What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 58 in a series – “Robert Shuler, based in Los Angeles, frequently lauded the Klan—“as sweet music as my ears have ever heard,”

One of the first great radio and tent evangelists, Robert Shuler, based in Los Angeles, frequently lauded the Klan—“as sweet music as my ears have ever heard,” he called Klan rhetoric—in his thunderous sermons denouncing threats to white supremacy.”
