OKLAHOMA CITY -- Are extremist groups like the Ku Klux Klan experiencing a resurgence in Oklahoma? A website called HateTrackers.com, noted on KTOK's "Mark Shannon Show" by guest host Lee Matthews on Thursday afternoon, brought the new site, connected to a webbie known as "Gossip Boy" to the attention of Red Dirt Report.
As we have seen in the tragic case of Cynthia Lynch, a troubled woman from Tulsa who traveled to St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana to be initiated into the Sons of Dixie Brotherhood chapter of the KKK and was subsequently murdered when she tried to back out of the initiation.
The alleged murderers were apprehended and according to a report in the Slidell Sentry newspaper in Louisiana, the trial of accused murderer, Raymond "Chuck" Foster, has been scheduled to begin April 5, 2010.
Notes HateTrackers.com in a March 5, 2010 report: As membership climbs rapidly in the state, eight klaverns involved in the United White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan will be gathering in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma on March 20 beginning at 11 a.m.

Oh goody...I’m going to be lumped in with those sheet-wearing idiots. Most of them were Democrats, weren’t they?
Oklahoma is turning Democrat?
ALL of them were Democrats.
“Is you, or is you not ma’ constituents?”
They invented the KKK.
Maybe some of the Dems are getting fed up with all the liberal infiltrators.

If people feel that the government no longer responds to the will of the people and they have no power through the conventional political process, a certain percentage will revert to racism and bigotry. This is not a problem with these people, but rather a reflection of the fact that they feel they have no voice and that our government is illegitimate.
Good bet is that 8 out of 10 "Klansmen" are actually cops playing the part and trying to flip others into the police surveillance. Union guys with a purpose.
I wonder if there is a correlation to the declining education in public schools and the increasing membership of some of these groups. You have to have a pretty low IQ to considering joining. The dumbing down of education make people act like idiots and join groups such as this.
The Klan: the Terrorism arm of the Democrat Party!!!!
Robert Byrd must have gotten out of the hospital and headed to Oklahoma.
Yes and the skin heads are national socialists, just another variant of the left.
KKK, aka Democratic Party.
Yep, ol'Democrats! They hung Republicans back in the day.
The proper redneck English is, “is you is or is you ain’t my constituents?”
Robert 'Sheets' Byrd.
and CURRENT US SENATOR
But don't worry Black People.. he 'repudiated' his past (but hmmmm he looks kinda old in that photo -as GRAND KLEAGLE (leader) of the KKK- when did he abandon them??)
Link at the linked page goes to another page with some pictures of the Klan at night.
This cross burning stuff is getting really old. It’s disrespectful to the Lord no matter what form of Christianity they profess. Also apparently one is supposed to believe in white supremacy, whatever that is supposed to mean.
I’m thinking there are a lot of new “klansmen” who are more confortable wearing purple t-shirts than white sheets.
There was a “white pride” march in Jackson Michigan last week that consisted of a whopping crowd of 10 racists.
Funny thing is that these 10 “racists” have managed to stir the passions of hundreds for nearly a week. Now local churches are having some kind of unity march. Its almost as if a community organizer had been involved.
If so, how would they permit a reluctant initiate to be murdered?
Are the churches into the Klan or are they trying to apologize to the group of 100 or so black people that the 10 racists attracted?
gee, THIS doesn’t fit the media template from the last 72 hours or anything /sarc
The Rats are nothing BUT lefty liberals now it seems. I’d think that, like Ronald Reagan, a Rat discomfited by the liberals will become a Republican.
Nope. Not in Oklahoma, not anywhere. The consensus is that there are maybe 2000 KKK members in the U.S. and 10% of them are actually moles from various law enforcement agencies.
If they had anything to say or do, they would have made the effort during the Duke Rape Hoax or the recent New Black Panther voter intimidation incident.
Why of course the “knowledgeable news” would focus on “extreme rightists.” Though funny there is no mention about political party affiliation. If this was Republicans they would be trumpeting it to high heaven.
Could you please cite the last KKK member to be charged with murder (of an initiate or anyone else). A member. Not someone from a group “linked to the KKK”.
The churches are showing unity against the horrifying racism that traveled half way across the state to display itself. (Again, 10 people for an hour)
We aren’t known for being a hotbed of racial tension but somebody sure wanted us to be.
I thought the KKK was primarily Democrats that didn’t like the Republicans freeing slaves.
Was Democrat Senator Robert Byrd there?
>> The Rats are nothing BUT lefty liberals now it seems.
It’s so bad, these Lefty turds give Liberalism a bad name.
So this blog was written on March 26. speaks of a klan meeting that is going to happen on March 20?
did the blogger find out if the meeting was held?
As much as I sometimes hate it our freedom fo speech allows for the freaks and freaks like that fake church in Wichita KS and freaks like Farrakhan and Wright
It’s the midget KKK you have to worry about!
MIDGET KKK!!! (Jerry Springer, 2000)
The media is suddenly finding it fasionable to report on the Michigan Militia again. There have been two stories in the Ann Arbor news this week.
Funny thing was thayt one of the stories was kind of a “where are they now” piece and the other was about a local police department getting their help in a search for a person missing in the woods.
Similarly, see growth in nation of Islam and the NAACP. Same goals, different races.
At the end, I tried to do a follow-up with local police departments. Yes, this event did happen, allegedly. this was a follow-up report.
Now THAT is a poorly written sentence.
You make a good point. The Left loves to tilt at windmills but what mischief has the Klan caused lately? ...Less than the Southern Poverty Law Center for sure.
That would come as a surprise to David Duke.
Oh stop it. Not one more word.
Stop trying to project your own racism upon us.
YOU, in fact, are the real racists.
Historically, your Party’s racism and atrocities are undeniable. Yours was the Party of Slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, and opposition to every piece of civil rights legislation the GOP tried to pass. The KKK is the terrorist wing of the Democratic Party . . . .YOUR Party.
But even today, your racism continues. Oh sure, you smile and say how much you support blacks and how many wonderful, “articulate” blacks you admire, but beneath that lie is a contempt you show with your every action.
It is YOUR boot on the throat of every person whom you’ve made into a government dependent.
The black family, once the equal in cohesion to the white family, is now rent asunder. Welfare rules you created and touted as humane for 40 years have driven black men and black women apart. Most black children now grow up without a dad in the home. The blood of the black family is on YOUR hands.
It is YOUR abortion mills that are bringing about a slow genocide of blacks in America.
Those are YOUR abortion mills, which are carrying on the work of YOUR hero, Margaret Sanger . . . the feminist, eugenicist, and nazi darling . . . you know, the one who wanted to make sure the word didn’t get out about her plan to “exterminate the negro.”
It is YOUR people who say that the drop in crime in the 90s was brought about by the abortion of what YOU called would-be criminal black babies.
It is you who think so little of black people that you constantly tell them, in word and in deed, that they are not able to compete on a level playing field. It is you who seek to drive this message home every chance you get. It is you who uses this lie to keep them on a plantation of government dependence and electoral vassalage.
All we want blacks to do is build familes, get rich, and participate in the building of a civil society . . . .just like what we want for everyone else. And you call US the racists?
Oh, and let’s go back in time, shall we?
The Republican Party foughtand its people diedto end Slavery.
Then, we fought and died to end segregation, and to bring voting and other civil rights to all the freed slaves.
Died? Yes, died. We died because YOU created the KKK to kill Republicans and blacks, and to take away the gains we were trying to make.
And you did a damn good job of it, too. You drove us out of the South.
We fought for civil rights for 100 years. You opposed our every effort.
You opposed our attempts to end segregation. You filibustered our civil rights bills. You even fought against us when we proposed anti-lynching legislation.
Your officials turned firehoses on people marching for freedom. Your governors stood in the doorways of schools to prevent little black girls and boys from entering.
It was a REPUBLICAN president who had to send the National Guard the National Guard! just so that these children could go to school.
Civil Rights did not become possible because you started supporting it. Civil rights became possible because you stopped standing in the way of it.
More of our politicians supported Civil Rights legislation than yours did. Yours filibustered it! It finally made it through because of the tireless efforts of the Republican minority leader.
Oh what, now you want to tell me that it was only the SOUTHERN Democrats who were the racists? Okay fine. Half of your party were slaveholding, segregationist, KKK-creating, Jim Crow upholding opposers of civil rights.
Gee, only half? You must be very proud.
Guess what, NONE of my party ever was. We didn’t stop fighting for civil rights until civil rights legislation was finally passed.
You wanna tell me that only half your party was bad? Fine. That half of your party controlled your attitude towards race from the foundations of this nation all the way up until the 1960s. That half of your party WAS the problem. Without them, we would have done away with segregation and poll taxes and lynchings 140 years ago.
Oh, and let’s look at the South. When Democrats controlled the South, it was a bastion of segregation. Now, Republicans control the South . . . and look! We didn’t bring back segregation and literacy tests for voting. It may not be perfect yet, but it’s not the segregated place you made it anymore.
You have the nerve to call me a racist? To call us racists? Why? Because I am a Republican? You have a lot of nerve. Or is it because I have white skin?
You’d better not be saying that, because that’s called blood guilt. That says that I’m guilty by nothing more than my biology. That idea was very popular in Germany in the 1930s, but I have to say, we don’t much appreciate it now.
Oh, and funny thing, that idea was also popular among YOUR ideological forebears for almost two centuries. Interesting that you’re pushing a similar notion here in 2008.
My ideological forebears fought and died to put an end to the injustices YOUR ideological forebears wrought. I am proud to follow in their tradition. I have NOTHING to be ashamed of.
For what your ideological forebears did . . . and for what you’re doing today . . . you might want to think about feeling a bit of shame yourself.
You are still capable of feeling shame, aren’t you?
I hope it’s real. I know that “Reno 911” on Comedy Central occasionally had bits with klutzes who dressed like KKK but weren’t racists and couldn’t understand why people hated them.
Great and well written.
I get tired of being called racist by the vey people who are racist to the core
Contrary to the latest reports and photos Robert Byrd is not dead.
He just looks like it.
He forgot to cut a hole in his sheet to stick his head through.
we need to knock those bastards out for good. They’re about as stupid as the neo-nazi’s.
I reckon I shoulda added a sarcasm tag as my point was only that they were originally spawned from Dems.
