Police say five Ku Klux Klan members who were arrested following a violent brawl in Anaheim have been released because evidence show they acted in self-defense.
Anaheim Sgt. Daron Wyatt said Sunday that seven people who remain in custody were seen beating, stomping and attacking the Klansmen with wooden posts.
This is a fantastic precedent.
These antifa faggots have been committing brutal acts of terrorism against our people and getting away with it for way too long. Now, we’ve sent a message: if you attack us, we will defend ourselves, and you will end up in jail while we’re down at the bar celebrating our victory.
This was 30 non-Whites and faggots on 3 Klan guys, Klan stabbed 3 people, antifa stabbed no one.
Antifa are going to think twice before attacking another Klan rally.
A police statement said the clash, which erupted after six Klan members arrived at a park Saturday for a planned anti-immigration rally, was started by more than a larger group of counter protesters who had “the intent of perpetrating violence.”
Police said the Klansmen stabbed three counter protesters with knives and the decorative end of a flag pole, but said they had a right to defend themselves when attacked.
Mayhem ensued Saturday as soon as six Klan members pulled up in a black SUV for a rally they had advertised in advance and pulled out signs saying “White Lives Matter.”
Dozens of protesters swarmed in and someone smashed a window. The SUV then sped away, leaving three Klansmen dressed in black shirts decorated with the Klan cross and Confederate flag patches outnumbered.
Police said one Klansmen carrying an American flag stabbed a protester with the bald eagle decorating the end of his pole. Counter-protesters, meanwhile, were seen stomping on Klan members. By the end of the melee, three people had been stabbed, one critically, and a dozen others arrested.
