Sorry, but the "switch" myth was devised by the left to reduce their guilt.

I've busted that myth many many many times on this forum.

nevermind i just looked myself and found link from right wing radio talk show host who go on and on using the word "Democrat" instead of the more descriptive "Conservative" southern democrats....


i come from a family of democratic support and AM aware of Woodrow Wilson's racism as well as supreme court justices with KKK membership...my grandmother came from Poland and in the 1920s the KKK burnt crosses accross the street being Polish AND Catholic lol...you will find for your own enlightenment that substituting "Conservative" for "Democrat" eliminates much confusion and clarifies things

And republiCONS have happy embraced the KKK and openly welcomed them into their party. Just ask David Duke.

The KKK was formed in 1866. According to liberal Columbia U. historian Eric Foner, it was a "military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party." What is not often remembered is that the KKK was not just anti-black, but also strongly anti-Semitic and anti-Catholic.

Today we see a surge of anti-Semitism. About a month after Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared the 'BDS' (boycott, divest, sanction) movement against Israel to be anti-Semitic, a pro-BDS resolution was introduced by Ilhan Omar (D,MN). Democratic presidential candidates flock around, and fawn over, Rev. Al Sharpton, who once said, "If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house."

There is also increasing anti-Catholicism in evidence. During a judicial confirmation hearing of Amy Coney Barrett, who is Catholic, a Senator attacked her saying, "the dogma lives loudly within you...."

In a recent talk, Rep. (and 'squad' member) Ayanna Pressley (D,MA) said, "We donít need any more brown faces that donít want to be a brown voice. We donít need black faces that donít want to be a black voice." In other words, thought must comport with skin color. Exactly what the KKK would have promoted and pursued.

Virginia governor Ralph Northam posed for a photo of a man in blackface, and another in KKK garb. Not as a 14 or 15-yr. old, but as a 25-yr-old medical student. No problem--he's now a great hero in certain quarters.

If you like your Klan, you can keep your Klan!
Instead of "Democrats", read it as "conservatives". The party of Lincoln in those days, the one that freed the slaves, was the "Liberal" party. John Wilkes Booth was a conservative.

Hope this clears up your misconceptions.

to be fair its david duke who endorsed trump not the other way around




We are determined to take our country back,” Duke said from the rally, calling it a “turning point.” “We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. That’s what we believed in. That’s why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he’s going to take our country back.”

Once upon a time the northern Republicans were liberal, while the southern Dixiecrats were conservative. Then they switched sides. The liberal Democrats kicked the KKK out of the party in 1965. The KKK then fell into the loving arms of the newly conservative Republican party, where they still are today.
All 150 to 200 of them. The KKK was still very active in NC up until the mid/late 80's. Guess who ran the state at that point in time?
