Let me tell you something, I used to live in Philly. Let me tell you something else, I learned more in my time in Philly (where I had a job working on the streets of North Philly and speaking in drug treatment programs all over town) then in decades elsewhere. Tough town, not an easy town by any means, a no nonsense sort of place. Philly is a city full of neighborhoods, with different ethnic groups, different racial groupings, good guys and bad, racists and anti-racists. I'll tell you what though, if I were the damn Ku Klux Klan, I would keep my skinny (or fat) white ass out of town. I know some folks who live there and they are not the sort to sit idly by when Kluxers gather on their turf.
And so it came to pass, that one day a pack of white supremacist yahoos got it in their heads that they could stroll into my friends town and preach their garbage. They thought they could slink in secretly. They thought wrong.
The following is from my pals at One People's Project. After that is a piece from ANTIFA PHILADELPHIA.
As we used to say, "dig it."
Or, how the longest day of the year became the longest day of the lives of any hatemonger in the Tacony section of Philadelphia. A few Klan groups thought they could hold a clandestine rally in Philly today, and unfortunately for them, we found out, and not only a Klan group operating in Philly was exposed, Keystone State "Skinheads" got the treatment as well since they are in this neighborhood too! Hey Fascist scumbags! We know how to do this! Don't test us! Links to more pics and other reports are being added as they are published.
