    The KKK that WE know was started by a "Reverend Simmons" in 1914 as an "Americans for America Group" and named after The anti-Reconstructionist vigilante group (not really racist) of the post Civil war (Which died out in the late 1870s)

    Simmons knew that there was always some ethnic group in places of the US that was hated, and he decided to exploit this hate by being against Blacks, Jews, Catholics and various immigrants. As the owner of a "bedding" factory he could supply the accoutrements (Robes, etc.) to the different chapters, etc.

    The movement got VERY BIG in the 1920s, with millions of members in the South, and especially, of all places, the MIDWEST, with Illinois having the most members, and the entire Indiana Government from the Governor on down, being RUN by the KKK---The FBI had to be called in to break it up  it declined from about 1930s onward. with a brief, small resurgence during the "Civil Rights" era.  Most KKKers today are small "self styled groups"---like 4 or 5 redneck guys who meet in a garage and CALL themselves KKK.  I likely have more fingers on my hands than any REAL KKKers in the state of Mississippi.----Exploitive Politicians still however use "The KKK" as a boogey to keep Blacks Democrats  "on the Plantation" so to speak--even though any threat is minimal.

    The official flags of the KKK are the US stars and stripes----as on display from the famous Washington, DC marches of the 20's(See Pic) and the Christian flag.  The use of the "Confederate Battle flag' is an error of KKK wannabe types and seriously upsets Legit Historical groups like the SCV--who have been known to sue.----But is a great tool for exploitive politicians.
