A Ku Klux Klan rally in Anaheim this past Saturday protesting "White Lives Matter" was interrupted by some counter-protesting metalheads, and it ended in a bloody brawl.
The brawl, which was started by the counter-protesting metalheads resulted in three people being stabbed by Klansmen, two with a shiv and one with a flag pole. Five members of the KKK and seven protesters were arrested, with the KKK members getting off after the video showed they were acting in self-defense. The seven protesters are now looking to sue for alleged police brutality, according to the LA Times, as one protester left with a broken arm. Footage has surfaced of the event and it is gruesome:
Sadly, the counter-protester you see in the image was badly injured via stabbing and his medical bills are adding up. There has been a GoFundMe set up to help this hero. Donate here.
As Axl Rosenberg of MetalSucks rightly states, "freedom of speech means that the assholes in the KKK can say whatever dumb shit they want." They are legally allowed to have their racist protest.
At the same time, as somebody who is fed up by these idiots, it's great to see some people take action into their own hands and scare the shit out of these dumb racist California hicks. I have no doubt in my mind that there was instigation to counter-protesters as you can clearly hear racial epithets being thrown throughout the video. Although, if they wanted to take the peaceful protest route, they should've just invited some white girls and just started making out with them and proposing marriage to them in front of the KKK. That would've done far worse damage to these KKK idiots.
Ultimately, fuck the KKK and fuck racism.
