Why do racist organizations like the KKK and Nazi movement vote republican?

Historically speaking, democrats were slave traders. I know that goes back, way back to a couple of hundred of years, but what has changed since then that these racists overwhelming support the Republican party today?

    The answer to your question is the Republicans' "Southern strategy".  That's what changed.  Since 2016, nearly all neo-nazis and white racists have run under the Republican Party banner with the full support and encouragement of RNC leadership. 

     “Trump had me at ‘build a wall,’” nazi leader Andrew Anglin told the Times in September, 2016. “Virtually every alt-right Nazi I know is volunteering for the Trump campaign.”  And, in fact, nazis did work for the Trump campaign in a number of states.

    Historically, Democrats created the KKK, therefore, they do not support the Republican party............unless they just can't stand today'd Democrats.

    Because even though they were founded by DEMOCRITS they have realised all the lies they have been told and FALSE PROMISES from the Democrits are just that.. FALSE PROMISES for things which never come to pass.

    Plus they think more for the AMERICAN CITIZEN then ILLEGALS.

    Historically speaking, Democrats created the KKK after they lost the war to keep their slaves. They then invented Jim Crow to keep their former slaves in line. Democrats filibustered 75 DAYS to stop the Civil Rights Act of 1964 from becoming law. It was Republicans who passed it. That's not going that far back.

    Actually the almost defunct (extinct) KKK was the Democrat party militia in the late 19th century and early 20th century through the 1960's.  They not only violently attacked african-americans, they also attacked Republican politicians.  In a few southern states Republicans created militias to counter the KKK.  After the 1960's the KKK really had no political party affiliation, they just maintained a white supremacy movement from becoming extinct.  Really they are so few today it is silly to even talk about them.  It is like the black-american hebrew israelite racists, just call them crazy.

    Actually the Middle East were the original slave traders they bought the slaves from other black chieftains you just didn’t go back far enough in history

    And if you back any further you’ll also see that the Egyptian used blacks to help build the pyramids

    History can be a valuable tool
