Normal KKK on Obama: "The South Will Take Care of Him"

http://www.myfoxchicago.com/myfox/pa...Y&pageId=1.1.1

So did the Grand Psycho of the KKK just publicly issue a death threat against a US Senator, or am I missing something?

That's absolutely horrible. Aside from the threat to Obama and his family, the scary thing is that the groups are allegedly growing in numbers.

Obama in '08

First off, I may disagree with the man very much politically, but I certainly dont want him to get murdered.

That being said, I saw this point mentioned on here a couple days ago, and it was somewhat dismissed: I think people drastically underestimate the number of people in this country who just absolutely will not vote for a black candidate. That doesn't say very good things about America, but it's a reality.

Considering the GOP's platform over the last few years, I don't think anyone should be all that surprised.

Yet some still revel in that fact, that makes them just as sad.

The man featured in the video, "Ray Larsen", real name Railton Loy, is the 'International Imperial Wizard' of a small Klan organization called the 'National Knights of the Ku Klux Klan', which is based in northern Indiana (there's no one 'The' Klan, just isolated scattered organizations with highly varying degrees of interconnectedness)--the South Bend metro area specifically, which is *probably* where that segment was filmed; South Bend is fairly close to Chicago, so that's probably why it's Fox Chicago that picked this story up. Whether "Larsen" really has "connections" whom he knows are planning to assassinate Obama if he's elected, or was just relishing the fact that he can shock and frighten people and perhaps score his 'klavern' some intra-Klan PR by offering something that could be construed as either a threat or a speculative prediction, is anyone's guess, but obviously not something the authorities can afford not to take seriously. In their violent days forty years ago it was often the Klan's m.o. for the person who delivered the threat to have no direct connection to the one(s) who carried it out, and in turn for neither to live in the town where the murder was actually committed; plus, as the informant in the video clip points out, ultimately it only takes one vile human being to do such a thing. That said, it seems unlikely that this scumbag would reveal an assassination plot against a national political figure on major-network TV, if there really was a serious plot that he was in the know on.

It's easier to respond to something coming from a specific person or group as opposed to a general statement like "there are lots of Americans who won't vote for a black candidate."

I couldn't watch the rest of that video. That's just too much.
