For some reason I have a hard time feeling bad about what happened to either one of them.

Good work son. Sounds like the typical Klansmen Party. A bunch of ignorant rednecks drinking beer from cans and talking about which race they will attack next. Probably in some field with a bonfire, or illuminated by burning cross-light.

"Train up a child."

The man trained his child in a world of violence and hate and the son showed him he was a good student.

I certainly don't condone the father's choice of groups to join, but it is always disturbing when a son turns vicious on his father.

The son was WISE in quitting his participating in the hate group, I just wished he had simply walked away.

Human garbage all the way around.

Why these people are allowed to procreate is beyond me.

It's always interesting to see people's hateful reactions to any mention of the Klan. It's always the same people who preach tolerance and peace and love who don't see any problem with physically injuring someone whom they disagree with.

The fact that this man was part of the Klan is irrelevant to the story. He's entitled to the same legal protections as everyone else and did not deserve to be beaten like that, regardless of his beliefs. I, for one, wish him a swift recovery.

another case of white on white crime lol. I gotta be honest, I'm not to sad to see such highly aclaimed individuals such as these two get what they got. The lord works in mysterious ways.

From what I've heard (take it as you will), it was simply bad blood between the two -- it had nothing to do (at the time of the fight) with the KKK.

Are you guys familiar with the Berrys and the crazy things they've tried to do in the name of white power?

The fact that the "father" is pretty much done with his son should be viewed as the best gift the son has ever received.

Where are all of the racist tody??? They seem to be silent on this one. These groups hate black, jews, mexicans and gays....etc. When they go to jail for their stupidity, they normally join a white gang. In jail they normally have sex with their white gang members. Kinda defeats their purpose. Any hate group is sheer stupidity. Move on with your lives people and do something productive. NEWSFLASH!!!!AMERICA WILL ONLY BECOME MORE DIVERSE.

These boards don't have to be filled every day with people bashing each other because they have conflicting racial views.

It appears from the article that the fight wasn't about the KKK. The Star loves to stir controversy, so they threw in the bit about the son leaving the KKK. This was some drunken brawl where an unruly son beat his father to the point he had to be on a respirator.

If you want to have a racial discussion, I could go into pages and pages of why hate groups are wrong or ineffective (in my opinion...because no matter what, I'd fight for their right to be able to speak freely even if I think they're opinion is wrong) without bashing others.

This just isn't the place and we don't need to be brutal in every discussion on this site.

Beating is wrong especially of a parent however,when you raise your children in a hateful enviornment, they will eventually turn on you like dogs do.

How many Black people did he beat during his lifetime. I'm glad it was the son who did it on earth because he has to face another SON when he dies!!

See what happens when hate breeds hate. The father is a loser and maybe the son will continue to see the light. Even a beating could not knock sense into the father. Shameful man.
