More KKK Fliers Have Arrived in the Suburbs of Illinois

More KKK fliers have arrived. This time it's in Tinley Park, IL, the same place where a white supremacist event, organized by Beckie Williams, was brutally shut down by antifascists at the Ashford house restaurant in May of 2012. Tinley Patch claims it's the Traditionalist American Knights of the KKK who left these fliers, but all signs point to it being the Loyal White Knights of the KKK, the same group that fliered months back in a New Lenox township. Without taking on too many assumptions, and without downplaying this groups potential, we strongly consider the possibility that this is a very small group of individuals attempting to inflate their numbers by appearing as if they already have. Only time will tell.

Taken from the Huffington post:

Police in Tinley Park, a suburb of Chicago, are investigating fliers promoting actions of the Ku Klux Klan that were found in several driveways throughout the town, according to NBC Chicago and the Chicago Tribune.

“You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake!” the fliers said, according to the Tribune.

Police told the Tribune the distribution of the fliers -- which were accompanied by candy canes -- was a "suspicious circumstance." Authorities are investigating the group listed on the fliers, which Patch reports is the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

Similar fliers were found in another Chicago suburb, New Lenox Township, in October. Those fliers said "Save Our Land Join The Klan" and offered a number to a Klan-run hotline with a North Carolina area code.

In November, Klan fliers that said "Our Race Is Our Nation" were found in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, a historically black neighborhood, and Rockledge, Florida.
