Florida Representative Alan Grayson (D – FL District 6) invoked the image of a burning cross in a fundraising email. The intent of his email was to discredit the TEA Party of Florida and its affiliates. In using this image of a burning cross perhaps Rep. Grayson does not know nor understand the history of the Ku Klux Klan?

Here are some facts about who really created and supported the Ku Klux Klan.

In 1926, Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was a guest speaker at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Silverlake, New Jersey. Sanger wrote in her biography, “Eventually the lights were switched on, the audience seated itself, and I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak. Never before had I looked into a sea of faces like these. I was sure that if I uttered one word, such as abortion, outside the usual vocabulary of these women they would go off into hysteria. And so my address that night had to be in the most elementary terms, as though I were trying to make children understand. In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered. The conversation went on and on, and when we were finally through it was too late to return to New York.”

Sanger was a proponent of Eugenics, the racial cleansing of American society. In Woman, Morality, and Birth Control. New York: New York Publishing Company, 1922. Page 12, Sanger wrote, “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities.  The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

According to Wikipedia:

From the mid-1870s on in the Deep South, violence rose. In Mississippi, Louisiana, the Carolinas and Florida especially, the Democratic Party relied on paramilitary “White Line” groups such as the White Camelia to terrorize, intimidate and assassinate African American and white Republicans in an organized drive to regain power. In Mississippi, it was the Red Shirts; in Louisiana, the White League that were paramilitary groups carrying out goals of the Democratic Party to suppress black voting. Insurgents targeted politically active African Americans and unleashed violence in general community intimidation. Grant’s desire to keep Ohio in the Republican aisle and his attorney general’s maneuvering led to a failure to support the Mississippi governor with Federal troops. The campaign of terror worked. In Yazoo County, for instance, with a Negro population of 12,000, only seven votes were cast for Republicans. In 1875, Democrats swept into power in the state legislature.

Once Democrats regained power in Mississippi, Democrats in other states adopted the Mississippi Plan to control the election of 1876, using informal armed militias to assassinate political leaders, hunt down community members, intimidate and turn away voters, effectively suppressing African American suffrage and civil rights. In state after state, Democrats swept back to power. From 1868 to 1876, most years had 50–100 lynchings.

White Democrats passed laws and constitutional amendments making voter registration more complicated, to further exclude black voters from the polls.

Bob Unruh of World Net Daily, in his column “KKK’s 1st targets were Republicans” reports, “The original targets of the Ku Klux Klan were Republicans, both black and white, according to a new television program and book, which describe how the Democrats started the KKK and for decades harassed the GOP with lynchings and threats. An estimated 3,446 blacks and 1,297 whites died at the end of KKK ropes from 1882 to 1964.”

“The documentation has been assembled by David Barton of Wallbuilders and published in his book “Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black & White,” which reveals that not only did the Democrats work hand-in-glove with the Ku Klux Klan for generations, they started the KKK and endorsed its mayhem,” writes Barton.

It appears Rep. Grayson and Democrats with the help of the IRS are again targeting those who oppose them and big government. Invoking the burning cross is in character especially for those who believe in supremacism.

Pimping on the Poverty of Black Folks

By Rev. Wayne Perryman 
Take a look at the deplorable conditions in America’s inner-cities, or ghettos.  Then look at all of those who have benefited from making references to the horrible inner-city conditions, which includes millionaire gangster rappers, rich black politicians and liberal whites.  The inevitable conclusion is that the success and wealth of these individuals would be in jeopardy, if inner-city conditions were different and/or improved.  In other words, they are all pimping on the poverty of black folks
 Here are the facts:
1.  Hip Hop artist and gangster rappers who show off their suburban homes on the television cable series, "Cribs", would not have lyrics to rap about, if the conditions in the black community improved.  Their wealth and fame are the result of their profiting from poverty conditions in the inner-city, or from pimping on the poverty of black folks while living in the suburbs.
2.  Black politicians who use the conditions of poor black as a foundation to their political campaigns would be out of business also, if the conditions in the black community were different.  They, too, are pimping on the poverty of black folks while enjoying their political careers.
3.  Black leaders who use the conditions of poor blacks to remain relevant and in the spot light, would no longer be needed, if the conditions of poor blacks improved.  This is another form of pimping on the poverty of black folks.
4.  Black athletes and entertainers who share their “rags to riches” stories of success without using their success and wealth to improve the conditions in our inner-cities are also unconsciously pimping on the poverty of black folks.
5.  White liberal politicians and leaders who receive votes based on their so-called concern about conditions in the black community would not receive votes from black inner-city residents, if the conditions in black communities were different.  What liberal politicians and leaders are doing is merely pimping on the poverty of black folks.
6.  Major corporations, which give a few dollars to Historically Black Colleges and buy a few television ads during Black History Months, as well as traditional colleges, which merely acknowledge Black History Month as a substitute for both giving scholarships to youth and developing real economic programs to improve the conditions in the inner-city, are also pimping on the poverty of black folks. 
7.  Movie makers (both black and white) who use black stars and the condition of the inner-city to make movies while never giving one dime to improve the conditions in the inner-city are pimping on the poverty of black folks.
It interesting to note that, after over 50 years of talking about the deplorable conditions in the black community, very little has changed, and in some communities, the conditions have become worse.  This is directly attributable to the fact that, without the poverty of blacks to complain about, various groups would lose their wealth and/or power.  These groups include hip hop artists, gangster rappers, movie stars, movie makers, black politicians—especially those in the Congressional Black Caucus—and white liberals.  All of these groups depend on the poverty in the black community to survive and prosper.
A sad example of how unconcerned these groups are about the plight of poor blacks is demonstrated by what happened to Gambling University, the predominately black university known for its outstanding band and football team.
After it was announced that the football players of Gambling University had inferior training facilities and did not have adequate funding for transportation to and from games, none of the groups that profess to be concerned about the plight of blacks stepped in to help.
No help came from major corporations, such as ESPN, Pepsi Cola and NIKE, nor from black entertainers, black athletes, the Congressional Black Caucus and white liberals.
Where were the press conferences and media angst over the plight of Gambling University students, including the drop in their overall funding from $31 million to $13 million?
Where were the star-studded telethons seeking public financial support for Gambling University students and poor black students in general?
Most groups take care of their own, including Jews, Mormons and Asians, so it’s time for wealthy and middle-class African Americans to come together and take care of their own, even if it means that improved conditions would make individuals and groups who profit from the plight of poor blacks irrelevant.
