The editor of a small-town Alabama newspaper published an editorial calling for "the Ku Klux Klan to night ride again" against "Democrats in the Republican Party and Democrats [who] are plotting to raise taxes in Alabama."

Goodloe Sutton — who is the publisher of the Democrat-Reporter newspaper in Linden, Alabama — confirmed to the Montgomery Advertiser on Monday that he authored the Feb. 14 editorial calling for the return of a white supremacist hate group.

"If we could get the Klan to go up there and clean out D.C., we'd all been better off," Sutton said.

Asked to elaborate what he meant by "cleaning up D.C.," Sutton suggested lynching.

"We'll get the hemp ropes out, loop them over a tall limb and hang all of them," Sutton said.

When asked if he felt it was appropriate for the publisher of a newspaper to call for the lynching of Americans, Sutton doubled down on his position.
"... It's not calling for the lynchings of Americans. These are socialist-communists we're talking about. Do you know what socialism and communism is?" Sutton said.


And they say we have TDS..

The guy should run for a seat in the US Senate. We need another controversial guy ala Roy Moore running for high office so another Dem can get elected from that state.

Once you understand that liberals are not people then statements like these begin to make more sense.

This is just blunt eliminationist rhetoric.

Modern US conservatives have been using eliminationist rhetoric for decades.

And their right-wing authoritarian followers are just waiting to hear it from their Strongman authority.

We need to read through Mr. Sutton's coded language so we can hear his heart song. As we all know, the Klan is the same thing as LGBTQ so this editor is really asking for a pride parade in his fair town.

And when clicking on the link you can subscribe to this paper, The Montgomery Advertiser, for only one dollar for three months.
That should tell us something.
That opinions, like A-holes, everybody has one.
But.... for only one dollar I wouldn't be surprised if this guy has two.
In these days even A-holes can have an opinion.
Nothing special about THAT.

The Montgomery Advertiser is the paper reporting the story. Mr. Sutton publishes the Democrat-Reporter.

.

OK, so of course this god-fearing white knight's name is "Goodloe Sutton." Holy Christ--the caricatures just write themselves!

Surprised the feds aren't all over this. This seems like a lot of terroristic threats to me.

you are forgetting your color charts. 'ol "Goodloe" is as white as the portrait of the good lord in his den, therefore he can only possibly be "mentally ill."

Well he must have money as well, therefore he can't be "mentally ill". He can only be "eccentric".

Is that where the Nazis lynch themselves? Can we pay to see that?

The elephant the room is that the paper is called "The Democrat-Reporter." Awkward...
