Joe Biden supporters in Tennessee have been targeted with Ku Klux Klan business cards in an apparent attempt at voter intimidation.

Speaking to local radio station WPLN News, Shelbyville resident Breana Green said she noticed the disturbance outside her neighbour’s home, who supports the Democratic presidential nominee.

According to Ms Green, a yard sign in support of Mr Biden was tampered with, whilst the yard outside her neighbour’s home had been littered with businesses cards that carried the Ku Klux Klan name.

The cards carried a statement threatening a second visit, and read: “You have been paid a social visit by the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. Don’t make the next visit a business call.”

Ms Green, a community activist and organiser, said that whilst her neighbours are white, the Klu Klux Klan material felt like intimidation.

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.

The cards described a “social visit” from the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and warned, “don’t make the next visit a business call.”

Green said her neighbor’s Biden-Harris yard sign was also destroyed and appeared to have been run over, WSMV reported.

Another resident reported that the same cards were left behind after someone swiped a Biden-Harris sign from a

Ku Klux Klan business cards describing a “social visit” from the hate group — and warning that the next one would be a “business call” — are appearing in the yards of Joe Biden supporters in Tennessee.

Shelbyville resident Breana Green told local outlet WSMV-TV that her friend’s home was targeted.

“We noticed that there was litter in the yard,” Green told the outlet. “I started to pick up the litter and noticed these business cards.”

About 20 Ku Klux Klan business cards bearing the threatening message were strewn across the yard, she said.

It appeared that whoever left the cards was provoked by the Biden-Harris sign in the yard, Green said.

“There [were] also tire marks in the yard which indicated the sign had been [run] over,” she told the outlet.

“I was really startled by it and also kind of scared,” Green told WPLN-FM, another local station.

“People in the community could be targeted as well. I just don’t think this should be something that we’re dealing with in 2020.”
