Obviously you've never played Occarina of Time if you can't recognize the deep seeded racial undertones in the Legend of Zelda franchise.

I really wish we as a society would just ignore these shiat-for-brains defectives.  Don't take their pictures, don't interview them, don't acknowledge they exist.  They aren't worth the time it takes to move our eyeballs in their direction.

Well, law enforcement should. Because they engage in a lot of drug abuse and trafficking, gun smuggling, child abuse, spousal abuse, rape of all kinds, fraud, forgery, assault, organized crime, petty theft, grand larceny, extortion, welfare fraud, tax evasion, unauthorized practice of law, environmental code violations, incest, bigamy... oh yeah and ginning up racial hatred.

Not necessarily true.  It appears she will also know how to steal floor mats from tire shops.  It's not a real plus, but it's not "hate" really.

My neighbors were alleged Klan members, I think the father was even the local grand dragon or wizard (that was the rumor).  I can't confirm this, my friend said he was visiting them (their daughter was in my grade) for some school group project and he saw all the symbols and robes in their basement, as well as a large Nazi flag.

It wouldn't surprise me though, they were pretty much trash.  Not only did we have to sue them so they would pony up for their half of a fence we were building, but after that legal fiasco they asked if they could use our farm honey wagon to pump out their septic tank.  We also caught them trespassing on our land during deer season.

I also remember driving by a cross burning when I was younger, it was in the local (non-sanctioned)  youth baseball field not more then two miles from my house.

Yup.  Most of that isn't Klan, per se, so much as rural low-income.

For the most part, they are just like their neighbors apart from the loud-extreme-racism-as-a-lifestyle-choice.

'They live normal lives, some with stronger racial overtones than others. There is wealthy and poor, intelligent and unintelligent... just like anywhere else.'


Really? I didn't see any of these in TFA. The nicest least bad dwelling was still made of concrete blocks and treated lumber. All the rest were strongly indicative of lower economic class.

CSB time:  Frederick, Maryland was festooned with Klan fliers yesterday AM.  They were in plastic baggies, to protect them from the elements, and put under windshield wipers for about four blocks around Baker park.  I think they might have been put there by KKK protesters who didn't get to protest at Gettysburg, which is about 15 miles north.

I took a pic on my phone, might post it later.

Since I am diametrically opposed to everything the Klan stands for, I'm not trying to White Knight them here but is there any evidence that they commit the crimes you've listed at any greater rate than the general population, given the areas in which they typically live?

Except according to TFA, these idiots "... advocate the seperation [sic] of the races, claiming interbreeding between ethnicities goes against God's will (religion is a key part of their beliefs).

My Uncle Pete was, we always thought, a Klansman. A real nasty piece of work, he almost got punched out by my Dad at a family funeral (!) after he made some wisecracks I didn't hear. After my Mom got Dad calmed down, Pete got into a tussle with her brother over some other crap he said. Mom had to stop inviting him to family events because he always told racist jokes and stories. All his kids ran away from home and his wife eventually left him. His gas station had three bathrooms - Men, Women, Colored. He's long dead and that gas station was torn down when Hwy-70 was four-laned south of Kinston in the early 70s. Sort of wish we had taken some photos of it since my kids don't believe it.


I also remember driving by a cross burning when I was younger, it was in the local (non-sanctioned)  youth baseball field not more then two miles from my house.

The last cross-burning I saw was in the mid-60s in rural Craven County, NC, outside of Vanceboro. We were driving back from some family event in Greenville and the only road to the coast was a two-lane blacktop between New Bern and Greenville. It was out in a field and I was the only one awake in the car besides Dad, who was driving. Couldn't see anyone around it, just burning in the middle of a field. "Bunch of assholes" was his only comment.

Yes, at least as regards the organized crime/trafficking aspect. The various Klans are all security threat groups and often have multiple ex-con members. In this way they're no different than any other gang.

As compared to the population of gang members as a whole? No; gang member is gang member, no matter the affiliation.
