Alabama Newspaper Calls for Resurgence of KKK

Alabama Newspaper Calls for Resurgence of KKK

In the editorial, Sutton claimed Democrats and "Democrats in the Republican Party" were "plotting to raise taxes in Alabama".

An editorial published last week by The Democrat-Reporter of Linden, Alabama, begins with the line: "Time for the Ku Klux Klan to night ride again".

An editorial written in support of the Ku Klux Klan.

Goodloe Sutton, the publisher of the Democrat-Reporter newspaper in Linden, Alabama, confirmed to the larger Montgomery Advertiser newspaper Monday that he authored a controversial February 14 editorial calling for the return of the notorious white supremacist hate group.

Goodloe Sutton first confirmed to the Advertiser that he was indeed the author of the no-byline piece and then reiterated his stance on the matter, going so far as to suggest lynching "socialist-communists" in both the Democratic and Republican parties.

"These are socialist-communists we're talking about", he said. "Sometimes they had to kill one or two of them, but so what".

The University of Southern Mississippi condemned Sutton's remarks in a statement, saying his attempts to clarify the editorial "only reaffirm the misguided and unsafe nature of his comments". Do you know what socialism and communism is?'

"OMG! What rock did this guy crawl out from under?"

We are talking to witnesses right now and we don't believe there is anyone outstanding right now who is a danger to the community. The Sheriff's Department is now on scene of the shooting on 19 Mile Road NE near Division Avenue, which is west of Cedar Springs.

Alabama lawmakers have called for Sutton to resign.

The Alabama Political Reporter, a news website in the state, wrote that Sutton's outburst is hardly surprising to the people of western Alabama, reporting that the publisher "has a long track record of penning racist, homophobic and sexists editorials in his small-town newspaper".

"A violent organization? Well, they didn't kill but a few people", Sutton said. "This editorial is absolutely disgusting & he should resign -NOW!" he said in a tweet on Monday night. Jones, a former United States attorney who prosecuted two KKK members for the group's deadly 1963 bombing of a Birmingham church, tweeted Monday.

"I have seen what happens when we stand by while people-especially those with influence- publish racist, hateful views", he wrote on Twitter.

He said Democrats were going to raise taxes and that the KKK should hang them and raid Washington DC. Words matter. Actions matter.

Congresswoman Terri Sewell also called for Mr Sutton's resignation.

"For the millions of people of color who have been terrorized by white supremacy, this kind of "editorializing" about lynching is not a joke - it is a threat", she wrote. "We simply have no authority over what our member newspapers publish".

'Mr. Sutton's subsequent rebuttals and attempts at clarification only reaffirm the misguided and risky nature of his comments'.
