Well... thank you but the KKK was started by Democrats. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26741443
the KKK was created by Albert Pike
on orders and funding from the Vatican
and the Pope.
the Knights of the Golden Circle
was the pre-cursor of the KKK.
Albert Pike and John Wilkes Booth
were both Masons and members of the
KGC. Lincoln was assassinated by
order of the Pope. The Pope gave
Pike $5K, then Pike gave Booth
$1,500 of that to do the job.
We know this because of banking
records kept. the day before
Lincoln was shot Booth created
an account in the local bank
with a $1,500 check from Pike.
He deposited $1K of it and kept
$500 of it for travel expenses
and a flintlock pistol.
After the assassination of Lincoln,
the KGC got a bad reputation then Pike
changed it's name to the KKK.
Today, Pike has a memorial in DC.
The ONLY Confederate General to have
one, not even Robert E Lee was recognized
