Flashback Friday

Today's edition of Flashback Friday presents a very brave soul.  Unidentified but very brave.  Hope someone got him a bottle of illegal hooch from the Gold Coast.  He more than earned it. 

Kingfish Note: Keep it civil in the comments.

Perhaps the 20th century Klan wasn't everything that Hollywood and the Cohen Brothers (Oh Brother) has made them out to be?

Maybe we will learn from the Weinstein, Epstein, and NXIVM cases that there are far more heinous happenings by politically connected elites?

Sometimes it really is as of the leftist media projects so hard to distract from their own sick criminality.

Photographer Cliff Bingham was brave....can't imagine him being at all comfortable at a klan rally.

Notice how the article said that "the KKK is back..." as if people had stopped participating long before that event. Why?

This was a bunch of Hoover's SpecialAgents playacting with some gullible locals. Nobody was going to get hurt. In the 1950s the KKK was nothing more than an FBI honeypot just like it is today.

The FBI has always had to justify its existence. Hoover was not popular in Washington. With few communists to chase in Mississippi, infiltrating a violent fraternal organization was the perfect operation. Hoover wanted Agents working in every state.

If the operation didn't produce criminals to prosecute, it was defunded and disbanded. It would be interesting if you could find many more articles about this group.

My pawpaw and uncle (his brother) tell a story of going to one of these back in the 50s and their story goes that nearly all of the hooded klansmen talked like yankees. It was like they got out of towners came in to town put on a show once and then left.

I love how this klan group had to affirmatively state it’s unique identity from other klan groups.

And I like how the grand dragon was also a baptist preacher all over Al Ga and Ms.

Some things never change it seems

In the 1960s Tupelo's Klan called itself the Knights of the Green Forrest and they had several rallies at a farm house at Skyline a few miles east of the Tupelo city limits. Dale Walton was the Grand Dragon and he had political connections in Jackson. I went to 2 of the rallies and there were people there that were suspected of being from the FBI or some other federal agency but it seemed very unlikely that the situation was a phony FBI setup.

I think Eisenhower was very impressed by Hitler’s Autobahn in Germany. The German army could mobilize vast equipment rapidly. When Eisenhower became president, construction on I-55 began. I think several other limited access highways also. From this article, the government already had plans or ideas during President Truman’s administration.

The Klan was simply the prevalent social club of middle class and poor whites of the day and the enforcement wing of the all powerful Democratic party. The successors of the club and the party are all Republicans today. Good ole boys.

KKK - the enforcement arm of the Democrat Party. (The truth hurts because it should).

It is telling that the DNC/libs rarely bring up the KKK, especially considering that Democrat members of Congress were also members of the KKK. (But that was a different time, right? Right?)

Rod Knox said...

How many adults in this state are stupid enough to fall for 2:39's KKK/Democrat line? Of course 2:39 was gullible enough to fall for the line when Faux News and Hannity called it news.

Dixiecrats and Freedom Democrats parted company with the Republican party proudly lifting the Stars-N-Bars when Ronald Reagan announced his candidacy in Philadelphia

But Mississippi remains at the bottom as the majority of those who vote are either too dumb or too indoctrinated to recognize they are being played for suckers just as many Democrats are.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time.
