Progressive Klansmen

Jesse Walker, one of the few libertarians left over at Reason Magazine, has written a great piece about the rise of the second Ku Klux Klan in the Wilson era and how progressive (as in progressively more and more government until we’re all dead) they were.

Check it out: “Hooded Progressivism: The secret reformist history of the Ku Klux Klan.”

Didja know that Harry “Nuke the noncombatants ’till they glow” Truman was a Klansman?

Not surprised, huh?

Eh, I wasn’t either.
