There is a new hate group in town—and it is slightly less hateful than its parent.
For every new generation, there is a level of acceptance that its parents could not achieve. For Generation X, it was civil rights. For millennials, that fight is LGBTQ rights.
So, why should a hate group be any different?
The KKK is perhaps one of most notorious hate groups in the United States. Focusing on white supremacy, this scared, white men’s club has terrorized minorities since its inception in 1865. However, this message is becoming harder to sell to the public. One Klan branch leader has a plan to increase his membership.
John Abarr, long time member of the KKK and leader of the Rocky Mountain Knights in Montana, has opened his membership to men of all different races, religions and sexual orientation.
Speaking to The Great Falls Tribune, Abarr said, “The KKK is for a strong America. White supremacy is the old Klan. This is the new Klan.”
Members will still sport the white robes and hood. Membership, however, will be less selective.
To join the new non-discriminatory group, you need to be 18, live in the Pacific Northwest, and want to fight against a “new world order,” which, according to Abarr, the US government is trying to usher in. [source]
Not everybody, however, is thrilled at the new Klan—including the Imperial Wizard.
Bradley Jenkins, leader of the United Klans of America, is refusing to allow Abarr to use the KKK title. According to Jenkins, Abarr is, “Going against everything the bylaws of the constitution of the KKK say. He’s trying to hide behind the KKK to further his political career.”
Mark Pitcavage of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) agrees.
“He’s one guy, pretending to start a Klan group.”
Still, it is rather amusing that the new KKK is more inclusive than the new Republican Party.
According to Raw Story,
On Tuesday the GOP added both Mia Love of Utah and Tim Scott of South Carolina to their respective House and Senate black caucuses boosting the membership rolls all the way up to one (1) from none (0). Well, actually Scott was already a senator having been appointed by the governor when Jim DeMint left public service to go be insane and racist in the private sector.
The KKK, or Rocky Mountain Knights, can start including anybody it wants, but it is still a hate group.
It did not work for Coke, and it won’t work for them.
