Crippled America PAC, the group behind the stunt, operates a website named KKKlinton.com.
The site is basically a photo of Clinton with the late Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.), another picture of Byrd with a klan outfit photoshopped on him coupled with this message…
“This image is of Hillary Clinton kissing Senator Robert Byrd who was, until his death, an avid racist who Hillary Clinton praised at his funeral and throughout her Husband’s presidential runs”
What the site leaves out is that although Senator Byrd was indeed a member of the KKK in the 1940's he disavowed his affiliation decades before his death and went on to become majority leader of the Senate and the longest-serving senator.
Byrd admitted it would forever be an “albatross“ around his neck and in 2005 stated...
“I know now I was wrong. Intolerance had no place in America. I apologized a thousand times ... and I don’t mind apologizing over and over again. I can’t erase what happened.”
For further proof Byrd was a changed man when he died in 2010, the NAACP put out a statement praising Byrd for how far he had come from his racist youth with then-NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous saying…
“Senator Byrd reflects the transformative power of this nation. Senator Byrd went from being an active member of the KKK to a being a stalwart supporter of the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act and many other pieces of seminal legislation that advanced the civil rights and liberties of our country.”
Do you think the NAACP would say anything remotely approaching this if Senator Byrd was in any way associated with the Ku Klux Klan!?!?
