Residents of a Tennessee town are on edge after Ku Klux Klan propaganda was found scattered in the yards of homes with political signs expressing support for Joe Biden.
“I was really startled by it and also kind of scared,” Shelbyville resident Breana Green told WPLN News of the moment she noticed a neighbor’s yard littered with 20 “business cards” purporting to be from the white supremacist hate group.
