The Klu Klux Klan in Kentucky are recruiting new members by calling to send Muslims “back where they came from.”

Following terrorist attacks in Paris and harsh anti-Muslim rhetoric from the Republican presidential candidates, KKK fliers began showing up all over Campbellsville, including on the front steps of city hall and the police department, according to WDRB.

“We shall rise, we shall fight, we shall stand hand in hand cause we are the Ku Klux Klan,” one flier reads. “We are back in town. Call to join.”

Another flier urges racial segregation, and to send Muslims and Mexicans “back where they came from.”

A woman answering the number posted on the fliers told WDRB that “phones were lit up when people started finding them.”

“There is no reason behind it,” she explained. “It’s just something we came up with for recruitment purposes. We thought it was cute.”

Campbellsville Police Chief Patricia Thompson explained to the station that there was nothing law enforcement could do to stop the recruitment drive.

“They may have had a lot of police officers calling to find out if they’re legitimate, but I don’t think there were a lot of people from Campbellsville calling to be members of the Klan,” Thompson said.

2020 Election

Lincoln Project releases harrowing new video of the future if Trump wins re-election

Published

on

The Lincoln Project, the group of former top GOP strategists seeking to beat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, released another new video on Monday evening.

Unlike other videos, the latest release did not feature Trump saying crazy things. Instead, it is more like a 60-second short film.

It features a mother listening to election night returns. She goes into her son's bedroom and lovingly awakens him.

"Hey honey, you asked me to wake you and tell you what happened in the election," she says.

"Who won?" the child asked.

"Trump," she replied. "Trump won."

‘It’s like Kindergarten’: CNN’s Anderson Cooper tears into Trump’s juvenile attacks on Kamala Harris’ name

Published

on

On CNN Monday, anchor Anderson Cooper played clips of President Donald Trump making fun of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and deliberately mispronouncing her name.

"By the way, you know who's further left than Bernie is Kamala," said Trump in the clip. "She's the most liberal senator in America. Kamala. Kamala. Senator Kamala Harris is a sponsor of the Green New Deal, Biden's running mate, Kamala Harris. You pronounce her name wrong, she will go crazy. Kamala, like a comma. You like Kamala?"

"Obviously, not something he's done once or twice," said Cooper. "It's like Kindergarten, remember? When everyone used to make fun of people's names. It happens again and again and again, much like how, to this day, he still emphasizes President Obama's middle name, Hussein."

Trump has become ‘The Incredible Shrinking President’ as Americans tune him out: Pennsylvania AG

Published

On Monday, Pennsylvania's Democratic Attorney General, Josh Shapiro, hit back at President Donald Trump's threats that he would be "watching" the state for signs of voter fraud.

"What's your response to the president, who made those allegations without any evidence at all in your state?" asked anchor Wolf Blitzer.

"He says he's watching, about the only thing I have seen here in Pennsylvania is that Donald Trump has gone 0-5 in court challenges against us here," said Shapiro. "Court challenges where he has alleged widespread voter fraud, and yet never was able to back it up with a shred of evidence. That's why courts have dismissed these baseless lawsuits that he's filed. Apparently, now that he's lost in court time and time again, he's gone into the public square to spin a tale and tell these lies and attack our governor."
