Government shutdown shuts down planned KKK rally

(JTA) — The federal government shutdown has forced the cancellation of a planned Ku Klux Klan rally at the site of the battle of Gettysburg.

The Maryland-based Confederate White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan had a permit for an Oct. 5 demonstration at the Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania. Park officials, however, have rescinded all special events permits due to the government shutdown, NBC’s Philadelphia affiliate reported. 

As a result of the shutdown, all national parks are closed.
