"Ancona contends, ”We don’t hate people because of their race. We are a Christian organization. Because of the acts of a few rogue Klansmen, all are supposed to be murderers and wanting to lynch Black people and we’re supposed to be terrorists. That’s a complete falsehood.”
The Klansman, who has been heading his chapter for the past six years, is adamant about changing the organization’s public image. Ancona maintains that there is nothing morally or ethically wrong in wanting to keep his race White, telling NBC 12, “We want to stay White. It’s not a hateful thing to want to maintain White supremacy.” [Source]
A "Christian organization" indeed. In fact, they used the bible to justify a lot of their actions back in the day. I suspect that this is still the case.
I am not sure why there is a need for a new public relations push, since the election of America's first black president has caused membership in organizations such as the klan to increase dramatically.
“There are at least 1,000 White power organizations operating in the United States, either under the name of the Ku Klux Klan or under other names with the exact same agenda and beliefs.” Clary also states that the “FBI, SPLC, and ADL put support and membership at an all-time alarming rate.”
Damn! And all this because Canaan thought it was cool to make fun of his naked father.
Speaking of which, the movie about Canaan's father is drawing criticism because of its historical inaccuracies.
Think about that for a minute. Like these people really know what went down with that big flood.
No wonder Russell Crowe is upset.
"Noah has been panned for its inaccuracies, but Crowe insisted it’s a very respectful film and took a few shots at critics speaking out before actually seeing it.
“We’ve had probably over a year now of harsh criticism from a bunch of people who have put their name and stamp on an opinion that’s not even based on the movie or seeing the movie, just an assumption of what it could be or how bad it could be or, you know, how wrong it could be in their eyes. Which, you know, I think quite frankly is bordering on absolute stupidity.”He added it has a universal message that you can appreciate whether you’re religious or not."
Yes Russell, we can always use a good message.
