KKK: The Terrorist Wing of the Democrat Party

Robert 'Sheets' ByrdYesterday in forgotten, yet essential, history — Republicans outlawed the KKK:

On this day in 1871, the Republican-controlled 42nd Congress passed and the Republican President, Ulysses Grant, signed into law the Ku Klux Klan Act. The law banned the KKK and other Democrat terrorist organizations. President Grant then deployed federal troops to crush a Klan uprising in South Carolina.

And why would Republicans do this? I thought they were supposed to be racist?

For decades after the Civil War, the Ku Klux Klan was the terrorist wing of the Democratic Party. Klansmen murdered hundreds of Republican activists and office-holders, including U.S. Representative James Hinds (R-Arkansas).

Republicans have always led the fight against terrorism and terrorists. Same as always.

Liberal historians have tried to rewrite history ever since, attempting to paint the Republican Party as the racists and conflating the GOP with the KKK. But what party has a KKK Senator named Robert “Sheets” Byrd? That’s right. The Democrat Party. Some things never change.

Race baiting, race pimping, and outright racism. It’s all in the party. The Democrat Party. Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it (or allow it to happen again). The Democrat Party: the party of terrorism and racism. Never forget.

  1. Of course you completely ignore the fact that Byrd left the Klan in the 50s, and severely regretted ever joining. You also fail to look any deeper into history than the words on a page in a history book. Before FDR, the Republican party held the same essential values as the modern Democratic party.

  3. The truly racist aspect of the Democratic Party is how they assume the mantle of civil rights and representing minority voters. They continue the stereotype that all blacks follow the assumed leadership of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Even now, if a black person votes or even voices opinions that are contrary to the Democratic position, they are often viewed as and accused of being an “Uncle Tom”. Look at the anger and noise that was created from the left by Justice Thomas and his biography. Even if you don’t like his point of view on race relations and race quotas, one would think that his experience of living through racism would give him a more “educated” outlook on the subject than say some white dude that believes that all blacks can’t possibly overcome challenges on their own without the white man helping them out. It isn’t the redneck racist in the middle of Alabama that does the damage to Black America…its the inner city government that lowers school standards, the crippling society damage from the drug trade, the lack of jobs, and the near complete destruction of the family structure that has destroyed so many children. Its not a black thing, its a poverty thing, which cannot be answered by just increased taxes and more welfare. The problems facing us in Baltimore are similar to the problems facing rural Kentucky. I don’t have the answers, but neither do the Democrats or the Republicans…no…the answers are for the Most Honorable Senator Brownback to give to us…when we prove ourselves ready to receive his gracious wisdom.

  7. Let’s just forget how:

    -Barry Goldwater, seen as the man who ushered in the beginning of when Republicans switched to Conservative Mode, opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964

    -The Willie Horton ad campaign for Reagan, which ran the following caption beneath Willie Horton’s image(who happens to be black): “Every suburban mother’s greatest fear”. It was not well-received, and generally referred to as “racist”.

    -“In the aftermath of the mass movement for civil rights, which mobilized millions of black workers and youth with the support of substantial layers of the working class and middle class nationally, it was less and less possible to gain political office through open appeals to segregationism. Instead, the Republican Party evolved a sort of political code, in which opposition to welfare programs and advocacy of ‘states’ rights’ took the place of overt defense of white supremacy.”

    -“The political meaning of this language was clear to all involved. One incident demonstrates the method: Ronald Reagan’s decision to launch his 1980 general election campaign with an appearance at the Neshoba County Fair in Philadelphia, Mississippi, the site of the most notorious crime of the civil rights era, the murder of three young civil rights workers in 1964. When Reagan delivered a speech in which he declared, ‘I believe in states’ rights,’ he was giving his tacit support to the maintenance of the social and economic oppression of the black population, even while the outward forms of legalized racism had been eliminated.”

    -Trent Lott, period.

    -Warren G. Harding is said to have been a Klansman.

    -Lee Atwater, adviser to Reagan and Bush Sr.: You start out in 1954 by saying, “Nigger, nigger, nigger.” By 1968 you can’t say “nigger”—that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states’ rights and all that stuff. You’re getting so abstract now [that] you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites.

    And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I’m not saying that. But I’m saying that if it is getting that abstract, and that coded, that we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. You follow me—because obviously sitting around saying, “We want to cut this,” is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than “Nigger, nigger.”

    -“In the 2006 campaign for Tennessee’s Senate seat, a controversial political advertisement paid for by the Republican National Committee featured a series of characters facetiously offering their support for black Democratic candidate Harold Ford, Jr. One character was a white woman — wearing a strapless dress which made her appear naked — who claimed to have met Ford at a Playboy party. At the end of the ad, she requested that Ford call her. Critics accused the RNC of race baiting by playing on negative views of mixed-race relationships.”

    The Republican party was indeed the LIBERAL party during its infancy. But eventually, they swapped– perhaps due to economic reasons, those who favored racism and slavery began to align with the Republican party.

    Yeah, ’cause no other religion has ever tried to force the scientific community to do stuff. I mean, sure, Kentucky has an entire museum that tries to force people to accept creationism, and fails miserably– and let’s not forget how Galileo was jailed…but hey, those were acceptable because white christians were behind it, amirite?

  9. Anyone want to tell them that the KKK has been reduced to little more than a grassroots organization of a few thousand? Their political sway is negligible.

  10. Dio Brando, do you even have any idea why Goldwater opposed the legislation, or are you so one dimensional that it can only mean “racist?” Try again.

    Willie Horton was a criminal let out on furlough who committed crimes after Dukakis gave him a free pass. What does color have to do with it? Liberals put so much emphasis on skin color that it blinds them to everything else. Not everyone saw him as a scary colored boy, you race pimp. Normal people saw him for what he was: a dangerous violent criminal let out of jail by a soft-on-crime out of touch liberal Governor. That’s all. Why are liberals so obsessed with flogging race?

    Only a wackjob equates complex issues of federalism and states rights with racism. So you don’t think states should reserve power for themselves which is not already ceeded to the Federal government? Are you a simpleton? Don’t answer that. You obviously are.

    Any place Ronald Reagan, our greatest ever President, made his speech, liberals would have found a black person who was being oppressed no matter what he did. Ironically the only part of our society that is not colorblind is the boy who cried “racism.” It’s the favorite canard of the dishonest left which seeks to keep people of color on the liberal plantation by constantly playing the race card. Give it up. Racism is a thing of the past, except in your racist minds.

    The rest of your rant goes even further into the gutter. You seem to really enjoy typing the n-word over and over and kicking the corpse of a man who is no longer alive for political purposes which have no effect other than to make you look bad.

    “[racist] Critics accused the RNC of race baiting [because they were by definition dishonest and had much to gain by yet again bringing up race where it wasn’t even the issue].”

    Congratulations, on that score, you certainly win. You certainly covered yourself in dishonor by peddling that dishonest hogwash.

    Rather than insisting that the Left is wrong, why don’t you prove the Right is right? Show evidence to prove that racism has been eliminated completely in this country. Prove that Republicans view blacks as being perfectly equal to any other race. I’m giving you an opportunity; since you seem incapable of proving us wrong, why not prove yourself correct? You’ve already made your love of circlejerking pretty clear

  12. “Give it up. Racism is a thing of the past, except in your racist minds.”

    You mean your own mind and the minds of every other b4b member. You can’t find a single place anywhere on the net where people have called for the deaths of more races, religions and lifestyle types than you can right here by you and your fellow bigoted idiots. Your own little story here is a smokescreen to cover your real thoughts, since the KKK is mostly Republican, Southern Baptist elitists that put themselves above all others,(in their own minds anyway), not just the blacks. And as EB pointed out, their numbers are so few that they pose no real threat to anyone anymore.
    All in all, they sound kinda like b4b.

    Too bad for you I was quoting from Atwater himself.

    By the way, Psycheout– since you seem to agree that the Republican party started out as a liberal haven, why the hatred of liberals now?

    Any place Ronald Reagan, our greatest ever President[…]

    You love having selective memory– assuming you’re even old enough to remember Reagan. Reagan supplied terrorists in Iran with guns, then turned around and gave the money to terrorists in Nicaragua.

    His administration, in the HUD Crisis, defrauded the US gov’t out of money.

    He released EPA superfund grants intended to help clean up toxic waste sites, redirecting the money to help pay for election efforts of local Republican candidates.

    “Reagan’s “elimination of loopholes” in the tax code included the elimination of the “passive loss” provisions that subsidized rental housing. Because this was removed retroactively, it bankrupted many real estate developments made with this tax break as a premise. This with some other “deregulation” policies ultimately led to the largest political and financial scandal in U.S. history: The Savings and Loan crisis. The ultimate cost of the crisis is estimated to have totaled around USD$150 billion, about $125 billion of which was consequently and directly subsidized by the U.S. government, which contributed to the large budget deficits of the early 1990s.”

    The funny thing is that you try to paint the GOP as the “civil rights” party, and yet the GOP is chock-full of elitists who want to ensure that only white male christians get to enjoy full freedoms. You yourself, believe only white male Christians are to be granted rights.

    Oh, I see. You want me to play your little identity politics game? OK, I’ll bite.

    Colin Powell, Condi Rice, Clarence Thomas and that nice Armstrong Williams fella all seem to have no problem getting to the top of their game in the Republican party. And that Obama boy has certainly made a lot of progress in the Democrat party. Too bad only haters and snobs seem to do well on the left, though. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakan and OJ Simpson — all leftists.

    But you see, it’s not about race. These colored folks all made it to where they are today based on the content of their character and not on the basis of the color of their skin.

    While those on the left offer welfare, foodstamps and so-called “affirmitive action” (reverse racism), those of us in the right offer role models. They offer a handout and we offer a hand up.

    There’s a huge difference: the left wants to keep colored folks down and on the liberal plantation. The left, in its way, tries desperately to keep slavery alive, a practice that was ended by a Republican president.

    We say, you’re free to make something of yourselves and pull yourselves up by your bootstraps and to take pride in their accomplishments, while the left wants to reward black folk simply because they’re black and scream “racism” every chance they get.

    The result? Republicans have some very impressive colored people in their ranks, while the Dems have race pimps like Jackson and Sharpton. You reap what you sow.

    I hope that clears it up for you. Maybe I’ll expand this into a post: Democrats – the party of slavery; Republicans – the party of opportunity.

  16. Wow, you can’t read instructions at all, can you? You just went on yet another anti-left ramble three sentences in. About the only support you seem to have for your party is the fact that a few black people got elected into office. Big whoop, now what about the poor? You cite nothing, yet expect me to be convinced?

    Try again, Psycheout. And this time, actually try.

  17. Its easier for people to point to skin and say “thats why your poor” than to actually address the underlying issues. I’ve lived in Baltimore my entire life. I’ve watched as the state poured billions into welfare programs and failing schools. Year in and year out, the same actions, expecting different results. The poor are basically held hostage in the city, as they can’t afford to move to a better life, and rather than do anything or even try anything to help, city leaders do the same thing and point to the suburbs saying “Its all the white people’s fault for moving out of the city”. This of course ignores the fact that the majority of blacks, hispanics, and asians that have fled the city as well. Baltimore City is a democrats dream in that there are only two classes of people (the poor and the elites), there are no challenges to their political authority, and there is no jobs what so ever (so that the poor remain poor and suckle at the teat of government hand outs their entire lives). Its painful to see my city today… Look at Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. They don’t want real dialog and solutions to race issues in this country. They want the status quo to continue. Racism to day is less about keeping people back as keeping people ignorant about what is truly holding them back. But I’m sure so white guy will tell me I have no clue what I’m talking about…

  19. I am reminded of the Charlie Daniels Band’s delightful parody of the hippie lifestyle, “Uneasy Rider:”

    “You may not believe it but this man’s a spy
    He’s an undercover agent for the FBI
    And he’s been sent here to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan.

    He was still jumping and holding on to his knee,
    But everybody else was looking and listening to me,
    And I just laid it on thicker and heavier as I went.
    “Would you believe this man has gone as far
    As peeling Wallace stickers off the bumpers of cars?
    And he voted for George McGovern for president!”

    McGovern was the 1972 Presidential candidate for the Democratic party. He lost to Nixon, a Republican. Now why, oh why, would the hippie refer to the same person as both a Democrat, and a hater of the KKK? Could it be that the KKK members were actually conservative to the point of having a knee-jerk reaction of opposing any and all forms of change?

    Please bear in mind that Charlie Daniels was a Southerner and was therefore intimately familiar with the mindset of the small Southern town. Also bear in mind that George Wallace, the Alabama governor infamous for the line, “Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” was a Republican. Both parties have their good candidates, and their bad candidates. Stop trying to tar all Democrats with the same brush.

And that Obama boy has certainly made a lot of progress in the Democrat party. Too bad only haters and snobs seem to do well on the left, though. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakan and OJ Simpson — all leftists. [Note: What, exactly do you mean by “getting to the top of their game” and “making a lot of progress?” Specifics, please, before you fling mud. Also, FDR got the US out of the Great Depression and helped us win WWII–and he was a liberal Democrat.]

    But you see, it’s not about race. These colored folks all made it to where they are today based on the content of their character and not on the basis of the color of their skin. [Note: Using the word “colored” to describe black people is incredibly racist, as it implies that whiteness is the “norm” and that all other races are not the “norm” due to having a darker skin color. If it’s not about race, stop using that word!]

    While those on the left offer welfare, foodstamps and so-called “affirmitive action” (reverse racism), those of us in the right offer role models. They offer a handout and we offer a hand up. [Again, specifics PLEASE. What, exactly, about right-wing politicians makes them good role models? How are you offering the poor “a hand up?”]

    There’s a huge difference: the left wants to keep colored folks down and on the liberal plantation. The left, in its way, tries desperately to keep slavery alive, a practice that was ended by a Republican president. [Note: Both parties have had good leaders and bad leaders. Just because Lincoln happened to be a Republican does not mean you can generalize his behavior and ethics to an entire political party. This is like finding someone who enjoys the Christian band Demon Hunter and stating that therefore, all Christians enjoy heavy metal. It’s ludicrous on the face of it.]

    We say, you’re free to make something of yourselves and pull yourselves up by your bootstraps and to take pride in their accomplishments, while the left wants to reward black folk simply because they’re black and scream “racism” every chance they get. [Note: Actually, the left has come to the realization that affirmative action is no longer necessary in its current form.]

    The result? Republicans have some very impressive colored people in their ranks, while the Dems have race pimps like Jackson and Sharpton. You reap what you sow. [Note: If you’re not a “race pimp,” as you put it, why, oh why are you referring to them as “colored?” “Colored,” like the N-word, has been socially unacceptable since the 60’s.]

    I hope that clears it up for you. Maybe I’ll expand this into a post: Democrats – the party of slavery; Republicans – the party of opportunity.”

    Stating your opinions is not proof. Generalizations are NOT PROOF. Ad hominem attacks are most definitely not proof. We want facts, we want statistics, and we want to see the exact sources you’re getting these conclusions from, because a lot of us get the feeling they mostly originate in your head.

  21. If you wanted to establish White supremacy in today’s age while appearing to do good, you could do no better than the Democratic party is doing now. Keep them dependent, make sure they see themselves as victims. Substitute money, ebonics and low academic standards and expectations in the place of a real education. Align with race-pimps like Jackson and Sharpton whose job is to ‘deliver’ the black vote. If they choose to see success as ‘actin white’ that makes your job easier.

    Republicans may not want to do things FOR black people, but more importantly they don’t do things TO them.

  23. Keep them dependent, make sure they see themselves as victims. Substitute money, ebonics and low academic standards and expectations in the place of a real education.

    Have you any proof? Last I checked, plenty were opposed to ebonics and affirmative action. As I remember it, welfare is not meant to be support for life, but a life support(meaning temporary life assistant).

    Republicans may not want to do things FOR black people, but more importantly they don’t do things TO them.

    In a logical manner, it’s easier to see then, why any would prefer to side with the Democrats– at least there’s hope and support, as opposed to the Bush Administration’s horrible handling of Hurricane Katrina. Yes, people didn’t evac, but FEMA totally missed and messed up. The part where FEMA trailers are incredibly unsafe to live in really cracked me up.

    Mind, I’m not even a democrat– I’m non-partisan. But hey, guess which party allows people to vote from outside?
