The Raw Story reports that the Loyal White Knights of the Klu Klux Klan have been making their presence known throughout central Florida with membership recruitment flyers appearing in residential neighborhoods. One of the main tenets the Klu Klux Klan is trying to sell is that they have saved America twice from destruction. Their membership drive urges candidates to join them so they too can help save America.
According to the organization’s perspective on American history, the KKK “saved” the United States from “n*gger terrorists” who threatened to destroy the country after the Civil War. Between 1865 and the early 1870s, former Confederate soldiers resorted to extrajudicial measures in order to restore the social hierarchy shattered by the war.
It is common knowledge The Klu Klux Klan terrorized free blacks after the civil war and the effects of that can still be felt to this day. Any and all perceived infractions were enough for the Klan to come after a black person. One of the most popular “crimes” was rape or some type of misconduct to a white woman. Blacks, particularly males, were in a constant state of awareness concerning the Klu Klux Klan.
The terrorization slowed down when President Ulysses Grant signed the 1871 Civil Rights Act, which dissolved many KKK chapters. The act gave local authorities the right to suspend habeas corpus, which requires a person to be brought before a judge if arrested. The principle being that a person can be released if unlawfully detained. The spirit of the times dictated some leniency for local lawmakers.
The second time the KKK saved America was upon the D.W. Griffith’s release The Birth of a Nation (1915), which regarded them as a favorable organization to combat against raging black males lurking the country side for white women.
The new flyers being release urge potential members to consider joining them to assist with ridding America of Communists that are stealing the country.
The local grand dragon gave an interview to WFTV 9 (fully garbed with the hood) that the flyers “are just the tip of the iceberg, and that he belongs to an invisible empire.” He referenced that police, judges, and other civil servants are members of the KKK.
