The Ku Klux Klan was much different in Texas than the way it is usually depicted in the MSM. My Granddad used to laugh about the Klan, particularly the habit of going out at night wearing bedsheets. He told me that the main activity of the Klan was enforcing morals. He recounted the story of a guy who didn't care for his wife very well, particularly in not providing firewood to keep her warm. The Klan put a warning note on the guy's front door. My Granddad said he thought the guy was going to chop down the forest as he piled up firewood at his house. Here is an article about that time.
