From a Klan flag-covered podium, about a half-dozen Klan members spoke about illegal immigration, quoted Biblical scripture and criticized presidential politics, international banks, the federal stimulus, residents who are Jewish, black, gay or Hispanic and even the swine flu. A crumpled Mexican flag lay on the ground.

After the speeches and a final round of "white power," Terrence Farris, who is black, yelled, "Y'all a bunch of clowns."
Two Klansmen then set the Mexican flag on fire. One of the Klansmen stomped out the fire with his military boots and kicked the flag.

I bet it won't be too long before the anti-immigrant posters come in to justify their actions.

Anti-Immigrant Posters? Where? I haven't seen any "Anti-Immigrant" Posters on these boards, just people that respect the law and wish for it to be enforced..

YES! Thank you!

And I'm not sure why OP called us "anti-immigrant." None of us are, at least not from what I've seen.

Criminal aliens are NOT immigrants at all!

Certain posters on this board are mental prisoners of Wonderland. They figure if they click their heels together and repeat a delusional phrase a certain number of times, it magically becomes the truth and they get to travel somewhere over the rainbow. In this case that would be illegal aliens who pretend that they are legal "immigrants"

That being said, while I don't condone the existence of the KKK or their racist mantra, since illegal aliens are allowed to march and protest on American soil (when they should be arrested and deported), why should American citizens who happen to be KKK members not be allowed the right to march and voice their opinion regarding illegal immigration in their own country?

I certainly don't approve of the KKK either. I'd take it a step further and say this hurts our cause. I actually don't want the KKK marching for the simple fact that American approval of the KKK is so low (as it rightfully should be) and I fear that many will see "KKK" and switch to the opposite side by default.

Agreed. I am a child of the civil rights movement and thus, old enough to remember the horror and devastation the klan brought upon the lives of my people and the White Americans who dared to help us. I in no way, shape, form or fashion support their's or any other group's hatred of people based on the premise of race. But again, (and unfortunately) they are Americans and thus entitled to the same rights and freedoms as the rest of us.

As for some White Americans switching to the opposite side? It didn't happen 50 years ago when they had the opportunity to join us "colored people" who are Americans, you can rest assured, they certainly aren't going to join the ranks of brown foreigners who have illegally invaded "their" country.

The KKK is anti immigrant, especially anti non white/christian immigrant.

There is noone who posts here that fits that description and to pretend that there is is completely fraudalent.

Anyways, I am surprised that someone who holds to the 'la raza' mentality isn't somewhat sympathetic with the Klan...same message just opposite sides of the coin after all.

minutemen and klan are bout the only ones even saying anything. the rest just hire mexican gardeners and housekeepers. most businesses inc government subcontract grounds and janitor almost always illegals doing the job after a few months of impression management with green card people.
this is a labor issue american government refusing to enforce immigration to assist business with cheap labor. in eurpose the unions fight this behavior but here we hate unions.

IMHO the Minutemen are a legitimate anti-illegal group who are truly concerned about America and it's sovereignty. Spending time at the borders on a voluntary basis shows their true dedication to their cause. Additionally, the Minutemen are comprised of all races and nationalities. The klan on the other hand, are simply a bunch of ignorant antagonists and racist cowards.
