The KKK in Virginia is using Obama’s presidency to recruit new members and they say it’s working brilliantly, more than doubling their membership to the largest the group has been in a century. Oh, and they’re not a hate group and how could you possibly think they are?
“Since Obama’s first term our numbers have doubled and now that we’re headed to a second term it’s going to triple, this is going to be the biggest resurgence of the Klan since 1915,” said one of the Klansmen interviewed.
The Klansman have been handing out flyers in a Mechanicsville neighborhood, and neighbors who received them have contacted CBS 6.
“We’re not trying to target anybody or scare anybody with hate, we’re just using our freedom of speech to drop fliers,” said one of the Klansmen interviewed. “Everyone thinks that we’re a hate group, we’re not a hate group, we don’t hate anyone, and we want to see good things come to our race.”
Oh, of course. I can’t imagine how anyone could think you were a hate group.
