KKK Newspaper Backs Trump's Hate-Filled Campaign

The picture above of the KKK newspaper (The Crusade), from the Washington Post, parrots Donald Trump's campaign slogan -- Make America Great Again. While it stops just short of an official endorsement of the Trump campaign, the paper makes it clear that the KKK backs the campaign of Donald Trump. here is some of what was written in that paper:

“ ‘Make America Great Again!’ It is a slogan that has been repeatedly used by Donald Trump in his campaign for the presidency. You can see it on the shirts, buttons, posters and ball caps such as the one being worn here by Trump speaking at a recent rally. … But can it happen? Can America really be great again? This is what we will soon find out!”
“While Trump wants to make America great again, we have to ask ourselves, ‘What made America great in the first place?’ The short answer to that is simple. America was great not because of what our forefathers did — but because of who our forefathers were.”
“America was founded as a White Christian Republic. And as a White Christian Republic it became great.”
Why would the KKK support Donald Trump? It's certainly not because that campaign endorses diversity and equality. It's because the KKK recognizes a kindred spirit in Trump. They have seen his bigoted and hateful views against many other Americans (Hispanics, Muslims, women, Blacks, etc.), and they like it. It aligns with their own hateful views.
