• KKK Organizer Tries Recruiting Blacks, Jews; Wants To Work With The NAACP

    No. The headline is not a joke. John Abarr, leader of the Rocky Mountain Knights, is apparently a reformed racist living in Montana.

    Abarr is on a mission to put a new face on the Ku Klux Klan, if you can believe it. “The KKK is for a strong America,” Abarr told the Great Falls Tribune. “White supremacy is the old Klan. This is the new Klan.”

    Mr. Abarr, for his part, is committed to his cockeyed cause.

    Last year Abarr held a secret meeting with members of the NAACP in Casper, Wyoming. His efforts inspired a peace summit including the NAACP and religious groups, scheduled for the summer of 2015.

    “I thought it was a really good organization,” Abarr said to NAACP members. “I don’t feel we need to be separate.”

    However, Abarr’s efforts to white wash–or should I say diversify–the historically racist group is slow going. He’s even receiving pushback from other KKK groups.

    “That man’s going against everything the bylaws of the constitution of the KKK say,” United Klans of America imperial wizard Bradley Jenkins said. “He’s trying to hide behind the KKK to further his political career.”

    But Abarr is pushing forward with his plan to add some color to the Klan.

    I’d suggest he utilize social media more. Abarr’s Twitter account is relatively devoid of any activity, aside from several automated tweets. And this gem.

    This whole story reminds me of a sketch comedy routine by Dave Chappelle. But this is no joke. John Abarr’s passion is palpable. His heart may be in the right place, but if he really wants to improve race relations in America, perhaps there’s a better method than using the banner of a historically racist group responsible for lynching and terrorizing blacks at the best of the Democratic Party.

    What do you think?
