KKK in New York using ‘Kool Kids Klub’ flyers to recruit youth

Police in upstate New York say that members of the Klu Klux Klan are attempting to recruit children to their organization with flyers targeted to kids: ““The Kool Kids Klub wants you.”

The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office posted on Facebook on Saturday that the group left baggies containing informational flyers in the yards of homes in Northville, New York.

According to Syracuse.com, the flyers advertised a July Klan rally in Charlottesville, Virginia to promote “cultural genocide of white people.”

“The Kool Kids Klub wants you,” the flyers reportedly said.

“Please be aware that there are individuals going around representing themselves as members of the KKK,” the sheriff’s office writes. “Recent activity has them in Northville over night where they are leaving small bags containing informational pamphlets and kitty litter. This is NOT harmful and can be thrown out.”

The sheriff’s office is asking for the community’s help to locate those responsible for leaving the flyers and the litter, which they’ve pointed out was likely not a complementary gift to win people over.

“They are tossing them on lawns so we believe the cat litter is just used for weight,” the sheriff’s office says. “They could’ve at least given me enough litter for my cat box.”

In February, the group distributed Valentine’s Day-theme recruitment flyers that encouraged white people to “love their race.”

The KKK applied for a permit to hold a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia earlier this month, and is likely to be given permission to hold the rally.
