A prominent member of the KKK has pledged his support to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 U.S. presidential race. Will Quigg, a grand dragon for the KKK’s California branch who is responsible for KKK recruitment across the Western U.S., had previously thrown his hat in the ring on behalf of Donald Trump, but it appears that he’s switched both candidates and political parties. According to a report by the The Telegraph, the KKK leader has chosen to support Hillary because he says that she has a “hidden agenda.”
“We want Hillary Clinton to win. She is telling everybody one thing, but she has a hidden agenda.”
Quigg refused to go into detail about the “agenda” he attributes to Hillary Clinton, nor would the KKK grand dragon say much more on the subject at all. Rather, he chose to cryptically tell the media that he “cannot reveal [his] sources.”
“It’s my opinion – if you know what I mean, wink, wink. I don’t want her to come back and say I’m slandering her.”
The KKK grand dragon did have a few more “words of praise” for Hillary Clinton to go along with his unexpected endorsement of the Democratic front-runner. He told the press that Hillary is simply “telling everybody what they want to hear” in a bid to get elected President of the United States. The KKK leader said that this is because she’s the wife of former president Bill Clinton, saying that Hillary is “close to the Bushs,” adding that once she’s been elected, “her true colors” are going to become visible for all to see.
Basically, KKK leader Quigg stated that he believes Hillary Clinton is going to do precisely the opposite of what she’s vowed to do over the course of her campaign. According to the KKK grand dragon, Clinton is going to increase border security, and that Hillary is not actually against second amendment rights, despite what she might say to the left during her campaign speeches.
“She’s just our choice for the presidency.”
Just last September, Quigg came out in support of reality TV star Donald Trump on Twitter. When the prominent KKK member was asked about why he had decided to jump ship and throw his support behind Hillary Clinton, a Democrat, he had had a peculiar answer. According to Quigg, he has withdrawn his support for Trump and given it to Hillary Clinton because he “found out about what Hillary Clinton’s main agenda was.”

According to reports, though, at least one person, briefly but profoundly acquanited with Quigg, doen’t believe that the KKK support of Hillary Clinton is legitimate. The tale goes like this. Mr. Quigg recently made some headlines when he was on the wrong end of a beating in Anaheim, California. KKK grand dragon Quigg, 48, and an elderly fellow KKK member were reportedly ambushed by anti-racism protesters during their own White Lives Matter rally.
Quigg and his cohort were beaten with sticks and “sharp objects” and were saved from further injury by a Jewish onlooker, Brian Levin.

A few days later, the KKK grand dragon-turned-Hillary Clinton supporter was seen hobbling from the local police department, where he’d been questioned by detectives regarding the altercation. He was suffering from injuries related to the beating he’d sustained, including fractured ribs, a broken wrist, and a dislocated knee.
He reportedly gave an interview soon after, leading his interviewer to a hidden corner of a Home Depot parking lot so as not to be seen. There, he reiterated his antipathy towards Jews, calling them responsible for “white cultural genocide,” or “race-mixing with whites, making the white blood un-pure.” However, the California KKK grand dragon did offer thanks and gratitude toward his Jewish rescuer personally.
During the interview, he was asked why he no longer supported Donald Trump and why he decided to support Hillary Clinton for president. The KKK leader had a perplexing answer.
“We don’t like his hair. We think it’s a toupee. He won’t do what he says he will do. He says he’s going to build a 20-foot high fence along with border with Mexico and make them pay. How’s he going to do that?”
When Brian Levin, a professor and former New York cop (and the KKK grand dragon’s unlikely hero), was asked if he believed that the KKK leader had changed his allegiance, Prof. Levin was skeptical.
“Based on his past statements, it doesn’t appear highly credible that he has changed his effusive allegiance to Donald Trump. The timing seems suspect. I think this is a function of not wanting to undermine the Trump campaign.”
Levin’s reasoning is pretty sound. As NPR reports, Donald Trump has undergone serious scrutiny for his refusal to publicly disavow prominent KKK associate David Duke. Members of the KKK must have realized that their political endorsements do more harm than good to the campaigns of U.S. presidential candidate. Could that, and not the potential of a toupee, be the real reason that the KKK grand dragon is suddenly supporting Hillary Clinton?
