Tim Kaine may be the most clueless person ever to grace the national political stage. In defending Hillary’s ridiculous “basket of deplorables” gaffe he blindly ignored her deeply racist past. In reality, his quote puts Hillary into that basket if deplorables. Speaking about Hillary Rotten Clinton, moronic Tim Kaine said “She advanced the notion that if you’re chumming around with the head of the Klu-Klux-Klan or people who had that title, that’s deplorable. You gotta call that out.”
Of course neither Trump nor Pence has ever chummed around with any Klan members or leaders. The same cannot be said for the Clinton’s.
In 2010 Hillary said “Today our country has lost a true American original, my friend and mentor Robert C. Byrd.” Robert Byrd was a long standing member and leader in the KKK who fought against the Civil Rights Act. We’ll talk a bit more about this piece of human filth later, but for now let’s focus on the Clinton’s humming around with him.
Hillary also said “Senator Byrd was a man of surpassing eloquence and nobility. It is almost impossible to imagine the United States Senate without Robert Byrd. He was not only its longest serving member. He was its heart, its soul, and it’s historian.” Hillary thinks the heart and soul of the U.S. Senate was a KKK leader? Let’s not forget that during that time in Congress he fought AGAINST Civil Rights. Crooked Hillary’s comments must have had Byrd giggling from his place down in hell.
Bill Clinton defended Byrd’s service to the KKK saying “He was a country boy from the hills and hollows of West Virginia. He was trying to get elected.” See? It is OK to be a racist and oppressor as long as it benefits your career as a Democrat politician.
Now, about this truly deplorable and vile man the Clinton’s so loved.
Byrd joined the KKK in the early 1940’s by starting a new chapter for West Virginia. Byrd recruited 150 other members and was elected to the highest post of “Exalted Cyclops.”
Shortly after Byrd wrote a letter to a Grand Wizard stating, “The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia and in every state in the nation.”
In 1945 complaining about efforts to integrate the military Byrd wrote a letter that stated, “I shall never fight in the armed forces 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.”
While serving in Congress, Byrd set the record for longest filibuster on the floor of the U.S. Senate with a 14-hour filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Long after Byrd claimed to disavow the KKK in 2001, he caused controversy and had to apologizefor using the phrase “white niggers” in an interview. “There are white niggers,” he said. “I’ve seen a lot of white niggers in my time.”
If there is a basket of deplorables Hillary and Bill Clinton are sitting in it chumming around with their KKK buddy Byrd.
