KKK Recruitment Efforts Are A Fail In Covington, Ga.
NewsOne ^ | Jun 6, 2013

Posted on 06/08/2013 7:31:20 PM PDT by nickcarraway

The recruitment drive to join the Ku Klux Klan in Covington, Ga., is in full swing again as residents are being urged to join the brotherhood of White supremacists via fliers dropped outside their homes, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The “Save Our Race” fliers were placed in to clear plastic sandwich bags with a rock and distributed throughout the Laurel Ridge subdivision. According to one of the complex’s residents, who chose to remain anonymous, though, most of her neighbors threw the racist announcement away. “I think they are just trying to [stir] up the little bit of racism that some people are still feeling,” the unnamed source said.

The KKK Grand Wizard Chris Barker told a Channel 2 news reporter that the fliers are invites since this is the Klan’s open season.

Watch news coverage of the KKK’s recruitment efforts here:

The racist radical group also attempted to recruit members in Covington, which is about 35 miles from Atlanta, back in January. At the time, the fliers included a drawing of a robed Klansman standing in front of a tree with writing that said, “Join the KKK — Loyal White Knights.”

The notices were reportedly tossed again, with many of the flyer recipients telling news reporters at the time that the recruitment efforts of the KKK was a bust; the KKK’s efforts to cause division actually had the opposite effect and brought the diverse town closer together as a people. Still, Barker told CBS Atlanta, “[This is] a recruitment drive to let the neighborhood know the Klan is there and the Klan isn’t going anywhere. We told our members to go out and pretty much counteract Martin Luther King’s birthday, who was a known communist — and we decided to put out Klan literature.”

Meanwhile, police are well aware of the KKK’s recruitment efforts, and according to them, as long as no laws are broken, they are free to populate the town with their propaganda.

If somebody handed me something like that I’d feel that it was my duty to inform them that I’ve recently discovered that my great grandfather was a Polish Jew. I’d then ask if he would like to donate to build a new synagogue in granddad’s honor.

There was a lawsuit several years ago locally, with a “progressive” organization found to have been inserting purported klan literature into the local free conservative newsweekly and tossing them into peoples’ yards. Said newsweekly did not provide home delivery. The conservative newsweekly won, the klan was nowhere in sight and never was, as far as this little propaganda exercise was concerned.

Something similar may very well be the case in Covington, GA. All is seldom as it seems when the white-hooded bogeymen get trotted out. Ask yourself who benefits.

They still blaming the Israelis for American leftism? Instead of hanging around Covington, GA they should just do what the IRA does: go to the Middle East and let Arab Communists train them.

Sheesh, even Thomas Dixon Jr. had no use for the idiots of the twentieth century Klan for its anti-Semitism and (then) anti-Catholicism.

They'll never have any success till they learn to give out better swag.

What Abolitionists believed about anything other than slavery disappears down a memory hole. Robert Owen and New Harmony, Indiana, never existed, nor did US Congressman Robert Dale Owen and Spiritualism.

Somehow, their cunning plan of recruiting in an almost-all-black Leftist city didn’t pan out too well...

the only way any pro-white group is going to get anyone worth having is nethat has nothing to do with the kkk, or succeeding based on hating other races simpky because they’re not white.

ie hate is not going to be the core of any worthwhile pro-white group. and you can be for self-defense and 2a without being for violence towards other races.

Freemasonry and the KKK. Two secret societies that have some of the same members, and both are racist.

Just like the Westboro Baptist Church, the KKK has way more media attention than their actual power and influence.

no kidding. Another group of white guys full of bluster. They have meetings, wear there club colors, get a little bad press and then crawl back under the rocks they live under while Ahmed builds another mosque on their street. What a bunch of inbred paper tigers. These balless idiots give bigots a bad name.

Well the press loves to play this stuff up but the KKK is not a player in GA. If they were they would already have burned that Jihad camp in Commerce down. You never hear anything about them or from them except in rare instances. Georgians are not a bunch of slobbering racists.

Most people can’t stand the KKK. They are a bunch of ignernt morons. Its an embarrassment somewhat similar to our RINO senator Saxby Chambliss trying to blame sexual assaults in the military on hormones.

That bunch was thoroughly infiltrated long ago to the point that if you saw two of them marching or protesting, one was an informant or agitator, or possibly both were by the late seventies. They continue to exist because they serve a politically useful purpose for the left, consisting of a few duped yahoos and a whole lot of infiltrators. Again, all is not as it seems when the white hooded bogeymen get trotted out. Ask yourself who benefits. Did white racists benefit from this? No, it was an exercise complete futility that if anything had the opposite effect. Who did benefit?

There may be no continuity between the old KKK clowns and the few current KKK clowns. I doubt the name is trademarked.

From what I’ve seen the South hasn’t been a fertile recruiting ground for decades but the Klan keeps trying.
There was a Klan rally and recruiting drive here in Hampton Roads about a dozen years ago. News video showed half dozen Klansmen – IIRC from Ohio – and about a dozen bystanders who were pointing and laughing. The only rallies I heard of that could really be called that have been in the North.

The party of Klansmen like David Duke and Robert Byrd.

Even on FR there are plenty who believe that Jew Karl Marx (who was actually born and raised Lutheran) invented socialism.

I don't know if he was born Lutheran, but he was most assuredly raised Lutheran, and at one time was very devout.

What Abolitionists believed about anything other than slavery disappears down a memory hole.

Ironic considering most radical abolitionists (including William Lloyd Garrison) began life as conservative Federalists.

Robert Owen and New Harmony, Indiana, never existed, nor did US Congressman Robert Dale Owen and Spiritualism.

You forgot to mention the anti-Semites who paved the way for the French Revolution (Voltaire et al).

Deep down inside most non-Jews resent Jews for representing the objective One True G-d, Who is a threat to the local/ancestral "gxds" they worship (sometimes under a "universalist" veneer). Jews are indeed corrosive to false "gxds" just as HaShem intended. Notice how few anti-Semites attack Jews for opposing objective moral laws and how many attack them for opposing local custom.

“I thought the KKK supported jihad?”

Not unless its white, anglo saxon protestant. They have a fairly narrow criteria of who’s OK. :-)

The Klan used to support the Arabs. David Duke has even been interviewed by state media in Iran.

All anti-Semites are friends to each other.
