In the 1960s, on the heels of the Brown vs. Board of Education decision and in the midst of the growing Civil Rights Movement, Ku Klux Klan activity boomed, reaching an intensity not seen since the 1920s, when the KKK boasted over 4 million members. Most surprisingly, the state with the largest Klan membership-more than the rest of the South combined-was North Carolina, a supposed bastion of southern-style progressivism. Klansville, U.S.A. is the first substantial history of the civil rights-era KKK's astounding rise and fall, focusing on the under-explored case of the United Klans of America (UKA) in North Carolina. Why the UKA flourished in the Tar Heel state presents a fascinating puzzle and a window into the complex appeal of the Klan as a whole. Drawing on a range of new archival sources and interviews with Klan members, including state and national leaders, the book uncovers the complex logic of KKK activity. David Cunningham demonstrates that the Klan organized most successfully where whites perceived civil rights reforms to be a significant threat to their status, where mainstream outlets for segregationist resistance were lacking, and where the policing of the Klan's activities was lax. Moreover, by connecting the Klan to the more mainstream segregationist and anti-communist groups across the South, Cunningham provides valuable insight into southern conservatism, its resistance to civil rights, and the region's subsequent dramatic shift to the Republican Party. Klansville, U.S.A. illuminates a period of Klan history that has been largely ignored, shedding new light on organized racism and on how political extremism can intersect with mainstream institutions and ideals. 1.

Just as with the Civil Rights movement, the feminist movement once stood for upward mobility and equality for citizens. Today that mobility movement has morphed into a downward spiral of antagonism and personal attacks. In its efforts to inspire new blood in its ranks, the feminist agenda has turned to generation-Z with a radicalized recruiting campaign that is as hell-bent on restricting personal liberties of the American male as strongly as the Jihadist of Afghanistan. This effort not only seeks to attack the freedoms of man and child but minority women and the country as a whole.The racist radical feminist enjoys the protections of government officials that benefit from the votes of women who hate men as much as senators such as Strom Thurmond detested blacks. Today we are witnessing unwavering support of the radical racist feminist in as high up a position as, speaker of the house of representatives. The radical feminist movement even garnered support from the first female presidential nominee who in her own pro-female, anti-male speeches sounded more racist than George Wallace. Yes, the Radical Feminism movement in Mrs. Clinton had found its voice, and its voice said, "segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!"But how did this happen? How does a so-called democratically elected government willfully send five generations of our boy’s off to wars to fight for freedoms they intend to deny him? How did this new form of feminism morph into a new form of Apartheid of the sexes? For sure, it didn't happen all at once; it became so insidious in its growth that it changed the matrix of democracy in the world as a whole. It allowed racist feminist to hide in the shadows. It allowed them to change what you and I felt about racism, and the word feminist.The word feminist no longer carried the meaning it once did after achieving most of its financial aims and benefits for the top one percent of its leaders.
