Well, this may be the most amusing diversity initiative we’ve seen in a while. Jon Abarr, a member of the Montana KKK is apparently recruiting for a more inclusive group:
“The KKK is for a strong America,” Abarr told the Tribune. “White supremacy is the old Klan. This is the new Klan.” Abarr says that his views on race have been evolving, and that he is prepared to walk away from his decades of work with white supremacist organizations in Montana and Wyoming. This new Klan, Abarr said, will dedicate itself to fighting the federal government and its attempts to establish a “new world order” under a single, worldwide government.
Response from the Klan, not surprisingly, has been skeptical:
“That man’s going against everything the bylaws of the constitution of the KKK say,”said Bradley Jenkins, imperial wizard of the United Klans of America to the Tribune‘s Kristen Cates. “He’s trying to hide behind the KKK to further his political career.”
If there is one group that prides itself on lack of diversity, it’s these guys. You don’t want to lose what’s special about you, do you, you special snowflakes?
