KKK HEINOUS LEGACY

“Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him.”
–President Abraham Lincoln

The KKK is the most notorious and heinous terrorist group in American history.
The first KKK entity was born in Pulaski, Tennessee by six former confederate soldiers.
The hate group called themselves the Ku Klux Klan; their siganture was the burning cross.

On January 12th 1865 General William T. Sherman issued Special Field Order Number 15 which prescribed newly freed slaves shall be given forty acres of land. The KKK came into being right after Special Field Order 15 by General Sherman.
Since 1865 the KKK has terrorized, burned, lynched, shot and killed innocent black Americans. I am always at a loss for words when I see these people today in their white sheets proudly displayed on social media, Twitter.

Do these people have a sense of their legacy?
Do they understand all of the blood they have spilled over the past two centuries?
How can any decent society tolerate the existence of such a group bent on hate and murder?
The KKK is the worst terrorist group in our nation today, yesterday and tommorrow; how do we allow
this group to have a place in any part of any community in America?

The KKK is responsible for thousands and thousands of deaths in America.
Let’s take a look at just three events that bring tears tomy eyes, even now.

Sunday, September 15, 1963 Birmingham, Alabama 4 Black girls are killed by the KKK;
four Ku klux Klan members planted 15 sticks of dynamite beneath the front steps of
the Sixteenth Street Babtist Church in Birmingham killing four little girls and seriously
injuring 21 others.

On a summer’s night, June 21, 1964 Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner were stalked, shot,
burned, and thrown to the bottom of a river in Mississippi by the KKK.
James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner were working to help prepare the poor
blacks in Mississippi to register and vote.

On March 25, 1965 Viola Liuzzo, a housewife and mother of five children was shot in the head and killed
by members of the Ku Klux Klan. Viola Luizzo was only 39 years old. These are just a few of the many
terrorist acts carried out by this heinous hate group called the Ku klux Klan.

A final note:
In all of these cases the Klan members were never held to fully account for the killings of the people
listed.

I call this outrageous injustice!
