Mayor Kent Guinn of Ocala, Florida denied Monday that he was a member of the Ku Klux Klan, after hackers with Anonymous released a list that included him as a member of the white supremacist group. In the Anonymous list, Guinn is named along with seven other politicians in the U.S., including Senators Tom Tillis from North Carolina and John Cornyn from Texas. Also named are mayors of Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Lexington, Kentucky. Initially, the group had promised to publish 1,000 names of KKK affiliated people.
Many KKK members speak of themselves as a “brotherhood” or fraternity of sorts…. The group is fronted by Park Hills, Missouri, resident Frank Ancona. He told a British documentary in 2014, “We’re not bad like everybody thinks we are. Most of us are in it for the fraternal brotherhood aspect of it.” Another group member, John, credited the KKK with saving his marriage.
Just a merry band of “friendly” blokes.
Four US Senators have been named in the list: Thom Tillis (was North Carolina’s Speaker of the House before being elected to the US Senate in 2014), John Cornyn (current Majority Whip), Dan Coats (Indiana’s senior US Senator), and Johnny Isakson (Georgia’s senior US Senator).
Tillis and Coats are both is listed as members of the United Northern AND the Southern Knights of the KKK, Cornyn appears to be affiliated with the United White Knights, and Isakson is listed as a member of the Original Knight Riders.
Five mayors of major US cities are also included: Madeline Rogero (Knoxville, Tennessee), Jim Gray (Lexington, Kentucky), Paul D. Fraim (Norfolk, Virginia), Kent Guinn (Ocala, Florida), and Tom Henry (Fort Wayne, Indiana).
The truth is, I don’t believe any of this. In addition, it is curious that any names released will almost always be “Republican”. Just another publicity stunt…..
