City of Dayton spends $650,000 on security to cover nine KKK clansmen

Thanks to relentless fear-mongering by left-wing Democrats in the media, Hollywood and government, an otherwise completely irrelevant and barely attended Ku Klux Klan rally last Saturday in Ohio wound up attracting far more attention, coverage and fright than it deserved.

According to reports, only nine dopey KKK members attended the pitiful event. Yet had you been paying attention to the left-wing narrative prior to Saturday, you may have been left thinking that Dayton was about to be invaded by an army of raging bigots and racists.

Here’s how “super-sciency” left-wing Hollywood actress Alyssa Milano had portrayed the event:

Her followers attributed this allegedly newfound hatred to President Donald Trump:

The rally drew so much concern that city officials in Dayton spent $650,000 on security.

“Dayton City Manager Shelley Dickstein says the city spent about $250,000 on personnel and about $400,000 on materials ahead of Saturday’s rally,” ABC News reported Sunday. “Dickstein tells the Dayton Daily News there’s no way to recapture the spent funds but notes that safety measures were needed because ‘the world has changed greatly.'”

Has it, though? KKK rallies have been occurring since the group’s formation in 1865. Except that the number of participants has dropped drastically as racism has virtually disappeared from the country. As noted earlier, only nine Klansmen attended Saturday’s event.

Yet over 1,000+ protesters reportedly showed up — many of them from other recognized hate groups such as Antifa, Black Lives Matter and the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense. The latter group is so hateful that it was reportedly rejected by the original Black Panther Party.

Watch some of these protesters in action below:

Take note of the protesters who wore t-shirts that read, “Punch More Nazis.” Keep in mind that to the radical far-left, everybody to the right of Karl Marx himself is a so-called “Nazi,” including but not limited to black conservative activist Candace Owens and Jewish conservative commentator Ben Shapiro. So is retired 74-year-old California man Victor F.

Last month in Palo Alto, Victor was harassed and berated at a Starbucks by a radical left-winger who accused him of being a “Nazi” as per his “Make America Great Again” hat.

The perpetrator, left-wing activist Rebecca Parker Mankey, was known to loathe “Nazis.”


Far more protesters showed up than Klansmen. And according to investigative journalist Tim Pool, his team had known this would happen from day one.

“As with this rally, as with most rallies, we were predicting very very low turnout,” he said in video commentary posted to YouTube a day after the rally. “We were trying to figure out if
we wanted to contract somebody to go down and cover the event. …”

“We decided no, it wasn’t going to be worth it, and we were right. You know why? Well, only nine people showed up,” he added, before excoriating the media for fear-mongering over the event.

“The media is lying to you and spinning a web of nonsense about the right-wing boogie men coming to get you, and then Alyssa Milano says, ‘I don’t recognize my country anymore.’ Are you joking? There were way more Klansmen a hundred years ago.”

He was correct. The KKK and other white supremacy based groups are reportedly in rapid decline.

“Protesters show up for nothing because the media has you convinced there is a greater threat than there really is,” Pool continued. “No, they’re dwindling. Things are getting better. Violence is down. Yes, there are crimes.  Yes, there are bad people. Yes, there is racism. But this is just 9 people. It is tiny. 600 people showed up who believed something truly crazy was gonna happen.”

Listen to his  commentary below:

Luckily for everyone involved, no fights broke out during the Saturday rally. The same cannot be said of previous white supremacist events and rallies that were ginned up by the left. During one of those events, the Unite the Right rally two years ago in Charlottesville, Virginia, a woman was killed.

But these rallies and events don’t necessarily always involve actual white supremacy. During a free speech rally in Boston two years ago attended by conservative activist Shiva Ayyadurai, an Indian man, an estimated 40,000 left-wingers showed up to protest.

Why? Because they’d been led to believe by the far-left media that the rally was a “white supremacist” event. That was false, as Ayyadurai noted in a tweet at the time:
