Cops Outnumber KKK In Spirit Lake

Knights of the Ku Klux Klan held a membership eat, greet, and meet in Spirit Lake, Idaho Saturday. They asked for their supporters to "come out and meet the Aryan Nations" and to "get involved." 12 members of law enforcement from Spirit Lake Police, Kootenai County Sheriff's Office, Idaho State Police and U.S. Secret Service were all there to assist. There were no major disturbances except for a minor incident when a protestor unplugged the speaker's microphone. Eleven protestors and 6 KKK members were there and no new members came to take part/Shawn Chitniss, KREM2. More here.

Question: Why do Aryan Nations/KKK stage rallies in out-of-the-way places that attract few people? Media exposure? To let people know that they haven't totally gone away? What?
