The KKK is going to Ferguson to murder protesters.

I’m prone to a little exaggeration and hyperbole from time to time, but watch this interview with Frank Ancona, head of Traditionalist American Knights of the KKK, on MSNBC and tell me I’m lying.

And he basically says the cops in Ferguson have already endorsed their presence (which we could have already surmised, but it’s nice to ear it from the Klan’s own mouth.)

1999 - Less than 20 KKK members held a demonstration in New York City, where they were met by 6000 counterprotesters. Some of them posed as KKK supporters to get close enough to attack the march. The cops rushed to protect the Klansmen. As he was being arrested the man who threw the punch shouted “Death to the Klan!”  [video]

Anonymous is at war with the KKK over Ferguson — and they’re winning

Hacktivist group and occasional good guy Anonymous has seized control of two Twitter accounts associated with the Ku Klux Klan and launched attacks on its online services, all in the name of protecting residents of riot-torn Ferguson, Missouri.

The group also brought down a website belonging to a local branch of the KKK, which issued racially motivated threats against civil rights activists in Ferguson. According to a statement received by ZDNet, Anonymous has also gained access to some Klansmen’s emails and has distributed the phone numbers of KKK members for anonymous harassment.

On Nov 3, 1979, five people were killed when the Ku Klux Klan and Nazis fired on an anti-Klan rally in Greensboro, NC. The police, who had been warned of the potential for trouble, were suspiciously absent at the time of the attack.  The Greensboro Truth and Reconciliation Commission was formed in 2004 to investigate the incident, known as the Greensboro Massacre.

Students can compare the message in headlines for the coverage of this story. For example, History.com (This Day in History online) says: “Communists and Klansmen clash in Greensboro” whereas This Day in Civil Rights History (NewSouth Books, 2009) says: “Klansmen, Nazis Gun Down Five in Greensboro, N.C.”

Then 18-year-old Keshia Thomas of Ann Arbor shields a man wearing a Confederate T-shirt from an angry crowd during a Ku Klux Klan rally on June 22, 1996, outside Ann Arbor’s city hall. Thomas, who won national attention for her act, later said: “People don’t have to remember my name. I just want them to remember that I did the right thing.”  [source]

#4. Black Musician Kills the Klan With Kindness

Black musician and author Daryl Davis has a collection of over 20 KKK robes in his house. No, he’s not blind, a ghost fetishist, or a Chappelle’s Show character. The truth is even more amazing: each robe in Davis’ menagerie of racist wares represents a Klansman he has managed to reform through sheer force of friendship. But how did Davis end up befriending people we imagine would sooner shank him than shake his hand? It all began at a bar, which makes perfect sense, since this is the sort of odd coupling that seems possible only when your BAC gets you confused with a jug of moonshine.
