Skip to comments.Clinton ad ties Trump to KKK, white supremacists
Posted on 08/25/2016 9:55:39 AM PDT by Scythian_Reborn
A video released Thursday by Hillary Clintons campaign makes the case that Donald Trump is the candidate of racists, white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes, we believe in, a robed man identified as the Imperial Wizard of the Rebel Brigade Knights of the Ku Klux Klan says at the top of the video, followed by images of a Confederate flag fluttering in the wind, Trump waving after a speech, and a man performing a Hitler salute at what appears to be a Trump rally.

In 2010, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fondly eulogized Sen. Robert Byrd, a former member and recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan. Clinton called Byrd my friend and mentor in a video message to commemorate his passing.
Average Americans don’t like being called racist. This will backlash on Hillary.
I haven't read their page except for this excerption nor watched the video.
According to their website;
"We are the True Invisible Empire Knights, We hope this finds you well and ask that you will read this with an open mind.
Our objective is not to offend anyone, or undermine your beliefs.
Those being said, please allow us to clear the air a bit.
As a true member of the Rebel Brigade Knights True Invisible Empire, we can honestly say that our intentions are not malicious.
We do seek to ensure a safe and secure future for Caucasian Americans and for that we will "NOT" apologize.
We also are painfully aware of the horrible and hateful acts carried out by the klansmen past. We fully understand the history of our organization and the stigmas attached to it and we strive to cleanse the klan name by our positive actions.
Due to The History Channel, text books, and past actions ( of members no longer living!), we accept that the name of the klan is tarnished but ask you in return, can people change ?
Can an organization evolve so much to overcome those stigmas and dark crevices of its past?
We, the Knight of the True Invisible Empir, are fighting for the opportunity to change your mind.
Many people will never understand why a "God fearing" person would join such a tainted crowd.
Let us clarify some things for you.
The Rebel Brigade Knights True Invisible Empire do not associate with hate groups such as Nazis, Aryan Nation Brotherhood, their circle, or any other White Nationalist Party.
We do not preach hate, and at no time would we react hatefully to any man, woman, or child, regardless of race.
Although many people consider us to be a hate group, The Rebel Brigade Knights True Invisible Empire strive to help any living being may need our assistance.

They probably vetted him like they do “Syrian” refugees.
I can’t believe the democrats have lost the KKK. Robert Byrd must be turning over in his grave.
Can you get this video to the campaign I don’t know how!!! This BITCH need to taken DOWN!!! Trump NEEDS to run ads to refute this CRAP I am so SICK TO DEATH of these BASTARDS dividing this country and blaming OUR side!!!
Of course this ad was coming. Trump is gaining with blacks so they have to dig out the good ole classics.
Waiting for the following Trump or PAC AD: ISIS throwing gays off of roofs, terror in Paris, California, Florida etc. and picture of Hillary Clinton and voice over stating Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State helped form ISIS and thus aided and abetted in these violent acts. Is this who you want to be your next president? Vote Trump.
The not so hidden message is not the KKK supports Trump. The real message they are trying to send is that Trump supporters are racists.
No one wants to risk being accused of being a racist. Hence no one will want to risk being a Trump supporter.
This ad is quite an insult to Trump supporters, and quite divisive. I wonder if CNN will comment on how divisive Hillary’s ads are? (/ s)
Doing what he can to put Hillary in the White House. He’ll never get over the fact that he had zero influence in this election. He tried everything, and I mean EVERYTHING to give Cruz the nomination.
Haven’t listened to him since he tried to tell me that Rubio was the closest thing to Reagan and was a strict conservative.
But Robert Byrd will have schools and highways named after him...
The Communist Party endorsed HRC. I haven’t heard her disavow the endorsement.
Cruzites and NeverTrumpers are dancing with glee over this ad.
Show me a candidate who thinks that they will waltz into office at this stage of the campaign and I'll show you a loser. Clinton is throwing the kitchen sink at Trump right now, looking for things that work. And since Trump has been appealing directly to blacks and Hispanics lately you knew that they'd try something like this in response.
Desperate people do Desperate things.
I was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1950 at Crawford W. Long Hospital. I lived in Georgia all my life except when I served my country from 1968-1976 in the military overseas almost 7 out of those 8+ years overseas.
I have personally NEVER seen anyone or any group associated with the KKK doing anything except where the local news people go out looking for fools to put on TV. I remember early in my life seeing chain gangs by the road passing through other states with my parents before interstates, but never anyone Klan.
Her horseshit belongs with Bill’s fake “I remember seeing Arkansas black churches burned growing up.” There were exactly NONE. She is a confirmed liar and an unindicted felon. Nothing more than that.
This ad will backfire.
The Democrats have for years called anyone that did not support them “racist”. I will go further, to the Democrats, if you are “white” you are “racist”
Along come Trump, and he lets the “racist” tag slide off him. He is showing the nation that you are only hurt if you accept their viewpoint, other wise the name calling is meaningless.
I would suggest that many white Americans supported the civil rights movement of the 1960s because it was the right thing to do. Now 50 years later the “civil rights movement” is doing all it can to put “whites” in the back of the bus, and into segregated ghettos.
People are coming to the conclusion it is time for a new civil right movement, where the content of one character is more important then the color of their skin. That is the world Trump supporters come from.
