What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 9 in a series – “…melding racism and ethnic bigotry with evangelical Protestant morality.”

August 12th, 2019

“But the old Klan’s “white” supremacy over blacks was no longer up to the task; only the supremacy of Anglo-Saxon Protestants, aka “100% Americans,” could save the country. “The Anglo-Saxon is the typeman of history. To him must yield the self-centered Hebrew, the cultured Greek, the virile Roman, the mystic Oriental.” 14 The second Klan took off by melding racism and ethnic bigotry with evangelical Protestant morality.”
