Dylann Roof credited the Council of Conservative Citizens for educating him about the dangers of the Black Race, and Charles Johnson reported that the Council of Conservative Citizens Is Running Scared, and that their websites had all been shut down. I wish. I’m sorry to report that it must have been a temporary glitch, because I can read their horrible racist site just fine.
But I do think it’s good to expose them to the light. The SPLC’s report on the CCC is damning — they are awful people.
Their article deploring Roof’s killing spree is typical; oh, isn’t it sad that he killed people? Let’s hope it doesn’t increase racial tensions (that’s rich, coming from the CCC). Roof was a drug user, and he had black friends, and he only got interested in racial politics recently.
And then you read the comments, and it’s all racist lunatics ranting about black people killing white people, and how it’s so unfair that blacks are so privileged and get so many breaks from the media. It’s totally unreal.
I rather liked this quote from the SPLC.
Unlike the KKK, the CCA groups had a veneer of civic respectability, inspiring future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall to refer to it as the “uptown Klan.”
Unfortunately, I’m not seeing anything “uptown” about it now. It’s more like Stormfront.
