Praise for Ten Dollars to Hate

“Really an incredible read.”

– Julie Mason, host of The Press Pool show on SiriusXM’s POTUS Politics channel (124)

“The Second Ku Klux Klan needed stopping, and the brave, successful prosecution by Dan Moody was flawless. The heart-stopping narrative by Patricia Bernstein is a winner.”

— Morris Dees, Cofounder of the Southern Poverty Law Center

“A chilling story of how the KKK was on the march across the US and how Dan Moody, a Texas district attorney, fought the Klan – the most violent political organization in our history – brought them to justice, and broke their stronghold on Texas’ power structure. Patricia Bernstein’s dramatic book presents Dan Moody, Texas’ youngest governor, as a textbook study in political courage, demonstrating how eternal vigilance is still our safeguard against today’s threats from neo-Nazi and other ‘white supremacy’ movements!”

— Mark White, Former Governor of Texas

“Patricia Bernstein’s account of the Klan of a hundred years ago is a clarion call for vigilance today against all forms of bigotry, which victimizes those who are not considered ‘100% American’ because of their race, nationality, language, or religion. The book deserves a large readership, especially for those who are unfamiliar with the history of the Klan and their pernicious bigotry. It is also a valuable source for the many who have forgotten the disastrous influence of the Klan on American society and the fear and brutality it caused its many victims.”

— Joseph A. Fiorenza, Archbishop Emeritus of Galveston-Houston

“This book is an important examination of a dark episode in American history. It tells the story of how select individuals had the courage to stand up and oppose popular extremism – from a diminutive mother home alone with her children to a brave lawyer, who used the legal system against those acting outside the law. It reminds all of us to stand up for our convictions.”

— Fred Zeidman, Chairman Emeritus of the board, US Holocaust Museum
