KKK fliers distributed in Pangburn

By The Associated Press

This article was published February 10, 2012 at 8:09 a.m.

— Officials in Pangburn are investigating who distributed fliers downtown promoting a local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan.

Mayor Gary Doyle says the fliers only list a post-office box and a picture of a Klan member wearing a pointed white hood. Doyle says residents first reported the fliers Monday and that the police department is investigating.

But Doyle says the fliers are protected free speech — the only thing illegal is that they were posted on public utility poles.

The fliers promote the White County Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. But the national director of Ku Klux Klan LLC tells The Daily Citizen that the Pangburn group is not associated with his organization.

Director Travis Pierce tells the newspaper that many small, unofficial organizations form throughout the country.

I thought the Conservative Political Action Committee meeting was in DC, not Pangburn.

I'm pretty sure if the NAACP had been handing out KKK fliers it would have made national news lol!

So the NAACP is the equivalent of the KKK?

Wow; what's in the water down there?

Yeah, newswatcher, because the NAACP is definitely the yin to the KKK's yang. *facepalm*

Looking at newswatcher's prior comments on this site, s/he only appears to pop up when it's an issue of race, and likes to use the word "orientals" for Asian people. Maybe newswatcher was the one posting the flyers?
