What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 17 in a series – “They should be kept out—and put out.”

August 20th, 2019

“These organizations focused specifically on the large-scale inmigration of Catholics, Orthodox Christians (sometimes called “Greek Catholics”), and Jews that had begun in the 1880s. The Klan argued not only for an end to the immigration of non-“ Nordics” but also for deporting those already here. The date of their inmigration, their longevity in the United States, mattered not. The country should expel “certain types and races which will not in a hundred years of residence here be anything but a menace. They should be kept out—and put out.” 7”
