Found this KKK pamphlet in a box from an estate sale dated 1920. Interesting immigration parallels

And almost entirely democratic party members at that time.

Don't leave out that important bit.

The kkk was started by democrats and controlled by democrats when they were most powerful and did most of their lynchings of both black and white republicans.

Fair enough. Now, I'll repeat that line to you. Make sure you don't leave out why the racist conservatives left the Democratic Party and joined the Republican Party.

There was a certain situation called the "Civil Rights Movement" which the racist Dems opposed. But when the Civil Rights Act of 1964 passed and ended racial segregation in America, the racist conservatives moved to the Republican Party in protest. This was exacerbated by the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (which gave African Americans the right to vote) and the 1967 Supreme Court case of Loving vs Virginia (which overturned all State bans on interracial marriage). This is also when the liberal Republicans switched parties, joining the Democratic Party.

Nixon, Atwater, and other Republican leaders even came up with "The Southern Strategy" which was meant to exploit the racial tension even further. And it's literally the Republican Party's election strategy to this day. Make sure you don't forget that part too, ok?

The Southern Strategy ... so effective that only one prominent Federal level southern politician of the era ever actually swapped sides, Strom Thurmond. The rest all remained happy Democrats to the end of their days and continued to elected for the next decades until the kids who grew up under the de-segregation started electing different politicians, and it wasn't until the '90s that the new sentiment got into the governor's mansion on a widespread level.



Just another fiction the left likes to keep telling itself to justify its losses.

Face it, your ideas are just not all that popular.

So who do most KKK sympathizers, Neo-Nazis, Aryan Nation, and other white supremacists side with today? Last time I checked, they still promote a halt on immigration, the profiling of Muslims, the deporting and demonizing of illegal/undocumented immigrants, the stereotyping of African Americans and "inner cities", etc.

I'd advise anyone reading this to take 10 minutes to check any of their current websites and look at their party platforms. Now which national political party echoes these policies, sometimes word-for-word?
