Why do the KKK and other hate groups vote Democrat?
Is the Democratic party a hateful party?

You learned that in history class right? The Democratic party USED TO be a racist, conservative party born from the ruins of the southern confederacy. The original KKK was Democratic.
Around the 1900's, there was a shift in ideology as the old platform died out, and the Democrats became liberal, and accepting of all. The current KKK votes Republican. Black people vote Democratic, because the party helps them now.

In 1804, Thomas Jefferson ran as the first "Democratic-Republican." And in 1860, Lincoln ran as the first "Radical Republican." So, for the sake of helping you shoehorn your fat feet into that pair of ill-fitting shoes you've purchased, we will omit the prior 160 years of chattel slavery before there was a United States and a Constitution.
Now, what's your point again?

No. We are the lovers of politics. Eventually everybody votes for the Democrats. It makes no sense to keep voting for people that don't do their jobs and take and spend our tax dollars on whatever they want.

That's an excellent question. Clearly the Democratic party is against their interests, so why any of them would vote Democrat is beyond me.

Isn't it time to realize its not the fifties anymore? And neither party was overwhelmingly in favor of complete equality of the races. It's not like any side can claim a halo on this.
Update your calendar. It's very old.

You are right.
In the 1950's-1960's, almost all black Americans were Republicans. Why? From its founding in 1854 as the anti-slavery party until today, the Republican Party has championed freedom and civil rights for blacks. And as one pundit so succinctly stated, the Democrat Party is as it always has been, the party of the four S’s: slavery, secession, segregation and now socialism.
It was the Democrats who fought to keep blacks in slavery and passed the discriminatory Black Codes and Jim Crow laws. The Democrats started the Ku Klux Klan to lynch and terrorize blacks. The Democrats fought to prevent the passage of every civil rights law beginning with the civil rights laws of the 1860s, and continuing with the civil rights laws of the 1950s and 1960s.
Yet, diabolically, every election cycle, Democrats blame Republicans for the deplorable conditions in the inner-cities, then incite blacks to cast a protest vote against Republicans.
Democrats have been running our inner-cities for the past 30 to 40 years, and blacks are still complaining about the same problems. More than $7 trillion dollars have been spent on poverty programs since Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty with little, if any, impact on poverty.

That seems unlikely. The KKK for one is a Conservative Christian white supremacist group, it is unlikely to support a party overrun by minorities, not to mention the gays.
