SORT BY Relevancy
The Ku Klux Klan was originally organized in the winter of 1865-66 in Pulaski, Tennessee as a social club by six Confederate veterans. In the beginning, the Klan was a secret fraternity club. (Ku Klux was derived from the Greek "kuklos," meaning circle, and the English word clan.) The costume adopted by its members (disguises were quite common) was a mask and white robe and high conical pointed hat.
According to the founders of the Klan, it had no malicious intent in the beginning. It attracted former Civil War generals such as Nathan Bedford Forrest, the famed cavalry commander whose soldiers murdered captured black troops at Fort Pillow.The Klan spread beyond Tennessee to every state in the South and included mayors, judges, and sheriffs as well as common criminals. The Klan systematically murdered black politicians and political leaders. It beat, whipped, and murdered thousands, and intimidated tens of thousands of others from voting. Blacks often tried to fight back, but they were outnumbered and out gunned. While the main targets of Klan wrath were the political and social leaders of the black community, blacks could be murdered for almost any reason. Men, women, children, aged and crippled, were victims.In Texas, Governor Edmund Davis organized a crack state police unit, 40 percent of whose officers were black. The police made over 6,000 arrests and stopped the Klan. Armed groups of black and whites fought or threatened Klansman in North and South Carolina. The federal government also exerted its influence, empowering federal authorities with the Enforcement Acts of 1870 and 1871. Klan activity ended by 1872 and disappeared until it was revived again in 1915.

Join me as I interview Travis Pierce of the Klu Klux Klan out of Compton, AR.
The original Ku Klux Klan (KKK) formed sometime between 1865 and 1866 in Pulaski, Tennessee. Nathan Bedford Forrest, the first acknowledged Klan leader, took actions to disband the organization in 1869. A resurgence in Klan activity occurred starting in 1915, and states such as Arkansas were home to newly forming Klan groups during the 1920s.
Travis Pierce says the KKK today is different. Is it? What is so different today than the days of old?
Why after all this time are we still being perscuted by the police are we still being lynched today?

The 2006 Warning from the FBI about the infiltration of police departments by the Klan and other racist organizations. Does it explain the rash of murders of unarmed black men? It's a perfect cover and who but a racist could kill a 11 year old kid playing with a toy gun. Also the beat goes on with a twist with black Dane County DA Ismael Ozanne declining to prosecute white Madison, Wisconsin police officer Matt Kenny in the shooting death of unarmed Tony Robinson Jr. who was shot for nothing more than acting erratically. Wisconsin state law requires police shootings are investigated by outside agencies but what should we expect from the state which really isnt an outside agency. And all the other news on The Ron Kelly Show.
The Ku Klux Klan was first formed in 1866, through the efforts of a small band of Confederate Veterans in Tennessee. Quickly expanding from a localized membership, the KKK has become perhaps the most resonant representation of white supremacy and racial terror in the U.S. Part of the KKK's enduring draw is that it refers not to a single organization, but rather to a collection of groups bound by use of now iconic racist symbols -- white hoods, flowing sheets, fiery crosses -- and a predilection for vigilante violence. How many corporations or companys does the KKK have their hands in? If we know that these company's were built by white supremacy why are we supporting them?
That for which we fight is to safeguard the existence of our race, the purity of our blood and the sustenance of our children.
The Jew is the pestilence of the whole earth and the eternal and deadly enemy of the Chosen White Aryan Race of YaHWeH ! Happy shall he be that serves thee as thou has served us. Happy shall he be that takes and dashes thy little ones against the stones. For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch The house of Joseph for a fire and the house of Jacob for a flame and the house of Esau for stubble and they shall kindle in them and devour them and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau forever !

‘Space’ to ‘destroy’: Baltimore’s Mayor gives a gift to to Black Klan rioters; Justice Anthony Kennedy's hopelessly convoluted marriage jurisprudence; The GOP Senate voting to confirm an attorney general who won’t uphold the Constitution isn’t a way to inspire confidence among conservatives; Rogue Democrat prosecutor John Chisholm, union-connected partisan behind Wisconsin's evil "John Doe" intimidations, now suggests that Governor Scott Walker should be prosecutable as a criminal for criticizing the John Doe investigations; Three scenarios for Hillary Clinton, and they all spell crushing defeat; The fall of the House of Clinton, a berrry, berrry scarrrrrry tale of political corruption run amok; and are Democrat insiders starting to panic about Hillary already?
If anyone still wonders, is still confused or even still care about why the Klan still has power, the Holocaust still bears us pain, the Trial of Tears still rings in the ears of Native Americans and slavery still has not been reconciled by a nation, this may just help you understand why. I simply call it the absence of closure because with any event or occurrence, there must be closure in order for the wound to heal and those wounded or effected by it to move on. We have not moved beyond these things because we have gotten no closure to them and now add to this wound more damage caused by the failure to get closure on the Wall Street wreckage of the economy and now the rising number of police involved shootings of unarmed people. Mount St Helen was once a quiet volcano until the heat built up and it blew. These situations must be fixed and the newer ones need to stop before this entire nation blows over.
