We’d seen plenty of unsubstantiated tweets about voter fraud in Nevada, but reports of men in Ku Klux Klan garb, carrying signs identifying them as members of the New England Police Benevolent Police Association? It seems that tip was called in by Nevada State Senator Aaron D. Ford.

Seeing men walking around in Klan outfits would make one’s blood boil. Still, we just can’t help but notice what so many others have; either it’s a trick of the lighting, or these two Klan members are black, judging by their hands.


For what it’s worth, the New York Daily News — not exactly a pro-Trump publication — identified the Klansmen as members of the New England Police Benevolent Police Association, “a controversial group that endorsed Trump in December.”

The group also boycotted President Obama’s Labor Day event in Boston to draw attention to his lack of support of law enforcement, and as shown in this photo from the Boston Globe, its members are really, really, white.
