Has the KKK Sided with Justice Thomas on Alabama Gay Marriage?

Politics make strange bedfellows?

Less than a day after United States Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas rebuked his fellow justices for allowing same-sex marriages to proceed in Alabama Monday, a Mississippi chapter of the the Ku Klux Klan expressed views that might align with the country's first African-American official on the high court the when it comes to marriage equality in the Cotton State.

Following the decision by Alabama State Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore to order local probate judges not to comply with a federal judge's ruling allowing gay marriage, a local chapter of the KKK from neighboring state Mississippi issued a "Call to arms in Alabama," praising Moore for his defiance of a federal judge's ruling that deemed the state's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional.

A statement issued Tuesday by Imperial Wizard Brent Waller of the Mississippi KKK group the United Dixie White Knights, which makes reference to "fudge packers from Hollywood" and calls the U.S. Civil War "the 2nd war for independence .. lost in 1865," issues a "call to arms" to resist "the outside forces that have ruled this nation since the end of the War of Northern Aggression."

The statement reads in full:

The Mississippi Klan salutes Alabama's chief justice Roy Moore, for refusing to bow to the yoke of Federal tyranny. The Feds have no authority over individual States marriage laws. The fudgepackers from Hollywood and all major news networks are in shock that the good people from the heart of Dixie are resisting their Imperialist, Communist Homosexual agenda!

Alabama has a Constitutional amendment, that clearly says marriage is defined as being between a man and a woman.

But much as they have since the 2nd war for independence was lost in 1865, the Federal Government by way of it's foreign masters seems set to push this abomination, on the God fearing people of Alabama. Will they send Jack Booted thugs to enforce it? Remains to be seen, but a simple study of history will show they once burned, destroyed and looted the state of Alabama. Georgia was burned almost to the ground, and in our state, Meridian Mississippi was destroyed by blue bellied sledgehammers in one day.

We call upon all Klansman and White Southern Nationalist to help in the massive protest's coming, Not by wearing your colors, but by joining in with the Christian community's protests that are surly coming against tyrannical Federal judges. We have made the decision that we don't want to distract attention away from the issue, as anytime the Klan rides, we are made the issue by the zionist controlled media. Members are encouraged to lend a hand, make signs, recruit etc., but leave any insignia, colors, shirts etc at the house. We want to infiltrate these protests and make sure they are kept running in military fashion and not bullied by the outside agitators.

Let today be the day, that the outside forces that have ruled this nation since the end of the War of Northern Aggression be given notice, "The God fearing White man will no longer stand for your immorality, your Illegal unjust judges and laws. Your attempts to turn us into a third world cesspool must be defeated. Unlike the 1950's and 60's we see you clearly for the enemy you are. Until we drive the spear of God and truth through your lying cold black hearts, the Klan will leave the light on for you."

If the Klan makes good on its promise, they could be joining anti-gay marriage groups like the National Organization for Marriage and the Family Research Council in a third annual "March for Marriage," scheduled to take place on April 25 in Washington D.C..

On Monday, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, along with fellow justice Antonin Scalia, dissented from the high court's refusal to block same-sex marriages from starting in Alabama. Thomas, who voted against the repeal of DOMA in 2013, wrote in his dissenting opinion Monday that the court's move to allow Alabama marriages to proceed "may well be seen as a signal of the court's intended resolution" before it hears cases from four other states on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage bans.

Oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court that may result in deciding the issue of marriage equality, begin in April. A decision is expected in June.

This isn't first time Thomas has found himself on the same side of an issue with the KKK. In June 2013, he ruled to dismantle a key provision of the Voting Rights Act, one of the pillars of the civil rights movement.

A man of many contradictions, Thomas, who was born in poverty in rural Georgia is an opponent of Affirmative Action laws despite the fact they allowed him to attend Yale Law School.
