Racism and the Democratic Party

Contrary to what uninformed liberals believe, the Ku Klux Klan was an outgrowth of the Democrat Party, with overlapping membership rolls. The Klan was to the Democrats what the American Civil Liberties Union is today: Not every Democrat is an ACLU'er, but every ACLU'er is a Democrat. Same with the Klan. [1]

After the war, Democrat legislatures enacted "Black Codes," denying black Americans the rights of citizenship—such as the rather crucial one of bearing arms—while other Democrats (sometimes the same Democrats) founded the Ku Klux Klan. (ibid)

Even to this day, the KKK (as do similar racist groups and movements such as Black Lives Matter and La Raza) are supportive of the Democrats. During the 2016 United States presidential election, the KKK supported Hillary Clinton (whose mentor, late Democrat senator Robert Byrd, was himself a longtime KKK member[1]) for President[2] after the Klan's attempt, in possible collusion with the Democrats, to discredit Donald Trump and his campaign by publicly pretending to "support" him (and in so doing, fabricate a false link between the KKK and the Republicans and falsely label the GOP as the "racist" party, as the Democrats have done since 1964[3]) backfired when Trump in particular, and the GOP (who have always opposed the KKK and despise what they stand for) as a whole, rejected the Klan's "endorsement" and when the historic Democrat-KKK link, which has long been common knowledge,[4] was brought to light.

Thomas Sowell wrote:

  • "Racism" is the trump card in the indictment of Republicans. But the cold fact is that the whole Jim Crow era in the South was dominated by Democrats. [2]
