What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 44 in a series – “Klanspeople were victims but also unvanquishable knights…”

September 26th, 2019

“MY ATTEMPT TO MAKE ORDER within Klan emotion and ideology does not ultimately succeed, because Klan beliefs were riddled with contradiction. But the contradictions were themselves often effective mobilizers. Consider, for example, Klan rhetoric of strength and weakness. Both “right” Americans and their enemies were characterized sometimes as weak, other times as strong. Klanspeople were victims but also unvanquishable knights destined to overcome the forces of evil.”

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