Ilia Calderón, a reporter for Univision, faced horrendous threats and insults from KKK leader Christian Barker and his wife Amanda while interviewing them on live television.
Barker insinuiated that he woukd "burn" her and used racial slurs in the conversation.
Baker currently serves as the imperial wizard for the of the Loyal White Knights of the KKK in Pelham, North Carolina, according to The Root. Baker was told ahead of time that the conversation would be held with a Hispanic woman of color.
The conversation, which was heated almost immediately, took a violent turn when Baker stated that he was going to "chase you out of here.”
“Are you going to chase me out of here?” Calderón replied.
“No, we’re going to burn you out... We killed 6 million Jews the last time. Eleven million [immigrants] is nothing,” he said.
After Calderón noted that she may be the first black woman to have ever stepped foot on Baker's property, Baker said, “To me you’re a n*****. That’s it. That’s it to me.”
As intensity mounted, the couple still contradictorily claimed that they "don't hate anyone."
"Are you racist?" Calderón asks pointedly.
"No. I think everybody deserves the right to live," Baker replies.
The intense videos have gone viral, each garnering hundreds of thousands of views.
After the viral segments concluded, Calderón watched as the Bakers were joined by fellow KKK members and burned a cross.
“I don’t hate that she died, because she’s a Communist," said Baker elsewhere of Heather Heyer, the demonstrator who was killed by a domestic terrorist during the Unite The Right events at Charlottesville earlier this month, which the Bakers also attended.
“I represent the things that they hate: I am black, I am Hispanic, I am an immigrant,” Calderón later said, reflecting on the harrowing experience.
