Mississippi Republicans: the Klan Is Reborn
Fact: A plurality of Republicans in Mississippi want them made illegal once more.
Mississippi Republicans are some of the sickest creatures to ever crawl out of the paw-paw patch. Their governor, that good 'ole boy Haley Barbour, is a true successor to Ross Barnett. Haley has nothing but fond memories of his youth in a segregated Mississippi. When David Duke wanted to hold a Ku Klux Klan rally in 2008 he could think of no more receptive place than Mississippi.
Racism lives on in the most backward state in the Union. They are still lynching blacks in Mississippi. White sheriffs have learned to call them "suicides" and sweep the murders under the carpet.
