Wasn’t there a bit of a row over Strom Thurmond’s retirement, and comments from Trent Lott about him? If I recall rightly, folks got all bent out of shape because of Thurmand’s past, and charges of racism abounded.

But here comes Hillary, honoring a member of the KKK.

I won’t even bother re-re-re-posting the quotes.
The hell I won’t.

“…there are white niggers. I’ve seen a lot of white niggers in my time.”

Was he talking about whites who act like blacks, I wonder? Years after Byrd supposedly renounced the Klan, he wrote in a letter, he would never fight…

…”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.”

It was Byrd who fought against the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act — an act which was supported by the supposedly racist Republicans – and fillibustered it for over than 14 hours.I wonder if he mentioned
his little dog, Billy.  Byrd also worked against the nominations of the Supreme Court’s two black justices, Thurgood Marshall and Clarence Thomas.

Hitlery supporting this guy is OK, but Lott supporting Strom Thurmond was racist?
