That ↑ was a joke that flew right over your hood. Inasmuch as the Klan was founded 12/24/1865, before there was any "Republicans" or "voting" for anything or "political parties" in a place that was not even part of the United States, the punch line to that joke is "linear time'. Everybody knows that. Well except maybe Joe McCarthy. But you go ahead and have fun spinning your myths, I got plenty of mock to go around.
