SMH… The sad part is that they might be right, we have bigger enemies than them these days.
Klan Fliers Left Around Virginia Neighborhoods Claim They’ve Gotten A Bad Rap
According to Times Dispatch reports:
The Ku Klux Klan papered several Chesterfield County neighborhoods this week with fliers proclaiming it is nonviolent, not a hate group and not “enemies of the colored and mongrel races.”
According to Chesterfield police spokeswoman Elizabeth Caroon, police received reports of the fliers in the Bexley, Chester Grove, Longmeadow and Kendale Acres subdivisions.
“The thing that really gets me is that (people are) saying we’re teaching our children to hate people just because of their race, creed and color, and that’s a complete lie and falsehood,” said Frank Ancona, president and imperial wizard of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
Ancona, who is based in Missouri, says the group has been dealt a bad hand by the media and the Union government after the Civil War. He said that it’s actually a fraternal organization that has specific values, including preserving the constitution as written and traditional Christian beliefs.
Ancona said he doesn’t know who put out the fliers or how many members are in Chesterfield. The organization’s website has a dozen fliers that members can print up and hand out in areas they believe are ripe for recruitment, he said.
One of those fliers says “many people have experienced the blacks firsthand” and have seen the “savagery and animalism in many of these people.”
The flier that went to Chesterfield residents says the organization’s mission is “exalting the Caucasian race and teaching the doctrine of white supremacy.”
“That does not mean that we are enemies of the colored and mongrel race, but it does mean that we are organized to establish the solidarity and to realize the mission of the white race,” that flier reads.
Ancona said some misconceptions come from the fact that the organization is open exclusively to white, native-born Christians and that it has rituals and ceremonies that mysterious because they are known only to Klan members.
“The secret is not that we have this plot or anything … we’ve gotten this bad reputation,” Ancona said.
Nice try. But we’re not buying it!
