Declare the Klu Klux Klan a terrorist organization.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 50,000!


The KKK is a racist white supremacist terrorist organization that has thrived by having members and friends in government and law protect them.

They raise their children to be just as hateful as them. They call their leaders by titles such as Grand Wizard despite being prominently active in Catholic/Christian communities.

They work as teachers, officers, judges, and any other profession so they shield their faces with...white sheets... Kind of redundant considering they spend most of their time in the woods lighting trees on fire... Nevertheless

They as well as any other white supremacist or white nationalist group are terrorists against humanity.

We need all White Nationalist groups to be labelled as the terrorists they are for the protection of all people.

The Ku Klux commonly called the KKK or the Klan, is an American white supremacist hate group, whose primary target is African Americans.The Klan has existed in three distinct eras at different points in time during the history of the United States. Each has advocated extremist reactionary positions such as white nationalism, anti-immigration and—especially in later iterations—Nordicism and anti-Catholicism. Historically, the first Klan used terrorism – both physical assault and murder – against politically active blacks and their allies in the South in the late 1860s, until it was suppressed around 1872. All three movements have called for the "purification" of American society and all are considered "right-wing extremist" organizations. In each era, membership was secret and estimates of the total were highly exaggerated by both friends and enemies.

The third and current manifestation of the KKK emerged after 1950, in the form of localized and isolated groups that use the KKK name. They have focused on opposition to the civil rights movement, often using violence and murder to suppress activists. It is classified as a hate group by the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center.


Beginning in the 1950s, for instance, individual Klan groups in Birmingham, Alabama, began to resist social change and blacks' efforts to improve their lives by bombing houses in transitional neighborhoods.

There were so many bombings of blacks' homes in Birmingham by Klan groups in the 1950s that the city was nicknamed "Bombingham".

In states such as Alabama and Mississippi, Klan members forged alliances with governors' administrations. In Birmingham and elsewhere, the KKK groups bombed the houses of civil rights activists. In some cases they used physical violence, intimidation, and assassination directly against individuals. Continuing disfranchisement of blacks across the South meant that most could not serve on juries, which were all-white and demonstrably biased verdicts and sentences.
