Who put the Klan in the Ku Klux Klan 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴🤔😬

Who Put The Klan in the Klu Klux Klan?🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🤔😬

This is on Amazon. It starts with Dylan Root, with his crimes premised as an outgrowth of the past. The show's thesis is the roots of the KKK rest with Scottish immigrants and culture. The film addresses the post Civil War organization, and then the rebirth of the KKK in the 1920s (via the Clansman and Birth of a Nation).  

Interesting the narrator Neil Oliver thinks racism is an American phenomenon. It was pretty close to slavery in Ireland when Cromwell went there and brought a lot of Scottish immigrants with him (who became the Scot-Irish who then immigrated to the American colonies). There was also plenty of slavery (or its close kin of feudal servitude) throughout the world (and plenty of racism and exploitation now all over the planet). America hardly had an exclusive on it. 

Of course, Oliver goes to the $outhern Poverty Law Center to talk about H8 groups. What a scam that is, shaking down businesses and organizations for false virtue, not unlike the Klan did back in the day. It is interesting how the League of the South and $PLC arguably have their own symbiotic relationship.

  1. The Scots were originally from Ireland and there had been many left when a mass of Scots left for what is now Scotland. They conquered and absorbed the Picts and made the land their own.

    The Klan began as a joke. Thus the reason for the strange names of the officers. When the radical Republicans imposed "reconstruction" several resistance organizations stood up. Wade Hampton's Red Shirts was one of those, and people that discovered the potential of the Klan as a resistance organization converted to such. When the yankee army was withdrawn from the south, the Klan faded away as there was no need for it anymore. The Democrats stood it back up around 1915 as the organization we know and love so well. The Klan dominated the Democrat party for nearly 40 years. It fell apart as a result of infighting in the 50s.

    1. Yes, the Klan of the 20th Century was essentially the Democrat Party.
