Desperate to rewrite history in order to portray Republicans as raaacist!, the Left's latest foray into this effort to establish an Orwellian world involves completely ignoring the fact that the Klan was founded by Democratics, run by Democratics, and that Democratics were responsible for the old Jim Crow laws. Even though Democrat Senator Byrd was a member of the Klan for years, rising to the title of Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops of his local chapter, and even though he filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and despite the fact that in a 2001 television broadcast he repeatedly employed the term, "white niggers", the Left continues to insist that it is Republicans, not Democratics, who form the heart and soul of the KKK.
Democratics are the ones who truly care about equal rights, which explains why Democrat gov. George Wallace blocked the entrance to a school.
It is the Republicans' deep and abiding association with the KKK that accounts for why Senator Mary Landrover lost her reelection bid in Louisiana, and why Republicans now dominate in the South:
As the Los Angeles Times notes, “Democrats, starting in January, will not control a single governorship, U.S. Senate seat, or legislative chamber from the Carolinas to Texas.”
It's all because Republicans are raaacist! The new Leftist meme is that Democratics started abandoning the KKK in the 1960s and 1970s, and Republicans supplanted them. This explains why their Exalted Cyclops was still tossing around the nigger term in 2001, because after all, Democratics are all about inclusion.
It doesn't have to make sense, and it doesn't have to be either factual or logical; all that's necessary is to keep repeating it (and ideally, instilling it in our schools).
