People need to understand that the KKK was always the paramilitary wing of the Democrats.
Nathan, what say you?
I wonder why an organization like the Klan arose? Was it due to an innate maliciousness found only in Southern whites? Did the Klan arise in response to external factors such as Reconstruction? It is easy just to say it was naughty-which it was.
In Indiana in the middle of the 20th century, the Democratic legislature and governor were CONTROLLED by the KKK, if they weren’t outright KKK members.
Legendary stuff here in Indiana.
Presidents who were members of the KKK:
Warren Harding, Woodrow Wilson, McKinley, Calvin Coolidge, and IIRC Harry Truman.
Also Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black, appointed by the radical leftist FDR.
They were insurgent terrorists in the reconstruction South.
No one on the Left wants to proclaim that the Civil War lasted for over 100 years.
But no one on the Left wants to admit that the “Iraq war” ended with the capture of Saddam Hussein.
World War II was immediately followed by the Cold War.
Sometimes related events have different enemies and combat. It is in error to call them ONE event.
This will be much better than that documentary I watched on the history channel about the KKK. In the KKK a Secret History, they only mentioned one party being associated with the Klan - The Republican party. I watched it in amazement, because it was a complete re-writing of actual historical fact. The biggest secret of that documentary was not one word regarding the Democrats and their role in creating the KKK being uttered.
Much like the IRA was to Sinn Fein.
Thanks for posting! I have to find this book.
Republicans were anti-slavery and were targeted by the KKK.
Democrats were pro-slavery, used the KKK terrorists to further their cause and are still racist to this very day with their obsession with Affirmative Action and their willingness to play the race card at any opportunity.
Conservatives don't care what race or color you are, we care about your actions, your ability and strength of character. We're the least racist group of people as we simply don't care about race in the first place!
It's testament to the GOP’s ineffectual leadership, weak attacks on the biased MSM and lack of a clear presentation of its core principles that has lead to today's sorry state of liberal falsehoods masquerading as facts to the majority of American citizens.
We need a strong Conservative force and we need it NOW!
For those that know something about history, this isn’t a new revelation. As someone that lives in the South, it has only been within the last twenty years that the South has become predominately Republican. Democrats have always been the party that fought against civil rights but none of this matters. The vast majority of Americans know nothing about history, nor do they care to learn it. The Republicans will never get any credit for the advancement of civil rights for blacks. Perception is reality. The liberal democrats are seen as the political party for blacks and nothing in my lifetime will change that. The GOP will NEVER get more than ten percent of the black vote.
Blacks, Catholics and Jews plus republicans...
