    A prominent Ku Klux Klan leader says that the group has raised thousands of dollars for Hillary Clinton’s campaign and that the Klan is officially endorsing the Democratic frontrunner for president—a claim the Clinton campaign vigorously denies.

    Shortly after setting a giant cross on fire with dozens of other members of various white nationalist groups in Georgia on Saturday, Will Quigg, a Grand Dragon in a California branch of the KKK, sat down with Vocativ—which was there for a larger reporting trip about the modern state of the hate group—to talk about the 2016 election. According to Quigg, “For the KKK, Clinton is our choice.”

    “She is friends with the Klan,” Quigg said. “A lot of people don’t realize that. She’s friends with Senator Byrd. He’s been an Exulted Cyclops in the Klan. He’s been King Kleagle.” (King Kleagle is another KKK title for the leader of an entire “realm,” or state. Quigg is the King Kleagle for California.) Quigg was referring to the late U.S. senator Robert Byrd from West Virginia, who organized and served as the leader of a West Virginia Klan chapter in the 1940s. In 2005, Byrd publicly disavowed the Klan and called his involvement “wrong.” Upon the senator’s death in 2010, Hillary Clinton called Byrd a “friend and mentor.”

    Former Klan leader David Duke previously endorsed Trump in the 2016 presidential campaign—an endorsement Trump didn’t immediately disavow. Duke, however, does not speak for the Klan, according to Quigg.

    As for Clinton, “All the stuff she’s saying now, she’s saying so she can get into office, okay? She doesn’t care about illegal immigrants—she’s acting like she does so she can get into office. Once she’s in office, then she’ll implement her policies. She’s a Democrat. The Klan has always been a Democratic organization,” Quigg said.

    I bet they also felt really, really weird having to vote for Obama twice in a row.

    "Doesn't this go against everything we stand for, Steve Bob?"

    "He's half white, Earl Ray. Just close your eyes, and pretend you're voting for the racially pure, superior half."

    "...but how can he be racially pure if he's half..."

    "JUST TAKE ONE FOR THE TEAM, EARL RAY! THE PARTY NEEDS YOU!"

    Afterwards, they met up with the New Black Panthers to intimidate voters.

    So when Hamas endorsed Obama, that made him a terror group sympathizer, right?

    By the way, Obama's response was he was "flattered." Trump did not say the sane about the KKK.

    I endorse this thread. Mostly because there's always a need for a little wingnut action to act as a counterweight for the moonbat, and vice versa.

    When pressed between two extremes, sanity is strengthened, like coal to diamond.

    KKK Leader Endorses Trump: ‘What He Believes In, We Believe In’

    April 30, 2016, 10:25 AM EDT

    In a sit-down interview with a Richmond news station, the Imperial Wizard of the Rebel Brigade Knights of the Ku Klux Klan said Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump is his candidate for President.

    The KKK leader, identified by WWBT only as “Imperial Wizard,” also insisted his organization is not a hate group, telling the station’s black anchor, “We don’t hate anyone.”

    Asked who he was supporting in the 2016 race, the wizard replied: “I think Donald Trump would be best for the job.”

    "The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes in, we believe in. We want our country to be safe,” he said.

    The leader went on to say if Trump were to drop out, he would back Ohio Gov. John Kasich before Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), saying Cruz “is not an American citizen” because he was born in Canada.

    ~~~

    It's not the first time Trump has earned the support of the KKK. Former leader David Duke endorsed the Republican in February, sparking outrage over Trump's delayed response in distancing himself from Duke.

    Yeah, I'm sure you'll get one from him. Actually, David Axelrod, when told of the "endorsement" (which they reminded after an Obama speech to AIPAC) said he was flattered over the comparison to JFK in their "endorsement".

    Update:

    http://www.snopes.com/kkk-endorses-hillary-clinton/

    "unproven"

    It's unlike the other situation - where we think the Earth is 6000 years old, readily disproved by any number of carbon dating and other verifiable tests involving extrapolation and the sort of algebra or calculus we never use in "the real world"*... Humankind probably first how to perceive and rationalize closer to 6000 years ago...

    Ugh. See how divisive this election is? Even the KKK cannot agree on who to support! :p
