    -- Former Klansman and current US Senator Robert Byrd, a man who is referred to by many Democrats as the "conscience of the Senate", in a letter written in 1944, after he quit the KKK.

    No doubt he regretted his membership, which he apparently ended in 1943; but still filibustered passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. What a hero.
    Byrd is a hero to no one, except perhaps the Far Right - who trot him out every time right wing racism is mentioned. Southern conservative Democrats of his era are exactly the same scum as right wing racist Republicans. The only difference is the southern conservative scum were more honest about their racism.

    Islam is more than a religion. It is a political movement and a social movement that is unmatched by any other religion. To describe it simply as 'a religion' is naÔve.

    You do realize my link is from 2001 and your statements are from him while he was still believed in a segregated America? Your articles do absolutely nothing to distort the fact that he did apologize for his actions. Tough nut.

    Yes, and he was talking about his involvement in the KKK, but 20 years after that he was against civil rights. You want to ignore that, go ahead; and you probably already have.

    You democrats let that old son of a bitch sit in the US Senate for 40 years after his KKK days and then he comes up with that "white niggers" **** on national TV and it's perfectly OK with you people? You are ridiculous.

    There was a Supreme Court justice with KKK affiliations.

    His name was Hugo black

    Yes sir...the SOB was thinking about standing in front of GOD, his maker, and decided he better apologize before it happened. Lots of sincerity right there.

    And obviously had the approval of our U.S. Congress...eh?

    He was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, with outrage ensuing over Black's former membership with the Ku Klux Klan. Black served on the court for 34 years, known for his ardent support of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. (I guess with the exception of black America)
    He died on September 25, 1971.
