KKK GROUPS ACTIVE IN 2017

The organized Ku Klux Klan movement saw a boost in its membership in 2017.

In fact more than half of today's Klans formed in the last three years.

Some 42 different Klan groups were active in 22 states as of June 2017, a slight increase from early 2016, according to a report from the Anti-Defamation League, a nonpartisan civil rights advocacy group. The Klan, known for promoting white supremacist and white nationalist ideas, has captured recent public attention amid fallout from a weekend marked by race-fueled clashes.

President Donald Trump mentioned the movement by name on Aug. 14 during a speech from the White House in response to the violent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. The rally resulted in clashes with counterdemonstrators that left one woman dead and more than a dozen injured.

"Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans," Trump said.

The president's comments followed mounting criticism of what many considered a weak initial response to the weekend violence, and several politicians called on Trump to explicitly name the KKK and other white nationalist groups. Current KKK groups have continued to be linked to criminal activity and violence reminiscent of the earliest waves of the Klan.

In addition to the more than 40 identified Klan groups, the ADL tracked Klan activity to 11 other states during that same time, including some states perceived to be more liberal, like California. The ADL tracked the movement from January 2016 to June 2017.

Nationwide, there are still an estimated 3,000 Klan members and unaffiliated people who "identify with Klan ideology," according to the ADL. Membership, though, remains spread across dozens of groups. The largest Klans reportedly don't have more than 50 to 100 active members, and most have fewer than 25.

Keeping with historical trends, the ADL noted the groups and activity are largely concentrated in the southern and eastern parts of the nation. Mississippi was found to house the most with five groups, followed by Alabama with four.

The group over time has proved outspoken on a number of issues, pushing anti-immigration and anti-Semitic views and advocating for "purification" of American society. Most recently, the Klan has denounced other activist social movements, such as Black Lives Matter.

The viewpoints are often publicly permitted under free speech protections.

Among its recent activity, the KKK movement has included small rallies and protests in parks, at courthouses and during LGBT pride marches. In some cases, groups have joined forces to bolster numbers at different events.

Still, some groups have promised marches that haven't materialized, and the organized movement has rarely proven stable, according to the ADL.

"The organized Ku Klux Klan movement continues to struggle due to several factors, including infighting, the perception among adherents that current Klan groups (or their leaders) are not authentic, as well as competition for membership from other white supremacist movements," the ADL notes. "These include the surging 'Alternative right' and a rising number of white supremacist prison gangs."

Politics is about building a crowd.

Who cares if the crowd shrieks SEIG! HEIL! until blood gushes out of their eyes?

Why do you hate unity?

320+ million people. 320+ million people. 320+ million people. Fucking 3,000 of them are a concern? You'd literally have an easier time finding a legit needle in a haystack versus a public encounter with a KKK member. Explain why this is a problem? And then why this isn't a problem in your world? https://heyjackass.com

3,000 poor white trash people "talking" about "niggers" and you've got a city where they just shoot each other all the time? I'm sure the klan is to blame for this problem, right? Your priorities and faux outrage are so misdirected it's not even funny anymore. You are the symptom to a societal problem with the fact you've even posted anything about the kkk. Make them relevant. You just posted a screen shot of a graphic for kkk annual flier distribution for what? What's the end goal? Flier distribution?

More people ate tide pods. There are 5 times as many members of the church of Satan. There are more members in that NXIVM sex trafficking club than KKK members.

KKK is as irrelevant as a group could be.

Yet, during the 2016 election cycle the KKK got more press per member than the Golden State Warriors.

Propaganda much?

Still going to need that KKK landing page and sign up sheet. What you saying that the KKK is now a secret society of Bat Man Billionaires and don't need active fund raising and new membership drive?

Jazz really why are you spreading misinformation? Do you honestly believe that in 2020 the KKK are a REAL Threat?

A fucking Senator can't even eat in peace in a fucking public Restaurant without being harassed and chased off. And the Police will just sit there and watch and not do a damn thing about it. NOW If there really were KKK(Of course there are KKK, but I mean if they were Trump supporters like you are fantasizing about) wouldn't the Soros ANTIFA Army harangue them and make their life difficult? I mean if your chart there has actual counts of groups, then they must know where they are. Why hasn't Open Borders Society sent the Antifa there to fuck their shit up. Why hasn't a zealot Liberal Congress critter called them to Congress to testify? There are so many fucking what IF's I could do this for hours.

One thing for sure, the Antifa are hell bent on suppressing Trump supporters and give three shits about the KKK real, invented or otherwise? Where is the KKK Doxing, and violent threats against them?

Either give a real honest answer to these questions, or I'm going to have to write you off to the realm of HeyYou, and not take one thing you say seriously.

Desperation. What will the Left's platform be if there's truly little to no racism from White people?

Some people fantasize about the KKK returning so they can be victims and have a legit reason to cry.

Here are SOME of the active groups from ONE white nationalist website. Stormfront.org

I'm listening to their radio show right now. Some of you sound the same with your talking points and your butthurt, pulling a lot of fake facts out of their asses.

The Storm front was exposed as a Liberal LARP trying to drag Gab down from the get go. They are savaged and laughed at by every Conservative out there.
Every high profile person that once associated with them left. Because it started out with the "Storm" being the law that "Trump" was going to bring to the Swamp.

When it was realized it was nothing more than a Liberal Arts installation to suck in Patriots then smear them all as KKK and Nazis they lost all credibility from everyone but the Liberals that still thinks they are relevant.

Did you click on any of those links and try to figure out if they were more than just slick web code?

No Now Calm down don't go and radicalize yourself listening to that vile racist rubbish.

How come Liberals get to listen to that shit but you make up Conservatives listening to it, when we don't?

Exactly. If you don't like their viewpoint, WTF would you listen to a radio show on it? I guess up is down and left is right now.

It's obvious Trump not getting indicted for Russian collusion has made some people just grasp for straws at this point. It's over. It's been almost 3 years and basically 4 since getting into the race for '16. I don't agree with everything he does, but I understand he's the President and there ain't anything you can do about it. Not even impeachment. Move on Jazz. Maybe let's help poor communities reshape and reform themselves? Or we could just let them shoot each other dead times 10 fold of kkk membership.

@WookieMan white power and KKK rate of growth.

Half of their members have joined in the last 3 year period.

Apparently that fact doesn't sink in with you.

They didn't just stop recruiting and growing after Trump took office. They did the opposite. They see that their time is now.
