The KKK and Immigration with Links to the Minutemen

by Repost Saturday, Nov. 11, 2006 at 3:03 PM

The KKK were the first to have a border patrol.

There is enough material here for any thinking person with an open mind to realize there are tenuous links at the very least, and the strong possibility of much strong links between the minutemen, et. al and the KKK.

Fair and balanced - the KKK's view.

The entire anti-immigration movement has its roots in the post WWI KKK.

This poster is fascinating, published in 1924.

In a recent NPR piece by Adam Burke, the residents of Olathe, CO expressed outrage at the KKK anti-immigration activities there.

From a recent SPLC report on anti-immigration factions:

"...[TX] Protesters arrested at KKK immigration rally

Odessa American / June 18, 2006

Several people were arrested while protesting a KKK anti-illegal immigration rally Saturday afternoon at the Midland County Courthouse. Before the Klan even arrived, police and portions of the crowd physically collided ... About 25 members or supporters of a San Angelo-based KKK group stood in front of the courthouse and were met with a vocal crowd of more than 300. [...] Steven Edwards, the leader of the Empire Knights of the Ku Klux Klan of Texas, said he is racist, but that racism means a love of one's own race, not hatred for another. The Klan chose Midland as the location for their rally, Edwards said, because it's the home of President George W. Bush. He said he hopes Bush hears about the event. "A wall or a fence should be put up around the country," he said. Big Spring's Mike Peterson, founder of Ameriskins, was one of the Klan's supporters standing by their side. "America needs to take care of Americans first. This country was made by white Europeans for white Europeans..."

Thanks to the ADL we know the fall schedule for some of these groups.

To understand the role the KKK has played in the whole anti-immigration scene, one must delve through their 'interesting' history. We also need to face that fact that the first real, restrictive anti-immigration laws were passed after being promoted by the KKK in the 1920's. Up until that time, some 2.5 million people from Mexico freely moved across our borders for seasonal work. One could even make the case that these restrictions helped to increase the poverty level in Mexico, just as they will, again.

I know our dear RINOconservative pundits and celebs refuse to believe the KKK is involved in the whole anti-immigration thing, but check this out and you may find it isn't an isolated case. And The Nation version of the Alabama rally. And some NC problems. Hispanic Vista has a page of links connecting the KKK to various states, organizations, an rallys.

AZ GOP Congressional candidate Randy Graf endorsed by David Duke. Read about it in Migra Matters. The sidebar to the right of the web page has excellent, documented information about immigration and illegal immigration.

David Newirt's Oricus can fill you in on the back story.

Why is it the only people who don't believe there are serious problems within the anti-immigration organizations and their ties to unsavory characters are our RINOconservatives? From the Dem Blog for Arizona...

"...There is a certain irony in the fact that extreme right wing movements tend to end up victimizing the very people they claim to fight for. In the heyday of the KKK, for example, when it was at the appogee of its influence and membership, Stetson Kennedy documented how KKK leaders used the organization to bilk rank and file members, and enrich themselves. That behavior and its exposure, along with the large degree of bunkum at the core of the organization's mystique, arguably led to the fatal decline of the Klan; the story is compellingly told in the popular book Freakonomics.

It may well be the latest populist expression of nativist/racist sentiment may burn out in a similar fashion due to the greed, duplicity, and in-fighting of the movement's leadership. Chris Simcox is being accused from within the Minuteman movement of financial improprieties which may end up discrediting the movement and imploding civil border partol ..."

Too bad our conservative friends don't realize that the SPLC can be trusted. If so, they would have their eyes opened. Or this would offer some insight into the background of the people promoting anti-immigration.

Are they minutemen, et. al or KKK?
