KKK Leader Says Members Include ‘Police Officers, Paramedics & Judges’

A Ku Klux Klan leader in Florida has suggested that its members might be holding respected and prominent positions throughout local communities across the U.S. A grand dragon who oversees a chapter of the Loyal White Knights of the KKK in central Florida said they currently have “police officers, paramedics and judges” in their local roster of more than 1,000.

“They’re everywhere. What you’ve seen is just the tip of the iceberg right now,” said the man, who was interviewed by WFTV on the condition that his voice was altered and face covered by a Klan robe. “We are just proud to be white.”

The KKK leader denied that the organization was a hate group, although he repeatedly used the N-word to describe black people throughout the interview. A separate Klan member who was interviewed and only identified as “Exalted Cyclops” said he thought it was important to “preserve” the white race. “You start looking at numbers, start looking at census and you realize whites are the minority,” he declared.

Although the KKK had more than two million members back in the 1920s, the current roster is reportedly somewhere between 5,000-8,000. They have taken on an extensive recruiting process in recent months by leaving flyers on the lawns of local communities in the middle of the night. Although the content is highly offensive, it isn’t illegal and falls under First Amendment protection.

    Why did he want his voice altered and his face covered up? I never understood why if they were so proud of who they were, why the white sheets and hoods?

    These people are just like stinkbugs. The only appropriate response is to flush them.

    They’re “proud” to be white, but they’re not proud enough to show their sorry faces! They’re so stupid they don’t even realize the meaning of the word “proud.” You can be proud of something you accomplish, but you can’t be proud of something you have no control over. They didn’t make themselves white! They can be glad they’re white, but not proud! Stupid, pathetic losers!
