In recent years the KKK has had a surge in popularity, mainly due to America’s first black president, Barack Obama. They claim they have softened over the years, but can this group of racist terrorists really be as benign as they would like us to believe?
If you though the days of burning crosses and hooded rallies are long gone, think again. Hate groups in the US have being growing at a rapid rate over the past decade, and you could just be surprised at who is among their ranks.
“This is a new deal. It’s nothing like that. I mean it’s totally different,” Michael Carlton, who runs KKK security for the Northern Mississippi branch tells us.
But however much they try to look like nice, reasonable sorts, there is always a reminder of where they’re coming from. “I’m just not a big fan of blacks in general. To me they’re just a thieving race, just a low, low race.”
And while they continually protest that they’re not looking for violence and have left their lynching days behind them, under the guise of helping enforce rule of law there’s a chilling reminder of the KKK’s past.
“I don’t kill people but I have no problem saying this on this camera: I have no problem with taking somebody, tying them to a tree and whipping them. Giving them an old fashioned whoopin.”
