Final Solution for Hooded Terrorism?
lt was back in 1947 that Drew Person (Jack Anderson's predecessor) dubbed Kennedy "the nation's No. 1 Klan-buster."
Using inside data supplied by Kennedy, Person broadcast coast to-coast every Sunday "the Minutes oft Klan's Last Meeting," including the roll call naming the names of-sheriffs, police chieftains, public ofﬁcials and businessmen who had been in attendance. "They never showed up again," Kennedy still chuckles, some 60 years after the event.
"Attendance and recruitment hit rock bottom, and, best of all, Klan violence ground to a halt," he recalls. "They were afraid to move a muscle."
Grand Dragon Sam Green put out an all-klavems bulletin, announcing that "Kennedy's ass is worth $1,000 per pound, FOB Atlanta. At the time, a rank-and-ﬁle Kluxer complained bitterly, 'Kennedy's got more on the Klan than the Klan has on itself.” Now, 60 years later and at age 93, Kennedy says he is going to prove that Klansman was right. Before posting his collection of secret Klan documents on his Foundation website, Kennedy says he placed originals in a number of repositories for safe-keeping.
Here on his website Stetson has planted a bombshell which will hopefully prove to be the Mother of All Klanbusts of the "Invisible Empire's" network of terrorist cells. Everything will be revealed, from the "Prescript" of the original Reconstruction Klan, to the governing instruments of the "reincarnated Klan of 1915, and its fulminations on down to the present day. When this series of exposes has been completed, the robed, hooded, and masked order will stand naked before the world, a "secret order" without a secret left to its name," Kennedy said. All klansmen take an oath that, in the event that they ever divulge a Klan secret, they will "willingly accept death, death, death at the hands of a brother.
"The oath doesn't say what the penalty is for divulging all of the Klan's secrets," Kennedy said.
"The dumb Klux are not so dumb as to want to go on sitting through a bunch of gobbledygook, knowing that anybody and everybody in the world can pull it up with a click on a computer," Kennedy believes.
"For generations, secrecy has been the Klan's stock-in-trade," he concluded "Without any, here's hoping it will just fold its robes, and fade away and die.
