A longtime KKK leader in Montana says he has turned over a new leaf and his chapter of that notorious organization will no longer be racist. Oh, they’ll still be right wing extremists, ranting about the “New World Order” and promoting hyper-nationalism. It’s a kinder, gentler KKK.
John Abarr of Great Falls claims he is a reformed man, which is why he’s started a new KKK group called the Rocky Mountain Knights. Though he won’t say exactly how many members this new KKK group has, the organization will not discriminate against people because of race, religion or sexual orientation.
“The KKK is for a strong America,” Abarr said. “White supremacy is the old Klan. This is the new Klan.”…
Abarr said his chapter of the KKK is a fraternal organization seeking members who want to fight against a “new world order” or a one-world government, which he is afraid the federal government is trying to achieve.
Members who join still would be required to wear the robes and hoods and participate in the secret rituals, but Abarr said the Rocky Mountain Knights will be an open and non-discriminatory group.
Abarr’s latest actions have enraged the United Klans of America, according to Bradley Jenkins, imperial wizard for the organization. He agrees with the Montana Human Rights Network that Abarr should not be using the KKK title for his new organization — but for completely different reasons.
“That man’s going against everything the bylaws of the constitution of the KKK say,” Jenkins said. “He’s trying to hide behind the KKK to further his political career.”
Abarr just hopes people will give him a chance. If they get to know him, he said people will see his views have changed and he’s ready to form a different KKK.
Nope, don’t think I want to get to know him. The fact that he still wants to be part of the KKK tells me all I need to know.
