The current KKK (since 1915) has traditionally supported so-called “Progressive Democrats” as Democrats who believe in big coercive government liked to be called. The first “progressive”, Woodrow Wilson, was supported by the KKK.
In the last week Will Quigg, a grand dragon of the Ku Klux Klan’s California chapter, told the Telegraph Monday that he would be switching his support from Donald Trump to Clinton.
“We want Hillary Clinton to win,” he said. “She is telling everybody one thing, but she has a hidden agenda. She’s telling everybody what they want to hear so she can get elected, because she’s Bill Clinton’s wife, she’s close to the Bushes. Once she’s in the presidency, she’s going to come out and her true colors are going to show. Border policies are going to be put in place. Our second amendment rights that she’s saying she’s against now, she’s not against. She’s just our choice for the presidency.”
In 1924 the Democrat Convention was so dominated by the KKK it was called the Klan Bake convention.
There are myths on this issue. The winner of the 1988 Democrat Vice President race in New Hampshire was not Al Gore, it was David Duke. Yes that David Duke, former national leader (Grand Wizard) of the Ku Klux Klan.
In 1988, Duke ran initially in the Democratic presidential primaries. His campaign failed to make much of an impact, with the one notable exception of winning the New Hampshire Vice-Presidential primary.
David Duke was a Democrat when he was in the KKK. After he left the KKK he left the Democratic Party.
There has been no comment on this endorsement by Hillary Clinton.
