Ku Klux Klan: The Price to Pay for Democrat to Get Elected

8 Jul

It must really be nice to be a Democrat.  Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia was laid to rest recently.  At his funeral, former Democrat President, Bill Clinton, spoke and addressed Robert Byrd’s “fleeting association” with the Ku Klux Klan in his early years.  Why was he a member of the Ku Klux Klan you ask?  To get elected, of course. According to Bill Clinton, Robert Byrd was a “country boy from the hills and hollers of West Virginia and he was trying to get elected.”  But, on the bright side, Senator Byrd did “spend the rest of his life making it up and that’s what a good person does.”  No one’s perfect, right?

Senator Byrd was not only a member of the Ku Klux Klan, he was also a recruiter.  Additionally, he filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1965, opposed the nomination of the liberal African-American supreme court justice, Thurgood Marshall, in 1967, and once denounced civil rights leader Martin Luther King as a “self-seeking rabble rouser.”  Senator Byrd finally came to his senses in 1982, after a teenage grandson was killed in a road accident, which caused him to say “the death of my grandson caused me to stop and think. I came to realize that black people love their children as much as I do mine.”  Nice.

I wonder what the reaction would have been if Republicans had a former KKK member as a Senator for the past few decades?  I wonder what would happen if a former Republican president spoke at his funeral and made excuses for his membership into the KKK?  What would the reaction be if the crowd wildly applauded those excuses being made?

Just one more example in the long and growing list of liberal hypocrisy. They go out of their way to paint Republicans as racists any chance they get.  Yet, the Democrats have had a former KKK member in the Senate for decades, and no one seems to mind.  It’s hard to imagine the “do as I say, not as I do” Democrats or the Democrat media having any less credibility than they currently have.  But, I know more will come.
