One KKK Group Protests Another Over Immigration

Kate's a native of Alabama, so I always give her grief when stories like this come up -- Members of one Klan group plan to protest another in Cullman. She actually has relatives that live in this town; I've heard hair-raising tales about the racism and organized Klan activity there.

Let's start from the beginning -- a national branch of the Klan has secured a permit to hold a protest against illegal immigrants at the Cullman County Courthouse. (Cullman Times):
Dan Quinn, Grand Dragon of the Realm of Alabama for the Church of the National Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, Inc., wrote to Mayor Don Green and the council asking for permission to hold the rally Nov. 10.
Quinn said the reason for the group's meeting would be to speak "out against the invasion of our beautiful state by the illegal immigrants and their impact on our societies."
However, another branch of the KKK will have none of this. Its leadership thinks that the other Klan faction is uncouth and un-Christian. Try reading this without laughing.
Members of one Ku Klux Klan organization say they will assemble at the courthouse Nov. 10 to show their opposition to another Klan group that plans an anti-immigration rally there that day.
