White Supremacists Communing With Nature

Attention all white people: There are 150 slots available for a Sept. 15 gathering of white supremacists “45 minutes from Knoxville” in the “all-white Smoky Mountains.”

The seminar will feature a workshop on how to be a successful white supremacist led by famous Klansman David Duke, Don Black, and someone known as Horus the Avenger. The Sunday after the seminar, Duke will lead a nature walk (!) in the Smokies for a select group of white people who can afford a $75 registration fee for the seminar. But lunch is included.

The announcement on the Stormfront website says the seminar will not be about a meet-and-retreat topic, but a practical politics session on how to be a white supremacist “winner.” (Ummm...)

I can understand if our sarcasm is too dry for you personally, but if you read between the lines, I hope you'll realize the item wasn't exactly reverential to white supremacists—it was actually poking fun at the concept of them having an outdoors retreat to train themselves to be "winners." If you'll recall the last time the KKK came to Knoxville, local activists responded by publicly mocking them, which seems like an appropriate response to me.
