3 fans wear KKK hoods at hockey game: Ku Klux Klan hood-wearers identified (Photos)
http://www.examiner.com ^ | february 24, 2013 | Bruce Baker

Posted on 02/24/2013 9:00:18 AM PST by lowbridge

Three fans wearing KKK hoods at a North Dakota high school hockey game Friday were identified. After a photo of the trio donning Ku Klux Klan-style hoods and robes went viral on Twitter and caused public outrage over the picture, an investigation. While the names have not been released, many others know who the people were.

Citing a report on Feb. 23 from Fox News, the principal from Red River High School released a statement about the incident that has spread like wildfire on the Internet, social media and other news outlets.

The official, who refused to go on camera, said the fans who wore the KKK hoods at the high school game are being dealt with. However, there is no mention of what action is or will be taken as a result of the "inappropriate attire."

While there is little disagreement that the image is not a photo-shop and three people actually wore clothing that caused uproar at the game; there is a conflict in terms of how long the Klan hoods were worn.

The principal said the three "students" entered Red River's seating area wearing all-white attire like many other attendees, but donned the hoods and robes for "less than a minute" after the school scored its first goal.

Stupid stunt but not illegal.

Let the school take actions they deep appropriate and call it good.

If they had worn "gay pride" or "Che Guevara" shirts would anyone have noticed? Agree or disagree with the KKK, LGBT, NAACP, etc. big deal. But don't selectively call-out people on expressing themselves. Here's a hint lib-lurkers, that's not celebrating diversity, that's not being "all inclusive" - you're showing your hypocritical colors.

I thought they were some offshoot muslim sect of women wearing modified hijabs or whatever they’re called. Or dunce caps with face coverings.

When I lived in MS in the mid to late 70’s, every once in a while the klan would have membership drives downtown and it would raise the hair on the back of my neck. Spooky demokkkrats all dressed in white robes and dunce caps. I knew where the field was where they did their ceremonies too. Permanent steel cross with propane hook up. It wasn’t that long ago in the scheme of things.

“While the practice of wearing all-white dates back nearly three decades, the wearing of white supremacist attire does not represent the game of hockey. “

That there is an example of some great investigative journalism.

If they were illegal aliens, we’d be told that they were also “honor students”. Note to self. Never wear a bedsheet with a pillow case hat to a high school hockey game. People will become “outraged” and go viral on you.

Yeah, as hundreds of thousands who get gang tattoos like "Brown Pride", flashing gang signs and wearing gang colors while shooting and killing hundreds of people each year is cool, so there is no need for outrage or official comment.

The official, who refused to go on camera, said the fans who wore the KKK hoods at the high school game are being dealt with.

As discusted with their actions as I am, I would have been proud of them if they had pulled this stunt with a few friends with the black panther uniforms on, a few of those chairman Mao PJ’s on, a few Chi Shirts. Then they could have pulled a fast one on the “upset” folks, by asking them if they noticed the other offensive dress of the ohter studnets. Missed the perfect set up.

The 1920’s KKK was everywhere like that women’s meeting in New Jersey that Margaret Sanger spoke to.

Indiana was a Klan state, they were active in my part of Pennsylvania as well.

The 1920’s Klan opposed the “evils” real or imagined of the Roman Catholic Church and Catholics of Southern and Eastern European descent like Al Capone.

Down in Alabama a lawyer named Hugo Black helped the KKK back then. FDR appointed him to the Supreme Court.

In 1947 Black wrote the ruling in the Everson case against public school resources being used to help Catholic schools.

His decision introduced the phrase “separation of church and state” into modern jurisprudence. Lawyers and judges who followed him succeeded in using it to rewrite the original meaning of the First Amendment.

As far as I know the Black Panther’s history doesn’t include rousing people out of their houses in the middle of the night, burning people out of said houses down and shooting the people as they attempted to flee the flames. The Black Panthers also did not go around lynching people as the KKK was known to do.

They were just wearing a different kind of hoodie.

How is it any different than the black power thugs that wear berets and camo and actually intimidate voters at polling places? How is it any different from the hoodies the black rob-mobs wear when they are rampaging through stores and taking everything not nailed down?

These guys took nothing and threatened nobody. they’re idiots but they did far less than what blacks are getting away with today on the rest of society.

* Jamil Abdullah al-Amin aka H. Rap Brown : who before converting to Islam was known as H. Rap Brown, one of the founders of the Black Panther movement. Al-Amin was convicted earlier this year of killing a Georgia sheriff's deputy trying to serve him with a summons. Serving life in prison. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/715683/posts ****** An early president of the executive board of the AMC was Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rap Brown, who was twice on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list. As a 1960s radical, Brown threatened to assassinate Lady Bird Johnson when she was first lady of the United States. He now is serving a life sentence in a Georgia prison for the 2000 murder of Fulton County Sheriff's Deputy Ricky Kinchen. -"Undermining war on terror : Muslim groups weakening fed laws under guise of protecting civil liberties," World Net Daily, March 10, 2003

1960s : (SOME BLACK PANTHERS MEMBERS ON TRIAL ESCAPE BY TAKING THE JUDGE HOSTAGE-- See ANGELA DAVIS, WEATHER UNDERGROUND) ...A lot of folks here have never heard of Angela Davis: an avowed communist,and member of the Black Panthers. In the late 60's, she was charged with complicity,after a group of Panthers,who were on trial,escaped from court by taking the judge hostage at gunpoint.(As memory serves,they taped the barrel of a shotgun to his head or neck.) The judge was killed,along with 2 others-one of whom was one of the escapees. The guns used were traced back to Angela Davis,and she "went to earth",but was captured in NYC in 1970 (?). She was found not guilty,made a trip to Russia to thank her avid supporters there,then moved (where else ?) to California,where she became a college professor (!)

FEBRUARY 17, 1968 : (FUTURE DEM CONGRESSMAN RON DELLUMS DELIVERS SPEECH AT PARTY FOR BLACK PANTHER "MINISTER OF DEFENSE" COPKILLER HUEY NEWTON) Ronald V. Dellums delivered the keynote address at a birthday party for Black Panther Minister of Defense Huey Newton, who had been convicted of killing a policeman. ******************* On February 17, 1968, Dellums delivered the keynote address at a birthday party for Black Panther Minister of Defense Huey Newton, who had been convicted of killing a policeman. The next year, 348 Panthers were arrested for such serious crimes as murder, armed robbery, rape, bank robbery, and burglary. Party leaders openly called for the assassination of President Richard Nixon, and the FBI determined the Panthers to be "the most notorious and dangerous of current militant groups." But the Panthers’ appalling record of violence did not cause Dellums to turn his back on them. During his 1970 campaign for Congress Dellums openly endorsed the Panthers. . . .During his election campaign of 1970, Dellums held on to his regular supporters and also acquired new ones, including Communist Jessica Milford, Sargent Shriver of the Kennedy dynasty, and the AFL-CIO’s hatchet-crew, the Committee on Political Education (COPE). . .Dellums has been affiliated with the ultra-leftist Soledad Brothers Defense Committee; the ultra-leftist National Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam; the ultra-leftist Community for New Politics in Berkeley; the ultra-leftist National Peace Action Coalition. He endorsed the Hanoi-inspired People’s Peace Treaty. Dellums was a founding member, along with labor-agitator Cesar Chavez, of the Tom Hayden and "Hanoi Jane" Fonda Campaign for Economic Democracy (CED). CED was funded with taxpayer money via VISTA grants to train "community" organizers, the New Left’s expansionist vehicle emanating from the teachings of Saul Alinsky, fund raiser for the Communists’ International Brigade in the Spanish Civil War. . .In August 1977 the liberal publication Mother Jones reported that for "the first time in more than a century, a dues-paying socialist is also a member of the U.S. Congress.

"On May 1st, May Day [1969], the day of the gigantic Free Huey [NEWTON?] rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo. Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him. The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology." To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp." ------- REVOLUTIONARY HEROES , May 11, 1969, [1960s] Black Panther Party [BPP] Archives Source: Maoist Internationist Movement, http://www.etext.org/Politics/MIM/bpp/index.html

As I recall the Black Panthers tortured their bookkeeper, Betty Van Patter, to death. I'm sure it wasn't their first time. One of the founders , Newton, beat a black hooker to death. Of course, murders of fellow blacks would be summed as as normal crime and not necessarily linked to the group.

They are as nothing compared to the New Black Panthers, or Jamaat ul Fuqra, though.

In a Chicago suburban Jo-Ann fabric store, I was rounding the aisle end-cap.

Rounding the end-cap from the next aisle were three muslim women in full hooded regalia with the thin slits for the eyes.

We met in the middle abruptly, face-to-face.....and it scared the living hell out of me.

Are you stupid? You seem to be supporting these assholes or attempting to minimize their extreme violent racism.

Lets get current. From the 1960s to the late 1970s these violent racist tortured people, murdered lots of police officers and assaulted people. Shooting innocent people to death is better than hanging them?

The Black Panthers were down here in my neck of the woods last year...with Al Sharpton and all the other Black Racists handing out “Wanted Dead or Alive” posters calling for the lynching of George Zimmerman.

And don’t use the liberal excuse “New Black Panthers are not the Black Panthers”. The Black Panthers have not yet sued the New BP for using their name.

The Black Panthers preach and carry out violence and racial hatred. The Black Panthers are nothing more than the Black Ku Klux Klan
