Should the modern Ku Klux Klan be considered a terrorist organization?

  • Absoluetely! Without a doubt!

    Lynched at least 3,446 blacks in 86 years, killed twice as many people compared to the Islamist terrorists, jihadists and Muslim extremists in the U.S. since 9/11, 1963 Birhmingham church bombing. The KKK have been terrorizing America decades before the Islamic State. How many more cowardly and hateful acts of violence must that commit before they can be viewed as terrorists?

  • Of Course They Should!!

    They encourage violence. They kill very very many people. If that isn't considered terrorism, then what the hell is? Ignorant, white people should open their eyes up to this because while they are a hateful group, they are violent as well. They're not innocent of killing many people. If ISIS kills people and are labeled as terrorists, so should the KKK, they've killed people. Just because they're white, doesn't mean they can't be terrorists. People, get your head out of your ass, it's not a hat. The KKK is evil. They are more than just a hate group. Therefore, they should indeed be classified as terrorists.

  • I am a black teen male and I have done nothing wrong to hurt anyone. So why does my race have to be hated

    I believe that all people are equal, regardless of skin color. It seems to me that the KKK is targeting blacks all over America and that the hatred to the African-American race is the whole issue of race mixing and how it is a disease that is slowly wiping out the white race, according to them

  • Yes. Their demands.

    Their entire organization is based on the principle that certain ethnicities are essentially less than human, that they do not deserve the same rights, and that they should be killed or placed in some form of servitude.

    Their means for promoting this agenda ranges from seemingly benign public protests to burning of effigies and spirals down into acts of violence and even murder.

    They use their anonymity and ability to gather in great numbers to literally terrorize US citizens into leaving their homes.

    This is clear cut terrorism.

  • Yes yes yes

    Just go look at all they have done! Imagine if they still lynched, killed, murder, abused the black people in this current world. Imagine what our world would be like! People get put in jail for killing one person, let alone a whole population of one single race-being the blacks.

  • They're worse than Neo-Nazis

    This is a Nordic style organization. Since its inception in a small Tennessee town. Now, they are not as bad as before, which is the only reason I don't believe in banning them. But thay have a tendency to murder still other races. The Nazis and Fascists didn't really believe in doing this, though I believe their hatred was more of Jews and Lutherans (but that's for another time)

  • Modern Terriorst Organization

    I personally think that the modern Ku Klux Klan would be something to consider a terrorist organization but it will cause a huge riot as well as it will affect most people. I personally think that the modern Ku Klux Klan would not be a good organization because it could affect society as well as the economy.

  • They rule by intimidation.

    Yes, the modern Ku Klux Klan should be considered a terrorist organization, because they want to control other people by force or intimidation. The Ku Klux Klan goes beyond simply having racist views or perpetuating hate. They want to put their extreme views into action in order to hurt others. This is the definition of terrorism.

  • Still Has Cross Burning Ceremonies

    Some parts of the Ku Klux Klan still has cross burning ceremonies, which harkens back to its days as a terrorist group in the South during Reconstruction. Although many aspects of the Klan are much more peaceful, I doubt anyone will think the white supremacist group will ever be thought of seriously with regards to peaceful intentions.

  • Terrorism is the systematic use of violence...

    Although, they are an awful hateful group, they are not a violent group and so thus are not a terrorist organization. They are a horrible group but every person has a right to their speech and opinion without censorship. There is no need to label a group as a terrorist organisation unless it has become necessary to shut them down. Now, the second Clan during the late 1800's and early 1900's was a full fledged terrorist organization. However, today they are dormant and do not commit any actual crimes.

  • Hate group maybe, terrorist group no.

    Like others have already pointed out, they might deserve the designation hate group, but it's not the same as a terror group. For multiple reasons. Also, that they have killed in the past shouldn't actually count (especially considering there's been several reiterations of KKK), if that still should count, then we might say that it still counts that the Democrats once was the main party of KKK people. Yet blacks and other minorities overwhelmingly support them, isn't that illogical??

  • A hate group

    The Ku Klux Klan is a hate group - it is not a terrorist group. People see things they absolutely hate and believe that they should be considered the worst thing they can think of - a terrorist group. A terrorist commits acts of violence, something that the KKK, who are evil in their own way, doesn't usually do.
