Thanks for the research and a BRILLIANT post of material many conservatives are aware of. The reminder is important for many, though. And, of course, the Party of racism objects.
A distant relative of my husband's served in the Lincoln Administration and was very close to the President. Those brave American patriots who served in Washington at the outset and for the duration of the Civil War were Republican and decidely conservative. It would also have been impossible during those trying years to miss the deeply felt Christian convictions of our nation's honorable 16th President, who remains among the most admired leaders this country has known. He made a great first Republican President!
It's amazing the level of denial liberals and leftists are willing to display to try to hide their shameful separatist, racist, and embarrassingly elitist roots, which were KKK to the core for nearly a century-and-a-half. Maybe seven score and ten years would be appropriate, given Lincoln's famous use of the biblical measure for emphasis at Gettysburg on the once deadly, but now transformed, pastoral battlegrounds in a neighboring County from where I grew up.

Democrats foster feelings of hoplessness and uselessness which has now become the impelling force for the black culture. Democrats have convinced black people they are victims. When an economy suffers, minorities are always hardest hit. Democrats through Keynsian economic practices have destroyed this economy.
Democrat decimation of Black people continues to this day through their party platform of abortion on demand.

And they scream "fairness" and "tolerance" and become very violent toward anyone that has an opposing point of view! What a bunch of hypocrites!

Both parties can be shown to be racist in the past. Anyone who bothers to look into the 20th century Klan records, which are quite extensive due to a number of court cases, finds that once you adjust for their hatred of Catholicism, which political party the person belongs to is inconsequential to membership.
Current Republicans use the race card daily. That is what matters. Current Republicans regularly visit Bob Jones University. They've been playing the race card, successfully, since Kennedy.

hey british dude maybe you have never met kkk members like i have but you lack some fundamental understanding of them and racism. first while there was racism in the dems earlier. they have a black man as theri candidate. how many blacks have won nomination in the republican party? zero. you also neglect to mention that it was democrat lbj who introduced and signed the civil rights act. what is important is now. you see the kkk can change cities and parties and they have. they are now in the republican party. how can you tell by the rhetoric. bushs campaing put out the rumor that mccain had a black baby during his 2000 primary campaign in south carolina. kkk tactic. but we dont have to go that far. fighting against spanish , women and minorities are currently targets of them.. minorities arent as ignorant or biased as you think . if the platform reflected values of those groups they would get the vote.Source(s): usa is my country and support of democrats goes a lot farther than race. the republicans started the first depression . they started this lesser depression . they are destroying america.

This was such a waste of time and effort. I'm not even a democrat, I'm a republican, but even I am condemning your argument. Parties evolve, values change. Don't give us a history lesson. It's about NOW.
And what about FDR and his wife who held the Marian Anderson concert which was the first, integrated government-held event?

great knowledge if history i applaud you. but from the 60's on you are pretty much refering to southern democrats or dixiecrats. who in the 80's.became known as reagan democrats. we now refer to them as the modern republican party. i would have been a republican myself in the 50's. but this is now and though ideology has changed hands, mine have not just from reading the history of a part of the party that switched sides

The Conservatives created the KKK.
