An attorney representing people who've been distributing KKK recruitment flyers is telling Virginia police departments to back off.
The fliers first started appearing in a Leesburg neighborhood in October. The "White Power" propaganda was found in baggies with candy at Halloween.
In January and February, more fliers appeared in different neighborhoods throughout Loudoun County.
The amateur-looking literature consists of three small papers filled with hate-filled allegations about Jewish people, black people and the NAACP.
A small square piece has a picture of a KKK person in a white robe and hood with a new interpretation for KKK: KOOK KIDS KLUB. White Pride and White Power appear on either side of the Klansman.
"The Blacks say Black Pride, The Latinos say Brown Pride. There is nothing wrong with us saying White Pride," it states on the paper.
The paper urges the holder to "Join today call the hotline, The Olyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan."
Now, attorney Jason Robb in Arkansas writes that he is "Chief Counsel for the Knights Party Committee" who "engage in literature distribution, including Virginia."
He says he has learned about "recent literature distribution of some type of "KKK" literature took place in Loudoun County, Virginia and the surrounding areas."
He writes that he is "not aware if this particular literature distribution was distributed by my clients" but states that he's "disturbed" by actions taken by local law enforcement.
"It is my hope that the both the sheriffs office as well as the police department are aware of this protected right of individuals under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution to distribute literature in such manner," writes Robb.
The letter, written to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Department, Leesburg Police Department and to Jim Plowman, the Loudoun County Commonwealth's Attorney, is to "ensure that the Constitutionally protected rights that individuals have in distribution of literature associated with The Knights or any other organization are not infringed," states Robb.
WUSA9 left a message with Robb's firm but has not received a response.
The letter concerns Phillip Thompson, Loudoun County chapter president of the NAACP.
"I think they have a right to put out fliers, I think you have to not look at the speech, but who is making the speech, what's their history and what's their intent...at that point, it causes more concern," said Thompson.
When asked how it was different from the NAACP putting out fliers, Thompson responded, "NAACP doesn't have a history of putting people on trees. We don't have a history of running cars in to people. We don't have a history of threatening to kill and actually doing that. Intimidation. We don't tell our members to go into churches and shoot up people."
"If we don't stop it, if we don't stand up collectively as a group of citizens to say we are every color, nation and creed. We stand against hate.Unless we do that, they'll continue to think that they have a home here," said local pastor Michelle C. Thomas.
Phillip Thompson says the attorney's letter worried him that the KKK may be planning more, such a rally similar to the violent and deadly Unite the White rally held in Charlottesville last August.
The KKK fliers have sparked the formation of the organization called Hope not Hate, which is planning an event on March 5. Reformed KKK members are lined up to speak at the event.
