KKK shoots and kills

... the group's leader, Raymond "Chuck" Foster, 44, shot and killed the woman Sunday after a fight broke out when she tried to leave.

"This is not what I would call an established Klan group," he said. "The Klan has a pretty high association with violence. Some of these guys are just crooks, sociopaths."

The KKK is the largest officially racist organization in the country. Why would they not be more active now, that the majority has rejected their basic principles? Previously, they could blame it all on the courts and the "pointy-headed intellectuals", but no longer, so they are throwing tantrums.

I don't know , I don't think this incident got much press.

When I was a kid they were still the invisible empire , now they are the gang that can't shoot straight.

I hope that what happened to the KKK can happen also to the Al Quieda , which has some simularity.

Acoording to what I hear, the KKK is itself in resurgence largely in your beloved bigoted South and a few other backward mostly Repud areas. This time it is largely due to the immigration issue.


The KKK Has Found a Rebirth Through Immigration Issues
By Christine Moers
On February 6, 2007, the Anti-Defamation League released a report showing "a surprising and troubling resurgence" of the Ku Klux Klan.
The resurrection of the Klan, whose numbers had taken a drastic hit in the 1990's, may be in part to hot topics of the past year such as immigration, gay marriage, and urban crime, the report says.
"Extremist groups are good at seizing on whatever the hot button is of the day and twisting the message to get new members, " Deborah M. Lauter, ADL Civil Rights director, said Monday.
Slogans such as, "Let's get rid of Mexicans'," were included in an anti-immigration rally last May in Alabama, according to the ADL document titled "Ku Klux Klan Rebounds."
Klan chapters have grown by 63 percent and hate groups by 33 percent, says Mark Potok, who tracks hate crimes and serves as director of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The ADL report lists 19 states as having notable activity and growth in Klan chapters. Those states are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia.
While it is difficult to pinpoint specific numbers, Potok's group has located upwards of 150 Klan chapters numbering 8,000 members around the nation. Southern Poverty has also found at least 800 hate groups in existence.
The union between groups has been significant. For instance, in March 2006 several Klan groups met in Laurens, South Carolina, in conjunction with approximately 80 members of the National Socialist Movement. Their purpose was to discuss a cooperative effort among the various organizations.
Such groups saw a significant drop in members and leadership during the late 1990's. Many hit rock bottom around 2000, said Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino.
"Whenever you think the Klan is down and out, they find another way to reinvent themselves," he said of the current rebirth.
Among the use of immigration issues to spur growth and interest, the Klan has also shown creativity in their publicity tricks. Some teachers received racist fliers during Black History Month. The KKK is also using the internet to spread anti-Semitism and racism, including the internet-based radio station called "KKK Radio."
Today, white supremacists are making claims that it is immigration to blame, particularly Hispanics, for the ails of society such as a struggling educational system, unemployment and crime.
There are Latinos who are personally experiencing the effects. A Kansas family, only in the U.S. for a few weeks after moving from El Salvador, found a burning wooden cross in their front yard.
It was earlier last year when a Houston Latino teenager was brutally beaten and sodomized. She barely survived, but was able to recall that her attacker was screaming, "White Power!"

==================================================
The KKK represents a very small, but very adamant minority. They are reactionaries, and see the good ol' days passing them by, and want to return to those wonderful days of years gone by, when the n*ggers knew they was in their place, and them as didn't could be hung from trees as strange fruit. They see the mongrelization of America, and what is Obama but a walking example of this?

Your analysis is probably right, however Knute seems to think that political affiliation seems to have some bearing on whether you are a member of the KKK or not.

I don't think it does. I would think economic class has more to do with it.

I would imagine that in the past election, there were very, very few Kluxers who voted for Obama. I doubt that the've ever heard of the Libertarians, so I imagine nearly all  of those who voted, voted for for McCain. Perhaps Hillary might have gotten 1% more than Obama among this group had she been the Democratic nominee. Huckabee might have swung as much as 4%.
