KKK blankets Missouri neighborhood with recruitment flyers
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Residents of one Springfield, Missouri neighborhood were surprised by an “invitation” that landed in their yards.
On Sunday morning Steven Burchett went to get his paper and made a surprising discovery.
“I found the note in the front yard. And it was from the Klan,” he stated. “I was furious. I was furious.”
The notice bore the name of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
Complete with the image of a hooded figure, the flyer attempts to recruit people for a so-called neighborhood watch program. It asks, “Are there troubles in your neighborhood? Contact the… Klan today.”
“That just tells you what a coward they are. A simple knock at the door, I can say I am not interested, thank you very much and go on. But instead they have to come through in the middle of the night and drop a rock in the front yard. Nah- that is a coward,” Burchett said.
