Oversimplified answer: Birth of a Nation made it popular again. It was the 20's, & even a lot of people, even intellectuals & scientists, believed white, northern Europeans were the best, most evolved form of humanity.  For some reason, that grouping seems to have left out the Irish, I don't know why. The Klan always tried to put on a good show, claiming that they're not a violent group, that they're just trying to defend white culture, whatever.  Thumbdown

Folk song response to that last point, from the 60's:

Since this is a meme thread, I'm going to try to move past that nastiness. Here's the latest comic from xkcd:

Can I ask a question without it spiraling out of control?

Why would Coca-Cola have given the KKK free drinks, let alone boasted about it?

I don't think the hateful agenda of the Klan represented the values of enough Americans for it to be worth a company's time, let alone be something a company would want to associate itself with and risk alienating Jews, Catholics, blacks, and even WASPs who didn't subscribe to hate.

Anyone have insights there?

And real answers, please, not politics and ....

Fact: it's not "Coca-Cola" endorsing the Klan, it's "the Northern Coca-Cola Company of Michigan." Speculation: A local individual franchisee distributor probably was a racist and took it upon himself to act without endorsement from the parent company. 

But this is terribly off-topic.

Crazy times.

This is probably because I'm in Europe but I don't get this meme at all. I understand what an emotional support dog is and I know what a drone is, but I don't understand the connection and meaning of this. Is the name Ralph of any importance? Question

No, Ralph is not important. What's important is the look on the dog's face, which accidentally resembles the face of someone who's bored and barely paying attention while the owner is droning on (defined as "speaking tediously in a dull monotonous tone").

Ahh ok, I misunderstood the drone part I guess. How silly of me, but then again I'm not familiar with that expression. Thanks for the explanation.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
