Ku Klux Klan

While bigots work themselves into hysterics over fabricated fairy tales about #Nov4, let’s remember what happened in Greensboro on November 3rd, 1979.  That day, KKK members, with the full cooperation and support of the police, opened fire on an anti-Klan demonstration, murdering five people in broad daylight.  The racist murderers were all acquitted by an all-white jury.

‘Doug,’ you see, is Doug Jones—Moore’s opponent in that senate race, who is not just a Democrat, but also the man who prosecuted the klansmen responsible for the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham. Doug Jones sided with those four little black girls rather than siding with the defense of white hegemony in Alabama.

For Republicans in the Year of Our Trump 2017, that makes him worse than a child molester.
