There has been much bantering about who the Ku Klux Klan is really supporting for president. That question has been answered by Will Quigg, the Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan’s California chapter.
It appears that the winner of the “burning cross vote” is Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Quigg endorsed Hillary over Trump because,
“We want Hillary Clinton to win. She is telling everybody one thing, but she has a hidden agenda. She’s telling everybody what they want to hear so she can get elected, because she’s Bill Clinton’s wife, she’s close to the Bushes. [But] once she’s in the presidency, she’s going to come out and her true colors are going to show.”
The Hillary campaign in a press release noted that the KKK has donated $20,000 to Mrs. Clinton’s campaign in the name of and to honor former Democratic Senator from West Virginia, and KKK member, Robert C. “Bob” Byrd, someone former Senator Hillary Clinton called a “true American original… friend and mentor.”
The Hillary 2016 campaign noted:
The Democratic Party co-founded the KKK just as Mrs. Clinton and President Obama co-founded the Islamic State (a.k.a. ISIS).
It is only fitting that we humbly accepted this donation from the KKK in the name of multiculturalism, diversity and with a spirit of embracing our differences.
This donation will be used to get out the vote in Harlem and other black communities such as Baltimore and Philadelphia.
We will be giving away “I Stand with Hillary” t-shirts (below) to every black voter who registers as a Democrat and pledges to vote for Hillary.
The community with the largest black voter turnout will be recognized by the KKK at a special reception during their upcoming national convention to be held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Mrs. Clinton plans on attending the convention as the keynote speaker. Hillary will be speaking on “How I love the Smell of Burning Crosses in the Morning”, no connection to the movie Apocalypse Now or pun intended.
Diana Nash, co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement, noted,
It is time to join forces to defeat the evil, racist, anti-globalization, anti-woman, anti-Muslim Donald J. Trump. We blacks have much more in common with the KKK than we do with the GOP. In the name of restorative justice we are proud to join with our brothers in the KKK. They have been an inspiration for our movement.
While the KKK burns crosses we burn entire communities like Ferguson, Missouri.
While we understand that at one time the KKK systematically and intentionally targeted the demise of blacks (and southern Republicans), we have now joined together with Grand Dragon Quigg for the “affirmation of Black folks’ contributions to this society, our humanity, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression.”
Mr. Quigg has pledged to only systematically target Trump supporters.
Blacks and the KKK have been oppressed for far to long by our common enemy – the police (a.k.a. pigs).
We have joined together to form new movement called “White Sheets Matter” (WSM).
Donald Trump Tweeted:
@KKK-StandsWithHillary @DemocraticParty I concede. Hillary has beaten me and now is wholly owned by the Ku Klux Klan. She’s a Grand Dragon at getting out the #BurningCross voters.
The battle for the KKK vote has ended. Democrats are donning their hoods and white sheets to get out the vote on November 8th.
