AP: Fears Over Illegal Immigration Fueling KKK Membership

You gotta love the media... Prepare for your draw to drop as you read this AP piece:

Fears over illegal immigration are fueling a resurgence in membership to the KuKlux Klan in North Carolina and across the country, according to Klan officials and organizations that track hate groups.

In Gaston County near Charlotte, the imperial wizard of the Mount Holly-based chapter of the Klan says membership is growing faster than he's seen since joining in the 1960s.

"People are tired of this mess," said Virgil Griffin, 62. "The illegal immigrants are taking this country over."

Griffin recounted 1960s Klan rallies when dozens, sometimes hundreds, marched through towns such as Mount Holly, Salisbury and Wilmington.

"We were strong in the '60s," he said. "We're not that strong now. We're hoping to get there."
The group wants to increase its numbers so it can influence local and national politics. The Klan's goals include military border enforcement and ending taxpayer-funded services to illegal immigrants.
Is the liberal media shameless? Yes. Practically comparing those who believe in border enforcement with the KKK? My God, no scruples, whatsoever....
