Ku Klux Klan gives out free candy in South Carolina recruiting effort

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/ku-klux-klan-gives-out-free-candy-in-south-carolina-recruiting-effort/article19630177/


Some residents in South Carolina say they found bags of candy on their street containing a piece of paper asking them to join the Ku Klux Klan.

Residents in Oconee County found the bags Saturday night or Sunday morning.

The paper said “Save Our Land, Join the Klan.” It had a phone number that led to an automated message discussing KKK efforts against illegal immigration.

Robert Jones told WHNS-TV that he’s the imperial klaliff of the Loyal White Knights and said the effort was part of a recruiting event they hold three times a year.



Presumably the bags already had the eye holes cut out.

3. "Imperial klaliff"? That's not a silly made-up title at all, right?

8. The Klan tried to recruit us when I was in high school.

I was brought up to be a racist repiglican conservative christer. I escaped that shit when I began thinking for myself, which caused a huge rift in the family. Stopped going to church but it took years till I stopped worrying about being "left behind," though the racism was so ingrained I still have to fight it within myself from time to time. It became a default response in my childhood, and I doubt I'll ever escape it completely. Still, I can beat the shit out of it when it enters my thoughts.

Tough shit, mom & dad.
