I wonder if this advertisement is from Fox News or Stephen Colbert? Does anyone on the planet buy this? (no, please don't answer that, it'll only make me sad)
A national black Republican group is running a radio advertisement accusing Democrats of starting the Ku Klux Klan and saying the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican, a claim challenged by civil-rights researchers. ... The spot begins with one woman telling another, "Dr. King was a real man. You know he was a Republican." ... In the ad, the woman goes on to say, "Democrats passed those black codes and Jim Crow laws. Democrats started the Ku Klux Klan." Her companion replies, "The Klan? White hoods and sheets?" ... The first woman also says, "Democrats fought all civil rights legislation from the 1860s to the 1960s. Democrats released those vicious dogs and fire hoses on blacks."
The ad asserts that "Democrats want to keep us poor while voting only Democrat" and "Democrats want us to accept same-sex marriages, teen abortions without a parent's consent and suing the Boy Scouts for saying 'God' in their pledge."
About the Republicans, the ad says: "Republicans freed us from slavery and put our right to vote in the Constitution."
