Indiana was infested with the Klu Klux Klan during its second reconstruction (1915-1925)--- and Indiana was ground zero for the Klu Klux Klan...

It has been published that as many as one of every three adult white male residents of Indiana during the early to mid 1920s belonged to the Klu Klux Klan (along with many of their wives and other female family members) and Protestant ministers were provided with free memberships within the Klan.

The grandsons and granddaughters of today's Indiana Republican Party leadership are likely the descendants of Indiana Klan members.

If you are still worried about the KKK that's your problem, not mine. Since you seem to be so interested in what I am a descendant of, I will say that I am a descendant of Americans. A family that came to the New World around 1642. A family that has fought for this country in every major conflict since arriving on American soil. I know none of this entitles me to anything, however if a family member belonged to the KKK nearly 100 years ago, it doesn't have anything to do with me. For example, it is likely that 100 years ago, your family was hard working, and striving to achieve the American Dream honestly. Now do you see how much a family can change in 100 years?

Sadly this is true and how they learned to be mobsters.

I never owned any slaves, and I have never benefited financially from any of my ancestors owning any slaves. That being said, why are you so interested in connecting me with slavery? Are you a Democrat? If so, I guess we should connect you with the founding of the KKK in Indiana.

Typical liberal. I have a different view on things so I must be demonized and accused of something that I wasn't even aware of, nor have any interest in.

You are mistaken. Sorry. During the early 1900s, the Klan had a few government strongholds in IN. Indy being the strongest, and it was Democrat public officials that kept it strong.

Can't you do a Google search? You are a typical lying republican. Facts are facts. The KKK has been republican since Grand Dragon DC Stephenson in the 1920's. Read through any list of talking points for the KKK and the Republican Party and you will find that they are virtually the same. Any educated person knows the truth about Indiana.

You should definitely be on the "list" because with your self deceit and willingness to lie, you are definitely a sociopath and probably have a range of crimes and perversions under your belt.

This type of self delusion is very prevalent in sex offenders. Please get help before you rape, molest, or kill any more small children.

Up to a third of Hoosiers were KKK. Republicans.

Governors , mayors, legislators, etc. Republicans.

Sad history of Indiana which was written by Republicans.

The tea party is very similar.
