Writer: KKK are "terrorists" - "Nazis"
posted March 13, 2010
Since its inception, the KKK has been nothing more than a stain on the
landscape of this great country. The original terrorists, who hid
behind hoods, burning black churches and homes, lynching blacks and
doing their best to keep one race subservient to another.
Over time, in an effort to gain more acceptance from other whites, the
Klan broadened its message of hate to include any and every sect of
people not of English, German, Irish, or Scotch decent. From a
historical standpoint, the Klan has always evolved, always looking to
become the next "thing" capable of creating tension among the people of
our country. These days it seems the Klan is run primarily by
"skinheads" or Nazis, a point that should be taken note of by those of
us who had Grandparents who fought and gave their lives in order to
destroy the Nazi regime during World War II.
The Klan has long played on the societal differences of our people, a
fact that even this writer doesn't dispute exists. Granted, we
are raised differently, taught to appreciate different types of music,
food, clothing. Our politics are different, our speech differs
from one another.
However, an American should be judged by what exists on the inside, not
the outside. Every man, women and child should be judged by the
individual, not the whole, a fact that the Klan and its members have
Each time I read or see where the Klan is marching, I think about what
it must be like for the blacks of that particular community. In
my mind, I've concluded it would be something akin to watching the
masterminds of 9/11, walk through the streets of our town, allowed to
spew their hatred for this country, all the while hiding behind their
"Freedom of Speech."
I think about our black servicemen and women, our black law enforcement
officers, firemen, teachers, and volunteers. I think of the quiet
outrage and humiliation they must feel. While I understand the
law allows for this type of public assembly, I would hate to see the
Klan march here in Edgefield.
As a Christian, I simply cannot
condone the message this terrorist organization sends or the deeds of
