Video: Rep. Andy Dulin: “I am completely against the Klan, but..."

Last August, Mecklenburg County Representative Andy Dulin (R-104) participated in a panel discussion of white supremacy and racism on an episode of the Charlotte-based FlashPoint following last year’s white supremacist riot and death of a counter-protester in Charlottesville, VA.

“I am completely against the Klan, but if you just leave those knuckleheads alone maybe they’d go away,” said Dulin.

Dulin’s request that we ignore the “knuckleheads” in the KKK completely minimizes the very real threats of white supremacy that became clear in Charlottesville.
