We're seeing a lot of posts about the KKK being in Ferguson or North Carolina etc. | lets try to get the facts straight because too many mixed stories pop up via social media... Let us know what you know...
Apparently KKK members are walking around Ferguson and burning Crosses tonight. This and apostfrom one of the blogs I follow is all the evidence that I could gather on the subject, seeing as the police are not allowing news stations to record the matter. I’m really hoping that the information is false at this point but still I want all the people in Ferguson to stay safe and know that your in my prayers.
If anybody has some extra information on this matter, please add on to the post.
Citing the issue of child arrivals through the U.S.-Mexico border, about 100 members of the Ku Klux Klan held a protest in North Carolina over the weekend to drum up support against immigration. The event was part of the organization’s latest campaign strategy to recruit new members.
Almost 63,000 unaccompanied migrant children, mostly from Central America, have come across the southern U.S. border since October 2013 and the KKK has increasingly used that situation to hold anti-immigrant protests. The KKK held a private rally at a member’s home in the South Carolina city of Abbeville last weekend, while 300 immigration advocates counter-protested about an hour away in Greenville, S.C. And last month, the group left fliers andbags of candy on driveways in South Carolina, urging residents to call a “Klan Hotline” to disseminate hateful anti-immigrant rhetoric. The organization, fast dwindling in members and funded by nativist groups, has seen membership sharply drop since 2010.
The KKK began targeting immigrants in July as part of its newest recruiting tool that they hold three times a year. In spite of having a website that still features cross-burning and hood-wearing, the Klan has even tried to reach out to black people with its anti-immigrant message. “We’re starting to see the whites and African-Americans waking up to this illegal immigration problem,” Robert Jones, Imperial Wizard of the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, said to Vice. “We’re starting to reach out more to the African-American community and talk to them about the same issues, and they’re agreeing with the Klan that illegal immigration needs to stop.”
