KKK, Crips Gang Members Team Up To Stop Memphis KKK Rally
CBS Houston ^ | March 1, 2013 | Cicely Mitchell

Posted on 03/03/2013 3:01:18 PM PST by JerseyanExile

If you are looking for a story that travels to the realms of disbelief, then this is the story that does so. It appears that a group of Memphis, Tennessee Ku Klux Klan members and the Grape Street Crips are teaming up to stop an upcoming KKK rally.

Dajuan Horton, a Crip Gang member who lives in Memphis apparently heard of the rally happening. Being totally and unequivocally against it, he decided to work on a rally to combat the coming KKK rally. He told a local news station that instead of meeting the opposing rally members with violence, he is offering a non-violent stand against them: “The first thing I was thinking was the largest rally you’ve even seen and you’re telling us about it,” he said. “You’re sending the first blow, we’re not throwing blows we’re going to dodge that one and hug you.”

Horton also made a video and posted it on YouTube; about his opposition of the rally. That video caught the attention of Bradley Jenkins, the Imperial Wizard for the United Klan of America. Jenkins watched Horton’s video and offered to stand with Horton as he works to repel the impending rally: “We will stand resolute with the citizens of Memphis and this young man and anyone in town, no matter what color they be, because hate and racism has no place,” Jenkins said. According to Jenkins, the KKK members who are proposing a rally at the end of March, are not true members of The Ku Klux Klan.

I think it’s time that the Democratic Party apologize to the Afro-American community for establishing the KKK and finally once and for all denounce their racist heritage. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi should call for all Democrats to bring their Klan robes do the steps of Congress and burn them in a show of repentance.

I'll try to explain but I don't know that it will help.

An aquaintence of mine, actually a pretty good friend, was a leader of the local KKK. Mostly made up of union workers, un-employed drug dealers and disaffected youth. In other words, Democrats.

When they got together, they loved to drink, smoke dope, and play Rap music. I, and my wife, didn't understand the seeming conflict between white racist listening to black music, and the fact that all these white racist voted with the black folks. So, my wife, without my blessing I might add, decided to start asking a few questions.

So, the Grand Dragon, or whatever, kinda explained it this way. “Well, you can't kill’em or beat’em anymore and actually if you get to know ‘em they are just like us rednecks only they're niggers. So, all in all we just try to get along the best we can.”

Made sense to me....

The machine that ended the support for the KKK in the south: http://www.livinghistoryfarm.org/farminginthe50s/machines_15.html

After the cotton combines there was no longer the need to prevent blacks from leaving for better wages elsewhere.

Many of them were actually construction workers who supplemented their income during down times by making and distributing drugs. Meth, Coke, Pot, whatever.

Sorry for the confusion..

In a follow-up news story, it was discovered the rally was really a Tennessee Democratic Party rally. The confusion arose when most members were also on the rolls of said groups. The rally will go on as planned.

“After the cotton combines there was no longer the need to prevent blacks from leaving for better wages elsewhere.”

You bet. So they left. Going to Detroit, Chicago, New York etc...And how’d that work out? So, luckily for us they’re headed back this way now.

Ever wonder why all the blacks in Alabama voted for George Wallace? Just one of those things that make you go “Huh?”

But the South has alway been a place of contradictions.

I’ve seen some post online and known a few (definitely wouldn’t call them friends or even acquaintances) and they love Democrat policies, especially LBJ’s Great Society because they think it is creating a separation in the cultures they want. A means to an end.

Sadly, African Americans don’t see LBJ’s great society as a new enslavement and very few have ever taken the time to hear LBJ’s own words from the White House recordings on what he thought of the African American community and how he saw using welfare to keep them under the party thumb.

“...perplexed...”

It’s not that hard to understand. There are several different organizations of the Klan. Obviously, the alledged rally was being proposed by a rival Klan to the Memphis chapter of United Klans.

“The real question is… fake or not…isn’t hate awful anyway it comes?”

The real hatred comes from the race baiters wanting not only that these small parks be renamed but for history to be expunged.

The Republicans took the blacks out of bondage and the Democrats put them right back in. That’s why the KKK and other racist groups vote democrat, make no mistake about it. And blacks, even those who should know better, keep voting Democrat because Daddy Government is going to take care of them. Just like the Plantation owners. It’s a f-—ing sick mentality. And it’s taking over the whole mindset of the citizens, sheeple of the United State.

I wish the Sons of Confederate Veterans would rally and kick the KKK’s ass.

That’s my dream.....

Hmmmm. I think the KKK will be so out-numbered it won’t be funny. There just aren’t that many Klansmen left.

LOL, so what you are saying is that the KKK is nothing more than a social club now. I get it.

Oh, I forgot to say, but another reason blacks and KKK are united is their hate for the, wait for it, JOOOOOSSSSS, and Cat’licks too. Far as the Jews go, well they’ve got a lot of problems with them. We don’t have a large Jewish population around here, so our local KKK isn’t so concerned with the reason, they just have to have someone to hate.

As for the Catholics. Well, we don’t have a lot of them around here either. Maybe it’s cause the Pope wears a funny hat or something?

But, whatever, militant blacks, excuse me “African Americans”, hate Jews and Catholics and so do the KKK. And skin heads, and Aryan Nation and...well you get the picture.

I think it’s one of those “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” type of thing. All I know is they’re all nuts.

Having never had any association with the Klan or even knowing any klan members, I just assumed that they would stand with other fellow klan members before standing with blakcks. Thus my confusion. I have since learned that klans are nothing more than social groups now. Who knew, certainly not me.

That they are a social club. But, believe me, they are dangerous. And organized. And the Government claims that they are basically extinct. Just like the Mafia. Do not underestimate them. They have members and sympathizers in upper levels of Justice. I’m really not sure who, or what they are being prepared for. I don’t think a race war. I really don’t. I’m not sure if all the unions are complict. All I know is many union members are, if not members, then sympathetic to their cause, whatever it may be. I do know if the SHTF then I want them on my side. But, I’m afraid that ain’t gonna happen.

My first, 5 second thought hoped the two gangs would obliterate each other, but then I accepted the fact the 1st Amendment allows the KKK a voice.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the uneducated, boot-licking media supports criminal actions against the loathsome KKK.

This story stinks. So you have an admitted gang member (the Crips) identifying himself. The last thing the Crips want is exposure because they are always the subject of RICO statutes (organized crime racketeering).

And the Klan is going to work with them. More likely dividing up the drug territory against an interloper KKK faction.

Sounds like the Black P Stone Rangers and the liberals in Chicago when they got together in the late 1960’s/early 70’s for tea and strumpets. Saul Alinsky also had his fingers in that strange mix.

Memphis: The home of good BBQ and music, not lovey-dovey Crips/KKK lovefests.

If the KKK is flying the CSA flag or some skin head take the flag away first.

There is a KKK enclave in the county next to us. They are largely focused on world domination by the Jews, survivalist type scenarios/EOTWAWKI and nefarious global plots. They are friendlier with radical Islam because they share that Jew hatred.
Evidently, Ku Klux Klan is Latin for “I’m on the disability”.
