Murray Resident

Murray residents have found Ku Klux Klan recruitment fliers on their lawns again. This time they use the current transgender bathroom controversy to recruit new members. The flyers reference the King James Bible and suggest transgender people “use a tree out in the back yard” to go to the bathroom. 

A recruiting effort by the Ku Klux Klan is prompting concern among some Murray residents. Murray Police say an unknown person or group of people left flyers on driveways Saturday night.

Just when you think the Ku Klux Klan – with its sordid history of racism and violence – is a thing of the past, it rears its ugly, white-sheet-hooded head.

In the aftermath of the tragic killings at Jewish Community Centers in Kansas City on April 13 – and reports that the accused gunman belonged to a KKK group in North Carolina – you wanted to see if there is other news about the KKK in contemporary America.

The Ku Klux Klan and the American Civil Liberties Union are suing the City of Cape Girardeau for infringing their First Amendment rights to free speech.  KKK members plan to distribute leaflets in Cape Girardeau on September 28th, but the city’s anti-litter ordinance prohibits placing handbills in or upon vehicles.
