They marched up the church aisle to the strains of "Onward, Christian Soldiers" dressed in their trademark white robes and conical-shaped hats.

While that was a great photo of Senator Robert Byrd in his Grand Kleagle's Hood, I don't think this is a good time for WCCO to promote a resumption of Klan activities. They were not a friendly group.

I doubt the Klan could get much of a hood-hold now. Even other idiots think the Klansmen are idiots.

There are only 3 of them left, and they're all in their 90's. I guess it's up to you, Great Lizard.

Mrs. R - Sorry to offend you. I didn't know there were any of you left around here. I was not trying to list all of the unfriendly groups of people in the world. I was just addressing the actual article. BTW, where do you get those sheets and hoods cleaned these days? I'm sure you can't just hang them out on your line to dry!

I think most of us know Senator Byrd's Klan history. What is a mystery is why you feel the need to bring it up in a story about Minnesota.

Your reference was totally pointless and served no other purpose than to make a petty partisan attack. Grow up.

The Southern Poverty Law Center estimates that there are between 5,000 and 8,000 self-identified Klan members in the US. There are about a dozen different organizations that call themselves the KKK (including, right here in Minnesota, the "Brotherhood of Klans Knights of the Ku Klux Klan").

"The Klan" itself has not committed crimes, but members of different Klan groups do. In March 2006, six members of the Nationís Knights of the Ku Klux Klan pleaded guilty to weapons and conspiracy charges in connection with a plan to blow up the Johnston County, North Carolina, courthouse. In August 2005, North Georgia White Knights member Daniel James Schertz pleaded guilty to building pipe bombs designed to blow up buses carrying Mexican and Haitian migrant workers. In 2003, Pennsylvania Klan leader David Hull was convicted of illegal weapons charges in connection with a plot to use hand grenades to attack abortion clinics. Also in 2003, five members of the American Invisible Empire of the Ku Klux Klan were convicted of conspiracy and intimidation charges for burning a cross at the residence of three African-American men in Longville, Louisiana. The Klan tends to attract people with violent and/or criminal tendencies.

Is that enough for you?

Gee, if only the klan could have seen the future of the USA, I wonder if they would have worked thier issues a little harder. I'm not for klan membership, but it is quite amazing to me on the absolute numbers (astronomical amounts) of violent crimes commited by blacks, and yet the morale outrage is at the klan which is now far less a problem (non-existant) by astronomical amounts (absolute numbers)in comparison to do the endless violence commited by blacks. What is the point on such an article? Did some libturd wake up today in a bad mood and felt it was time to dig up some trash and put white Christian America to a whipping post. I tell you, these anti-racists are something else, they're
really advancing the cause of social justice. Do they ever really move out of thier valiant fantasies of saving the day from fighting evil nazi's and klan members. They need to wake up. Think about the poor UofM student who was shot today walking out of his dorm. No, it wasn't Sven and those crazy Swedish gangbangers terrorizing causing the problem. No sireee, it be Tyrone and Deshawn, baby boys of Shaniqua and Lavoris. When can there ever be indepth articles about the violence commited by blacks and thier horrific influence on our culture. Oh, can't do that, the PCers will come charging out in thier defence decrying all the evils rascism.

I think this is a NON-problem. Time for a banana split at Ed's Store at University and Victoria, which will be a for-sure stop on the new light rail when it get built.

The banana splits will be outlawed by the Calorie Police long before a light rail stop is located nearby Ed's.

It's not so much the Klan as the Ku Klux part of it. For that, I simply haven't a "Klu."

Sadly, you're right. These new ones aren't as easy to spot without the pillowcases, but they do a fine job of carrying on the tradition of stupid.

Just to clarify a popular misconception: The Klan's hoods are flat. It's their heads that are pointed.
