KKK Leader Misses His Own Trump Victory Parade

The leader of a Ku Klux Klan branch missed his own Donald Trump victory parade because he was in a jail cell, arrested after a planning meeting descended into violence.

Dozens of KKK members drove through rural North Carolina on Saturday, giving Nazi salutes and shouting: 'White power.'
The event attracted nationwide publicity after details were posted online announcing it as a celebration of Mr Trump's victory.
However, its organizer, Chris Barker, 37, Imperial Wizard of the Loyal White Nights in North Carolina, was not present after he was arrested in connection with a stabbing.

Michael Welch, sheriff of Caswell County, said Barker was one of two men detained after a stabbing victim was dumped in the lobby of his office complex in the early hours of Saturday morning.
'The victim Richard Dillon told investigators that he had been at the residence of Christopher Eugene Barker due to a Ku Klux Klan meeting when the altercation took place,' he said.

A police officer told the Burlington Times News that Barker had urged on William Hagen, 50, of Indiana, in the attack and had kicked the victim as he fell to the ground at his home.
