A Senator's Shame
"Closet Klan member"? Where's your evidence for that? Can you prove he WAS a member post-1952?Confronting the issue, Byrd went on the radio to acknowledge that he belonged to the Klan from "mid-1942 to early 1943," according to newspaper accounts. He explained that he had joined "because it offered excitement and because it was strongly opposed to communism." He said that after about a year, he quit and dropped his membership, and never was interested in the Klan again.
Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
Senator Byrd put his record on the line ...not just his word.
Your hobby seems to be proving your ignorance on public forums.
The Democrats have always been and STILL are a racist party.
Whether it was from racist laws in the South like Jim Crow or racist organizations like the KKK or through insidious policies that trap and control people of color, their agenda has always centered around the control of the minority population.
Now they use false narratives and false charges of racism in addition to a perpetuating a victim mentallity to control minorities.
In the end the effect is the same. Dependance for the purpose of control and power.
Tell me, are places like the Robert Taylor Homes, Cabrini Green, South side of Chicago and Magnolia place in New Orleans the consequence of Conservative policies ?
Under decades of isolated Democrat rule in places like Detroit, are minorities better or worse off ?
In Chicago which has been run by Democrats for years are minorities safer and more independent, less impberished or are they ignored ?
Under Obama, the first black president has economic conditions for minorities improved or gotten worse ?
Sorry, but you can accuse the right wing of racism all you want, the fact is there is a long and established history of Democrat policies that are enacted exclusively to pray upon minorities and keep them poor and dependant.
