STIHIE: Diversifying the Klan

At last! Blacks, Jews, and Gays will be allowed to live out their life-long dreams and join the Ku Klux Klan.

The Ku Klux Klan opens its door to Jews, homosexuals and black people in bizarre recruitment drive

It's a white supremacist organisation notorious for homophobic and racist violence, including the lynchings of black people. But the Ku Klux Klan is now looking to diversify and increase its membership to include Jews, black people, homosexuals and those of Hispanic origin with a re-branding as 'the new Klan'.

All those wanting to join the extreme right-wing group will still have to wear the white robes, masks and conical hats and take part in rituals, according to founder John Abarr.

The rebranded organisation, called the Rocky Mountain Knights, claims to now stand for 'a strong America' rather than irrational hatred. 'White supremacy is the old Klan. This is the new Klan. The KKK is for a strong America,' said Mr Abarr.
