Ever since the inception of the Ku Klux Klan in December 24,1865 they have terrorized American citizens. This group has a long history of murder & intimidation of people based on color and religion. The KKK has lynched 3446 blacks and 1297 whites based of the research of The Tuskeegee Institute. The KKK has raped,murdered people for registering to vote, and destroyed towns built by African Americans. Clear documented evidence is available through picture and video of their murderous acts. Black Americans have suffered the most under this terror group. Terrorism is the use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims. We ask if ISIS or ISIL is labeled a terrorist group for their acts, then surely the KKK fit the clear description of a terrorist.
Response to Petition
Thank you for signing a petition on the We the People platform asking the Administration to "Formally recognize the Ku Klux Klan as a terrorist organization."
We responded to a petition making a similar request last year. As we said in that response, white supremacy extremists "represent a continued threat to the ideals of our nation" and the U.S. government has long identified such groups as posing a terrorism threat. If you have information on terror threats of any kind, submit a tip here, or contact your local FBI field office.
You can read the full response here.
Thank you again for your participation in the platform.
