“We’re starting to reach out more to the African-American community,” said Robert Jones, leader of the Ku Klux Klan. Yes, you read right — the Ku Klux Klan.
The White supremacy group is calling upon the Black community and other groups that it traditionally slurred, rejected and terrorized to join the Loyal White Knights in its efforts against undocumented immigrants who are coming to America. This includes communities in Atlanta, Orange County, California, and South Carolina.
The KKK is seemingly veering away from their “White power” slogan and pushing their infamous “Keep America American” doctrine: Undocumented immigrants are their newest target.
“We think our government should step in and do a whole lot more to secure our borders. All our jobs are being outsourced right now, and what jobs are left here, black and white Americans are being forced to have a competition with the Mexicans coming across the border, because they’ll do the job cheaper,” Jones said.
The KKK is changing up recruitment tactics, too. Epitomizing irony, Jones says that the KKK are deliberately visiting random households — disregarding race, religion, and creed — because they don’t want to be seen as “racist”. In some places, they’re handing out candy:
“I mean, we can’t tell who lives in a house, whether they’re black, white, Mexican, gay, we can’t tell that. And if you were to look at somebody’s house like that, that means you’d be pretty much a racist,” the KKK leader said.
Oh, and get this — Jones says that the KKK are opening up their historically racially violent doors to the Black community.
“We’re starting to see the whites and African-Americans waking up to this illegal immigration problem. We’re starting to reach out more to the African-American community and talk to them about the same issues, and they’re agreeing with the Klan that illegal immigration needs to stop.”
Mark Potok, a White spokesman for the Southern Poverty Law Centers, calls B.S. on the KKK leader’s statement:
“The idea that black people are somehow flocking to the Klan or the Klan’s message because the Klan is critical of undocumented immigration is simply false. It’s a claim that is made as part of the Klan’s general claim that they’re more of a friendly neighborhood watch group that hates no one and is merely proud of white heritage.”
The KKK, which has more than 85,000 members, is advocating for one extreme solution for illegal immigration: A shoot to kill policy along the border.
