The KKK: Its history and lasting legacy

The KKK: Its history and lasting legacy 1


Since Christmas Eve in 1865, membership in the Ku Klux Klan ignited and multiplied three separate times, in each instance enacting brutal violence and terror — but the Klan's power never held for long. Though only 2 dozen Klan groups exist today, its continued importance lies in a far more elusive and sinister legacy.

      @Slique Vic you literally handed me the high ground like it was hot potato 🥔 💀

    • The KKK? The Republicans Party!!

    • When looking back at all the terrible things African Americans have had to endure, and still endure to this day, how can you say god wants joy for them with a straight face? Assuming a god even exists, joy seems to be the exact opposite of what he wishes for them.

      @Vicky P educate yourself on who created kkk. The democrat or the republican party. But they are counting on the ignorance of the people. Kkk’s legacy is still in the democratic party. Both Hillary and Biden praised late democrat senator Byrd, known KKK grand wizard and KKK recruiter, as their mentor at his funeral in 2010. It is the democrat party who still wants to keep the African Americans mentally enslaved at the modern plantations, the inner cities ghettos. They want to keep them unemployed and without any prospects, kill any ambition and motivation in them for prosperity, keep them dependent on government handouts, only useful for votes to keep the democrats in power forever. In fact this is specifically what LBJ stated, another known racist who only signed off on the civil rights act of 68 because there was no other way around it anymore. The democrat like hiding all of these facts and brainwashing the people into their big lie that supposedly there was a switch between the parties in the 60’s. Wrong. Only 1 democrat senator switched republican and the the rest of the racist democrats stayed and died as racist democrats. And although true that there are some racist among the republicans too nowadays, majority are not. They want freedom and equal opportunity for all Americans regardless of race and origin, while the republican party itself, the party of Lincoln still stands for the same principles that Lincoln stood for, nothing has changed there. The democrats are hiding their legacy of KKK and racism, and as I stated still want to keep the African Americans uneducated, poor and mentally enslaved, lie to them and only use them for votes. And many of us are waking up, starting to vote republican, but the plan of the democrats now is to replace those votes with new votes from the illegal immigrant. Peace.

      Lincoln was a progressive, the region never changed the label only.

    Jesus the way I believe Him will be very sad with all this.

    • Why would jesus be sad about this? I mean, it’s all going according to his plan, no? Don’t you believe that jesus knows everything that was ever done, and everything that will ever be done from here till eternity? He knew the KKK was going to be created and did nothing to stop it. He knew these racists where using his name to justify their actions and did nothing to stop it. Why is that?

      Why didn’t he come down and say “hey, cool it guys. Black people don’t deserve this.” Why did he let it go on for so long, why does he continue to let it go on today?

    • @dayone no he didn’t. We Create history not God or Jesus

    • @Diego A So what if we create history and not god? God knows everything, he knows the history we are going to create.

    • @dayone no he does not. He put us in charge of our own fate

    • @Diego A Yes, I know. I understand what you’re saying. You don’t have to keep repeating yourself. What I’m saying, is that regardless of the choices we make, regardless of the history we create, god still knows everything that is going to happen from this second till eternity.

      Or are you saying that god is not all knowing? Are you saying that the all knowing, supreme ruler of the universe, creator of heaven and earth, the god of all gods, doesn’t know what is going on down here? Are you saying that god can be wrong? Are you saying that god can be surprised by our actions? If that is what you’re saying, what kind of a feeble, impotent god do you worship?

      @Material Girl girl this should be used as the example of why Democrats want to take our guns away. Thank you for sharing.

    • @Pat Orsban It’s like you’re purposely missing the point that Antifa are anti-fascists, that’s where their name comes from, and those that they hate, are fascists AKA: nazis, and hating nazis is perfectly fine in my book. In fact we should all hate nazis and fascist ideologies in general.

    • @dayone its like, you have no clue.
      Just because klantifa calls themselves anti fascists, when those vermin are just as evil and violent as fascists, is no reason to believe them.
      Did you not even bother reading my post?
      The democrats other klan called themselves Christian soldiers, and they were not.
      The old klan is just as evil as the new klan, and the democrats are once again protecting them from arrest.
      Hell, Harris was helping those violent vermin bail when they occasionally got busted. The leftist media refuses to call out their weekly violence. Demented Joe thinks they are the democrats cheerleaders.
      This us history, repeating itself.

      Tell that to the victims’ families and the those that have lost their businesses. Almost every city in the US has seen BLM riots costing billions of dollars….and you bring up ONE incident in which ANTIFA WERE involved. Wow. You just cannot compare the two. BLM is a violent, marxist organisation who are open about destabilising the entire country. Meanwhile its founders are laughing at mugs like you from their million dollar mansions paid for by your donations.

      @baked nacho
      There were 26 Black Republicans running for Congress in 2020. But you call them Uncle Tom and even white Supremacists. Shame on you.

      First black congresman, first female congressperson, first latino… ALL REPUBLICAN. First female Supreme Court justice Sandra day O’Connor Republican.
      The ONLY sitting black Supreme Court justice – Republican.
      Republicans also fought hard and gave the nation the 13th amendment to the constitution (abolition), the 14th amendment to the constitution (equal citizenship), the 15th amendment to the constitution (voting rights for ALL men) & the 19th amendment to the constitution (voting rights for ALL women). Republicans championed the 1964 civil rights act, the 1965 voting rights act to enforce the 15th amendment, the 1968 housing rights act. Always republicans. My family. We’re all still right here. Where YOU go?

      You’re in the wrong party.

      Democrats have denuded the accusation of racism of any seriousness or sting. You belittle, trivialize and minimize the very real pain, misery and struggle of those who have suffered under the lash of actual racism.

      Democrat Party: the party of slavery, Jim Crow, the klan, fatherless homes and marrying black women to the state (the new slavery of dependence). Selling people on their victimhood all day every day. Blaming anyone and everyone other than taking a good long and hard look at the man in the mirror. Lowering standards, telling black men that they can’t compete on a level playing field. Reenforcing this lie day in and day out. You’re the real racists in society. Indelible shame upon you and your unforgivable party.

      Save your SOUL and walkaway from the Democrat Party. The party of lies, deceit, racism, revisionist history, slavery, Jim Crow, the Klan, looting, rioting and endless amounts of garbage. STOP LETTING THE LEFT DO THIS TO AMERICA!

  14. These Hill Breeds are now Doctors, Lawyers, Judges, Police, Nurses, even employees/managers of your local fast food restaurants. ‘A birth of a nation’ depicts Blacks as a threat, but look at the vile acts these Billies have committed since they stepped on American soil. They have even skewed statistics to favor their narrative.

    • Yeah they’re called democrats. Nothing changed but the uniform

      @Jordan Tuey smooth. historically illiterate, but smooth. the kkk and their sympathizers have always existed on the conservative end of the spectrum and hailed mainly from the south, regardless of the party name. in other words, it’s always the conservative party that houses the racists and hate groups.

  18. My kids & I were on a vacation (can’t remember the state but we were at some waterfront)
    One late evening, I decided to go for a walk along the water on this walk path. As I come around this bend, I see this large gathering/big group in all white with something that resembled like “coneheads”. I FREAKED OUT & ducked behind this bush or something like that. I frantically looked for my glasses. (I’m damn near blind)
    I started to get up to look………. it was bunch of small tables with folded up umbrellas; it semi draped over the tables.
    I was thanking God that nobody saw me or with me. Felt dumb af! Told myself I needed to stop smoking.. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤣🤣🤣

    When I was in high school, I answered an ad in the back of a magazine. I was obsessed with catalogs, and got every one I could find. It was for a catalog of “novelty items and collectibles,” $1. I put a dollar bill and the order form in an envelope and waited. What I got back was a home-made monthly newspaper for a local chapter of the KKK, from somewhere in the midwest. It was written by a barely literate white supremacist who didn’t give a thought to grammar or spelling, supposedly an adult. It was full of the most racist, most ignorant rantings that I had ever read. I thought there was no way it was real. Even the commentary section in the back was so poorly worded and written that it had to be a joke. But it wasn’t. It was full of letters from people who were so thankful for the paper, so happy to have someone reinforce their beliefs, they were sending in every extra penny they had to help support the cause. I’ve been a grammar nazi since kindergarten. So I wrote them a letter telling them how utterly ignorant they sound to anyone with an elementary school education, correcting everything I found in their paper. Then I asked them to stop sending it to me. They actually printed my letter in their next issue! And the writer explained to everyone how he went through and corrected all my mistakes so I wouldn’t look too stupid in front of everyone. It took almost a year to make them stop sending me their garbage. I brought some into my English class, and we had so much fun with them. The teacher even read some articles aloud to the class, then we tore the writers to pieces, laughing the whole time. Anyway, I just wanted to say that they are always out there, even when we think they’re gone, or scared to show their faces in decent company. I’m afraid there will always be a Klan.

      Hello grammar nazi. You would probably have a field day with me because I made it through 13 years of school and graduated and never learned to punctuate. It’s not my fault I just kept getting pushed to the next grade. I didn’t realize how bad it was until I met my husband. That was 35 years ago and I still don’t know how to properly punctuate. I blame the public education system.

    • Thank you for sharing your experience…KKK are dangerous,it TERRORIST organization that must be stopped…🙏🙏
