CBC- As the Ku Klux Klan rallied outside the South Carolina statehouse Saturday, the state's director of public safety pulled a man with a swastika on his shirt out of the hot afternoon sun.
Leroy Smith guided the man up a flight of stairs and into some shade while the Loyal White Knights of the KKK protested the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the Columbia, S.C. statehouse. The temperature on July 18 reached as high as 37 C.
The unidentified protester wore the insignia of the National Socialist Movement Party, one of the largest Neo-Nazi groups in the U.S. according to the Southern Poverty Law Centre.
Ahh, the old high road. Probably better known as the road less traveled. I got to say I have an endless amount of respect for this cop. I can't imagine helping someone who's sole purpose in life was not only to hate me, but to attempt to diminish my rights as a human being. If this were me, the best case scenario is that white supremacist gets dragged into an alley to die of a heat stroke. Worst case I am bludgeoning him with the handle of my pistol, watching him bleed out in the street, and claiming self defense. I am certainly not helping him to safety, no matter how good that makes me look in the eyes of the public. That's the difference though. If you have the discipline in you to be the good person, you really make the person that's in the wrong look more awful than they already are.
However, let's focus on this weak minded white supremacist that can barely survive a little heat. He had to just get his pink slip from the Klan, right? This fucking guy can't even go for a walk on a hot summer day without the help of a black man. I'm pretty sure it's in the chapter handbook that you can't let a black guy save your life. That's a devastating blow to the organization. Hell, their reputation would have been better off if he just died in the street from a little bit of sunlight. I mean, this is a person that despises an entire demographic based entirely on the color of their skin and it's questionable whether or not that is his biggest flaw. Irrationally hates a race of people and his kryptonite is warm weather. Got to say, that's a pretty awful look for racists. Really takes away their aura of intimidation. First their flag, the only thing they could still call their own, gets taken down and now their limp, helpless bodies are getting carried to the shade by someone that they continue to claim isn't equal. I guess he proved himself right. They aren't equals, this officer is actually a far better human being.
