Ku Klux Klan Coming to New Lenox Township?

A New Lenox woman said Ku Klux Klan literature was left in the driveway of her rental property.

The leaflet left on a New Lenox Township driveway.

A New Lenox landlady said her tenants found racist Ku Klux Klan leaflet at the foot of their driveway.

"Save Our Land Join The Klan," proclaims the leaflet dropped in a driveway near the intersection of Cedar Road and Joliet Highway in unincorporated New Lenox.

Landlady Cassandra Higgins said her tenants alerted her to the racist literature and she called the county police.

Higgins said the cops told her it was up to the tenants to decide whether to file a police report.

"I don't think they're too interested in filing," Higgins said.

Neighbors at two other residences near the intersection found the same leaflet in their driveways, said Higgins. The leaflets were delivered in plastic bags weighted down by small stones, she said.

Will County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said deputies have taken no reports with regard to Ku Klux Klan literature.

Besides admonishing readers to save their land by joining the Klan, the leaflet, which was apparently produced by the "Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan," included a telephone number with a North Carolina area code.

The number is answered by a recording that says, "Greetings white brothers and sisters, you have just reached the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, one of the most active Klans in the U.S. fighting for equal rights for whites."

The recording encourages callers who want to join the Ku Klux Klan to leave their contact information and closes with, "Always remember, if it ain't white, it ain't right. White power."

The Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan failed to respond to a call for comment.

Concerned Neighbor, just because you took a course on the Civil War doesn't make you an expert. Just because they're claiming to be in the KKK doesn't mean they're Democrats.

lets see the black panthers had planned to kill cops, stop white people from voting, kept the black man down by over flowing their neighborhoods with drugs. see sam johnson,maybe thats everyday day in your part of the hood,but most people would not agree,and to shantel 17 will get you life for murder. 17 is an adult .

Where was that ever stated Dan? Please attach a link from a credible source. They were created to arm citizens (which was the law at the time) and to self police their communities (black people) over wide spread police brutality (white people) The Black Panthers DID implement two programs that were copied by the government, WIC & Free Breakfast for Kids. Everything charge you are bringing was done by WHITE people to Blacks! FACT! You can Wikipedia Black Panthers and Ku Klux Klan and get the facts on who was more helpful & hurtful.
Queen Edwards October 22, 2013 at 07:22 AM
@Everything....THANK YOU!!! If a black panther EVER saw a black guy selling drugs in the area...THAT GUY GOT HIS BLACK ARSE WHOOPED! The incidents of police brutality and white cops falsely accusing and charging black men for crimes they didn't commit, is another thing the Black Panthers helped to fight against. The issue of black men being charged for a crime they didn't do, is the reason why you see BLACK MEN BEING AWARDED MILLIONS AFTER BEING SET FREE FROM A CRIME THEY DIDN'T DO, BUT WAS FORCED BY THE RACIST COPS TO SAY THEY DID. The truth can be hidden just for so long! I don't know anything about the "new" black panthers, but I hope they'll help the community as it was done in the 70's. Racism sucks!!!!!

Dan October 22, 2013 at 08:43 AM

Cat October 22, 2013 at 12:01 PM
Dan, why don't you just join up and then you will have like minded people to talk to. Because I do not think you have any like minded people here to talk to. You need some new friends Dan.
Dan October 22, 2013 at 12:27 PM
sorry my little bleeding heart liberal cat. just cause your hooked up with the new black panthers,don't make me out as a racist. I don't depend on welfare like you. I have a job. see silly liberals ,pay checks are for workers.
JimmyMac October 22, 2013 at 12:33 PM
Hey Cat, Dan has plenty of friends here.
Queen Edwards October 22, 2013 at 02:25 PM
Dan, stop being intentionally ignorant! Would you like to pay my $4000 property tax bill, hmmmmm, I think not! My 10 hour shifts pay for my taxes along with my mortgage and everything I need and want in life. That goes for my coworkers at the hospital that are African American too. Assuming makes people look like fools. SMDH!
Dan October 22, 2013 at 02:45 PM
not mine. I got a $1.400 rebate from my state this year. nobody makes you live live in the gangsta state of il. can't help it if you like getting ripped off. il. gangstas from il. capone,daley,quinn ,madigan,cullerton,obama, and i believe your mayor too. see he's already collecting a pention being a retired cop,and he needs more money so as jesse james says " pay up sucker "
Queen Edwards October 22, 2013 at 03:33 PM
*SIGH* YOU'RE NOT GETTING A REBATE...THAT "REBATE" COMES OUT OF TAXPAYER'S POCKETS. LMAO! SMDH! Somebody has to pay for the rebates, must be nice. BTW...the name of the mayor for the suburb my property bill comes from is Mr. Claar. So what the hell are you talking about??? (O_o)
Dan October 22, 2013 at 03:59 PM
no dumb azz ,in indiana our state is in the black (ink that is) we pay our bills,and have money left over. I paid a total of $1.800 for a 3000 sq. foot home. your comment was in the new lenox patch,but your right you can't afford to live in new lenox. hmmmm mr. claar,is he the mayor of harvey or cal. city?
Dan October 22, 2013 at 03:59 PM
$1800 property tax that is. so you know ........
Queen Edwards October 22, 2013 at 05:37 PM
BWAHAAAAAA...No Mr. Dumbazz, Mr. Claar is NOT mayor of neither city that you mentioned. Why do you assume I live in Harvey or Markham? Yes, it is cheaper to live in Indiana, but I refuse to work for low wages, that's why some people from Indiana, work in Illinois. If, I chose to live in New Lenox, I can actually afford it, but nice try of assuming my life just b/c of my ethnicity. SMDH! Now be a good boy and go play in the cornfield
Dan October 23, 2013 at 07:48 AM
cal.city not markham. Anyone who puts queen as a first name must be smoking some icky sticky,and for now on you can address me as King, ok ? they have section 8 in New Lenox?
Queen Edwards October 23, 2013 at 10:40 PM
Well, I'm not from any of those cities, but you still didn't answer my question, why do I have to be from those cities. Also, now you claim I'm on section 8, which my husband and I don't qualify for due to our income, which we're fine with, b/c we don't need section 8. Sooooo again, why the assumptions? I call myself Queen, since it's something my husband calls me and treats me like a queen, b/c I treat him like and call him a King. It's about the unconditional love, appreciation and respect...something that is missing from many relationships these days.
Herc October 23, 2013 at 10:54 PM
Wow one long conversation, can't believe this is still going on.
Queen Edwards October 23, 2013 at 11:09 PM
LMBO...you already know what it is Herc! I love helping intentionally ignorant people. Some folks just don't know how to SAY NO TO IGNORANCE. It amazes me when some people O.D. on ignorance...just sad, it makes them the biggest fool in the room. And don't let there be more than one fool in the room...the scene turns into a Ignorant Clown Orgy! SMDH!!!
Dan October 24, 2013 at 07:47 AM
say what you may, queen size,but i'll bet a dollar to a donut you have a link card in your fake gucci purse.
Dan October 24, 2013 at 07:48 AM
and i'll bet your old man is out chasing white women,when your not around.
Queen Edwards October 24, 2013 at 12:25 PM
There you go again ethnic assuming my creepy soggy cracker. Sorry to disappoint you, but that's based on income and for people in need. Well, it was fun schooling your ignorance. Have a great day! Toodles!!!
Dan October 24, 2013 at 12:33 PM
you too queen size.
Herc October 24, 2013 at 12:37 PM
Okay you two, you deserve this........JERRY, JERRY, JERRY! You both have a good day! LOL
Dan October 24, 2013 at 12:37 PM
still no mention about your old man chasing white women,queen size.
Dan October 24, 2013 at 12:40 PM
cause thats why he wanted to move to lilly white new lenox,and why do you's move to white neighborhoods ? to drive down home prices ?
sillyrabbittrix October 24, 2013 at 04:33 PM
Dan, I'm so glad that old white farts like you are dying off...us young adults with equality and peace in our minds and hearts are slowly taking over the voting demographic and this world will be a better place for it. Sincerely, Caucasian Who Isn't Racist

I used to get upset by these comment sections emails, but I love the fact that people feel comfortable enough to show their true colors while they are anonymous!
everything October 26, 2013 at 01:12 PM
And as far as Marcus Heath I'd never heard of him prior. How many guys have kill whitey vs. how many guys have some Aryan Nation tattoo. I don't trust ANYBODY with a face tattoo!
