Seriously the Klan showed its true face across NY, PA, NJ and elsewhere in the 1920s with a vitriolic anti immigrant, pro WASP campaign directed at white immigrants and their churches and employers. Their headquarters for New York was in my hometown and only after the very prim Methodist industrialist who owned the then huge Endicott Johnson shoe factories spoke out against the Klan did political opinion shift against them (he needed the workers). In 1927 the Klan held a huge rally with over ten thousand followers near Binhamton, NY, burned crosses and marched defiantly by immigrant churches, including the Greek and Slavic ones. They were despised by the old timers I remember growing up. The Klan' s influence in the 20s partly inspired +Archbishop Iakovas' solidarity with the civil rights movement in the 1960s.
