At least two men were seen wearing pointy white hoods resembling those worn by the Ku Klux Klan and carrying a “Trump 2020” flag while confronting peaceful Black Lives Matter protesters in Fallon, Nevada.
The Reno Gazette Journal reports that the group of white men approached the protesters on Monday at around 6:30 p.m.
Video taken by protesters shows one of the hooded men holding a “Trump 2020: NO More Bullshit” flag.
“No Trump, No KKK, No Racist, Fascist USA!” the crowd chanted as officers spoke to the group of provocateurs.
The group of men can be seen turning around and leaving without incident as officers follow closely behind.
“They quickly took off the hoods but incurred anger from people in both the Black Lives Matter and Second Amendment groups before walking away,” the news outlet reported.
At the BLM protest in Fallon, two unidentified protesters dressed in white hats, similar to the Klu Klux Klan, showed up after demonstrators on both sides were dispersing. Both walked away from the demonstration but were followed by Fallon police.
