2. Former Republican White Supremacist Tries Running as Democrat for Montana State House Seat

Looks like he filed already. I do not know what the MT Dem Party or DNC can do.

A man known for trying to recruit LGBT and black people to the Ku Klux Klan to create a more “inclusive” hate group is running for Montana’s House of Representatives — as a Democrat.

As the Helena Independent Record reported Thursday, Klansman John Abarr has filed as a Democrat in Montana’s House District 21, which covers Great Falls, Montana.

In a statement responding to Abarr’s announcement, Montana Democrats blasted the candidate.

“John Abarr is a failed former-Republican House candidate with a revolting history of promoting white supremacy,” the group said. “His views have no place in Montana, and we condemn him and his campaign without exception.”.....................

5. More inclusive is an oxymoron for the KKK.




More inclusive KKK chapter makes some suspicious

GREAT FALLS, Mont. — One of Montana's most well-known white supremacists is recruiting members for a new Ku Klux Klan, one which he said will be all-inclusive and shows he no longer holds supremacist views.

John Abarr claims he is a reformed man, which is why he's started a new KKK group called the Rocky Mountain Knights. Though he won't say exactly how many members this new KKK group has, the organization will not discriminate against people because of race, religion or sexual orientation.

"The KKK is for a strong America," Abarr said. "White supremacy is the old Klan. This is the new Klan."

Though he's long been involved in white supremacy organizations growing up in Wyoming and Montana, Abarr, of Great Falls, Mont., claims his opinions have slowly evolved. Last year he met with members of the NAACP in Casper, Wyo. It has inspired him to organize a peace summit with the NAACP and other religious groups in the summer of 2015.

"I thought it was a really good organization," Abarr told the NAACP. "I don't feel we need to be separate."

But officials at the Montana Human Rights Network are suspicious about Abarr's latest move. Rachel Carroll-Rivas, co-director of the group, said Abarr doesn't need to use the KKK to form a more inclusive organization.

“The KKK is for a strong America. White supremacy is the old Klan. This is the new Klan.”

"If John Abarr was actually reformed, he could drop the label of the KKK," she said.

6. Can I just say

Twitter sucks.

How a platform limited to 140 characters ever became popular for transmitting important and complex information is baffling to me. The abbreviations, shortcuts and hashtags it takes to make that work is nearly unreadable.

Ugh!

Now get off my lawn.
