Head of KKK: ‘We are Not Haters, We are Non-Violent Christian Group’

Frank Ancona, whose official title is Imperial Wizard of the Traditional American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, is spreading the word the KKK are not a group of haters, they are just misunderstood.

“We don’t hate people because of their race. I mean, we’re a Christian organization,” he said on Thursday.

The Klan leader blames a couple of no-gooders in the organization for their reputation as racists. “Because of the acts of a few rogue Klansmen our Klansmen are supposed to be murderers and want to lynch black people, and we are supposed to be terrorists, and that is a complete falsehood,” Ancoma stressed, pointing out people in his ‘Christian organization’ simply are not like that.

His organization, however, is to blame for blanketing communities in Virginia and elsewhere with fliers talking about the superiority of the white race, including one claiming “many people have experienced the blacks firsthand” and have seen the “savagery and animalism in many of these people.”

Another flier passed out by the ‘Christian group’ during a late-night flyer raid also outlined their ‘not-violent Christian’ mission to protect the white race by “exalting the Caucasian race and teaching the doctrine of white supremacy.”

Not surprisingly, few are convinced that the KKK has changed its tune, even if Ancona claims the fliers are intended as a ‘recruitment tool’ and not to intimidate their non-white neighbors who just happen to wake up to find the pro-white propaganda on their lawns.

“It’s the same old nonsense,” Virginia  resident Marion L. Bines said. “I thought this stuff was extinct by now. I didn’t think people were still going around with this ignorance.”

Pointing out that the Klan’s paper raid was not going to make her go anywhere, she added that if the group was really doing the Christian thing, they would not have to be doing it under the cover of night or hoods.

“I think it’s a … disgrace,” Bines said. “It’s too bad we didn’t see the person who actually threw it. I would have probably cussed him out and given him a few choice New York words.”
