On Monday Jared Taylor, a spokesperson for the Council of Conservative Citizens, said that although his organization condemns the actions of Charleston shooter Dylann Roof, it does not mean Roof did not have “some legitimate grievances.”
Taylor’s remark is in stark contrast to the national discourse led by the establishment media. According to the media, Roof wanted to spark a race war and was inspired by the ideology of the Council of Conservative Citizens.
Tracing the Council of Conservative Citizens Back to the Klan
The Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC) formed out of the White Citizens Councils (WCC) — later simply Citizens’ Councils — of the 1950s and 1960s. The councils were opposed to school desegregation, specifically the Supreme Court’s 1954 ruling on Brown vs. the Board of Education.
George Thayer (The Father Shores of Politics: The American Political Fringe Today) writes that the White Citizens Councils represented “the uptown Klan.” He argues that the councils were devised to distance racist ideology from the bad rap the Ku Klux Klan earned since the days of Reconstruction in the South.
But by whatever name they are known, there is no doubt that the Citizens’ Councils of America are blood kin to the Ku Klux Klan. To be sure, the Councils and the Klan are not on speaking terms, but the aims are the same: the maintenance of segregation and the preservation of “the Southern way of Life.” The Councils appeal to the better educated, more sophisticated Southern segregationist because their tactics are more subtle, more clever than Klan activities. There are no cross-burnings, demonstrations, or cornfield harangues to interest the uneducated, “wool hat” or “redneck” racist. If the mark of a Klansman is cracking skulls, then the mark of a member of the Citizens’ Councils is twisting arms.
The Council of Conservative Citizens is linked back to the WCC through its board of directors who are former leaders of the segregationist Citizens’ Councils of America, founded by Major Bob Patterson.
White Citizens’ Council, the Ku Klux Klan and COINTELRPO
“No serious efforts were made to explore the role of White Citizens’ Councils that served as front for the Klan, and no one investigated the widespread complicity in racist violence on the part of local police” in the 1950s and 1960s in the South, writes Adetokunbo Knowles Borishade.
In COINTELPRO: The Untold American Story, Paul Wolf documents the role the FBI played in the Klan.
Wolf notes that according to the Church Committee more than one quarter of all active Klan members in the 1960s were FBI agents or informants.
“However, Bureau intelligence ‘assets’ were neither neutral observers nor objective investigators, but active participants in beatings, bombings and murders that claimed the lives of some 50 civil rights activists by 1964,” Wolf writes.
These assets established dozens of Klaverns and often served as leaders and public spokespersons.
“The Klan, the WCC, and the CCC have all worked in concert with the FBI and COINTELPRO,” Borishade argues. He believes the goal is to neutralize any political or social advancement in the black community.
However, it now appears intelligence operations established in the 1960s under COINTELPRO now have a different agenda in mind — the fostering of racial tension and ultimately a race war in the United States.
“In light of the growing list of serious scandals and unrivaled law-breaking by this Administration, it is clear why there is such a relentless push for a ‘full scale race war,’” writes Michael Thomas. “Obama’s inner circle must feel that it has no choice but to distract the American people from the unrelenting corruption and ubiquitous malfeasance that must be kept hidden from the public.”
Clearly, there is a much more significant and profound reason for so much racial conflict purposefully generated by Obama, his political proxies and agents throughout the Mainstream Media (MSM). Ever-intensifying class warfare has been raging across the nation since September of 2008. The moneyed class has been under direct assault by those who have been harmed by the greatest transfer of wealth in modern history.
In December, Doug Hagmann of the Northeast Intelligence Network told Alex Jones sources within the Department of Homeland Security had revealed details about “a government-brewed race war” in the United States.
In May national talking show host Michael Savage concluded Obama and the government are behind a concerted effort to start a civil war in America.
