David Duke. Yep those liberal KKK members choose a far right Republican to be their leader. And Republicans dislike the KKK so much they elected Duke to Congress.
You get dumber everyday, FloriDUH.
The KKK has more in common with the Tea Party than they do the Democrats. If you think today's KKK is not right wing, the you are dumber than I thought - and that would be very GD dumb.
How did you make the leap that the Tea Party =racism here. No idiotic claims that you didn't say they were racist you just said they have a lot more in common with the KKK -meaning exactly what.

You state the KKK is right wing implying exactly what Dave-this is were you want to waltz in and claim someone is misunderstanding you as you are not saying ALL Republicans are racist.

Just racist are Republicans? That doesn't work as you have since denied the claim that NO Democrats are racist.(NJ's claim that racist Dems become Reps)

You are a total moron, Dave.

You do know Lincoln was Republican and it was the Dems who fought changes that allowed blacks more freedoms after the war.
It is obvious that you are wanting to stay willfully ignorant so you may continue to stick with an unsupported viewpoint.
You do know that Lincoln's Vice President was a Democrat Andrew Johnson who was impeached by republicans because of his Reconstruction policies to include blacks under the same guaranteed freedoms in the U S Constitution?

would that be left revisionist history? Johnson was impeached for resisting the implementation of the reconstruction policies.

Johnson became the first president to be impeached by the House of Representatives when, in February 1868, the Republican-controlled House charged the Democrat Johnson with 11 articles of impeachment for "high crimes and misdemeanors."

Johnson had earned the ire of Congress for his staunch resistance to implementing its Civil War reconstruction policies. At that time, the War Department was the federal agency responsible for carrying out reconstruction programs in the war-ravaged southern states and when Johnson fired Stanton, the agency's head, the House retaliated with calls for his impeachment.

Might want to check out your history here.

"Within six weeks of taking office, Johnson had offered proclamations of general amnesty for most former Confederates, and his initially stricter plans for high-ranking government and military officers quickly dissolved. Johnson also vetoed legislation that extended civil rights and financial support for the former slaves. Congress was able to override only a few of his vetoes, setting the stage for a confrontation between Congress and the president"

You're 1 dumass person! No, I didn't say all republicans were racist or, all democrats aren't racist. I racism still exists in the South. The racist could have no political affiliation at all. Could be independent, Republican, or Democrat. Green or Tea party for that matter. You have a serious problem with comprehension. Read your Republican buddies posts. 90% of them are racist &, if you can't recognize that, it's probably because you're racist yourself.

I said the kkk has more in common with the Tea Party.

The KKK "Bringing a Message of Hope and Deliverance to White Christian America!"

The following are listed as part of the KKK platform

Read these & tell me these are also shared by most Tea Party members.

Tell me which ones do not paint them as right wing.

Stop all Foreign Aid Immediately
Abolish ALL discriminatory affirmative action programs
Put American troops on our border to STOP the flood of illegal aliens
Abolish all anti-gun laws and encourage every adult to own a weapon
Drug testing for welfare recipients
Repeal the Federal Reserve Act.
Balance the budget
Rehabilitate our public school system.
A flat income tax should be introduced to allow for the funding of community, state and federal projects.
Abortion should be outlawed except to save the mother’s life or in case of rape or incest.
We support a national law against the practice of homosexuality
Restoring individual freedom to Christian America.
We want to see the National Education Association and the Child protective agencies put out of business.
We support state sovereignty resolutions

Evolve lacks any meaning when used in that sense.

It is like saying "I am planning to become"

President Obama spent months in 2010 warning Americans about the 'threat' to democracy posed by conservative groups right at the time the IRS began targeting these groups.

(Timeline and quotes listed in article.)

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788...

Says Kimberley Strassel of WSJ who wrote the article,“Yet we are to believe that a few rogue IRS employees just happened during that time to begin systematically targeting conservative groups?"

...That's what they WANT us to believe. The WSJ and Strassel proved why we shouldn't.
