Does anyone refer to the Chicago Bears as the "World Champion Chicago Bears" these days?
Of course not, the Bears last won the Superbowl in 1986.
So, I was a bit taken aback the other night when a radio political commentator referred to the Democrats as the "Party of the KKK".
While, once upon a time, the KKK and Democrats had overlapping membership, that hasn't been true since 1948 when the Dixicrats left the Democrats over the Democrats adopting "Civil Rights" as a plank of their platform.
Like sports teams, political parties change over time. To call the Democrats the "Party of the KKK" in an attempt to sway black voters in the 2016 election is to ignore the last ~65 years.
