The KKK is Having a Membership Drive. You Should Join.

KKK Rally signApparently the KKK is trying to increase their membership, and they’re using Obama’s second term to do it. At first it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense since the very fact of Obama’s presidency means we’re living in a post-racial society, so we don’t need the KKK.

Then again, it’s fairly apparent that Obama plans to enslave whitey in his second term, so you better rise up against your Negro oppressors before I pick one of you to be my butler.

    @Another Halocene Human: But they would like very much to. I spend far too much time at their sites. They are convinced that the overwhelming majority of whites bitterly hate and resent being under the thumb of the Kenyan usurper, and that all us white folks will rebel and have a fine Day Of The Rope if only they can get their message past the gatekeepers of the Liberal/Jew (depends on which bunch of WP folks you’re talking to, and this is the cause of a huge schism in The Cause at the moment) Media.

    This is an interesting and not unforeseen development. The Klan resurgence in the 1920s was largely an attempt to take white supremacy mainstream, and they did pretty well for a while until the usual suspects started lynching at will and the damned liberal media had the nerve to photograph and distribute the results. They’re hoping, like all people without imagination do, that they can repeat the actions of a century ago and that it will work in a society that’s 100 years older, smarter, and more different from the world of the 1920s than downtown New York is from a village in Afghanistan.

I’d be perfectly happy being the booze master of somebody’s household, especially if the alternative was to work in the fields.

    @Chris: I think the answer to the first part, and partly to the second, is that the Klan had already shit the bed big time by the time the economy went over the cliff.

    I don’t think the Dealers made any concessions to the WP folks, don’t think that was needed. And I don’t think that people were rewarding liberals for making the economy better – the liberals of the time didn’t much give a shit about black folk either. I think you nailed it with the third guess: a lot of “elites” had glommed on to the Klan movement back in the twenties, including Wilson himself IIRC, and I think that hurt an already dead movement even worse.

    Plus I’m betting that a lot of people didn’t have time for that horseshit, hard to make the meetings when you’re trying to scrounge enough food so that your family doesn’t starve another day. Had the government embraced them as a partner, started passing out food at Klan rallies like they did at the Nazi party rallies, that would have been a different story entirely. But the Klan was still a creature of the South, one that had lost almost all its power by the time FDR got into office, and let’s face it, FDR had very little use for Southern politicians, most of whom were trying to do nothing more than co-opt the New Deal into making some money on the side for themselves.

But I’ve got to get legislation passed by Congress to save America. The southerners by reason of the seniority rule in Congress are chairmen or occupy strategic places on most of the Senate and House committees. If I come out for the antilynching bill, they will block every bill I ask Congress to pass to keep America from collapsing. I just can’t take that risk.

    A Riverside County judge on Monday found a 12-year-old boy guilty of second-degree murder in the shooting and killing of his father, neo-Nazi activist Jeffrey Hall, as he slept on the family’s living room couch.
    __
    He also was found guilty of a weapons charge, with the judge determining he knew right from wrong.
    __
    The youngster, just 10 years old when he pulled the trigger in May 2011, was charged as a juvenile and can be held in custody only until he is 23.

    I guess the Klan was a little more inclusive at times:

    Though Springfield was segregated and a hotbed of Ku Klux Klan activity, the Jewish population seems to have been hardly touched by anti-Semitism between the wars. Several of our respondents told stories about their fathers being asked to join the Klan by Klansmen oblivious to their organization’s anti-Semitism.

    I think we need to infer a bit more – dad was apparently abusive, so a divorce would have raised the specter of him being stuck with dad and not having a stepmom around for protection:

    Hall won full custody when the boy was 3.

    It’s not so much that the kid knew right from wrong as that he likely couldn’t discern a likely reality from the bullshit that his dad filled his head with, and which a court unwittingly gave credibility to. The kid was already a dependent of the state, but he’d have to expect that eventually he’d wind up back with dad.

    @Forum Transmitted Disease:

    From what I know, the relationship between New Dealers and other economic liberals on the one hand and white power on the other was firmly embedded in “it’s complicated” territory. FDR and his administration mostly stuck to “don’t rock the boat” but wasn’t trusted by the Southern elites anyway.

    Huey Long, though not a New Dealer, is another interesting case. His relief efforts went to black people as well as white people, which pissed off the Klan and prompted them to run attack ads portraying him with his arms around black people promising them free rides (as Martin points out, things never change…) But he also partnered up with Coughlin and Smith in the Share Our Wealth movement, which eventually went full-bore white supremacist.

    Independence Park that will provide its own food and energy,

    So either they’ll use green energy, which they hate or they’ll build it on top of a coal mine. Coal mining is not a fun job. I’d guess that most of the people that would want to live there picture themselves as guards forcing others to do the mining.

    Absolutely correct. FDR refused to back the anti-lynching laws that northern liberals had introduced to Congress because he needed the southern members to support the New Deal:

    He’s worse than Bush! He sold us out!

    @Certified Mutant Enemy:

    Does Beck plan to actually live with his family in his haven of freedom? Somehow I can’t picture this happening even if he got it going. He doesn’t look like a brave sort to me and I can’t imagine him plunking his family to live in what he knows very well would be a nest of cuckoos.

    @Anya:

    True.

    Like I said above – nowadays right-wingers with violent impulses who want to join that kind of organization join the local militia group.

    Always thought the militia movement was basically a rebranding effort for an age in which Klan and Nazi symbology had become noxious (kinda like the teabaggers being an attempt to rebrand the GOP after eight disastrous years).

    @J. Michael Neal: And look at everything he gave away! He didn’t actually repeal any old laws to make the bigots happy, he simply didn’t try to pass new laws that congress would have never passed any way. This surely makes him history’s greatest monster.

    @MaryRC: Mary, I know, I tell that story to my class. It didn’t end the Klan, but it did scare off the casual racists that joined because, you know, business contacts, and my buddy joined, etc, etc. It left the hard-core intact, but much smaller..

    I take umbrage at your use of the term “Whitey”. Guess its OK for you people to use it, it’s good to know in case I need to use a racial slur in the future.

    So as a white guy, I can throw around the “N” word as easily as The angry black lady throws around words like whitey, cracker, etc.? Or is there a double standard that I’m unaware of?
