  •  The kkk is definitely alive in Missouri (6+ / 0-)

    When I was campaigning for Obama in 2008, I was told by a neighbor that I should watch who I spoke with about electing Obama, because the Klan was very active around this area.  Last year the kkk and other white supremacy groups had a big meeting in Branson.   A bunch of my activist friends went down there and marched with signs across the street from where they were meeting.  I've been told there are some towns in Taney County that still have very active kkk chapters.  I've heard it said the kkk used to hold meetings in the caverns in SW MO., and that the Baldnobbers of Branson were the early kkk.  Sadly, this isn't snark.
