I see that the new talking point is that the Klan was started 150 years ago. Funny how the next 100 years of the Klan as the Democrat Party paramilitary arm right through the 1960's is ignored. Who else enforced Jim Crow, kept blacks from polling places, etc., etc. and kept Democrat Party hegemony alive in Dixie and border states.

And what Klan there is today is minuscule nobodies with zero power.

Really?

For having no power, they certainly carry a lot of weight with news organizations.

If you want to go a little deeper, you'll see that the "Democratics" that supported the Klan and White Supremacy, left the Democratic Party and moved to the Republican Party in the 1970's.
That's why Imperial Wizard David Duke, ran as a Republican, that's their party now.
Personally, I wasn't a Democrat in 1870, but I have been a Democrat since 1970.
It's really about where the parties stand now.
Just look at the pictures of their national conventions, Big Clue There.
