KKK launches campaign to recruit children in upstate New York with free CANDY

Aug 5, 2018 by

The Ku Klux Klan has been dropping off packets containing white supremacist propaganda and free Snickers bars in a recruitment campaign seemingly aimed at children in upstate New York.

Residents of several counties have expressed outrage over the group’s targeting in recent months, claiming that the materials have been delivered right around the time that children are heading school.

Governor Andrew Cuomo ordered an investigation into the campaign and called for the state police Hate Crimes Task Force to kick off a ‘public awareness campaign’ to counter hate on Friday.

Residents of Westmoreland, which was hit with the materials today, have said they are alarmed that the packets contain recruiting information and not just propaganda.

‘They come between 4am and 6am in the morning so the candy bars and packets are at the end of the driveway when kids are getting on the school bus,’ Denise Szarek, a member of the Westmoreland Board of Education, told Fox 13.

‘The community they hit was a mobile home park so there were a lot of kids in the area, and they hit on some of the side roads, too.

‘Our feeling was that the children [were] being targeted — at least the high school and middle school kids in that age group.’
