Confederate Flag-Waving Trump Supporter Praises KKK, Vows To Teach Hate
A woman wearing one of President Donald Trump's “Make America Great Again” signature hats waved a Confederate flag in a protest against Black Lives Matter in Branson, Missouri, while praising and swearing the Ku Klux Klan, to teach their grandchildren hate.
"I'm teaching them to hate all of you," said the woman identified by the Springfield News leader as Kathy Bennett on Sunday evening. "I will teach my grandchildren to hate all of you."
She spoke from the bed of a pickup truck, then climbed in to wave the flag, raise a fist, and shout: "KKK belief!"
The actor and musician Ice T was among the many who shared the woman's recordings:

The Mayor of Branson, Edd Akers, said on Facebook that the city "does not tolerate hate speech".
The demonstrators demonstrated in front of a shop called Dixie Outfitters that sells confederate-themed goods.
The Kansas City Star said the store was owned by Anna and Nathan Robb. Nathan Robb, the newspaper says, is the son of KKK leader Thomas Robb.
The news leader said in 2015 that Nathan Robb once tried to take over a highway on behalf of the KKK. At the time, Anna Robb told the newspaper that she herself had participated in clan events "years ago", but that "nothing even shows up".
She said they hadn't spoken to the older Robb in years.
