The question the Original Poster should be asking is, if the Klan did not exist in the past and was founded today, what party would they align themselves with?






Oh they most definitely would have "im with Her" bumper stickers next to old Obama Stickers on their car. Im sure they would shop at Whole Foods so they can get the best gluten free goodies for all their pals at the Klan Meeting.

I'm sure while burning a cross or two they would sip on some refreshing Kombucha and discuss how great Obama was and How terrible Trump is.

Excellent point. It really isn't totally fair to characterize the modern KKK/White Supremacists overmuch with the Republican party at large or more exactly, with all Republicans.

Within the scope of my lifetime, our two parties were able to hold their own positions, but still work together.

I get a little, you get a little, and the country moves forward.

In the last decade all cooperative government has stopped.

That's the issue we need to address ... not who started the Klan or who wipes "ANTIFAs" little bottoms.

You're gonna have a hard time finding that quote.

What I said is every Klansmen is a conservative. Do you disagree? Which party's political ideology do they currently align with? Can you answer that?


LOL, keep trying to play semantics son...

Let's see, which party's political ideology do gangbangers normally align with?... I guess the democrat party must be violent gangbangers right?... That's the type of argument you are trying to make...


My guess would be that gangbangers concern themselves with guns, drugs and ho's and not politics. They defend their own blindly. Kinda like you're doing here... with more deflection as well.

You aren't the only one that makes this asinine argument.

Perhaps take posts not directed to you a bit less personally?

Very original of you to try to attack the messenger.... Any facts you want to dispute with actual evidence, or do you think that making an ad hominem because you disagree with the premise of the thread is an actual intelligent counter-argument?...

BTW NAZIS, as in the original were/are National socialists...


Oh yeah... the national-socialist policies they've installed... like dismantling all unions and denying workers the rights to vote on their issues for example! Fantastic. Wait. What's socialism again?

BTW, just a duped person would think that the party name stands for content.

Wait. I'm uttering the Public Opinion, always, right? You'd listen to the public opinion, right? ... Right?

OP why you lie?

First lie: The KKK in the past supported the Democrats and had democratic members but it was not started by the democrats it was started by former confederate members who were unhappy with reconstruction and the loss of slavery.

Second lie: The KKK now supports GOP and Tea Party candidates so no they were not always a left-wing org. in fact they NEVER were a left-wing org. They have always been right-wing.

Well, we all know what a paragon of human rights and equality the Democratic People's Republic of Korea is today, amirite?

I mean, it's right there in their name and all.

I didn't take it personally. You said you keep asking the question but never get any answers.

But I did answer that question for you.

Right on.

Dude I am so fed up with this Nazi were socialist argument.


It's like saying that North Korea is Democratic because it's the People's Democratic Republic Of Korea.

There is a huge difference between Marxist Ideology and Nazi Ideology Now I'm not saying I like either one of them but to say they are the same thing is ridiculously ignorant.

Oooh, i see...you mean like the way the castros dispensed with unions in Cuba and implemented their own state-run union?...

You mean like Mussolini dispensed of the old unions and implemented the state unions?...

You mean like so many socialists/communists dispensed with the old systems, including unions if there were, and implemented state-run unions?...

Yes, like so many other socialists, and even communists did, Hitler dispensed of the old unions and implemented the German Labour Force, headed by Robert Ley...

Just an observation. Take it for what you will.

There is absolutely no logical point in trying to tie the KKK to any particular political party, whether in the past or present.

All of us, except the modern KKK members, can all agree the KKK and their beliefs have no place in our society. We should be able to stand together in denouncing their ideologies, instead of trying to point back in history to blame one side or another.

So instead of the stupid argument that the Nazis were left wing ... you should be claiming that the USSR, Cuba, etc. were all authoritarian right-wing regimes?

You know there are more viewpoints then left and right black and white don't you?

You should tell that to AM, because he seems to think that conservatives are only republicans.


No, you claimed he said that. When asked to prove he'd said that, you stopped engaging with him. In any sort of meaningful way, that is.

I didn't attack the messenger. I pointed out that a very long lengthy thread about this very subject, with much debate, already exists yet you still felt the need to create an entirely new thread about the subject so that you could pontificate.

I posted all my facts in the other, original thread. Ergo, I don't disagree with the premise of the thread.

I just disagree with your cry for stars and flags.

Oh no......
A reasonable statement.
We simply can not have that in a divisive thread such as this.
Everyone needs their cortisol fix.

Begone with your reasonable point of view I came here to argue damn it!
