One unwavering eye

"The Exalted Cyclops reports to a Grand Giant; a Grand Dragon; and the Grand Wizard. Below the Cyclops on the org chart were the Grand Magi, the Grand Monk, the Grand Exchequer, the Grand Turk, and, finally, the rank-and-file members known as Ghouls or Knights. (Many of these titles have changed over time, and most of the sub-Cyclops ranks have been eliminated.) The Exalted Cyclops' responsibilities include presiding over meetings, initiating new members, and appointing Councils of Centaurs to try and punish wayward Ghouls." [some minor redactions]

What am I talking about? No, it's not how non-humans organise against adventurers in D&D but the org chart for the KKK, according to this article in Slate.

Yeah, when I was a kid and first read about that I thought, "well, those guys are real jerks, but they sure know how to set up a secret society!" I want to have bad-ass titles like that.

I remember thinking, years back, that they sounded like demented roleplaying gamers...

As opposed to non-demented rolepalying gamers.

They are now calling themselves America's Oldest Civil Rights Organization. Unbelievable.

"Unbelievable"

Not at all. We in the UK have a political party that calls itself the 'Labour Party' allegedly representing the labour movement.
