Local KKK Chapter Calls Hallmark Greeting Cards "Sickening Beyond Belief"

Posted By on Thu, Jan 15, 2009 at 1:27 PM

In a move that's sure to cost Hallmark tens of dollars, members of the Ku Klux Klan are asking white Americans to boycott all purchases from the greeting card company.

A press release yesterday from the Belleville, Illinois, chapter of the KKK, states that Hallmark is "trying to corrupt the morality of Americans by offering gay/lesbian wedding and greeting cards."

"This is sickening beyond belief...We white Americans are to BOYCOTT Hallmark cards until they take the cards off the shelf."
Okee dokee.  But tell me, are Klansmen really in the habit of sending any greeting cards, straight or otherwise?
