KKK Leaves Bags Of Candy On Neighborhood Doorsteps

 
Posted July 17th, 2014 @ 10:44am

Residents in a South Carolina neighborhood weren't happy to find bags of candy outside their homes over the weekend—mainly because the Ku Klux Klan left them there. The candy sacks discovered Saturday night and Sunday morning in an Oconee County subdivision each included a piece of paper that said "Save Our Land, Join the Klan" and included a phone number that led to an automated message about the group's efforts against illegal immigration. Robert Jones, imperial klaliff of the Loyal White Knights, says that the overnight drops were part of a nationwide recruitment event that's held three times a year and that the hotline has received 20,000 calls daily. Though one resident who received the candy said, "You shouldn't have to wake up and fear that somebody might burn a cross in your yard," Jones says no one need worry ... unless they're doing something the KKK considers to be "morally wrong."
