Not too long ago CNN aired a segment on how the Ku Klux Klan was attempting to rebrand itself as a softer, kinder racist organization. The terrοr group that wreaked havoc on blacks throughout the history of this country has been dropping fliers throughout the U.S. and now that those campaigns have been met mostly with revulsion, the KKK is adding a little sweetness to the seal the deal.
FOX Carolina reports that residents in Seneca, South Carolina woke up on Sunday to bags of candy in their driveway attached to a KKK campaign flier. “Save our land, join the Klan” read the fliers.
The number listed on the flier directs callers to the Klan hotline where a voicemail says “Be a man join the Klan! Illegal immigration is destroying America,” and advises listeners to “always remember if it ain’t white, it ain’t right. White power.”
Robert Jones, the Imperial Klaliff of the Loyal White Knights, spoke with FOX Carolina about the fliers, saying that the KKK recruitment was part of a night ride which happens three times a year. He went on to say that the KKK has been getting as many as 20,000 calls per day since they dropped the literature with many people interested in joining.
Many residents in the area, however, were upset over finding the KKK literature in their yards.
“[I] talked to several neighbors. They were very angry, very upset, very ashamed at the same time – that this exists…….ashamed to face our neighbors that do not have the same color skin that we do,” said one resident who did not want to be identified.
Jones said that this sort of recruitment drive is nothing new for South Carolina so no one should be surprised.
