The Kloran-The KKK handbook

June 1, 2009 at 6:50 pm (KKK)

The KKK is America’s most feared Christian terrorist group.

In 1915, the second Klan was founded. It grew rapidly in a period of postwar social tensions, where industrialization in the North attracted numerous waves of immigrants from southern and eastern Europe and the Great Migration of Southern blacks and whites. In reaction, the second KKK preached racism, anti-Catholicism, anti-Communism, nativism, and anti-Semitism. Some local groups took part in lynchings, attacks on private houses and public property, and other violent activities. Members used ceremonial cross burning to intimidate victims. The Klan committed the most murders and violence in the South, which had a tradition of lawlessness.

The Kloran is their ritual handbook. Upon review of the material, it’s more of a script than any real handbook on giving advice.
Here’s a copy of one of the early revisions of the Kloran (1963 edition): https://docs.google.com/fileview?id=…NGJmMjgx&hl=en. It appears to be the only copy I can find. Additionally, I found this clip from an episode of Jerry Springer on YouTube. It’s pretty hilarious: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNkRgdcBEbs.
