AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - Many Auburn residents received and complained to police about an unwelcome message in their driveways and yards – fliers presumably from the Ku Klux Klan.
Residents in the east Auburn area received the message from a group identifying themselves as the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. The message reads, in part:
The Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan is a pro-White, Christian organization. We are dedicated to preserving our race, our heritage, and our American way of life. We are NOT a "hate group," and we do NOT affiliate with neo-Nazis. We are just White men and women who unapologetically stand up for White people. We are seeking intelligent, awake, aware, Christian, White people to join us. We honor God, Klan, family, and the U.S. Constitution. If you are aware that our civil liberties, our Christian religion, our constitution and our American way of life are under constant attack from the onslaught of "multiculturalism" and Socialist ideals, then you belong with us.
The message, placed in a plastic bag weighted with rocks, gives a guarantee of confidentiality and a phone number and an address to a P.O. Box to an address in Missouri.
There is no word on how many Auburn residence received the messages, or if an Auburn resident is behind their delivery.
The Auburn Police Department began receiving calls Sunday morning about the fliers. An Auburn police captain said since the fliers did not contain any threats, they consider the case a criminal littering investigation.
Auburn police is asking anyone who has any information on this to call (334)-501-3100 or to call anonymously to their tip like at (334)-246-1391.
