Knights Party Press Release: July 14. 2020

Thomas Robb, the National Director of the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan based in Harrison Arkansas spoke out about this headline from The Daily Wire released on Sunday, July 12th. “Trump Threatens10 Years In PrisonFor Anyone Who Harms Federal Monuments.”

President Donald Trump threatened those who might topple federal monuments with a possible 10-year prison sentence Sunday morning, in an early Twitter thread.

The tweets echo the president’s executive order late last month, authorizing and encouraging federal law enforcement officials to seek the maximum penalty possible under the law for those protesters and rioters targeting monuments — a campaign that began with targeting monuments to key leaders of the Confederacy but has since expanded to include a number of the Founding Fathers, like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

Robb said, “A firm stance needs to be taken against the destruction of our White American historic statues, monuments, and flags. America’s White race wouldn’t enter a non-white country and expect that country to change or erase their history to suit us.”
