GETTYSBURG, Pa., June 30 (UPI) -- The Traditional Rebel Knights of the Ku Klux Klan held a rally in Gettysburg, Pa., on Saturday, promoting the ideals of white supremacy and attempting to recruit new members.

"We are taking back this land," a Klansman warned local reporters.

"Anyone stands in our way, they're going in the ground."

"The only solution is an all-white revolution," said another member.

The Maryland-based branch of the hate group held the rally to protest black on white violence, President Obama, illegal immigration, LGBT rights and Jewish people.

The group mainly spoke to protest observes -- individuals who were not there to support the Klan, but gawk and publicly condemn the organization's philosophies.

Protest observers told Klansmen they were "disgraceful" and an "embarrassment to humans."

"We remember what you look like everybody," one protester threatened Klan supporters.
