KKK member posts pictures of woman’s kids on Facebook and threatens them after she voices support for MLK statue

Published

on

The Bartow County Sheriff’s office in Georgia is investigating “terroristic threats” a woman received after a self-proclaimed member of the Ku Klux Klan took issue with her Facebook comments supporting civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The victim read a Facebook comment questioning whether a statue to Martin Luther King Jr. should be taken down because Confederate statues are being taken down. The victim apparently took issue which a “both sides” narrative of racial issues, where a champion for civil rights is equated with people who killed hundreds of thousands in their insurrection to defend slavery.

“Wow. Are we really talking about this? Is this a joke?” she posted in response.

A self-proclaimed klansman proceeded to retaliate by posting pictures of her children and her work address. She reported that “dozens” of threatening direct messages followed.

The victim is white and has biracial children with her black husband.

“One lady messaged me and told me I’d be looking over my shoulder for the rest of my life. One man said, ‘You don’t mess with the Klan, we’ll all come get you,’” she noted.

The county sheriff’s office has assigned an investigator and deputies will be conducting additional patrols around the fearful woman’s home.

“It’s anxiety and paranoia, I mean, I haven’t slept,” she admitted. “I’m constantly looking out of the window.”

“I was in shock…that this is still alive in 2017,” the victim said.

Taking to Twitter the president wrote, "Yesterday was the Radical Left Democrats big Impeachment day.

Published

on

"Promises made, promises kept," goes one of President Donald Trump's main 2020 reelection slogans. Is that true?

Here are some of the key policy hits and misses -- comparing his accomplishments to his promises -- from a tumultuous first term.

- HITS -

Economy:

The economy will be Trump's major selling point.
