Imperial Klans of America
By: Helaina Parks

Recognized as a hate group by the FBI
A pro-white organization, establishing the sixth era of the Ku Klux Klan (internationally)
Knights of the Ku Klux Klan
Operating since 1996
They aim to fight for white civil rights, educate their people on the problems that face their race, culture, civilization, and they unite and organize those of their people who are resistant toward the increasing anti-white hysteria that is plaguing the world
Main targets
"race traitors"
Predict "the end of the race" by 2100, if whites do not mobilize to protect white racial purity
Extremists of the Christian religion
All acts are performed in a non-violent nature (IKA)
"We believe that the Man Adam (a Hebrew word meaning: ruddy, to show Blood, flush, turn rosy) is father of the White Race only. As a son of God (Luke 3:38), made in His likeness (Gen. 5:1), Adam and his descendants, who are also the children of God (Psalm 82:6; Hos. 1:10; Rom. 8:16; Gal. 4:6; I John 3:1-2), can know YHVH God as their creator. Adamic man is made trichotomous, that is, not only of body and soul, but having an implanted spirit (Gen. 2:7; I Thes. 5:23; Heb. 4:12) giving him a higher form of consciousness and distinguishing him from all the other races of the earth (Deut. 7:6, 10:15; Amos 3:2)."

Founded: 1996
Location: Dawson Springs, Kentucky

In 2008, SPLC sued Edwards, and two other Klan members, for attacking a 16 year old U.S. citizen of Panamanian Indian descent, at a county fair, because they believed him to be an "illegal immigrant"
One was sentenced to 3 years in state prison
Edwards is liable for 20% of the $2.5 million they awarded to the teen
The case is currently on appeal
