What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 19 in a series – “In some locations, 60 percent or more of Klansmen were Masons.”

August 22nd, 2019

“These three parents instilled a set of beliefs in their offspring. The Klan’s fourth parent—the hundreds of fraternal societies in the United States—bestowed upon its child a mode of male bonding through brotherhood and ritual. Overlap was particularly large between the KKK and the Masons, an order that had long been anti-Catholic. One Mason reported that “Klan-joining became contagious and ran epidemic” throughout the Masonic lodges in the 1920s. 13 In some locations, 60 percent or more of Klansmen were Masons.”
