Ku Klux Klan Says It Doesn't Condone Tea Party or Koran Burning

A clear sign that perhaps you've gone off the deep end? When even the Ku Klux Klan tries to distance itself from your actions.

According to some little noticed 2010 press releases on the KKK's main website, which turned up this week on Reddit, it seems as if America's most famous hate group is actually very concerned about being mistakenly lumped in with other zealots on the right, including Koran-burning churches, the Westboro Baptists, and the Tea Party.

In one statement from August 2010, the Klan had this (shockingly reasonable thing) to say about Terry Jones, the Florida pastor whose Koran burning set off a massacre at a U.N. building in Afghanistan in early April this year:

There are without doubt Islamic sects that teach extreme views of Islam but, going down to their level of hatred by burning their books is a dangerous and ignorant way to confront their teachings. The flames made by such unholy fires never die out! The Ku Klux Klan, LLC. opposes this most un-American thinking and activity.

The Klan also says it "absolutely repudiates" the Westboro Baptist Church's practice of protesting at American soldiers' funerals, and, maybe most surprisingly, it says it's no fan of the Tea Party.

"Our Associates, members and supporters are here officially ordered: NOT to attend Tea Party events or support them in ANY way," writes the Klan. "The Tea Party does not represent any but a shallow limited political agenda, which fails to serve our Nations interests. They are an extension of the Republican Party and seek to compromise it. We do NOT support any political party, all have betrayed the trust of the American people, and they have compromised their agenda to support the Progressive Socialist enslavement of the American people."

Emphasis ours, as we think this must be the first time in history that "socialist enslavement" mudslinging was directed at the Tea Party rather than originating there.

Now, when I was a baby, Momma named me after the great Civil War hero, General Nathan Bedford Forrest. She said we was related to him in some way. And what he did was, he started up this club called the Ku Klux Klan. They'd all dress up in their robes and their bedsheets and act like a bunch of ghosts or spooks or something. They'd even put bedsheets on their horses and ride around.

Why can't they apply this logic to everthing?

They burn the Koran, and y'all burn crosses. Pot, meet kettle.
