Ku Klux Klan Releases Letter Threatening ‘Lethal Force’ Against Ferguson Protesters
A Missouri chapter of the Ku Klux Klan has been distributing fliers in and around Ferguson, Missouri, in advance of the Michael Brown grand jury decision, warning of “lethal force” against violent protesters, the Huffington Post is reporting.
The fliers come from the Traditionalist American Knights Of The Ku Klux Klan (TAKKKK), based in Park Hills, Missouri, which is about 75 miles south of Ferguson. In them, violent protesters are warned that they have “awakened a sleeping giant.”
As the world awaits the verdict from the grand jury considering whether to indict officer Darren Wilson, who shot unarmed black teenager Michael Brown on August 9, law enforcement is preparing for riots, in case the jury decides not to indict Wilson, according to Time. With these fliers, the Klan is promising that they will not stand for violence.
Frank Ancona, president of the TAKKK, sat down with MSNBC host Chris Hayes to discuss the flyers. Ancona was asked if he saw the irony in threatening violence with more violence.
“No, actually it’s addressing the people who are making these terroristic threats and letting them know that the people of Missouri have rights too. There are remedies under the law. The flier, if you read it, it says ‘defend’, it talks about defense. So, in order to defend yourself, that means you’re being attacked.”
This is not the first time the Klan has made its presence felt in regard to the Michael Brown shooting. About a week after the shooting, the Klan began raising money, according to this Inquisitr report, for officer Darren Wilson’s legal defense fund. As of this post, it is unclear how much money the KKK has raised for Wilson.
Ancona believes that the response to the KKK fliers has been “very good,” according to CBS Saint Louis.
“It kind of came about from hundreds of calls we’ve been getting from residents of St. Louis County concerned with things that they are seeing on social media about random attacks on whites, D.C. sniper-style-type shootings, police officers being threatened that their wives are going to be raped and that they are all targets.”
The grand jury deciding Darren Wilson’s fate is expected to hand down a decision later this month, according to CBS News.

Ku Klux Klan Heading To Ferguson To Escalate Their Long-Awaited Race War
In its most basic definition, war is a conflict carried on by force of arms, as between nations or between parties within a nation such as a civil war. War can also be a struggle to achieve a goal, and for nearly six years, a segment of the population has seriously committed to a achieving a goal they have lusted after for decades; a race war as part of a larger civil war. Likely, no group yearned for a race war more than white supremacists in the Ku Klux Klan, and even before the recent events in Ferguson Missouri, the group began recruiting new members for what they hope is their cherished war against African Americans.
Whether any American wants to admit it or not, the race war, although one-sided and relatively bloodless, has been ongoing since the election of Barack Obama as President. When a Ferguson police officer gunned down unarmed teenager Michael Brown in what was cold-blooded murder, it was a signal to white supremacists to escalate the “struggle” against African Americans into a conflict carried out by force of arms.
In June, according to a Barcroft Media report, the Ku Klux Klan announced they were beginning military combat training under the direction of United State’s military troops loyal to the Ku Klux Klan returning from combat in Afghanistan. The white supremacist group’s goal is to recruit new members and train them in armed combat, hand-to-hand combat, and survival skills to prepare them for the race war. The group is particularly anxious to recruit and train new members “to get our men and women ready the upcoming battle we’re about to take upon us;” the long-awaited race war. The racists look forward to the nation collapsing so Americans “can see the Klan take it back and make this nation the way it needs to be;” a white Aryan nation.
Last week, the Southern Poverty Law Center reported that the New Empire Knights of the Ku Klux Klan announced they had started raising “money for a cop who shot a n*gger criminal.” On Monday, Klan members from three different states traveled to Missouri to hold a two-day fundraiser for the officer who shot unarmed teen Michael Brown on their way to Ferguson to “guard white businesses.” The Klan will hold the two-day “fundraiser” in Sullivan, Missouri, 60 miles from Ferguson, because of the police state in Ferguson and all the money will go “to the cop who did his job against the negro criminal.” The leader of the white supremacists, New Empire Knights Imperial Wizard Charles Murray, said the ‘fundraiser’ was “being attended by 3 different Klan fractions (SIC),” and leveled a warning to “anyone thinking of trying to get in the way; we have guns (and more).”
On the Klan’s website, they claim to be heading to Ferguson fully armed and ready for war because, “blacks are out of control. We can’t have blacks robbing and murdering innocent whites.” The only murder in Ferguson was when white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shot unarmed teenager Michael Brown dead for jaywalking. For all intents and purposes, it was Wilson who fired the first shot in the Klan’s long-awaited race war. The Ferguson police response to peaceful protestors with military war machines escalated the conflict to stop peaceful African Americans from exercising their constitutional rights as American citizens by tear-gassing and shooting them with rubber and wooden bullets in their own neighborhoods.
Republicans and conservatives have incited the Klan and their racist cohort across America to wage war on African Americans with their perpetual propaganda that because President Obama is African American, he is “illegal, not American, not one of us” and most recently waging a “war on white people.” They continued inciting rage among racists throughout the Republican presidential primary by claiming Obama was stealing from white people to give everything to “blaaah people.” It has been a nearly six-year propaganda campaign to incite violence against African Americans that law enforcement has bought into completely as evidenced by a spate of young unarmed Black men being murdered; more than one while lying face down on the ground. The race war is well under way and Republicans, conservative media outlets, and law enforcement is heavily involved. Don’t believe it?
Why was there a military response to peaceful unarmed African American protestors in Ferguson when law enforcement looked on with admiration as heavily-armed white men trained sniper and assault rifles on federal agents executing a federal court order? Why is there no outcry, media reports, or investigations and criminal prosecution against law enforcement for the recent killings of four unarmed young Black men? Because the conservative media has demonized African Americans, as surrogates for President Obama, and as drug-addled criminals worthy of cold-blooded murder at the hands of racists; most notoriously for the crimes of nothing more than walking with skittles or jaywalking.
There has been an ongoing race war, albeit without mass bloodletting yet, in this country for several years. Michael Brown is the latest victim of that war. What defines this as a one-sided war is that although African Americans are well aware they are being targeted by, and victims of, Republican and conservative propaganda and unwarranted murders, they have not retaliated. It is a testament to their peaceful intentions in the face of angry white racists, law enforcement racial profiling, disparate sentencing, murdered unarmed African American youth, and Republicans disenfranchising them by restricting their right to vote.
What is telling is that law enforcement, at both the federal and state, are allowing KKK members free rein to travel across state lines with assault weapons in tow. They also looked the other way when armed out-of-state militias flocked to confront federal agents in the Bundy standoff. It is a federal crime to transport weapons across state lines; particularly when the stated goal is to confront African Americans they claim are “out of control” and “murdering innocent whites;” something that has not happened.
At some point, the federal government is going to have to step in to stop what is shaping up to be a real war in the basic sense of the word; “a conflict carried on by force of arms.” What that entails first is abandoning the fear that calling racism for what it is, bigotry against people of color, may engender accusations of being a racist. When armed hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan announces they are recruiting and training their members for the “upcoming battle we’re about to take upon us, and we’re going to start,” there is no misinterpreting that the white supremacists are escalating their long hoped-for race war; particularly when the Klan has the temerity to warn “anyone thinking of trying to get in the way, we have guns (and more).”
They also have the express support of Republicans and conservative media who have done the heavy lifting of assisting the Klan’s recruitment efforts by demonizing African Americans. African Americans, by the way, who have sat peaceably and waited for their government to step in and end the race war before it escalates into what white supremacists lust; a full scale war to create what Adolf Hitler wanted, an Aryan nation.

Missouri Governor on safety preparations in Ferguson
If you listen to this last video, the one right above, you’d believe the officials of Ferguson, Missouri think only Black Americans protesting against the murder of UNARMED Black teenager, Michael Brown, are the ONLY threat to Ferguson, Missouri residents and businesses. It would never occur to one listening or watching this video by Missouri Governor Jay Nixon, that the Black Americans out in full force exercising their 2nd amendment rights are doing so in a peaceful manner while facing armed militarized police forces.
The KKK are allowed to distribute hate material in Ferguson, Missouri. A organized “Open Carry March” was allowed to take place in Missouri cities and towns. ALL with the approval and under the watchful protection of various Missouri law enforcement agencies.
There were no armored vehicles or military assault style weapons present against the KKK or the open carry morons by Missouri law enforcement, except the military assault style weapons carried by these protesters. They were given free reign to do as they pleased. NOT ONE shotgun was aimed at these caucasians protesters.
Like when Black Americans protested the murder of UNARMED Black American teenager Michael Brown.
The Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan started distributing a flier in the St. Louis area promising to use lethal force against any protesters in Ferguson they deem to be violent. Frank Ancona, the imperial wizard of the chapter, spoke with theRiverfront Times regarding the flier and the intentions of the KKK in Ferguson as large-scale protests loom with the approaching grand jury announcement in the Darren Wilson case. Ancona not only claimed that the protesters are “terrorists,” but he also said recruitment for the chapter has soared in the wake of the protests that began in August after unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by Wilson. Ancona said the following to the RFT regarding the group’s membership ranks:
“These Ferguson protesters are the best recruiters since Obama. Normally we might hear from ten people a week in Missouri, and now we’re hearing from more like fifty people a week. Sometimes, depending on these news stories, we get 100, 200 calls in a day.”
Despite the KKK’s recent attempts to soften its ‘burning crosses, bombing churches’ image, its call to violence against Ferguson protesters exposes the same old racist Klan mentality.
They mean stand with the caucasian people of Ferguson.
A Missouri-based affiliate of the Ku Klux Klan is circulating a clumsily designed flier vowing to “use lethal force as provided under Missouri Law to defend ourselves” from “terrorists masquerading as ‘peaceful protestors,’” reports Vice News.
If you are blind to yet another double standard being issued forth by racist Missouri officials…..I suggest you wake the fuck up. Before it’s way too late.
While this powder-keg is simmering, ready to blow, our President Of The United States Of America, Barack Hussein Obama, is silent on the over 100 Black Males killed since he took his oath of office in 2009. He would rather talk about Syria, Iraq, Immigration and other issues than address his administration’s idea to ignore this Black genocide. Makes you wonder if Barack is Black at all.
