KKK Leader Disputes Hate Group Label: 'We're A Christian Organization'
The leader of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan is tired of “a few rogue Klansmen” ruining the group’s reputation, and argues that the group is a non-violent Christian organization. “We don’t hate people because of their race, I mean, we’re a Christian organization,” Frank Ancona, the group's Imperial Wizard, told Virginia's NBC 12 on Thursday. "Because of the acts of a few rogue Klansmen, all Klansmen are supposed to be murderers, and wanting to lynch black people, and we're supposed to be terrorists. That's a complete falsehood.”
Ancona’s group has come under fire from residents of Chesterfield County, Va., about 20 miles south of Richmond, for distributing KKK recruitment fliers in people's yards since January. "We picked ours up out of our driveway and threw it in the trash," Sarah Peachee told NBC 12. "We weren't interested in even reading about it." Ancona defended the strategy, however, citing a boom in KKK membership across the country since 2008."
(Not suprisingly, that's the year President Obama, our first bi-racial president was elected!)
"In the last six years that I've been president of this organization I've seen the numbers probably triple," Ancona told NBC 12. Although Ancona insisted that the KKK is not a hate group, he added that “We just want to keep our race the white race."
"We want to stay white,” Ancona said. “It's not a hateful thing to want to maintain white supremacy."
To counter the above-depressing article, we've posted something you won't read on right wing blogs, because MUSLIMS!!!!
Muslim non-profits are raising money to rebuild black churches because “all houses of worship are sanctuaries”
