The KKK will hold a Labor Day cross burning – and they want supporters to bring their children

Published

on

The KKK wants its supporters to spend Labor Day weekend with them, according to its website — and they really want their children to come too.

The notorious hate group will be holding its “National Congress” in Harrison, Arkansas. Attendees are expected to wear “casual business attire.” Scheduled “fun” will include ping pong, foosball, folk dancing and a “cross lighting. The light of Christ dispels the darkness.”

The event organizers urged supporters not to leave young children behind, but bring them for some early indoctrination and fear mongering.

“Your children are the target! Those that hate our heritage and faith have targeted America’s children,” the event page says. “Schools are indoctrination centers for homosexuals and race-mixers. Even our churches aren’t safe. Television is full of filth!”

Accommodations for children, including a nursery for infants and toddlers, will be available.

“If you have children still living at home we urge you not to neglect this important opportunity to help prepare your children. We will have a wonderful program to help entertain as well as teach them old time values of our forefathers,” the website urges.

The KKK is the nation’s oldest and most notorious hate group, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. It is known for its murderous campaign of terror against black Americans throughout the nation’s history of fraught race relations, particularly in the South. Burning crosses have been their trademark visual threat.

The group has made itself more visible since accused shooter and racist Dylann Roof gunned down nine unarmed African-American churchgoers in Charleston on June 17. The group praised Roof for the massacre, calling it a “victory.”

They launched a recruitment campaign that week, leaving bags with candy and flyers in people’s yards in at least six states, including California, Kansas, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, and Georgia.

This month the Klan will holding a training camp to “train future leaders who can return to their communities with the tools to become actively involved in this struggle for our racial redemption.”

On July 18, they also plan to rally in South Carolina against the likely removal of the Confederate flag from the statehouse, Politico reports.

Since the Charleston shooting, a string of black churches burned in the South and three were attributed to arson.

Veteran Republican operative shames the GOP — and warns they won’t get rid of Trumpism ‘for at least a generation’

Published

on

Stuart Stevens is a veteran Republican campaign operative from five presidential races. When he spoke to PBS's Judy Woodruff Wednesday, he lamented the GOP failed the moral test it was presented with Donald Trump.

"Well, I think there's been two strains in the party. Call it an Eisenhower strain going back to the '50s and a McCarthy strain," Stevens said, recalling when the GOP would talk about expanding their party and bringing in more African-American voters. "Now we don't even hear any talk anymore of a big tent. And we seem to have settled into a very comfortable white grievance identity."

Published

According to Lukens, he told those questioning how to go about getting the British Open at Trump Turnberry, and Lukens said he was clear that it was "unethical" and "possibly illegal." Still, Trump's cronies persisted.

He explained that when the inspector general did the investigation they went back to Washington to write up the report and that it should have been released by now, but it obviously has not. Today, the acting IG, who took over just three months ago, abruptly resigned.
