Do KKKs and white supremacist vote for GOP?

Can we apply the same "Van Jones must go" mentality to "tainted" votes? Or they might just think GOP is also too liberal so they won't vote for it?

    Actually they vote for both sides, depending on who comes closest to what they want at the time.

    Here are the prominent KKK members who have been in politics (details in links):

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ku_Klux_Klan_members_...

    Harry Truman (Democratic)

    Robert Byrd (Democratic)

    Edward Douglass White (Democratic)

    Warren G. Harding (Republican) (Note that of the group, there are severe arguments against his having been a member, especially considering his fierce support of civil right legislation)

    David Duke (Republican since 1989, Democratic until December, 1988)

    That's the reality of it.

    Still want to apply that?

    Even President Obama was a member of The New Party in Illinois, a branch of the Democratic Socialists of America, now defunct (public record, folks, don't believe me, go check).

    Taint?

    I want the taint OUT of my party.

    I'm a JFK Democrat. I am not a racist, I am NOT KKK and I am NOT a Socialist.

    IF you stand against those things, vote for the most ethical, LEAST Socialist Democratic candidate in our party you can find.

    I will be.

    It won't be President Obama. It will be some other Democrat.

    For the same reason, the blacks voted predominately Republican, prier to the early 60's, before Civil Rights, was signed into law, by LBJ..... The old southern Democrats, went to the Republican party, the blacks, went to the Democrat party... Reagan, being anti Civil Rights, left the Democrat party, for the Republican party, in the early 60's, as well... I know you some how missed it, but the party's, have traded places.... I didn't catch on, until the early 80's, after Reagan was elected... I even voted for the guy, his first term... But serenely not his second, or sense....

    You vote for whoever you want. But remember, Obama cane in with a $ 1 trillion deficet. His deficet is now over $ 4 trillion. Is this the stooge you want running our country? In another 4.5 years we'll be worse off and unable to get out of debt.

  • Most white supremacists think the government is in league with aliens to suck their brains out through anal probing. So they don't vote for fear of the government tracking them.

    The Extremist Groups, both Democrat (KKK) and Republican (Neo Nazi's) vote for the party that they feel will benefit them the most.
