At least four people were wounded, one critically, when Ku Klux Klan members and counter-protesters came to blows in Anaheim, California. Witnesses say a peaceful counter-protest had been underway for hours before KKK members arrived for a planned rally of their own. According to witnesses, about 50 counter-protesters began yelling and throwing sticks at some of the Klansmen as they arrived, then chased the KKK members down the block. The person most seriously wounded, a counter-protester, was allegedly stabbed by a Klan member with a flagpole. The victim was hospitalized in critical condition. Thirteen people have been arrested. The KKK's former leader David Duke recently made headlines when he said he backed Donald Trump for president. Trump has said that he rejects that endorsement.
