"Our clear goal must be the advancement of the white race and separation of the white and black races. This goal must include freeing of the American media and government from subservient Jewish interests."
-"Klan Code of Conduct," Duke Speaks Out, a column in the Crusader (newspaper of the Knights of the KKK, then led by David Duke), 1978
The Ku Klux Klan has used intimidation against numerous ethnic and religious groups over the course of 150 years. Klansmen consider it their responsibility to show "True Americanism," although the U.S. Government considers their actions to be threatening terrorist acts. The American Leadership of the Klan has helped them spread the same message of white supremacy throughout the course of their three eras. From Grand Wizard's Nathan Bedford Forrest to D.C. Stephenson to leaders of the Klan today, their legacy of negative leadership has been anything but "True Americanism."
