The KKK is reportedly trying to set up neighborhood watch programs throughout the country. I found instances of this in Missouri, Tennessee, and Connecticut. The first thought that came to mind was that this was fake. But in the USA Today video of Tennessee, someone at the organization takes ownership of sending out fliers.
There is nothing wrong with neighborhood watch but nobody wants it associated with hate and racism. The left is probably going to use this in some way.
(Missouri) From KY3:
Some neighbors on the city’s west-central side were surprised by an “invitation” that landed in their yards. The notice bore the name of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
Complete with the image of a hooded figure, the flyer attempts to recruit people for a so-called neighborhood watch program. It asks, “Are there troubles in your neighborhood? Contact the…Klan today.”
“That just tells you what a coward they are. A simple knock at the door, I can say I am not interested, thank you very much and go on. But instead they have to come through in the middle of the night and drop a rock in the front yard. Nah- that is a coward,” Burchett stated.
(Tennessee) From USA Today:
Some Tenn. residents received flyers saying "Neighborhood Watch. You can sleep well tonight knowing the UKA is awake." The UKA is affiliated with the KKK, but a local leader says this isn’t about hate.
(Connecticut) From North Jersey.com:
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and other officials declared Wednesday that the Ku Klux Klan was not welcome in Connecticut after fliers were left in Milford by the United Klans of America advertising a neighborhood watch group.
Members of the group are worried about the safety of Milford’s neighborhoods and the fliers were meant to deter criminals who have been breaking into cars in the city, Bradley Jenkins, imperial wizard of the Alabama-based white supremacist group, said Tuesday. Authorities say there was not a rash of car break-ins.
