GOP and the Klan

Published: August 26, 2012, Author: JayTaber

Bigotry justified by ignorance isn’t limited to the Republican Party, but for American Indian women, biblical based racism foundational to the GOP is lethal. As Ryan Dreveskracht explains, the apartheid mindset that plagues American politics via the Republican Party exposes Indian women on reservations to preventable violence by whites. By forbidding tribal police from arresting white perpetrators of murder and rape on reservations, the GOP is encouraging vigilante vengeance, ironically something the Republican forebears in organizations like the Klan had a lot of experience at.
