KKK Leaflets Allowed By a Federal Judge in Missouri

KANSAS CITY — The Ku Klux Klan has won the pre-injunction allowing the KKK to distribute leaflets the Southern East of Missouri City.

 

The Ku Klux Klan won the suit claiming that the ban against leafleting vehicles that are not occupied violates the freedom of speech of KKK as the First Amendment states it.

 

The KKK’s American Knights planned to post leaflets on vehicles along Cape Girardeau. However, the KKK learned that the city permits fliers alone, especially, if occupants will accept them.

 

The judge names John A. Ross stated that the Ku Klux Klan was expected to succeed. He wrote: “the stability of the justices and the interest of the community are more on the freedom of people regarding speech.”

 

Al Spradling, a former City mayor, stated that he will discuss it with the City Council.

 

The given KKK group claims itself as a nonviolent Christian organization patriarching the whites. Accordingly, this KKK group has been already near 2,000 members.

 

The lawsuit against the leafleting claims that the KKK uses leaflets to promulgate their advocacy.

 

The KKK admitted that they fear to be imprisoned if they will be illegally distributing leaflets. Accordingly, it is a 3-month imprisonment if they violate the law together with a fine of $500.

 

“We know that the judge will base on the precedence and we have a big chance to win the lawsuit,” Tony Rothert stated. He is the ACLU’s legal director who fought successfully against other suits regarding leaflet restrictions.

Colorado – Solid Grounds of Ku Klux Klan

The KKK presence in Colorado – it is hard to believe right?

 

Colorado is politically dominated by the Republican Party. Going back to the KKK history, it is very clear how easy it is for the Ku Klux Klan to infiltrate Colorado.

 

In fact, KKK history would show that this is not the very first time they shown their presence in our state. Accordingly, the state has low African-American population in the early years so the KKK focuses somewhere else. The KKK history also shows that by the year 1920, there were already 30,000 membership of the Ku Klux Klan in Colorado alone.

 

Similar to other Colorado KKK communities, the Ku Klux Klan began in the Fort Collins; being considered as a genuine organization.

 

Afterwards, white-robed and hooded KKK members began to march along the streets to rally on the hill. Salyers, an elected Exalted Cyclops, discovered the KKK history of profound anger towards Jews and Catholics. Deeply deceived, he said that “as Christians as they were, they must be charitable toward everyone.”

 

The KKK dismissed Salyers and members were asked to avoid purchasing in his store. Even non-KKK members avoided the shop in fear of KKK retaliation. Salyers decided to persevere in what the Ku Klux Klan does to him.

 

Accordingly, the name of his store disappeared from the directory after he was dismissed from the KKK. Salyers’ story spread through Colorado like wildfire; after which, a bipartisan group began to investigate the Ku Klux Klan. By the year 1926, their influence decreased; however, KKK-motivated events still happen rarely.

THE KU KLUX KLAN: The Organization

Ku Klux Klan

Ku Klux Klan at its height

The Ku Klux Klan is a white supremacist organization that advocates white nationalism and racial segregation. They believe that only white, heterosexual Christians should have civil rights.

This organization first incarnation and founding Klan started by four civil war veterans from Pulaski, Tennessee in 1865. These Confederate veterans from the South were all about helping the widows and orphans after the war. However, the organization turned to violence and extreme acts of terrorism by the 1870s.

In the second and third incarnation of the KKK, the hate and violent acts continued with their focus diversifying to other groups of individuals apart from the African-American freedmen and white Americans who helped abolish slavery in the United States. Jews, Catholics, homosexuals, bi-racial and immigrants became their targets as well.

Membership

Ku Klux Klan Membership Openings

Recruiting members has been successful throughout the United States and Canada whenever there is a non-white related issue. Some misgivings about Klan members being ignorant farmers are untrue. Members are usually from the working class, middle class or even professional ranks. They are predominantly Protestants, operating under a profit-making business venture by requiring new members to pay initiation fees and buy Klan costumes (conical hats and robes). Half of the fee will then be sent to the state and national officials.

Membership in the Ku Klux Klan, like other secret societies, used to be a secret.  Like all secret organizations, members are taught signs they can use to recognize each other. They use the acronym AYAK (Are you a Klansman?) in greeting. In response, another member would say AKIA (A Klansman I am).

Since it was founded, the total number of members has fluctuated through the years. Below is a chart of the approximate number of members in different time periods in the first, second and third incarnation of the Klan.

Year

Membership

1920 4,000,000
1924 6,000,000
1930 30,000
1980 5,000
2008 6,000
