    NBC News ^ | 4/17/14 | Lisa Riordan Seville
    Registered users of the Internet’s largest white supremacist forum – dubbed “a magnet for the deadly and deranged” -- have carried out nearly 100 murders in the past five years, a group that tracks “hate groups” reported Thursday. The report by the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center found users of Stormfront.org, which advocates “white power,” have been disproportionately responsible for some of the most deadly hate crimes and mass killings since the site’s founding in 1995. “Stormfront is the murder capital of the racist Internet,” said Heidi Beirich, report author and Intelligence Project director. “It has been a magnet for...

    As a former Klan leader is charged with killing three in Kansas, the frayed white supremacy group is trying to attract new members. The Southern Poverty Law Center estimates the number of hate groups in the U.S. has risen from 602 in 2000 to 939 in 2013 The Ku Klux Klan was once a major force in America, with a membership of nearly 4 million that regularly included mayors, chiefs of police and other grandees of segregated regions, especially in the South and Midwest. It’s been decades since the Klan held that sort of mainstream sway, but Sunday’s deadly rampage...

    Original Title:Hank Aaron Says Republicans are Like the KKK but with ‘Neckties and Starched Shirts’ Instead of Hoods Hank Aaron is a baseball icon. Forty years ago he broke Babe Ruth's all-time homerun record of 714. He ended his career with a total of 755. Barry Bonds surpassed Aaron's record with a total of 762. Since there are claims that Bonds was "juiced," the record is viewed as suspect. When Aaron was getting close to Ruth's record, the racists came out similar to the way they did when Jackie Robinson broke the baseball color barrier in 1945. They wrote nasty...

On Sunday, Frazier Glenn Miller, or Frazier Glenn Cross, murdered three people at two different Jewish centers in Overland Park, Kansas–including a man, woman, and child. He shot at two others, but they were uninjured. As he was arrested, the founder of the White Patriot Party screamed “Heil Hitler!” Frazier/Cross told Colmes, a Jewish...

The gunman, said to be an older man, singled out Jewish victims for death, Rabbi Herbert Mandl, a chaplain with the Overland Park Police Department, told CNN. “Asking someone if you are Jewish before shooting sounds very much like a hate crime,” Mandl said.

Yes, the author of his campaign book turned out to be an unreconstructed neo-Confederate. That was a speed bump.

    Few people understand how lawless Abraham Lincoln was in propagating our country’s biggest nightmare—the Civil War. And not enough people sense the parallel of Obama’s emerging lawlessness. Lincoln achieved his political aims by bullying—rather than effective, innovative solutions and negotiations. Here are some facts: • Lincoln closed more than 300 newspapers that disagreed with him. • He arrested members of state legislatures, preventing them from debating the secession issue. • He ordered military trials for citizens when civilian courts were available. Many of these trials resulted in hangings. • Operating as a military dictator, Lincoln spent millions not authorized by...

The purpose of the meeting was kept secret from all but a few. When they arrived, they found Gen. Patrick Cleburne, an Irish immigrant and one of Johnston’s best division commanders, who presented a radical proposal: to enlist slaves as rebel soldiers in exchange for their freedom.

    The Ku Klux Klan was formed as a social club by a group of Confederate Army veterans in Pulaski, Tennessee in the winter of 1865-66. The group adopted the name Ku Klux Klan from the Greek word "kyklos," meaning circle, and the English word clan. In the summer of 1867, the Klan became the "Invisible Empire of the South" at a convention in Nashville, Tennessee attended by delegates from former Confederate states. The group was presided over General Nathan Bedford Forrest, who is believed to have been the first Grand Wizard -- the title for the head of the organization.

    Political Correctness: As liberals obsess over the name of a football team, they ignore hate speech spewing from their own ranks over Americans' exercise of constitutional rights. 'If I were the owner of the team, and I knew that there was a name of my team — even if it had a storied history — that was offending a sizeable group of people, I'd think about changing it," President Obama said in an Associated Press interview on the subject of the Washington Redskins. But if there is anything that should offend everyone, it should be the image of a burning...

    If Alfalfa had an evil twin brother it would have to be that big Little Rascal Alan Grayson. Like any good liberal he never lets facts get in the way of an opportunity to call conservatives racist. He sent an email with that cute little KKK image below to supporters...and I took the liberty of correcting it.It reminds me of the idiotic joke Bill Maher used to tell about the 2000 RNC that the last time the GOP had so many blacks on stage they were selling them...it got a huge laugh by the room full of libnorant people. Obviously it...

The following message has been brought to you by the DNC (Democrats' National Chicanery) and the MSM*. It is intended for mature audiences. *Alan Grayson's extra chins could not be reached for comment. "This morning as I was brushing my tooth, my mind got to wandering. I started thinking about that big old government in Washington BC, and how they ruin everything. I looked over at Brangelina, that's...
  • Tea Party being compared to KKK

    10/19/2013 6:30:25 AM PDT · by Tennessee Conservative · 70 replies
    Please excuse any mistakes but I'm new. I'm a member of a bicycling forum and they hate me for being a Conservative and a Tea Party supporter. The forum has a political section. Last night there was a thread comparing the Tea Party to the KKK. I normally keep my mouth shut but the Tea Party hatred there was more than the norm. I reminded them that the Democrats were behind the founding of the KKK and provided links. One link was even from the Black Republican website. They called the KKK the terrorist arm of the Democrat party. Of...

    It also turns out that the September, 1926 game between the Hebrews and the Klan wasn't the only time Abe Povich played against an anti-Semitic group. Larry Povich, one of Abe's sons, reports that he was often told about a game against a group of racists that the Hebrews actually won. ..... "They felt that they were in trouble because he said [the racists] had picked up their bats at, what they thought was, an inappropriate time. And they were coming after them," Larry said. Turns out the white supremacists were sore losers. "It's very vivid in my mind in...

    The Danville Register & Bee ^ | September 6, 2013 | Brittany Hughes
    Residents of a quiet, peaceful section of Marshall Terrace, a Danville neighborhood near West Main Street, woke Thursday morning to an unwelcome surprise in their front lawns. Small, rolled up flyers had been placed in front of their houses, sporting racial and other discriminatory slurs. While no one knows for sure who passed out the material, the handouts did sport the signature of the Loyal White Knights, a branch of the Ku Klux Klan. At least two different flyers have been identified so far. One ad called for America to “wake up,” and asked readers who have had enough of...

    This is the untold story of the Union's "hard war" against the people of the Confederacy. Styled the "Black Flag" campaign, it was agreed to by Lincoln in a council with his generals in 1864. Cisco reveals the shelling and burning of cities, systematic destruction of entire districts, mass arrests, forced expulsions, wholesale plundering of personal property, and even murder of civilians. Carefully researched largely from primary sources, this examination also gives full attention to the suffering of Black victims of Federal brutality.
