The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Even the Klan rejects Occupy Charlotte as unpatriotic

They originally had support from both the KKK and American Nazis, but the actions of Occupy Charlotte have now even offended the Klan:

In other Occupy Charlotte news, after Charlotte City Councilman Andy Dulin brought up the Ku Klux Klan on Facebook last week, CL reached out to North Carolina’s Loyal White Knights of the KKK for comment. Chris Barker, the organization’s imperial wizard, responded Saturday afternoon to discuss both Dulin’s comments and Occupy Charlotte’s flag burning incident.

Regarding Dulin’s comments, Barker said, “I truly don’t think he understands what the Klan stands for or what it even means.” He went on to explain that the organization is “an American institution,” “is really all about good, Christian people coming together to help each other,” and that it’s still against the races mixing and “immigrants taking jobs.” He also said, “A lot of people need to get over what happened in the 60s and move on.”

Regarding the flag burning that took place at Occupy Charlotte’s campsite on Old City Hall’s lawn, Barker said, “I don’t think you should have the right to burn the American flag.” He also said that if people don’t like America, they should move, going on to say that prospective Klan members must take an oath that includes a promise “to be patriotic towards veterans, the flag and the country.”

These idiots make the Klan look comparatively better.

How is that even possible?

The news comes from an update to the same article that Ace linked,  noting that even Occupy Charlotte was so disgusted with itself that it has split.
