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. Its been decades since the Klan held that sort of mainstream sway, but Sundays deadly rampage at two Jewish community facilities in Overland Park, Kan. serves as a reminder that the nations best known white supremacy organization has not completely disappeared.

Yes, the Democrats are working hard to retake the House.
“The Ku Klux Klan was once a major DEMOCRAT CREATED force in America...”
Fixed what they intentionally left out.
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.
Makes me think of Bette Davis’ comeback in “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?”.
Yep it sure is, maybe the next KKK member will run as a Dem just like that schmuck did
A nice bit of fear-mongering to motivate one’s base.
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.
Yesterday a KKK guy killed two people. How many people were killed by “teens” yesterday?
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.
I done think it’s quite that black and white....
Doh doh doh...
Southern Poverty Law Center... Liberal azzholes so whatever they say is meaningless anyway.
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.
Old Morris Dees has carved out a very nice living over 40+ yrs riding that one trick pony....
The SPLC is a hate group
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 Horowitzs place:
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 . . . .
Maybe not Sarah, this perp has run on both sides of the ticket. May have been paid to do that. Unknown.
Yeah but the left wing kooks only report on the “He ran as a Republican” they of course leave off the tiny little tidbit that he also ran as a Dem..TWICE
White guilt blah, blah, blah.
Wonder if we could come up with some bank record for that time he ran as a republican ... ah ... forget that. More court orders.
I look at the KKK like I look at Democrats. Both are stupid and don’t fare well if they attain much power. I have utter disdain for both.
The Nutjob who shot folks was a former member of the KKK—Now how crazy do you have to be to be kicked out of the KKK?
Bump and re-bump.
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.
75% of them are FBI informants. The other 25% are dumbasses.
Morris Dees makes his money by scaring guilty white leftists and getting them to send money to him.
KKK Terrorist Arm of the Democratic Party
By Frances Rice
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 Klans 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 partys 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 Foners 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 Floridas 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
really??? No way! Can’t even guess why if this is true. Can’t be....really? Don’t buy it, all lies
I don’t believe it either. What is possible is that they are trying to cast TEA party and like groups as the KKK.
Probably, however in this day in time if your white your in the KKK. Especially if you don’t support the “president”
And they're all politically and socially conservative.
“The KKK Tries to Make A Comeback”
Let’s rewrite the headline:
The Democrat KKK Tries to Make A Comeback and Time Loves It
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.
