About Those Democrat Party-KKK Associations

Posted by on Mar 15, 2012 at 8:48 am

Most folks are semi-aware of the late Sen. Byrds’ connections to the Ku Klux Klan,  but it seems those roots run deep among the Democrats. It was the Democrats, after all, who  created the Klan in the post-Civil War period termed Reconstruction.

Today there is an article in the Charlotte Observer about the Democrat party disowning two of their own for their active racial activities.

But it’s the video where he casually talks about “shooting” and starving black South Africans – and kidnapping the country’s president – that caught the attention of people who track white supremacists.

Hollar, who is running for the N.C. Senate from Catawba County, is one of two Democratic candidates whom state party officials have taken the unusual step of denouncing.

The other is Carrol Crawford, a former Ku Klux Klan leader once convicted of burning a cross in Charlotte. He’s running for Rowan County commissioner.
Nothing to see here. Move along. At least they finally denounced them but I have to wonder how long they had been active for Democrats in the state before being called out on it.
One other cute nugget is the defense one of them used.

When a reporter called him back, Hollar said, “I believe in (Republican presidential candidate) Ron Paul. … OK, you just need to stop calling me.”

    Of course the ties between Democrats and the KKK run deep– hell, the Democrats (of the “old South”) INVENTED the KKK. And the Democrats of the present day have NO problem being assoicated with the “new KKK”, known as MUSLIMS. You see, MUSLIMS aren’t just “anti Semitic”– they are ALSO RACIST as HELL– don’t believe me? JUST ASK ANY BLACK Libyan.

    If you are shocked by this comment, you haven’t been paying attention…

    democraticunderground.com assures us that these are Tea Party activists crossing party lines to discredit the Democrats.

    Any takers that Obama will issue an endorsement of one of these nutbags? I honestly think he’d be that stupid and mouth off without knowing their horrific history.
