Missouri KKK Leader: ‘Ferguson Protesters Are The Best Recruiters Since Obama’
According to the head a Missouri KKK group, calls are pouring in to his “Klanline” from prospective recruits who are angry over the protests in Ferguson.
[su_center_ad]”Missouri is definitely on fire right now,” Frank Ancona, the imperial wizard of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan said.
It’s as if he’s never seen the film Mississippi Burning.
The Riverfront Times reports:
In the past the group made headlines by passing out fliers for a KKK neighborhood watch program, but Anocna tells Daily RFT the Ferguson protests are attracting a new wave hopeful hood-wearers. He says he’s inducted 50 new members to the group’s Missouri chapter this month, and numbers are up in Ohio and Alabama as well.
“These Ferguson protesters are the best recruiters since Obama,” he declared. “Normally we might hear from ten people a week in Missouri, and now we’re hearing from more like 50 people a week. Sometimes, depending on these news stories, we get 100, 200 calls in a day.”
But Ancona says the time for such restraint is over. He cites death threats made against police officers on social media and statements from outspoken activists, such as notoriously inflammatory livestreamer Bassem Masri, as reasons the Klan can no longer stay on the sidelines.
“I call them terrorists, not protesters,” he said, while discounting the KKK’s actual history of terrorism, murder and intimidation.
A flyer was released by Anocona’s racist group yesterday which vows the use of “lethal force” in response to violent protesters.
“You have awakened a sleeping giant,” the flier reads. “The good people of St. Louis County of all races, colors and creeds will not tolerate your threats of violence against our police officers, their families and our communities.”
“You have been warned by the Ku Klux Klan!” it concludes. “There will be consequences for your acts violence against the peaceful law abiding citizens of Missouri.”
The day the KKK deems themselves worthy to police a town with a large black population is the day the SCOTUS needs a stern talking to while writing their letters of resignation in ‘post-racial America.’
