… OR IS THIS MESSAGE COMING FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT?
This website has been consistent in our opposition to proposed government-subsidized refugee resettlements in South Carolina. We were the first website in the state to break open this scandal last year, and we’ve been all over it ever since.
Our view is simple: Security concerns aside, our state simply cannot afford either the immediate or long-term costs associated with such an influx. That’s why we oppose the resettlements – and support efforts to hold our state leaders accountable on this issue.
Others apparently feel the same way …
Take this solicitation reportedly delivered to a driveway in the Midlands region of South Carolina …
(Click to enlarge)
Yup, that’s ostensibly a communication from the Ku Klux Klan (or a group claiming to be affiliated with the white supremacist organization).
We knew Klan membership was on the rise in the Palmetto State, but it’s worth noting the organization still had to rely on a North Carolina-based group to conduct its latest South Carolina rally.
Oh, and it was later revealed that group was led by … wait for it … an undercover federal agent.
So who knows … maybe this “important message” from the “Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan” is really some sort of ham-fisted government propaganda intended to build support for the refugee resettlements?
Either way, our arguments stand: South Carolina is too poor and too underemployed to accommodate such an influx.
“Oh, and it was later revealed that group was led by … wait for it … an undercover federal agent.”
That crap happens all the time. “Agent Provocateurs” are useful to the Feds in the same way false flags are- they use sheeple sentiment to accomplish their political goals.
It’s SOP for the deep state.
There’s still a kkk? Or is it just a smattering of redneck wannabes?
Bernie Sanders people.Charley Manson wanted a race war and would try and frame the Black Panthers for his crimes.Bernie has just taken Obama’s plan to divide America to the next level.
David Duke didn’t endorse Bernie. I wonder who he did endorse?
Are you stalking me?Go away.
Are you stalking me? You keep wanting to meet me in real life. I certainly want nothing to do with you. Who is the stalker?
He figured it out.Plan ‘B’.
David Duke has not been in the KKK for over 30 years and claims he doesn’t hold their racist views and that’s why he left. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5dUgqHsBmJs
He’s not in the KKK but still views himself as a white nationalist hero. He also said voting against Trump was “treason to your heritage” which sounds like what a white nationalist would say, since Trump is against Muslims and Hispanics.
Only racists and Trump fans would defend that Jew hating trash, David Duke.
Only racists and Hillary fans would defend that Jew hating trash Barry.
Yeah he hates Jews so much he shakes hands with Bernie and invites him over to his house.
Hitler’s Nazis actually killed some of Bernie’s family. I’m sure Hitler would love to endorse a Jewish man.
And Bernie helped tag Jews, he hid with a German family. Look up his history.
Hi Pogo that was quick, guess your fake chemo didn’t take long to complete.
Mention the KKK and Gomer Pyle shows up.Imagine that.
Thanks ed, but I’m not into anything they offer.Confederate veterans have been after me for 4 months to join. It’s practically the same thing. I do like history though. One of the lead guys did some work on my house 3 weeks ago. I had made a poster with replica confederate money, he saw it and cryed. For real. I let him have it. He properly knows the Quinn’s. Have a good day.
Just some Trump supporters proselytizing in a local neighborhood.
Sounds more like picking on the potential Democratic voter base to me.
Home run.Democrats are out of voters.
So like Dude, if you outlaw abortion at your house, and your daughter gets one, do you hang her or stone her?
Rocky abortion is legal so no worries…your daughters can have as many as they want
Well thanks Bill. Of course, they can also get free birth control on my ACA compliant insurance up to the age of 26.
And with Hillary winning the election thanks to Trump that won’t change for another 4, maybe 8 years, or longer!
abort away daddy!
Moms get abortions not dads. Have you taken biology, or are you not in high school yet?
We just don’t get knocked up!
Trump supporters would bug minorities wouldn’t they?
This notion is that Trump supporters are by and large “racists” is laughable.
I’m sure there’s plenty that actually believe it(and I’m not sure that really includes you), and it’s a convenient war/propaganda cry for the Left(and some on the Right) and maybe somewhat effective- but to try to credibly paint all of Trump’s with that brush is laughable to those that are independant thinkers.
Additionally, the simple fact is refugees come over and get a full platter of welfare benefits, promoted by Democrats and given lip service to elimination by Republicans- so there’s a virtual 90% of them will be solid Democrat voters.
The video where a Trump fan got in the face of a girl that got pepper sprayed and unloaded a racial slur at her says otherwise. Not all Trump fans are racist, I won’t say all racists are Trump fans either, but there are a lot of racist Trump fans.
Refugees are trying to escape certain death, coming to a land where they only own what they can carry with them. Of course they would need some help, at least at first.
The refugees are only here because of the conflict in their nation, which was caused in part by our country’s interventionism in the area. It’s only right that we take responsibility for a few of the people we helped to screw over.
The video shows the protester confronting the man before it appears she thew a punch or pushed the man.
The man then appears to mace her.
She should not have thrown a punch but if she was groped like she claimed I can understand her anger. She said she deserved the mace though.
Even so, the racist that yelled the racial slur was separate from her and that other guy, and was obviously on Trump’s side.
That bitch got what she deserved. Where was her father/mother? Why is a 15 year old allowed to go an assault people who are legally allowed to participate in democracy? The only slur that should’ve been used is “cunt”.
“Not all Trump fans are racist, I won’t say all racists are Trump fans either, but there are a lot of racist Trump fans.”
Your claim is purely based on your perception, no studies, no survey’s…nothing of evidence…just anecdotal and probably based on TV reports that are cherry picked for narrative.
Define “a lot”. 10% , 50%, or 90%? How did you arrive at your opinion “a lot”?
“Refugees are trying to escape certain death, coming to a land where they only own what they can carry with them. Of course they would need some help, at least at first.”
Prior to the 60’s this migration to the US was an experience our ancestors had WITHOUT welfare. They came here and had to hit the ground running, doing whatever it took to make a living. That’s what made America great. It was a place you came and worked your ass off in so that your kids could have a better life. It wasn’t a place you came to and were handed freebies at the expense of others.
“The refugees are only here because of the conflict in their nation, which was caused in part by our country’s interventionism in the area. It’s only right that we take responsibility for a few of the people we helped to screw over.”
While I agree with you that the US government’s incessant war mongering and intervention has caused the immigrant crisis here and in Europe, two wrongs don’t make a right- it wasn’t “us” that caused the problem, it’s the US government. We already suffer for their decisions in the way of the blood of our children and the money from our pockets- the fact they are making us pay for their mistakes is yet another “wrong” and doesn’t make anything “right”.
“Your claim is purely based on your perception”
No, it is based on video evidence of Trump fans using racial slurs, and the evidence of Pogo, a Trump fan, using racial slurs right on this page. Also, David Duke’s support for him. That is plenty of evidence.
“Prior to the 60’s this migration to the US was an experience our ancestors had WITHOUT welfare. They came here and had to hit the ground running, doing whatever it took to make a living.”
The circumstances of those people coming here versus these refugees coming here are a little different now aren’t they? But since you mention immigrants of early eras a lot of those people were treated badly, exploited, went hungry, lived in poverty, and many didn’t become successful until multiple generations later. People remember the few that started businesses that grew into something great but those are the minority of those immigrants.
“it wasn’t “us” that caused the problem, it’s the US government.”
When I was a kid, if I made a mess my father expected me to clean it up. Maybe if the average citizen bore witness to the cleanup of the US government’s messes they would vote in a way that would make the US government make less of them.
” they would vote in a way that would make the US government make less of them.”
History shows who you vote for doesn’t change the actions of the US government.
Drone strikes have reached an all time high under Obama and he still has yet to even close Guantanamo or fully pull troops out of any of the undeclared war theaters as he promised before he was elected. (though he pretended to do so in Afghanistan for a bit, before reversing course yet again)
So should we blame everyone who voted Democrat for the continuing Bush wars around the world? Does that make any sense to you?
“When I was a kid, if I made a mess my father expected me to clean it up.”
No, what you’re proposing here would be the equivalent of your father knocking over a glass of milk and forcing you to then clean it up
“No, it is based on video evidence of Trump fans using racial slurs, and the evidence of Pogo, a Trump fan, using racial slurs right on this page. Also, David Duke’s support for him. That is plenty of evidence.”
Like I said, you have no facts or figure to back up your claim. You are obviously refusing or deliberately ignoring my request for you to define “a lot”, instead using the anecdotal experience of a few Trump supporters actions that were televised as “proof” that “a lot” of Trump supporters are racist.
Again, that’s laughable to a thinking person.
“No, what you’re proposing here would be the equivalent of your father
knocking over a glass of milk and forcing you to then clean it up”
That’s a bad analogy.
I get what you are saying, our tax dollars were used to help put them in the situation they are in, and our tax dollars are being used to give them shelter here. I have to say though the latter still sounds a heck of a lot better than the former. Maybe the people who don’t like the latter should speak up more about the former, because a lot of them go to bat for the former more than anything.
“Like I said, you have no facts or figure to back up your claim.”
I already submitted evidence, that video from the pepper sprayed girl, David Duke the white supremacist, and Pogo all support the same candidate and largely for similar reasons. The fact that Trump retweets from actual white supremacists to an alarming degree. Twitter and Facebook are great indicators of how racist Trump supporters can be.
If you want a definition for “a lot” then look it up in the dictionary. I’m saying there is a significant number of racists, so many that for one to deny it is to deny reality.
“Again, that’s laughable to a thinking person.”
What’s actually laughable to a thinking person is voting for Trump. : )
“That’s a bad analogy.”
No it’s not, it’s perfect.
“I get what you are saying”
See, I told you. :)
“I already submitted evidence”
No you haven’t. You’ve cited anecdotal situtations that supports your political leanings.
“If you want a definition for “a lot” then look it up in the dictionary.”
I’d rather you define it so you can explain yourself.
“I’m saying there is a significant number of racists”
What’s “significant”? Give some number and don’t be a wimp about it. A guesstimate, anything. I’m easy.
“What’s actually laughable to a thinking person is voting for Trump.”
That may be, but it was also laughable that a thinking person would vote for Obama or Bush. And it’s also laughable that they would consider voting for Bernie or Hillary.
Excellent points and great post,WFTW!!!!
There is a racist under your bed and in your closet. While you are so concerned with white people there is another race that is working to make sure you go extinct because it has been that way for 2000 years.
I will agree that our interventionism has helped create the problem. That said, it is odd that most of these “refugees” who are said to be “fleeing” something just happen to be combat-age males.
If our government, these do-gooder church and other groups really want to help these people, why not set up safe zones in one or more of the sandbox nations in the part of the world from which they come? That way, they can be helped (if that is really the goal) more economically, remain in a climate they are used to, and best of all, not present a danger to us or the Euros in their or our countries.
This whole thing is sinister and it reeks of additional harm and expense to the host countries.
Again, I take note of the poor quality and production value of the flyer. Cheap paper, no color, no graphics… This is the action of one guy acting on his own. This may even be a prank.
So, if this is a “government propaganda intended to build support for the refugee resettlements,” then some one should be fired, not just for unethical behavior, but more importantly for incompetence.
Fits again repeats the false statement, that NC KKK guy was a Federal agent. Not true. At most, he is a paid informant.
“Fits again repeats the false statement, that NC KKK guy was a Federal agent. Not true. At most, he is a paid informant.”
I’m going to be “nit-picky” and suggest that being paid by the Federal government to provide them information on a routine basis makes one an “agent”.
I’d agree with “informant” if it was a one time affair and wasn’t paid…but on a routine basis suggests “agent”, if the definition of “agent” matters:
“a person who obtains information for a government or other official body, typically in secret.”
Semantics but yes there a difference between a Federal Agent and a agent of the Feds. Would the Federal Government use scare tactics to influence political discourse? Does a bear crap in the woods? He isn’t knocking on the Ranger’s door to ask permission to use the potty that is for sure.
Does a bear crap in the woods? Well, there was a bear taking a crap in the woods when a rabbit came by and watched the bear. The bear looks at the rabbit and asks, “Does it bother you to have crap on your fur?” “No,” says the rabbit, so the bear picks him up and wipes his ass with him.
I went hiking in NJ with a few friends a couple years back. Near the start of this trail was a restaurant in a national park that puts out bags of dry corn for the deer to eat and entertain the patrons. Of course a night, late, the black bears converge. So off we go. For six miles over a ridge and back, walking through high fiber bear squirts. Yuck!!!! All yellow and stuff.
More Estill stories please. Drove through there two years ago with the wife, kids and mother in law, boy, some places never change. But maybe a new bulb in the flashing light.
In Florida, she showed up at work with a “I love eating cooter!” shirt on. Needless to say, my jaw hit the ground and I asked her what a cooter was to her. She went on and on about her love of cooter stew and her great recipes. She was dead serious and her husband didn’t have the heart to tell her of the double entendre. I proceeded to tell her what a cooter was in Fla and it sure wasn’t a turtle. She was horrified and now realized why all the women were giving her such a time. It was like when you found out Santa wasn’t real. This was her favorite festival:
“You may not know it but this man is a spy.
He’s a undercover agent for the FBI
And he’s been sent down here to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan!”
Great song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egGdseGTtII
You sir, have made my day!!!! If I ever go back to school I’ll major in History and take your classes.
You’ll more likely hear songs like this in my class:
and good ol’Bonnie Blue:
Can’t listen to ’em right now. Working on a Presentation and listening to Damn Yankees.
Don’t bother you’ll hate them (my students do). The last one, the Bonnie Blue Flag by the Second South Carolina String Band (a Civil War era music reenactment band) is pretty good but the others are well, awful – Die Wacht am Rhein”, yuck, they’re just characteristic of the time and circumstances they were written in.
So who knows … maybe this “important message” from the “Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan” is really some sort of ham-fisted government propaganda intended to build support for the refugee resettlements?
Where does Haley stand on these refugee settlements?:)
Folks (Will, not the people, though that works too) – we already have our own homegrown Muslim enclave here in fabulous South Carolina.
In case you missed it, Holy Islamville is a “American Muslim” settlement outside of York, South Carolna: http://www.heraldonline.com/news/local/news-columns-blogs/andrew-dys/article21180297.html Most of these folks are African Americans (some who converted in prison), though there are a few Middle Eastern born Muslims thrown in to add some “fervent flavor”.
How do you think they vote?:)
And now you know why so many people are beginning to hate Republicans. Your least controversial candidate is a religious nut, who supports surveilling people based on their religion, killing doctors who perform abortions; hunting down, incarcerating, and deporting 11 million hispanic people including children; indiscriminately carpet bombing cities in the middle east, killing thousands of innocent people; discriminating against gay people and muslims; cutting taxes on rich people and increasing taxes on poor people all while his church or cult (take your choice) says he has been anointed King of America, by god; but if we don’t agree with you, we are “stupid.”
I long for the day I can say RIP, to the party of bigoted old white men.
Wow, you took a lot from my snarky reply…
Let me offer a rebuttal:
Your least controversial candidate is a Socialist. Your leading candidate is an Oligarchian who thinks she “deserves the office” and who is a serial liar who has exposed classified information potentially damaging the US. Both candidates support killing babies until they plop out of the womb after 40 weeks (and there’s some debate about after the forty weeks (see Terri Shaivo)). The leader allowed Islamic terrorist to kill a US ambassador and three others even as he was begging for additional security then tried to blame the whole thing on a video no one had seen. Oh I’ll stop there you know Clinton is a liar interested only in her own personal power and benefit and Sanders is well, just Sanders.
I long for the day I can say RIP to stupid Democrats. Not all Democrats mind you – just the stupid ones.
As a Dem – I just hold faith that Hill’s a one and done, and we get some bright young talent into the mix. Someone more to center than O, but with a hot wife.
Probably not for the people who hate them. Duh!!!!!
Oh my!!!!!! LMAO!!!
York County Sheriff says they have never had any problems with these folks. I guess you and your Canadian buddy Rafael still think we should be surveilling them. Should we be doing that on the basis of their their religion, their race, or national origin?
Home grown Muslims vice imported Muslims.
I like the way Will handled it. When I first saw the article, before reading it, I cringed.
I expected the (probably intended) knee-jerk reaction of, “OMG, if the Klan says it then I MUST believe the opposite”. I have no use for the Klan. They don’t even register on my radar, but it has become so predictable, almost laughable, that anything these ass clowns say or do is expected to draw a response of everyone else running to do the opposite, lest they be somehow seen as connected to or supportive of, the Klan.
Thanks for sticking to your guns, Will.
I can go to Metro #1 flea market any Sat. or Sun. and see dozens of Muslims selling their wares. Some are from America, some from India and Pakistan. Some hand out brochures on Islam and welcome all discussions on the subject. Some are black Americans who converted. That place is a cultural wonderland.
Do you have to wear a gas mask?
Only at your house on chili night.
No spics in my house.
Too bad for you. Missionary gets boring.
Another classic case of a racist Trump fan, Pogo proves my point even further. Thanks for the help.
But I wasn’t kidding about missionary gets boring.
It is no different than Christians selling crafts and handing out chick tracks. Only the small minded folks would be scared of that. I have been to Metro #1 as well and they are lovely people.
Pogo – convinced Trump will win all of WI.
Trump – convinced he has this election in the bag, for Hillary.
Trump will win 12 delegates in WI.Add the 12 he won in Missouri being declared the winner on Tuesday and WI is a wash.
Fast forward to 19th and New York where Trump wins 80-95 delegates and 26th in NE states where he wins 150-200 delegates.
At this point whether Trump wins or loses the primary he has effectively given the election up to Hillary so your arguing over whether he will win or lose is a moot point. : )
You mean if he’ll win to lose, or lose to lose.
Well, that don’t get him to 1237. Besides, he comes up empty on the 26th. Kasich takes PA, CT and MD – and the others don’t amount to a poodle poop.
Watch and learn. Trump goes third party end of April.
Sure Rocky ‘vicupstate’ Jr.
Watch and learn.
While Hillary Clinton fights for the Democratic presidential nomination, law enforcement officials tell Al Jazeera America the Federal Investigation into her personal email system while she was Secretary of State has reached a critical stage.
The FBI, led by Director James Comey, has now finished examining Clinton’s private emails and home server. And the sources add that Comey’s FBI team has been joined by the Justice Department prosecutors. Together, they are now examining the evidence, analyzing relevant laws, and attempting to arrange interviews with key figures in the investigation.
Those interviews, according to attorneys, will include former State Department aides Philippe Reines, Former Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, and Clinton herself.
Soon after those interviews — in the next few days and weeks — officials expect Director Comey to make his recommendation to Attorney General Loretta Lynch about potential criminal charges.
Christ Flip , now you’re quoting Al Jazeera? WTF?
OK, I’ll play for a five minutes but I’ve got work to do.
“Together, they are now examining the evidence, analyzing relevant laws, and attempting to arrange interviews with key figures in the investigation.”
You mean, they’re following their procedures? Shut the Front Door. You mean, when they investigations, they actually ask people questions? Holy Shit!!!!!
Fits gottcha filling the pop machine or mowing his yard?
If Rocky did work for FITS he would still be more productive than you. : )
Will couldn’t afford me.
If Pogo could learn he wouldn’t sound half as ignorant as he typically does.
Pogo claims he’s from Ohio and lives there, but got all hard and excited about the flag last year. If he was from Ohio, he would not have cared. He’s from SC, and my guess, the greater Columbia area. Geesh!!!! People believing his Ohio crap need to get a clue.
Buzz gave me some valuable information when he mentioned Yellow Springs.
We got valuable information when they mentioned Lexington Dispatch.
You stupid,stalking pussy I would give you my address if I thought you would show up-even though you appear to be dangerous.
Stalkers tend to actually stalk their victims so if I were one, why wouldn’t I show up? Are you admitting to your libel against me? Just asking on my lawyer’s behalf.
Yellow Springs sounds like a pee stream.
Have a nice day Rocky.Work to do.I have 14 conference calls with leaders from 26 different countries and a flight to catch to Vietnam.
Enjoyed it as usual.
Good luck Mr. Kerry.
Wow Rocky he really is envious of you. It is written all over his face.
Why don’t you make another Disqus account to kill? That seems to always cheer you up Pogo.
Rocky claims he is a world wide multi million $$$ businessman that has to live by an airport and be ready to travel at a moments notice in between world wide conference calls and posting on fits 24/7 and raising a family from 15 different countries and scheming the federal government.:)
Are you Bill West, of West Columbia!!!!!
That should do it.
You outed me?
Nah, honors to Bill, and his passing. He was a very, very good man.
Rocky’s claims are actually accurate on that one. He said something a long time ago that kind of led me to figuring out who he is. He isn’t lying.
Knowing what I know about you, too, you wouldn’t be fit to shine his shoes. LMAO!!!
That’s right. I’m Bill Murray. You got me.
If only he knew, but then again that would probably piss him off even more. He seems to get really jealous of successful people. He tries to brag about having two homes and this and that but honestly from what I can tell he’s really nothing to brag about himself.
Pogo will always be ignorant of reality.
Thank you for your contributions today.
Waiting on Flip from Ohio (or West Columbia) to insult my family again. Any takers – I say around 11:45.
Whiner.You sound like Cruz.
25 minutes and counting.
So, pogo is Emily Peterkin? He makes the exact same stupid comments on FB. Toned down slightly. He probably comes back to FitsNews when the booze has kicked in good.
They found out Flip is ‘buzzed’ a couple of weeks ago.
Emily Peterkin….is that you?
He already did as yet another alter-ego of his, bill.
That was sort of mild for Flip Not From Ohio. BTW he probably started using Bill today in honor of a recently deceased newspaper guy from the metro area.
True, usually he is busy throwing racial slurs or calling people pedophiles, all while claiming the DA is going to go after people for calling him one no less!
His buddy, Terry ‘Grandtango’ Ward is using his ‘Emily Peterkin’ FB profile to make asinine comments on the SunNews FB page lately. Usually Trump articles. People were already calling him out for being a man hiding behind a ‘female’ avatar. Somethings never change. I bet he’s sulking around this page too.
Thanks for the report Boz aka Flip
Emily P. Justingham Too late. Obama – some how- got elected twice. He’s been the biggest Embarrassment the US has put in office in the last 100 years. Trump scares the people who HATE America. And they should be scared…

Why in hell can’t you people leave that man alone,if that is actually who you say he is?
Thanks for confirming everything, Terry.
No, thank you.
You must have gotten Flip one of those Obamacare subsidy’s for non citizens.You two get a room.
So it seems the Feds are actually doing something about immigration for once! Or they are merely trying to out those people who fall for the bait to dox themselves. If there are any reactionary groups, which there will be, they will be a modern day version of redshirts, not the federal agent fronted KKK.
I would venture a guess that the “Black Panthers” probably have a bigger national footprint than the KKK.
I live in a very rural area of SC, over in the northern PeeDee region, and I have not seen any evidence that the KKK has a noticeable presence here.
“..the Ku Klux Klan” is really some sort of ham-fisted government propaganda..”
I think that statement may come closer to the truth than any speculation that I have heard or seen.
The KKK is mostly disorganized rednecks whining on a select few racist websites and forums about their encounters with black people. The white nationalist movement as a whole, though, is on a pretty large scale.
Then there’s that whole fag movement and the LGBTEIEIO movement.
I am still praying for you. Hate is not healthy for your soul.
You certainly are an expert on all “fag” related matters, hence your name. Pathetic, useless Cocksucker.
I lived in a time, late 60s, and place, Pine Hills, adjacent to Ocoee, Fl., where the Klan was still very much active and publicly out in the open. Even then they were a tiny little faction of poor white trash of mostly low intelligence. I did know a couple of guys who were militarily trained in electronics that I sought help with electronics issues, namely CB radios. By the 80s, they were all but dead and gone and I never heard of real, live KKK wannabes until Fruitland Park, Fl. in the mid-nineties. Again, it involved ignorant white trash cops who were incapable of working anywhere but there where a corrupt Police Chief could cover for them. These days I bet you couldn’t fill a decent size hotel if they were to have a convention. They appear to be useful idiot government run boogeymen these days. What a lot of people stick their head in the sand about is that the KKK was the Christian equivalent of the Taliban. Ignorant trash led by a misplaced devotion by a few smarter manipulators. When I see the Left so vigorously defending Muslim Extremists I only wonder if they are keeping their own boogeymen legacy alive due to the lack of Klannies?
Reagan spoke from the grave on Thursday and reminded Will yet again
