The KKK is not in fact nonviolent. Several plots of the KKK to blow up certain buildings and people have been uncovered. For example: In 1997, three Klansmen and a Klanswoman—Edward Taylor, Jr., Shawn Dee Adams, Catherine Dee Adams, and Carl Waskom, Jr.—were arrested for plotting a series of terrorist acts in north Texas, including an attack on a natural gas processing plant. This would merely serve as a diversion for a $2 million armored car robbery designed to finance further acts. They were caught and pleaded guilty. In March 2006, six members of the Nation’s Knights of the Ku Klux Klan pleaded guilty to a variety of weapons and conspiracy charges in connection with an illegal gun trading scheme in the early 2000s to finance a plan to blow up the Johnston County, North Carolina, courthouse. In August 2005, North Georgia White Knights member Daniel James Schertz pleaded guilty to building pipe bombs designed to blow up buses carrying Mexican and Haitian migrant workers from Tennessee to Florida. In November 2005, he received a 170-month federal prison sentence.
Several other cases of attempted terrorism by the KKK have been uncovered, and in all cases the KKK members plead guilty.
The KKK should be banned. I am all about the banning of certain groups that do not benefit society. I think the KKK never did anything good for our society. They are worse than gangs because they are nothing more than a hate group toward a particular group of members in society.
Humans cannot move forward while being manifested in irate behaviors. How can we be the United States of America if we aren't united? Immigrants are what make up America. America is rooted in immigrants and if you disagree, look up your family history and see where you really come from. It is ignorant to focus on one race when we should be focusing on the whole species.
KKK doesn't care saying black people is the reason of all bad things happening in America and this hate speech can, and actually does, lead to violence and extreme hate against black men and women who should have the same rights as white people. Anyway, although they're supposed to have the same freedoms and rights, black people don't often have any of them because of the type of hate and violence speech KKK and other similar organisations have. I defend freedom to speech and agree with the fact that anyone should have the right to say what he or she thinks, BUT, only when those opinions don't go through other people's freedom. As it is said, your freedom ends where other people's freedoms start, and this is exactly what happens with KKK's speech against black people. You have to be free as far as your freedom doesn't mean other's captivity. Freedom, respect and equality. None of them can be understood without the other.
The Kl Klux Klan has a long history of killing and terrorising of supposedly non whites which I think is racist.I do respect the no side of this argument .They massacred and lynched people for just a stupid lie made up by pathetic liars hundreds of years ago.They burned down homes and many other atrocities because of racism and sectarianism.
We Cant go forward while the KKK are still around it would be easier to get rid of them. I hear everyday that we should be treated the same but nobody ever is the 1st thing to do to get our fair world together and They also need to be punished Yes they have right to speaking out but Racist remarks and what they did in the past need to be punished. They need to learn that everyone in the world is accepted and I'm Not black, not Mixed race I am white and some of my closest friends are black. When WW2 was over every Nazi was hunted down and punished and the KKK Should be given the same Punishment
"Domestic terrorism: Violent, Criminal acts committed by individuals and/or groups to further ideological goals stemming from domestic influences, Such as those of a political, Religious, Social, Racial, Or environmental nature. "
Using this definiton proves that the Ku Klux Klan is a terrorist organization. Why they haven't done anything about it is suspicious.

99. 999% of people hate the ideas supported by the KKK, And their existence does nothing but support the false narrative that America is racist. Let’s take out the KKK so that we can take out antifa without being blamed for racism. F**k the KKK and f**k antifa- neither one of them stand for the values that make America great.
Evry single member of the kkk and arian national, ALL WHITE SUPREMISIST SHOULD BE PUT YO DEATH. THEY ARE ALL PIECES OS HIT MURDERERS, AND TERRORIST THEY SHOULD HAVE NO OART IN OUR DEMOCRACY. . . PUT THEM ALL WHERE BIN LADEN WAS PLACED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN AN DLET THEM DIE. . ALL OF THEM EVERY SINGLE OF OF THEM MEN AND WOMEN
How can you let a group of people belittle other humans has if they were animals. God created everyone equal and we should treat each other the same way. We the colored or black or melanin people did nothing but try to help and they come at us as if we tried to hurt them. I do respect the whites that treats everyone equal and with respect.
The KKK is an anti-American (value) hate group they are against the idea that all men are created equal but they should not be banned the First Article of Amendment to the Constitution of the United States States: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, Or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, Or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, And to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. If you believe they should be banned you are no better than them. If you want to stop them you must: Educate inform the whole mass of the people they are the only sure reliance for the preservation of are liberty. -Thomas Jefferson
The KKK was a great organization the rumors of them killing have never been proven. A lot of crimes were done by the F.B.I and blamed on the KKK. Look into FBI agent Gary Thomas Rowe who helped kill Viola Liuzzo and blamed on the Klan. The Klan used to have carnivals and fairs for kids. They had orphanages for the kids with out family and helped widows. They also built Mt.Rushmore the Klan is a southern movement been here 150 years and will be here 150 more.
Unlike the Nazis and Fascists, I think the Klan needs to be watched more severly as they are more likely to commit racially motivated murders than anyone else. But at the moment they're no threat. Just a buncha hateful beings that are brainwashed by Christian fundamentalist hatred. So I believe they should be watched.
As much as i want their group to go away, It is unconstitutional to go against the freedom of speech. The kkk and their people are disgusting, as for many years they murdered blacks, which is not what God wants. I'm my opinion, the kkk and their people are almost non-human evil individuals, but they still have the right to do and say what they want in a peaceful manner
So long as the KKK remains non-violent, the should be free to organize. Freedom of speech applies to ignorant, hateful people, too. However, the moment they are credibly linked to sponsoring an act of violence, they become a terrorist organization and should be as such. Right now, however, that doesn't seem to be the case.
The KKK may be offensive, but as long as their speech falls under the first amendment, it shouldn't be banned. As long as they're not actively attacking people, they have the right to free speech. Free speech means letting people voice themselves, even if their obscene opinions offend other people.
The KKK is an awful society with an awful history of murder, racism and persecution. The group, however, has the right to peacefully assemble and say and do whatever they want as long as they don't break any laws. Even if one group of the KKK establishment lynches someone, the government doesn't have the power to ban the entire KKK across the nation.
The KKK should not be banned. I think racist people are horrible and do not agree with many of this organization's beliefs, but they have freedom of speech like the rest of us. Banning them would be violating that. There are other ways to deal with the KKK. Banning is not smart.
People of the KKK are evil, supporting the KKK is evil. But freedom of speech is what America was founded on. That is what's great about our country, we can say what we please, or could until the leftists took over.
So, lemme get this straight, the majority of us are saying that a little "hate speech" is stronger than the Constitution of the United States?
The Ku Klux Klan has a history of terrorism and murder. They should be arrested and and all that good stuff, but its the freedom of speech and petition and more! We can't take away the rights of these people just cause they don't like African Americans. That would go against everything the United States stands for. Liberty and freedom.
