This week PayPal suspended the donation account of the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
The “hotline” number shared on the website, which has a 336 area code, has been traced to an Eden, NC number that has for years been associated with Klan activity.
The number is still active, with a recording telling those who call “If you’re white and proud, join the crowd” and inviting them to leave contact information.
The Loyal White Knights is the same organization whose armed members demonstrated in Hillsborough late last month, leading to large scale counter-protests.
The number is the same one displayed on the “Help make America great again” banner held by Klan members, as captured by photographer Daniel Hosterman at the demonstration.
Though the Orange County Sheriff’s Office announced its intention to arrest some of the demonstrators for carrying firearms in a political demonstration there had been, as of Thursday of this week, no arrests.
