Posted on 08/13/2006 7:29:02 PM PDT by WaterDragon
It ran on the 12th of August in mid-afternoon. The program detailed the history of the Ku Klux Klan in every respect but one. This one manipulation tells you the purpose of those running the History Channel, and clearly proves the oft-made charge that said location on the television spectrum is when needed nothing more than a propaganda tool for the modern Democrat Party of America.
When it is repeated, watch Ku Klux Klan: A Secret History with the following point in mind.
During the first half listen for the political affiliations of Klan members in the North. In Indiana, as well as other locales, you will frequently hear the word "Republican." Then during the second half of this two hour documentary, which features Klan activity in the South during the civil rights days of the Fifties, see if you can tell by the narrative which political party these Klansmen serve. Not even when they are marching in the streets of Birmingham, Alabama ("the citys law enforcement was known for its working relationship with the Klan") carrying signs castigating "Martin Luther Coon," bombing black homes and businesses and even churches not during all of these references did I hear the program mention the politics of the Klan members and public and private supporters in the region during those days.
Know from this essay that they were Democrats...(snip)

Hey, wait a minute, you mean it wasn't racist Republicans? You mean that Robert Byrd didn't cross the aisle? Gosh...
Of course they wouldn't mention that they were Democrats. It just wouldn't fit with the modern assumptions. All Republicans have to be hateful racists, or the whole game falls apart.
As I explain in my book, Back to Basics for the Republican Party, the Reconstruction-era Ku Klux Klan was the terrorist wing of the Democratic Party. See http://www.republicanbasics.com for more information.
I guess there was no mention of KKK Byrd?
They should ask him, he is a living expert on the Klan.
My Mom grew up a Democrat in Indiana in the 20s & 30s. Her Dad was a member of the KKK, but her Mom refused to let him go to any meetings - said the day he did that, she would leave him.
In the 20s, it was illegal for a black man to stay overnight in the county. The north, in some ways, was worse than the south.
And it had nothing to do with political parties.
you will hear democraps say that all those racist demcraps during the cival rights marches switched over to the republican party.Well if that were true most would be dead now.It was the republicans that got civil rights passed in this country but you would never know this.that is sad.
Yup. It was the Democrats who (in the shameful Ohio Compromise that put Grant into office) took over the south, annulled all the elections of blacks and set race relations in America back 100 years.
No. No mention of Senator Byrd.
A few Reason articles a while back detailed how racism often went hand-in-hand with progressivism back in the early part of the 20th century. I don't think the History Channel can paper over how the power that the klan had over southern Democrats during segregation.
Is your comment supposed to make sense?
Many historians believe that an informal deal was struck to resolve the dispute. In return for Southern acquiescence in Hayes' election, the Republicans agreed to withdraw federal troops from the South, effectively ending Reconstruction. This deal became known as the Compromise of 1877. The Compromise effectively pushed African-Americans out of power in the government; soon after the compromise, African-Americans were barred from voting by poll taxes and grandfather clauses.
Yes it was. I learned it in school (many moons ago) as "The Ohio Compromise". But then it wasn't a very good school.
Although the KKK's influence in the Indiana GOP at the time should have been covered, the special should have also included the KKK's influence in the time.
To date, the only person in congress who was a member of the KKK is a democrat.
Although the KKK's influence in the Indiana GOP at the time should have been covered, the special should have also included the KKK's influence in the time in places like Missouri and Oklahoma.
Any mention of Hugo Black, Supreme Court Justice, Democrat, and KKK member?
The narrator is actuall D. Paul Thomas, and the list who contributes is a bunch of liberals like Morris Dees. They also have contributed some other stuff to the HC as well.
They went to DC looking for work in the federal government and to places like Detroit and Boston looking for jobs. Check out race relations in those cities to see if Dems have done well. Poison politics of race in Detroit, riots over bussing in Boston by whites, poverty, crime, and expensive bad schools in DC.
