Ku Klux Klan honored in US again

In the U.S., a scandal erupted around an incident with a black woman Sharmeka Moffitt residing in Louisiana. The woman has suffered serious burns. The evidence and the testimony of the victim indicate that the crime involved representatives of the Ku Klux Klan. However, the authorities insist on self-immolation.

The African-American resident of Louisiana was found on Sunday, October 21, in her own car, with burns covering half of her body, and the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) symbols and racial insults painted on it. The investigation surprisingly quickly came to the conclusion that she committed self-immolation. The U.S. media have minimized the reporting on the incident, but what if this is the first sign of the predicted race war in the U.S.?

Twenty-year-old Sharmeka Moffitt from the city of Winnsboro was conscious when admitted to a hospital. She reported that the crime involved three men in "white sweatshirts." They doused her with flammable liquid and set her on fire. The park where the crime was committed has no surveillance cameras. The FBI started investigation of the "crime motivated by racial hatred", but to the surprise of many, a day later the investigators reported that the lighter and bottle with flammable liquid had fingerprints of the victim. The FBI concluded that the "attack" was Moffitt's job.

This verdict may be a state order. First, the American media rushed to comment on it. There were no doubts raised that the victim's fingerprints on the bottle could be fabricated by the criminals. 

If we suppose that this was a self-immolation, why would she do that? Moffitt must be either mentally ill, or pursued some political objectives. Her mother and sister have unanimously declared that she was a very cheerful and happy person, and her neighbors and school teachers did not notice any abnormalities either. Does this mean that she is an American suicide bomber meant to blow up the public opinion, and the KKK is not such a harmless organization like the American media is trying to convince us? Or did she fell victim of a racist African-American organization that always can find a reason to be unhappy with Caucasians?

"Regardless of the outcome of the investigation, the activities of racist KKK are an undeniable fact of life of the state," said Otis Chisley, president of the local branch of the National Association for Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). "The problem is widespread in Louisiana. It is covert, but it does exist," said Chisley. It exists not only in Louisiana, but in southern states in general. Strange messages appear in the media from time to time, for example, about protest actions in September at the City Hall in Selma, Alabama, that made the city council postpone work on the installation of a new monument to the founder of the KKK, Civil War General, Nathaniel Bedford Forrest.

Also consider that October 12 is a significant day for the KKK. In 1871, U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant banned the organization that defended white supremacy using terrorist methods. In today's "democratic" America, in addition to illegal followers, the organization exists legally under the name "Knights Party." The "Knights" hold annual White Pride parades in Pulaski (Tennessee) and their leader is a priest (!) Tom Robb. Making an appearance at these parades wearing a T-shirt with the image of Obama is a heroic feat. The authorities turn a blind eye to it, thinking that the ban on Agatha Christie's play "Ten Little Niggers" (renamed into "Ten Little Indians") is much more productive.

The situation is more than a regular occurrence. The current economic and social crisis threatens to plunge the United States into another Civil War. This will be a war between the races. Such a forecast was made by the experts of the analytical center of the U.S. military base Fort Leavenworth (Kansas) Kevin Benson and professor at the University of Kansas, Jennifer Weber.

"By 2016, the unemployment rate will remain close to double-digit numerical values, small businesses will not be able to repay their loans, taxes on the middle class will remain high," wrote Benson and Weber. The noisy minority with high social status will be able to cause fear and manipulate the behavior of people of color and immigrants. There will be a social explosion in the country after nearly ten years of harsh rhetoric on the right-wing dominance of immigrants.

As a result, conditions will be created for a rebellion of conservative forces who receive support from the Tea Party and the radical right-wing groups similar to the KKK. Under the proposed scenario, a civil war will begin with the capture of the city hall in South Carolina by the right-wing extremists. It turns out that the U.S. has already developed a detailed plan for the suppression of such uprising. It is included in the list of immediate action by the U.S. Armed Forces for 2016 - 2028. Camps, allegedly intended for evacuation due to natural disasters, have already been prepared, and the National Security Department has purchased enough special hollow point bullets to shoot the entire U.S. population more than once.

In this context, the Duma hearings on "The issues of human rights in the United States" held last Monday do not look like an anachronism.
