Why would the KKK need to endorse a Democrat. Their grand wizard was the Democrat Senator from West Virginia for decades.

No he wasn't. The only grand wizard I know of who was elected was David Duke, and he wasn't from West Virginia.

I find it cool that there is a communist party in the first place. One might think few people in the US dare admit they are communist, given all the anti-communist rhetoric everywhere.
Do you find it cool all the millions of their own citizens killed by the communist governments over the decades?

So the defense by the left that their buddies over at the communist party has endorsed their great communist leader Obama is screaming KKK and trying to deflect the thread away. I guess it's all they can do as their is no defense for communist support unless of course you are one.

Sorry, you and most Democrats are far more knowledgeable about the KKK hierarchy than I could ever dream to be.

So, if he wasn't a grand wizard, what was his clan rank? Or are you claiming Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV), the #3 Democrat in the Senate leadership for many years, wasn't a Klansman?

Ah, the opposite of the "My God is better than your God" BS that creates so many problems in the world.

"My Satan is less bad than your Satan" BS.

But BS all the same.
