A Massachusetts woman, dubbed “Racist KKKaren” by some Twitter users, was caught on camera admitting that she is a “KKK racist” while participating in what appears to be a poorly attended “Back the Blue” rally.
The video, which reportedly took place in Halifax, Massachusetts, was recorded and shared by TikTok user @dillyonce on Sunday.
In the video, a white woman identified by @dillyonce as Cara Cahill Lydon is seen standing with a group of mostly unmasked rally participants. One of them was seen holding a sign reading: “MA Backs the Blue.”
One of @dillyonce’s fellow counter-protesters is seen holding a flag combining the classic LGBTQ rainbow and the trans pride flag. A Black Lives Matter flag is also seen flying atop the dual pride flag.
Lydon is attempting to engage with @dillyonce, a Black woman, at the start of the video.
Lydon asks where the group’s “Black friends” are.
“You’re a token Black,” Lydon tells @dillyonce.
“Yes, I’m a racist now. I’m a racist,” she admits while smugly grinning.
“I’m a KKK racist,” she shouts after @dillyonce repeatedly tries in vain to have a productive conversation with her.
“Get the fuck out of my face,” she tells @dillyonce, holding her phone up like a shield. “You love using your Blackness.”
Lydon appears to have since deleted her Facebook.
