Why is the GOP a haven and 'the party of choice' for bigoted and racist groups?
Seems like every national election, code words and phrases are produced to secure these groups' votes. Not until the RP ceases this ploy, will it expand and become relevant in this century.

The racists in the south felt betrayed when LBJ supported and worked for civil rights. Prior to that the south voted solid democratic.
Now although the Republican party is against almost every policy that would benefit the majority of southern working people, because of their poor education and long held prejudice they, for the most part, will not vote for Democratic candidates

Actually the GOP used to be the party of the black people. Lincoln you might know was a Republican. But Hoover doubled crossed them in 1928 and they have been voting Democratic every since. He was director of the Red Cross during the Great Mississippi flood of 1927 and allowed blacks to be grossly abused. He persuaded Morton the head of the Tuckasegee Institution if he would down play his role he would champion black causes when he got elected president. He did the opposite.The Democratic Party used to be segregationist until Johnson signed the Civil Rights Bill of 1964.

The KKK is a bunch of Democrats. The Nation of Islam are a bunch of Democrats. The gay people and blacks fighting each other in California both vote for the Democrats. Rev. Wright is a Democrat. The feminists, the ones attacking Palin for daring to get out of the kitchen, vote for the Democrats.
What bigoted and racists groups do you speak of?

That is ridiculous.
First of all, racist organizations did not support the Republican party because they oppose the war in Iraq. They believe that it is a war for the Jews in Israel.
Second. Obama supports the racist bigoted discrimination against whites in job hiring and college admissions. How many times did the Republican party mention Affirmative Action while running against a black man who belonged to a church that gave an award to Louis Farrakhan? The Republican party not only did not use "code words" for racism but they didn't even mention the legitimate issue of racism against white people because they were so afraid of race baiters like you labeling them hate mongers.

The GOP was the party that supported the Civil Rights movement and the party that abolished slavery. Back in the 50's, ten out of ten KKK members were Democrats. That changed a lot and It's sad to see the what the GOP became. It is now the party of white, uneducated, racist and fundamentalist Christians.

Because that's your liberal strategy to brand us as bigots and racists, yet you liberals are the most intolerant hateful people on the planet.
The libs in the UK do the same thing to the Brits who want to preserve their British culture and stop the massive influx from radicals who try to blow them up and chant death to people in their streets.
Your reign is coming to an end. You've crossed a line.
Look at Electrob's answer -- you don't understand what bigotry is and you're calling other people uneducated.
And your "president" himself attended a racist church and is mentored by a disgusting racist radical like Rev. Wright who talks about the "White Devil". Are you seeing that you guys are intolerant idiots yet? No, you're not. You're hopelessy ignorant.

You may as well ask why the Church is a haven for kiddie fiddlers, spivs and tax cheats.
It seems to be a natural law, just like Boyle's law and the Fibonacci sequence.
