Octavo. 8pp. Original printed wrappers. The Ku Klux Klan has mostly targeted African-Americans in the past due to the freeing of the slaves by Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War. It was therefore at the time just after the end of the war between the states that the Ku Klux Klan was formed by ex-Confederate soldiers. The Ku Klux Klan upholds God and Jesus Christ as the major authorities that all Klansmen should praise. They feel that what they do is God's will and follows the word of Christ. By interpreting the Bible so that it parallels with their agenda of hate and racial discrimination the Klan sees itself as a group of good, moral, and responsible Christian American citizens. As time has gone by, the KKK has also been known to heavily discriminate against people of Jewish faith. Bombing of synagogues has been a common act of violence against Jews by the Klan in the past. However, in this pamphlet, The Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan's statements about Jews are sometimes contradictory: Evans argues that he is not an anti-Semite but maintains that Jews are materialistic and resist assimilation. Upper corners of wrappers slightly creased. Upper corner of last page slightly chipped (not affecting text). Last page partly sunned. Wrappers in overall good, interior in good+ condition.
