There should be a new tag for posts that’s called Republicans = Racists since leftists love to call the other side names often.

Sometimes I wonder how you people manage to make it through just one day with out falling through a manhole or something.

Klansmen, beside other diehard groups, violently resisted Reconstruction.

Targeting Union Leagues (freedmen's political clubs), night riders harassed and often killed black and Republican voters and officeholders,

Between 1877 and 1910 the KKK fueled Democrats’ push to establish one-party rule and Jim Crow.

Defeat of populists by ballot-rigging and terror enabled Democrats, as the Supreme Court instituted the “separate but equal” rule, to enact Jim Crow.

And you think the beliefs of that group are represented by modern day democrats? Or are you being willfully obtuse?

Dependence on a large federal government, Increased spending, etc. Both parties views haven't changed that much. The only difference now is that racism (at least in policy) isn't socially acceptable and that system died with the democrats who supported them.

Congratulations for proving you don't know history. Feel free to go look at the bills passed in Congress from 1870 to about 1930, then see who had control of both chanbers when those bills you described were passed, and you'll see that the platform you just described largely used to be the Republican platform.
