The below picture was taken during the 1924 Democratic Convention.
It was also known as “Klanbake.”
In Madison Square Garden, New York City, from June 24 to July 9, a dispute during came up revolving around an attempt by non-Klan delegates, led by Forney Johnston of Alabama, to condemn the organization for its violence in the Democratic Party’s platform.
But Klan delegates defeated the platform plank in a series of floor debates.
To celebrate, tens of thousands of hooded Klansmen rallied in a field in New Jersey, across the river from New York City. This event, known subsequently as the “Klanbake”, was also attended by hundreds of Klan delegates to the convention, who burned crosses, urged violence and intimidation against African Americans and Catholics, and attacked effigies of Smith.
The final vote was 546.15 for the Klan, 542.85 against it.
James O’Keefe and Project Veritas released their second video today on the radicals threatening violence for the Inauguration. This one deals with groups and activists that are acting through #DisruptJ20. As I understand it, somewhere between 75 and 100 protest groups are descending on DC. In this video, you get to see activists saying that they are going to block all checkpoints and ways to get in and out of the events surrounding the Inauguration. They will also be chaining trains to shut them down as well.
The video is well done and goes into detail on some of the players involved. These are radical communist groups and anarchists looking to create chaos and halt the Inauguration itself. We are now hearing of numerous alleged terrorist plans by these people. It is a good thing that DC police say they are prepared for all of this. There will also be 200,000 Bikers for Trump arriving who will stand with the police, the National Guard and the Secret Service to ensure order is kept and patriots are protected.

The leftists captured on film were allegedly targeting the Deploraball, a grass-roots event being held on Thursday at the National Press Club “to celebrate and honor … the passionate citizens who worked social media, knocked on doors, and endured harassement to support” Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.
On Friday, several news outlets reported that a group of left-wing activists from the “D.C. Anti-Fascist Coalition,” part of a broader effort called “#DisruptJ20” (for January 20th, the date of the inauguration) had been captured on tape discussing plans to crash the Deplorable, disrupt the parade at the inauguration, and target specific individuals.
Now, Project Veritas reveals just how the left-wing #DisruptJ20 activists may have been prepared to go. According to the video, they allegedly planned to place explosive “stink bomb” devices at the party and, if those failed, to trigger the fire sprinkler system, forcing attendees to evacuate outside in cold weather conditions.
One activist is also heard on the video to threaten the city government of Washington, D.C., and the police:
The message has to be, we do not recognize the city government either. If you try to close us down we will look for your house, we will burn it. We will physically fight the police if they try to steal one of our places. We will go to war and you will lose.
DC Police will not be able to run on their body cameras at inauguration day protests. Washington DC – All DC Police Officers have recently been outfitted with body cameras, but they will be in serious trouble if they have them on during the Inauguration Day protests.
NBC News 4’s Mark Segraves reported that it’s “against the law” for body cameras to be on while police are at protests unless the officer is required to take action. This means that officers can turn the cameras on when they want to arrest somebody, but they will be unable to capture what led up to the arrest.

Oregon rancher receives government request to survey his property – read his brilliant response!
So many people cave in and bend over backwards to accommodate the most ridiculous requests of federal and state governments, but this story is a reminder of how we all should respond when bureaucrats come knocking at our doors.
Recently, Oregon ranchers Larry and Amanda Anderson received a letter by the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife asking for permission to survey their land in order to track a nearly endangered species. The letter requested use of the landowners’ creek to document the amphibian life represented, specifically the foothill yellow-legged frog which is noted to have recently declined in population. If the Anderson’s agreed to give the department access, they were ensured as being responsible for “the conservation of this important species.”
But the Andersons weren’t exactly interested and noticed an opportunity to turn the tables on the request and apply a little “Golden Rule” justice, or at least doing unto the government as is so often done unto them. The Andersons constructed one of the best come-back letters of all time. The only way to truly appreciate it is to read it in its entirety:
