The leader of a Ku Klux Klan group in North Carolina admitted that he was “glad” a woman died after being run over by a white supremacist.
On Monday night, after Heather Heyer was killed by James Allen Fields Jr. after Fields allegedly drove into the group of counter protesters Heyer was part of, injuring almost 20 others in the process, Justin Moore, the Grand Dragon for the Loyal White Knights of Ku Klux Klan, said that he was “glad” she died.
“I’m sorta glad that them people got hit and I’m glad that girl died,” Moore said in a voicemail to WBTV. “They were a bunch of Communists out there protesting against somebody’s freedom of speech, so it doesn’t bother me that they got hurt at all.”
“I think we’re going to see more stuff like this happening at white nationalist events,” Moore warned.
Some members of the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan were in Charlottesville for the “Unite the Right” rally protesting the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
“We were out there and I seen a lot of Communist flags and anti-fascist and we’re going to see more stuff like this,” Moore said. “White people are getting fed up with the double standard setup in America today by the controlled press.”
“We should have been able to go out there and have our protest and it should have been peaceful but it’s the anti-fascist and the communists…continuing to try and stop us,” he continued. “So I think there will be more violence like this in the future to come.”
Imperial Wizard Chris Barker and Amanda Baker appeared on an interview with WBTV alongside Moore on Tuesday as well.
“When a couple of them die, it doesn’t bother us,” Imperial Wizard Barker said. “They’re always attacking and messing with our rallies.”
Barker went on to blame the police for the violence in Charlottesville.
“They should have never the anti-fascist … that’s like putting the Klan and the Black Panthers in a room together,” Barker said. “We’re gonna try to kill each other. The police should have known the anti-fascist is the sworn enemy of any white separatist.”
Amanda Barker added that she “hates what happened in Charlottesville, with the hitting and people attacking people.”
And yet in a recorded message played when someone calls their headquarters, the group praises Fields’ actions.
“Nothing makes us more proud at the KKK than we see white patriots such as James Fields Jr, age 20, taking his car and running over nine communist anti-fascist, killing one (expletive)-lover named Heather Heyer,” the recorded message says. “James Fields hail victory. It’s men like you that have made the great white race strong and will be strong again.”
