While President Trump continues to provide political cover for racist groups throughout the country, a leader of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) is now celebrating the fact that an innocent American was murdered in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend.
Justin Moore, who claims to be the Grand Dragon for the Loyal White Knights of Ku Klux Klan, said in a voicemail sent to North Carolina TV station WBTV that Heather Heyer, who was killed when a white nationalist drove his car into a crowd of counter protesters, deserved to die:
“I’m sorta glad that them people got hit and I’m glad that girl died. They were a bunch of Communists out there protesting against somebody’s freedom of speech, so it doesn’t bother me that they got hurt at all.”
Moore also said that he believes “we’re going to see more stuff like this happening at white nationalist events,” and added:
“We were out there and I seen a lot of communist flags and anti-fascist and we’re going to see more stuff like this. White people are getting fed up with the double standard setup in America today by the controlled press.”
What does Moore think of accused murderer James Allen Fields Jr., who has been charged with Heyer’s death? He’s proud of him:
“Nothing makes us more proud at the KKK than we see white patriots such as James Fields Jr, age 20, taking his car and running over nine communist anti-fascist, killing one n*gger-lover named Heather Heyer. James Fields, hail victory. It’s men like you that have made the great white race strong and will be strong again.”
Keep in mind that Donald Trump said some of the people marching with scum like Justin Moore were “good people.” If they were good, why in the hell were they on the side of a bigoted worm like Moore and his ilk?
The 45th President of the United States has thrown in his lot with people like Justin Moore and James Fields Jr. Let that sink in for a minute and then ask yourself a question: Is this the person who should be leading our country?
