(Newser) – As Ferguson, Mo., recovers from another night of violence, a new voice has entered the debate over Michael Brown's shooting: the KKK's. The New Empire Knights of the Ku Klux Klan says its chapter in Missouri is gathering funds to support Darren Wilson, the officer who shot Brown, reports Salon. "We are setting up a reward/fund for the police officer who shot this thug," said the KKK group in an email. "He is a hero! We need more white cops who are anti-Zog and willing to put Jewish controlled black thugs in their place. Most cops are cowards and do nothing while 90% of interracial crime is black (and non-white) on white." In other Ferguson news:

  • A rapper who lives where Brown was gunned down apparently live-tweeted the shooting and posted photos of Brown lying dead on the sidewalk, the Telegraph reports. Emanuel Freeman, who calls himself @TheePharaoh, posted, "The police just shot someone dead in front of my crib yo." Thought Catalog has more of his tweets (WARNING: Language), including, "dude was running and the cops just shot. him. i saw him die bruh." Asked by a friend, "from behind?" he tweeted: "the first two was, the next 5 werent, he turned around."
  • The Guardian looks at Ron Johnson, the state highway patrol captain who was initially praised for his work overseeing protesters in Ferguson. Demonstrations were peaceful under his hands-off supervision, until police released video of Brown allegedly robbing a convenience store, and protesters directed their heated questions at Johnson. Now more violence has erupted and at least one police source has turned on Johnson: "This has been a dismal failure," said the head of the St Louis County Police Association. "I think it was a cheap attempt to gain political points by putting an African American in charge."

When Darren Wilson shoots up Goldman Sachs, he will be a hero for fighting against ZOG. When he shoots up AIPAC, he will be a hero for fighting against ZOG. ZOG is busy enslaving white Americans and destroying the culture of black Americans, and they benefit immensely from this "Divide and Rule" freebee handed to them by the very gullible KKK. The KKK are and do remain an embarrassment to whites everywhere, and apparently an easy tool in the hands of ZOG to keep Americans divided and under their thumb. It's sad- the KKK is quite right about the existence of ZOG, but are totally incompetent to fight against Rothschild rule. It takes intelligence, and they don't have it.

The advantage of the KKK is 100% on the side of the black community by offering support! The mere statement of support will kill any chance of his trial winning for him. The white minority in the world is being hated more universally every day. When will someone in the white south get a bit of education? Sadly they keep voting right wing to their own hurt. The international community now is getting involved as observers in helping the USA's black minority with human rights groups all over the world realizing that with the supreme court's striking down of the voter's rights laws and the extremist agenda gaining ground is a danger to the planet. The extremist Koch Brothers, the Waltons (Bentonville, Arkansas the site of the KKK traing center) and their ilk are behind this extremist racism. They have made the USA like an African backwater ruled by a few multi-billionaires who have absolutely no common sense. All they know is force. Payback time is coming and mercy will be scarce as the right wing, like the Israeli extremists behind the 'transferists' have shown none to the children, poor and the weak. Patience is on the side of the vast majority of this world's population. Yes, nuclear weapons are in the hands of the right wing but you cannot eliminate everyone with them without eliminating yourself. Force and evil never will win.
