Obama Presidency 'Ignites Ku Klux Klan'


www.news.com.au

ONLINE registrations for white supremacy group the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) have significantly increased following Barack Obama's presidential win, a former KKK leader says.

"They (KKK) actually sent me an email just the other day and were telling me that Barack Obama was the best thing that ever happened to them and they're excited and happy because their membership is growing larger than it ever has," he said.

A KKK resurgence in the US? As noted above, all they needed to boost their numbers was for a black President to be elected. So does this mean that existing Klansmen are happy to see Obama elected? I thought these guys had largely gone by the way and the only existing members were the most extreme, inbred back-country folk that existed in places like that in Deliverence.

Interesting to note that the Klan are actively recruiting in New Zealand as well.

I remember seeing posters for the Klan here in Australia back in the late '80's, early '90's. Never really took off.

Well,
The laws of nature dictate equilibrium.
I guess the laws of stupidity dictate equilibrium as well.

It didn't take a president to rob the people to stand up
It didn't take presidents to promote war in their name to stand up
all it took was a colored man for them to stand up

Americans truly are the most narrow-minded people on earth

Everyday I see more reasons making that claim true
specifically white caucasian americans, wherein the lot of them forgot they were the first illegal immigrants.

Unbelievable, such mass stupidity

I find the KKK stupid.To say the least.
People should not judge Obama upon the color of his skin.
Yes sure for certain there are many African American racist groups that use the stupidity of his skin color to gloat about.
But the fact is he is Harvard law, hes no different than the rest of them.
Most people who support Obama who aren't racist, support him because of his policies.
It is true enough that its a historic milestone in America's history for someone of African heritage to be able to be President.
But this just celebrates the demise of racism, and the uprising of freedom for all people.
All people to be judged upon there own merits, not there class color or culture.
All these people who are joining the KKK because they don't want an African President, are undemocratic and resemble more socialist Nazi's than Americans.

I don't know if this is true or not.

- It could be wishful thinking on his part.

- He could just be saying it for free advertising.

- The ON LINE registrations could be pranks by people or could be people who were upset and just registered to vent steam.

I really don't think their numbers are vastly growing because of Obama being elected.

I'll believe it when the actual meetings and revenue grow. THEN I'll believe it.

Otherwise - This is just trusting the words of a nutter at face value.
I'm not doing that.

How can you judge all Americans based on the actions of a select minority (aka Klansmen).

Your hypocrisy is unbelievable and your caustic attitude towards all Americans is unwarranted.

Frankly, you are as big a racist as the KKK.

And on top of that, you claim to be ATS' most neutral member... yah right, good one.

Not sure how true this is, a lot of racists I know voted for Obama. Some of them think he would further their cause by screwing things up. Others said he was the better pick.
The Klan hasn't had any power since the late 1970s anyway, Morris Dees will just find a way to sue them and make a profit off of them anyhow so its probably a moot point if they are recruiting.

I find it sad you can be so narrow minded yourself, not all the folks in the USA are as narrow minded as you believe. Their are 300 million of us over here so your just going to assume that out of that number all white people are dumb and racist? Grow UP!!!!!

It pisses me off that people over here won't let this crap go. No one today can be held responsible for what happened back in the day when slavery ran rampant. Not every white person is a selfish, stupid, self-righteous bigot with nothing better to do then belittle others but it appears that if you were an American you would be huh?

I'll bet you’re at fault for all the crap going wrong in your country huh? No? Your government does crap whether you like it or not? People have opinions that you don't like and maybe sometimes an individual from your own country will do or say something that embarrasses you as an Aussie?

I suppose that's all your fault as well because you’re a narrow minded Australian huh? Haven't you got anything else better to add to this post then flaming an entire country for the wrong doings of a select group of individuals?

I find it sad in this day and age that people still form these groups because their so scared of change and things that are different that they promote acts of violence and hate toward others. When are people going to grow up and learn that we are all from the same planet and the only way for the planet to flourish is to work together instead of causing wars out of acts of hate, greed or violence?

Shame on your narrow minded views of others. When enough of the people over here that are worried about whether they can feed their families or even shelter them wake up and have finally had enough we might be able to fix this country so how bout your worry about your own country and the problems you have and maybe be just a tad less judgmental of others. Every little bit helps on the long run, fight the stupidity and hate and just get along.

We had the same thing happen to us Aussies in the Racist Violence Mars Australia Day Celebrations thread. We had all sorts of people coming in there and basically accusing our entire country of being racists when in fact it was the actions of about 25 drunken louts.

point of order, seems to be an accepted stereotype that "inbreeding" is associated with poor white areas of America, which is not actually the case, and in fact, taking Britain as an example the highest proportion of genetic deformities due to inbreeding with close relatives is among the Pakistani Muslim community, but that wouldn't be an acceptable stereotype now would it.....

Anybody with half a brain could forsee that electing Obama would cause a spike in KKK (and other racist clubs) membership. It was a given.
Who cares? The more attention they bring to themselves, the more ignorant they appear. Maybe it's a good thing.

To be surprised and shocked now that it's happening, to me, is either intentional over-dramatization or extreme short-sightedness.

I'm sure we're also seeing a resurgence in volunteerism, positive "cross-race" relations, and many other "good" things as well, due to Obama being elected. Why don't we focus on these positives instead of pointing our big stupid red flags at a (relatively small) bunch of bullys?

F the KKK, just be excellent to each other.

I don't think it is blacks being "lynched" in any event, given the inter racial murder and rape stats!- who lynches who again exactly!

Obama's presidency didn't ignite the KKK!

They ignited themselves simply due to the narrow minded, low brow, red necked, cousin having, banjo playing nut cases that they are! I mean, they take pride in walking around in dunce hats and Halloween fancy dress. I think that says it all.

Further more, if they are all about white pride and all that crap, then why don't they show their faces? These guys are wimps... weak dogs that gain strength from roaming in packs!

you speak in stereotypes, you need to get up to speed- whites are no more prone to inbreeding than any other race, and see above, the British example shows Pakistanis are, how does that fit with your world view.

As for "wimps", I am no KKK supporter but I daresay the white pride movement has their fair share of well built, fighting trained dudes who could kick your ass (same goes for black pride movements, asian pride etc)

No my friend, you've shown me your hand. Me thinks thou dost protest too much! ... and you wouldn't have a clue who could or couldn't kick my ass.

Regardless of your cries of stereotyping, I firmly stand behind my original comment. They've earned every word and more. They are an indictment on western society and an embarrassment to white people!

Just so you know, I am white...

I love how white pride movements are always generalized as a "bunch of inbred, banjo pickin', sister humpin', rednecks." Yet if I called members of the Black Panthers a bunch of "dead eyed, welfare, crackhead, porch monkeys." I would be branded a bigot.

And I am certain I am risking being banned just for making the point! Rednecks is just as bad as calling a black a porch monkey. Of course, it's not on par with the N word but cracker or honkie dang sure is!

Save your indignation folks, blacks were slaves for 400 years. Yet the Moors, the Nubians, and a host of other Afro-centric cultures enslaved Europeans for over a millenia in one fashion or another.

I don't care about the race crap, I care about all this PC crap that says I have to be guilty for being of European descent. Horse feathers....
