"...shows the Ku Klux Klan is still very powerful in Democratic politics." Sorry. A big chunk of the Southern reactionary loon element moved from the Democratic column to the GOP in the years after the civil rights legislation of the 1960s. Read up on the "Southern Strategy" and marvel at what a gain that shift was for the Democrats and what a loss it was for the GOP, which increasingly resembles a gaggle of crusty old men at a Confederate retirement home.
