    And even more like Don the Con --- he can't take responsibility for his fuckup.
    It follows him around like a puppy.

    It is pretty funny that Whitehall likes to throw out KKK charges- while is a big fanboy and apologist for the Confederate Slave owning states.

    Guess which party was the last to have senator who was a member of the KKK. Coolidge didn't denounce the Klan? Is that the best you can do? FDR had an ace in the hole with his appointment of the former KKK member. Justice Black bailed him out of the messy executive order that authorized the arrest of American citizens without due process. LBJ was so crooked that the media even made jokes about how many dead guys it took to elect him but he went against his own party with the Civil Rights act and it took republican pressure to get it passed. If you checked the wallets of the KKK operatives who were threatening and intimidating (and killing?) Black voters you would have found 100% democrat party registration.

    :lol: The Klan has never required a political party. What it did require was that you be white, Chrisitan, specifically Protestant Christian, native-born and believe in the superiority of the white race. Nothing about politics. KKK preached "100% Americanism" but it didn't care how you got there politically.

    I know this is hard for you False Dichotomists to understand but not everything in the world is made up of the two elements "Democrat" and "Republican". Actually most people are neither.

    So I take it you're wimping out on all of those questions I just put to you. Not that that's a surprise.

    You have it ass-backwards.. The Klan didn't have the sense or the political stability to engage in political activity. It was a case of a racist political party using the muscle of the KKK to achieve power. It worked for democrats until the 60's when the democrat party decided to use Black anger instead of fighting it. Jane Fonda and John Kerry tried to combine the Black street anger promoted by the liberal media with a crazy sort of anti-war propaganda alleged Veteran instability into the "winter soldiers" propaganda movement and ...presto...democrats flipped their image. Thanks to the liberal media the democrat party would become the party of anarchy and the poor KKK was left behind.

    Why do you make up things about what other people think?

    Bad enough you’re a liar.

    It didn't engage in political activity for most of its existence, but it did at the peak of its power in the 1920s. And as already noted in that time it supported and got elected Owen Brewster in Maine (Republican), Ed Jackson in Indiana (Republican), Rice Means in Colorado (Republican), George Luis Baker in Oregon (Republican), Ben Paulen in Kansas (Republican) and Clarence Morely in Colorado (not only a Republican but an active Klan member). And it worked against Jack Walton in Oklahoma (Democrat), Oscar Underwood in Alabama (Democrat), Huey Long in Louisiana (Democrat), Al Smith nationally (Democrat) and Stetson Kennedy in Florida (Democrat) who famously infiltrated the Klan and wrote an exposé and later developed a radio series to discredit the Klan in the most popular broadcast media program of the time (Superman).

    All of that was WAY before the 1960s.

    You still have no answer for any of that.

    Much like your post. A lot of words put together in sentences, but little more.

    The klan was southern conservatives. True they were mostly Democrat back then, but today, they’re mostly Republican.

    Lol, you need to learn some history my friend. It is well known how the parties switched places. 1924 was almost a century ago.
