Alabama KKK Rolls Include Politicians, Teachers, Medical Professionals, Military

http://www.addictinginfo.org/2015/09/28/alabama-kkk-rolls-include-politicians-teachers-medical-professionals-military-video/

After eight months of negotiations, a BBC film crew was granted permission to conduct exclusive interviews with members of one of the United States’ most notorious hate groups, the Ku Klux Klan.

Located in rural Alabama, the Loyal White Knights claims to be the largest and most powerful KKK chapter in the country. Leaders of the Klan claim their membership rolls include politicians, teachers, hospital staff and others, saying, “Most of the majority of our people are in the military. We all have our concealed weapons permits.”...

While Klan members refused to give the names of political leaders they claim belong to the Loyal White Knights, it isn’t all that hard to spot them in a crowd. All you need to do is listen for the Nazi propaganda.

The tactic of manipulating people through religion has been used by various hate groups throughout the centuries, but the technique was perfected in Nazi Germany. Hitler understood all too well how that the most efficient way to convince people to perpetrate evil upon their fellow man is to convince them that they’re doing it for God.

That statement is the reason the Feds are interested in and want from the American people; otherwise, the Second is a recognized and individual right asmare all the other rights in the Constitution. In short, the "militia clause" does not condition or modify "the right to keep and bear arms...." It only says what the Feds want from that right, pursuant to its powers in Article 1. This is the interpretation shared by most constitutional scholars, historians, political scientists who have studied the Second.

And the intrpretation of the SCOTUS.

BTW, "well regulated" meant that citizens were to report when called with a weapon suitable for militia service and with the knowledge of how to use it; training was left to the states.

9. Strange, Randy, that the RKBA has been strenghtened so minorities can defend themselves...

using firearms. Surely, you would not want to go back to the Jim (large, black raucous bird) days when blacks were line-itemed out of their states' constitutional protections, including the RKBA. The Deacons for Defense would probably not want to: They had to deal with the KKK.

12. Somehow I wonder if your "concern" here is not always shown in every

situation.

That MAYBE it is convenient to have this particular concern?

I cant prove that without looking; but if I can find hundreds of times where you have posted in the AfAm group and elsewhere showing continual support of BLM and other AfAm issues, then fine.

If not, well...So since I am not willing to take that much time to look, I will just leave it at that.

15. "Not willing to take that much time..." Seems a gun-control mantra...

...about themselves. Perhaps it makes for "convenience."

In the past I have outlined my 50 years of strong-left activism to a couple of doubters, only to have my honesty questioned in direct terms; it's gunz or no gunz to them.

I didn't know AfAm group postings or adherence to BLM issues was the mark of excellence in DU. Since you bring it up, I find (as have many DUers) that discussing racism or sexism in DU to be singularly unproductive. Other places, yes. But not here.

If you have a list of issues of concern to BLM, please list them and I will say "yay" or "nay" to them.

Not that it hasn't been true in the past, and not that it doesn't exist in other forms (e.g., neoConfederate "heritage" groups), but the way that was phrased pinged my "puff-up"-o-meter.

16. Membership for anyone in the military is grounds for discharge
Thu Oct 1, 2015, 01:46 PM
Oct 2015

So I would love to see te Feds take that statement as evidence to go get warrants to sieze the membership list to investigate crimes any military members may have committed by joining.

It wouldn't be a seizure based on attacks on the KKK as an organization, but rather based in the fact that they now admitted that he have allowed and helped servicemembers commit a violation of Article 92 of the UCMJ by violating orders and regulations regarding hate group membership. As such a siezure of membership roles as part of that investigation might pass A Constitutional challenge, especially given their open admission the crime is taking place.

17. Paula Cole sang about this year's ago.

You remember Paula...she sang the theme for "Dawson's Creek."

Lyrics:

Little boy, tries to hide,
From the fire in his backyard.
Burning cross, white cloth,
It's the second time this year.

Hitler's brothers are still alive,
They're wearing everyday disguises.

A woman runs, for asylum,
She's the only one of her kind in this neighborhood.
She knows who they were,
They don't believe a word,
The cops just turn their heads to protect their friends.

Hitler's brothers are still alive,
Their army seems to grow in size,
Hitler's brothers are on the rise,
They're wearing everyday disguises.
...In camouflage or business suits.

Another man, bound and gagged,
Tied upon the railroad tracks.
At nine p.m. the B&M (Boston & Maine)
Rolled across his yellow skin

Hitler's brothers are still alive,
Their army seems to grow in size,
Hitler's brothers are on the rise,
They're wearing everyday disguises.
In camouflage or business suits,
Checkered aprons, combat boots,
Time to let those feelings go,
Hatred only kills your souls
