Fox Sports is reporting that a former KKK leader has issued an open challenge to a father to take his son to a KKK rally in the wake of a deadly shooting in Chicago.
“I can’t take my son out of the Klan,” James Edwards told ABC News.
“But I can’t sit by and do nothing.
And then I will be there for him. “
And if you want your son to join the KKK, just say it.
I will make sure he’s there, that you have him there, and that he knows that you’re there for his safety.” “
If you want to do that, I’ll be there to support you.
I will make sure he’s there, that you have him there, and that he knows that you’re there for his safety.”
Edwards was the leader of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan from the 1980s to the early 2000s, according to the group’s online history.
Edwards is a member.
He said he believes the current president of the United States should be arrested.
“He’s a very dangerous man,” Edwards told Fox News.
“I think that the President should be put in jail and the KKK should be prosecuted.
The Chicago Tribune reported that the Klan, which has been a political force in the city since its founding in the 1930s, said it was “disappointed” in the president. “
The president of this country should be charged with treason.”
The Chicago Tribune reported that the Klan, which has been a political force in the city since its founding in the 1930s, said it was “disappointed” in the president.
In a statement to the Tribune, the group said that it “believes the actions of the president in the recent events have caused harm to the Chicago Klan.”
“We are disappointed in the actions by the President,” the statement read.
“While it is unfortunate that a white supremacist killed six innocent black men, it is equally unfortunate that the president has encouraged white supremacists and other white supremacists to continue to engage in violence and hatred, and the violence and hate has now been spread across our nation.”
The group also called on other white supremacist groups to denounce Trump and the administration.
“It is our belief that our president is the greatest threat to the lives of African Americans in the United [States],” the statement said.
“This is our president.
He has shown his disdain for our nation and our countrymen, and this is not something that is going to change anytime soon.”
Edwards’ remarks came after a White House press briefing in which Trump said his administration would “look at every single one of those people that have said hateful things and look at the people that say that.”
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from ABC News about Edwards’ statements.
In a video posted on YouTube on Friday, Edwards appeared to back away from his comments.
“This is the only way I can say it,” he said.
“It’s just not my way, because you know what?
It’s my life.
And you know why?
Because I’ve got kids, and I’ve gotta be there.
So that’s the only reason I’m saying that.
Edward’s comments come after the death of a former leader of one of the largest Klan groups in the nation. “
So if somebody wants to talk to me about that, fine, but that’s not what this is about.”
Edward’s comments come after the death of a former leader of one of the largest Klan groups in the nation.
David Duke, who led the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People for decades before he left the organization, died Saturday in Virginia.
In an interview with ABC News’ Martha Raddatz on Sunday, Duke said he has seen his white nationalist beliefs rise in recent years.
“You know, it has increased,” Duke said.
“(There are) a lot of people that I don’t know very well, but I see that there’s a lot more white supremacy, a lot less love, a little less unity, a bit less empathy.”
“And I’m not talking about me personally.
I’m talking about a whole lot of other white people who are saying hateful things,” Duke continued.
And I’m sick and tired of it.””
You know what, I know I’m a white nationalist, but what I’m seeing is the hatred, the anger, the hatred.
And I’m sick and tired of it.”
The former KKK member said the group has no more members and has been unable to attract new members, and he added that he does not think the current administration will ever stop the violence.
“The reason why I don´t think that this administration is going anywhere is because they are not going to stop the white supremacy.
They are not,” Edwards said.
