What would really give the KKK a shot in the arm would be if they dropped their racist rhetoric and opened their membership to any American---------irrespective of actual race/ethnicity.

Why would Americans flock to join the Klan if they opened their membership up to anyone? That's like saying Americans would flock to join Hezbollah if they opened up their membership to non-Shiites. You do realize the KKK is the world's oldest terrorist group even though they don't do too much violence anymore, mainly because it took YEARS of law enforcement pressure and court pressure to break the Klan. If the KKK was as strong as they were pre-WW2 they'd be violent as all hell just like back then.

National Council of La Raza are pretty moderate. La Raza Unida are pretty radical, though. I'm not sure which group you're talking about. La Raza Unida are extreme, but they're not violent.

Mecha used to have some pretty weird ideas which they've toned down to an extent, but they're not a terrorist group nor a gang. They still are somewhat radical but not as radical as they used to be, and not a violent organization.

La Eme seems to be turning into more of an actual organized crime group, same goes for Nuestra Familia.

OTOH Mara Salvatrucha are truly international terrorists who have killed far more people on US soil than some groups that are on the international terror list. When's the last time that 17 November or ETA killed anyone on US soil? (The answer, in case you wondered, is "never"). That isn't defending those groups - they deserve to be on the terrorist list - but MS13 should also be on the terrorist list.

The vile reputation of the KKK is impervious to any form of redemption. As a black person, I would NEVER even entertain the thought of affiliating with this repugnant group of bigots. Count me OUT!

The KKK are more hated than any other organization in America for a reason, namely, their history and ideology.

ArizonaBear might as well have been urging people to join NAMBLA if they decided to open up their organization to non-pedophiles.

Absolutely! Thatís another organization that makes my skin crawl. Nothing is more abhorrent than the molestation of children. I really donít understand how NAMBLA is allowed to exist.

Although I'm opposed to illegal immigration, I'd rather have illegal immigrants who aren't involved in violence or extremism in the US than NAMBLA.
