INVISIBLE IN PLAIN SIGHT
The Patriotic, Fraternal Order of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan from it's conception and infancy and forevermore will be known as the Invisible Empire.
Proof of this can be found in ever so simple but secretive reason that we don the hood.
THE HOOD, that hated hood, the terror of every evil force in the land, how they cry, “take off the hood”. But they don’t know what they say. They do not understand why we wear it
or what it means. “If they only knew!” in the first place it helps to conceal our membership. The secret of our power lies in the secrecy of our membership. We are a great secret organization to aid the officers of the law and we can do our best work when we are not known to the public. By this means, we see and hear everything. We know the evil forces but they do not know us. As Klansmen, we sacrifice to serve. Our motto, NON SILBA
SED ANTHAR, not for self but for others. Therefore we wear
the hood so that we may be unselfish in our service. Thus with
our symbols we seek to emphasize and impress the sacred, the
sublime and holy principles of Klan Kraft. With God as our
Father, Christ as our criterion, and the Bible as our guide, the
Cross as our inspiration, and the flag as our protection we mean
to march on to a triumphant victory.
That not withstanding, just like the 33/5 Field Manual tells us in the first paragraph...we must change with the times in order to survive. The Hood and Robe have no place in the public eye anymore.
A living organization changes with time. Some parts of it may remain identical to that which was first constructed. Most part will adapt to changes in the world, in society and in mankind itself. Nothing Remains the Same, when and where it is created by man, composed of men, and has the Commonwealth of men as its purpose. That which does not change, Withers and dies. Organizations which fail to adapt to changes, whether they like them or not, tend to become shrunken relics of their original cells. They become mummified images of a once-living creation.
I don't think I have to argue that due to pseudo Klansmen, our robe and hood carry an unfortunate stigma.
A saying that I like to use is "Invisible In Plain Sight." In the organization I was previously in, we did this successfully in several ways. That is until the rules were no longer followed. I'll tell you about two of my favorites and most successful. One of those ways was using social media PROPERLY...I ran a Facebook page that some of you followed called "Tennessee Taking America Back." I never posted anything Klan or movement related from that page. Most of the post were funny but relevant political memes and writings. Over time, I was able and with great success with getting positive responses, post "It's okay to be White and proud" things. Before FB disabled my accounts, thus taking the page down, we were getting thousands of "likes" and shares per post. We would use our page to get involved in positive community events. We used our reach for charitable events, such as collecting items for local families that lost everything due to fires and tornadoes. When used CORRECTLY, social media is very beneficial.
A second way we remained Invisible In Plain Sight was the UNCLE KRAKKERS ASSASSINS club. It was originally supposed to be just for a select number of male members. The name of course was a play on words. The first letters spell UKA and there are three Ks in the name as well. Before it lost its original purpose, in order to get your patch, it had to be voted on by the current patch holders. There was to be NO Klan or other movement patches on your cut. The purpose was to give someone something to strike up conversation with you about and then you could go from there. To be picked (and originally you had to be asked not the other way around) you had to be able to use discretion when engaging in conversation. You needed to know what and when conversations were appropriate. It was for the best of the best. I won't go into why it failed on here but I know why it ultimately failed. When executed correctly, it's a powerful way to be Invisible In Plain Sight. Amen your Eminence and Supreme Brother IGIT KLASP
