In a video that would be funny if it didn't revolve around violent bigots, representatives of the Ku Klux Klan confirmed the organization's call to shoot border-crossing immigrants from Central America to advance its goal of a "white homeland" in the United States.
In the remarkable new video from Al Jazeera America, reporter Robert Ray rendezvoused with two Klansmen in a compact Chevy and followed them from a North Carolina town to a rural wood, where they articulated the Klan's murderous objectives.
The Klansmen purport to represent the "Loyal White Knights" of North Carolina, described by Ray as "the largest active KKK operation in America"—although the talkative guy in the silly white hood—identified by Al-Jazeera as "Robert Jones," a grand dragon—has a shoulder flash identifying him as a Virginia-based Klansman, along with thong sandals and a gut that protrudes through his cassock and over a purple rope-belt.
"These people are criminals to begin with when they cross our country," the white knight says of the mostly-underage immigrants currently collecting at the U.S.-Mexico border:
"They're gonna continue to break the law when they're here. they're bringing with 'em the third-world diseases...
If we can't turn them back, I think if we pop a couple of 'em off and leave the corpses laying on the border, maybe they'll see that we're serious about stopping immigration."
The objective of these bubbas, as always, is "A white homeland," Jones says. "I believe we will have it here eventually one day," he adds, thong sandals and all.
