A KKK rally at the historic Gettysburg National Military Park was cancelled due to the federal government shutdown, reported NBC10 Philadelphia.
The Confederate White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan based in Maryland had been granted a permit for a Saturday rally at the historic site of the American Civil War which included a First Amendment demonstration by the white supremacist group. However, park officials rescinded all permits for special events because of the shutdown.
Officials of the Gettysburg Park said they had approved the permit for the KKK because the land was “available for citizens to exercise their right to freedom of speech, even if the views expressed are contrary to those of most Americans.”
