Klansmanism is the ideology representing the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), a far-right racist terrorist organization that emerged in the United States in 1865. It was founded by 6 Ex-Dxiecrat soldiers who were saddened by the abolition of slavery and dressed in regaila to avenge their countrymen killed in the American Civil War by killing blacks and burning their houses. There are three versions of the KKK because the police kept killing them several times.
The KKK Origins
The KKK also known as the Ku Klux Klan was started by six Confederate veterans from Pulaski, Tennessee, on December 24, 1865, shortly after the end of the Civil War, during the Reconstruction of the South.
The KKK's Fall
In Alabama, Union Army veterans organized "the anti-Ku Klux" to put an end to violence by threatening Klansmen with death unless they stopped whipping Unionists, and burning Black churches, and schools. The government also cracked down on the Klan, even though some Democrats questioned whether the Klan really existed, or believed that it was a creation of nervous Southern Republican governors.
In February, former Union general and congressman Benjamin Franklin Butler of Massachusetts introduced the Civil Rights Act of 1871. This added to the hatred that Southern white Democrats felt towards him. While the bill was being considered, further violence in the South swung support for its passage.
The Ku Klux Klan Act, and the Enforcement Act of 1870 were used by the federal government to enforce the civil rights provisions for individuals under the constitution. The Klan refused to dissolve after the 1871 Act, so President Grant issued a suspension of habeas corpus and stationed federal troops in nine South Carolina counties. The Klansmen were arrested & prosecuted in federal court.
In 1870, a federal grand jury came to the decision that the Klan was a "terrorist organization" and issued hundreds of arrests for crimes of violence and terrorism. Klan members were arrested, and many fled from areas that were under federal government jurisdiction. Many people not formally inducted into the Klan had used the Klan's costume to hide their identities when carrying out independent acts of violence. Forrest called for the Klan to disband in 1869, arguing that it was "being perverted from its original honorable and patriotic purposes, becoming cruel instead of subservient to the public peace". A Georgia-based reporter wrote in 1870: "A true statement of the case is not that the Ku Klux are an organized band of licensed criminals, but that men who commit crimes call themselves Ku Klux". Second KKK Origins
The Second KKK origins
In 1915 when the film The Birth of a Nation was released which glorified the first Klan & its ideals. The second Ku Klux Klan was founded in 1915 by William Joseph Simmons at Stone Mountain, near Atlanta, with fifteen members. Its growth was based on a new anti-immigration, Anti-Catholicism, Prohibitionist and Anti-Semitic ideals.
The Fall Of The Second KKK
The Historian Lenard Moore theorized that the leadership of the Second KKK is commonly blamed for the failure of the Second Klan & even siad :"Stephenson and the other salesmen and office seekers who maneuvered for control of Indiana's Invisible Empire lacked both the ability and the desire to use the political system to carry out the Klan's stated goals. They were uninterested in, or perhaps even unaware of, grass roots concerns within the movement. For them, the Klan had been nothing more than a means for gaining wealth and power. These marginal men had risen to the top of the hooded order because, until it became a political force, the Klan had never required strong, dedicated leadership. More established and experienced politicians who endorsed the Klan, or who pursued some of the interests of their Klan constituents, also accomplished little. Factionalism created one barrier, but many politicians had supported the Klan simply out of expedience. When charges of crime and corruption began to taint the movement, those concerned about their political futures had even less reason to work on the Klan's behalf."
In Alabama, KKK vigilantes launched waves of terrorism in 1927. They targeted both blacks & whites for violations of racial norms & for perceived moral lapses. This led to a strong backlash, beginning in the media first by Grover C. Hall, Sr., editor of the Montgomery Advertiser from 1926, wrote a series of editorials and articles that attacked the Klan. Other newspapers kept up a steady, loud attack on the Klan, referring to the organization as violent & "un-American". Sheriffs cracked down on activities. In the 1928 presidential election, the state voters overcame their initial opposition to the Catholic candidate Al Smith, and voted the Democratic Party line as usual.
KKK units were active throughout the 1930s in parts of Georgia, with a group of "night riders" in Atlanta enforcing their racist ideals on people by attacking people who violated there ideals this included both blacks, and whites. In March 1940, they were accused of the beating, and the murders of a young white couple taken from their car on a lovers lane, and beat a white barber to death for drinking, both in East Point, a suburb of Atlanta. More than 20 others were "brutally beat". As the police began to investigate, they found the records of the KKK had disappeared from their East Point office.
The Black Legion Origin
Initially, the Black Legion was part of the Second Klan. It was founded by William Shepard as a military branch called the Black Guard. Its original mission was to protect officers of the KKK. The Black Legion formed chapters all across Ohio, and it expanded into other areas of the Midwestern United States. One of its self-described leaders, Virgil "Bert" Effinger, lived and worked in Lima, Ohio.
Like the KKK, the Black Legion was mostly made up of native-born, working-class, Protestant white men in the Midwest. These men feared the rapid social changes underway and resented competition with immigrants such as Italians, Jews, and other migrants in the industrial economy of major cities such as Detroit. Their enemies list included all immigrants (Legal, or illegal) , Catholics, Jews and blacks, nontraditional Protestant faiths, labor unions, farm cooperatives and various fraternal groups". It was mianly stationed in Michigan and Ohio.
The Decline of the Black Legion
On may 12, 1936, Charles A. Poole, an organizer, was kidnapped from his house by a small group of Black Legion members. They did it because they claimed that Poole was a catholic, and was married to a Protestant women. So they punished him by killing him that night.
A Prosecutor for the Wayne County, Duncan McRae (Who had been accused of being a member of the Black Legion) worked to restore his public reputation and vowed to bring the killers of Poole to justice. Authorities arrested and prosecuted a gang of twelve men who were associated with the Legion. At the time of Poole's murder, the Press described the organization as "A group of loosely federated night-riding bands operating in several States without central discipline or common purpose beyond the enforcement by lash and pistol of individual leaders' notions of Americanism." Those 12 men later provided testimonies to the authorities about other activities of the Black Legion & their hatred of primarily Catholics, particularly Italian and Slavic immigrants.
Dean's testimony and other evidence stimulated investigations by Prosecutor McRae. He gained indictments into a series of other murders and attempted murders in the Detroit area during the previous three years. In total, another 37 men from the Legion were prosecuted for these related crimes, convicted, and sentenced. The trials revealed the wide network of Black Legion members in local governments, particularly in Highland Park. Following the convictions and publicity, membership in the Legion dropped quickly; its reign of terror ended in the Detroit area.
