Klansmen for Clinton rise again

So the rumor is the Ku Klux Klan raised $20,000 for Hillary.

From Vocative:
A prominent Ku Klux Klan leader says that the group has raised thousands of dollars for Hillary Clinton’s campaign and that the Klan is officially endorsing the Democratic frontrunner for president — a claim the Clinton campaign vigorously denies.
Shortly after setting a giant cross on fire with dozens of other members of various white nationalist groups in Georgia on Saturday, Will Quigg, a Grand Dragon in a California branch of the KKK, sat down with Vocativ — which was there for a larger reporting trip about the modern state of the hate group — to talk about the 2016 election. According to Quigg, “For the KKK, Clinton is our choice.”
“She is friends with the Klan,” Quigg said. “A lot of people don’t realize that. She’s friends with Senator [Robert] Byrd. He’s been an Exulted Cyclops in the Klan. He’s been King Kleagle.” (King Kleagle is another KKK title for the leader of an entire “realm,” or state. Quigg is the King Kleagle for California.) Robert Byrd is a former U.S. senator from West Virginia. In the 1940s, Byrd organized and served as the leader of a Klan chapter in West Virginia. Byrd has long since disavowed the Klan and called his involvement “wrong.” In 2010, Hillary Clinton called Senator Byrd a “friend and mentor.”
Quigg said that he and other Klan members have raised more than $20,000 for the Clinton campaign and donated it anonymously.
“In the Bible, it says when you pray, pray in a closed, dark place by yourself,” Quigg said. “Do not pray on the street corners where people can see you … that’s why I got $20,000 together and sent it to Hillary Clinton’s campaign anonymously.”
I have my doubts, but that is the claim.


  1. Sounds legit to me. The Klan was considered a wing of the Democrat Party by many, and they were so for eugenics they invited Margaret Sanger to speak to them. Hmmm, I wonder... 2009 Margaret Sanger Award Winner: U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. - Elric

  2. Willie's political idol was Orval Faubus, so this surprises me not a bit.

    1. I can not comment anything. but thanks for the review of information

    1. Good point Mark, particularly the reference to David "It is treason if you don't vote for Trump" Duke.
      Interesting post Don, but time to move on folks. Nothing here to see.

    2. Thank you Anon. I deleted the original post and moved it below after making a single change. Unfortunately, there is no "edit" function in this particular blog format.

    3. I am at the mercy of Google on comments. Ordinarily I would have deleted a deleted comment but I was too late.

  4. In all honesty, this might conceivably be a false flag operation, possibly hatched by someone to counteract the David Duke mini-scandal that attached to Trump a little while back (his failure to immediately denounce/repudate Duke's endorsement/non-endorsement).

    The white racism inherent in the Democratic Party is largely that of the patronizing "give 'em money and use them as electoral fodder and as human shields and as clubs with which to bash white non-Democrats but don't actually live near them" mantra of the hipsters and the Democratic donor class.

    The modern-day Democratic Party's version of the more vitriolic type of racism is largely that of anti-white racism, not the traditional kind.

    All of the Democratic candidates, including HRC, have found it necessary and/or desirable to kiss the ring of "Black Lives Matter" -- or BM, as I like to call them, eliminating the middle initial for the purpose of brevity.

    I'm a little skeptical that this mindset would interest the Klan in terms of their search for the next president.

    It's probably the last election for that sort of pandering the Democrats do to African-Americans. The party is pivoting to Hispanics, following Obama's scheme to transform America. What surprises me is why the nominal leaders of the black community, so steadfastly loyal to the Democrats, have not called out Obama on this obvious transition in political alliance. Aren't they losing their influence and power? Isn't he being a traitor to his black brothers and sisters? Shouldn't they consider the possibility that, in the not too distant future, they'd find a more welcoming home in the Republican camp?

  6. Will Shrillary be as quick to denounce this claim as she was to denounce Charles Koch?
