Clowns Foil Joint KKK/Neo-Nazi Rally

Today in Humanity Might Actually Be OK News, we bring you the coolest video we’ve seen all day. In summary: Groups representing the Neo-Nazi National Socialists and the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan decided to hold a joint rally near Charlotte, North Carolina last week, because why the hell not? Two peas in a pod, right?

These guys probably expected some people to yell at them, call them bigots, throw a couple of sticks and a lot of frowns…you know, the usual side effects of a public gathering. But this day found them surprised by what we can only call a crowdsourced PR stunt: a group of locals arrived to interrupt the groups’ anti-immigrant rants with horns and big red noses. That’s right, they dressed as clowns. The message was clear: we don’t take you seriously. As one protester put it: “We’re dressed like clowns and you’re the ones that look funny.” And that’s just about all that need be said.
