DAILYKENN.com -- A man who self-identifies as a Klan leader is accused of driving his truck into a Black Lives Matter gathering in Virginia.
No serious injuries were reported, although the far-left mainstream media (FL-MSM) will likely tout the incident as evidence that white racism is running rampant throughout America.
The far-left is exploiting the tragic death of George Floyd to divide Americans, engender hate, and affect political change.
There is no apparent evidence that Rogers is affiliated with any legitimate Klan organization. Klan leaders are typically referred to as Imperial Wizards, not "presidents".

The Henrico Commonwealth's Attorney said a hate crime investigation was underway against the self-proclaimed president of the Virginia KKK.
Harry Rogers appeared in Henrico Court Monday morning where he agreed to receive a court-appointed attorney.
Rogers, 36, of Hanover, was formally charged with attempted malicious wounding (felony), destruction of property (felony), and assault and battery (misdemeanor) after police said he drove his pickup truck into a group of protesters Sunday in Lakeside.
The destruction of property charged stemmed from a bicycle damaged during the ordeal.
A Henrico judge denied Rogers' bond during Monday's hearing.
“Several witnesses reported that a vehicle revved their engine and drove through the protesters occupying the roadway,” a Henrico Police spokesperson said of the incident on Lakeside Avenue near Vale Street.
No one was seriously injured physically.
The person who called police was checked by rescue at the scene and refused further treatment.
The protest was part of the Black Lives Matter marches that have taken place around Virginia and the nation following the Memorial Day death of George Floyd.
In court Monday, the Henrico Commonwealth’s Attorney said Rogers told arresting officers he was the president of the Ku Klux Klan in Virginia and the highest-ranking member not imprisoned.
“The accused, by his own admission and by a cursory glance at social media, is an admitted leader of the Ku Klux Klan and a propagandist for Confederate ideology,” Henrico County Commonwealth’s Attorney Shannon Taylor said in a statement released after court. “We are investigating whether hate crimes charges are appropriate.”
