Black Republicans start a nasty ad campaign

The National Black Republican Association has started running a hard-hitting radio attack ad against Democrats in Maryland. It is meant to benefit black GOP Senate candidate Micheal Steele. It alleges that MLK Jr. was a Republican and that Democrats founded the KKK. Ouch. These allegations are being disputed by Democrats and historical experts.

The Washington Post spoke to a University of Maryland political scientist who slammed the ad's "distortions."

"It is a totally fallacious rendition of the platform of the parties because, in effect, what happened is, the two parties essentially switched ideology," Ronald Walters said.

Democrats did found the KKK and in years past most Blacks were Republican. The Republicans even adopted the elephant as a totem to remind them never to forget the treason and bigotry of the Southern Democrats.

Then Nixon had his Southern Strategy and brought Fascism, Bigotry, and Theocracy to be a Republican trademark, and, especially in the South, everybody traded sides.

Having totally forgotten the reason for the elephant, they should now take the hippo as a true totem, and change their name to Hippocrats.
