There are certain truths you need to know, because much has been suppressed and misunderstood. This is how error and deception have reigned since the last Confederate veteran passed away in 1959 and part of the reason we find ourselves in the shape we’re in right now. If you can’t read this now come back to it, but by all means read it.
We have been hesitant to post on this subject simply because of the massive, overwhelming ignorance about it. And whenever the subject comes up, emotions take over and critical thinking dies. But there is much you need to know and you may as well be in possession of the truth right now. It’s critical to the South for the truth to be published.
Three different and distinct groups calling themselves the KuKluxKlan have formed in the country since 1865. This is one reason there’s so much confusion on the subject. So here are some facts for you.
The ONLY group entitled to the name KuKlux was formed shortly after Lincoln’s war in 1865 in Pulaski, TN. GENERAL NB FORREST WAS NOWHERE NEAR WHEN IT FORMED. This secret club was formed by six former Confederate soldiers for the express purpose of running a sheriff out of town while TN was under martial law. Remember there was no redress for wrongs suffered by Confederates during Reconstruction.
This evil sheriff was a lackey for TN Governor ‘Parson’ Brownlow, who LOATHED Confederates, and made their lives a living hell during this time. The group dressed up in white sheets and hoods to represent their fallen comrades but mostly to disguise themselves because they had NO rights of any kind. Had they been seen and identified meeting they could have been hung. Confederates were thrown into jail for accidentally bumping into invading outsiders on the street. There was no justice. Something HAD to be done for the widows and orphans of Confederate soldiers, not to mention the lame soldiers themselves.
The name “KuKlux” is a Greek name which means ‘social club’ and the term ‘Klan’ was added some time later. These men were successful in running the sheriff out of town and so the concept spread as a way for some former Confederates to have some justice in a hellish situation.
About the end of 1869 a semblance of normalcy was restored and the KuKlux were no longer needed. General Forrest asked for the group to disband. Governor Brownlow had resigned and Governor Dewitt Senter replaced him and was instrumental in restoring the voting rights to Confederates along with law and order. You also must understand another reason for them disbanding is because things were done in their name that the Group did not do.
UNDERSTAND subsequent groups calling themselves KuKlux are IMPOSTERS.
A second group was formed about 1915 for economic reasons. This group marched with the US flag, NOT THE CONFEDEDERATE BATTLE FLAG, and it was specifically formed to scare away foreign immigrants and Blacks so Whites would have no job competition. Remember the time was near the Great Depression era and jobs were few and far between. This group advocated violence with things like wild cat strikes, but went away as the economy recovered some about 1933.
The third group is the one we see today and was formed in the 1950’s. It NEVER HAD AND DOES NOT NOW HAVE ANYTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO WITH CONFEDERATES OR THE CONFEDERACY. This group is a white supremacist group and they don’t hide that fact. What they do is attempt to steal Confederate credibility and ride on the coat tails of the valor and bravery of the Confederate soldier. They placed their hateful hands on the honorable banner of the Confederate soldier, but they did not do it until the last Confederate soldier was gone and could have called them out for the IMPOSTERS they were/are. The SCV has issued several official statements over the years disassociating themselves with the freaks in sheets. These clowns are NOT Confederates, never were Confederates and will never BE Confederates, although a few of them MAY have a distant Confederate ancestor.
Now before it comes up, yes indeed some ‘Southerners’ jumped on the hate bandwagon during the Civil Rights movement, BUT that does not make them CONFEDERATE. It makes them born in the South. Since Lincoln’s illegal invasion, carpetbaggers came and had children here. They have the same hatred their fathers had.
It is time for the flesh and blood descendants of Confederate heroes to stand up to these purloining impostors and take back the flag, the honor and the reputation of our fathers. What are you waiting for? You know the truth now. What will you do with it?

Photo 2 – As you can see the hanged men were WHITE NORTHERN CARPETBAGGERS AND SCALLYWAGS. They were NOT black.
Photo – 3 – Notice again that the man being confronted by the Klan is WHITE.
Another carpetbagger or perhaps a drunkad not providing for his family.

Most of this group are NORTHERNERS protesting immigration as they wanted no job competition.
This needs to be understood.
These people had NO RIGHT to the name of the KKK and they dared NOT touch the banner of Confederate soldiers or they would have been SEVERELY dealt with!
One other thing to note. For the most part, the ORIGINAL KKK DID NOT cover their faces as you can see in photogaph 3.
