Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach seems to like the theory that immigration activists who protested in front of his home last weekend were using intimidation tactics originally perfected by the Klu Klux Klan. After evoking the Second Amendment on Monday, Kobach told Glenn Beck on Tuesday that members of Sunflower Community Action were just like the KKK.
Now Kobach is taking his KKK theory back to Kansas, as this local news report shows.
During the protest, demonstrators dropped of shoes on his porch, as a way to symbolize “fatherless families,” who lost a father due to deportations.
Kobach compared the protest to a Ku Klux Klan-style of intimidation. During his radio appearance, he compared the two because of how the group would try to scare people at their homes.
“I just thank God I wasn’t there with my kids,” Kobach said. “My children would have been terrified to see all these people — this mob swarming up to our house and shouting things through their megaphones about their daddy.”
Kobach said his children would have perceived the protest as a threat.
There have been no arrests; however, Kobach is asking the county to look into the case. Police have also increased patrols in his neighborhood.
Meanwhile, Kobach is still trying to push his controversial views on immigration, including a new Kansas statute requiring “proof of citizenship before voting in an election for the first time.” Kind of like the same law that the U.S. Supreme Court struck down recently. Here is Kobach in a 50-minute immigration debate on Kansas public radio. He is uses the infamous Heritage Foundation report as his main source. And he still continues to use “illegal aliens.”
