Vile Views From Alabama Newspaper Come From (Shocking) Angry White Man

February 19, 2019

If it was not in print it would be hard to fathom.

A small Alabama newspaper is advocating for the resurgence of America’s most feared white supremacist terrorist organization, the Ku Klux Klan.  If you are asking how many typos are in that last sentence, be assured there are none.

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.”   The editorial says Democrats and “Democrats in the Republican Party” are plotting to raise taxes in Alabama, so the Klan should raid the “gated communities” where they live.

The editor and publisher of the paper, Goodloe Sutton, tells the Montgomery Advertiser that he wrote the Feb. 14 opinion piece and stands by it.

Rednecks still abound in this nation.  They are vile and viscous and need to be monitored.  We know for the most part they are angry white men.  And they all have that look, like Sutton does in the photo below.

When contacted by the Montgomery Advertiser, Sutton confirmed he had written the editorial—and doubled down on his remarks. “If we could get the Klan to go up there and clean out DC, we’d all been better off,” Sutton said, explaining that by “cleaning out,” he means lynching: “We’ll get the hemp ropes out, loop them over a tall limb, and hang all of them,” he said.

Most Americans are aware of the dangers which the KKK unleashed on the nation.  But Sutton shakes all those facts off by stating lynchings would be a way to clean up Washington, D.C.  The KKK was not so violent, he insists as they “didn’t kill but a few people.”

If this over-weight bubba knew anything about his very own state he would be aware the Montgomery, Alabama-based Equal Justice Initiative, released a detailed report in 2015, entitled, Lynching in America: Confronting the Legacy of Racial Terror. The report noted that there are at least hundreds of lynchings that occurred after the Reconstruction period until after the Second World War that went not only unreported, but also ignored, ultimately shaping the often combative racial experience between Blacks and Whites in the United States.

We are clearly aware that Sutton is not overly bright.   I am not a lawyer but am aware that threatening members of Congress is a felony, and punishment is prison.  Would it not be wonderful to think of Sutton behind bars with some well-muscled black men around him when the lights go out for the night.

They will not need a hemp rope in cell block nine.
