This story is rather old, but so is the saying “that’s the pot calling the kettle black.”  On Memorial Day 2011, members of the Westboro Baptist Church protested a ceremony lead by President Obama to honor fallen soldiers at the Arlington National Cemetery.  The protesters were met by a group of counter-protesters which included several members of the Klu Klux Klan.

Dennis LaBonte, a military veteran and former “imperial wizard” of a KKK chapter, spoke with a CNN reporter about the Klan’s view on the Westboro Baptist Church.  In the interview LaBonte said that his group had came in support of the troops and that he is not a “hate-monger” and that he “thinks that it’s an absolute shame that [The WBC] show up and disrupt people’s funerals.”

The Westboro Baptist Church responded to these comments by saying the KKK “have no moral authority on anything.  The Bible doesn’t say anywhere that it’s an abomination to be born of a certain gender or race.”
