Police said three people were stabbed Saturday at a Ku Klux Klan gathering in Southern California.
An altercation between a group of KKK members and counter-protesters erupted at a Klan rally in Anaheim, with both sides involved in violent attacks, Sgt. Daron Wyatt with the Anaheim Police Department told The Associated Press.
Three people, all initially believed to be counter-protesters, were stabbed. One person was in custody.
Witnesses told the Los Angeles Times the Klansmen used the point of a flagpole as a weapon while fighting with counter-protesters.
Wyatt said a Klan member was stomped on by counter-protesters during another altercation. Three people were detained in that incident.

Violence instigated by the anit-protest group. Say what you will about the KKK but they received a permit and clearance for their rally which is protected speech. There was even notice from the police that it would take place. The men were jumped as soon as they got out of their cars by counter protesters.
Is this tolerance? Is this the high road? More signs of the contrived efforts to create racial hostilities.
I saw an interview from a professor who was there to observe for a book he was writing on hate groups. He tried to get in the middle of the confrontation and thought the KKK men would be killed by the anti-protesters.
Hate generating hate in return can create confusing results as to who was in the wrong.
