The Ku Klux Klan has launched a major recruiting campaign all over the United States in order to stage a fight with the illegal immigrants that are currently being brought in from Mexico by the busload. But the shocking part is that the KKK is saying they are even willing to work with African Americans.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, a black guy wearing a KKK hood won $215,000 in a freedom of speech lawsuit.
The Ku Klux Klan is changing tactics and playing nice with their recruiting methods. The scary guys in the white hoods are using candy in order to entice people to join the KKK. They even have catchy racist slogans like, "Remember: If it ain't white, it ain't right," and "Be a man, join the Klan." The recruitment drive could almost be considered ironically funny, because Imperial Klaliff Robert Jones of the Loyal White Knights is purposefully hitting households at random with their Kandygrams in order to avoid being racist:
"I mean, we can't tell who lives in a house, whether they're black, white, Mexican, gay, we can't tell that. And if you were to look at somebody's house like that, that means you'd be pretty much a racist."Jones also say the Ku Klux Klan is trying to soften its image and represent itself as non-threatening since the KKK is also trying to use the immigration crisis to recruit people to their cause:
"We think our government should step in and do a whole lot more to secure our borders. All our jobs are being outsourced right now, and what jobs are left here, black and white Americans are being forced to have a competition with the Mexicans coming across the border, because they'll do the job cheaper."Surprisingly, some experts may agree with the KKK partially on this topic. The Ku Klux Klan leader's statement happens to agree with a study which there has actually been a net decrease in jobs for native-born American citizens over the last 14 years. This is claimed to be due to the large influx of legal and illegal immigrants, who have taken millions of the available jobs. The KKK rhetoric also references the diseases carried by illegal aliens, which is also unfortunately accurate.
Finally, the KKK leader almost broke the image of the Ku Klux Klan as a violent hate group by suggesting that African Americans and the KKK could work together:
"We're starting to see the whites and African-Americans waking up to this illegal immigration problem. 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."The KKK even met with members of the NAACP this past fall, but reports say the meeting was "awkward," and Klan member John Abarr was uncertain whether the meeting had accomplished anything.
But if you go beyond the surface, the goal of the Ku Klux Klan is certain to raise hackles all over the nation since the KKK's fight against illegal immigrants could potentially become lethal. The KKK is advocating a "shoot to kill" policy for any illegal immigrants caught crossing the Mexican border.
Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center, also believes it's a lie that the KKK would ever partner with blacks:
"That's a completely ludicrous assertion that is utterly false. The idea that black people are somehow flocking to the Klan or the Klan's message because the Klan is critical of undocumented immigration is simply false. It's a claim that is made as part of the Klan's general claim that they're more of a friendly neighborhood watch group that hates no one and is merely proud of white heritage."Are you surprised the Ku Klux Klan is claiming they'd be willing to work with African Americans in order to confront the illegal immigrant crisis? What do you think is the best policy for immigration reform?
