Book details Klan’s rebirth in 1920s Indiana | #childpredator | #kidsaftey | #childsaftey

A chilling new book describes how ordinary Hoosiers embraced the Ku Klux Klan and its message of hate when the terrorist group was reborn in Indiana in the 1920s.

“Fever in the Heartland” by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Timothy Egan tells how an amoral drifter and sexual predator named D.C. Stephenson used Protestant ministers to recruit members and make the Indiana Klan the largest of any state – North or South – in the nation.  

“In no other state of the union, not even Texas, is the domination of the Ku Klux Klan so absolute as it is in Indiana,” writes Egan, citing a story published by The New York Times on Nov. 7, 1923, also saying “opposition is silent.”  Within a few years, the Klan had infiltrated police departments, city halls, the state legislature and the judiciary, and Stephenson had his eyes on the White House.
