The Ku Klux Klan, those cuddly guys in white hoods and burning crosses, want to show they’re more than just a White Supremacist group. The KKK are rebranding themselves in a town in Pennsylvania, and have started a neighborhood watch program to respond to a rash of break-ins.

In the town of Fairview Township, a chapter of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan began their neighborhood watch program on Monday. The group’s leader and Imperial Grand Wizard Frank Ancona signed off on the deal and spoke with a local newspaper about the program.

From Penn Live:

Leadership of a local Traditional American Knights chapter contacted the organization’s headquarters in Park Hills, Mo., to find out whether the national organization would sponsor the crime watch, and [president and Imperial Grand Wizard Frank] Ancona said he gave the midstate “klavern” his blessing.

“It’s just like any neighborhood watch program. It’s not targeting any specific ethnicity. We would report anything we see to law enforcement,” Ancona said. “We don’t hate people. We are an organization who looks out for our race. We believe in racial separation. God created each species after its kind and saw that it was good.”

OK, then.

Last Friday, Fairview Township residents woke up that morning to find fliers from the Traditionalist American Knights assuring them that the KKK has their back. The flier bears this message: “Neighborhood Watch. You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake.”

At the bottom of the flier was a 24-hour “Klanline” in case one needs the hooded warriors with the longstanding racist history to become your champion of the night. Police in the area have been alerted about the KKK propaganda but refused to divulge any information regarding an investigation.

The KKK hasn’t had a banner month with Frazier Glenn Miller going “rouge” according to Ancona, denouncing the man’s actions in the Kansas shooting that left three dead.

Comforting to know that the KKK recognizes crazy when they see it because who else would you want guarding your neighborhood, right?
