(I also found Pts II & III of the "Illuminatti" LP series at Kobeys a month ago
so it was the masons who invented the handshake?
Are you serious
The Klan was founded in Polaski, Tennessee, in 1866 by 6 Confederate officers. One of them, and the first Imperial Wizard of the KKK, was a former Confederate general and Freemason, Nathan Bedford Forrest.
???? ??Albert Pike held the office of Chief Justice of the KKK while he was simultaneously Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite of Masonry, in the Southern Jurisdiction...
?????? The KKK was known as the "Invisible Empire of the South"... in 1869 Forrest ordered the Empire to disband because of the extreme violence.
?????? 1915 was the rebirth of the KKK, just after the film "The rebirth of a Nation" where Klansmen were romantically portrayed as heroes who had preserved the moral fiber and character of America... this time another Mason, W. J. Simmons, was the architect. By the mid-1920s they controlled some states such as Indiana from the courthouse to the statehouse. Almost all of the top officials of the revived Klan were also Masons, with a total of 5 million members, most of them Masons and white Protestants, with several Senators and Governors.
?????? By 1944 the KKK collapsed, in a storm of corruption, murder, rape, and torture... Today, there are a few thousands left, very divided... each one wants to be be a Grand Wizard of nothing!.
thx Soulrez, I am playing the devil's advocate
I was curious to see who would come out of the woodwork on this one.
mason watch one mighty fine bunch of racist folls...
Before you jump on the mason-hater bandwagon, take a look who spews all the anti-mason rhetoric. The Christian Fundies, and right-wing fanatics.
The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers, which are cited to justify it.

ive seen mason racisim first hand bro, the only difference btwn them & the klan is the masons have adopted satanic type shit, anton levay was a high ranking mason, as is GW, i know what side im on bro, & i will never support anything the masons hide behind, the masons are good at the age old saying "keep your enemies close" as your list supports...
& if you do your research a little more you will see many of the "famous" on that list have denounced their memberships after learning more about it...
Soulrez, you should balance out your reading on the subject... I think you are probably getting all your info from anti-mason sites.Do you have friends that are masons?I do, and they were not racists...
Do you know the relations between the Nation of Islam and the Masons? The NOI is a grandchild of freemasory... in a sense. The organization that spawned the NOI eventually, was heavily influenced by freemasonry. Now... what was it that influenced freemasonry? Esoteric Islam, going back at least to the Crusades, with the Templar's dealings with the Hashisheen.
Soulrez, do you know much about the Moorish Science Temple of America?
Are you serious
Yes, I have had enough with the lizard folk. I am ready to be down with some fany behind the scenes action.
bottom line i doubt your brother being in the prine hall masons has to deal w/ what other masons lodges do, since i doubt a black lodge is gonna be dealing w/ the klan... i mean shit one of the masons lgos is 3 k's & another is a swaztika w/ a 32 on it, im not dissin you or your bro but i think you all ready know that
