“At its peak in the 1920s, Klan membership exceeded 4 million people nationwide.”
Want to see some KKK activity? – I live near the “new” Safeway in Petaluma. I work in Rohnert Park and leave Petaluma between 7:15-7:30. I am a pretty typical “gang stalker” target – single older woman. 63, very, very white and I drive a fairly old silver Honda Accord.
Sitting at work – looking out a window, I see more “stupid”, “idiot” KKKers/Cult Rightists than usual. They think their hatred will bother me. Naw. Right versus might. Besides, there are more of you out there who would have nothing to do with such a cult and would have as hard a time as I do swallowing, “kinder, gentler, KKK”. Oxymoron of the first degree.
KULT Right is the term I came up with for Alt Right persons who use KKK “tells”, or participate in KKK like harassment. As far as I am concerned, if you associate with anything the KKK does, you have inherited the KKK history – all the sordid, cowardly, reprehensible, deeds that they have participated in over the KKK’s history. Oh, you have been told that this is a new, kinder, gently KKK. Right. Like the leader who was glad that the lady died who was hit by the driver in Charlottesville.
Conservative is one thing, but you can’t even come up with your own organization. Nope. Some groups decided that white supremacy, even at its ugliest is worth being in bed with the KKK. Harass, torment, ………..it is the way the kinder, gentler KKK works. Best of all, ALL can get in on the action. They are expected to. Look up Stasi tactics and East Germany and also: brighting, vehicular harassment. Sounds impossible right? Not when you can make text groups as large as you want, have someone’s phone GPS to follow, have persons from ALL walks of life with ALL skills.
History Channel – The KKK Legacy
- Its members waged an underground campaign of intimidation and violence directed at white and black Republican leaders.
- For its part, the Ku Klux Klan dedicated itself to an underground campaign of violence against Republican leaders and voters (both black and white) in an effort to reverse the policies of Radical Reconstruction and restore white supremacy in the South.
- At least 10 percent of the black legislators elected during the 1867-1868 constitutional conventions became victims of violence during Reconstruction, including seven who were killed.
- Among the most notorious zones of Klan activity was South Carolina, where in January 1871 500 masked men attacked the Union county jail and lynched eight black prisoners. (Not innocent until proven guilty, not guilty until proven innocent, but guilty because these white people feel they are superior and as a Mob they can 500-8. Most cowardly cowards. Bullies are cowards by definition.)
- After a period of decline, white Protestant nativist groups revived the Klan in the early 20th century, burning crosses and staging rallies, parades and marches denouncing immigrants, Catholics, Jews, blacks and organized labor.
- the organization’s membership crossed class lines, from small farmers and laborers to planters, lawyers, merchants, physicians and ministers. In the regions where most Klan activity took place, local law enforcement officials either belonged to the Klan or declined to take action against it, I bet law enforcement who were to take action would be treated like the Kult Right treats all its victims – with threats and intimidation. Oh, yeah – right. Targets – it is ALL smoke and mirrors.
- Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871………..For the first time, the Ku Klux Klan Act designated certain crimes committed by individuals as federal offenses, including conspiracies to deprive citizens of the right to hold office, serve on juries and enjoy the equal protection of the law
- The civil rights movement of the 1960s also saw a surge of Ku Klux Klan activity, including bombings of black schools and churches and violence against black and white activists in the South.
- ……Klan activity across the South, including the bombings, beatings and shootings of black and white activists. These actions, carried out in secret but apparently the work of local Klansmen, outraged the nation and helped win support for the civil rights cause. In 1965, President Lyndon Johnson delivered a speech publicly condemning the Klan and announcing the arrest of four Klansmen in connection with the murder of a white female civil rights worker in Alabama. The cases of Klan-related violence became more isolated in the decades to come, though fragmented groups became aligned with neo-Nazi or other right-wing extremist organizations from the 1970s onward. In the early 1990s, the Klan was estimated to have between 6,000 and 10,000 active members, mostly in the Deep South.

By the way – hacking a computer is a pretty bit crime. Is it possible to hack someone’s blog? I can no longer put tags or use categories. I wonder what the crime is for that – people from EVERY walk of like with EVERY skill imaginable.
