You are aware that the KKK became closely allied with the Democrats shortly after it's formation in the post Civil War South? And that a Republican Congress and Republican President signed into law the act that banned the KKK? Spare me your comments about republicans belonging to the KKK. It sounds to me like the dim's record is not exactly snow white in regard to the Klan.

Condescending ***.

We're all aware of how the political parties have changed over the centuries, too.

However, TODAY, the GOP is closely aligned to the separatist movements, the hate groups, the "patriot movement," and the other racist nonsense in the country.
