Cross Burning is Cool Again in North Carolina

Wow, North Carolina is moving back to the 1950s with lightening speed.  Having just passed a constitutional ban on gay people loving each other, now every single white person is invited to a good ol’ fashioned cross burning lighting:

KKK Flier in Reidsville Invites ‘White People Only’ to ‘Cross Lighting’

The Ku Klux Klan protested in Eden last week, and this week some of its members have been passing out fliers inviting people in Reidsville to a cross-burning.

The fliers were placed in and around Sherwood Drive, Linville Drive, Reids School Road and Poplar Street in the city.

Annie P. Pinnix and her husband were among the residents who received the flier.

“I’m a little bothered by it,” Pinnix said.

Pinnix said the flier was found in her and her neighbors’ driveways, rolled up like a newspaper and tied with a yellow rubber band. Reidsville Police Chief Edd Hunt confirmed other residents found the fliers in a similar fashion.

The flier reads: “Join us, the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, for a rally and cross lighting, Saturday, May 26, Harmony, North Carolina. Free Admition (sic)-White People Only. No alcohol, drugs, fighting, glass bottles or weapons. Free on site camping-all major motels in area. Souvenirs. Vendors. Food and beverages for Sale. Cross lighting at dusk-a white unity event. Live country band. Security provided by LWK.”

The flier also provided contact information for those wanting to attend the event.


North Carolina is reminding us of what the mythical “good old days” that the Republicans want to take us back to looked like.

    I’ll be sure to bring my JPMorgan Chase VISA card to be able to purchase some of those neat extras. I wonder if I’ll see Jaime Dimbulb there? Or has this event already occurred, by now? If so, wull, shucks and gol darn!

    Yeah, I’m salivating over the thought of those trinkets too. Maybe a bobble-headed Klan figurine for my dashboard. You know, show the love.
