A group of head Tory Brexiteers have been labelled Grand Wizards… but by who?
In the years following the Reconstruction era formation of the KKK, national leaders of this racist organisation were styled as Grands Wizard. Later, the organization would be described as the “the domestic terrorist arm of the Democratic Party” and its latter day members have found fans in both Bill and Hillary Clinton. Even in a media landscape dominated by the wizard Harry Potter and his kooky creator JK Rowling, the specific term ‘Grand Wizard’ means ‘racist.’
Further adding to the confusion, these outlets seem to have come to a completely different conclusion to everyone else.
This is a potentially very inflammatory and divisive "meme" for the media to be spreading.
