The Klan’s Call to Violence in Ferguson Blows the Lid Off Its Hypocritical Rebrand

Despite the KKK’s recent attempts to soften its ‘burning crosses, bombing churches’ image, its call to violence against Ferguson protesters exposes the same old racist Klan mentality.

It was only a matter of time before the Ku Klux Klan found a way to insert itself into the exceedingly tense situation in Ferguson, Missouri. As the family and supporters of Michael Brown wait anxiously for a grand jury to decide whether it will indict Darren Wilson, a white police officer, in the killing of the unarmed black teen this August, state and local law enforcement are gearing up for the inevitable protests that will take place if Wilson is not brought to trial.

Though Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has made clear that “violence will not be tolerated,” the fact that he's enlisted three different police departments—equipped with plenty of riot gear—to handle the potential demonstrations (not including the National Guard, which will also be available) suggest that violence is expected. Enter the Klan.

The Traditionalist American Knights of the KKK—a Missouri-based branch of the American white supremacist group—have started handing out fliers around St. Louis County threatening to use “lethal force” against demonstrators if protests become violent.

“You have awakened a sleeping giant,” one of the fliers reads. “The good people of St. Louis County of all races, colors and creeds will not tolerate your threats of violence against our police officers, their families and our communities.”

On MSNBC Wednesday night, Traditionalist American Knights Imperial Wizard Frank Ancona told host Chris Hayes that his group has received hundreds of phone calls from people concerned about “random attacks on whites, D.C. sniper-style shootings,” and threats against police officers' families. The fliers, Ancona explained, are meant to educate people on what rights they legally have to use lethal force in self-defense. He claimed people already “feel much better” about their safety now that the Klan is on the case.

Earlier on Wednesday, Ancona gushed to The Riverfront Times about the positive impact the Ferguson fracas is having on his group’s membership numbers.

“These Ferguson protesters are the best recruiters since Obama,” Ancona told the St. Louis weekly. “Normally we might hear from 10 people a week in Missouri, and now we’re hearing from more like 50 people a week. Sometimes, depending on these news stories, we get 100, 200 calls in a day.”

It’s hardly a shock that a branch of the KKK, a group that was founded on the principles of violence and racism, would seize upon such a racially charged moment to further its agenda. However, back in August, Ancona spoke out against a different KKK group, the South Carolina-based New Knights Empire, for hailing Darren Wilson as a hero and throwing a fundraiser in Missouri on behalf of the cop mere weeks after he shot and killed Michael Brown.

““Personally, I think we need to wait until we see all the facts, all the evidence that’s being gathered,” Ancona told The Riverfront Timest the time, insisting that “The Klan has no interest in” the fundraiser for Wilson. “I don’t want to try to gain or exploit his situation,” he said.

Ancona may not have wanted to associate himself with the South Carolina group’s activities this summer, but since then he's apparently decided he’s cool with exploiting the situation, referring to the Ferguson protesters—mostly members of the city’s large black community—as “terrorists.”

The imperial wizard’s change of heart may seem in line with what we’ve come to expect from the Ku Klux Klan, but it’s a bit of a contradiction to the new, supposedly 'non-racist' approach other Klan groups have adopted recently.

Yes, you read that right. In an apparent attempt at rebranding, some KKK groups, such as the newly-formed Rocky Mountain Knights of Montana, are trying to shake their old-school racist reputations, claiming to recruit members of all race to join in the fight against much hipper evils like the New World Order and immigration.

“The KKK is for a strong America,” John Abarr, who founded the Rocky Mountain Knights, told the Great Falls Tribune earlier this month. “White supremacy is the old Klan. This is the new Klan.”

A longtime, well-known white supremacist, Abarr told the Minnesota paper that he was inspired to create a more inclusive Klan following a meeting with members of the NAACP in Wyoming last year. He also said he’s planning to gather with NAACP and other religious groups for a peace summit next summer.

Not all Klan leaders are as ostensibly open-minded as Abarr, but many are attempting to ingratiate themselves with causes important to Americans of all races, seemingly as a means of recruiting new members. Widespread opposition to illegal immigration, for example, has provided Klan groups across the country, from Texas to North Carolina, with the opportunity to organize protests where they can enlist fellow countrymen and women interested in saving American culture from unwanted foreign influences.

So is the reverse whitewash campaign working?

Don Terry, a senior writer at the Southern Poverty Law Center, doubts it. The SPLC tracks hate groups in the U.S., of which it considers the KKK one—a label Terry doesn’t think any Klan group will be able to shake as long as it is still associated with its hooded, cross-burning namesake.

“If they are interested in changing, why do they continue to call themselves the Ku Klux Klan?” Terry asked. “The name 'Klan' evokes so much terror and emotion, I don’t think any black folks or Jews or gay people are really rushing to go out and join them.”

At its height in the 1920s, Terry noted, the Klan wielded real political influence, boasting a membership upwards of four million. Now there are only around 5-6,000 members nationwide, according to the SPLC.

“They’re shrinking before our eyes,” Terry said. “The Klan is a part of our history, a sad history. People who cling to it are clinging to a discredited past.”

Still, while Terry dismisses any notion that the KKK will ever re-emerge as the powerful force it once was—no matter how good a rebranding campaign it runs or how many issues it tries to glom onto for publicity—he warns against underestimating the influence Klan values can have on so-called lone wolves

“The Klan is really old school but racism is still very much with us,” Terry said. “They have zero influence as a group but that doesn’t mean people who harbor animosities, racism, anti-Semitism, aren’t dangerous individually. You never know how a person is going to be inspired by the Klan.”

Not that it matters too much, but one could wish for a peaceful protest, or even better Klan rally to be completely ignored by public, press, and all other media - they want attention and if they do not get it, they will fade into obscurity, all 500 of the Klansmen currently in US. In this case, protesters gave them media exposure by fighting with them.



Fighting broke out moments after Klan members exited the vehicle. Some of the protesters could be seen kicking a man whose shirt read "Grand Dragon." At some point, a protester collapsed on the ground bleeding, crying that he had been stabbed.

A Klansman in handcuffs could be heard telling a police officer that he "stabbed him in self-defense." Several other people were also handcuffed.

Witnesses said the Klansmen used the point of a flagpole as a weapon while fighting with protesters.

Two other protesters were stabbed during the melee — one with a knife and the other with an unidentified weapon, said Sgt. Daron Wyatt of the Anaheim Police Department.

Brian Levin, director of Cal State San Bernardino's Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, said he was standing near the KKK members when several protesters attacked them with two-by-fours and other weapons.

What's the membership numbers like.

If they were going from a few thousand to a million, you'd be pumping them. But they aren't.

WHHHHHHHAT??????

Half of the members of KKK have joined in the last 3 years and that is not to say there aren't 10 times their ranks that are too chicken to affiliate their shithead views directly with the KKK.

BECAUSE they fear that the KKK is really the FBI looking to entrap and arrest people. One of them told me those exact words.

The Alabama-based SPLC says there’s no evidence the Klan is returning to the strength of its heyday. It estimates the Klan has about 190 chapters nationally with no more than 6,000 members total, which would be a mere shadow of its estimated 2 million to 5 million members in the 1920s.

As of 2016, the Anti-Defamation League puts total KKK membership nationwide at around 3,000. This is an utterly insignificant number and there will always be a few marginal lunatic idiots, courtesy of way how human brain works. I am not sure how we would be able to bring their number to 0, which obviously would be preferable.

SPLC was recently outed as not being exactly trustworthy, I will take Anti-defamation number.

Violence will happen.

It's the oldest trick in the book to justify police violence and end a protest.

In some cases, like Ferguson, the protestors are actually guilty of committing violence, not counting the cold blooded gunning down of someone in the street.

Violence in Watts a couple times too.

But then situations get serious and some abuses actually do get CORRECTED.

I hate to see it, it's not a good idea, but sometimes it works in the long run some good does come out of violence.

Go ahead, shake your finger, say violence is bad, and it is bad, but you can see that Oppression CANNOT stand up to a mobilized population. EVER. That is the simple truth of the situation.

The old chant is absolutely correct:

THE PEOPLE

UNITED

WILL NEVER BE DEFEATED

So that's why we got Fox TV

"The very cannibalism of the counterrevolution will convince the nations that there is only one way in which the murderous death agonies of the old society and the bloody birth throes of the new society can be shortened, simplified and concentrated, and that way is revolutionary terror."

Now you want to say that socialism sucks, then you are talking about something else.

Alarmists want you to panic when the word socialism is used in “Social Democracy.”

That is because the wealthy want EVERY TAX DOLLAR to go to them and not just some of it, sometimes.

Yep. Like Germany, Mexico, Venezuela... pretty much every dollar ends up back in the hands of the very wealthy.

Think how much bank German Landlords are making on the refugees.

40 year old Nurses and their teenage daughters are being kicked out of rent stabilized apartments they've been living in for a decade, into a 1-bedroom, so a bunch of migrants can take over their 2 bedroom. The German Government lifts the rent stabilization, and ends up directly depositing the 30% bigger transfer into the Landlord's account, while guaranteeing all and any damage to the property. Sweet deal for the Landlords!
