  •  What do you think a citizen is? (0+ / 0-)

    Setting aside your view of the KoC and the KKK, are you going to deny that they are composed of citizens? Objectionable citizens, perhaps, but I'm pretty sure all members of the KoC are citizens (could be wrong), and I don't recall the Klan being real open to immigrants.

    There's pretty much only 2 qualifications I'm using here to define "citizens group" -

    1. Composed of citizens
    1. Is public (just meaning, participates in public activities - so your poker night gathering isn't a "citizens group" but the Maine Poker Players Association is)

    I'm sure this could be fleshed out a little further, but that's the crux of it. Like them or not, KoC (and the KKK) qualify.

    •  Well, there's 'citizen's groups' ...and (0+ / 0-)

      there are citizens groups.  When a small group of elite folks get together and pour a lot of funds into a pet issue, while they may be 'citizens', I wouldn't call them a 'citizen's group'.

      I'm not sure I share other's favorable view of you or your stance.
