Relationship with KKK O.k. if for politics says Clinton
Well, now I’ve heard it all. Only a “we love diversity…Republicans are racist…now please vote for us” Dem could get away with this. Well, maybe not a Dem…maybe just Slick Willy. Clinton, speaking at some memorial for Senator Robert Byrd, says being associated with the KKK is a-o.k., as long as the reason is getting elected.
Incredible. Absolutely incredible. And that “fleeting association?” He started a chapter with 150 of his closest friends! He even wrote in a 1945 letter,
that he would never fight in the armed forces ‘with a Negro by my side.’ Byrd added that, ‘Rather I should die a thousand times, and see old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels.’
Only a Democrat could downplay overt racism and receive applause.
Oh, and the “making it up” he did during the rest of his life? Steering billions in federal money to pet-projects in West Virgina, like a giant statue of himself. Who knows, Byrd’s death alone might balance the federal budget.
