Why are the Republicans STILL holding rallies?

1. always on the offensive.
When you let down your guard and play defense or work for compromise you end up like the Democrats

3. Oh come now. The real repugs are MUCH, MUCH worse.
They veil and conceal their racism just enough that it is palatable to the white, upper middle class voters who are supposedly helped by their sicko policies.

At least the Klan deserve a little credit for being HONEST about what they are.

(But they are little punks for hiding their faces.)

4. "Welfare mothers picking up checks in Cadillacs"
-St. Ronnie. Easily the most racist thing ever said in public by a US president.

5. Of course, I don't think all repugs actually BELIEVE in racism.
Many of them couldn't care less what color a person is, and they don't mind having a few faces of color admitted to their little elite club. But they are all supremely greedy and cynical above all else, and they all USE racism to pit poor whites and poor people of color against each other, and to continue to concentrate all wealth in their their own, mostly white hands.

And it still works every time...

The Klan, on the other hand are true believers.
