A senior Ku Klux Klan official who once defended Dylan Roof’s racist massacre of nine black people is now trying to distance himself from the white terrorist by claiming Roof was a secret government agent.
In an interview with Fox News radio host Alan Colmes, James Moore, Imperial Kludd with the Pelham, North Carolina chapter of the KKK, says the U.S. government “likes to cause racial tension in America,” and sent Dylann Roof to Charleston as a murderous operative “because they hate black people.”
As a source for his bizarre conspiracy theory about the federal government’s secret coordinated attack on black people, Moore cites websites “all throughout the internet.”
Speaking with Colmes, Moore describes black people as being disproportionately prone to violence and criminality. Black Americans are “pedophiles and gangbangers,” Moore says. These are classic arguments embraced by eugenicists with no supporting evidence after decades of failed, sometimes forced, medical trials designed to tease out a biological justification for white supremacy.
Moore is behind the planned KKK protest scheduled to take place at the South Carolina statehouse on July 18.
Colmes expresses visible disbelief that someone who openly professes to hating black people believes the U.S. government is behind an armed, anti-black, neo-Confederate rebellion. Roof embraced the concept of Confederate revival before he opened fire on a historically black church where Martin Luther King once held rallies.
Federal civil servants, meanwhile, swear on application forms they do not support entities that would overthrow the U.S. government by force. The Confederates launched a major war against the U.S. government in the name of preserving black enslavement. U.S. forces defeated the Confederacy in 1865.
Moore segues from making hateful statements about black people to insulting Jews.
Perhaps, Moore muses, Colmes doesn’t understand what “inner city” reality is like, because he grew up in “a Jewish gated community.” Colmes says he did not grow up in a gated community, and asks Moore if he finds the show host’s professed Jewish faith to be bothersome.
“Yeah, it actually does,” Moore replies, citing Jesus Christ as a source.
Colmes notes that, according to the Bible, Jesus Christ was Jewish.
“No he wasn’t,” retorts. “If he was Jewish, the Jews wouldn’t have killed him.”
Colmes correctly states that Moore is using “typical antisemitism” talking points, and asks the Klan leader what religion Jesus Christ adhered to in his lifetime, if not Judaism.
Thus does Moore, without answering the question, launch into an angry rant about Jesus being stoned by the Jews. Moore further alleges Jews killed 60 million people in the Bolshevik revolution. Moore’s statements are famous conspiracies with no basis in truth, rooted in the long debunked propaganda piece with ongoing, wide circulation, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

US foes are goading Trump because they know he’s a ‘blow-hard and full of bluster’: CNN analyst
President Donald Trump walked back from the brink of atrocities last week, from calling off a military strike against Iran to pushing back planned Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids in major American cities.
On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin told anchor Wolf Blitzer how foreign adversaries have been emboldened to challenge Trump — because for all his bombast, they know they are calling a bluff.
"I think Donald Trump is pretty well a known quantity at this point," said Toobin. "I mean, I think people around the world know he's a blowhard, knows he's full of bluster. But that's no reason to get into a war."
New York Times admits they ‘downplayed’ the rape allegation against Trump
On Monday, The New York Times issued a mea culpa for the nature of their coverage of the allegation by advice columnist E. Jean Carroll that President Donald Trump raped her in a department store in the 1990s.
"After an article last week reported the advice columnist E. Jean Carroll's rape allegations against President Trump, some readers accused The Times of downplaying the story," wrote staff editor Laura Takenaga. "Many have written to ask us why we didn't give the allegations more attention on our website and in print ... Some questioned whether the lack of prominence showed too much deference to the president's denials, or whether it even suggested misogyny or an unwillingness to believe a victim's account."
