In response to my latest column, the Ku Klux Klan has responded via the Canada Free Press. Bill O'Reilly, eat your heart out.
It is about time someone cut through the media bias, historical re-writes and propaganda, we are not allowed to do this in U.S. anymore we MUST be politically correct.

The Klan, a Limited Liability Corporation?
Who woulda thunk it?
Baxley's laconic response is worthy of the Spartans of the Classical Period. No one has ever improved on it.
Bob Parks is a good guy, but his grasp on history isn't too strong.
The USA not only wasn't the first, it was very nearly the last western nation to formally outlaw slavery. I believe only Cuba (a Spanish colony at the time) and Brazil still held black slaves after 1865.
Eastern and Middle Eastern countries continued the practice a lot longer. Indeed, some pracice it today.
Also, I assume he meant "formally," not "formerly."
Bob, you’re awesome! So glad we have folks like you for neighbors! Great article.
They restructured after a lawsuit if I am not mistaken. In fact, I believe they don’t actually have a national organization because of the liability.
An LLC is a Company, not a Corporation.
That was well said on your part, Bob. Republicans did not force the Klan to be racist any more than early feminists were forced to join the Klan in such large numbers. [For those who are unaware of the rest of the story, the KKK supported the 19th Amendment.]
Eff the Klan.
And that response would be.....?
Bwahahha!! Too much!!
As attorney general, Baxley was made famous for his most prestigious case against the Ku Klux Klan, his 1977 prosecution of Robert Chambliss for the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in September 1963.
"We know who did it," Alabama Atty. Baxley said Wednesday as he confirmed that he has reopened the investigation of a church bombing that killed four young black girls in Birmingham in 1963. Baxley said in an interview with Birmingham radio station that the list of suspects had been narrowed down, but he declined to predict if or when arrests would be made. He said premature published reports about the investigation might have hurt. "There are some people in Jefferson County who ought to be pretty nervous right now," Baxley said in an earlier telephone interview.
The Sunday, Sept. 15, 1963, dynamite blast at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church occurred during the time of racial demonstrations led by the late Martin Luther King. Twenty-three other people in the church were hurt and debris was scattered for blocks.Baxley later confirmed that he had talked to Rowe, and he was cooperative, "But we were working on this thing long before that. We had a lot of stuff already. Rowe was just another person we interviewed."He said Rowe didn't give him a list of names as such, "but nine is too many."''
Condoleezza Rice was a friend of the little girls.
The tragedy sickened America and was an important factor in destroying white resistance to ending racial segregation.
As everyone knows, it was racially motivated. The little girls were black. Baxley was white.
Baxley--of course--was sickened, horrified, and outraged by this incident--as were all decent people everywhere--and it is my understanding that the fact that the investigation had been closed without finding and prosecuting the killers was a major reason for Baxley's wanting to become Alabama Attorney General.
His investigation eventually led to prosecution and conviction.
Upon reopening the investigation, Baxley received a threatening letter from the Ku Klux Klan that included insults and a death threat.
This was Baxleys reply--under the official letterhead of the State of Alabama:
OFFICIAL LETTERHEAD OF THE STATE OF ALABAMAI do not customarily use such language. However, considering the circumstances and those to whom the response was directed, it could not be more suitable.
My response to your letter of February 19, 1976 is - kiss my ass.Sincerely,
State of Alabama
Therewith, Baxley became one of my heroes. He still is.
Uh, you just posted to him, so you can drop the third person.
Was he the guy that responded to a letter from the KKK that said “kiss my (backside)”?
