Apparently, we are all dead wrong in the way history views the White supremacist organization the Ku Klux Klan, according to Frank Ancona, imperial wizard of the Traditional American Knights of the KKK in Virginia. The president of the southern chapter reportedly wants to “set the record straight” and dispel the racial and violent negative image that has surrounded the KKK for eons, according to NBC 12,
Ancona contends, ”We don’t hate people because of their race. We are a Christian organization. Because of the acts of a few rogue Klansmen, all are supposed to be murderers and wanting to lynch Black people and we’re supposed to be terrorists. That’s a complete falsehood.”
The Klansman, who has been heading his chapter for the past six years, is adamant about changing the organization’s public image. Ancona maintains that there is nothing morally or ethically wrong in wanting to keep his race White, telling NBC 12, “We want to stay White. It’s not a hateful thing to want to maintain White supremacy.”
While addressing a user on Twitter recently, Ancona described the KKK as a group that does not perpetuate hate but is instead fueled by God’s love, race, and nation. He also claimed that Jesus was not a Jew and said the crowd only “called him a Jew to mock him,” adding, “the Jews killed Christ.”
According to the website of former KKK member Johnny Clary, a pastor, who now promotes racial unity but who once was one of the most-nefarious national Klan leaders in America after being elected to the very top, membership in the KKK has increased tremendously since President Barack Obama took office.
“There are at least 1,000 White power organizations operating in the United States, either under the name of the Ku Klux Klan or under other names with the exact same agenda and beliefs.” Clary also states that the “FBI, SPLC, and ADL put support and membership at an all-time alarming rate.”
Ancona agrees with Clary’s assessment of the KKK’s membership in that his organization’s numbers have tripled, and he notes that the recruitment process is highly vigorous as well. Ancona says the recruitment flyers that have been handed out and tossed by those who claim they want no part of the group have been catching the eye of countless who are eager to join.
On a crusade to change the racist image of the KKK, Ancona writes on his LinkedIn page that he wants “to increase awareness of the destruction of our constitutional rights and the plight of the White race in America.” He goes on to state,”We teach traditional American values and keep alive our heritage and culture as Americans.”
As far as Ancona’s agenda, his plans for the Virginia chapter of the KKK is about “educating the true chosen children of God, shining the light of Christ to dispel darkness, ignorance and gloom.”

They said u lost a step, wasn't explosive as once was, the best days was in the real view, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don't have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired, players traded, won't work between him and Kyrie, Him and Kev won't work, love your teammates to much, there's no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown, etc etc etc....
