An Insane Brochure For The Ku Klux Klan Texas Summer Camp

Via the Duke University Libraries collection, in the 1920s in Rockport, TX, the Ku Klux Klan offered a beachfront getaway resort dubbed the Kool Koast Kamp, hosted by “the Grand Dragon of the Realm of Texas,” which offered “family recreation under high-class moral conditions” for both Klansmen and their non-Klansmen friends, who were encouraged to attend for recruiting purposes.

The Rockport beach is “shaded for complexion protection,” the camp guide explains, promising “the Healthiest road to the Koolest Summer”. No word is given on what would become of any nonwhites that showed up with towels and beach umbrella in tow.

    Little ironic, all these white supremecists out there tanning themselves. Must be self-hatred.
    Must be. What’s not to hate? I hate them.

      Tanning themselves? You must have overread the part where it assures its paranoid readers: “Shaded beach for complexion protection. Shades over water, over pier. Shades everywhere”.

    In God’s name, what the %^&* is a Concrete Lizzie?

      Primitive dildo. A bit rough on the labia, but harder than any husband who’d send his wife to such a place is likely to get.

      A corporeal manifestation of their Reptilian Overlord?

    I think you have to read between the lines where the brochure says: “The Fiery Cross guards you at nights and an officer of the law, with the same Christian sentiment, guards carefully all portals.

    Restful. No work whatsoever, No drudgery.

    I always knew that white supremacists were lazy, work-shy scum.

    Put a bug in Daddy’s ear and hug him tight. He will let you come.

    Not to mention inbred.

    Great heavens, Joffrey. A concrete Lizzy, ripe for the taking, you say? Fire up the jalopey and we’ll sally forth, post haste.

    the irony being that the Kool Koast Kamp therein described
    is now called Der Homeland of the Free
    only now the Darkies are imprisoned
    instead of merely being excluded from white zones

    Think this is a fake.. this looks an awful lot like that “vintage whorehouse brochure” a few weeks ago that was (quite obviously) a fake.
