Trump is being dragged over the coals for his umming and arring over condemning an ex KKK member but the online hacktivist group Anonomous brought to our attention a 2010 video posted by the U.S. Department of State on YouTube showing Clinton talk extremely highly of the passing of her friend, a former high ranking Klan member!
Former U.S. Senator Robert Byrd crcurited for the Klan in te 40s, he became an “Exalted cyclops” and pushed racist rhetoric for decades, he was also the longest filibuster ever against the Civil Rights Act.
The Anonymous News post stated that Byrd once announced:
“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.”
When he passed in 2010 Hilary really went the extra yard in expressing her sadness. She says “Senator Byrd was a man of surpassing eloquence and nobility.” And, “It is almost impossible to imagine the United States Senate without Robert Byrd. He was not only its longest serving member. He was its heart, its soul, and it’s historian.”
Watch the video below, do you think this is ok and the man’s past acts should be put aside? In recent years he had tried to distance himself from the past, he apologized and said it was a mistake but is this enough. Should ex-Klan members be stopped from being senators?
