    Yeah, it was way before the 1960's. You might find a KKK affiliated organization supporting a Maine republican or an Oregon politician or a hundred democrats but a political endorsement in the 1920's didn't translate to political victory. It was just an endorsement...or not. Democrats used the KKK for political muscle in the 40's and 50's and up until the 60's when the democrat party decided to use Black hatred for political anarchy. LBJ paid them back with the ironically named "great society" and Black families turned into wards of the state.

    LBJ? You mean the guy who had the Klan burn a cross on his lawn in the '50s? The guy who prosecuted them in the POTUS office in the '60s noting "I have fought them all my life" and referred to when he was a boy in Texas in the '20s when his father got threatened by the Klan because he (the father) denounced them in the state house so they all stayed up with shotguns waiting-- that LBJ?

    The '40s? You mean when Stetson Kennedy wrote his exposé of the Klan and shamed them through Superman? And then had to flee the country because of Klan threats?

    What the fuck kind of "muscle" is that?

    You didn't find 'KKK affiliated organizations' in Washington, Oregon, California, Colorado, Kansas, Maine, Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania and as documented in this thread New Jersey and Wisconsin. You found the actual Klan itself. Electing all those Republicans and infiltrating the entire state of Indiana, where one-third of the entire adult male population was Klan. These aren't "affilates". That's the KLAN.

    You never did answer why a "Democrat" organization would be working so hard in so many places to elect Republicans.

    Nonsense.

    Nonsense.

    Nonsense.

    The Klan was not political in that sense at all.

    Working so hard? How hard was the KKK capable of working in a political sense at that time ? Anecdotal accounts of Cross burnings make my case. How could the President of the United States get away with appointing a former member of the KKK to the Supreme Court if the KKK wasn't considered harmless or a tool of the democrat party in the 40's?

    Who's quote is this?

    “[T]here’s not enough troops in the Army to force the Southern people to break down segregation and admit the n***r race into our theatres, into our swimming pools, into our homes, and into our churches,”

    I found this image on Google image, and yes Peter Shulman claims this is an image from the Wisconsin Historical Society. There are several others who continue to refer to it as an image from the 1924 DNC Convention. That doesn't change the number of Democrats or DixieCrats that changed parties...

    Nopes. We done proved it here a year ago. Snopes seems to have caught up now.

    It was waaaaaay back in ought-17 that intrepid investigators here busted this bogus thread and found the Wisconsin Historical Society records --- matter of fact it was about day 2 of the thread. We had a grand ol' time watching the OP squirm around without admitting he fucked up. He STILL can't do it. Fun stuff.

    AGAIN... we did that a year ago. I believe I posted the exact size dimensions, date (December 2) and name of the photographer (started with a V).

    The quote is from Strom Thurmond, and it's from his 1948 run for President after he and several other Southerners walked out of the Democratic convention after hearing too much about "civil rights" from Harry Truman and the young mayor of Minneapolis Hubert Humphrey. After he lost that bid he tried to run for Senate and the Democrats kicked him oft the ballot so he had to run as a write-in, which he won.

    I don't even need to look this shit up anymore. But what's that got to do with anything?

    Back to the photo, I don't give a rat's ass how many citations you can find of anybody who misattributes it, mostly because they did what the dipshit OP did and ran it without checking --- NOBODY ANYWHERE holds a fucking political convention on wet trolley tracks in front of a residential street. That's a SCREAMING clue right there.
