KKK Rally Ends With Stabbings, Arrests

At least four people have been stabbed in a brawl between Ku Klux Klan members and counter-protesters in Anaheim, California, US police said.
Thirteen people, both KKK members and rival demonstrators, were arrested.
The violence broke out when several Klan members arrived at a local park for a rally and were attacked by counter-protesters, according to police, BBC reported.
One of the stabbing victims is said to be in a serious condition.
A Klansman who allegedly stabbed one of the demonstrators with a flag pole is among those detained.
The counter-protests had been underway for hours before the KKK members arrived, witnesses reported.
As the Klansmen unpacked signs, they were said to have been surrounded by demonstrators.
Some were seen kicking a man whose shirt read “Grand Dragon”, the name of a high-ranking KKK member, reports said.
“A lot of us were trying to break it up,” one witness, Dion Garcia, told Reuters.
“This was not necessary; they should’ve just let the Klan protest. This is America; we have free speech.”
The Ku Klux Klan is one of the oldest and most infamous hate groups in the US, and has targeted African Americans, Jews, Catholics and immigrants, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups.
The group has a long history in Anaheim, with KKK members elected to the city council in the 1920s.
