Hillary Clinton praised her mentor and good friend, as she called him, upon his death: “It is almost impossible to imagine the United States Senate without [him]. He was not just its longest serving member, he was its heart, its soul, and its historian. From my first day in the Senate, I sought out his guidance, and he was always generous with his time and his wisdom. After more than five decades of service, he left an indelible imprint on the Senate, on West Virginia, and on our nation. We will not see his like again,” she continued.
Exactly who was she talking about?
Robert C Byrd was an Exalted Cyclops of the KKK. Byrd wrote a letter in 1946 to the group's Imperial Wizard stating "The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia." He was the only senator to vote against both African American Supreme Court nominees. He voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Shame on you, Hillary,
STOP PLAYING THE RACE CARD.
