It is being reported that the Ku Klux Klan has been spreading anti-transgender propaganda in multiple states across the U.S. Fliers paced in clear plastic bags filled with sand are being found in the yards and driveways of residents in Alabama, Kentucky and Georgia.
The hate group, known as The Loyal White Knights of the KKK, seems to be upset over recent transgender bathroom laws and guidance issued from the U.S. Government. The fliers call transgender people an “abomination according to the King James Bible.” It also calls transgender people “freaks” while advising them to “use a tree out in the back yard.” The group is using the fliers as a way to recruit new members.
Watch the report from Fox 5 Atlanta:
“We don’t hate anybody, we don’t want to see Alabama go the way with Transgender bathrooms,”
Last month, the group spread their flyers in Mobile, Alabama. Locals in the community responded by laughing at them, as they seem to have targeted a demographic that would not be open to their cause. Television station WKRG was able to speak with Robert Shelton, who calls himself the Grand Dragon of the KKK in Alabama. According to Shelton, his group spread about 1,500 flyers in May. “We don’t hate anybody, we don’t want to see Alabama go the way with Transgender bathrooms,” stated Shelton. No hate? Did he read his flier?
