What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 31 in a series -“…a 1923 silent film with a cameo appearance by Charlie Chaplin…”

September 5th, 2019

“The great Jewish syndicates, the rulers and promoters of the motion picture industry,” were corrupting women and children. Attacks on “Jew Hollywood” were unrelenting: “Jew Movies urging sex vice” and “The poisonous flood of filthy Jewish suggestion, which has been paralyzing the moral sense of America’s children” typified thousands of fear-mongering complaints. The Klan launched an attack on The Pilgrim, a 1923 silent film with a cameo appearance by Charlie Chaplin, on the grounds that his “burlesque” version of a hypocritical minister was an insult to Protestantism.”
