A collection of 18 violent and provocative flyers from a Nebraska Klan group

Lincoln, NE: Ku Klux Klan, [1990s?]. A troubling collection of 18 crudely racist and violent flyers distributed by a Lincoln, Nebraska Klan group during the late 1980s/early 1990s. Although the Klan has interrmittenly attempted to portray a more reputable version of itself by denouncing racist epithets, violence, or even white supremacy, this group of flyers provides unabashed insight into at least one group’s worldview and its disdain for race-mixing, degeneracy, race traitors, drug use, black crime, Jews, etc. They also reflect the increasing convergence of neo-Nazis and the Klan beginning in the early 1980s when groups like the Aryan Nations, White Aryan Resistance, and other sought to unite with the Klan and other white supremacist factions.

To this end, two of the flyers feature images originally used by the Aryan Nations, another advertises White Aryan Resistance’s phone centers, and others feature photographs of American Nazi Party founder George Lincoln Rockwell and Adolf Hitler, an endorsement of National Socialism that would have generally been anathema within the Klan before the 1980s. Other content invites whites to “help stop black crime” by joining the Klan, or threatens violence against “black apes” attempting to seduce white women, SHARP skinheads (Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice”), or elected officials who “formulate or implement anti-White policies which have brought Racial and National disaster (with a sentence of death by hanging to be carried out by the Revolutionary Government of the United States).

Content from some of the other flyers includes a racist poem reprinted on Klan letterhead, excerpts from the book Who Brought the Slaves to America, which implicates Jews in the American slave trade, a blank recommendation for Klan membership, the Jewish promotion of race-mixing, and a crudely articulated critique of democracy.

This collection represents some of the most violent and offensive Klan flyers that we’ve handled and a rare opportunity to research primary source material from some of the most subterranean elements of the extreme right. And for those concerned, these were not sourced from any individual or group affiliated with those espousing the enclosed viewpoints. Provenance readily disclosed upon request.

All flyers photo-mechanically reproduced (quite poorly) on 11” x 8 ½” sheets. All Fine. Item #10555
