The KKK Loves Them Some Roy Moore

In completely unsurprising news, a Ku Klux Klan group is lavishing praise upon Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore for his brave attempts to keep that state firmly entrenched in the 19th century. They’re calling on their members to take to the streets and protest against equality:

In a latest attempt to capitalize on political and racial controversy, a Ku Klux Klan faction from Mississippi has initiated a “Call to arms in Alabama” in response to federal courts ruling that an amendment to the state constitution banning same-sex marriage was unconstitutional.

The post, which appeared on the United Dixie White Knights’ (UDWK) website and later on Stormfront — the largest online white supremacist forum — championed Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore for defying federal courts and called for Klansmen to leave their robes behind and take to the streets in protest.

“The Mississippi Klan salutes Alabama’s chief justice Roy Moore, for refusing to bow to the yoke of Federal tyranny,” Brent Waller, the UDKW’s imperial wizard, wrote in a Stormfront post. “The fudge packers from Hollywood and all major news networks are in shock that the good people from the heart of Dixie are resisting their Imperialist, Communist Homosexual agenda!”

Waller’s reason for his fellow Klansman to wear plain clothes is simple. “We have made the decision that we don’t want to distract attention away from the issue, as anytime the Klan rides, we are made the issue by the zionist controlled media,” he wrote. Not that wearing robes and hoods has been a consideration before…

“We as White Christians intend to see that no outside agitators bully or intimidate the White Christian majority in the State of Alabama,” Waller told Hatewatch on Tuesday. “We salute those like the chief justice for standing against the Immoral, Ungodly and activist Federal Judges.”

It’s not a coincidence that Martin Luther King’s famous I Have a Dream speech referred to “interposition and nullification,” which is exactly what Moore is attempting to do in Alabama in trying to defy a federal court order.

    So I guess the KKK don’t have any gay members… that they know of. I was under the impression that they just hated anybody who wasn’t white.

    One of the under-reported aspects of Roy Moore’s fight to keep a 10 Commandments monument in an AL courthouse was reported in the federal ruling against Moore’s refusal to get rid of the monument. That was, ironically, his blatant discrimination against Jewish people coming before his court. That was especially true of lawyers before the court who were jewish.

    I think it’s important to note this here relative to the KKK. Moore isn’t like a lot of today’s Christian fundamentalists who don’t hold the same level of animosity previous generations of fundies held. His old-school fundamentalism is much closer to the heart of George Wallace and the KKK than people realize.

    @Doug Little #1 – The KKK has gone through a number of revivals in the 150 or so years it has been in existence. During it’s largest heyday in the 1920s, it promoted itself as the true bastion of WASP values and took strong positions against immigrants (sound familiar?) Most of the immigrants at that time were Jewish or Catholic, which is how the Klan adopted strongly anti-Jewish and anti-Catholic rhetoric. Not surprisingly, the remnants of the Klan after its collapse in the 1930s went on to support Hitler as the Defender of the White during WW II, which is why the modern Klan is largely indistinguishable from neo-Nazis.

    “United Dixie White Knights”

    “fudge packers from Hollywood”

    “Imperialist, Communist Homosexual agenda”

    “Immoral, Ungodly and activist Federal Judges”

    So many band names…

    Not surprised to see support for Judge Roy by an idiot from the shallow end of the gene pool. I just hope the “call to arms” doesn’t involve any actual weapons.

    We used to mockingly (in Lake County in Northwest Indiana) consider KKK to stand for their hatred of Koons, Kikes, and Katholics. Interestingly enough, in the 1920s when the Klan ran Indiana, they almost bought what is now Valparaiso University in order to make a Klan University in the overwhelmingly white Porter County right next door.

    Wait…the KKK supports Roy Moore? I thought he was exactly like Martin Luther King.

    It’s nice that some people are still willing to stand up for Traditional American Values, like State’s Rights, Nullification and Firing at Fort Sumter.

    It’s a well known fact that the Klan was started by Democrats, and that Democrats in the South are the real racists because they fought against equal rights for black people in the past. Also, Robert Byrd.

    At least that’s what every conservative Einstein on any thread where racism is an issue will tell you. And when it’s pointed out that those racist Democrats almost to a man turned Republican, they will cyber scream in all-caps that that’s a vicious lie. Because Fox news or Rush never taught them what to say after that reality is pointed out.

    Just read the Wiki on the clan. They pretty much hate everybody. Thanks Gregory.

    It is a lie! Robert Byrd stayed a Democrat! I overheard Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond talking about it.

    I suppose it really doesn’t need to be said … “birds of a feather …”

  • D. C. Sessions

    So I guess the KKK don’t have any gay members

    Or maybe they just keep them where they keep their robes.

  • kantalope

    At some point don’t they look at who agrees with them and say to themselves “geeze maybe my ideas attract the wrong types.” Or is that too much self reflection?

  • notruescott

    I guess they need yet another K to express their hatred of koons, kikes, katholics, and kweers.

    Or something.

    moore is one of those white supremacists who hate everyone maybe including himself

    He’s jsut another george wallace- hates minorities of all kinds because internally he’s a very weak man, eg a super bully. Most likely his forebares were Kluxers
