Scott Schwebke with the Orange County Register writes that “more than 300 people gathered peacefully Monday night in Pearson Park, the scene two days earlier of a bloody confrontation between the Ku Klux Klan and counterprotesters.
“They denounced the KKK as racist and said the organization has no place in Anaheim, dubbed by the mayor the “City of Kindness.”
“‘Fascists and hatemongers, we say go away,’ Rabbi Jonathan Klein, executive director of Los Angeles-based Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice, told the enthusiastic crowd. ‘Hate has no place in this community.’
“Mirvette Judeh, an Orange County real estate agent, told the crowd: ‘We are all here because we are against all forms of bigotry.’”
