Drumming some sense into the KKK

I’ve often wished we could get all the racists together, the brown racists, the black racists and the whiteKlan
racists. A fight would inevitably break out and, with a little luck, we’d have fewer racists in the world. My wish may never come true, not in the way I imagine it, but I’m getting a little satisfaction from what’s happening in Cullman, Alabama, where the KKK is in conflict with … well, the KKK.

Members of one Ku Klux Klan
organization say they will assemble at the courthouse Nov. 10 to show
their opposition to another Klan group that plans an anti-immigration
rally there that day.

Ken Mier, who described himself as an
investigator for the Alabama Ku Klux Klan and the national office of
the Ku Klux Klan LLC, said in an e-mail to The Cullman Times that his
group is against the tactics of the National Knights of the Ku Klux
Klan, which held an anti-immigration protest last month in Athens.

are opposed to the ignorance and stupidity as displayed by the
individuals that thumbed their nose at the area churches by continuing
to use racial slurs, threats and avoided Christian deportment," he said. [Link]

It’s about time the KKK realized the ignorance and stupidity of the KKK. These losers ought to go to school and get an education, instead of trying to feel superior to other races. I’m hoping the KKK ends up drumming some sense into the KKK. Perhaps someday my dream will come true and Wal-Mart will see a big drop in sales of white bed sheets.
