A man in Florida who looks like he stepped right out an episode of Cops is flying a KKK flag over his mobile home. But he says don’t worry, it’s not like he’s actually beating up “faggots” or black people or anything. It’s just his freedom of speech, dontchaknow.
“As many people know, the white families are producing less children because the father and mother work and you have interracial marriages and gay marriages, so there are less and less white children being born every day,” the man, who would only identify himself as Mr. Hayes, told Local 10′s Roger Lohse. “So we’re against that.”
Hayes said he started flying the KKK flag a couple weeks ago and posted a sign seeking new members. He claims so far the response has been positive.
“Don’t get anybody throwing bottles on my lawn or anything like that,” Hayes said. “They toot their horn. They stop. They wave. They take pictures.”
Hayes said he moved to Florida from New York four years ago, yet this Yankee also flies a confederate flag.
Despite the noose hanging in his front yard, Hayes said he does not condone violence.
“We don’t go around committing hate crimes,” Hayes said. “We don’t beat up on faggots or black people or burn crosses or any of that nonsense.”
I used to jokingly ask why white supremacists never seem to have anything to feel superior about, but in fact that is exactly the point. They tend to be losers who are looking around for someone to blame for their lot in life and people of other races are a convenient scapegoat. And I bet his reassurances are very comforting to any black people in the area while he’s got a noose in his front yard.
