    It’s too bad he wasn’t pulled out and beaten.

    Is there video of this incident? No serious injuries? No serious injuries, but multiple felony charges. How fast was he going when he "drove into" this crowd? What was the crowd doing?? I've been watching videos pop up every day for almost two weeks now of rioters blocking highways/streets, bashing peoples' cars who try to drive through, and even pulling people out of their cars and beating the everloving **** out of them, for daring to hope they would be allowed to drive through, on a public highway.

    The guy being a KKK member ... well those people suck. But they're also pretty sad. He qualified for a public defender, so we're talking about poverty or borderline here, i.e. poor white trash. But him being a KKK member doesn't have anything to do with how serious his "offense" was. That is, unless you believe in that "hate crime" baloney that a given crime is even worse if done against a 'protected' person. I'll bet him being a KKK member has a lot to do with how serious the charges against him are though.

    Obviously, if video surfaces of him doing even the equivalent of what the NYPD did a few days ago, I'll change my tune. But I'm skeptical. Skeptical because I've seen Antifa and BLM lie to law enforcement to exonerate their own and condemn others (see my next post below), skeptical because the media has been DESPERATE for a 'white-supremacist' boogie-man to put in the headlines and make into the great scapegoat.

    Maybe his fear of that happening is why this occurred.

    It's easy to say you're the leader when you're the only member

    Do I support their right to assemble protest? Absolutely.

    Violent rioting and looting? Absolutely not.

    Borrowing this from @DonGlock26's thread in Political Issues. Very relevant, isn't it?

    Also notice at about 1:29 in this video, "On Friday afternoon, some protesters told KRDO the driver plowed through the crowd." Liars.

He lost his first campaign for governor in 1922, but four years later, with the secret endorsement of the Ku Klux Klan, he was elected to his first term as governor.

Graves, like Hugo Black, used the strength of the Klan to further his electoral prospects.[23]

    George Gordon[edit]
    George Gordon, a Democrat and Congressman for Tennessee's 10th congressional district, became one of the Klan's first members. In 1867, Gordon became the Klan's first Grand Dragon for the Realm of Tennessee, and wrote its Precept, a book describing its organization, purpose, and principles.[citation needed]

    John Tyler Morgan[edit]
    John Tyler Morgan, a Democrat and the U.S. Senator for Alabama, was the Grand Dragon of the KKK in Alabama.[25][26]

    Edmund Pettus[edit]
    Edmund Pettus, a Democrat and the U.S. Senator for Alabama, was also a Grand Dragon of the KKK in Alabama.[27]

    John W. Morton[edit]

    William L. Saunders[edit]

    John Clinton Porter[edit]
    John Clinton Porter, a Democrat, was a member of the Klan in the early 1920s and served as mayor of Los Angeles.[30]


    Benjamin F. Stapleton[edit]
    Benjamin F. Stapleton, a Democrat, was mayor of Denver in the 1920s–1940s. He was a Klan member in the early 1920s and appointed fellow Klansmen to positions in municipal government. Ultimately, Stapleton broke from the Klan and removed several Klansmen from office.[31]

    Maybe it was Lyndon,

    Klan had proof of Lyndon Johnson having been a member early in Johnson's political career, according to a note in documents relating to the John F. Kennedy assassination that were declassified in 2017

    Ask him what his opinions are on mixed-race relationships in TV commercials. That should give you your answer.

    Just posted the news article. Included the citation.
    Usually turning a light on roaches make them run and hide.

    I'm concerned for you. Did the article make you uncomfortable?
