“There is an apocryphal story that goes like this – a volunteer is
thinking about going to Mississippi to participate in the civil rights
movement, and he goes to Jesus, and he says Jesus, I’m going to
Missisisippi…

Jesus says, ‘I’ll go as far as Memphis with you…'”

GREAT LEAKS IN HISTORY
——————————————-
KLAN SECRETS LEAKED TO SUPERMAN RADIO SHOW

http://www.sptimes.com/2004/03/07/Perspective/DIANE_ROBERTS.shtml

“In the late 1940s, [Stetson Kennedy] pretended he was an encyclopedia
salesman named “John Perkins” (a real Perkins, Kennedy’s uncle, had
been a Grand Titan in the klan) and infiltrated an Atlanta [KKK]
klavern. He paid 10 bucks for a klan robe – a “bargain” according to
the “kleagle” who recruited him, what with “the Betsy Ross chapter of
the klan’s ladies’ auxiliary doing all the needlework for free” – swore
to “uphold the principles of White Supremacy and the purity of White
Womanhood,” and observed klan rituals, which were a sort of juvenile
mix of Freemasonry and college fraternity complete with signs,
handshakes and a rule book called the Kloran.

Kennedy funneled information about the “Dumb Klux” to the Georgia
Bureau of Investigation, but often went beyond informer to agent
provocateur. He got in touch with the writers of the popular Superman
radio show. They concocted a battle between the progressive Man of
Steel and the racist forces of the grand dragon. Kennedy gave Superman
the klan’s secret passwords, and before the Invisible Empire knew it,
10-year-olds all over America knew KKK code.

After making it to the rank of “klavalier,” Kennedy took his
“trunkloads” of evidence to Washington to the House Un-American
Activities Committee. He put on his robe and his hood for maximum
effect. The congressmen had him thrown out of the Capitol.”

SUPERMAN A JEW?

“I’m not sure the psychodynamics experienced by American Jewish men
have changed all that much since Superman’s creation by these young
Jewish men. I still see Jewish men trying to prove themselves Tough
Jews, as the title of Paul Breines’ book names them, in all too many
ways: as neo-conservative Jewish men try to demonstrate that they’re
not “bleeding heart weak sisters” as religious fervor or the “Never
Again” slogan are misappropriated by militant West Bank Israeli
settlers originally from Brooklyn…”

“As a matter of fact, Jerry Segal created the superman character after
hearing the Moses-in-the-bullrushes story at Sabbath school. (Think
about it)…”

“Where does the Name Superman. from the germans Ubermanch. Superman.
well leave it to a couple jewish kids to turn it around…”
