KKK welcomes Irish move to limit citizenship rights

The US white supremacist group the Ku Klux Klan has welcomed the Irish electorate’s decision to approve the Government’s recent citizenship referendum.

In an interview with The Dubliner magazine, the head of the KKK, Ray Larson, praised Justice Minister Michael McDowell and the Irish voters for restricting citizenship according to bloodlines rather than birthplace.

The KKK is a virulently racist group that murdered hundreds of African Americans in a campaign of terrorism that petered out in the 1960s.
