The Ku Klux Klan bought a billboard near the bridge at Selma where Obama spoke today

Now you would have thought that the Ku Klux Klan would have erected something spectacularly offensive when they bought the billboard sign near the Selma bridge, but they just posted this rather innocuous greeting:

bedford falls kkk

Some people still find it offensive, but should the South not be allowed to advertise it’s historical sites?

More from New York Daily News:

Within sight of the bridge where President Obama will commemorate the 1965 Bloody Sunday march is a billboard set up by a group dedicated to honoring Ku Klux Klan founder Nathan Bedford Forrest.

The sign, set up in recent days, invites visitors to see “Selma’s War Between The States Historic Sites.” But it also features a picture of the Confederate flag and an image of Forrest, who was also a Confederate general.

Beside Forrest’s picture is a quote adopted by his men: “Keep the skeer on ’em.”

In a bizarre twist, the other side of the billboard — a straight shot and about a half-mile east of the Edmund Pettus Bridge — contains a welcome message to President Obama.

That’s weird.
