KKK: The Fight for White Supremacy full movie review - Empty Sky
Documentary film-maker Dan Murdoch visits the deep south to visit the chapter of the white supremacist group the Ku Klux Klan. As always with these programmes he gets the most stupidest people who are willing to talk to the camera.
There is the old man who believes that man was white until one of them mated with an ape and as a curse from God, the black man was created.
Then there is the person who hangs a portrait of Adolf Hitler who he believes was one of the smartest people who ever lived. I guess he was smarter than him.
Then there is the statement at the beginning of the film when a Klan member states: 'America was founded as a Christian nation and they are attacking our Christian values.' I guess that would be true if the land had not been taken from the native tribes that were there for thousands of years before the white man landed.
Murdoch was left dumbfounded when one of the young Klansman said that he believed that Aushwitz was a holiday camp with a swimming pool, a library and a movie theatre and it was basically a factory where Jews made goods for the war. This man is supposed to be one of the bright ones.
The Klan members as they have been for decades are expecting a race war to start, kind of forgetting that there was one. It was the civil war and the confederates lost.
It would be comical but while Murdoch was filming in South Carolina a white supremacist killed nine black people.
Murdoch contrasts the KKK with the militant black power groups who were also counter protesting against the KKK and they were just as pig headed as the white racist groups including telling Murdoch to get lost and not wanting people to march with them who were mixed race or were white sympathisers.
There was nothing new in this film. I have seen enough documentaries where the KKK need little help to make themselves look stupid. Murdoch was lucky that he was filming when a flash-point took place with the Charleston massacre.
