An African American reporter sat down with the Grand Imperial Wizard of the Rebel Brigade Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) to discuss a little politics. News anchor Chris Thomas traveled deep into the woods of Virginia to meet with the klan members, with an unmarked police car following close behind.
When the conversation came around to this year’s presidential election, it came as no surprise that the Imperial Wizard said that they are backing the bigoted billionaire Donald Trump.
“You’re paying attention to the presidential elections this time? In your own personal opinion, who is best for the job?” Thomas asked the Imperial Wizard.
I think Donald Trump would be best for the job,” the Imperial Wizard replied. “The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes in, we believe in. We want our country to be safe.”
The Imperial Wizard said he strongly supports Trump’s call to ban all those scary Mooslims from the good old U.S. of A. He added that if Trump wasn’t an option, he would vote for Kasich before Cruz, because he doesn’t believe that the Texas senator is truly an American citizen since he was born in Canada.
“If Donald Trump dropped out tomorrow I would support Kasich before I would Ted Cruz because he is not an American citizen,” said the Imperial Wizard. “Even if I agree with some of the things that Ted Cruz says, I would not support him because he was born in Canada. He is not an American citizen.”
Marty Jewell, who is the education chairman with the Richmond NAACP, said that with Trump’s steady stream of “xenophobic” rhetoric, it is only to be expected that groups like the KKK would flock to him.
“It’s very clear that they are attracted to Donald Trump because he’s xenophobic,” said Jewell. “It doesn’t hold water. They hate other people who are not white, and until they take off the robe and until they atone for their sins, nobody is going to believe that they are kinder or gentler.”
