The KKK Tries to Make A Comeback
Time ^ | 4/15

Posted on 04/15/2014 3:39:30 PM PDT by nickcarraway

As a former Klan leader is charged with killing three in Kansas, the frayed white supremacy group is trying to attract new members. The Southern Poverty Law Center estimates the number of hate groups in the U.S. has risen from 602 in 2000 to 939 in 2013

The Ku Klux Klan was once a major force in America, with a membership of nearly 4 million that regularly included mayors, chiefs of police and other grandees of segregated regions, especially in the South and Midwest. It’s been decades since the Klan held that sort of mainstream sway, but Sunday’s deadly rampage at two Jewish community facilities in Overland Park, Kan. serves as a reminder that the nation’s best known white supremacy organization has not completely disappeared.

Frazier Glenn Cross, 73, of Aurora, Missouri, is led to a police car after his arrest following shooting incidents which killed three people at two Jewish centers on Sunday in Overland Park, south of Kansas City, Kansas in a still image from video April 13, 201

The press just loves to demonize whites. In spite of that it is about damn time whites started standing up and speaking up for themselves.

They should invent some brutal new form of racial violence, they could call it “the knock-out game”.

That way they could make entire communities off limits to other races, and let it be known that being caught in that part of town after dark, is a likely death sentence.

Yep, you know its an election year when the media breaks out all of the left's boogiemen.

And to hell with them for creating fear and resentment to further their political ideology.

The MSM is the largest hate group in the nation.

The KKK Tries to Make A Comeback

Sounds like the Obama Flying Monkeys from the Southern Poverty Law Center and every other Soros/Acorn/Obamabot group and web site hysterically trying to get the news away from Thug Holder, Benghazzi, the BLM, IRS, The FBI, the CIA, criminal elected morons, etc...

A disaster in their tiny minds.

But a tiny threat compared to an unconstitutional criminal activist regime...

Compared to that crowd, the KKK are Boy Scouts.

nick ... I have no link but am hearing this perp also was a suspect in the murder of three homosexuals in N.C. Perp did testify at the murder trial in N.C. Lame-stream is pulling out all the stops to blame this on white Christians, in my neck of the woods, when the truth is something far different. No surprises, thus far.

Did someone say Morris Dees?

The church of Morris Dees: How the Southern Poverty Law Center profits from intolerance By Ken Silverstein

Harper's magazine, Nov. 2000

You may have to pay to read it at Harper's but there are copies elsewhere.

Thanks to another FReeper who located it here:

at David Horowitz’s place:

http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/Articles/The%20Church%20of%20Morris%20Dees.html

I bet they've dumped 10 tons of fund-raising letters into the mail citing Mr. Bundy and supporters as dangerous haters, KKK, white supremacists, "tesbaggers", conservatives, veterans, FReepers . . . .

What the Establishment Media is desperate for you to not know is that of the three murder victims of this story, two were Methodist and one was Catholic.
There were no Jewish victims.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has increased their number of hate groups since they add conservatives as haters. I read somewhere in the last day or so that SPLC now has Cliven Bundy of Nevada listed as a domestic terrorist. I have not checked Dees site to prove that is so.

Morris Dees impacted a member of my immediate family at one time years ago and Dees is the hater - he lost to my family member. If you go to his Poverty Law Center website and read, you will see he “hates” all conservatives. If you are a member of a conservative group, you will likely see it listed there as a hate group. It is HIS hate group.

He was also enthralled with the idea of national socialism.
So, he sure as hell was not and is not a conservative. He’s a lefty.

KKK Terrorist Arm of the Democratic Party

By Frances Rice

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bEOiDjdhF4&feature=share

History shows that the Ku Klux Klan was the terrorist arm of the Democrat Party. This ugly fact about the Democrat Party is detailed in the book, A Short History of Reconstruction, (Harper & Row Publishers, Inc., 1990) by Dr. Eric Foner, the renown liberal historian who is the DeWitt Clinton Professor of History at Columbia University.

As a further testament to his impeccable credentials, Professor Foner is only the second person to serve as president of the three major professional organizations:
the Organization of American Historians, American Historical Association, and Society of American Historians.
Democrats in the last century did not hide their connections to the Ku Klux Klan.

Georgia-born Democrat Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan wrote on page 21 of the September 1928 edition of the Klan’s “The Kourier Magazine”: “I have never voted for any man who was not a regular Democrat. My father … never voted for any man who was not a Democrat. My grandfather was …the head of the Ku Klux Klan in reconstruction days…. My great-grandfather was a life-long Democrat…. My great-great-grandfather was…one of the founders of the Democratic party.”

Dr. Foner in his book explores the history of the origins of Ku Klux Klan and provides a chilling account of the atrocities committed by Democrats against Republicans, black and white.

On page 146 of his book, Professor Foner wrote: “Founded in 1866 as a Tennessee social club, the Ku Klux Klan spread into nearly every Southern state, launching a ‘reign of terror‘ against Republican leaders black and white.” Page 184 of his book contains the definitive statements: “In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic party, the planter class, and all those who desired the restoration of white supremacy. It aimed to destroy the Republican party’s infrastructure, undermine the Reconstruction state, reestablish control of the black labor force, and restore racial subordination in every aspect of Southern life.”

Heartbreaking are Professor Foner’s recitations of the horrific acts of terror inflicted by Democrats on black and white Republicans. Recounted on pages 184-185 of his book is one such act of terror: “Jack Dupree, a victim of a particularly brutal murder in Monroe County, Mississippi - assailants cut his throat and disemboweled him, all within sight of his wife, who had just given birth to twins - was ‘president of a republican club‘ and known as a man who ‘would speak his mind.’”

“White gangs roamed New Orleans, intimidating blacks and breaking up Republican meetings,“ wrote Dr. Foner on page 146 of his book. On page 186, he wrote: “An even more extensive ‘reign of terror’ engulfed Jackson, a plantation county in Florida’s panhandle. ‘That is where Satan has his seat,‘ remarked a black clergyman; all told over 150 persons were killed, among them black leaders and Jewish merchant Samuel Fleischman, resented for his Republican views and for dealing fairly with black customers.“

Frances Rice is the Chairman of the National Black Republican Association

The KKK began after the Civil War as an “insurgent” terrorist force. To hear it in the terms the Left used to describe Iraq, the Civil War was waged for 100 years.
