Two Ku Klux Klan groups have recently recruited in New Lenox, Illinois. The leader of one and a high-ranking member of another have questioned the legitimacy of each other's organizations.

Who's telling the truth? Does it even matter?

"This guy’s group, the Traditionalist American Knights, ain’t even been around three years," Robert Jones, the Imperial Klaliff of the Loyal White Knights, said of a rival KKK organization that distributed literature in New Lenox last weekend.

Jones' group left KKK fliers in New Lenox driveways five months ago. On Wednesday, he ripped the other Klan outfit and questioned the ancestry of its leader, Imperial Wizard Frank Ancona.

Jones said "Frank Ancona is also Jewish and his wife is Jewish and he’s being exposed all through the Klan world as a fake and he ain’t even white and you can actually look his family tree up which we’ve got his family tree which we can give y'all too and you can post it."

Ancona denied being Jewish.

"If I was a Jew, I'd admit it," he said, calling Jones and his group "drunks and druggies." He said some in that outfit had been kicked out of his organization for substance abuse and other criminal activity.

Ancona claimed the Loyal White Knights have criticized him for not subscribing to hate-based philosophies.

"According to them, to be a Klansman you have to hate everybody," he said, adding, "they'll march with Nazis."

Hey Stanley - do you have actual evidence that Strom Thurmond raped a little black girl? Post the link. I am not a fan of Senator Strom by any means. He was a racist and an unreconstructed state's righter in the worst sense of that term. But rapist? Bill Clinton was actually accused of rape although never prosecuted for it and it was swept under the carpet; his list of lady companions is too well known to deny. If Strom committed rape, or there was a woman who actually made an accusation (whether verified or a complaint was acted on or not is another matter) please provide the link. Or, if this is just another case of "urban legend", you might clear that up too.

Tony - How do you know the KKK doesn't carry around weapons illegally now? Huh? And how do you know that they will receive permits? I would imagine most of them have some type of record which would disqualify them.

@Grumpy Old Man , "actual evidence" ... think i said "maybe" ... but apologize shouldn't have mentioned the possibility ... but consider: "in the South Carolina of the 1920s, it was not a relationship of social equals, and only one had veto power." http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/she-the-people/wp/2013/02/05/strom-thurmonds-black-daughter-a-flesh-and-blood-symbol-of-americas-complicated-racial-history/ <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< BTW i am/was a thurmond fan (not of his politics) ... remember he came to my little hi-school when he was elected SC gov and brought his first miss SC bride with him ... we shook hands ... a nice man and very helpful to SC folks (he was a DEM then and you know the DEMs then are the GOPs now) +++ butt of course more a fan of slick willie and the DEMs >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> +++ re 'How do you know the KKK doesn't carry weapons illegally' [GOM] ... they do and besides it's their 2nd amendment right ... they are members of a necessary, well regulated militia!! and pigs fly! oh, they really care about permits ...

wondering, wondering if you're wondering too: why catty back-in, the FOOL and the dela anarchist sound so much alike with their vitriolic crap ... and why they all call sweet stanley names (did he get their [his/her] dumb goat)? ... surely they are not one and the same... no sane person would try to be so sophomoric cute by 1/2 ... now would they? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> +++ BTW, a definition, sophomoric: conceited and over confident of knowledge but poorly informed and immature +++ seems the shoe fits the three. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> +++ think a half-wit gave the three a small piece of his mind, and they divided it 3 ways and held on to it.
