One who makes himself a worm cannot complain when tread upon.
Though I rather dislike the klan, this bit of commentary is rather strange and just highlights what is wrong with much of the alternative "news" content on the internet.While Klan representative Frank Ancona said he didn’t know whether the fliers were distributed as part of an organized effort by the group (as opposed to, y’know, invisible, magical racist elves)
What the Zimmerman case did was convince people to NOT participate further in traditional Neighborhood Watch as the liabilities are too great and the demands too high - including to abandon your constitutional right to having a firearm for self defense - and that being a member of Neighborhood Watch will be used against you. Basically nearly everyone dropped out. Those tended to be Seniors driving around in their cars watching their neighborhood (and chatting with people they know), most of those retirees from the Northeast and North Midwest.
That void has been filed by the children and grandchild of the KKK - which was extremely powerful here in the past - and a reason the population over 95% white. This was an area where for 100+ years African-Americans were brutalized and terrorized (and murdered). Old men driving around in their Buick, SUV or Cadillac has been replaced by backwoods men driving around in their 4X4s with a 3X5 Confederate flag flying off a pole in the back. They have no intentions of phoning 911 if they see "trouble" - which could be actual potential or real illegal activities OR "the wrong sort of people who don't belong here."
NOTHING good ever could have come out of the Zimmerman case and the raging race-baiting of it no matter how it turned out, when at no time did the case ever have anything to do with race. GZ by his real personal history is more documentable as not a racist than nearly everyone on this forum. Basically a candle that otherwise did not exist (claiming TM was a racial murder) was lite, and then for political motives everyone threw gasoline on it and continue to do so. Inherently, people then are going to continue to get burned.
As for the OP story? Anyone can hand out fliers calling themselves an organization - and trying to capitalize on the GZ case - like countless others are doing from all perspectives.
