Ku Klux Klan chapter leads Neighborhood Watch effort

Homeowners in part of Pennsylvania can sleep peacefully at night knowing the local Ku Klux Klan is awake and keeping an eye on things.

Or, at least that’s what a flyer distributed in Fairview Township suggests.

PennLive.com reports a chapter of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan decided to start patrolling the streets because they believe local police are not doing enough to combat break-ins in the area.

Local police say they are aware of the flyers, which feature the comforting sight of a hooded figure pointing an accusatory finger of justice, but won’t be investigating who dispersed them.

Local media, and the police, don’t seem to know who will actually be doing the patrolling, since no member of the Klan in the central Pennsylvania town has been identified. Those purchasing sheets during the most recent “White Sale” must have used cash.

The imperial wizard of the Traditionalist American Knights says the group will not be targeting minorities.

“It’s just like any neighborhood watch program. It’s not targeting any specific ethnicity. We would report anything we see to law enforcement,” said Frank Ancona, who said anyone who is not in the KKK is “an alien.”

The Klan has set up a 24-hour telephone hotline so people can report problems or potentially order up a burning cross in the yard of people they don’t like.

Local police say the area the neighborhood watch patrols doesn’t have an unusual amount of unsolved crimes.

“I would say if residents … have any information about [police not doing enough to combat crime], they should contact the police department. Contacting the [KKK] hotline seems like the wrong place to turn,” said Lt. Jason Loper, acting chief of the Fairview Township Police Department who could probably be a lot more effective if he wasn’t just “acting.”

Meanwhile, in Virginia, an Easter egg hunt was made less pleasant by racist messages aimed at children.

Can we do an article on the thugs playing the knockout game on white people where they attack them out of nowhere? How about an article on the number of murders they commit each day? I think that’s a little worse than this.

Lotta hooey about nuthin. If anything it’s interesting that these klansmen insist on outing themselves. They could’ve just taken on the hoodwatch without reporting the Klan is involved. Oh well, I guess that’s part of their schtick. They want the attention.

Pennsylvania lol! A co-worker once got a Klan business card left in their mailbox, it said:

You have just been paid a Social visit by the White Knights of the Ku Klu Klan, don’t make the next visit a Business Call.

I thought that sh!t was funny as hell because it didn’t take him long to get that trashy front yard cleaned up and those cars off cinder blocks,…… after that. Guess he was trying to avoid the business call.

“burn a cross on somebody lawn that you dont like..” Really? I live in a fence in yard meaning you will have to Jump the fence to plant your cross. My german shephereds will be waiting to tear those white sheets right off your ass and i will be waiting with my 38special to shoot you right in your ass when you try to run into the house or as you run around my back yard screaming while my dogs tear your KKK funky sheet wearing ass up. Have a nice day.

Since all you hate the KKK why dont you get the Mafia to patrol the streets. You know how loving and kind they are. Is it not strange you keep downing the KKK who has done far less than the Mafia. As a matter of fact Hollywood comes out with a movie about them every other year. There is no murder and mayhem is there? Not with the mafia but let someone with a sheet walk the street and its judgement day.

The hilarity of all the “you know those minorities commit all the crimes”. I could pull up all the websites and crime states from here to Tallahassee of all the people committing thefts, murders, etc. related to meth. Guess the make-up of that genre? Keep on telling yourself that mantra if it helps you sleep, though.

I’m not a Klan supporter by any stretch of the imagination. This move is similar to actions taken by the Klan in the 1920’s during a resurgence sparked by D.W. Griffiths film “Birth of a Nation.”While the Klan committed terrorist acts they also helped struggling families with financial support. It is similar to actions taken by the Black Panthers, who started pre-schools, feeding programs for children, and other socially helpful acts. I fear for the fact that one can kill during neighborhood patrols and be found innocent. That sets the situation for disaster.

yes the Democrats before the 1960-70-80s were the oppressors. Once Keneedy was elected and civil rights were implemented, those same people became REPUBLICANS and have been ever since. Most minorities were republicans before now. those are the facts. Which many posters think people with brains don’t realize!!!

America’s greatest delima.

We want to:

1. Guarentee the rights of all
2. But deny the rights of those who don’t look or think like “we” do.
3. Preach that we live in the land of the brave and the free.

How do we fix it?

How can we tell the rest of the world that in America everyone is equal and are treated the same – and yet we as Americans know this is not true.

The right wing says.

1. I have a right to bear arms
2. I have the right to tell you you must speak English.
3. I have the right to tell you who you can marry and who you can’t
4. And dog gone it – you better not take MY rights away.

The left:

1. I have the right to tell you – you can’t bear arms.
2. I have the right to tell you I can marry who ever I (*&* well please.
3. I have the right to tell you you don’t have the right to tell me to speak English.

LOL :)

Everybody wants their rights…

KKK you have the right…..

Gays you have the right too.

So there you have it – we all have the RIGHTS…………..

GOD BLESS AMERICA

Get WITH IT already! Get an AR-15, AK-47 or 12 gauge shotgun (or all three) and stop poking fun with the .38 special. My 130 lb. wife carries one of those little things for crying out loud. No self respecting man protects his home and family (especially from the KKK) with a .38 special, because you better believe they have what I listed and then some close by. Reality check.

First of all, how did you derive “BBC” from Conners’s name? Here’s what YOU should do, get control of your own home partner. Secondly, I didn’t tell BCC what he should do. I simply commanded him to “get with it” (I think that’s called chiding by the way). Not my loss if he cannot protect his family and property with a pea shooter.

Now come MY way, and it’s a different story. Guaranteed.
