‘KKK-Type of Intimidation’: Kansas Sec. of State Targeted by Mob

Erica Ritz, The Blaze, June 18, 2013

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R) compared the tactics used by hundreds of protesters who marched on his home over the weekend to “KKK-type of intimidation” on the Glenn Beck radio program Tuesday.

Targeted for his work on combating illegal immigration, Kobach has certainly faced opposition in the past, but it has always been in public locations. Now, he says, “the left has crossed a line” by surrounding his home.

Kobach said he is asking prosecutors to look into how the mob may have violated civil rights laws, explaining: “They’re called the Klan Laws…a set of laws that say you cannot intimidate an official by trespassing on his property threatening violence, [and] you cannot intimidate an individual by threatening violence so that they don’t vote or don’t exercise their civil rights.”

After Beck noted that Martin Luther King, Jr. faced similar intimidation tactics, Kobach agreed: “This is exactly — they’re just not wearing white cloaks — but this is exactly KKK-type of intimidation.”


He continued: “Let’s think about what the…brazenness of what the members of this mob are doing. The ones who are illegal aliens—they’re already saying let’s break the law and enter the United States illegally. Then let’s trespass on this elected official’s property, and there are a number of other state crimes…that could also apply. And then let’s demand amnesty…!”

At this point, Kobach said he is proceeding “full-steam ahead” in his work to combat illegal immigration, though he will be forced to “beef up” security for his family.

  • Water hoses, tear gas. They do wonders. The NAACP isn’t going to do anything about a bunch of white liberals getting a hose bath.

    • Guns. Guns, guns, bayonets and more guns.

      The Mestizo KKK– The Freeloading Facista Flan. Squat monsters, unite! They’re going to start burning piñatas in front of Kobach’s house while blaring tejano music from their barrio blasters. Tejano music is a crime in itself….I hope that Kobach legally nails these oompa loompas to the wall!

  • I’ve noticed that Glenn Beck has been talking a lot about immigration over the past week or so. He’s another one, previously less than sane and teetering on the brink of absolute crackpottery, who just might have walked away from the ledge.

    • John Smith

      Their ultimate aim is to disarm the home owner and use the force of government to make him take in illegal aliens which, of course, would result in them running him out of his home so they could then take ownership of it. That’s how far the liberals are willing to go.

    • The__Bobster

      Yes, he had Ann Coulter on his show and she proceeded to utterly trash the traitorous Gang of 8.

  • ncpride

    Good for him. It’s past time someone stood up to these illegal invaders and turned the tables on them. They have indeed crossed a line by trying to intimidate this man in his own home……the very same illegals we are told are living in the ‘shadows’…..what nonsense. They have become so smug and arrogant in their demands, it’ll be pure entertainment watching them get a smack down for just once…

    • Yep, publicly attempting to intimidate and coerce state officials, with an eye towards getting TV news coverage, both local and national, showcases the horror of living in the shadows!

    • Melanie

      Illegal aliens met with Hussein in the Oval Office-that’s really “living in the shadows”, right?

  • borogirl54

    From what I understand, it took about 15 minutes for the police to show up.

    • If I called 911 and said I was going to kill demonstrators at my house, I bet I could get every one of them before CSPD arrived. It would take about three minutes to get 30 running people with my claymore if they didn’t scatter. I’d rather hang for fifty as hang for one, so the next 49 would be free.

      You only have to pay for the first one; after that, they’re all free.

    • The__Bobster

      If he knew this was coming, he should’ve had a dozen ICE trucks lined up. But of course ICE doesn’t arrest illegals anymore. They go after American sex criminals instead.

    • MartelC

      it takes less time for UK police to arrest someone who tweets that maybe, just possibly muslims don’t blend into British society well.

    Bleck and his ass-kissing of the commie, womanizing plagiarist make me want to drive the porcelain bus. MLK’s stunts were also staged in conjunction with coverage from the NY Slimes.

    Did he forget to mention the Bantu Founding Fathers?

    • Romulus

      Im embarassed of his slobbering BJ rhetoric over king. What a fraud he was. Sleeps with a white hooker the day before his…. Passing. Plagiarist, and photo-op expert.

    • redfeathers

      Do you think Beck and Coulter really worship MLK or are they being pc when it comes to blacks? Good for Ann that she’s now a “single issue voter” on immigration, but I’m tired of her nonsense about blacks being social conservatives.

    • Beck sucks. He’s a two-faced shill who will talk the talk until it matters (as in during the run-up to an important election) then do his best to wreck support for candidates who might actually do something. We all know this.

  • GB101

    Is there a video showing what happened at the man’s house?

    • sbuffalonative


      When the left stages a ‘protest’ or rally, they carry cameras and point them at those trying to maintain order. They later use this to claim brutality.

      WE need to be point our cameras at them.

      If you’re going to a rally, your own or the opposition, bring a camera or a smartphone.

      • GB101

        I did find a video. The demonstration was not violent or close to it, or at least the part that was on the video. No doubt, however, that they were trespassing. They were in the man’s yard and on his front porch. Out of the shadows, definitely, and on the man’s private property.

        It would have been interesting to see what would have happened had he been home and had told them to leave.

    June 13, 2013:

    Rep. Steve King told Breitbart News that illegal immigrants attempted to take over his Washington, DC office on Thursday. ‘They openly defy our laws,’ Rep. King exclusively told Breitbart News. ‘It’s the most brazen lobbying I’ve seen since I entered Congress.’

    June 16, 2013:

    Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is calling for a criminal investigation after a huge mob of illegal alien supporters surrounded his private home Saturday and held a rally on his front porch.

    Yeah, those illegals are sure hiding in the shadows.

    This is illegal aliens, in our faces, telling us what it’s gonna be like…


    • Just doing the criminal trespass, felony menacing and mob intimidation that Americans won’t do anymore.

      I get 6100 FPS on full-auto with the coilgun I built. The real problem is relaxation of the field inside the steel flechettes. I’d have hosed them through my front door, aiming down from my loft to as to use the lawn as my backstop. The door is 27 years old and faces south, so the wood is exposed to a lot of sun as well as snow and rain; it needs replacement anyway.

    The third world beyond our southern border declared war on us years ago, and our government is a willing accomplice. The worst enemy we have is from within.

  • PouponMarks

    It is more basic than these arcane legalistic poontrains. You are on private property, trespassing. I warn you to leave, as you are violating my rights, property, and privacy. You do not leave. I fire warning shots, and announce next shots will be to kill. You do not respond. I shoot and kill you as an invader, with malice, just as a home invasion. You were warned, and contrarily chose your fate.

  • joemcgee

    I’m fine with this. Let it all begin. One round, one hit

  • MartelC

    Oh come on, Holder and the left had made it clear – these laws are not made to protect their enemies.

    In europe maria le pen is being prosecuted ex post facto, the left (which is pretty much the global elite) is openly using violence and intimidation and its only going to get worse.

  • Why is Beck’s studio floor festooned with a Union Jack? Is he in the UK?

  • Home invasions, a la South Africa, are next. Boy, what a great idea, this amnesty…

    • A Mexican flag in the picture (upper center left) and signs in Spanish (two, center far right) tell us all we need to know about how “American” they want to be.

  • I forgot swords.

  • I think it needs a more martial drumming beat.

  • According to US Attorney General Eric Holder, “White people do not have civil rights”.

  • It can, but this will never happen.

  • I disagree; someone’s home is their own, just for them, their family and trusted friends.

  • Lop_Eared_Galoot

    You’re never going to get anywhere supporting politicians, even those whose civil and property rights infringement you sympathize with. Because they are tilting at windmills as a psychological compulsive (power seeking through power sharing = liberalist) condition with no intent of SAYING THE WORDS THAT COUNT: “We Want A White Nation State For Ourselves And Our Descendants Alone.”

    Which would make the struggle actually worth fighting for rather than merely an extended, negotiated, surrender of our genetics as our futures.

    As a pragmatic alternative may I sugggest: Find a group of fellow whites you know you can trust with your beliefs because theirs are the same, get together and pool incomes to buy off debt, _quickly_ from a common geographic center.

    Using networking to quietly expand your economic and real estate base to include other groups with like-minds as wills to conserve assets and income through a shared system of skillset services trades, off the books.

    Lawyers, Doctors, Carpenters, Plumbers, Electricians, Auto Mechanics and _Farmers_. These are the people you want available to trade favors with. By all means, carpool and start private service companies if you can build them fast enough around your own as your friend’s abilities.

    And stick together as your own private hedge fund.

    Buy legal weapons, buy range time to learn their proper use, buy drygoods, buy water purification and storage, buy fuel, buy a place far outside the city, buy farm equipment and seed, if you can.

    The Hispanics in my state do this (San Luis Valley) and we criticize them for keeping it in the family as a deliberate primitivism.

    The Jews have done this for -ages- and we envy them their wealth as survival ethos while living secure as island populations in sometimes very hostile societies.

    Blacks do this because it enables pack hunting.
    We should do this because it allows insularity in a world where we are the racial minority.

    We are terrified of adopting our enemies best habits as ‘racist’ acknowledgment that our economics driven golden age is coming to an end and we may soon be back in the 19th century or worse.
    But it will happen anyway. So fearing it makes no sense.

    Whites will, sooner or later, have to leave this country to retain their nationality.

    But to get there from here will require navigating some very dark and turbulent waters.

    Those who survive will be those who, like Noah, get it together with people they can trust, before things get bad.

    And keep it together as a mass population with the saved resources to make it out to a white ethno state when the moment comes to say those words I mentioned.

  • That is just about the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard all week. A private home is a private home. Your problem is obvious.


    As you can see the illegal aliens are terrified and hiding in the shadows never sure when they’re going to be grabbed up and boot kicked back to the land of which they already sucked dry. Poor illegals, can’t even surround top state Government official’s homes threatening his family without being terrified that ICE might swoop in and kidnap them from the “shadows” cast by the Secretary of States home as they surround it.
