Klan holds rally at Gettysburg September 3, 2006

You have to have a certain grudging admiration for guys who can look like such morons without dying of embarrassment. 


 Silly Klan Guy

 Is the crotch-fondling some sort of Klan symbol?

Sun Sep 3, 11:39 AM ET 

GETTYSBURG, Pa. – About 30 Ku Klux Klan members proclaimed hatred for blacks, Jews, gays and Latinos as they stood behind barricades at the Civil War battlefield where Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address.

Yeah, big deal.  A bunch of dorks desecrate an American shrine with their message of racial hate.  Yawn.

Gordon Young of the World Knights of the Ku Klux Klan also called Saturday for the U.S. to pull its troops out of Iraq and use them to patrol the Mexican border to stop illegal immigration.

Wait a frickin’ minute.  Are you telling me these fucktards want to interfere with my God-given right to cheap yard work? 

They must  be stopped.

That’s really Michael Jackson under all those robes.

2. BrewFan - September 3, 2006

The dude on the left looks like Jesse Jackson. Oh sweet irony.

3. Bart - September 3, 2006

He looks like former football great, Jim Brown.

4. Senor Sobek - September 3, 2006

a) Dude on the left certainly does not look white.

b) The Klan must not realize how many blacks and latinos are in the armed forces.

What are the odds that anyone in the Klan has ever actually read the Emancipation Proclamation?

5. BrewFan - September 3, 2006

I was going to slam Jim Brown just to mess with you Bart, but I couldn’t think of anything bad. He was great and maybe the greatest tailback ever to play the game. The only slam I could think of was he retired too early.

The Dirty Dozen is one of my all time favorite movies too.

6. Bart - September 3, 2006

I’m not really a fan of Jim Brown. I don’t really like his nonsense while dressed in African garb.

The Brewers got quite a streak going, huh?

7. BrewFan - September 3, 2006

Blow me 🙂

What is it with these fringe loser groups and their love of dress up?

You have the Islamic losers who parade around in their all black, all red, or all green ninja outfits. These white supremacists fucks who either go with the pseudo ss uniforms or the utterly ridiculous robes and hats that look like something the evil necromancer religious order in a D&D CRPG would wear. Same with the silly masks and outfits the “Anarchists” put on during the WTO meetings.

Dressing like an 11 year old boy’s image of cool and tough is a pretty good indication that you have significant self-confidence issues and are compensating for some feeling of inadequacy when it comes to your place in human society. At least they should dress like pirates, so the rest of us get even bigger laughs.

You must be this tall to ride the Klan-O-Coaster

10. Michael - September 3, 2006

That was great, Dave.

12. steve_in_hb - September 3, 2006

Looks like they are doing the move from “Greased Lightening” – at the 35 second mark.

13. John - September 3, 2006

Steve, I don’t think the answer is envy. I think that we IBers need our own uniform to counter the virulent nonsense that exists out there.

I recommend something from for the wimmin and from here for the guys.

I like Pirates, Steve. I would have made a great pirate.

14. John - September 3, 2006

“We put the noose on a branch this high off the ground and the damned thing didn’t work …”

15. kevlarchick - September 3, 2006

Dude! John, chain mail is so…S & M. Can we keep it simple for the wimmins with some redneck cotton halter tops and daisy dukes? I’d go barefoot, that’s no big. I mean really. Metal chafes the skin.

My trip to Gettysburg was like walking on hallowed ground. To hold a Klan rally there where so many died for honor and country is a sacrilege.

16. John - September 3, 2006

KC, for you, I’ll say yes.

I’m with you on Gettysburg. This is where I just grit my teeth about freedom in this country. It’s the good and the bad. And the stupid.

Never forget the stupid.

17. Dave in Texas - September 3, 2006

perhaps the greatest speech ever penned.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Men’s Uniforms (Safe for Work)

And yes, the thought of those assholes strutting at Gettysburg with their message of hate and stupidity is annoying to say the least.

Re Greased Lightning Clip:

Steve, sometimes you scare me.

20. steve_in_hb - September 3, 2006

Michael –

Is it my good memory despite the alcohol and weed? Or is it that for a heterosexual male I’m pretty familiarwith musicals?

Come to SoCal Michael and we can watch Kiss Me Kate on dvd.

“I like Pirates, Steve. I would have made a great pirate.”

Not me. I didn’t want to be a lawyer or a pirate. I wanted to be a lumberjack!

22. John - September 4, 2006

And yet you became a lawyer. And a crocodile.

Pity the poor beast.

23. John - September 4, 2006

“Where the white women at?”

“They’re over there.”

24. John - September 4, 2006

“The cow I like has to stand about this high.”

“Well, that’s where we differ. The cow I like stands about this high. But I got shorter legs.”

25. Dave in Texas - September 4, 2006

psssst! dumb asses!

Hitler used his right arm!

26. Dave in Texas - September 4, 2006

psssssst! Nazis! use your right hand

27. Natalie Rae - September 6, 2006

omg – your commentary is hilarious

28. Dave in Texas - September 6, 2006

Our tribe was know as the Fakawis. We were part of the land, and the sky. We stood upon the bluffs, overlooking the valley, and held up our hands like this, just above the horizon, and said “where de fak are we”?

The Klan Rallies at Gettysburg — Michael

You have to have a certain grudging admiration for guys who can look like such fucktardinous morons without dying of embarrassment. Is the crotch-fondling some sort of Klan symbol? Maybe he’s just covering up because, well, he’s just not that…

“The concession stand? Its over that way.No, between the statue of Lee surrendering and the Statue of Sherman entering Atlanta. Dammit.”

31. Cowboy Blob - September 6, 2006

Dude! John, chain mail is so…S & M. Can we keep it simple for the wimmins with some redneck cotton halter tops and daisy dukes? I’d go barefoot, that’s no big. I mean really. Metal chafes the skin.

It also excites the D&D Geeks. Ace would approve.

33. Knemon - September 6, 2006

Is it me, or does the guy on the right look a lot like the “Library Masturbator” persecuted by Carl Monday?

34. Tom M - September 6, 2006

“Yes, that’s it, you keep your fingers together for the american crawl. You’ll be swimming like a pro soon, Billy Bob. By the way, you shouldn’t be wearing the white swim robe after Labor Day.

35. steve_in_hb - September 6, 2006

Tom –

I think you are on to something with the water, but I think it’s more likely they are doing a walk-thru practice of their synchronized swimming routine before they hit the pool.
