Republicans Outlawed KKK 137 Years Ago

Grand Old Partisan notes this historic day in American history.

The Ku Klux Klan assassinated many Republicans including Republican Representative James M. Hinds (December 5, 1833—October 22, 1868) of Little Rock. Hinds represented Arkansas in the United States Congress from June 24, 1868 through October 22, 1868.

Unfortunately, there is still one sitting senator, Democrat Robert Byrd of West Virginia, who was a a kleagle recruiter for this outlawed terrorist organization.
