CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - The Ku Klux Klan plans to hold a pro-Confederate flag rally at South Carolina's capitol, where a statue of a former state governor who championed white supremacy was vandalized on Tuesday amid scrutiny of symbols associated with slavery.

The Loyal White Knights chapter of the Ku Klux Klan, based in Pelham, North Carolina, said it will rally at the South Carolina State House on July 18.

"We’re standing up for the Confederacy," James Spears, the chapter's "great titan," said on Tuesday.

He said speakers would address slavery, then the Klan will hold a cross-lighting, or cross-burning, ceremony on private property.

Haley, a Republican, said the group was not welcome in the state.

The Ku Klux Klan, a white supremacist group also known as the KKK, is known for its history of violence toward African-Americans.

Also on Tuesday, a statue of Ben Tillman, a segregationist former governor and U.S. senator who died in 1918, was defaced with what appeared to be red paint, authorities said.
