National protest coming to Florence, aimed at Muslims

FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) -

Global Rally for Humanity is planning a nationwide protest Saturday at noon. Locally, The Islamic Center of Northern Kentucky in Florence will be the site of one of those protests.

FOX19 NOW attempted to get a hold of the people holding the rally, but was unsuccessful.

The group's Facebook page contains the following message:

"On October 10th Farrakhan will be in DC preaching Nation of Islam's message of hatred for America, law enforcement, and random white people. He's instructed his minions to tear down our National Flag on the Mall, but we've got thousands of red-blooded American Patriots headed up there to defend it. We're all rallying up in OPEN CARRY STATES in support of local law enforcement and against anti-American TERRORISM both foreign and domestic. In Northern Kentucky our counter protest rally point is against ISLAMIC CENTER OF NORTHERN KENTUCKY in FLORENCE!! Please SHARE this event in groups and INVITE fellow Patriots, Veterans, Bikers, Rednecks and Good Ol' Boys!!"

Karen Dabdoub, with the Council for American-Islamic Relations said she has some concerns based on the chatter she’s heard on the internet.

“The organizers are urging people to come armed,” she said outside her home Friday night.

She told FOX19 she will not be attending the rally and the mosque in Florence be open Saturday.

Police said they have been monitoring the group’s website and plan to be at the rally to insure things don’t get out of control.
