Ted Cruz claims Democrats created the Ku Klux Klan.

Cruz: Democrats created the Klan.

Mass Appeal Wire Reports

AUSTIN — If you’re a registered voter and/or an advocate of the Democratic party, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz believes you should reconsider your affiliation. That’s because, contrary to popular opinion, Cruz says Democrats [not Republicans] are the political group deep rooted in racism. “The Democrats are the party of the Ku Klux Klan,” Cruz (R-Tex.) said in an interview on Fox News on Wednesday. “You look at the most racist — you look at the Dixiecrats, they were Democrats who imposed segregation, imposed Jim Crow laws, who founded the Klan. The Klan was founded by a great many Democrats.”

The controversial rant comes in defense of Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions’ nomination for U.S. Attorney.  Cruz, by the way, isn’t the first Republican to link the Democratic Party with the Ku Klux Klan. In 2013, Virginia Sen. Stephen Martin claimed Democrats created the infamous hate group.

Do you believe Cruz?

Are Democrats and the Klan tied together?

  1. The Democratic Party is the worst part of our government, shame on them and their horrific deeds.

  2. Trump 8 years, then Cruz !!!

  3. Ted Cruz is a joke. He’s basically saying since the last administration acted immorally we get to as well. Lets place Federal Judge reject Jeff Sessions as AG.Jeff Sessions should have been banned from being able to hold government offices in 1986.

    Not a fan of Cruz for President but as a Senator we love him. Excited that he is highlighting democrats’ hypocrisy!!! maybe democrats will follow laws next time they are in power instead of making up their own rules that obviously is hurting them now.

  8. Remember Cruz is only acting like a Republican ‼️Because he wants to run for president later on‼️we know your a shill he is acting for the cameras he is bought and paid for💯like Paul Ryan john mcain and many others that need to go,🎯

  9. Believe it or not most Black Americans have no idea that the party they currently support was the same party that advocated to keep them in chains and once they were released from chains. The same Democrat Party created the KKK and Planned Parent to exterminate them.

  10. Stop living in the past, Ted Cruz. Republicans are the party of the KKK right Fucking NOW!

    it’s the truth. dems are the kkk.

  12. Copy and paste this response I made to the racist Republicans that will tell you that Democrats are the racist party, it’s just that minorities are too stupid to realize it and that’s why they get their vote (that’s what their argument is):

    KKK are Republicans today. By the time the 1980s came, every single democrat voted in favor of civil rights and only Republicans voted against civil rights. Look no further than the civil rights restoration act, which only republicans voted against. It was then vetoed by the racist president Ronald Reagan, who opposed every single civil rights law/legislation. KKK has endorsed Republicans since 1960 when they supported Nixon due to his stance to not use government to force businesses to desegregate (known as civil rights). Reagan supported (and fought for while in office) interracial marriage opposition groups such as Bob Jones racist church in South Carolina. Reagan fought to protect their racist bans on interracial marriage. Reagan lost at the Supreme Court with a 8-1 ruling. They oppose the voting rights act today and refuse to reinstate it. They oppose the 1965 immigration act today and have fought to limit this immigration that does not have racial quotas.

  13. but then they also claim to be the party of Abe Lincoln, but none of the confederate states voted him in. Abe was elected by the progressive north.

    The right really needs to stop with this easily disprovable bullshit. Yes the founders of the KKK were democrats, but everything changed after the civil rights act and Nixon’s southern strategy. After those events all the overt racists (Dixiecrats) migrated to the Republican Party where they remain today. They need to stop thinking anyone other than themselves is dumb enough to believe this shit, and I’m not even a democrat.
