Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State, says immigration protesters acted with ‘KKK type of intimidation’

Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary State, says immigration protesters acted with ‘KKK type of intimidation’

Kansas’ Republican secretary of state, Kris Kobach, said that the immigration reform activists who protested on the porch of his home over the weekend were committing acts of “intimidation” and were no different than the “Ku Klux Klan.”

“They’re just not wearing white cloaks, but this is exactly KKK type of intimidation,” Kobach told Glenn Beck on his radio show Tuesday.

Beck responded by saying that “these people have learned from the Klan.”

“The left is set up on revenge and so they are using the tactics of those who have kept them down in the past, that we all tried to defeat, or at least all decent-minded Americans wanted to defeat and tried to defeat, so they are just changing their hood, and changing there language, but it is not changing who they truly are and what they are trying to do,” Beck continued.

In seperate comments Monday, Koback told Fox News that the incident is a good example of why Americans should be allowed to bear arms.

“If we had been in the home and not been armed, I would have felt very afraid – because it took the police 15 minutes to show up,” he said. “It’s important we recognize there’s a reason we have the Second Amendment. There are situations like this where you have a mob and you do need to be able to protect yourself.”

The Wichita-based Sunflower Community Action intended to confront Kobach and press him to back down from his views on immigration.

    Hurray for Sec. Kobach, we need true Americans like him and sheriff Arpaio, and Cong. Tancredo. Deport those illegals, and quit adding to present immigration laws, it just complicates the whole situation, my sympathies to Americans displaced by these illegals. Google PRESIDENT EISENHOUER S edic on OPERATION WETBACK in the 50’s. Just give local law enforcement the proper power to enforce the law, and get Obama out of the picture.

  2. CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says:

    WHEN CAUCASIANS REFER TO Ku Klux Klan IN A NEGATIVE WAY, THEY ARE SCREAMING TO THE WORLD A CRY OF SAME-RACE DIVISIVENESS AND FEAR.

    Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach WORKS IN TOPEKA – HOME OF, “Brown-vs-Board of Education” (1954). AS A REPUBLICAN, Secretary Kobach PROBABLY FEELS HE CAN “SCORE BROWNIE-POINTS” WITH TOPEKA’S [AND, THE ENTIRE STATE’S] NEGRO POPULATION BY “BAD-MOUTHING” THE Klan. BUT, IT BECOMES POLITICAL THEATRE WHEN SUCH AN ATTACK IS AIMED AT IMMIGRATION-REFORM PROTESTORS – WHOM I ASSUME ARE CAUCASIAN LIBERALS; CAUCASIANS DO NOT HAVE AN IN-THE-GUT-FEAR OF “Klan terror.” [I think many Americans have allowed Hollywood films to convince them that an abundance of “pro-black” Caucasians during “Jim Crow” also suffered “Klan terror”].

    Secretary Kobach NEEDS TO BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, FOR USING A RACE-BAITING TACTIC IN A CAUCASIAN STATE.
