  • Anti-Freedom of expression

    People have a right (under U.S constitutional laws) to express themselves. Merely assembling is allowed according to the U.S constitution. 'Hate Speech' is merely a vice that people use to imply that what the KKK are doing is illegal, which it is not. The constitution protects the KKK because they are doing nothing wrong. The constitution is there to protect minority groups (like the KKK) because unpopular ideas are often 'good' (women's rights, the outlawing of slavery). There is no way to stop the 'bad' ideas without stopping the 'good' ones. In accordance to the constitution, the KKK are assembling legally, and this fact is assurance that the constitution is being upheld.

  • First Amendment Right.

    Unless you plan to ban the blm, and other such as well, there is no legal reason to infringe on their rights. You simply dont have the right to limit the rights of others. Seriously. You can have your oppinion, just as they can have and use their rights as well.

  • Singling out a group based on a public opinion takes a very complicated document requiring intricate analyses and hands to the determination of the ignorant

    I am not saying that those who oppose allowing the KKK, or for that matter the gay and lesbian supporters, or black panthers, or any other group which causes another group discomfort are ignorant in the sense they are stupid. However, the interpretation of the Constitution is complex and application of the 1st Amendment, moreover not just speech, as is often the term invoked but freedom of assembly, Religion, and others are also invoked. I do not personally agree with all the view points of the KKK, nor the other groups mentioned, but that does not mean I should impose my desire not to be uncomfortable on them to the extent they are eliminated. We migrated to this country to escape the dictatorial control of King George. Now, I read so many people wish to impose their beliefs onto minority groups (yes, with 5000 members the KKK is a minority group) because they simply don’t like or disagree with their tenants. Just as with the Billion Muslims, only a percentage of this group are violent. I do not believe we should burn the Bill of Rights to stop an individual group from their right to peaceably assemble any more than we should destroy mosques or churches because we hate Muslims or are atheists. Before we condemn, we should consider groups or beliefs we foster or hold dear that might be endangered if we embark on a judgmental course that allows for an "ends justifies the means" type attitude. I a just a simple soldier but hope that the danger I have placed myself in to allow you folks to pontificate here and my thoughts gives you cause to pause in your words and that my friends who did not come back, who truly believed in freedom - every American's freedom, was not lost in vain because those of you who did not make that sacrifice do not happen to like one group or another simply do not understand the foundations of freedom on which our country was built.

  • Freedom of speech

    The first amendment provides freedom of religion, speech, and the press. If the government could simply decide which voices get to be heard and peaceably assembled and which do not get that privilege, than our freedom of speech would be compromised. We all benefit from having a free society where all ideas may be expressed.

  • It's our right, isn't it?

    My school blocked all KKK related websites, however the Neo Nazi websites are at full capacity. As an Atheist, I sympathize with some hate groups, including the KKK. I don't understand why it's so frowned upon to not like someone. Of course most people find it morally wrong, but you've got to look past morals some times.

  • Are we not allowed to state our opinion's and beliefs?

    I am an atheist, I believe that people should not be judged or discriminated by their race and be able to believe in what they chose, whether it is their opinion or others. The kkk may have done some terrible things in the past but shouldn't they be able to preach what they believe in like any other person even if their idea of white being superior is not what most other people in the world believe in today. By saying that they can't assemble because of their opinion when why should you be able to in what you believe in.

  • Taking away there right to assemble is opening up a Pandora's box in which the law can be abused.

    Let's reverse things a bit. Let's say someone from a Christian church killed someone saying it was in the name of the church. Should the whole church have it's rights to assemble revoked, because of the actions of one member?

    You can't punish the whole, because of what the minority did. It not only goes against the whole freedom of speech thing, but saying ....Well some members are violent. Unless the whole group encouraged violence, taking away there right to assemble, is punishment w/o due process.

    And once you open this door, saying some opinions and some speech should be banned, you're opening the door for the government to turn the US into China.

  • Under watch though

    The KKK is worse than Nazis or other fascist groups. The KKK (unlike the neo-Nazis and other neo-fascist groups who protest peacefully) has a history of murder and lynchings. So I do believe they should spout their hatred, but under watched up, because unwatched, the KKK will go and lynch people to enforce their pro-Germanic views.

  • Even the wrong have the right to a voice

    While i font agree with them at all, or their beliefs, they have the constitutional right to assemble in public as long as it is with in a peaceful manner, and are subject to any and all aspects of the law should they become unruly. Again, i don't agree with them, im not racist at all, but everyone has the right to freedom of speech.

  • Radical Beliefs do Not Mean Denial of Speech

    Just because a belief is not popular does not mean it cannot be expressed. Every person and group is entitled to express their own opinions however they chose. Even if a person or group is widely unpopular, it is their right to assemble and promote their beliefs. If people feel so strongly that they are wrong or otherwise misguided, they can protest too, sharing their own two cents (counter protest, as it were). Just as they are entitled to counter protest, groups like the KKK are allowed to express their opinions.

  • Sure they can,

    just as long as the KKKKK (Kill the KKK Klub) can publicly assemble as well. The KKK is an organization that openly practices threatening the lives of other people. Allowing the KKK to publicly assemble would be like allowing terrorists to have a craft fair to raise money for more explosives.

  • No, it should be outlawed.

    While the KKK might argue that freedom of assembly is a guaranteed right, hate crimes are illegal. The history of the KKK is the understated definition of "hate crimes". They have committed documented murder and rape and they, therefore, should not be allowed to assemble anywhere in America. The fact that this question is even arising today is proof to those that argue the opposite; that racism exists in the United States.

  • Unless they change

    their rituals and traditions from murdering, killing, and discriminating, and then go on to announce their name as the "Kute Kids Klub", than no. Freedom of speech is one thing, but public KKK assemblies are something completely different. If you and a couple buddies want to talk about your beliefs, than go ahead. But when a bunch of like minded people rally together for a cause like this, there is almost inevitably going to be violence.

  • Dont even think about ignorantly using the word assemble

    Yes you're right that they are sadly allowed to attack people by "verbally expressing themselves." However the constitution clearly states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." Notice the word PEACEABLY comes before the word assemble.

    Therefore how can you justify the discriminatory and terrorist actions if the Ku Klux Klan by simply spitting out the word assembly?!

    Is hunting down blacks and lynching them to ground, peaceful? Is attacking and assaulting immigrants, peaceful? Is infringing the religious rights of others by persecution, peaceful? If you truly had morals you would say NO!

    So you can have all the opinions in HW the world about this organization for all I care. But do not defend the abomination that is the Ku Klux Klan by ignorantly misinterpreting the constitution's use of the world assembly.

    Oh and by the way, YOU JUST GOT SERVED BY A KID!

    Maybe they are allowed to attack people by verbally expressing themselves.

  • Dont you dare say the constitution protects their assembly

    Yes you're right that they are sadly allowed to attack others by verbally expressing themselves. However the constitution clearly states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

  • It is unconstitutional at all costs

    The first amendment of the constitution states,"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." Notice the word PEACEABLY comes before the word assemble.

  • It is unconstitutional at all costs

    Amendment 1 of the Constitution clearly states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

    Notice the word PEACEABLY comes before assemble. How can anyone justify the discriminatory and terrorist actions of the Ku Klux Klan with the first amendment? Especially with the part that talks about peaceful assembly! Yes, it may be so that they are protected under the freedom of speech portion, meaning that their hurtful and cruel words are legal.
    However, how in the world can any of you say that they are peacefully assembling. Is hunting down millions of blacks and lynching them to ground peaceful? Is committing arson and burning down other's property peaceful? Is raiding the streets hunting down and assaulting immigrants peaceful? Is purposely infringing the reigous rights of others peaceful? NO!

    You may have all the opinions in the world about this organization. But do not defend the abomination that is the Ku Klux Klan by indicating that their not at all peaceful assembly, is legal.
