The liberals take advantage of the fact that you dont know your history and blame the klan's involvement on the Republicans.
Let's go back in time and you can google this info for yourself and know that I am not lying.
Aside from the multiple Klan members who have served in elected capacity within the high ranks of the Democrat Party, the political party itself has a lengthy but often overlooked history of involvement with the Ku Klux Klan. Though it has been all but forgotten by the media, the Democrat National Convention of 1924 was host to one of the largest Klan gatherings in American history. Dubbed the "Klanbake convention" at the time, the 1924 Democrat National Convention in New York was dominated by a platform dispute surrounding the Ku Klux Klan. A minority of the delegates to the convention attempted to condemn the hate group in the party's platform, but found their proposal shot down by Klan supporters within the party. As delegates inside the convention voted in the Klan's favor, the Klan itself mobilized a celebratory rally outside. On July 4, 1924 one of the largest Klan gatherings ever occurred outside the convention on a field in nearby New Jersey. The event was marked by speakers spewing racial hatred, celebrations of their platform victory in the Democrat Convention, and ended in a cross burning.

Let's take a look at some of the statistics from the bills you mentioned above.

I don't doubt that there are some within the Democrat party that are good, Constitution loving members of our government. There is a lot though that are eager to turn us into the next USSR. Let's take a look at some more examples of those equal rights activists on the far left, shall we?
Democrat Senators organized the record Senate filibuster of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Included among the organizers were several prominent and well known liberal Democrat standard bearers including:
- Robert Byrd, former senator from West Virginia, Kleagle (recruiter) and Exalted Cyclops of KKK
- J. William Fulbright, Arkansas senator and political mentor of Bill Clinton
- Albert Gore Sr., Tennessee senator, father and political mentor of Al Gore. Gore Jr. has been known to lie about his father's opposition to the Civil Rights Act.
- Sam Ervin, North Carolina senator of Watergate hearings fame
- Richard Russell, famed Georgia senator and later President Pro Tempore
Jesse Jackson: Jackson was the featured prime time speaker at the 2000 Democrat Convention. Jackson has a history of using anti-Semitic slurs and derogatorily calling New York City “Hymietown.” Jackson, a prominent self proclaimed "civil rights leader," is himself guilty of the same bigotry he dishonestly purports to oppose.
Mary Frances Berry: Berry is the Democrat former chairwoman of the US Commission on Civil Rights (USCCR). She purports herself to be an "independent" in her political affiliation in order to hold her job on the civil rights commission where partisan membership may not exceed 4 for either party, but is in fact a dedicated liberal Democrat who openly supported Al Gore for president and has given a total of $20,000 in personal contributions to the Democrat Party, Al Gore for President, and other Democrat candidates over the last decade. Berry is an open racist who is affiliated with the far-left Pacifica radio network, a group with ties to black nationalist causes. Berry once stated "Civil rights laws were not passed to protect the rights of white men and do not apply to them," indicating that she believes the USCCR should only look out for civil rights violations against persons of certain select skin colors.

P3 Billy McKinney: Former Democrat State Representative Billy McKinney of Georgia, who is also the father of former Democrat congresswoman Cynthia McKinney of the same state. During his daughter's failed 2002 reelection bid, McKinney appeared on television where he blamed his daughter's difficulties on a Jewish conspiracy. McKinney unleashed a string of anti-semitic sentiments, stating "This is all about the Jews" and spelling out "J-E-W-S." McKinney lost his own seat in a runoff a few weeks later.
At the end of the day, I'm sure we could sit here and sling shit back and forth. Christ knows there are enough racists and scumbags on both sides of the isle. But to sit there and say that the Democrat party has been the one sole champion of everyone not white? Really? That's a pretty ignorant comment. You sure you wanna stick with it?
As for the clean air and water acts... good for them?

Democrats no longer have democratic policies and republicans no longer have republican policies, the two parties are different from what they once were. Some people don't realize how much the party system has changed over the years.
For example, nowadays democrats and republicans are the same thing.
By the way- Ron Paul is the only candidate running in the GOP that has TRUE republican values, the rest are part of the new big government crowd.

And the history lesson on this thread is exactly why Martin Luther King Jr. was a republican. But, you always see the phony liberals pretending they weren't the ones running the auction blocks.

The conservatives are the new supporters of the KKK. The parties flipped. Originally the democratic party held the conservatives. Then the parties switched and conservatives moved to the republican party. In the beginning the democrats were not liberal. I've posted this same info. before. Look up the vote records of the republican's then and now.

You must be an old person, "rewriting the history books" is an antiquated concept. We have the internet now, the marketplace of free ideas. There is plenty of misinformation on the web but the good thing about that is it gets challenged and is open to criticism.
People don't like being lied to, and now they have a world of information at their fingertips. Cameras are everywhere and are catching events that would have went unnoticed before. Documents that would have been lost are can be copied countless times.
The truth is out there, it can no longer be hidden and people are gonna find it.

You are hallucinating.

The KKK didn't start supporting the Republican Party until the 1960s, after Democrats Roosevelt integrated federal hiring contract letting in the 1940s, Truman integrated the Armed Services in the early 1950s, and Kennedy and Johnson introduced what became the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in early 1963.

The past is dead, and in the 21st century, a 2011 poll of Mississippi Republicans found that 60 percent oppose interracial marriage. More than half don't even support that.

We know where the racists came from, and we know where they went.

You fail to mention that in the 1920s, the Republican Party was also infested with KKK in several states where Republicans were powerful -- especially in Republican Indiana and Oregon, where the KKK virtually controlled the governments.

The KKK in the South didn't start supporting the Republican Party until the 1960s, after Democrats Roosevelt integrated federal hiring contract letting in the 1940s, Truman integrated the Armed Services in the early 1950s, and Kennedy and Johnson introduced what became the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in early 1963.

This should read "The KKK didn't start supporting the Republican Party in the South until the 1960s..."

We know where the racists came from, and we know where they went.
