A Virginia newspaper is under fire by residents of Westmoreland County after publishing a Ku Klux Klan recruitment flyer on its front page.
The Westmoreland News, located in Montross, recently published a story about the KKK flyers being left in driveways in Colonial Beach. The article quotes the local police chief speaking out against the flyers, which included racist and anti-Semitic language.
The problem? Along with the article, the paper published a large image of the flyer, which appeared next to the article on the front page. Residents are outraged, saying the page’s design looks like an advertisement for the KKK.
"It was disgraceful. Shameful," one Westmoreland County resident named Veronica, who wished to not give her last name, said. "The KKK is equivalent to Isis. One is domestic terrorists and the other is just terrorists. It's not right and it shouldn't have been done."
