The below picture was taken during the 1924 Democratic Convention.

It was also known as “Klanbake.”

In Madison Square Garden, New York City, from June 24 to July 9, a dispute during came up revolving around an attempt by non-Klan delegates, led by Forney Johnston of Alabama, to condemn the organization for its violence in the Democratic Party’s platform.

But Klan delegates defeated the platform plank in a series of floor debates.

To celebrate, tens of thousands of hooded Klansmen rallied in a field in New Jersey, across the river from New York City. This event, known subsequently as the “Klanbake”, was also attended by hundreds of Klan delegates to the convention, who burned crosses, urged violence and intimidation against African Americans and Catholics, and attacked effigies of Smith.

The final vote was 546.15 for the Klan, 542.85 against it.

The Truth About the Obama ‘Presidency’ .He was not presidential.HE IS MORE LIKE A KLANSMAN THAN LIKE A DEMOCRAT.

And so would say Winston Curchill if he were alive today, and in whose view of history I was thoroughly trained by Professor Emeritis Gilbert Allardyce of the UNB Dept.of History, most of the faculty in my day had fought in Europe. It was no accident that President Obama quickly whisked the Churchill Bust on loan out of the oval office and back to the British Embassy in Washington, on his first day in office.Obama was about to revise history in his own image, or so he thought, just as so many utopians had attempted before in Europe and elsewhere.Since when must our politicians promise us salvation and not merely constitutional governance? We actually can save ourselves we do not need government for that, neh?

We need to understand exactly what is happening. This is big picture stuff. Very Important, especially to those of us who have friends overseas, or who live outside the USA and Canada.

It was Obama who introduced uncertainty into our traditional alliances, including Japan, not Trump as presently claimed by the left.

In particular all of our allies watched in horror and disbelief when Obama abandoned US allies Libya and Egypt , using various ideological politically correct excuses of disagreement on the internal affairs of those nations.Libya was destroyed by NATO, a travesty.

Trump is repairing that damage and DE-emphasizing the Saudi role in America’s international affairs.The Sods have one last chore to do.Look after the refugees of the Levant.

The EU bent over for Obama, the great Nobel Peace Prize recipient.Obama entered, drank their wine,ate their cheese, denigrated their anti-Muslim crackers,smelled their perfume,breached stuffy protocols, kissed male leaders on the lips, convinced the EU of his moral superiority as Americas first blackish president. They believed their own myth.Japan does not.Japan remembered the utopian fascism of Tojo while Europe all but forgot the utopian-ism of Hitler and Mussolini.But Obama failed to convince the Queen of England. Why?

Obama then used Europe to create his Arab Spring, releasing millions of refugees from the Levant, Libya and Africa, all aimed at the heart of Russia,a US betrayal of its allies, Libya and Egypt, an exercise in modern demographic warfare via community organizing.Putin saw Obama coming and seized the Crimea and Eastern Ukraine to prevent Muslim refugees from entering Russia, and aided Syria, and Iran...stopping Obama short for the embarrassing sophomore that he was.But it cost the innocent lives of millions, a fact unpublished even today.

The masses of refugees created by Obama and Clinton streamed into Western Europe, crossing the Mediterranean, sliding into Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia, and beyond. Brussels and the EU played their politically correct cards, accepting the demographic warfare fomented by Obama, who even now continues to hoodwink Europe and the EU, assuring them that their world will not fall apart as the Muslim hordes continue to descend on Germany. Europe is losing itself.

Trump is right, Brexit is right. Its a new world. And Shinzo Abe is right.

And we all now see Obama defined as the Utopian liberal fascist that he is, who convinced Europe that he was not just another shuck and jive politician, once again Europe believed in a Utopia, just as they had accepted the Utopias of Hitler and Mussolini. Hoodwinked yet again, but this time by an American presidential psychopomp, whose similarities to his European predecessor utopians went completely unnoticed, even when they were complicit in the illegal destruction of Libya , and destroyed the 8th wonder of the world, The Great Man Made River, genocide caused by destroying the water supply of a whole people.You won’t read about that in any liberal progressive rag. The EU should be ashamed of itself.It certainly does not deserve to continue.But we need NATO to balance an aggressively defensive Russia.

If the EU does not take the opportunity afforded by Trump to repudiate Obama, they will become Muslim nations, or become the conquered of Russia. The EU has only a short amount of time to realize its foolishness in the destruction of Libya at the hands of utopian liberal fascism, a whole nation destroyed by the very political correctness which now threatens the destruction of Europe as we know it.

Merkel must go. LepPin must win France. Its all about to begin: the battle for the heart and soul of Europe. Britain is safe,only for the moment.Spain is also about to suffer attack from Morocco and West Sudan, but we won;t read about that either. Its not covered in the general news..

Brussels is done, but Europe? We shall see.America will yet again attempt to rescue Europe from itself.But there is little enthusiasm for it after what Europe and Obama did to Libya, an act of infamy which will go down in history as one of the most heinous acts ever perpetrated on a third world nation of camel herders by the so called civilized nations of NATO. SHAME! Tripoli, a former radiant city of trade and commerce, seeking to bring its populace into the modern world, lies in rubble.

Obama has been running around Europe like a one armed paper hanger as his international grift falls completely apart.Trump and his allies know perfectly well what to do next. The effects of Arab Spring on Europe must be stopped.No more demographic warfare will be allowed.The Saudis will pay for the relocation of the refugees created by Obama, or they will sit by and watch them die. This is the true Obama legacy.

Meanwhile Japan under Shinzo Abe gets it, Europe excluding Britain does not.

Canada ? I will remain silent. But we need change very badly to address pragmatic issues presented by the various economic changes in Europe and the United States. We can no longer hug ourselves into food for the dinner table.Jobs are needed.

The West is having a paradigm shift. It was almost too long in coming: A good read from 2009:

If we start by agreeing that the politics and aims of the Ku Klux Klan are evil, I think that would be a good start. Can I get an AMEN?

In the 1860s, the Democrats used race hatred to obtain and maintain political power. In the 1920s, the Democrats used race hatred to obtain and maintain political power. And in the 2010s, the Democrats use race hatred to obtain and maintain political power. The Democrats always have been, are and probably always will be the Party of Race Hatred.

Oh, I’m sure they were Republicans and were either just lost or were there to protest the valiant and pure Dem convention. [/lib]

If there is something Democrat politicians absolutely despise...it is a successful, happy, educated, and intact black family.

The meme has been “we kicked the Klan out of the democratic party, and the all joined the republican party.”

Bollocks.

About thirty years ago I had a government college professor try to tell us that. I called him out on it by respectfully asking a lot of questions.
