Thread Name: BS: Some Sweet Justice Against the KKK
Subject: RE: BS: Some Sweet Justice Against the KKK
My point, Greg, was that the Ku Klux Klan has never relied on race-hate alone for its existence, but has been an opportunistic organization from the onset. My point is also that those who are, indeed, students of American History in general, and the history of the Reconstruction years in particular, will be aware that injustices perpetrated in the Army-occupied South of that period provided fertile ground for the development of groups such as the Klan.

It is also a fairly primitive and obvious tactic to attribute ignorance to those with whom you disagree.
