Why are democrats giving a pass to Ralph Northam? is it because the democrats are the party of the KKK?

that is right. the democrats founded the KKK.


Many more Democrats calling for his resignation then Republicans even saying a negative word against King for his racist comments


Southern democrats and republicans are the party of the KKK, Northern democrats and republicans were not. The Democratic party did not start the KKK. It was Southern conservatives. The KKK was not started by the Democrratic party. The KKK was formally and officially welcomed into the Republican Party in 1948. Anybody claiming that Republicans are not sapported by the KKK is lying… “The Democratic Party, in the first half of the 20th century, was home to two broad, competing constituencies: southern whites with abhorrent views on race, and white progressives and African Americans in the north, who sought to advance the cause of civil rights. The party struggled with this conflict for years, before ultimately siding with an inclusive, liberal agenda. “The result was a dramatic shift in both parties. After “Dixiecrats” began their exodus in 1948, and in the wake of LBJ signing the Civil Rights Act in 1964, the Republican Party welcomed segregationists who no longer felt comfortable in the Democratic Party. Indeed, in 1964, Republican presidential nominee Barry Goldwater boasted of his opposition to the Civil Rights Act, and made it part of his platform. “It was right around this time when figures like Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond made the transition – leaving the progressive, diverse, tolerant Democratic Party for the conservative GOP. “In the years that followed, Democrats embraced their role as the party of inclusion, while Republicans became the party of the “Southern Strategy,” opposition to affirmative action, campaigns based on race-baiting, vote-caging, discriminatory voter-ID laws, and politicians like Helms, Thurmond, and others.”
