The Man Who Took on the KKK with a Tuba and Won

Yes, they still have Klan rallies. This one was taking place outside the South Carolina State House, the place that finally voted to take down the hateful Confederate flag. The KKK had something to say about that, of course, and using their First Amendment rights were on hand this past Saturday to let everyone know how they felt.

Then a guy named Matt Buck moved in with his tuba, playing a slowed down version of Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries.” This is what happened.

The video has gone viral. Read the entire story at The Daily Beast.
