    You seem to have forgotten that in those days the KKK was the paramilitary wing of the Democratic Party. Today’s equivalent is the BLM.

      You are not only being hyperbolic you are shockingly wrong to equate a long standing terrorist organization that’s members held seats of power and committed multiple acts of murder to some protesters calling for equal treatment from law enforcement than white people get.

      Anyone who doesn’t know that the southern Dixiecrats were racist and had kkk ties has no sense of history. Also the “Party of Lincoln” would certainly imply a far more African American friendly political party than what we have today.

      Actually, Matt, with all due respect, you’re totally full of shit. Read a history book once in a while.

      As for comparing the Klan to Black Lives Matter, that is what as known in above-75-IQ circles as a false equivalency. The two outfits differ in an astonishing number of ways. For example, the Klan is best known for lynching people. Lots and lots of people, mostly blacks, Catholics and Jews. BLM hasn’t lynched anybody. I know it’s popular these days for morons who are completely unburdened by the truth to look at every killing of a police officer as a BLM action, but there isn’t a wiff of reality there. You might as well say BLM is the “New Black Panther Party,” an organization crippled by the fact that it does not exist. Also, the Klan was highly organized with hundreds of thousands of white male shitkickers reporting to a well-defined hierarchy. BLM isn’t organized at all; there’s no Grand Imperial Klingon running things, or even suggesting things. I suspect that any dozen random self-defined “members” of BLM couldn’t even agree on where to have lunch.

      You’re right, more or less, in the fact that there was an association between southern Democrats and some western Democrats and the Klan. This association, for example, gave us President Harry S. Truman, who was a Klansman. Then Harry screwed the pooch and integrated our armed forces. The southern Democrats — the so-called Dixiecrats — left the Democrats in a fit of pique over the horrors of racial integration that were supported by much of the rest of the Democratic Party. Today, we call these Sons of The Ku Klux Klan “the Republican Party.”

      And now, thanks to Putin’s assistance, this far-right wing take-over of the GOP is pretty much complete. There is no Party of Lincoln or Party of Nixon or Party of Reagan. There is just the Party of Trump. The racist, hate-mongering, bigoted Donald Trump.

      Kinda sounds like the Klan, doesn’t it?
