When the police can't or won't deal with scum like the KKK (typically because they are part of the scum kkk) then it is the duty of the citizens to take matters into their own hands.

This is not the only incident of well armed minorities ensuring justice.  A 2nd Amendment win.

There's a story going around about this kind of thing: Seems there was a group of Ku Klux Klansmen in Texas who heard that some Pagans were holding a ritual out in the woods somewhere. Having run out of other minorities to harass, they decided to get back to their roots and practice some religious bigotry in addition to the usual racial intolerance and break up the party with a good ol' cross-burning.So anyway, these fellows loaded up some lumber and a couple of cans of gasoline and went out hunting for these Pagans they'd heard about, hoping to catch them dancing nekkid around a fire or something.They found the spot where the other vehicles were parked and donned their hoods. Grabbing the lumber and gasoline, they assembled a cross and strode off into the woods, confident that they'd scare any remaining pants off the fluffybunny Pagans.They were a little disconcerted to find themselves looking at the business end of at least 2 spears, a couple of swords, assorted knives, and more than one firearm. They'd crashed an Asatru blot and didn't realize that not all Pagans are pacifists.From somewhere behind the hardware, a voice called out "If that cross goes up, you're getting nailed to it. I've got my hammer right here..."The Klansmen left in a bit of a hurry, it's said.Apparently one of my froiends in the local Pagan scene knows the group this happened to: The Hammer of Thor Protokindred out of Lubbock, TX./As a friend of mine used to say: "We practice the old ways. None of this turning the other cheek crap. Fark with us and we'll get you."

Just because they changed their name and don't burn crosses on people's lawns anymore, doesn't change the fact that they only consider European-Americans to be the only REAL Americans, and are quite vocal about it.

Interesting that you put the side of the "liberals" on the Native American side, which would leave the "conservatives" as being the KKK members, who when faced in an actual gun-toting situation, all ran like roaches for dark places instead of bootstrapping up.

Yes, very interesting....

Also note that the liberals fired shots into the air, and not into congress people you disagree with, school children, or shipyards full of people just doing their jobs.

Yep BF has gone to a gun show and taken NRA-connected classes, and he's a libby. He mainly has the gun over concerns about dangerous wildlife while camping. (out in the West, bears and mountain lions are real dangers). But you never know, the zombie apocalypse might finally happen or some other situation where a firearm might come in handy.

Worked great in Greensboro 1979 , too. Responsible gun owners confronted violent hateful extremists and shot to defend themselves.Shot five of the nasty critters stone dead. I'd say the KKK really learned a lesson from those Lumbees and it paid off big in 79.

5 or 10 to 1 odds and armed against a group that threatened people you know and wanted to take away your rights and no significant body count? I'd say the Lumbees exercised some amazing restraint. Were it the other way around I'm sure the body count would be quite high.

a shadow of what it was, who's membership fell from 4-5 million, to 5 thousand at best. Who's members were found "not guilty" of heinous crimes despite overwhelming evidence, to being actively pursued by law enforcement and convicted in state and federal courts.

But that's just my point, the problem is still going on and never really stopped at all.  Even in that county them farkers just went underground. I don't think any of us need to dig up the statistics to know that the Klan is likely responsible for multiple incidents of violence against minorities in that area, even if they're not as audacious about it as they used to be.

So either we're going to need a lot more ointment, or we need to figure out a way to treat the root causes of the disease instead of just the symptoms.

I'd prefer the latter as I suspect it's the only thing that'll really work, but I suppose I'll enjoy watching the former as well.

Sorry you're right, I just checked the stats and the KKK was bumped off of the Largest Hate Group spot five years ago.  My bad.  The rest of what I said still stands.
