The KKK on the rise? Due to the immigration debate?

Guys, I know many of you are against illegal immigration. Just, please, don't give power to any of these KKK idiots. They tried to take over Dominica in the 1980s. Let's not give them any more firepower!

Default Ridiculous

I don't want to know who wrote this article--a journalist that needs to get another job.

No matter what sort of bilge is churned out the public can choose to ignore the sludge.

It is coming to the point that we/collectively either 'Fish or Cut Bait'--work to find solutions that are reasonable or be vulnerable to those who would destroy our way of life. I will never forgive those who work to bring my quality of life down.

Not the time to be be repeating past mistakes in US history.

Yes, the KKK are idiots and it is dispicable if a group like this gets more members due to illegal immigration. But, let's clarify something on that report, it said it estimated 8,000 members nationwide. Now, let's put this into context, this number is spread out across the entire US, meaning these are probably small groups of ultra-rightwing nutjobs. I think this should be the least of our concerns in this country. I find it odd that this is the story chosen to make headlines when a VERY racist and violent group, made up of hardened criminals and murderers, has members by the tens of thousands and it gets little coverage. The Mexican Mafia, just to name one, is estimated to have up to 20,000 members in California alone, and it has recently been on a campaign to eradicate all blacks from Latino neighborhoods in LA. Now this is REAL, racially-motivated violence going on. This is against innocent people, so why is this not catching the headlines on the major news networks? It blows my mind that they will sit here and focus on the nutjobs in the KKK to scare people into thinking that you must be a KKK member if you're against illegal immigration, instead of bringing some truly racist and frightening news to light. Where's our priorities? There's TONS of racist, hate-mongering groups out there, it just depends if you're willing to look beyond the hood and onto any street in a major city, where the real violence happens daily.

I "think" you're trying to get me to start an arguement. Hence, I'm just going to ignore how you quote me constantly.........

LOL... I don't think I've quoted you more than anyone else (probably much less!), but hey, if it makes ya feel special. And no, I wasn't trying to start an argument - I was simply pointing out the irony in your statement.

You have a very good point kdizzle!! What about the little black girl that was killed in an initiation to join a Latino gang and this was barely touched upon. This is just more racial outrage to pit us against each other and make the whites look bad.
It's okay to have a million man march and call it civil rights march. Just listen to what the leaders of those actually think about whites so, what's the difference in a white hate group over Black,Asian or Latino. They all need to go away.
