What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 21 in a series – “…that the people are being robbed of their birthright.”

August 24th, 2019

 

“One common denominator in populism is its claim to be the authentic voice of “the people,” and a manifestation of “the people’s” will. That presumption has often led populists to deem their enemies inauthentic, to denounce not only their opinions but their entitlement to be considered honorable citizens—or even, in the case of the KKK, citizens at all. Thus populist rhetoric often asserts that the nation is being stolen by those who do not represent the people; that the people are being robbed of their birthright.”

 

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