You see, it seems the KKK has started up a new neighborhood watch program—and no, this is not satire.
Some residents in Springfield were greeted by a flier in their front yards the other morning from none other than the local area Ku Klux Klan. While most groups seeking to advertise something they’re wanting to promote might stick paper fliers on cars, put a few yard signs out or staple a couple of advertisements on a few light poles—the KKK didn’t quite go that route.
Oh no, they took their fliers, then used a rubber band to attach them to rocks and threw them into residential yards overnight. Because nothing says “sleep well” quite like the KKK throwing rocks into your yard while you’re sleeping.
But this isn’t just an isolated KKK group that’s starting a neighborhood watch, apparently this is part of a nationwide push from the KKK to recruit local residents to be a part of their neighborhood watch.
Let that sink it for a moment. A racially driven hate group is behind a national push to recruit citizens for a neighborhood watch program.
Oh, but don’t worry, a spokesman for the KKK says citizens can rest assured that race will play no part in who they see as a threat. Because it’s perfectly logical to believe a hate group driven by racism could separate themselves from their ignorance while “fighting crime.”
If a group of Klan “neighborhood watch” members saw an African American male and a white male walking down the street late at night, they would certainly see both equally as threatening.
That’s completely believable—if you’re an idiot.
I can just see our neighborhoods now. Three in the morning, the streets mostly empty—except for the group of white supremacists in pointed hoods walking around town “helping the police deter crime.” I know it makes me feel safer already, how about you?
Couple that with these “stand your ground” laws which essentially gives people the right to kill someone that they “deem as a threat”—in no way could the KKK use their “neighborhood watch” as a means to hunt down and kill minorities.
That would be “absurd,” wouldn’t it? Oh wait—no it wouldn’t.
