Ku Klux Klan & neo-Nazis rally against Iraq war
The National Socialist Movement and the World Knights of the Ku Klux Klan will hold a joint rally against the Iraq War at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania September 2 under a permit held by World Knights of the Ku Klux Klan Imperial Wizard Gordon Young [....] calling for Northern / Southern unity and against the imperialist policies of Zionism, both within the US and without.(See also the story in PhillyBurbs.com, below).
I'm sure this is a program that many people of good will can get behind. For example, it seems to dovetail with the position of International ANSWER, the anti-Zionist Stalinist-front organization (run by avid supporters of heroic anti-imperialists like Kim Jong Il, Saddam Hussein, & Slobodan Milosevic) that played a major role in organizing many of the big rallies against the Iraq war in 2002-2003.

Klan Gets Permit for Gettysburg Protest
GETTYSBURG, Pa. - The National Park Service has granted the Ku Klux Klan's request to hold a rally and protest the Iraq war at the Civil War battlefield where Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address.
Gordon Young of the World Knights of the Ku Klux Klan obtained the permit Wednesday for about 100 people to participate in a Sept. 2 event at Gettysburg National Military Park.
The purpose will be to demonstrate opposition to the Iraq war and to speak on "white unity between the north and south," the permit said.
Park Superintendent John A. Latschar said in a statement Monday that the permit was granted in light of rights to free speech and assembly.
More than 51,000 soldiers were killed, injured, captured or went missing in the three-day battle that ended July 3, 1863, according to the National Park Service. The union victory is considered a major turning point in the war.
Lincoln delivered his address in November 1863 at the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery at Gettysburg.
Young's group and other white supremacist organizations held a similar event last month at Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg, Md.
