It”s always refreshing to be greeted with something like this in your driveway, but that’s what happened to some residents in Mechanicsville, Virginia. Apparently the local Ku Klux Klan saw some fertile recruiting ground there to plant their ignorant sh*te, according to WTVR (via Think Progress):
“Since Obama’s first term our numbers have doubled and now that we’re headed to a second term it’s going to triple, this is going to be the biggest resurgence of the Klan since 1915,” said one of the Klansmen interviewed.
The Klansman have been handing out flyers in a Mechanicsville neighborhood, and neighbors who received them have contacted CBS 6.
“We’re not trying to target anybody or scare anybody with hate, we’re just using our freedom of speech to drop fliers,” said one of the Klansmen interviewed. “Everyone thinks that we’re a hate group, we’re not a hate group, we don’t hate anyone, and we want to see good things come to our race.”
In addition, the flier also mentions that “The law abiding citizens of your community can sleep in peace tonight know the Klan is on the prowl…to stop a third world invasion before people have to sell their homes and property values go down.”
I doubt their feeble numbers have expanded as much as they claim (though during Obama’s term and even prior to his election open racism, fostered by the GOP, has been pretty in-your-face.
Goodness knows, if the White House is not occupied by another person of color in 2016, the KKK will not have it so good, so why not go balls-out in its “marketing” while it can.
