Ku Klux Klan granted permit for rally in Troy

Word has surfaced that a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan has applied for and been granted a permit for a rally in Troy this Saturday.

The Greensboro News and Record reported that the KKK group asked the Troy Police Department for the permit “to rally against immigration”.

The paper says the permit was requested July 11 and quotes Troy Police Chief Kenny Allen as saying the permit was issued, but the organization had not picked it up as of Aug. 5. The deadline to do so is 10 a.m. Friday.

The permit allows up to 200 people to gather at the Montgomery County Courthouse, Sat., Aug. 9, at 4 p.m.

The KKK is also reported to be planning a private event Saturday in the Davidson County town of Welcome. Advocates for immigrants and the gay and lesbian community are said to be preparing for counter-protests in Welcome.

  1. This is so disappointing.

    The article says the permit “the organization had picked it up as of Aug. 5. The deadline to do so is 10 a.m. Friday.” Does this mean they HAVE NOT picked up the permit – or they have? Either way – they need to leave the Hispanic community alone and do something with their own hate mongers.

    Pat, the article should have said “had not”, and we have made the correction. Thanks for pointing it out the error, and we apologize for any confusion.

  4. Concerned Citizen says:

    I really pray that everyone that can comes out to protest this and show that we are about love and not hate.
