    ”STROM THURMOND, FOE OF INTEGRATION, DIES AT 100.”

    vs

    “ROBERT BYRD, RESPECTED VOICE OF THE SENATE, DIES AT 92.”


    “Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina, a one-time Democratic segregationist who helped fuel the rise of the modern conservative Republican Party in the South, died Thursday."

    vs

    “Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virgina, a fiery orator versed in the classics and a hard-charging power broker who steered billions of federal dollars to the state of his Depression-era upbringing, died Monday. He was 92.”






    Gotta love the mainstream liberal media. Never let a dishonest moment go by, even with memorials.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Who knows? I don't really care since I dislike both Dems and Repubs pretty much equally. I don't really care to speculate who would have said what if xyz happened since I'm not sure how that's helpful or constructive.

    Other than FDR and LBJ, you would be hard pressed to find someone who is more responsible for the deficit than that clown

    And nowhere will you see me condoning his pork habit. Now those who act like he is still a KKK type, that is a different manner.

He made a mistake and he came to understand and acknowledge that. Who here hasn't changed their views over the years?
    Name the Republican who was in the KKK who was lauded by Democrats and revered as a great leader.

    You mean like when Byrd got a free pass for talking about white niggers?

    Yes, that's a clear sign of a "reformed" Klansman, isn't it.

    Hint: Byrd has been reformed for less than 24 hours.

    My personal view on racism, Byrd and the south:

    Just because people around you do something doesn't mean you have to. . . Ad Populum is not an excuse!
    If you're a moral, decent person from the get go then you will distance yourself from all wrong doing. . . no matter what climate you're in or what pressure you feel.

    I'll never forgive or excuse Byrd's involvement - shed a tear, say "boohoo" or anything of that nature. He was a politician and politicians will do ANYTHING to get VOTES! When the slaves were emancipated many people who were against them suddenly supported them - because they wanted their VOTES. Obviously his constant churning for support kept him in the running for 50 years too damn long.

    Sorry - there are some offenses that are unforgivable to me. . . and being a racist **** in the KKK is one of them.

    If he was, at heart, a decent man then God will figure that out

    To be honest - the only reason why he became a Democrat and claimed to support Obama was because he felt guilty for all the heinous activity he supported and the vile thoughts he continually harbored in his heart and mind. . . . like an addict who can't stop, but knows it's wrong to rob from his family to feed his "need"

    Why give him a slide because he "changed" ???
    Were Nazi's given a slide? Nope - they were given a rope.

    First Murtha, now this filth is removed from his position. I think God is trying to tell us either bring about term limits - or he will. Good riddance.
