History Of The Democrats And The KKK.....(Why the Democrats started the KKK)

The original targets of the Ku Klux Klan were Republicans, both black and white, according to a new television program and book, which describe how the Democrats started the KKK and for decades harassed the GOP with lynchings and threats.

An estimated 3,446 blacks and 1,297 whites died at the end of KKK ropes from 1882 to 1964.

The documentation has been assembled by David Barton of Wallbu More..ilders and published in his book "Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black & White," which reveals that not only did the Democrats work hand-in-glove with the Ku Klux Klan for generations, they started the KKK and endorsed its mayhem.

"Of all forms of violent intimidation, lynchings were by far the most effective," Barton said in his book. "Republicans often led the efforts to pass federal anti-lynching laws and their platforms consistently called for a ban on lynching. Democrats successfully blocked those bills and their platforms never did condemn lynchings."

Further, the first grand wizard of the KKK was honored at the 1868 Democratic National Convention, no Democrats voted for the 14th Amendment to grant citizenship to former slaves and, to this day, the party website ignores those decades of racism, he said.

    The statement is wrong and out of context

    #1 It was not "THE democrats" who started the KKK.
    This creates the misconception that ALL democrats back in that time were KKK which is a ridiculous assumption.
    The people who started it were 19th century Democrats , but certainly not every one agreed with the KKK...

    Back in that time the Democrats were Conservative , and the Republicans were Liberal and Progressive..
    From the end of the 19th century till the 60's of the 20th century gradually there was a complete ideology change between both parties
    The Democrats became more and more progressive while the Republicans became more and more Conservative ..

    #2 To make this statement "It were Democrats who started the KKK" in the 21st century only correct when it is said in the context with 18th century history.

    #3 To take it out of this context, and spread the assumption that current day Democrats are the same as 18th century Democrats is totally misleading
    To correctly say it in political context, it should be: "It were Conservatives who started the KKK"

    See ? it makes perfect sense, -nothing- has changed , the conservatives still target the liberals, only (I may hope) they don't lynch them anymore..

    Sorry, ask Robert "Sheets" Byrd a democrat Senator from West Virginia, he was the grand wizard of his local Klan. And if you are against GOD "the religious right" who are you for? Do you know how abortions are performed? They take a punch and puncture a hole in the babys head, this is done while the baby is able to feel this, the baby will jerk and writhe after this is done. Then the doctor will take a high velocity vacuum place that vacuum into the hole punctured to suck out the babys brain. Sound humane? And as far as moving forward when has government dependency ever moved anyone forward?

    As a libertarian, abortion is a personal choice. I will always defer to personal freedoms. I hope soon there will be a third party that will combine the best elements of all the political parties in America. Hopefully they will call it the Constitutional party.

    Now here is what your history lesson fails to mention:

    In between the formation of the klan, and the present day, the two political parties swung to the opposite of what they were when formed..

    The republicans.....were the liberals, who sought the abolishment of slavery, and the democrats were the conservatives who demanded that it remain a "state level" issue.
    And the infamous "Southern Democrats" were the WORST...they were the ones who started the klan.
    Also having married a southern woman, I can say that "southern pride" is deeply held, and many of those southern democrats refused to change what they were called.

    But here is the wikipedia page on Southern Democrats:
    Read on..

    Southern Democrats are members of the U.S. Democratic Party who reside in the American South. In the 19th century, they were the definitive pro-slavery wing of the party, opposed to both the anti-slavery Republicans (GOP) and the more liberal Northern Democrats.

    Eventually "Redemption" was finalized in the Compromise of 1877 and the Redeemers gained control throughout the South. As the New Deal began to move Democrats as a whole to the left (at least economically), Southern Democrats largely stayed as conservative as they had always been, with some even breaking off to form farther right-wing s...

    Eventually "Redemption" was finalized in the Compromise of 1877 and the Redeemers gained control throughout the South. As the New Deal began to move Democrats as a whole to the left (at least economically), Southern Democrats largely stayed as conservative as they had always been, with some even breaking off to form farther right-wing splinters like the Dixiecrats. After the Civil Rights Movement successfully challenged the Jim Crow laws and other forms of institutionalized racism, and after the Democrats as a whole came to symbolize the mainstream left of the United States, the form, if not the content, of Southern Democratic politics began to change.

    After World War II, during the civil rights movement, Democrats in the South initially still voted loyally with their party. After the signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, white voters who became tolerant of diversity began voting against Democratic incumbents for GOP candidates. The Republicans carried many Southern states for the first time since before the Great Depression. Rising educational levels and rising prosperity in the South, combined with shifts to the left by the national Democratic Party on a variety of socio-economic issues, led to widespread abandonment of the Democratic Party by white voters and Republican dominance in many Southern states by the 1990s and 2000s.

    When Richard Nixon courted voters with his Southern Strategy, many Democrats became Republicans and the South became fertile ground for the GOP, which conversely was becoming more conservative as the Democrats were becoming more liberal. However, Democratic incumbents still held sway over voters in many states, especially those of the Deep South. In fact, until 2002, Democrats still had much control over Southern politics. It wasn't until the 1990s that Democratic control gradually collapsed, starting with the elections of 1994, in which Republicans gained control of both houses of Congress, through the rest of the decade. Southern Democrats of today who vote for the Democratic ticket are mostly urban liberals. Rural residents tend to vote for the Republican ticket, although there are a sizable number of Conservative Democrats.



    It's not democrat vs republican.....it's liberal vs conservative.
    So we can see that it didn't matter WHAT they were calling themselves at the time.
    Thus ends the WHOLE story.

    And to know as well that President Woodrow Wilson, the icon of the progressive movement in America, thought the movie "Birth of a Nation" was an excellent portrayal of American history. This movie lionized the Klan, presenting (white men in blackface) African-Americans as shifty, sneaky criminals whose only desire was to rape white women. The KKK were the literal White Knights in the film, saving white civilization from blacks. It seems today's "progressives" have a lot in common with yesterday's progressives. The only difference is that they've created a nation of voluntary slaves through manipulation by entitlement and indoctrination through government education.

    Simple is the Democrat Party burys it, and brainwashes the future generation with rewriting the history meanwhile future generation don't know that and who don't get to study the history in school get to be more dumbed down by the rest of the West( Europe) Because West knows more about it. World wide ranking in Education 18th place from first place in just few years.

    Other subject, the democrat party won't let this one as infamous abortionsist leader,Margaret Sanger, to be really known as a racist, and helped to have the black abortions!!!!!! Abortion leader who started the birth control as the first and real reason was to control the black races, then later to imperfect babies. The black abortion was over 2 millions from 40's to 80's. Famous Margaret Sanger was also a KKK member. It's Hillary Clinton's idol!(She even said that)

    Democrats are always re-writing history. A much higher percentage of Republicans voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Bill compared to Democrats. There was more support from the Republican party for the bill than from the Democrat party.

    Yeah, it proves my point. A higher percentage of republicans supported the Civil Rights Bill compared to democrats.

    Senator Robert Byrd was a KKK member and never left the democrat party.
    Trent Lott is not my hero. Reagan, Eisenhower are my political heroes.

    You can rant and spin the truth all you want, but the point is, more Republicans supported the civil right bill. Democrats are closet racists, Republicans just expect everyone to carry their weight. Republicans believe that everyone can achieve the American dream, even minorities. Democrats believe that blacks and other minorities can't do anything on their own so they give them hand outs. Why is Head Start filled with primarily African- Americans? Because Democrats, being the closet racists, believe that black parents can't or won't read to them. Democrats believe the black child needs a head start because they believe they are less intelligent then other children. Hatred and racism started with democrats, the KKK started with democrats, now, to get votes, they pretend that they are for the black man but all their policies have done is...tear families apart, make them dependent on welfare and government assistance.

    I was only pointing out black republicans or conservatives. There are many successful democrats. The difference is, Republicans believe that everyone has the potential to achieve the American dream, and even if you fail, you still have a second, third and even a 4th chance of success.

    Democrats believe that people(especially minorities) need free stuff to succeed. This only traps people in a cycle of dependence on the government. By doing this, democrats are almost guaranteed to get their votes. All that other stuff you talked about is just democrat talking points, yeah, they may have helped a few people but most people are harmed by it. Affirmative action is racist.
