Knights Party Press Release: June 27. 2022

The Leftist hypocrisy shines through on this article, headlined, “Scare at Arizona Capitol as pro-abortion protesters disrupt Senate session “, published by The Washington Examiner, on Saturday, June 25th.

Law enforcement used flashbangs and tear gas to disperse the crowd as hundreds of people protesting for abortion rights gathered at the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix on Friday night after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and ended the nearly 50-year nationwide right to an abortion.

Although local reports described demonstrations as being peaceful throughout the day, the situation got tense late when demonstrators began to bang on the windows and doors of the Senate building, trying to break the glass, according to 3TV/CBS 5. An unlawful assembly was declared by law enforcement, and measures were taken to scatter the crowd.

“Troopers deployed gas outside the Senate building after protesters attempted to break the glass. The crowd then moved to the Wesley Bolin Plaza where some monuments were vandalized. Gas was deployed again to disperse the crowd,” the Department of Public Safety said in a statement.

Some Republicans compared the chaos to the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

National Director of the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan, Thomas Robb, with his National Office centrally based in Harrison, Arkansas, spoke saying, “Here we actually have a domestic terrorist organization, Antifa, which Joe Biden awhile back called a figment of our imagination, destroying and vandalizing public property. They actualy called for, and warned of, violence. Yet why isn’t this being labeled an ‘insurrection’? This, in my opinion is worse than anything that happened on January 6. 2021, in which an innocent protester, Ashli Babbitt, was murdered in cold blood by a Capitol police officer. I highly doubt this will have the arrests and manhunts that the January 6th had. Many of those protesters remain in jail to this day. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.”
