    KKK Plans Confederate Flag Rally at SC Capitol

    KKK plans Confederate flag rally outside South Carolina statehouse - The Washington Post

    The KKK plans a rally for 7/18 outside the SC statehouse, to protest removal of the flag from the capitol.

    Well, I guess that makes it pretty clear what the Confederate Flag represents, if there was any doubt before.

    Well the KKK was originally started by disgruntled confederates. The white robes represented the ghosts of confederate soldiers. They were largely Democrats who modern day Republicans use to **** on modern day Democrats whenever they feel like "exposing" racism. Then they turn that all around, when it comes to defending the confederacy. They suddenly stop being Democrats and they're ancestors who can only be remembered through the flag. You can't make this up.

    Well'p, there goes any semblance of credibility the pro-flag position ever had.

    It doesn't even matter that these guys are fringe wackos who only make up roughly 1% of the pro-flag camp. They're all anyone's going to want to talk about from this point onwards.

    Way to go, guys!

    Not quite. They were started as a community defense org to protect against the looting of southern communities after the war. The white robes were to make them appear as ghosts to scare the superstitious of the time, and there were a lot of superstitious folks.

    They quickly evolved into the hate group we've seen since.

    Give that stupid meme a rest. You don't understand why the southern racists were Democrats? For one reason only, they would not be associated with the "party of Lincoln". That all changed when Johnson signed the Civil Rights act because apparently that was worse than freeing the slaves. Now the racists are all Republicans because the GOP speaks their language.
