Joining the Ku Klux Klan: Do YOU Meet Their Rigorous Admission Standards?
Wade Michael Page — the NRA’s poster boy who committed mass murder at the Wisconsin Sikh Temple — once considered joining the KKK. In 2004 he was fired from his job at a Harley Davidson shop, and he left behind a KKK application form.
Did he have what it takes?
About the only information the KKK requires is your name, address and whether or not you’ve ever been a member of any other “secret” organization. (The KKK is particularly wary of the Freemasons.) You also have to disclose whether you’ve ever worked in law enforcement. And last but not least, you have to affirm that you’re a white Christian.
Some application forms ask: “Do you believe all men are created equal?” (psssssstt — the answer is NO).
And that’s about it. Not a single question about education level, job skills, work history, outside interests, whether or not you have a criminal record…
The application fee is $20. The application process is mostly a means to raise money, rather than a way to weed out “undesirables” (whatever that would be). As the linked article says:
“No one knows the overall acceptance rate, but the Klan doesn’t appear to be very selective.”
LOL. Ya think?
