What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 4 in a series – “Instead it blamed “elites…

August 7th, 2019

This new series is an ongoing collection of quotes from the books I am currently reading. — Douglas


”The Klan respected men of great wealth and considered their social position earned and deserved. Instead it blamed “elites,” typically presented as big-city liberal professionals, secular urbanites who promoted cosmopolitanism (and were thus insufficiently patriotic) and looked down on Klanspeople as stupid and/ or irrational and/ or out of step with modernity. This disrespect for the Klan only intensified its hostility and sense of righteousness.”

The Second Coming of the KKK: The Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s and the American Political Tradition by Linda Gordon
