Okay, let me ask this question of all you Indiana folks who want to make Indiana a state "by the people, for the people" and not a plutocracy state government operated primarily for rich people and corporations: do you remember back during the 2008 U.S. Presidential election , and again during the recent 2012 U.S. Presidential elections when Republiklans were going around in a lather and demanding that Obama present them with a certified copy of his birth certificate?

Well, now is the time for you to start contacting your Indiana Republiklan Party, your Republiklan Governor, or even your elected Republiklan Senators and Representatives within the Indiana General Assembly and ask these elected officials if their grandparents and great-grandparents were members of the Indiana Klu Klux Klan during the 1920s

Slavery is gone. You were not a slave. I never owned a slave. I do not think that slavery was morally right, but I am also tired of hearing about it. The KKK is a white hate group, of which, I am not a member. There are plenty of hate groups out there that fit any ethnicity. If you are obsessed with hate groups, let's talk about all of them, and not just the one that fits your agenda.

Or, are there any black hate groups?

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?
And seriously, is he talking about Repbulicans who aren't even FROM THIS STATE and have NO FAMILIAL TIES HERE? What about those? I was born and raised in MASSACHUSETTS, easily the biggest bastion of liberal idiots on the planet. How do you explain that?

Ironically, our President has failed to thoroughly address these groups and make tangible changes that are supposed to 'benfit' them all.

Interesting fail.

Well obviously living in the borderline sanity of the mid-west has brought you around a little.

I didn't need to be brought around, though. Liberalism is one of the reason I left that state to begin with!

You are merely excising the informal fallacy of "moving the goal posts" instead of following the thread of this topic of discussion...

Indiana Republiklans (and Indianapolis in particular) played central roles within the second revival of the Klu Klux Klan across the midwest and northern U.S. states during the 1920s, recruiting hundreds of thousands of new Klansmen.

Perhaps what most distinguished this second Indiana Republiklan Klu Klux Klan movement from the original, post-Civil War KKK (aside from the larger membership base of the 1920s), is that many of the Indiana Republiklan Klansmen were motivated to join the KKK in part by the 1915 silent film "The Birth of A Nation" which used theatrical license to portray the Klansmen of the 1860s-1870s in this movie as both wearing white robes and burning the large fiery crosses as a KKK ritual --- this story devices were dreamed up by the production team of "The Birth of A Nation" to give that film more visual punch.

The second revival of Klu Klux Klan in Indiana is largely associated with Indiana Republiklans...

Elmer does not care.
As long as he & his ilk are stuck in that period, that's all that matters to them.
It brings to them some sort of comfort and justification as to why they are such losers in the current times.

When the KKK Republicans controlled the Indiana General Assembly, the state motto was "The Cross Burners of America"...just saying.
