American Hero Gives KKK The Soundtrack It Deserves

Full of hot air.

 

The KKK staged a rally in Columbia, South Carolina, on Saturday to demonstrate their support for the Confederate flag.

While many decried the march as little more than an obsolete group tooting their own horn, that honor actually goes to Columbia resident Matt Buck, who tooted a sousaphone, specifically.

As the KKK walked to the South Carolina Statehouse, Buck provided the marchers with a delightfully, deliberately clumsy soundtrack on the tuba-like brass instrument, artfully trolling the group with Wagner’s “Ride of The Valkyries.”

"I didn't really know how to show my opposition, so that was my way of doing it," Buck told the Charleston City Paper. He says the musical backdrop was definitely a success. "My goal was to embarrass them, and I think I did a little bit."

Because nothing says "take me seriously" quite like a bumbling brass accompaniment.
