over again, by just how skeevy and unappealing the *master race* is. What a bunch of bottom-feeding, scum-sucking, wooly-hatted mouth-breathers..

Iron Maiden has a song called "The Clansman." It's about the Scottish variety, not DW Griffith; the lyrics make that clear.

Except I'd like to see a robe-clad KKK-ster pick up, run with, and toss a caber, instead of running around with tiki-torches.

Why are Republicans having campaign rallies in an off year?
 
2017-10-13 07:43:32 AM  
They are very similar. One group wears an apparel that allows its warriors and bagpipe players to 'free-ball', allowing for an increase in performance of both those activities.

The other group wears an apparel to hide their image so they are able to commit racial crimes and burn crosses, allowing for an anonymous performance of both those activities.

I can see a lot of foreign cultures getting these two confused.

As someone who lives around Knoxville, they seem awfully embarrassed about the KKK.

Yeah, but the SPLC issued too-strongly-worded of a statement about anti-immigration organizations, so Both Sides Are Bad®.

Heh, just earlier this week I noticed a new business a few blocks from me here in New Town Edinburgh. "Clan" was part of the name. My first reaction was "that would be a poor choice in the USA."

Some yes. But head into the right (wrong) areas, and they're bleaching their sheets already. It's a very schizo town.

Well, as I have been informed by many people on this site, that's why punching Nazis is bad: Before you know it, everyone who holds a completely normal, mainstream, entirely reasonable conservative opinion that you don't like - "white nationalists, white supremacists, Confederate flag aficionados ... Klan members, 'Southern Heritage' fans" - gets labeled a Nazi. That's terribly unfair. Some of them merely associate with Nazis.

The T-280 Space Construction Vehicle, or SCV, is the workhorse of the Terrans in the Koprulu sector. Unlike the Protoss' Probes or the Zerg's Drones, the Terrans can use the SCV to not only construct new buildings and harvest resources, but also repair.

The Confederação Brasileira de Futebol, or CBF, is the governing body of Brazilian football.

Hope that clears it up!

These men aren't attractive to women... That's surprising? Sexual frustration is a core tenant of The Proud Boys idiots. They don't jerk off because that makes them manlier and more attractive or something similarly dumb.

You could probably solve half this problem with an NGO.

They're just too noble and chivalrous to bring their numerous women into harms way.
These men live by a warrior's code, and you couldn't possibly understand them.

Sign of the times. The Nazis were getting desperate for new blood, and the creepers needed someone other than themselves to blame for not being able to get a date, so the Nazis worked up a recruiting campaign just for them, emphasizing the old THEY TUK OUR WIMMENFOLK meme. The demographics were never exactly even, but this skewed them like never before.

take their pictures and publicly identify them.  See what happens.
 
2017-10-13 09:00:16 AM  
after charlottsville, I checked out the "Unite The Right" fb page.  Because I like giving people a chance to explain themselves, and maybe there was something about them that I wasn't getting.

It was pretty frakking bad.  Those guys are bad people, and bad things should happen to them.
 
2017-10-13 09:04:59 AM  
Those Nazis are so cute you just want to have a B-17 drop gifts on them like the old days.
