Residents of Fairview Township in central Pennsylvania woke up Friday morning to receive the above not-at-all ominous looking whatsoever Ku Klux Klan flyers, in response to a string of break-ins which have been plaguing the area. How proactive of them! Right CNN? Don’t worry though, because they totally promise that this isn’t just another a flimsy excuse to target minorities. Pinky swears! PennLive reports:
Leadership of a local Traditional American Knights chapter contacted the organization’s headquarters in Park Hills, Mo., to find out whether the national organization would sponsor the crime watch, and Ancona said he gave the midstate “klavern” his blessing.
“It’s just like any neighborhood watch program. It’s not targeting any specific ethnicity. We would report anything we see to law enforcement,” Ancona said. “We don’t hate people. We are an organization who looks out for our race. We believe in racial separation. God created each species after its kind and saw that it was good.”
If the “klavern” plans to report anything strange they see to police, then I’m not sure why the flyer with the terrifying illustration of a KKK man pointing at me instructs residents to call the “klanline” instead of, say, “the police,” but something tells me it has something to do with the fact that the Fairview Township sheriff’s office doesn’t come equipped with burning crosses.
It’s like the old saying goes. Pennsylvania: “Pittsburgh in the west, Philadelphia in the east, and Alabama in between.”
