They break laws like crazy and lust, are thrilled to even do Murders! For some reason they do not want to get caught. Dream they may still get away.
They are totally devil followers and have aimed themselves for Hell! The Bible includes that If we die hating even one other person; then we would go to Hell!

The Ku Klux Klan are well known in America for the racist acts that white Americans did to the Black Americans, because they would track down these people and torture them then eventually kill them because the white Americans believed that they were more superior than the black Americans so they did this to try and prove this point. Additionally, they harassed what they called white sympathizers.
On my own behalf its just a bunch of murderous idiots that didn't have anything better to do }=(
A group that was opposed to integration and civil rights for minorities known as the Ku Klux Klan.
The idea of the KKK was to intimidate former slaves to a degree where they would be reluctant to be come viable competition for the whites in the south who up to this time relied on black labour to further their interests. They were a group of frustrated people who had suddenly found themselves in a situation where the kidnapping, abuse, robbing, and raping of a considerable part of their society had become acceptable. Slavery is maintained by fear, and they were hoping to instill fear in the hearts of the former slaves and eventually their offspring in order to maintain some sort of advantage over them that did not involve actually earning the respect they felt was their birthright, by being white.
The original Ku Klux Klan was organized at Pulaski, Tenn., in May, 1866 by ex-Confederate elements to oppose the Reconstruction policies of the radical Republican Congress and to maintain "white supremacy." After the Civil War, Law enforcement and government in many parts of the south was weak to non existent. And keeping in mind the number of emancipated slaves white people became fearful of black revenge and even of an insurrection, vigilante organizations were formed in most of the southern communities such as The Men of Justice, the Pale Faces, the Constitutional Union Guards, the White Brotherhood, and the Order of the White Rose.
From a personal point of view if I had been a slave owner during that time I would not feel very secure especially knowing that slaves outnumbered whites by a considerable number. [Note: even after the deaths from the Civil War were taken into account, Whites outnumbered Blacks in the former Confederacy by over 2:1. However, this was very much subject to local conditions, with rural areas around the former plantations often having Blacks outnumber Whites, while major population centers have very few Blacks at all]
Essentially, the original KKK was form to resist Reconstruction, and return the Old South to as close to the pre-Civil War social order as possible, where Whites dominated and Coloreds served.

Here's proof that you can't stop an urban legend, not even in a court of law.
In 1997, Procter & Gamble filed the most recent in a series of lawsuits against Amway Corporation and several of its distributors for allegedly spreading rumors to the effect that P&G, maker of familiar household products such as Mr. Clean and Tide laundry detergent, is affiliated with the Church of Satan.

I'll divide the answer into several sections
Reconstruction 1st Klan (1865-1877)
1500 estimated by the Tuskegee Institute
1200 blacks 300 whites
100-200 killed in South Carolina
The rest mostly killed during black voting in Louisiana in the 1868 US Presidential Election
The Klan was also partially involved in the Colfax Massacre
Nadir 2nd Klan ( 1915 - 1944)
Klan was frequently involved in lynchings, killed mostly blacks in this era
Murdered Blacks returning from WW1
Killed Leo Frank (Jewish White)
Killed 6 blacks attempting to vote in Orange County Florida
Civil Rights 3rd Klan (1954-1968)
15 people (13 black)
These murders are well known and include, but are not limited to
1963 murder Medgar Evers
1963 16th street baptist church bombing
1964 Mississippi Burning
1965 Viola Luizo Shooting
1966 Vernon Dahmer Killing
Many of these murders were prosecuted ... in the 90s and 2000s
David Duke 4th Klan
1979 Greensboro Massacre 5 killed
1981 Lynching Michael Donald
Klan member electrocuted
Note these are only those killed. Hundreds of thousands of people were injured or intimidated by the Klan
+ Although the Klan hadn't been formed, Nathan Bedford Forrest, leader of the first Klan committed this atrocity
Fort Pillow Massacre 1864 277 blacks
yes, but not in the same sense as during the 60s.
They still have meetings and public rallies. Membership is actually growing.
It doesn't mean anything in English. The name "Ku Klux Klan" is a distortion of the Greek word for circle: kuklos.
Because, it was then when the blacks were starting to get rights.
In response to the myth below stating that the parties switched, the democrat party during the 1960's held about two-thirds of the Senate and House. In numbers they had the majority of votes in the civil Rights bills which passed. However, percentagewise they failed miserably. While some 98% of Republicans voted for the civil rights laws to pass, only a mere 70% of the Democrats voted yes. Strom Thurmond did switch parties but he is the only known one who did. To say that conservatives switched is inaccurate because there is no evidence to support that myth. In actuality it was the Margaret Sanger and Adolf Hitler admirer, and a democrat who started what is today Planned Parenthood and are still strongly supportive of it today. It was the Democrat party who was in favor of social security and welfare benefits and are still in favor of it today. In actuality the parties haven't changed at all. It is still the Democrat party who is responsible for the black genocide and abortion clinics which is still in existence today. While blacks make up approximately 12 to 13% of the US population they make up some 33% of all abortions performed. The democrat party has been very successful in stifling the growth of the black population in the USA. The Democrat party without doubt walk hand-in-hand with the KKK and their primarily goal to oppress blacks and suppress the growth of the black population today and has been a success with the two of them today as they are still one in the same.
More evidence of this can be seen as we observe the programs which encourage the black population to stay down by handing them enough bread crumbs that they will not want to rise up. Before the Democrat (LBJ) party started giving handouts to the black population black entrepreneurship was at an all-time high. This obviously devastated them. On top of that, if a family has a father in the home he they will receive less money. The families are encouraged to stay separate. Even Barack Hussein Obama inadvertently admitted that without a father in the home the child's destiny is hindered greatly. This works perfectly for the Democrat party (the KKK) today.
None. He wasn't in the Klan.
The following article was published in Workers Vanguard No. 722, 29 October 1999. WV is the biweekly newspaper of the Spartacist League/U.S., American section of the ICL.
New Yorkers came out in their thousands on October 23 determined to make sure the KKK didn?t ride in their city. They were mobilized by the call initiated by the Partisan Defense Committee, ?All Out to Stop the KKK on October 23!? Hundreds of working people, students and others joined in distributing 175,000 of the PDC?s mobilizing leaflet in workplaces, campuses and neighborhoods throughout the city.
Thousands came out in defiance of the efforts of the Giuliani administration, its cops and the courts to deny their right to mobilize to stop the Klan. They came out in opposition to appeals by the phony ?friends of labor? in the Democratic Party and self-appointed spokesmen for the black population who preached a ?demonstration for tolerance? for the ?rights? of the KKK. They knew this wasn?t an issue of ?free speech? but of stopping Klan terror and murder. They came out to drive the Klan lynchers off their streets. And that?s exactly what they did. :)
The above answer is totally out of context, as the question is about Klan activities in the 19th century, not the 20th!!!
To answer the question, YES, the KKK was active in the North during the period after the ACW, and the state with the most membership in the North was Indiana, with Ohio running a close second. In NYC the Klan was a annual part of many public parades and festivals, with up to 5,000 men marching and on horseback, in full regalia.
You have to remember that at that time, the prevailing attitude was against blacks, and there were not many Americans who would speak out for equal rights, that came about 100 years later, in the 1960's with the enactment of federal Civil Rights legislation, by President Lyndon Johnson.
In the years proir to 1917 the KKK organized itself against immigrants coming here that were illiterate...............In 1917 congress overrode a veto by Woodrow Wilson and it was inacted that there be a ''literacy test'' that immigrants would have to pass to enter the US.The reason being that the language barriors were exhausting as well as well as the impact it had on the competition of factories bidding for jobs..........Educated immigrants were more desirable as employees but the real reason behind it was that the bids of uneducated employees could be lower because they could be taken advantage of due to their demising situation..........the immigrants were taking Americans jobs and forcing the pay to be low so as it is today..........In 1952 this ''literacy test'' was abolished and now here we are losing jobs and factories...........not due to the government but because of the REMOVAL of this ACT OF CONGRESS...not everything the KKK has done has been objectionable........
It's called xenophobia, which, as the 'phobia' suffix suggests, is an irrational fear and hatred of something or someone. In the case of the KKK it's fear and hatred of strangers, foreigners, or - as you say - those not like themselves.
As with all phobia sufferers, xenophobics are easily frightened by anything relating to their phobia. Many organizations similar to the KKK are led by people who aren't particularly xenophobic at all, but are greedy for power and wealth; this is sometimes achieved by gathering a following which is easily led.
An added inducement for those attracted to the KKK is the 'secret society' aspect, which gives many a feeling of belonging to something special, together with the feeling of superiority which all secret organizations induce in their followers. This appeals hugely to the basic feelings of inferiority which those such as xenophobics work so hard to conceal.
One only has to read some of the claims made by such organizations to see they are carefully-worded in order to attract exactly the type of people who truly want to believe such claims and won't question too closely their veracity, or ask for hard facts and real proof.
You'll find doubters and questioners and those who expect logic and verifiable truth in the information they are given are not welcome in organizations such as the KKK.
The KKK was a hate group.
It was formed by a bunch of men who hated Jewish people and African Americans. Men would burn crosses and stick them into front yards of Jewish people's houses and African American people's houses and terrorize lots of people.
Abolitionists wanted to abolish slavery.
To make black southerners return to be laborers and to get federal troops out of southern states were goals of the KKK.
