Last week, the New York Times was promoting an upcoming “documentary” TV series about today’s Ku Klux Klan, without, of course, getting into any of those messy questions about whether today’s KKK really exists or not, except as a popular bogey man and more or less wholly owned subsidiary of the FBI and SPLC staffed by hired infiltrators:

Inside the Ku Klux Klan, With an A&E Documentary Series

By KATHRYN SHATTUCK DEC. 18, 2016

But this week from the New York Times:

A&E Shelves a K.K.K. Documentary Series Over Cash Payments
By ELI ROSENBERG DEC. 24, 2016

A documentary series that was set to take viewers inside the Ku Klux Klan has been canceled by A&E after the network discovered that some of the show’s producers had made cash payments to participants on the show. …

In a statement on Saturday, A&E said the decision not to air the show was based on a revelation that third-party producers had given money to some of the participants in order to facilitate access.

Yet, that seems like it would have been the most authentic imaginable version of today’s KKK: hired performers engaging in Ku Klux Klan Live Action Role Playing: KKKLARPing.

  1. The greatest fashion change since 1968 is taking place.
    We are past peak negro.
    We need to give the rubes what they want.
    How about a KKK reality TV show as a replacement for the Kardashians?

  2. This should be a government program.

    Pay white people to play KKK.

    It’d be like Santas during X-mas season.

    This already exists. It's called the FBI

  3. They probably cancelled the series after half the cast went on their Birthright trip.

  4. So amongst those who count such things, the Pew Poverty Center estimated Klan membership to be around 3,000. Highest estimates are around 7,000. This is a viable social threat in a country of 325 MILLION?

    The population of two high schools is a threat to America?

    As nobody should understand better than the Democrats, the way to inject social acceptance into an organization that despises blacks is to get those black folks to join the party, then you can exploit blacks while speaking on their behalf! Toss ’em some crumbs, let ’em fornicate to their hearts content without criticism, and scores of blacks who miss the good old days, will joyously participate, while you play the beloved “Big Daddy” on the modern plantation.

    Only if the Klan copies the Democrat’s strategy, they would indeed be an effective counter-measure to the majority of blacks who aspire to better their lot.

    Until then, the Ku Klux Klan is simply a brand which provides no service. They are not a serious competition to the Democrats, and beating this dead horse is a sad waste of the Democrats dwindling resources. They should focus on expanding welfare benefits, easy housing ownership strategies, free phones, building prisons, sanctuary cities, and leave what’s left of the Klan alone.

    Demand exceeds supply because there's no market, with its price mechanism, to bring about an equilibrium. But journalists (like the ones behind this aborted documentary) paying their sources is a step toward creating that market.

    The supply's still plenty high, it's just been deflected onto lower class whites.
    , @Bill
    It's not so much that the supply is intrinsically low. It's that the taxes on "bigotry" are so high that supply is kind of crushed out.

    Both Hitler and Mussolini started off on somebody's the payroll.

    Mussolini was on the British payroll and if you search on images for Mussolini, early on while he was on the British payroll, he dressed like a proper chap as they might say including a bowler hat, high starched collar, and spats. Only later did he invent his Il Duce character. That Mussolini was on the take is actually very recent news. It is not clear to me why it was made public after all these years.

    I never saw an accounting of who exactly was paying Hitler, and when they might have stopped. That Hitler was an informant and then paid to start a political party is actually old news. I predict nobody takes credit for starting AH in his career.

    True. Hamilton Jordan, one of Jimmy Carter's staff, pointed out that it was the 'White Citizens Councils' that were the real source of opposition to integration as the KKK had long since become declasse for anyone of any position or influence in the South. Without influential people the "Invisible Empire' lost whatever clout it once had because its clout came from officials acting unofficially on behalf of the Klan. A police chief or judge could,e.g., bend the law on behalf of the KKK but without members with that kind of official power it became impotent beyond some yahoo declaring himself to be "Klansman".

  28. The Klan being a threat is one of those FBI-invented tales from the 1950s when they were willfully turning a blind eye to organized crime and most of the Commie infiltration and instead were the tools of the Left to break up groups organized against Communism, and the last of the Klan was a symbolic stalwart.

    Is there anything those Keystone Kops, er, “G-Men”, won’t do to harm America?

  29. I have to wonder if the Klan was ever a “thing,” even during its heyday back when “Birth of a Nation” was released. Family lore has it that a few of my ancestors were in the Klan waaaaaay back when — roughly late 19th century to early 20th century or thereabouts — and from the stories I’ve heard, the Klan were viewed as disreputable rabble-rousers even back then. Mind you, this was a time when the relevant authorities — local, state and national — were probably in basic agreement with the Klan on nearly every issue. And even then, the Klan was always running afoul of the law.

    The fact is, established authorities always tend to hate unruly groups that go around stirring up shit, even when they’re on the same side — maybe particularly when they’re on the same side.

    There have been 3 separate movement in the US called the KKK. The most successful of these existed in the teen and 1920's, peaking at several million members. At one point 20% of the population of Indiana were Klan members. This Klan was more of a fraternal organization (like the Elks Lodge) with a racist, anti-Catholic twist than a violent underground organization.

    After becoming aware of what Reconstruction did to the South, it leaves me wondering why the South did not erupt in full-blown guerrilla warfare against carpetbaggers and Union troops. Such restraint on their part! It strains understanding.

    Post-Civil War Reconstruction must have been somewhat like living under the Obama administration in the United States, albeit the goal of the latter was to broaden the scope of the reeducation effort to include the entire population of the United States rather than a smaller regional subset. Such restraint on our part! It strains understanding.

    As for the KKK, it was a fuse that fizzled out soon after it was lit. The historical memory of the KKK is kept alive by the SPLC and FBI in an attempt to cast aspersions on those who are currently resisting reeducation similar to the Southerners in the post Civil War period -- guilt by (FBI-manufactured) association. The problem is that apparently the only way the FBI and Hollywood can convince white males to dance around in bedsheets is to hire performers and agent provocateurs to keep the illusions and aspersions alive.

    Speaking of, I just peeked at the Wikipedia entries for AIPAC and J Street. AIPAC’s 2014 revenue was more than 30 times J Street’s. AIPAC’s entry explains that while the organization claims to be bipartisan, it is the overwhelming choice for conservative Jews, while J Street is for Liberal Jews who are uncomfortable with the Reich’s extreme right-wing leadership.

    I’m still having trouble reconciling all of that with the fact that 71% of Jews voted for Hillary – a typical result – and something like two thirds of the money that goes into Democrats’ presidential election coffers comes from Jews. And the fact that Jews’ have as strong a reputation for leftism as anyone.

    Can someone explain all of that to me?

  51. OT but interesting:

    On Friday Dec. 23, the Wall Street Journal reported sharply rising murder rates (2015 compared to 2016) in certain urban & suburban areas, Chicago, etc., not really a surprise.

    But among the areas is Suffolk County, Long Island. Based on the Journal’s bar chart, the increase may be as much as 40%. Suffolk County has been run by the Dems since 2004.

    Guess what? Today, Christmas day (talk about a news dump), the Long Island paper Newsday reports that the Suffolk County Sheriff, who runs the County Jail, will no longer require a court order to cooperate with the Feds regarding illegal immigrants in his custody.
    In other words, no more Sanctuary County.

    This is not a coincidence. However, it probably is due at least as much to Trump’s popular vote victory in Suffolk as it does to the awful numbers just reported.
    The Dems may be starting to figure out that allowing Mexican and Salvadoran gangbangers to operate with impunity in Suffolk will have consequences, and not just in the voting booth.

  52. The gangs (“antifa” as blanket terminology, like “the Klan”?) who wreaked so much havoc at Trump rallies in Chicago, San Jose and elsewhere have already been tossed down the memory hole. BLM is still viewed as benign despite all the dead cops.

    "Yet, that seems like it would have been the most authentic imaginable version of today’s KKK: hired performers engaging in Ku Klux Klan Live Action Role Playing"

    Kinda like the short-lived "Amish Mafia" TV series that ran on our local cable channel. For a short while.

    Did the producer suffer a mysterious buggy accident?

    This already exists. It’s called the FBI

  59. I watched a program about hate groups in America that the History Channel aired right after Dylan Roof did his thing. It was clearly made to put an irrational fear in people about an almost non existing threat.
    The show focused mainly on Nazi skin heads and the KKK because that’s what we’re all afraid of , right. It was basically consisting of a bunch of unrelated clips being shown while the narrator attempts to link real crimes against blacks or Jews that have happened to these groups. In many cases there is no evidence of it.
    Throughout the program there are short video clips that are supposed to correlate to what the narrator is saying. For instance the narrator makes the claim that hate groups seem to be gaining ground among poor, uneducated, rural types then there will be a corresponding clip of a KKK protest with an unrelated clip of people standing around watching a parade. An old man is wearing overalls and wearing John Deere hat so we know that they are poor rural people, and they’re all white says the rest. At one point the narrator says that the number of states with hate groups has been on a steady rise for the past decade to prove it they show a map of the US with the states with hate groups in them colored red (you know, the evil color.) As the timeline goes steadily toward the present more states turn red. Then as he predicts the future the whole map turns red, horrifying.
    Towards the end they start flashing subliminal messages like, clips from the civil rights era of cops beating black people with clubs, picture of guns, confederate flags, and when I replayed a recording of it they even had a picture of old glory hanging on the front of a house. White people, flags, weapons, its enough to give you nightmares.

    What were they going to call it? The Emmanuel Goldstein show?

    So amongst those who count such things, the Pew Poverty Center estimated Klan membership to be around 3,000. Highest estimates are around 7,000. This is a viable social threat in a country of 325 MILLION?
     
    Speaking of, I just peeked at the Wikipedia entries for AIPAC and J Street. AIPAC's 2014 revenue was more than 30 times J Street's. AIPAC's entry explains that while the organization claims to be bipartisan, it is the overwhelming choice for conservative Jews, while J Street is for Liberal Jews who are uncomfortable with the Reich's extreme right-wing leadership.

    I'm still having trouble reconciling all of that with the fact that 71% of Jews voted for Hillary - a typical result - and something like two thirds of the money that goes into Democrats' presidential election coffers comes from Jews. And the fact that Jews' have as strong a reputation for leftism as anyone.

    Can someone explain all of that to me?

    Merry Christmas, everyone.

    P.S., the Klan may have fallen on hard times, and be the height of uncool for now, but watch out; with all those grand wizards, unicorns, sphinxes, chimeras, gorgons, and other Monster Manual entries on the books; and with all this talk of LARPing; they're one rehab away from being taken over by RPG nerds, and made into a Ren-Fair force to be feared.

    Short version:

    AIPAC is the American Jewish pro-Israel lobby and J Street is the American Jewish anti-Israel lobby.

    It’s really more complicated than that, but that’s a good starting point before digging deeper.

    J Street isn't led by Arabs proposing that Jews should accept being a permanent minority in a reconstructed Mandatory Palestine "one-state".

    They can only be called "anti-Israel" in the sense that Israel is the product of the Labour Party, which has been out of power for more than a decade.
  61. It’s hard to believe they’re still flogging that KKK dead horse.

  62. They should have just had an edgy extended-package cable show on AMC or something, “Sons of AnarKKKy” or “BreaKKKing Bad.” Call it a documentary if you want, using that Fargo “fake real” framing device. Who would know the difference or care?

    "Unethical payments" strikes me as a pretext for cancelling a program that would have been somewhat absurd. Consider the groups that actually threaten or worry the typical A&E viewer: The KKK would not be on that list.

    We need to import more white Hispanics, that previously unsung demographic discovered by the fakestream media a few years back because Narrative, to bolster American Klan membership. Hell, since Klansmen wear hoods, 5'2" mestizo Aztecs can play the part.

    Howard Stern has had a large number of funny segments with Klansman Daniel Carver.

    Wake Up, White People! I think Daniel Carver the KKK Guy croaked awhile back. He fell off a roof or something, car accident. Not sure he’s with us anymore.

    I'm sure the Klan was a "thing" back in Reconstruction since one of the first duties of the new 7th Cavalry was to defeat the KKK as a militia force. Custer crushed the KKK as a militia and forced them underground as the cross-burning bed-linen-clad bogeyman of the SPLC imagination.

    After becoming aware of what Reconstruction did to the South, it leaves me wondering why the South did not erupt in full-blown guerrilla warfare against carpetbaggers and Union troops. Such restraint on their part! It strains understanding.

    Post-Civil War Reconstruction must have been somewhat like living under the Obama administration in the United States, albeit the goal of the latter was to broaden the scope of the reeducation effort to include the entire population of the United States rather than a smaller regional subset. Such restraint on our part! It strains understanding.

    As for the KKK, it was a fuse that fizzled out soon after it was lit. The historical memory of the KKK is kept alive by the SPLC and FBI in an attempt to cast aspersions on those who are currently resisting reeducation similar to the Southerners in the post Civil War period — guilt by (FBI-manufactured) association. The problem is that apparently the only way the FBI and Hollywood can convince white males to dance around in bedsheets is to hire performers and agent provocateurs to keep the illusions and aspersions alive.

  72. Germanic paganism, Wodan, and Christianization


    Germanic paganism, Wodan, and Christianization

    An 1886 depiction of the long-bearded Norse god Odin by Georg von Rosen

    Prior to Christianization, the Germanic peoples (including the English) celebrated a midwinter event called Yule (Old English geola or giuli).[20] With the Christianization of Germanic Europe, numerous traditions were absorbed from Yuletide celebrations into modern Christmas.[21] During this period, supernatural and ghostly occurrences were said to increase in frequency, such as the Wild Hunt, a ghostly procession through the sky.[citation needed] The leader of the wild hunt is frequently attested as the god Wodan (Norse Odin), bearing (among many names) the names Jólnir, meaning “Yule figure”, and Langbarðr, meaning “long-beard”, in Old Norse.[22]

    Wodan’s role during the Yuletide period has been theorized as having influenced concepts of St. Nicholas in a variety of facets, including his long white beard and his gray horse for nightly rides (compare Odin’s horse Sleipnir) or his reindeer in North American tradition.[23] Folklorist Margaret Baker maintains that “the appearance of Santa Claus or Father Christmas, whose day is 25th of December, owes much to Odin, the old blue-hooded, cloaked, white-bearded Giftbringer of the north, who rode the midwinter sky on his eight-footed steed Sleipnir, visiting his people with gifts. […] Odin, transformed into Father Christmas, then Santa Claus, prospered with St Nicholas and the Christchild, became a leading player on the Christmas stage.”[24]

    In Finland they still use Joulupukki or the Christmas Goat….

    Both Hitler and Mussolini started off on somebody’s the payroll.

    Mussolini was on the British payroll and if you search on images for Mussolini, early on while he was on the British payroll, he dressed like a proper chap as they might say including a bowler hat, high starched collar, and spats. Only later did he invent his Il Duce character. That Mussolini was on the take is actually very recent news. It is not clear to me why it was made public after all these years.

    I never saw an accounting of who exactly was paying Hitler, and when they might have stopped. That Hitler was an informant and then paid to start a political party is actually old news. I predict nobody takes credit for starting AH in his career.

    The problem [for the left] is that the demand for bigotry is far higher than supply.

    Therefore, supply must be fabricated. This explains the rash of hate hoaxes, Rolling Stone fake rape article, etc.

    It’s not so much that the supply is intrinsically low. It’s that the taxes on “bigotry” are so high that supply is kind of crushed out.

  78. I got to admit that when Fox news had Judith Miller on about the fake news story that caused the Pakistani defense minister to threaten Israel I could not stop laughing. Here was the person probably most responsible for lying us into the Iraq war crying about the damage done by fake news since it involved somebody threatening Israel.

  79. I don’t have any personal experience with the KKK but I know something about Nazis. I spent my last year in high school at Washington Lee High in Arlington Virginia. As it happened George Lincoln Rockwell had his national American Nazi party headquarters two blocks from the school. One consequence of this was that no student ever lacked for a term paper subject. Everyone, it seemed, wrote a paper on Nazis.

    I visited them – usually when I had been drinking – several times. My estimate of their membership was about ten. They seemed to get about twenty people to show up for their rallies on the Mall but for their day to day activities they seldom had more than five. They were a wormy lot.

    I went by on Hitler’s Birthday, as it happened. It was a big affaire for the Nazis. There were about ten people (Nazis) there. The press was also there. In those days there was a continuous stream of newspaper articles about the Nazis in our midst. If you only read the papers you might have thought that there was something to it – you might have worried about Nazis in America.

  80. It’s kind of surprising the MSM in the US rarely mentions libertarian extremism. After all, a libertarian extremist, Timoth McVeigh, was responsible for the second biggest terrorist attack in US history.

    White nationalists account for less than 10 percent of extremist violence in the US, but the MSM paints them as either number one or number two in terms of terror threats. Libertarian extremism (like old-school anarchism) is also a direct threat to the government itself, whereas white nationalism is only a danger to minorities.

    From a federal government perspective, white nationalism is a distant fifth level threat, after radical Islam, the black far-left, libertarian/survivalist extremists, and odd-ball religious cults.
