They are a far-left organization, not a far-right organization as the article claims. The Democratic Party gave us the Ku Klux Klan, Black Codes, Jim Crow Laws and other repressive legislation which resulted in the multitude of murders, lynchings, mutilations, and intimidations of thousands of black and white Republicans.
On the issue of slavery: Democrats fought to expand slavery while Republicans fought to end it. Democrats passed those discriminatory Black Codes and Jim Crow laws. Democrats supported and passed the Missouri Compromise to protect slavery.
Democrats supported and passed the Kansas Nebraska Act to expand slavery. Democrats supported and backed the Dred Scott Decision. Democrats opposed educating blacks and murdered our teachers. Democrats fought against anti-lynching laws. Democrats passed the Repeal Act of that overturned civil right laws enacted by Republicans.
Neither does left-wing mean "democrat". Nothing worse than a person who thinks he knows a secret "conspiracy" to alter history, and feels the evangelical spirit of the "newly converted" in spamming the world with his absurd nonsense.
Of course, he'll probably never read Southern Strategywhich explains why his distorted "Conservative Talk Show Host" version of "history" is nothing but spin, attempting to attribute the misdeeds of Right-Wing Democrats to modern Liberal ones, and the great deeds of Liberal Republicans like MLK to modern Conservative ones.
This coalition of southern Democrats and northern Right-Wing Republicans defeats every proposed bill on civil rights. The name means "Circle of Brothers. Sources discussing "kuklos" or "clan" are not discussing "Ku Klux Klan", the topic of this article.
That Wiktionary and the freedictionary. I'm changing the text to read "suggests a circle or band of brothers". If you have other reliable sources discussing the meaning of "Ku Klux Klan" or reason to believe the cited source is not reliablelet's talk.
I've written this on the talk page, and, if anyone is interested, i would appreciate feedback from wikipedians familiar with the issues around KKK wiki pages.
Any organization with "Ku Klux Klan" in the title is obviously eligible, but what about groups that don't such as the Knights of the White Camilia, Black Legion etc.?
Here is the solution I propose for the post reconstruction groups: If it merely had overlapping membership, or cooperated with KKK - like the Citizens CouncilsNational States' Rights PartyAmerican Nazi Party - that should be excluded because those groups were never organically part of a group using the KKK title, nor using the Klan regalia, nomenclature, secret pass words etc.
I also think its unnecessary to add front groups or action squads to the list, as these were merely segments of parent KKK groups. I'm of two minds about auxiliaries such as women's and youth groups -- perhaps they should be listed with notice of their link to the parent Klan.
Finally, I plan on making pages for generic names that have been used by a number of Klan groups ie, Original Knights, Invisible Empire, Confederate Knight etc.After the decline of the national organization, small independent groups adopted the name "Ku Klux Klan," along with variations. They had no formal connection to the second KKK, except for the fact that they copied its terminology and costumes.
The Brotherhood of Klans (BOK) has long been one of the largest and most widespread Ku Klux Klan organizations in the United States. It’s also the only KKK faction to establish chapters outside the U.S., with a sizable presence in Canada. Formation of secret societies began to form, such as the Ku Klux Klan, as a result of African American’s obtaining the right to vote.
The Ku Klux Klan was a very violent organization, one that condoned assaulting and killing of African Americans. Nov 12, · Ku Klux Klan groups are diversifying their aims and marketing themselves to people of color.
But these moves aren't new: The Klan has long tried to . "The Ku Klux Klan (KKK), or simply "the Klan", is the name of a terrorist organization guilty of starting three distinct movements in the United States." I reverted on two grounds: 1) Without regard for whether it is correct or not, calling the Klan a "terrorist organization" in the lede is a substantial change that will need to be discussed.
Back in , thousands of Ku Klux Klan members paraded past the U.S. Treasury building in Washington, D.C., as part of a big rally. Throughout its iterations, the KKK has tried to position itself as a respectable, mainstream civic organization.
