The headlines are full of talk of Dylann Roof’s manifesto on Saturday, as reported by the Inquisitr. In the 2,444-word long document, Dylann wrote about how he Googled search terms such as “black on white crime” and the Council Of Conservative Citizens website that he discovered. A current Google search of “Council of Conservative Citizens” turns up the website conservative-headlines.com in the number one position.
According to Who Is, conservative-headlines.com was registered by Kyle Rogers on February 1 through GoDaddy.
The Southern Poverty Law Center has a profile of Kyle under their “Extremist Files,” pegging Rogers with a white nationalist ideology. Born in 1977, Kyle is the leader of the Council of Conservative Citizens — notably CCC instead of KKK — and is a man who is described as one who used his web skills to gain buzz for his white supremacist hate group.
On Examiner, Kyle is a Charleston Conservative Examiner who is described as a “conservative activist in South Carolina” who helped organize the South Carolina Tea Party movement. Articles dating back to 2011 with Rogers writing about black on white crime have racked up nearly 1,000 Facebook likes.
The current Google cache of the manifesto reportedly written by Dylann points to the Council of Conservative Citizens being the first website that Roof encountered, and the impact that the white supremacist writings had upon the Charleston killer.
“The first website I came to was the Council of Conservative Citizens. There were pages upon pages of these brutal black on White murders.”
The influence of Rogers upon Roof is clear when examining the writings of both men. In an interview with White Talk Radio Network on January 25, 2014, Kyle is quoted as attributing an astronomically large percentage of crimes to blacks.
“The worst thing you can do is send your kids to a heavily integrated school. My high school was about 10 or 15 percent black, but they committed probably 90-plus percent of the violence and crimes at the school. I can imagine how much worse it would be if the school is over half black.”
In the manifesto being attributed to Dylann, he does the same — writing about his disdain for the suburbs.
“Segregation was not a bad thing. It was a defensive measure. Segregation did not exist to hold back negroes. It existed to protect us from them. And I mean that in multiple ways. Not only did it protect us from having to interact with them, and from being physically harmed by them, but it protected us from being brought down to their level.”
Roof also seems to deny the Middle Passage and the horrors of slavery in the same way that white supremacists teach others to deny the Holocaust, even if some Jewish members who endured the Holocaust and survived — with their tattooed numbers still on their wrists — still live to tell the truth.
“I wish with a passion that n*****s were treated terribly throughout history by Whites, that every White person had an ancestor who owned slaves, that segregation was an evil an oppressive institution, and so on. Because if it was all it true, it would make it so much easier for me to accept our current situation. But it isn’t true. None of it is.”
As reported by the Los Angeles Times, the “CCC” Council Of Conservative Citizens hate group heavily influenced Roof’s writings and thinking. The publication confirms that Kyle is the webmaster behind the CCC website.
