Exclusive: Photos From Saturday’s Klan Rally in Nahunta
Several hundred people gathered on Saturday in Nahunta, Georgia for a rally staged by the KKK. The crowd consisted of a nearly equal mixture of skinheads and Klansmen, protestors, law enforcement and curious onlookers.
The following photos of the event were taken for the Jacksonville Observer by Stephen Covington, who retains full copyright and ownership to all images. The editors of The Jacksonville Observer wish to express our obvious disgust with the message of racial hatred on display at this event. These photos are of interest from a historical perspective as a "Klan rally" is, thankfully, a rather rare event.
The lunatic fringe, although a small minority of the population, will occasionally feel compelled to parade its animus in public.
As Edmund Burke once said, “All that is necessary for the forces of evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”
The anti-democratic forces that operate at either end of the political spectrum should be confronted at every opportunity.
