Dear Friends,

I am organizing a silent vigil in response to the KKK rally that is
taking place in Blairsville, GA tomorrow at noon. We need to let the
KKK know that their message of hate will not be accepted in our
neighborhoods. Please join me in this effort. Grab a blue shirt, bring
some ear plugs and comfortable shoes, and meet us in the parking lot
of the First Baptist Church in Blairsville at 11 o'clock tomorrow. We
will be walking from there to the courthouse. Please post and share
with all your friends.

The First Baptist Church of Blairsville is located at 296 Blue Ridge
Street, Blairsville, GA 30512.(Located near the intersection of Hwy
515 and 129)

Grace and Peace, Julia

there will be a sister-vigil tonite at midnight at Southlake Mall. Ride MARTA to the Hapeville station tonight, then it's a short three mile walk to the mall.

Why don't you wear pink shirts so you can include the fight against breast cancer, too?

You are feeding into the demonstration. This group has the right, just like any group, to demonstrate.

No, Truthis, the Klan doesn't speak for you, but Occupy Wall Street did when those freaks pissed on and burned the American flag, shit on police cars, and all the rest of the disgusting behavior witnessed on national television.

Get your priorities straight, moonbat.

The best thing that could happen is for no one to show up. All they want is our attention.

Im so glad to find this post and thank you Julia and First Baptist Church of Blairsville, i have posted this to my FB and am glad to know the people of my town want it to be known that while the 1st amendment may prevent us from stopping this ridiculous KKK rally/publicity stunt in our town , we are not required to listen to their nonsense! We can take care of our own roads and they need to go back to their own private backyard hiding behind a mask of shame and get the heck out of Blairsville - we don't want them here! We are a peaceful beautiful small mountain town not racists. The KKK does not represent Blairsville and we won't listen!

”To ignore evil is to become an accomplice to it.” The silent rally is a non-violent peaceful protest whose aim is to draw attention to the bigotry and hatred that still exists in our world. United in our silence we desire to give voice to those who have suffered, and continue to suffer, under the ill disguised cloak of white separatism.

Also... just as an FYI, the First Baptist Church was gracious to let us use the parking lot as a gathering space. They are not sponsoring our vigil and the vigil is taking place at the courthouse, not the Baptist Church.

Thanks, Julia

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.

Take pictures of all KKK supporters. Post them here online. I think what is needed is a "Wall of Shame"

If they have hoods on, ask them to remove them for a photograph. Ask what they are ashamed or afraid of.

IF it happens half of the onlookers (about five) will be FBI or GBI agents, taking pictures (and names).

FYI for yalls; it's against Georgia law to wear masks or hoods to cover the face, etc. on public property.
Youse will be able to see their faces.

Truthis... I think you're jumping to conclusion. Do you seriously mean that everybody is either Jews, Socialists or Unionists??? Shame on you your racist!

If I have to explain the quote to you then you're too stupid to ever understand it.

People aren't going to get near the demonstration.
Do any of you have any contacts with what is really going on in town?
If Julia doesn't have a permit, she's SOL.

KKK doesn't wear sheets when they demonstrate.
What idiots.

Y'all have been in the mountains too long living WITH ALL WHITE PEOPLE! What a bunch of hypocrites.

Yes, as usual.
Wonder if these people would protest as much if a group of black militants came to Blairsville insisting the town is racist because it is so WHITE!!!!

Guess, that's a different story all together.

They'd likely not say anything more than, "As long as they don't move in next to me!"

Really, Ms know it all? They were in full regalia minus the faces covered. Pointy little hats for their pointy little heads. And what a puny little lot of bullies they looked to be.

If I had not read about it in the NGN, I would have thought we were having a police convention. Anyone know how many KKK idjits actually showed up? I am curious.
