Period! Saying he is sorry is too convenient, he is a politician who wants his job.Yes, democrats are bigots too…Such hypocrisy…

While he did oppose civil rights into the 1960’s, Byrd has since often renounced and apologized for the mistakes of his past. It’s unfortunate that some people still reflexively shout “KKK!” every time they hear Byrd’s name mentioned, like trained parrots. It’s a cheap shot by cowardly people.

Fact. But liberal media doesn’t like to remind us of that quaint little fact.Liberals racist? Oh, it can’t be true. That’s what we are told…

Is that true? Is he still in the KKK? How did he keep getting elected if he was in the KKK?
