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.

Published

New York prosecutors are showing they're serious about the look into President Donald Trump's finances out of concern for fraud.

The New York Times reported Wednesday afternoon that this is part of the year-long legal battle between Trump and the Manhattan district attorney Cy Vance.

A subpoena was previously issued for Trump's tax returns last year, but Trump fought it all the way to the Supreme Court, where he was told to comply with subpoenas and hand over the documents.

Published

President Donald Trump hasn't cared about how much things cost in the past, but suddenly he decided he cares about the hefty dollars he has cost the American taxpayer with security for his adult children who work for him and for his many vacations.

During his press briefing Wednesday, Trump said that hosting his GOP convention speech at the White House would be less expensive and that if he was supposed to travel somewhere it would ultimately cost taxpayers a lot of money.

Trump: ‘I’m doing the country a big favor’ with my conspiracy theories about voter fraud

Published

on

At Wednesday's White House briefing on coronavirus, President Donald Trump was once again asked about his conspiracy theories about mail-in ballot fraud, in light of his move to sue the state of Nevada to stop an expansion of the practice.

When confronted with his previous lie that Nevada isn't checking signatures, Trump doubled down, saying it would be "physically impossible" to verify the ballots. He then repeated, for the third day in a row, his complaints about the New York primary process — and when a reporter pointed out to him that the delays in ballot reporting isn't evidence of fraud, he replied, "well, you're reading a different newspaper than me." He added that "I'm doing the country a big favor" by talking about these issues.
