Do yourself a favor, stop watching revisionist history videos from Praeger "University" and open a history book. Then look in the index for "Southern Strategy." Yes, at the time of the civil war, the racist South were aligned with the Democratic party. Nixon changed that. Today, the racist South is aligned with the Republican party, and today's Republican party (esp. the Trump incarnation of it) has no legitimate right to castigate Democrats for being the party of the KKK. I GUARANTEE that EVERY member of today's racist KKK are registered voters of the Republican party. Can't seem to find the story now, but I could swear I read recently how four members of Congress (Republicans, of course) have been outed as members of the KKK.
