Hate Not Heritage: Maeve Magdalen's Klan fairy tale...

Folks, this is blatantly false. The Ku Klux Klan was begun by 6 ex-Confederate soldiers in Pulaski, Tennessee. Those are the facts. This is not open to dispute. Ms. Magdalen is referring to the second era Ku Klux Klan, which was reborn at Stone Mountain, Georgia, by William J. Simmons in 1915. Not only is Ms. Magdalen purposely forgetting about the Confederate origins of the Klan, she is also purposely forgetting the later iterations, which came after the second era of our countries most well known hate group. Ms. Magdalen is an absolutely pathetic and slimy creature. She not only does not denounce hate groups today, but she gives them cover, by making up silly and patently false fairy tales about them. The Ku Klux Klan grew out of the aftermath of the South's ginormous loss during the American Civil War. Since Christmas Eve, in 1865, the Klan has gone through a disputed number of eras. Some say as few as 3, and some say as many as 6, before finally settling into today's patchwork of mini-Klans, which is collectively known for all intents and purposes as the "Ku Klux Klan". The Klan that was "Pro-American" (second era) had absolutely nothing to do with the first iteration of the Ku Klux Klan which was started by Confederate Veterans. Had those 6 men not started the original Klan, there would not have even been a "Pro-American" obsessed version of the Klan. It is absolutely dishonest for Ms. Magdalen to make such an asinine and easily verifiable as false claim.
Restoring the honor!
