Ku Klux Klan Offers Up Invitations In The Form Of Candy

The Ku Klux Klan dropped off invitations to join their group in South Carolina in the form of bags of candy. A Seneca subdivision awoke on Sunday to find bags of candy dropped off on their driveways along with literature directing people to “Save our land, join the Klan.”

The literature listed a phone number that led to an automated message discussing KKK efforts against illegal immigration.

Robert Jones told WHNS-TV that he’s the imperial klaliff of the Loyal White Knights and said the effort was part of a recruiting event they hold three times each year. Jones said the phone number receives a whopping 20,000 calls every day. He said that this weekend was their national “night ride”. He said that chapters across the country drop literature overnight, as the South Carolina chapter did late Saturday.

Oconee County resident Bo Morris said he thought it was “unacceptable” to see the bags and literature in his neighborhood.

Another resident, a woman from Seneca who chose not to be identified, said her family was on their way to church Sunday morning when they ran over the bag and stopped to investigate what it was. She said seeing the invitation to join the Ku Klux Klan made her shocked and angry.

“[I] talked to several neighbors. They were very angry, very upset, very ashamed at the same time – that this exists,” the woman said. “Ashamed to face our neighbors that do not have the same color skin that we do.”

Jones said his member don’t target homes for their “national night ride.”

“I mean, we can’t tell who lives in a house, whether they’re black, white, Mexican, gay, we can’t tell that,” said Jones. “And if you were to look at somebody’s house like that, that means you’d be pretty much a racist.”

    They look suspiciously like the Republican Nation committee.

      What a stupid, ignorant, hateful thing to say. It’s intolerant speech like that that keeps our country divided. It is the same as calling Obama an African-born Muslim communist. Grow up!

        Evidently hit a sore spot. What’s the Republican Southern Strategy of 30 years all about? Truth hurts.

        • Timothy Smith

          I called your post for what it was… hateful. I am conservative and not a republican, but calling the GOP the kkk is an outrageous, provocative and untrue characterization. It is counterproductive to the need for this country to stop the hateful rhetoric and work on developing a common vision to move this country forward. Negative vulgar people ought to just shut up for now and let some other voices be heard.

    “Some candy little boy?” Warped even for them. In a whacko way true, but a creep factor of about 7/10.

    So the racist group is trying not to be racist when they leave invitations to join their racist group on everybody’s doorstep, regardless of the races of the people who live there? That’s just weird. It must be really difficult to be a throwback these days.
