I brought this phenomenon to the attention the list quite some time ago,
but it bears a retelling. I don't like it and fight these bastards
whenever and wherever I am able.
It isn't just the KKK either. There are quite a few of the hate groups
who use a mask of Celtic culture to help inflame the fires of hatred. I
know that Celtic tattoos and jewelry are showing up in ever increasing
numbers in prisons and such. A very serious white supremacist gang who
heavily use such Celtic symbols has sprung up, but their MO is mostly
drug trafficing and such. They won't touch the mainstream.
Most people don't take them seriously, but I don't like the bad name it
