    That's an excellent point. And to go even further back in history , it was the Republican Party who advocated for freeing black slaves, while the Democratic Party fought to keep blacks in slavery.

    And the Republican Party that opened federal employment to AAs. And Democrat Woodrow Wilson who reversed that policy.

    The 1924 Democratic National Convention couldn't decide on a candidate to run against Coolidge. The convention was split between Al Smith and William McAdoo. McAdoo was a big KKK guy. After over 100 votes the convention chose non-entity Davis who got his ass kicked by Coolidge in the general direction. The Klan played a huge role in that election. We haven't really come that far.

    Speaking of silent Cal:

    “The college of that day had a very laudable desire to get students, and having admitted them, it was equally alert in striving to keep them and help them get an education , with the result that very few left of their own volition and almost none were dropped for failure in their work. There was no marked exodus at the first examination period, which was due not only to the attitude of the college but to the attitude of the students, who did not go there because they wished to experiment for a few months with college life and be able to say thereafter they had been in college, but went because they felt they had need of an education , and expected to work hard for that purpose until the course was finished. There were few triflers.”
    ― Calvin Coolidge, Autobiography of Calvin Coolidge

    The Democrats, led by former Ku Klux Klan member Senator Robert Byrd, also filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964 for months, then a majority of them voted against it.

    Nothing to see here folks, move along.

    I can't speak for your esteemed law enforcement colleague but he's likely referring to the fact that KKK has been Democrat from the start.

    Historically there is something to that idea. It's clearly not true now though. I'm not that much of a historian but my guess is that the shift began back in the 60s with the Civil Rights Movement.

    That's the typical reaction of the mainstream media to facts that don't support their agenda and their narrative. Move along, take what we say as the truth, and don't ask questions.

    If I did that, wouldn't I simply delete any posts I didn't agree with?

    That would be like illegally tearing down statues on public property.....oh, wait, that's okay now.
