This Is What Ted Nugent And The KKK Have In Common

Several residents of Chesterfield County, Virginia have recently received fliers proclaiming members of the Ku Klux Klan are not "enemies of the colored and mongrel races," according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

The fliers echo recent comments from rocker Ted Nugent calling President Barack Obama a "subhuman mongrel." Nugent was chastised by many public figures for the comments, including Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R), who said he had a problem with the comments but did not think the comments were racist.

Frank Ancona, president and imperial wizard of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, said it's a "falsehood" that the KKK are targeting people for race.

“The thing that really gets me is that [people are] saying we’re teaching our children to hate people just because of their race, creed and color, and that’s a complete lie and falsehood,” Ancona told the Times-Dispatch.

The Times-Dispatch has more on the Virginia fliers:

One of the fliers in Virginia, however, claimed that “many people have experienced the blacks firsthand” and have seen the “savagery and animalism in many of these people.” The fliers went on to say that the KKK’s mission is “exalting the Caucasian race and teaching the doctrine of white supremacy. That does not mean that we are enemies of the colored and mongrel race, but it does mean that we are organized to establish the solidarity and to realize the mission of the white race.”

Other towns around the country have seen the distribution of KKK fliers, including several in the Chicago area. Those included such messages as "Always remember, if it ain't white, it ain't right," and “You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake!”
