My undertanding of this song was always that his girlfriend had run off and left him and he was just making excuses, trying to convince himself that there was some other reason why she hadn't come back.

Guiff you got some of it right lol... It is about his girlfriend who took off but the KKK referEnce is towards Johnny Ramone. Cuz when joey and his g/f broke up Johnny started seeing her and He's a hardcore Right winger republican which explains the KK reference.
