Speaking of Inconvenient Truths: Would you believe KKK member Robert Byrd was one of @HillaryClinton’s “homies?”
He wasn’t just a member, he was an “Exalted Cyclops,” one of the highest levels of KKK leadership.
In the early 1940’s, Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to create a new chapter of the Ku Klux Klan in Sophia, West Virginia.
According to Byrd, a Klan official told him:
“You have a talent for leadership, Bob … The country needs young men like you in the leadership of the nation.”
Byrd later recalled,
“Suddenly lights flashed in my mind! Someone important had recognized my abilities! I was only 23 or 24 years old, and the thought of a political career had never really hit me. But strike me that night, it did.”
Byrd became a recruiter and leader of his chapter. When it came time to elect the top officer (Exalted Cyclops) in the local Klan unit, Byrd won unanimously.
In December 1944, Byrd wrote to segregationist Mississippi Senator Theodore G. Bilbo:
“I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side … 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, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”
— Robert C. Byrd, in a letter to Sen. Theodore Bilbo (D-MS), 1944
He was also the President pro tempore of the United States Senate
In office January 3, 2007 – June 28, 2010
Liberals really hate it when we remind them of their shady past. It gives you, the reader some perspective on their shady present as well as their shady future. If most modern Liberals knew of the history of their past, they would leave the Democratic party in large numbers. The only way we can accomplish this is if everybody reading this TRUTH shares it.
