The city of Memphis, TN decided to remove Confederate names from three parks and the Klu Klux Klan did not take to kindly to this news. Edward, a Klan leader who uses the interesting title, “KKK Exalted Cyclops” is promising the powers that be that he will bring the largest Klan rally to Memphis because of this devastating news.
According to RawStory, Forrest Park will become “Health Sciences Park,” Confederate Park will be called “Memphis Park” and Jefferson Davis Park will get the name “Mississippi River Park.” These are the name changes that made the “KKK Exalted Cyclops” want to rally? Cyclops told WMC-TV:
“You’re going to see the largest rally Memphis, Tennessee has ever seen. It’s not going to be 20 or 30, it’s going to be thousands of Klansmen from the whole United States coming to Memphis, Tennessee.”
The Klansmen are said to be meeting in the new “Health Sciences Park–” which was named after Confederate Army lieutenant General Nathan Bedford Forrest. Well, if you don’t stand for something, you surely will fall for anything, right? I guess since the KKK feels strongly about what these parks should be named, they should fight for their rights to keep them named after Confederacy members who paved the way for them to be racist jerks.
