Presentation from the Friendly House by David Horowitz who explores the ethnocentric and populist appeal of the 1920s Ku Klan Klan, a movement focusing on the perceived threat of recent immigrants. The discussion includes an analysis of the rhetoric of Klan leader Hiram Wesley Evans who pictured Protestant nationalists as helpless before the onslaught of immigrants. Horowitz has taught U. S. Cultural and Political History at Portland State University since 1968. He has many publications. He is the author of “Inside the Klavern: The Secret History of the Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s.”
