It seems that illegal immigration has sparked a resurgence in their ranks. That is a hot issue with me and much of the U.S. population, as well. From the Alliance Defense League web site:
New York, NY, February 6, 2007 … The Ku Klux Klan, which just a few years ago seemed static or even moribund compared to other white supremacist movements such as neo-Nazis, experienced "a surprising and troubling resurgence" during the past year due to the successful exploitation of hot-button issues including immigration, gay marriage and urban crime, according to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
The League, which monitors the activities of racist hate groups and reports its findings to law enforcement and policymakers, has documented a noticeable spike in activity by Klan chapters across the country. The KKK believes that the U.S. is "drowning" in a tide of non-white immigration, controlled and orchestrated by Jews, and is vigorously trying to bring this message to Americans concerned or fearful about immigration.
"If any one single issue or trend can be credited with re-energizing the Klan, it is the debate over immigration in America," said Deborah M. Lauter, ADL Civil Rights Director. "Klan groups have witnessed a surprising and troubling resurgence by exploiting fears of an immigration explosion, and the debate over immigration has, in turn, helped to fuel an increase in Klan activity, with new groups sprouting in parts of the country that have not seen much activity."
I don't believe for a minute that illegal immigration is orchestrated by the Jews. That is just a conspiracy theory about an easy target. I don't care that the immigration they are complaining about is non-White. I couldn't care less what the ethnic background is of immigrants. I only want the immigration to be legal, for it to not drain the economy, and be fair to the existing citizens. Unfortunately, that is not the case.
This area was once a Klan stronghold. It will be interesting to see if they grow around here.
