RIP/Good Riddence to Robert "KKK" Byrd
West Virgina Democratic senator Robert Byrd is dead at 92.
Byrd was a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and had opposed the 1964 civil rights act.He also opposed the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
People need to remember history as it really happened.
Byrd and fellow Dems opposed civil rights. FDR was endorsed by both the KKK and the American Communist Party.
It was scary to think that this monster was third in the line of presidential succession, behind Vice President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Of course those others are equally as frightening.
But there was stilla sliver of good in this man. He played a mean fiddle.
