June 11, 2021 The Warriors' affiliate Talkin' Smack has successfully thrown a monkey wrench into the Ku Klux Klan's plans to gather for a funeral in Indiana.
The Church of the Ku Klux Klan's Grand Emperor Railton D. Loy, 83, of Mishawaka, Indiana, passed away Tuesday, June 8th. As his son Richard Loy and nephew David Eric Myers, both klansmen, arranged funeral services, they began inviting white nationalists from around the country to attend.
Nephew David Eric Myers uses the klan name Eric Orion on Vkontakte, which is a Russian social media site that white nationalists and terrorists often use after being driven off of Facebook and Twitter. There Myers, a known drug trafficker and thief with a long prison record, has been keeping the KKK informed about Loy's health issues and passing. It's there our operatives spotted the open invitation to the funeral. [Note: The Warriors does not directly link to the VK accounts, due to their violent, graphic, and racist nature.]
Son Richard Loy, a grand dragon, is known mainly within the KKK for a comedy of errors rally in 2002. The klan was gathered for a Christmas unity function at his Osceola, Indiana farm, when their best laid plans went South. First, they tried to feed a barely cooked pig to a gathering which included a number of klansmen into Christian Identity. They don't eat pork. Then as reported by the Southern Poverty Law Center, "After being presented with a riot shield that was alleged to be bulletproof, Loy had apparently decided to put the matter to a test, firing a round into the shield at close range. Unsurprisingly, the bullet ricocheted off the shield — which stood up to the tryout admirably — and hit Loy in mouth. Several Klansmen noted privately that the elder Loy should be glad his son wasn't told the shield was bombproof."
Their attempts at burning a swastika and a cross also went awry.
Operatives at Smack began contacting the funeral home and The Sanctuary of Osceola - the church holding the services - to warn them of the potential dangers involved in a gathering of extremists and the potential for a counter demonstration. This led to the church to retract their sanctuary's use for the klan leader's services. Without referencing Loy, who is known as Ray Larsen within the KKK, they now state on their Facebook page, "There will be no funeral services at the Sanctuary this coming Monday. Palmer funeral home will be retracting and rescheduling that particular funeral. thanks to all for your understanding "
It should be noted that neither the funeral home nor the church were aware of Loy's KKK connections and were being misled by family members, who neglected to mention they'd be conducting a klan funeral and sneaking in klan messages into the obituary, while inviting extremists from around the nation to attend.
The obituary at the funeral home no longer mentions the church or graveyard and has changed to say, "Palmer Funeral Homes-River Park Chapel is assisting the family with arrangements."
Having custody of the notorious racist's corpse binds the Palmer Funeral Homes to Indiana laws, so we're holding them harmless for their inability to act as the church has. Clearly, Smack's suggestion that they toss the body into a dumpster and set it on fire." can't be followed.
As the KKK attempt to make new plans, it's clear that whatever they come up with cannot be made public. This will result in greatly disrupting any gathering they want to arrange.
Last week, Loy fell in his home resulting in a broken neck, which ultimately led to his death.
In Loy's obituary, it steers clear of any affiliation with the KKK. However, they do drop O.R.I.O.N. into his biography. That is an acronym for Our Race Is Our Nation. As mentioned previously, Loy's nephew uses the klan name of Eric Orion.
The amended obituary now excludes the KKK's O.R.I.O.N., which came just after "...he will be deeply missed by his family and friends."
Railton D. Loy, 83, of Mishawaka passed away Tuesday, June 8, in the year of our Lord 2021, at the Center for Hospice Care. He was born April 14, 1938, in Andersonville, TN to the late Raymond and Lois (Nelund) Loy. On August 3, 1994, in Sevierville, TN, Railton married Barbara L. (White) Loy, who preceded him in death on February 19, 2008.
Railton is survived by his son, Richard Loy; sister, Susan Sedam; nephew, Steven Loy-Croaston; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In addition to his wife and parents, Railton is preceded in death by his brother, Ernie Loy; and sister, Ruth Collins.
Railton was a conductor with the Conrail Railroad until he retired in 1998. He served as president of the Local 1620 United Transportation Union. Railton was a member of the Sons of the Confederate Veterans and the American Legion Post 50. He was greatly loved and will be deeply missed by his family and friends. [KKK term O.R.I.O.N. now omitted by the funeral home.]
Palmer Funeral Homes-River Park Chapel is assisting the family with arrangements.
In 2011, the Southern Poverty Law Center reported that Loy was being celebrated for his fifty years in service to the Ku Klux Klan. After sixty years, that service has now ended...along with his planned funeral service.
The SPLC report states, "Loy, who uses the alias of Ray Larsen, says he joined a Klan group in Georgia in 1960, moved on to the United Klans of America in 1961, and then took 200 UKA members into the National Knights in 1973. On the death of leader James Venable in 1993, Loy ascended to national leader, a post he has held ever since. The recent festivities were marked with a sheet cake (“KKK: Happy 50th Anniversary Grand Wizard”), the presentation of a purple robe especially prepared for the occasion by an unnamed “Grand Dragoness,” and, naturally, a cross burning.
"The National Knights is the nation’s third largest Klan group, with 22 chapters in 20 states, but it has become an object of ridicule among many white supremacists for legendary antics like failing to find members’ cars after a rally, resulting in them being pelted by counter-protesters. Still, Loy’s bedazzled followers praised him on the group’s website in effusive if doubtful terms, saying he had “raise[d] the status of the Klan beyond what many could ever dream of.”
Upon discovering any future attempts at a funeral, The Warriors has arranged for local surveillance in order to identify parties, obtain license plate numbers, and so forth. We'll, also, be informing local law enforcement of what's happening and who may be paying their town a visit.
