Mother and Son: Former KKK Leader and his Mother indicted after Alabama Cross Burning

28-year-old Steven Joshua Dinkle, alleged “former Exalted Cyclops” leader of the Ku Klux Klan and his mother have both been arrested and are facing federal charges relating to a 2009 cross burning in a predominantly African-American neighborhood in Ozark, Ala.

Isn’t that sweet – Mom and son going out together for cross burnings. That sort of warms you up inside, doesn’t it?

Dinkle was arrested Wednesday in Mississippi for allegedly orchestrating the cross burning and obstructing the investigation.














Talking Points Memo reports:

Dinkle was described by the DOJ as having previously held the “Exalted Cyclops” title in an Ozark, Ala. chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. Dinkle “conspired with another person to burn a cross in an African-American neighborhood to threaten and intimidate residents of that neighborhood and thereby interfere with their federally protected housing rights” on May 8, 2009, the Justice Department alleges.

“Dinkle allegedly constructed a six-foot cross, wrapping jeans and a towel around it. He and his co-conspirator drove the cross to an African-American community near Johntown Road in Ozark where Dinkle poured fuel on the cross, erected it in the ground and set it on fire,” the DOJ press release said. “The indictment further contends that Dinkle obstructed justice by lying to local investigators in 2009, and federal investigators in 2012. Dinkle claimed he had withdrawn from the KKK months before the cross burning, provided a false alibi and denied knowing a person who was, in fact, his superior in the KKK.”

The DOJ describes Dinkle’s mother, Pamela Morris, as “the former secretary of the KKK chapter” and she arrested on Nov. 21 and charged with committing perjury before the grand jury investigating the cross burning.















According to the indictment, ¬†federal prosecutors said Morris “knowingly made false material declarations when she denied being involved in the Ku Klux Klan” as well as denying her son’s KKK involvement.

TPM reports, According to the DOJ, Dinkle was charged on five counts in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama including; “one count of conspiracy to violate housing rights, one count of criminal interference with the right to fair housing, one count of using fire to commit a federal felony and two counts of obstruction of justice.” As of this writing, documents from Dinkle’s case were not posted on the court’s website and the federal prosecutor’s office was unable to provide them.”

His Facebook page is inadvertently comedy gold.

Dinkle comments on a KKK rally writing, “bout fucking time someone talks with a little since.” [sic]

He links numerous times to a speed dating service. I guess it’s hard to find a good Nazi woman these days. One of his Facebook friends says he’s a ‘soldier at God updates.’

    Rather than being fearful, my reaction is to ridicule, as I think that this pair is pathetic.

  • neworleans878

    Awwww…isn’t that adorable? White trash redneck racist family bonding….

    Oh look, he’s showing us his IQ.

    yee-haw! your average fox news viewer. The pride of Alabama i’m sure.

  • Sam

    Its ok for blacks to kill elderly whites or rape white woman but don’t you dare show a pro-white stance. That will get you jail time. Revolution really is the only answer. Comments are showing less IQ than his finger.

    • George Nestico

      SMH Really you show me one black that isn’t in jail for raping, or behind bars for murder , I sure can show you many many whites that walk away, republican Congressman gets busted for cocaine he gets a years probation, young black man with the same amount first offense, first arrest ever gets 20 years, that’s the problem with you brain cell dead racists, you believe what other racists tell you, but then again you have no choice having just made it out of the third grade so you lack the intelligence to do some research, before you head out to the barn to tend to you flock be sure to wear a condom.

      Bro, say good bye. You’re not welcome here.

      Sam, you’re a special kind of stupid.

    • motorfingaz

      Dag, you sure are dumb

    • Elise

      No! It’s not okay for blacks to do that and they know better. Most blacks that cry racism are crazy and it’s a poor excuse to commit crime. And it’s not okay for whites to hate blacks in general, their are some nice black people. Some people are just rapist and have excuses to their evil deeds.

      It isn’t okay for anyone to kill anyone! The pro-white stance is the real problem.

  • fratdawgg23

    My favorite on his FB page is his comment “white power” and a link titled “Church of the National Knights of the Ku Klux Klan”… which links to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s page listing the “Church” as a known hate group. LoL

    These charges might get them kicked out of the trailer park for good.

    Hate is such a waste of energy.

  • Sapphire Possible

    His name is Dinkle. That’s really why he’s mad.
