The Democratic Party Still Loves To March



This is a picture of the Klan marching during he 1924 Democratic Convention. The Klan played a major role in Democratic politics then.

Racist, hateful maniacs still do.
In Madison Square Garden, New York City, from June 24 to July 9, a dispute during came up revolving around an attempt by non-Klan delegates, led by Forney Johnston of Alabama, to condemn the organization for its violence in the Democratic Party’s platform.

But Klan delegates defeated the platform plank in a series of floor debates.

To celebrate, tens of thousands of hooded Klansmen rallied in a field in New Jersey, across the river from New York City. This event, known subsequently as the “Klanbake”, was also attended by hundreds of Klan delegates to the convention, who burned crosses, urged violence and intimidation against African Americans and Catholics, and attacked effigies of Smith.

More on the convention and the role of the Klu Klux Kan here and here.
And what is a Klux? Merriam-Webster hasn't a klue.

Democrats are madder today than when Republicans took their slaves away.

And you won't convince any democrat to day of that. 'we changed'.
No, they haven't, they're just too blind to see it.

It's a special kind of social blindness that afflicts them. Or a special kind of stupid.

The masked antifas and these? They really are the same group, just on different ends of ths slippery slope. Or... maybe some slippery slopes... there isn't a difference about where one is on it. All the same.

Exactly why you shouldn't be involved in ANY earthly politics... except Don's.

Let this be your catalyst to Seventh-Heaven:

'The more you shall honor Me,
the more I shall bless you'
-the Infant Jesus of Prague
(<- Czech Republic, next to Russia)

Love him or leave him or indifferent...
better lissen to the Don:

If you deny o'er-the-Hillary's evil,
which most whorizontal demokrakkrs do,
you cannot deny Hellfire
which YOU send YOURSELF to.

Yes, earthling, I was an NDE:
the sights were beyond extreme.
Choose Jesus.
You'll be most happy you did.
God bless your indelible soul.
