A growing element in the Virginia GOP is comprised of those who make less and less of an effort to disguise the fact that they are racists and white supremacists. And, if you follow many of the wrongly named "family values" groups, including The Family Foundation, they likewise support a white supremacist agenda. Indeed, the only time they are concerned about blacks is when in comes to duping black pastors to do their bidding as if they were trained circus dogs. Now, the Imperial Wizard of the Virginia KKK is claiming that the Klan is not a hate group, but rather a "non-violent Christian organization." According to this liar/nutcase, the Klan's bad image is all due to "a few Rogue klansmen." The Raw Story has details:
The leader of a Ku Klux Klan group in Virginia says the notoriously racist “Hooded Order” is really just a non-violent Christian organization.Personally, I would put the KKK and The Family Foundation in the same category. Both are hate groups and both seek to maintain white supremacy. TFF is simply more discrete in how it sends out it racist dog whistle signals.
“We don’t hate people because of their race. I mean, we’re a Christian organization,” Frank Ancona, an Imperial Wizard of the Traditional American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, told WWBT on Thursday.
He insisted that the KKK had been unfairly maligned for its acts of violence against black people in the United States.
“Because of the acts of a few rogue Klansmen our Klansmen are supposed to be murderers and want to lynch black people, and we are supposed to be terrorists, and that is a complete falsehood.”
Ancona’s KKK group has been tossing racist fliers onto residents lawns in Chesterfield County in the middle of the night. The fliers include a phone number, an email address and information about two websites that claim the KKK is a non-violent group that is not the “enem[y] of the colored and mongrel races.”
Earlier this month, Ancona told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that “[t]he thing that really gets me is that [people are] saying we’re teaching our children to hate people just because of their race, creed and color, and that’s a complete lie and falsehood.”
He said the racist fliers were an effective recruitment tool.
“In the last 6 years that I’ve been president of this organization I’ve seen the numbers probably triple,” Ancona told WWBT.
“We want to stay white. It’s not a hateful thing to want to maintain white supremacy,” he added.
