Re: “KKK to Rally in Memphis?

4 Trinity:
It is not just a “hey I am white party”. I should point out that many organizations have had a darker past, including but not limited to the Masons, Catholicism, and even the Mormon religion. Again I will say that you have to understand the difference between traditional Klan and other Klan organizations that profess to be Klan. The traditional Klan does not recognize Nazism, socialism, or Communism. As far as the hangings during reconstruction and even during the 1960’s the Klan got credit even though they were not involved. The Klan actually hanged more white people than blacks during reconstruction because as I have said it was not about hate. Basically during the reconstruction of the south there was no law or protection for white southerners they could not vote, and basically had no rights. Additionally there were at least a million slaves turned out on society with nowhere to go, or food to eat so needless to say there was much lawlessness in those times. The north also had carpet baggers and scalawags who preyed upon the southern whites and raised taxes through imposed government representatives so as to take their lands and property, hence the Klan was born to address these issues. After it was realized that they could accomplish most of their goals with just intimidation by claiming to be ghosts of confederate dead they capitalized on the concept. The Klan also received credit for many things it did not do during these times because anyone could put on a mask and commit a crime and then blame it on the Klan. Do not misunderstand as with any organization there are those that operate outside of the law and the rules and we are no exception. What I am saying is that the true traditional Klan is a white Christian organization that obeys the law period. We do not hate blacks, or any other race or creed, we just do not subscribe the mixing of the races and we believe the white race is superior. We also believe in the US constitution as it was originally written and we will defend it with our lives if required. We believe in rue Americanism, and that Jesus Christ is our Criterion of Character. So for those who think they know, or have been associated with Klan want to be organizations I say do your research. I will amble on back to my trailer in the middle of nowhere for the night and pick this up again tomorrow.

Re: “KKK to Rally in Memphis?

What I still find amazing is the fact everyone associates the Klan with hatred towards blacks, as I said before believing in white supremacy does not constitute hate, it is just being proud of one’s race, heritage, and beliefs. Secondly, as I always see on sites like this are those who will not engage in the conversation rationally concerning the Klan but are quick to attack it because he have no knowledge about it the history, or the good works the organization has done over the years, instead they rely on other what they see on the History Channel. Like I have also said, there is a difference between groups who use the Klan name and Traditional Klan organizations. What I find as amusing hypocrisy is that during the civil rights movement in the 60’s white people were accused of just fearing what they do not understand referencing Blacks. I would have to say that it looks like all of you on here who oppose the Klan today also do so out of fear what you do not understand, and because of your fear you have no intention of seeking the truth. Besides it is more fun to attack than understand huh? “But if the shoe fits right.” To address the fictitious correlation about the Klan becoming an organization of cowards due to blacks arming themselves, again you have to distinguish between Traditional Klan, and groups who claim to be Klan of which there are many. The actual traditional Klan is a non-violent Christian organization, but we will defend ourselves if we or our families are attacked, which has nothing to do with race so I would need to see your statistical data to believe your statement. As far as the bumper sticker issue, I personally would write it off as an immature act by vandals hardly worth the time to discuss, but just so you know I am not afraid to wear my Regalia in public or around the police (no matter their color), as I am protected by the first amendment to do so if I choose. If any of you have any additional questions or comments please let me know, so for now I will once again amble back to my trailer in the middle of nowhere.

Re: “KKK to Rally in Memphis?

As usual there is much misinformation being put out about the Klan, or should I say misinformation about the traditional Ku Klux Klan. I have fortunately happened upon a page full of “Klan authorities” who speak out about what they do not know or understand and as usual their ignorance of the organization never ceases to amaze me. I will not hold you to blame for the lack of knowledge you possess as you are as many people in the Nation today subject to the erroneous propaganda put out by the Liberal news media. I will however take a minute and address some of the bloviated remarks that I have seen posted. First, let me say that the Klan is a White Christian organization, and yes we believe in the supremacy of the white race, so any so called Klan that says otherwise is not the traditional Ku Klux Klan. Believing in white supremacy does not in itself make you a hate group, and in fact Traditional Klans are not hate groups. Also I would like you to know that the Klan numbers are not small, in fact they are growing at a rate that even has the ADL and the SPLC on edge. As far as power, well that would depend on the definition, I know for a fact that the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan has won (3) lawsuits in the State of Missouri in the last year, two recently in which we were represented by none other than the ACLU and ruled on in Federal court. The best part of these cases was that they protected our first amendment rights and if our rights were protected so were yours by proxy, and by the way you are welcome. I do not know who put out the edict that there was going to be a rally in Memphis, but if this turns out to be a legitimate organizational event the numbers may surprise many people. If this is just some internet Klan trying to make a name for it then they have a lot to learn also. I will close by saying what the City Council in Memphis did was to appease some radical black activist with this decision and contribute to erasing our history and heritage as a southern state. The saddest part of all of this is that many of you think it is ok to destroy your own heritage and that my friend is very sad indeed. Well I have said enough for now and I will amble back to my trailer in the middle of nowhere until we know if there will in fact be an event, sleep well tonight knowing the Klan is awake!
