When the KKK rolls up to throw their support behind a cause any more controversial than "Breathing is good and puppies are adorable", one might want to reconsider their positions on social issues. Such is Alabama Probate Judge Roy Moore's new conundrum: while he's been stalwart in his full-throated defiance of same-sex marriage, and earned the support of the usual ant-gay suspects like Focus on the Family and NOM, he's also been endorsed by the nation's most vile granddaddy hate group of them all, the Ku Klux Klan, as Joe.My.God points out.
A statement from the Klan read:
"The Mississippi Klan salutes Alabama's chief justice Roy Moore, for refusing to bow to the yoke of Federal tyranny. The Feds have no authority over individual States marriage laws. The fudgepackers from Hollywood and all major news networks are in shock that the good people from the heart of Dixie are resisting their Imperialist, Communist Homosexual agenda!"
What makes this endorsement particularly troubling, however, is that the KKK is issuing an actual 'call to arms' over the marriage ruling. It's unlikely any violence will actually result, but the Klan is not exactly known for restraint, particularly in the deeper parts of the South.
As of this writing, Moore has not responded one way or another to news of the endorsement.
For an additional giggle at all this absurdity, think on this: Moore is siding with Justice Clarence Thomas, who rebuked his fellow Justices for allowing same-sex marriage in Alabama. The KKK supports Moore. Thus, according to the transitive property, the white supremacist group is a supporter of African-American Justice Clarence Thomas.
