The appeal seeks to make membership in the group, which was founded as a paramilitary organization in the south after the Civil War, illegal.

“The Ku Klux Klan is a white supremacist hate group with historic background of terrorism, including countless physical assaults and murders,” the petition reads.

“Hate should not be a way to bring communities together, nor should it be allowed or tolerated,” it adds.

The petition had nearly 180,000 signatures as of Tuesday afternoon and has a goal of 200,000.

A second petition asking that the group be designated a terrorist organization has garnered more than 100,000 signatures on

“The KKK is a terrorist organization protected by the first amendment. It is a travesty to allow such an organization to function under the law,” the description of the petition reads.

“Abolish this hateful group that is carrying on a history of abuse, racism, and murder. Abolish the KKK,” it adds.
