There are some frightening similarities between the current Republican Party and the KKK. And right wingers, don't get mad. Just admit that this is true:
1)The KKK and the GOP are both very strong advocates for state rights.l
2)The KKK and the GOP both hate Black anti-racist watchdog groups like the NAACP. also, the KKK and the GOP HATE black anti white racism fighters like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, John Lewis, etc.
3)The KKK and the GOP both hate social safety net programs because they benefit some black people
4) The GOP and the KKK are both passionately against a woman's right to choose (But the KKK is at least honest enough to admit that their opposition to abortion is soley because white babies are aborted. KKK admits that they could give a damn about black and hispanic babies being aborted, something that the GOP is too dishonest to admit)
5) The KKK and the GOP both passionately hate President Obama, and call him names like "Sambo,Stymie, communist, socialist, fried chicken eater, etc."
6) The KKK and the GOP both hate public schools (primarily because they believe that it gives black males and white females too much of an opportunity to date)
7) The KKK and the GOP both hate labor Unions (both are also opposed to the minimum wage
8) The KKK and the GOP both passionately hate LIBERALS,, which needs no further explaining.
9) The KKK and the GOP both admire Ronald Reagan (KKK endorsed Ronald Reagan in both 1980 and in 1984)
10) The KKK and the GOP both claim to be staunch Christians (Of course, here is the contingency -- all the Biblical Characters, and Jesus, have to be white, like in the movies e.g. Passion of Christ, King of King, etc.)
And these are only a few of the very disturbing similarities between the KKK and the GOP. Anyone want to add some more?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indiana_Klan

At the height of its power the Klan had over 250,000 members, which was over 30% of state's white male population. The highest concentration was around the central part of the state.[2] Klan membership was discouraged in some parts of the state; in New Albany, city leaders denounced the Klan and discouraged residents from joining.[5] Other cities, including Indianapolis, were almost completely controlled by the Klan, and election to public office was impossible without their support. Street fights occurred in Indianapolis between the Klan members and minority groups. Statewide, estimates of native white male Indiana Klan membership ranged from 27 to 40%.[6]

The Klan had a large budget, based on a percentage of membership fees and dues. With more than 50,000 dues-paying members in Indianapolis, the Klan had access to tens of millions of dollars. A large part of these funds went to helping the poor, but millions were also poured into bribing public officials, paying off enemies, purchasing weapons, and contributing to political campaigns.[1][7]

In 1922, Klansmen in the Indiana General Assembly passed a bill that created a Klan Day at the Indiana State Fair, complete with a nighttime cross burning. Governor Warren T. McCray vetoed the bill, beginning his public resistance to the Klan; he was the highest-ranking official to oppose them. The same year Edward Jackson, a Klan member who had been elected as the Secretary of State, granted the Klan a state charter. McCray demanded the charter be revoked because the leaders of the Klan did not reveal themselves to sign the document. Jackson refused to revoke the charter. Stephenson ordered Jackson to offer McCray a $10,000 bribe to try to end his anti-Klan stance. McCray was personally wealthy and he refused the bribe.[8]

Unable to bring McCray to their side, the Klan leaders worked to uncover dirt on McCray to force him out office. They uncovered loans solicited by McCray in a questionable way. Because the solicitations were sent by mail, they were subject to federal mail fraud laws. The Klan leaders used their influence to have McCray tried, convicted, and imprisoned for mail fraud, forcing him to resign from office in 1924.[9] Edward Jackson was elected to the governor's office that fall.

Sister Aimee- The very first comparison you throw out, wasn't a very good start at convincing me of anything. You see, you accuse Republicans of supporting state rights, but it seems to me that Democrat controlled, liberal states lead the way with state laws that are not in accordance with federal laws. Federal immigration laws, and legalizing marijuana are just a couple of examples.

You are telling me to get on with it? But one of your fellow democrats started this topic by saying that all republicans in Indiana are descendants of KKK members from the 1920s. Who is living in the past now?

The Democratic Party still had the likes of Robert "KKK"Byrd until the old fart passed, they praised him until the end, they do the same with Al Gore who's father was a raciest. The Democratic Party is now and forever the true KKK, they have kept the blacks in chains with their failed social programs, public housing
Welfare, abortion clinics, look where this has got them, over 70 percent unwed mothers, high school drop out rate is outrageous, highest unemployment in the nation, baggy pants, tattoos, thug life, rap music, no responsibility's, no father figures and etc..
When over 90 percent vote for a so called "black" president who has done nothing in four years and who is responsible for their further demise we have real issues.
Yes the KKK is alive and well not only in Indiana but the Democratic Party and they have a new grand wizard, Barrak Hussein Obama .

Oh, and Miss Aimee...I forgot to mention that in the little wiki story you copied and pasted, your anti klan hero, Gov Warren McCray, was a republican.

And when you posted your #8 reason that the GOP and the KKK are the same, well....read it for yourself...

"8) The KKK and the GOP both passionately hate LIBERALS,, which needs no further explaining."

You are correct, it needs no explanation. Thanks for the laugh.

The kooks hate liberals and the liberals hate kooks. It has been true since Jesus' time and he was crucified by the fore runners of the tea party.

Nah, You don't have to be KKK to dislike Liberals, nor even Republican. I actually know some very conservitive Democrat union members, that vote Democrat because the union says to, and they do not like liberals. It is quite equal opportunity.

I have never seen any African-Americans wearing slave chains here --- do your Indiana Klu Klux GOPeers actually still make African-Americans wear chains in Indiana?

Sad history of Indiana which was written by Republicans.
The tea party is very similar.
I think that goes a long toward explaining the political climate today with the Indiana Grand Ole Klu Klux Klan Party....

Hey, speaking of Republican Klu Klux Klan douchebaggery, why do you suppose it is that that the Republican Indiana state government and the Indianapolis city government has not ever passed resolutions making the historically significant houses of Republican Indiana Klu Klux Klan Grand Dragon D.C. Stephenson and his 1925 rape/murder vicitm Madge Oberholtzer as historical sites (it was the conviction of Stephenson for the rape and murder of Oberholtzer that brought down the Indiana and national Klu Klux Klan movements during the mid to late 1920s)...?

You can still view these houses of Google Maps today, but there are not ant state historical markers anywhere near these properties!
