Ku Klux Klan

Definition from Wikipedia:

The Ku Klux Klan (KKK), or simply “the Klan“, is the name of three distinct past and present movements in the United States that have advocated extremist reactionary currents such as white supremacy, white nationalism, and anti-immigration, (emphasis mine) historically expressed through terrorism aimed at groups or individuals whom they opposed.

The byline on the KKK.com website:

Bringing a Message of Hope and Deliverance to White Christian America! (emphasis mine) A Message of Love NOT Hate!

From the Q&A page of the KKK.bz website:

Q. Why do you think you are so superior to everyone else?

A. We don’t care who is superior and who isn’t. God made us all. We simply believe that the United States of America was founded as a white Christian nation. (emphasis mine) We base this belief on the many writings of our founding fathers as well as the Declaration of Independence. We believe there are those who hate the concepts of Western civilization – Christianity – and wish to turn the United States into a different type of nation than what was originally intended by our ancestors. (emphasis mine) We think it would be terrible if white Christians ceased to exist and we are working to preserve and promote their interests. We feel the concepts of Christianity benefit all people regardless of color. The fact is we have a right to love our children and our heritage. Even if the white race was but mere cavemen and cavewomen, we still have a right to protect and advance our people.

I’m posting this because of an article I read  in which “Anonymous” is revealing the heretofore unknown names of those belonging to this hate group. Many are prominent mayors and U.S. Senators.

The essential truth is this: We are all human beings. We all require food, we all require water, we all need to eliminate waste. We all have blood flowing through our veins, we all have glands and organs that operate within us to keep us alive. The color of our skin has absolutely no bearing on the core functions of you, me, or any other human.

If it were up to me, the word racism would be eliminated from our vocabulary.

    • I don’t know, but I tend to think it’s pretty accurate. Anonymous has revealed other stuff in the past that has some merit. The whole thing reminds me of WikiLeaks. There is definitely “stuff” out there that we, the average citizens, are not supposed to know — and the responsible parties will do whatever they can to keep it hidden.

  1. We base this belief on the many writings of our founding fathers” – I’m afraid I would have to ask the author of this what the beliefs were of the founding fathers who met HIS founding fathers at Plymouth Rock.

  2. “If it were up to me, the word racism would be eliminated from our vocabulary.” If it were up to me, and it will be when I become Emperor of all I survey, racists would be eliminated from society. That list is quite interesting. Came across it a few times today on blogs. Seems pretty legit. Very glad that “Anonymous” published it. Hope there’s some strong political backlash at the people listed on it. Shame is a powerful weapon against idjits. And, IMO, racists are really, really big idjits.

  3. UPDATE: Some news reports are saying the above-reported list is not being circulated by Anonymous — although the group says it is planning to release information on approximately 1,000 members in November.

    Of course, some of those named are denying it. But what else would you expect?
