KKK endorses Obama

My aunt in Florida sent me this headline and I had to share it because it is so absurd. White Christian Supremacist group the Ku Klux Klan has endorsed Barack Obama to be the next President of the United States of America. I wonder if Barack will accept the endorsement and/or the money?

Speaking from his Kentucky office in Dawson Springs, the Imperial Wizard exclaimed that anything or anyone is better than having that "crazy ass bitch" as President. This is the first time in Klan history that any member of the KKK has ever publicly supported an African American candidate for the presidency. KKK lodges all over America have been gathering and holding rallies supporting the black presidential candidate.

Grand Turk Cletus Monroe has also been very vocal about the election and has donated thousands of dollars to Obama's election fund. "The boy's gonna do it. My Klan group has donated up to $250,000 to the Obama fund. Anything is better than Hillary Clinton. Hell I'll even adopt a black kid from Africa before I vote for Hillary."

"A few years back we were lynching negroes. Now we're gonna vote for one to be president of the US of motherfu**ing A, damn it! Anyone or anything is better than Hillary Clinton - anything!!" Placards for Barack Obama have been put up around the Klan's Headquarters and the KKK have announced a television ad campaign to support the African American candidate.

This is actually one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard in my life.

Everytime I think that I have heard it all, along comes a story like this. The fact that the KKK is endorsing Obama shows the deep hatred they have for Hillary. I don't see how Obama could accept the endorsement or the money... but then, stranger things have happened.

Barack Obama cannot afford that type of press at this point. This campaign is ugly enough without putting the "Klan" in the mix. Poor Hillary. What was once thought to be impossible has become quite possible indeed.

This almost sounds like a WWN headline. Why wouldn't the Klan support the Republican or Conservative party nominee?

If this was a real demonstration, I think that the point would be to damage Obama's reputation by associating him with their own tarnished image. As you say, Barak cannot afford that kind of press at this point.

x. dell, you know you could be right. This might actually be a ploy to damage rather than endorse. Point taken.

Interesting. Folks keep forwarding me this same email and I keep pressing delete. It simply reeks too much of "urban rumor" to me.
