Actually you are partially correct. It was started in Pulaski TN. It was started by 6 very liberal college people. It started out as sort of a Frat group intended to hurt no one and wasn't against any race. Simple as that. Then the southern Democrats picked it up and changed it in protest to the North winning the war. Only after the growth of the movement to completely change the America to a color blind society the movement started to gain strength and support republican candidates. It actually become strongest in Indiana in the 50s and 60s. Then stretched from east to west across the country to about 1.5 members. It has had 4 peaks in history and since the last peak it is down to about 5 thousand members. Which does not include the different militia groups in the US. The only reason they haven't been completely disbarred is because of freedom of speech laws. But if ever organized as the original organization again, they will not be able to hold onto any money raised because multimillions of dollars of back taxes owed and tax fraud. That is why we have splinter groups today to keep from loosing any funding they may raise. To answer one of my first questions the 6 people that started the KKK were 6 very liberal democrats.

The modern day clan is opposed to homosexuality, abortion, believes America should be a Christian nation (as opposed to one that is based on religious freedom), wants to protect the white race, believes that every household should own a gun, and it aligns itself with the neo-Nazi movement.

Any of that sound like modern day democrats to you?

The KKKK claims that they are not racist, but rather they are "racialist." This means that they do not necessarily hate any one particular race based on skin color, but they love the White race and have "White pride." Most of their ideas are centered on this concept. Therefore, the first and foremost thing that the KKKK stands for is the White Race. They say that the White Race is the "irreplaceable hub of our Nation, our Christian faith, and the high levels of Western culture and technology" ("Intro to the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan"). The KKKK believes that the only way to achieve their goals is to have a United States with all White people living in it, and there should be absolutely no integration.

Another thing that the KKKK stands for is "America first." This means that they think the interests of the United States should be put before those of any other nation. It is basically a policy of protectionism because the KKKK also does not want any foreign influence or interests in the United States. Another aspect of the "America first" policy is that there should be a foreign policy of military non-intervention ("Intro to the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan"). The KKKK does not want to get involved with anything "non-American."

The KKKK's stand on foreign aid and trade relates to their "America first" policy. They believe that all foreign aid should be stopped immediately because while the United States' tax dollars are being given to other countries, Americans themselves are still needy ("The program"). The KKKK believes that the money being spent on foreign aid should be kept within the United States and should be put into things like Social Security and Medicare. As for trade, the KKKK believes that NAFTA and GATT should be done away with because they take jobs away from American workers and will put "millions upon millions" into poverty ("The program").

Any of that sound even remotely like modern day democrats?

See anything that is like the democratic party in any of this?

Christianity is an important part of the KKKK’s ideas and beliefs. In fact, one of the things that the KKKK claims is that the United States was formed as not only a White Nation, but as a Christian nation. They quote James Madison saying this about the founding of the United States on their web page ("The program"):

We have staked the future of all our political institutions upon the capacity
of mankind for self-government upon the capacity of each and all of us to
govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the

Ten Commandments of God.

Therefore, the KKKK’s views on abortion and homosexuality reflect those of the Bible. They are against abortion and believe it should be illegal unless the mother’s life is endangered or the woman was raped or a victim of incest. And since the United States is a "Christian nation" and the Bible is against homosexuality, there should be a national law against it. They also believe church and state should no longer be separated, making prayer in public schools legal. Because the KKKK is so heavily involved in Christianity, they often light a large wooden cross on fire at their rallies. They say that they are not desecrating the cross but rather they are illuminating it and the "truth and the light" of Christianity ("Intro to the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan").

So yeah, the democrats started the KKK, but they grew up and moved on. Republicans, however, have adopted 100% of their philosophy.

Any other dumb questions?

True. I don't take up for the belief system of any of those groups, but they have the right to exist. Just don't think the should exist under the banner of the KKK because of the carnage and damage done by the brand. If ant-war protesters are allowed to exists, so should any group. Some of the anti-Vietnam War protesters that actually killed people in the 70s have never been arrested. I think any group that performs any kind of violent protest or violent civil disobedience should be disbanded. But civil protests is any American right.

Agreed. We may not always like what they have to say, but we have to defend their right to say it.

Knows, you've always been a sick attention seeking dumb ass, but some days, you just top yourself.

Maybe that's because nobody else will "top" you.

No but somebody may poop on him. What is his fascination with his own crap anyway? Sounds like a sick sexual fantasy he might have.

Don't compare anti-war protesters to the KKK. That's dumber than appointing a war criminal president. And as long as those filthy pigs that killed and injured them in places like Kent State are permitted to walk the streets, there won't be any success in prosecuting the rare cases violence that did erupt among them.

There is a difference in a civil protest and a violent protest of any type. I don't care who protest and for what that right is guaranteed in our constitution. No one for any reason has the right to violently protest anything. If they want to be violent join they military and do something constructive with that pent up anger. Innocent people and property being injured, killed or destroyed doesn't do anything for any cause. It just defeats what they are doing and serves no purpose. And excuse me the KKK is no worse or better than some green peace or anti Vietnam protesters killing or injuring people. So take that comment of yours elsewhere because any kind of violent behavior should not be tolerated.

The KKK gained notoriety for hanging blacks and gay people from trees. Greenpeace and anti-war protesters are known for peacefully bringing about change. The violence among them are exceptions to the rule. For the KKK, violence is the norm. You can't compare the two. Burning a flag is a symbol of the freedom it stands for. Burning a black man is a symbol of the stupidity that ended the KKK. You'd be more accurate to compare the KKK to al Qaeda or an ignorant right-wing militia than to any domestic political activist organization.
