Nationalism is the belief that one’s nation is superior to all others and usually involves a strong identification of a group of individuals organized into a political entity that is defined by the boundaries of a nation. Klu Klux Klan (KKK) nationalism consists of collective entity of individuals that share a similar social paradigm within this nation The Klu Klux Klan has a strong affinity for the southern portion of the United States. Spawned originally after the Confederacy lost the Civil War Klu Klux Klan members organized in an effort to deny African Americans from changing the fundamental doctrines the original United States was founded under. Klu Klux Klan’s nationalism was reactionary and called for a return to a national past by the exclusion of African Americans and foreigners. These Klu Klux Klan (KKK) nationalists oftentimes engaged in terrorist activities against certain ethnic groups in order to protect and preserve their homeland from what they view as intruders.


Nationalism emphasizes collective identity. The KKK are autonomous, united, and express a single national culture, which is an expression of nationalism. Confederate flags, national anthems, and other symbols of national identity are often considered by the Klu Klux Klan to be sacred, as if they were religious rather than political symbols. The KKK takes their nationalism seriously and oftentimes deep emotions towards their beliefs can be aroused. Civic nationalism (also known as liberal nationalism) defines the nation as a related group of people that share political and social aspirations who pride themselves in belonging to the nation. Groups such as the KKK do not necessarily rise out of ethnic similarities but out of shared social and political aspirations.

Some nationalists exclude certain groups such as the KKK with African Americans and foreigners. These Klu Klux Klan nationalists readily seek to deem certain minorities as not truly being a part of the ‘national community’ as they define it. This often incites violence by the KKK against others in order to protect these beliefs, even though their mythical homeland ,the traditional Confederate South, is deemed more important for the national identity than the actual territory occupied by the nation. Some Klan (KKK) members engage in ultranationalism. Ultranationalism is a form of nationalism that expresses intense support for one’s nation, and is often characterized by authoritarinism. These militant acts of the Klu Klux Klan (KKK) through Ultranationalism has the potential to lead to conflict within a state, as well as between states, and in its extreme form has lead to war secession or, in the case of enthnocentrist ultranationalism, genocide. The Klu Klux Klan (KKK) embodies a sense of nationalism that can be dangerous for those excluded by their paradigm of beliefs. It is important to identify potential minorities that may be threatened by nationalism and educate them of the dangers certain nationalist groups may pose. The Klu Klux Klan (KKK) may pose a threat to certain minorities and therefore must be approached with extreme caution if you fall into the excluded subgroup.
